The $66 Internet Profit Systems Challenge is over. 66 days have passed and this first chapter in my quest to earn an extra income from home is closed.
So, how did I do? Did I launch my career as an internet entrepreneur by making my first $66?
The $66 Internet Profit Systems Challenge – The story so far;
Total Spend : $1.00
When I launched the $66 Internet Profit Systems Challenge I was seeking to attract traffic and create backlinks to this blog and my Squidoo page : Income from Home – The $66 Challenge. As part of my efforts I paid $1 to submit a press release to a distribution service. This is the only cash investment I have made in my attempt to start to earn an extra income working from home.
Earnings at Day 66 : $30.58
On the final day of the $66 Internet Profit Systems Challenge I have made the grand total of $30.58.
58 cents was my first payment from the revenue share site Squidoo. Read all about my first Squidoo payday.
The lions share of my extra income – $30 – has come from articles I have written for Demand Studios. At a rate of $15 per article my first two articles were published via Demand Studios on the eHow website. Once accepted by Demand Studios I have found writing for eHow to be a reliable, efficient and relatively easy way to start earning an extra income. As examples of the kind of work you can pick up through Demand Studios my first two published articles were:
Balance at Day 66 : $29.58
Although the $66 Internet Profit Systems Challenge finished on Day 66 (31st January 2011) I had not yet been paid for all of the work that I have completed during the 66 day period.
A further $30 from Demand Studios
On the 31st January 2011 I had 3 articles outstanding with Demand Studios, this means that my writing has been submitted for review by the Demand Studios editors and is pending acceptance.
I’m happy to say that in the few days since 31st January two of these articles have been accepted adding a further $30 to the income from home pot.
I am still awaiting news on my final article.
Two Squidoo Paydays Remain
Beyond this extra income from Demand Studios I have the pleasure of two further Squidoo Paydays. Like most revenue share sites Squidoo pay in arrears. The $66 Internet Profit Systems Challenge ran through December 2010 to the end of January 2011. I will be paid monthly revenue share for the performance of my Squidoo lenses during these months on 15th February and 15th March respectively.
$59.58 and counting…
And so the story continues, will my final article for Demand Studios be accepted, rejected or returned for a rewrite? How much will the next two Squidoo Paydays add to the income from home pot?
On 15th March 2011 the final tally will be made and the book will close on the $66 in 66 Days Internet Profit Systems Challenge.
