I just ran the totals for passive income for December and I found out that it was the 3rd most “profitable” month of 2008. The other two were October and June.
Monthly Passive (alternative, online & dividend) Income was $3,276.07.
The total online income was $2385.20 which broke the previous record by ~$130.
Here’s the breakdown of the $3,276.07:
- Ebay Publisher Network: $922.6
- Linkworth: $471.61
- TLA: $322.93
- Adsense: $128.81
- Kontera: $26.34
- Direct Ads: $220
- RevResponse: $10.63
- Amazon: $17.38
- Other/Affiliate: $309.24
Dividend/Alternate Income: $890.87
- ING Savings Account: $102.77
- Direct Oil Drilling Investment: $329
- Other Dividends: $458.86 (net of foreign tax deducted at source)
The largest segment was the income from Ebay which was over $900, probably due to Christmas. Over the course of 2008, I made a total of $3332.55 from the Ebay sites. Adding a storefront on this site has helped boost this income. The store targets people who want to buy online businesses, cheap real estate and timeshares, gold coins and other income producing ventures.
In another post, I’ll list the total income for 2008 and a break-down by category.
