 Earnings on FanBox Explained

 

One of the most common questions our Success Coaches get asked, is to help members (clients) understand their income here. So here is my overview, which should give you a clearer understanding.


Earnings on FanBox Explained

A typical question may be like this -

 

"How can I understand my 'earnings' on FanBox - are they like a salary?"  The following is intended to cover that fully - but if you have further questions, please ask your SC or leave me a query in the comments section below.

 

Answer:- 

 

"I will happily clarify that for you - may I start by ensuring you are clear on the basic differences between employment and using a web site to generate some income.  This will take a few minutes to read, but should ensure you have a solid understanding of the various potential incomes you can earn here, their costs and their various short and longer term benefits.

 

We should not view the earnings here as 'salary' as that is correctly used only when people are employed to undertake a job, though used carefully this site can certainly give you a great extra source of income.

 

Here on FanBox we are all trying to earn a little extra income by blogging, uploading our original photos, sharing video links from You Tube &  Vimeo, trading in our market place and investing - we are in effect all making our own small business.

Blogs are the easiest to understand in some ways, as there is no cost to write and publish a blog, but there can be costs to promote it with ads - even though we make a small margin of profit on ads.  What we earn from blogging is pure profit, so even $6.00 would be actual profit to keep.

Uploading your own original photos is now another way to earn. You can upload from your computer or send pictures to your fanbox account from an App on your iPhone or froman Android smartphone.  As there are no costs associated with uploading photos, simply adding them will generate earnings based upon the number of views they get from other members.

 

Click on 'Add Photos/Video' text and the options box opens - select upload photos.

 The window below opens

Follow the on screen instructions and add photos that you select to the list , then click on upload.

 

Soon you will have a photo album window open and can add the name for the album, the location if you wish to add it and a description.  Save those and the album will then display all the photos you added.  

Your profile page will also show a summary of the pictures you added and members who are your fans and friends can see that too.

ADDING VIDEO LINKS

The most recent addition to earning options has been the faciity to add videos on your profile page - you will not earn if you post to other people's walls.  When someone clicks on those they earn for you!  Source videos can be from You Tube and from Vimeo - you simply add the URL for the video and the details show as below:-

Click on Add a Video to open this window and paste in the URL from Vimeo or from You Tube. Click on Post to confirm your choice.

When someone clicks to play the video, the window enlarges as below.Earnings on FanBox Explained

That's all that you need to do - when a member clicks on the play button you start to earn, even if they don't watch it to the end...

If we use the trading facilities, we usually have costs - the wholesale price of goods, or the cost to make them, etc, - and the cost of ads again.   In that instance, it is hard to say what the profit is going to be, but if we sell an item for $16 and it cost us $10, then while we earn $16.00 from the sale, the gross profit is $6.00, and if the ad cost $2 for example, the net profit would be $4.00.

Very useful tips and explanation to boost earnings. thanks

well, trying to earn at FanBox is quite disappointing since those who don't do anything earn much anyway. I cant believe they earn as much 1,000 dollars for 2 months, or 250 dollars a week for doing nothing. May 'justice' be served. they are the REAL winners here.

Ren, if you stop and read carefully, you will discover the investment earnings are not the same as profits - don't get the two mixed-up. If someone earns $216 from investing $200 - that is of course shown as the $216, because that is how investments are shown. Even so they only have $16 more than before...

Ren, the catch is most of the members use IPL credit for boosting and ads making, now the problem is to understand the profit earned, I use $10 for a boosting porfolio, fanbox took $5 for investment, next day fanbox send me back $5.5 that means I invested $5 and fanbox sent me my invested amount with the profit, $5.5 -$5 = 0.5
I earned a total profit of 0.5 on $5 invested, therefore fanbox always shows full return amount not just profits.
Blogs are the only option to earn net $$

Thanks Dave,how do I do that? I am really interested.

Oh just ask when you need to know anything - you can do that on your own news feed (the box for text on your Home page) - anyone linked to you as a friend or fan will have the opportunity to see that, plus visitors. Or ask your your Success Coach - what they don't know they will find out for you - it is a fundamental right here for everyone to have the help of their SC, plus of course the resources in the Learning Centre. :)

Hi , D. Poet R,

You have explained the most confusing part of IPL for new users. That too with easy to understand examples. Yes it is the Profit and Net profit is the real earning not all that what they look in their earning statements. The link of the post should be saved and can be included in welcome letters that we receive from our coach very first. Thank you.

My thanks for your comments Arun - as coaches we are faced with questions on these matters so often, it is good to have an illustrated post to refer clients to and avoid having to write long replies too frequently. I hope it is proving useful to many members, both new and 'old' - things change (often unnoticed) whenever new features are added, so it is easy for us to forget some of our members will need updating on relatively basic matters. Best wishes, Dave.
