May 2019 blogging and home income report

Income report - How I made £3,153.11 from home in May (1)

 

Please note, this blog post shares my total turnover for the month, before tax deductions and expenses.  My expenses differ each month as some are annual or quarterly payments, however my average monthly business expenses, tax savings, national insurance, etc,  are usually around £830.  Deduct this from the total for an idea of my take-home pay.

 

From smallest to largest:

GreenJinn    £1.90

GreenJinn is a smartphone app which has digital coupons for the main supermarkets Tesco, Sainsbury's and Waitrose.  Simply find a coupon you want to use, take a photo of your receipt once you've bought the item and within a day or so you'll get your cashback.  You can then cash it out to your PayPal account.

 

Shoppix        £5.00

I snap all my receipts on smart phone app Shoppix to collect points which I can then exchange for cash!

Shoppix freebie -  If you enter 52YFMN8U when you download the Shoppix app, we can both get 200 tokens when you snap a valid receipt and complete the profile survey!

Huyu (Tesco vouchers)   £5.00

My first cashout with receipt app HuYu!  They only offer giftcards and not cash, so I chose a £5 Tesco voucher which is perfect as I go there almost daily!

Swagbucks  £5.00

I also had my first cashout with Swagbucks this month for £5.  I collect points for using their search engine to browse the web!

Whatusersdo          £10.00

I do website testing at WhatUsersDo for £5 per test.  I think they're now closed to new applicants as my sign up link isn't working.  I've emailed them to find out but they've not replied yet.

Facebook Marketplace    £14.00

We had a bit of a shuffle around at home and got rid of the kids playroom.  It's now going to be storage for Ben's handmade furniture.  This meant we moved everything up to the kids bedrooms and had a sort out.

Here's what I sold on Facebook Marketplace in May:

  • £5.00     Disney Cars canvas
  • £7.00     Wooden play castle
  • £2.00     Kids book

Prolific Academic  £17.98

I complete lots of studies online to help academics with their research.  It's really interesting and the studies are so varied. Some only take one or two minutes.

User Testing           £22.96

I also do website testing with User Testing at $10 per test.  Find out more here: Make money online testing websites and apps with UserTesting

 

 

Profit Accumulator referrals    £66.27

This is from referring people to Profit Accumulator who I highly recommend for matched betting.  I used them for 26 months and made over £5600 in profit in my spare time.

It's great to know other people are signing up and making money too. 

They have a great referral scheme too, so if you love matched betting then you can make even more money by referring your friends and family.

Personal eBay        £73.95

There's some profit here, but fees and postage really eat into any eBay profits.  I much prefer selling on Facebook Marketplace in some ways, but eBay is still great for used clothing and I also sold an unwanted festival ticket which Facebook wouldn't allow me to list.

Here's what I sold in May on eBay:

  • £6.10     3x pairs Reuben's joggers            
  • £2.49     1x Victoria's skirt             
  • £2.49     boys top             
  • £3.94     womens playsuit                              
  • £6.30     men's hoody                      
  • £4.70     book                      
  • £3.94     dinosaur top                      
  • £40.00   festival ticket                     
  • £3.99     maxidress          

 

Awin affiliate marketing £150.00

Another payment from Awin - that's four months in a row, plus I have over £300 pending in my account too!  Awin is an affiliate marketing platform where online publishers/bloggers can have access to thousands of well-known brands affiliate programmes!

They also have a marketplace where you can list all your services such as blog posts, giveaways and social shares.  That's what this payment is actually from.  A company found me on the marketplace and paid me a special £150 comission to write a blog post all about them which I could even include my affiliate links in.

Another bonus is you can join their own affiliate programme and you'll get £30 per person you refer to Awin.

It costs £5 to join Awin, but you'll get that back in your first payment.  The payment threshold is only £20 and they pay this directly to your bank once you reach £20 and the comissions are approved by the brands.

Blog writing            £2,758.97

A great blogging month compared to the last couple of months.  It's really picked up in May, but I was also owed a lot of money from April so that really helped to bump this figure up.

Here's the breakdown of my blog income across my four blogs and their DA scores:

DA36 www.lyliarose.com £2,334.54
DA25 www.healthyvix.com £206.59
DA21 www.wood-create.com £161.68
DA19 www.travelvixta.com £56.16
