The Surprising Amount I Earned Online In 2015.

another great online earning year! i keep good records of all my online earnings and for 2015 i made a grand total of:


that's $1,278.27 a month

or $42.61 a day

to further break it down:

29% giftcards(usually walmart or amazon): 

granted, this is nothing compared to when i was working full time but it is great income for a homemaker! back then i was paying $460 PER WEEK for childcare, working many nights and weekends and nearly every holiday. also add in the cost of gas, work clothes and meals. now i am making decent money and am always home for my family (but admittedly on my laptop a lot!)

i also looked up my top 15 earners for last year. now keep in mind, i belong to over 100 sites, which includes Survey companies, research panels, mobile apps and online communities--some only earning me $20 over the course of a year and others earning nearly $1000. the higher paying focus groups and online communities came about through invites through my regular survey taking sites or filling out an endless amount of screeners. here are my top Survey Site Earners for the year:

1. inspired opinions $932  (numerous focus groups)

2. surveysavvy $699.40 (must install savvyconnect to make this a big earner!)

3. swagbucks $507 (didn't even start swagbucks until july) i also suggest reading my post: 
    how i earn $75 a month on swagbucks since swagbucks can be very overwhelming!

4. perk $500 (also did not start perking until july)

5. globaltestmarket $465 (scored a few nice product tests that paid well)

6. springboard america $440 (invited to some nice studies)

7. mindswarms $425 (must be comfortable doing videos!)

8. resolution research panel $350 (lots of invokes and product tests)

9. parentspeak $232 (invited to a few projects)

10. ebates $211.14 (not really a survey site but free $ when you shop online)

11. test america $195 (survey station in local malls)

12. i-poll $173.50 (a lot of this is from their mobile app)

13. product report card $170.30 (one very high paying product test helped)

14. my soapbox $169 (scored a focus group)

15. pinecone $126 (every survey pays a flat $3)

15. TIE mintvine $126 (some invokes)

best of luck in 2016 to all my fellow online earners!

keep in mind even when totaling up my top 15 sites--it is only about 1/3 of my total earnings so focus group sites, online communities and small survey Site Earners (earning me less than $120 a yr/ or under $10 a month) also really add up since it amounts to nearly 2/3's of my income.

more fun facts:
my top 2 months were: November and December
my slowest 2 months were: March and April

this may be deceiving though since i record my earnings when i GET PAID rather than when i actually took the study or focus group. as far as survey sites though, i usually cash out when i hit the minimum threshold.

i also want to add that this does not include the countless test products i got to keep--i am not allowed to say brand names but i will say this year alone i received a juicer, vacuum, faucet, beer maker, comforter set, and too many beauty, personal care, cleaning, pet supply and food products to even count. i am sure the value of these items totals up several thousand dollars and many of the items i would be at the store buying anyway.

and that is my year in review! hope everyone out there also had a good year and here's to making even more in 2016!
