Organizing To Make More Money

United States
August 6, 2009 9:12pm CST
I have been reading several discussions about how people are working many different sites to make their money, I am now beginning to gather many sites and I was just wondering what everyone does to keep things organized so they don't forget to log in or so you know where you are with earnings from each site, I am thinking of possible starting a spread sheet to keep track of all my sites. With a different page for each site I am working. I am anxious to hear what you do to keep all your sites organized

I started a spreadsheet. It really does help keep track of them all.

TrvlArrngr I would love to know how you have your spreadsheet set up. What are some of the columns labeled as?

I use Earned, Future, Min Payout and diff needed for my headings I do not put the amount in the earned column until I reach the min payout. I keep a running tally on this column so I know about how much I am getting for the month and I update this spreadsheet many times during the day. It really helps me keep track of everything.

Wow thanks for sharing that. I finally have my spreadsheet set up. Added a couple of other columns. I added user Web Address, User Name & Password

Hey Jenny, I understand where your'e coming from. I tried many sites, but being an unorganized person got totally confused and gave up. A spreadsheet sounds ok, but I'm sure you'll probably get better advice from someone who is auccessful at making money. Good luck.

mipen2006. I really think organization is the key to making these sites work. If you take a little time to get organized it will help you work them quicker and more efficiently

I certainly understand what you're saying, but it's not easy teaching an old dog new tricks. Thanks for the advice, and I promis I will try.

For awhile I used spreadsheets to figure out my daily earnings as well as to remember to log in to the massive number of sites I started out with. I will tell you there is one big negative but also one big positive. The negative is the time. Writing down in a spreadsheet between each site makes it more time consuming. But I found it to be worth it considering that looking at the spreadsheet data can really show you which sites are actually worth sticking with and which aren't. Also it makes it easier to identify scam sites that offer way more money than can really be paid. After you figure out which sites you wanna stick with, I suggest getting away from the spreadsheets if you feel comfortable with your earnings so as you have more time for other sites. If you need some really good earning sites, check out and follow my blog located under my pic in my profile. Best of luck to you.

Thank you very much for all your pros and cons to the spreadsheet. I may one day move away from it but for right now it is very helpful for me. When I am working my sites I keep it open and as I finish at a site, i jot down how much I am now making for that site and then move on. My spreadsheet gives me information like the web address for the sites, user name & password, what the payout limit it is, the the amount I have earned so far, how much I still need for payout, my monthly and then yearly total. I have inserted formulas into the spread sheet so I don't have to do calculations each time it is automatically done for me. I also have a date column. I record the the date there was actually work to be done on the site. This helps to identify the scam sites, the ones who were just looking to capture my information so as to flood my inbox with junk

I don't actually. I just sort of remember to do them. Some months I am less interested in doing things then other months, so I only do a few sites. I usually stay logged in to sites, so they are all open in separate tabs whenever I am on the internet.

WOW if I kept all the tabs open of sites I was working I would have about 10 or more tabs. I am working on a spread sheet. I think for me this will be the best. I have decided to start thinking of this as a business even though I may at this time be earning a small amount. I think if I can get it organized and get it working for me instead of me working for the sites I will see more profits Right now I have about 5 sites that I should reach payout all at the same time resulting in about $90. I look for that to all be paid sometime in Sept

I made a free website and I put all my referral links on there. On my site I keep track of how much I've made, who had paid me, and what each site is for. It makes things really easy.

I don't know that I would like all my earnings out there on a website. But a website showing all my sites would be a good way. A good place to send people for referrals

That's a good idea. I don't have a spread sheet, but I do have a notebook where I track my online earnings and run a monthly total. I can then see which programs pay a bit more and try to concentrate on those. It does take time, but it's worth it so you can see where you should concentrate your efforts. Good luck!

This is my thought exactly I want some place where I can see at a glance where I am at for all the sites I am working. This way if I have a site that I am close to payout I might spend more time there then say one that I have only earned a few dollars and have a long way to go, even though the site is more fun than the other one

I participated in a lot of money making sites on the internet and sometimes I just forgets to log in and do what I need to do daily. Sometimes I am too engrossed into one site for the rest of the day and totally forgotten about the rest and that makes me lose an amount each day. Sometimes I think it is time consuming and not worth the money for everything done online and hence nowadays I only log on whenever I am free or bored with nothing to do.

I had similar experience like you did. This year i signed up a few websites and i was ambitious to make money online. Later i found some are not reliable, some websites would take ages for me to get payout. Some websites are not worthy to do. So I‘m less and less interested in these websites. at last i forgot them. I think i learnt from my lessons. Now i'm not trying to have many websites to make money. I just focus my time on a couple very reliable websites and guarantee i can get stable income from them. It's enough for me for now.

maybe make a list or something. use word pad and write it all down.. i think they have sites that will help you stay organized for things like this but i can't remember what its called... but i know what you mean. i used to have a lot more sites but it would get confusing now i don't have as many

I think that last statement is the key to why so many people don't succeed at making money online. It can get very confusing and for people who aren't organized, or aren't good at keeping track of things in their head it is hard to make any kind of head way working on line.

I have several sites that I joined in. What I do is that I have a notebook where I keep a list of the sites. I keep them in order ranking from the most important that I should do everyday. I make sure that the most time consuming site goes down to my list.

Sadly, I am not very skilled at organization although I try my best to improve on it. This might be a great idea to get me started so that I could also keep track of all my online earnings. Thanks for the tip!
