    How do YOU make money? You could be featured!

    Hello everyone.

    I'm interested in learning how you make money online.
    What have you done? What seems to work?

    I will be picking someone (possibly more than one person if the interest is here) to interview and feature on my blog. The interview will be brief - nothing intense, and it will get a general run-down of what you do to produce an online income, as well as your thoughts, feelings, motivation & drive... things like that. As a bonus for you, you'll get some exposure in the article for your site(s).

    I'm doing this to learn some information about how people make money online, to get a neat interview or two for my blog, and to help out the community by giving a lucky person some great exposure.

    Just post here with what you do to make money online!

    Wow.. don't everyone answer at once!
    Well.. First i made a good sum from Adsense Firefox referrals.. so much that Google posted about it here: Adsense Success Stories
    Then, I wrote an ebook that sold around 1,000 copies @ $10/each (but, it's free now, HERE)
    Then, I generated around $80k or so (kinda lost count) from Premium Membership sales..

    all in all, i've generated around $300k since I started in 2006..

    What's worked for me has been writing things that help people and monetizing those pages with PPC ads.

    I've tried a lot of other things, but nothing else has worked nearly as well as that.

    I do some weird things.

    I started selling services back in '07 - not so big.

    in late '08 got my big break and my small organization transformed into a 40 man organization.

    The organization makes a steady income from the services business, and we're concurrently building properties monetized by adsense and other affiliate programs.

    Me and Will are now collaborating and focusing on building an ad-network so that we can make more money from our properties / traffic and also help other people make more money, since we believe adsense is just a dribble.

    I develop web applications and then sell them. A few you may have heard of...

    • aimchecker.com
    • aimstatus.com
    • prupdates.com
    • rubikvids.com
    • suexchange.com
    • twtad.com (now revtwt.com)

    That's how I primarily have made money in the past. I have also done my own affiliate marketing and worked as an affiliate manager. Pretty much you name it and I've tried it (besides eBooks)

    My interview seems rather paltry compared to the work that these guys have done and the money that some of these guys have made. Oh well, all in a days work for Razorloq! Thanks again for interviewing me. The questions that you gave were extremely constructive and beneficial for anyone that decides to read the interview (I think).

    What worked best for me was to build a viral income stream based on providing free website vistor tracking which gave my site a ton of authority via all the inbound links and then I added a simple IP address tracing tool to the site to rank #1 for this. Then I monetized the site with Ads. Years later, this site has been pushed down the rankings but still generates monthly 3 digit income for no extra work.
