A very Happy New Year to all my readers. 2021 was bucketloads of fun, and I have a lot of expectations from 2022. Especially for this site.
I hardly worked on this site from November onwards. Guess the holiday vibes got me!😉
Still, I ended up earning around 250$ from this site, and a couple extra from referral commissions. Thanks to you, my readers 😍.
As of now, I earn around 100$ a month passively from this website. 2022 is the year I will try to grow that to at least 1000$ passively. That is a considerable amount of money for a side project, in my country.
Even though I didn’t actively work on any site, I received several “surprise” payments. These made for some great festive payments.
So I decided to compile all these payments into a special, end-of-the-year post. Here are some sites that paid me towards the end.
Test IO (Functional Testing with lots of jobs)
They have a lot of projects to work on, and you can earn a good amount from them by testing various apps and websites. The only problem, you need to participate in 3 test runs (for free).
This can get frustrating for people, especially if you are not able to find bugs. I have some tips exactly for this. They will help you easily clear those 3 test runs and start earning.
This payment is for a mystery shopping project I am doing. I don’t consider it as work because I enjoy trying out new products and stuff.
While a majority of it is reimbursement for my purchases, I am also compensated for my time. I love how quickly they reimburse your purchases.
If you can manage to purchase around 300$ worth of goods on credit, you will definitely enjoy Mystery shopping jobs.
Clickworker (UHRS Jobs & Data Collection)
It also has data and voice collection projects every now and then. But they are not frequent enough. And to top it all off, they have a very nice and achievable referral program.
Even though I hardly work on UHRS now, I keep getting these commission payments. Pretty cool, right?
Testable Minds (Fun Psychology Studies)
First things first, You can not earn much from Testable Minds. It is a beer money site, at best.
But it is the most fun way to earn money I found online. You just participate in online psychology studies. And you don’t need to talk to anyone, so it is introvert-friendly as well.
SerpClix (another regular site)
Serpclix has become a regular as well. Received this payment just 12 hours before the end of 2021.
Probably my last payment of 2021. Nice little end-of-the-year gift 🎁
Ezoic (October & November earnings)
Ezoic serves ads on my website. It pays much better than Google Adsense, but does clutter up your website a bit.
October, November, and December are very profitable months in the world of advertising. Whilst my website used to earn 30$ per month before, I ended up earning an average of 90$ these past two months.
If you also own a website or blog, definitely consider monetizing it with Ezoic.
Ezoic payments take a month to process, so the December earnings can’t be included. But it was a fun run for the website.
Let’s see how much this website grows in 2022.
