Making Internet Money: Fiverr vs. AdSense

By Chongchen Saelee

I use both AdSense and Fiverr to make chump change from the Internet. Making money on the Internet is hard work. You put in a lot of hours and get very little or nothing in return. But if you do it just right, some have made a living off the Internet. It took me at least 5 years to begin to generate some traffic and make those beans. And I’m grateful for all the Internet supporters.

But I want to point out why I like Fiverr better than AdSense. Granted, AdSense is good PASSIVE income. It’s not a lot, but it does it’s job. Fiverr, on the other hand, is almost real-time.

I like Fiverr because the client places and order, essentially pays upfront, and you deliver your product and you get paid. And then you transfer that to your PayPal account and then to your bank account. It doesn’t get any simpler.

The only problem with Fiverr is you need to have a steady stream of clients. Otherwise, it doesn’t generate enough income to make a living off it. YouTubers who make a living off it aren’t getting paid through AdSense (anymore, anyway). They get signed by a major sponsor and that’s how they get paid. It’s like endorsement deals and stuff.

On good days, you can make up to $50 a day on Fiverr. Can you believe that?

And not to go against Google AdSense policy, but I’m not using exact numbers anyway, the most I’ve made via AdSense through a combination of my website and YouTube is about $30 a year!!! That’s painful, right???

So it’s a balancing act. And I know I shouldn’t be complaining. Work is work. Income is income.

It’s all about compromise. You do what you love and hopefully people pay you for it and you can do that for a living.

Otherwise, you have to get the dreaded day job.

BTW, if you ever need any quick $5 drawings, you can contact me directly or place an order through Fiverr at my account there: http://www.fiverr.com/eastfist
