Get Paid to Read Emails #2

Comments Off on Get Paid to Read Emails #2

In my last post I discussed Hits4Pay. Basically, the biggest incentive is that they give you a $10 sign up bonus, but the catch is that you do not receive this $10 before you accumulate $15 more. To accumulate $15, you need to wait for Hits4Pay to send you the advertisement emails. Each email has 1 link, and you only get emails once or twice a week. It takes 10 to 20 seconds to click on a link. Since for every link you click on you get $0.02, you are going to need a few months or years to accumulate $15. Does it mean that you cannot earn money with Hits4Pay? You can, but only as a person who refers many other users. However, they are probably not going to get paid, so it really looks like a pyramid scheme where only those who refer a lot of other users earn money.
Since it seems like it is a pyramid scheme, I am not going to encourage you to join it, but I know that there are people who got paid, especially those who had referrals. On the bright side, reading those emails does not take a lot of time, so if you are interested, you can sign up by visiting their webpage.

Get Paid to Read Emails #1

The idea behind Hits4Pay is to get paid for reading commercial emails. Earnings are as follows:

-You will receive a $10 Signup Bonus.
-You will earn $0.02 For Each ad.
-You will earn $0.01 from your first level members reading ads.
-You will earn $0.01 from your second level members reading ads.

The emails are customized to your preferences. You can get your payment by check once you reach $15.00. This company has a reputation of generally being honest, but the downside is that they do not pay that much. A good way of increasing your income is to have referrals.
However, I have to warn you that if you plan on using Hits4Pay, you should keep in mind that they decide how many emails they will send you. Before they pay you, you have to earn $15 by reading emails, which means that it might take some time to accumulate $15. If you manage to accumulate $15, as a bonus they are throwing in another $10, but only the first time they pay you. The problem is that they have the right to completely stop sending you emails once you begin approaching the payout.

Over Two Months of Blogging

Comments Off on Over Two Months of Blogging

It seems that I started my blog just yesterday. It is incredible how fast the time flows. Anyway, this blog is now over 2 months old, and I don’t have any plans to stop blogging in the future. I checked how many posts I wrote so far, and it seems that on average I am posting around 2 blog entries per week. When it comes to the topics I wrote about, there are more and more things I want to discuss. It is quite a challenge to monitor all interesting news and information. So far I did not receive any negative feedback about my blog, but received some positive ones which are quite encouraging.
When it comes to traffic and readers, I believe this blog is getting more popular, which is always a good thing. I also submitted this website to some directories, and joined different sites to promote my blog. Recently, I am more involved in reading and commenting on different blogs and forums with similar topics.
In the upcoming months, I will stay focused on increasing the quality of my posts, providing useful information, and further increasing the incoming traffic and amount of readers. If you have any advice how I could improve the overall quality of my blog, please free to share your opinion! I am always interested in hearing from my visitors.

The Purpose of Online Games

Comments Off on The Purpose of Online Games

Second Life developed by Linden Lab is another online computer game which gives an opportunity to earn real money. Actually, it is a whole virtual world, where players who are called residents, can explore, meet other residents, socialize, participate in individual and group activities. They can also create and trade items, virtual property and services with each other. One of the distinguishing characteristics of Second Life is that the players, not Linden Lab, create most of the content of the world. There is a 3D modeling tool in Second Life that allows any resident with the right skills to build virtual buildings, landscape, vehicles, furniture, and machines to use, trade, or sell. This is a primary source of activity in the economy. It is not an action or role-playing game – there are no levels, no clear winners or losers. This game has a lot of features, like transportation via vehicles, such as go-karts or even helicopters, submarines and hot-air balloons.

Entertainment Sold Everywhere

Comments Off on Entertainment Sold Everywhere

It seems that these days entertainment is being sold everywhere. For example, last year HBO announced that it will be selling shows on Apple’s iTunes, and that the price is estimated to be at $1.99 per episode for most shows. Having said that, some shows are expected to cost more than $2 and this includes some new releases. This means a change in the overall strategy of Apple, as until now they insisted on selling shows at the same price, for the sake of simplicity for consumers. In my opinion it is a good decision, as I see no problem for consumers to spot the differences in prices, and this will make some older shows cheaper as well.
