Online Earning Plan Update
As many of you know I have been building my business and income levels up for a while now using my £2500 per month income plan. Todays post is to provide you with an update about my progress towards this goal.
In my Online Earning Plan Update – Oct 2017 blog post I reported having an amazing month where everything just felt like it was falling into place. November has been equally exciting for me and I have some major updates!
The first update is a little change to how I will be reporting my progress. In that October report I added a few extra things and took away a few too. By doing that I realised there are some things I am not taking account of by only talking about income. My house for example is not going to be providing me with an income for a little while, however it will be increasing in value. Also because I am using some of my earnings to invest into other things it is the value of those that is changing first, then they provide income. For this reason I am going to start including a Wealth Report.
My Wealth Report is also a way to help motivate me to use my increasing income in a productive way.

My Wealth Report
I have to say it is a little difficult to know what to include in a wealth report at first. Basically it will be the overall value of my assets minus any liabilities (or debts). There are a few things I have no idea what the value is right now however, so my first step is to find out, and I am working on that already.
House – I have very little idea of the current value of my house so I have contacted the rates office to come and do an inspection. This also has the added benefit of opening the door to potential grants for repair. I could get a valuation done by some estate agents too and I will look into this as well. I do still have a mortgage to pay on my house so when I find out the current value I can compare the two figures (and hope for a positive value).
Property Partner – In addition to my own house I did join a company called property partner a while ago and I got £50 free to invest in that. I have not added any more to this account and I had forgotten about it before I started thinking about my assets to be honest. I was delighted to find my free £50 has increased in value to £53.32.
Car & Bike – My car and motorbike are both certainly assets but I have no idea of the value right now. Those are on my list to check!
Online Accounts – I am in the process of checking these and so far I have found £1367 with others yet to check.
That makes £1420.32 my current baseline measurement. For my own protection I will not report my full wealth value every month and instead opt for an increase or decrease amount. As this is my first time counting I will count this as an increase (as I have £1420.32 more now than I knew I had 😉 ) Ok so I know thats cheating a little bit but hey its good to start on a positive!
Next I move on to my personal income level which involves using multiple income streams. I continue to have an earning target for each type of income I am working on.
Clicking and Survey Sites
As always the first section I focus on for building income is Clicking and Survey Sites. I use these because they provide a GUARANTEED method of earning a small amount of money. Then, using my Zero2earninghero System I invest this small amount to create a great monthly income.
I now have a target of £50 per month from clicking and survey sites. I have to admit I am struggling a bit to keep track of earnings again so have a bit of a plan… you will now see screenshots below. This of course allows you to see my earnings from each site rather than just me tell you what it is 🙂 . Not sure why I didn’t do this before actually!
For this section of my income I am now using:
Clixsense – target is $5 per month.
In November I earned $0.57 which is down considerably from $4.84 the previous month. I am just not using Clixsense at the minute.
Gifthulk – target is now $5 per month.
In November I made $3.73 on Gifthulk by 25th Nov so that is increasing a bit I think!
Swagbucks – target is £10 per month.
In November I earned £15 which is down a bit from last month. I just got tired of doing surveys this month!
Inbox Pounds – target is £2 per month.
In November I earned £0 which isn’t surprising when I didn’t even visit the site this month.
Mintvine (now changing to become Branded Surveys)– target is $5 per month.
In November I don’t know what I earned on this site. I was planning on doing at least the daily poll each day on here to get the bonus and just didn’t manage it at all!
One Poll – target is £3 per month.
In November I earned £2.85 . I think I was most consistent on this site in November and logged in most days. I have my eye on the £40 claim from here to add to Zopa 😉
Populus Live -target is £10 per month.
In November I earned £3 . I even ignored invites for populus surveys this month as wasn’t in the mood to do them. Thats quite unheard of for me as populus is so well paid!
Panelbase – target is £10 per month.
In November I earned nothing on Panelbase as I didn’t log in here either in November.
You Gov – target is £5 per month.
In November I earned 50p on You Gov. I am close to making another claim on here so want to aim for that in December!
Global Test Market – target is £5 per month.
In November I earned £0 as this is another site I didn’t use this month.
Valued Opinions target is £5 per month.
In November I earned 75p which is also quite far under target.
Maximiles is another site I use sometimes to watch videos and complete surveys. I did a little earning on this one during November – around £2 earned and claimed £25 from it.
As you can see my targets and my income on these sites varied quite a bit as usual. I did just get a bit fed up with surveys this month and could have made a lot more had I pushed myself, but I don’t like doing that too much.
My total earnings from clicking and survey sites was $4.30 = £3.22 + £23.35 . A total of £26.57 then was made on these sites. Obviously way off target this month for this part of my income, but its still another few pounds I can invest to help me make more 😉 Thats the beauty of my zero2earninghero system, it all builds up over time anyway!
Target Earning – £500 per month which is around $650.
I had several packs mature again this month and my total went down to 44 x $50 packs and 6 x $10.
I am still working on maintaining 50 x $50 packs and 10 x $10 packs which is my target for this site. In November my earnings were $577.67 or £428.77 as shown below. I did have a lot of packs mature and so put the majority of my earnings back in. Thankfully this should even out next month however, as I have very few packs due to end then. I am still considering increasing my pack total but have not decided yet.
I think I would like to get my packs spread out a bit to avoid the same thing happening in another few months. Its a good idea to stick to purchasing 1 pack at a time on here in my opinion, to stop a lot maturing all at once. It is a bit of a shock when they do!
I finally have made a small start on personal selling again now. Its been rather difficult with moving house and trying to work on the refurbishment of the house I own. I have now added the shop feature to my Truly Quirky Me Facebook page and hope that will help me manage things a bit better in terms of selling my own stuff. Just some small sales on Ebay to report this month but hopefully it will be better next time 😉
Total earned: £127
During November I began working on my affiliate marketing plan. I have made arrangements with a few specific companies which compliment my blog very well and I have started to see some results from these already. It is a slow process to update posts and links etc, however the fact I am getting positive results so quickly is very reassuring.
My plan for December is to continue to focus on 3 affiliate programs and write some blog posts about them. I will also be updating old posts with links too.
I have to be honest here and say I could make a lot more money by promoting things for sale on this blog and my Facebook page etc. It just doesn’t fit with my own ethos for the blog though so I can’t see me going down that route any time soon. I might add some things to my Facebook Page as I will be selling on there again anyway. For the blog though I prefer to stick with promoting items to help people earn more from working from home. I am quite happy with the limits that places on my affiliate income.
My poor little Zopa account is still earning me pennies at the minute and is set to automatically re-invest any money repaid from loans. I feel a bit like I am neglecting one of my kids with this account right now lol!! It will get a nice deposit soon though 😉 There is now £129.17 in this account.
My Bitcoin income is growing slowly but surely as I expected it would.
BTC Clicks account has now been upgraded for 180 days, earning me double from my clicks and referrals. I have done a bit more clicking on ads this month to get me to the upgrade.
USI Tech I now have 5 packs for me, and I bought one pack for my mum on here. The earning is getting faster daily and I am sure I will be up to 10 packs for myself very soon. My plan is still to get to 10 packs through investment and repurchasing and then let the account build itself. I should be on 10 packs by next month without any problem as I will be investing from Future Net withdrawal.
My house is empty right now as I work on the refurbishment plans, so no income from it. I am now overpaying my mortgage though so this is adding to my overall financial health.
This month I have started working on GDI again and this is where my main update is this month. I originally joined GDI about a year ago now and added a few team members at the start. Due to my health and my focus on building other income sources I let this account go and was left with just 2 team members for quite a long time. This month I have implemented a brand new plan which I call my Viral Network Marketing Plan and as a result the team has exploded almost overnight.
I started working on the Viral Network Marketing Plan on 21st November and within a couple of days I had a lot of new team members, and some previously registered accounts reactivated.
I did not make any withdrawals this month, but I expect to have a nice amount to withdraw next month 😉
I have done a little gambling with minimum risk on JPJ this month, and added £160 to my income from doing that in November.
Total income for November: £1005.37 which is up quite nicely from my earnings of £740.03 last month and double the previous month.
Now I have hit my £1000 target it is time to aim for £1500 . I should be hitting that around January I would think. The fact my income has increased steadily over the last few months is very re-assuring I must admit. Gone are the days when my income was badly affected by my health, and I know it is just a matter of time before I hit my £2500 per month target. Onward and upwards!
During December I will:
- aim to earn £50 from my clicking and survey sites
- continue to invest into USI until I have 10 packs
- increase Futurenet back to 50 x $50 packs
- write blog posts using my current schedule
- continue with my marketing plans for my affilate earnings
- focus quite a bit on building GDI
- increase use of free and paid traffic sources
I’m really looking forward to it all, and of course seeing the results!
