If you are someone who uses facebook, myspace, or some other social network to communicate with friends you might be interested in earning money while doing so. There are websites on the internet where you can get paid to chat with friends plus a lot of other things you already do. There are several different ways to earn money with websites like this.
You Make Money When You
- Sending Messages To Your Friends
- Uploading Pictures To Your Profile
- Viewing Other People's Pictures
- Referring Your Friends
Sending messages to your friends is a great way to build income on these types of websites. You get paid when you write on other peoples wall, send private messages, leave comments, and basically any other type of communication. By communicating on their website you are driving their ad revenue up. This is the primary income stream for websites like this because they sell a lot of private advertisements.
While you can get paid to chat you can make money by uploading photos on your profile and viewing other people's pictures. This is one of the easiest ways because you can look at a lot of pictures in a short amount of time. Plus you could never send as many messages as view photographs. A page view from one of them is the same as any other type of page view in the ad revenue it generates.
The real money in this is in referring your friends to sign up for account on the website. They have great affiliate programs that allow members to make decent cash when they refer people. Yuwie, which is the largest company in this field, has one the goes ten levels deep. It is rare to find one that is deeper than two. With time you could turn this into a large income stream just for putting a banner on your myspace profile with a link to Yuwie.
Another good site where you can get paid for similar things is Gather. They have a community like atmosphere where you basically make money for every activity that you do. Stuff like submitting articles, videos, watching movies, commenting, and many other things. The only downfall to this website is that you get paid in points instead of dollars. This is always a negative due to the fact that points generally always pay less than cash.
One thing to avoid when doing this is to get caught spamming. Do not post your referral link everywhere on the internet. Only place it in things like articles, pages within your own website if your are a webmaster, and your forum signature. If you try to post your links on other people's walls, comments, and in the forums you will get banned for being a spammer. Other than that you build a big income online while you chat with your friends.
