I was looking at my August earnings and realized that without my stocking stuffers, I would have to work a little harder to reach my financial goals. My first long term goal is to earn $166.66 per day (that’s $5,000 in monthly residual income). Every goal in between is a mini-goal.
So far I’m a little less than 1/3 of the way to my goal. In my attempt to get to $166.66 per day, I’ve found that my stocking stuffers are helpful.
What are Financial Stocking Stuffers?
Financial stocking stuffers are not the meat and potatoes of my online earnings, but an accumulation of mini-gifts. These mini gifts are free and require absolutely no work after the initial sign up and code implementation.
My August earnings from my stocking stuffers are as follows:
|Kontera||$.89 (I used to earn more with them, but I found Infolinks to be more lucrative. My Kontera earnings now come from my hubs on HubPages)|
|Bukisa||$6.08 – Hold on a minute, Bukisa is a residual writing site, why is it a stocking stuffer? Well, I realized early on that putting much effort into Bukisa isn’t worth it, so it’s been relegated to stocking stuffer status. I don’t add any articles nor do I market them. They just sit there earning a few pennies a day.|
My stocking stuffers earned a total of $178.67 last month. Not bad for a slow summer month’s income. The earnings fluctuate depending on the amount of traffic, but they never earn less than $100 a month. I look at it as free money, just enough to add $5 or $6 a day to my daily earnings goal.
Set up a Blog or Web Site
Anyone who has read more than one post on this blog knows that I’m a fan of residual income. I’m also a big fan of having my own website/blogs. I don’t expect my blogs to compete with the big sites like Suite, eHow and the like. I use them to experiment, learn and earn a few dollars.
So, if you don’t have your own blog, seriously consider creating one. If you already have one, why not look into adding a few stocking stuffers. It’s free, easy and adds to the financial bottom line.
