Continued…Part Two

21) Earn with Gather.com

Gather is a paid social networking site that pays you money to remain active on the social site. Its similar to Facebook; the only difference being that Gather pays you for being active and Facebook does not. You can earn on Gather by doing the following:

    Ways to Make Money Online in 2012

  • Posting videos
  • Posting pictures
  • Updating status
  • Using their apps
  • Playing games and others

Whatever points you accumulate through these tasks can be redeemed in the form of cash and/or Amazon vouchers and other gift cards.

I think this is a very new and novel way of earning cash through social media. In fact, if you are good in reviewing, you can review products or services you have used on Gather and get paid for the same.

Again, I would say, this kind of earning source will not tide you over every month but it can surely pay your little menacing bills, cover gift costs, buy something extra for yourself and so on.

22) Earn Money with She Told Me

While researching for this list, I came across She Told Me. Apparently, it is the biggest AdSense sharing revenue network these days.

In this, you get to write your own chosen articles and get paid. I don’t know whether they pay upfront for the articles but they surely pay for the AdSense revenues.

Here the AdSense is divided into 3 blocks – one block is for the writer (yours), the second block is for She Told Me and the third block is for the referrer (if any) who recommended the website.

The best thing – if you already have a Chitika advertisement account, you can insert your own Chitika ads and earn 100% revenue from them.

Signing up is free.

23) Earn Money with Hits4Pay.com

Hits4Pay is one of the oldest sponsored email reading networks online since 1998. Here you get a signing bonus of $5 and they pay you 2 cents for every email you read. Sometimes the emails pay you 5 cents but those are rare.

If you refer people and they sign up, you get 2 cents for every email read by the referral.

The payout is $25, credited to your account through PayPal.

24) Earn Money with Xomba.com

Like She Told Me, Xomba is another AdSense revenue sharing portal where you write content for Xomba and enter into a 60-40 partnership ratio. Xomba gives you 60% of the advertisement revenue.

Obviously, the content has to be highly search engine optimized to get any kind of revenue. There is an extensive list of topics for you to choose. You can write on anything as long as it is relevant and you should have an AdSense account.

Signing up is free.

25) Earn Money with Commission Junction

Like ClickBank, Commission Junction (CJ) is another highly popular and credible network for affiliate earnings. There is a huge repository of digital products like web hosting services, domains, software, eBooks and others.

The commission percentage is between 2% and 70%. Like with any other affiliate network, all you have to do is:

  • Create an account

  • Spread the word around with relevant affiliate links

…and earn affiliate commission. Commission is paid out for every valid sale. The minimum payout if 100 USD and the common mode of payment is PayPal.

26) Earn Money with Sponsored Tweets

Supposedly the most trusted way to earn money online through Twitter advertising, Sponsored Tweets pays you for posting paid tweets on your Twitter account. It is not an issue if you use multiple Twitter accounts for tweeting.

There are two options – Pay Per Click and Pay Per Tweet – the Pay Per Click can offer about $5 per click and the Pay Per Tweet can sometimes offer $150 per tweet. Of course, the amount per click or per tweet depends on what you are tweeting about.

50 USD is the minimum payout and you’ll need a PayPal account for receiving the money.

Signing up is free.

27) Earn Money with Text Link Ads (TLA)

Text Link Ads (TLA) is yet another advertising network where the advertisers pay for displaying texts and hyperlinks to the publisher. (the blogger) I would suggest that you sign up for TLA only if you have PR 1+. PR 0 blogs rarely get an opportunity to display ads.

The advertisers place their ads for a fixed period of time. The price of the text links are to be set by the publisher. (you) Be careful while setting this price because you get only 50% of the amount because the remaining goes to TLA as their earning. Therefore, it is a 50%-50% revenue account.

You are either paid through PayPal or TLA vouchers and the minimum amount you should have for payment is $25 for those who want to be paid through prepaid Master Card or through global checks.

28) Earn Money with Sponsored Reviews

If you are interesting in reviewing products and services on your blog but you are having a hard time finding paid review sponsors, Sponsored Reviews is one of the best marketplaces to try.

Here you register the membership account, link your blog, set the price and start bidding on paid sponsors.

Please note that you will receive only 50% of the amount you set for reviews as the other 50% is taken by Sponsored Reviews. Moreover, the chances of your blog getting good offers depends on its PR and the number of daily page views and unique visitors. The maximum you can get is $500 per review.

Payments are credited every 2 weeks into PayPal and there is no minimum payout criteria.

29) Earn Money with Fiverr.com

Fiverr is one of its kind initiator of the mini-marketplace concept where you can sell anything for a fiver. ($5) The Fiverr company deducts $1 from each seller so you basically get $4 per sale.

What can you sell? Your answer is – anything under the sun. For instance, you can find writing services, voiceover services, tattoo designing, web designing, poetry writing, sand writing…and hundreds of others.

When I visited the site a few days back, one gig caught my eye – there was this gig wherein the girl would write your name or the ad (am not sure!) on her lips, take a picture and send it to the buyer. Very weird! But she is the top-rated seller there. So as I said, you can sell just about anything 🙂

30) Earn Money with eHow

A few months back, eHow partnered with Demand Studios to build a network of quality writers. eHow is famous for its “how-to” articles that gives you step-by-step solutions or tutorials.

You can try to become an eHow writer. Your earning is generated through the number of page views the content receives every month.

Last I checked, Demand Studios were taking writers only from the US and Canada so unless you are in these countries, it is impossible to become an eHow writer.

Nevertheless, the earning potential is wide and you are paid through PayPal.

Earning Money from Review Me

Usually, many of the larger companies have their products and/or services judged by other web sites or blogs thus gaining from not just the traffic, the viral nature of reviews, but also valuable feedback from those sites while new market players find it difficult to advertise about their products, given the amount of money that they may have to spend in doing so.

Earning Money from Review MeReview me is a site that has writers employed to review products of the companies that are registered with them. That goes a long way in sending traffic to their clients’ websites. They also claim viral buzz and invaluable feedback that their client stands in good account.

There are two factors that make ReviewMe.com a popular mode of earning for writers and a method to gain better exposure.

Review Me The Advertiser Friendly Solutions

Smaller companies find it time consuming and expensive to create, prototype and bring their products in the market which can result in bringing sales to their websites and company.

Review Me enables gauging of product demand and feedback right at the stage where prototyping is done. This helps in creating an environment where creating and testing ideas is done at a faster pace.

It is a known fact that most of the people generally ignore advertisements placed on websites or the ones that are inserted as pop-ups are quickly clicked ‘close’ so that they can skip to the main show, which is the site that they want to visit.

Review Me reviews are able to override this problem since they do not look like normal ads that are seen all over the web. Publishers can get more mileage out of their reviews and thus also stand to have a better eyeball view ratio. This delivers more attention ratio than the conventional advertisements.

When products and services have greater value, there is a tendency of the advertisement getting generic and therefore boring, which ultimately could lead to a totally ignored advert and ultimately resulting in just expenditure for no logical end.

Reviewers from Review Me can help companies overcome that hurdle since they review sites that they like and which will certainly be of interest to the reviewers themselves.

This way of functioning guarantees a foolproof way of getting more for every ounce of effort that has gone into creating the website and putting it together.

The problem of trying to connect with bloggers so that they visit your site and getting a review from them can be a daunting task because of the sheer volume of emails or posts that should be generated.

Also, it is a time consuming effort with little result. The bloggers themselves could be offended if they take this kind of ‘reminder emails’ to be some sort of spamming activity.

When the authors at ReviewMe choose to review your site, they could be more inclined to review your site more meaningfully and with more insight which gives more value for money feedback to the site owners.

This also translates into less work and working smart since you do not have to go after hundreds of bloggers to get eyeball connections for your website.

Advertisers are empowered with an ability to manage the filtering levels that they have on the targeted campaigns. This feature of a filter campaign has been inbuilt into a number of options, such as pre-deciding a minimum page rank and Review Me rating, as also excluding domain names. This solution helps to increase individualized control of targeted campaigns for advertisers.

Customers can login and change their preferences if and when they feel that they could get better results by changing some or all of the preferences that have been set previously.

ReviewMe.com aims to be totally ethical in its modus of business operations. Therefore, they guarantee a refund of the unused funds equivalent or proportionate to the amount of review that was not utilized.

Another important facet of the ethics driven business practices of Review Me is that the advertiser is not allowed to write more than one review for the same campaign.

Also, they do not have a rule of thumb of advertisers having a positive review each and every time a review is done on their site. It is this feature that encourages websites to receive feedback on a product or service cheaply and with no loss of time.

Pricing: The reviews of the blog marketplace are priced as a fee that is charged one time per review from each of the individual blogs. Pricing is reached upon by studying the reach of the blog that has to be reviewed. The better the reach, the higher is the blog’s price. Reviews are charged a one time fee per review.

When advertisers plan on ordering a campaign, they can choose the campaign to be either recurring or non-recurring. In addition, they can also choose how many reviews will be posted within the campaign. And they have the flexibility to predetermine the length of the period that the campaign could run.

Thus, it can be rightly concluded that an advertiser, whether a big corporation or a small one branch operation, can easily profit from the unique advantages that Review Me can offer to the advertisers.
