• IM Report Card

    After the horrible experience I've had with Ciao, joining paid to review sites have become the least of my priorities. But there certainly are websites that really delivers. Am I sounding like an ad? Surely not, it's no advertisement post that I'm making but just a simple assessment of my recent participation with IM Report Card. I have been very pleased with how the system works. The very sign up process where you have to write something about yourself and about your experience with internet marketing is a first off the bucket.

    The comment rating system, the comment bonus, and the website grading is way better than its predecessors. And not to mention, the pay is also good, considering the fact that many paid to websites are crying out recession. I haven't reached the minimum payout yet, which is 2000 credits that can be encashed to $20 via Paypal. But I'm nearing that mark at 1798.

    See for yourself.... Join here: IM Report Card

  • Microworkers Sometimes the little things that needs to be done are just so time consuming that it ends up totally undone. I'm sure you have those times when you planned to advertise your blog in some social networking site, want to comment on another blog, or write another article for posting. Unfortunately, there are only 24 hours for us and there are other things that occupies those 24 hours. I know outsourcing those task is a very easy resolution. That is, if you are willing to pay the extra. Well, if you do, i guess you would be interested with this.

    I just found about Microworkers. A site that specifically solves those "micro" things that needs to be done for a very reasonable price. It's actually a community where people look for "micro jobs" or post tasks for the members to accomplish. And here's specifically what you get if you join:

  • The Demise of EziHippo? When Ezihippo first appeared on the radar of online opportunities, I was one of the first to jump into the bandwagon. I like being a part of a pioneer group because in most cases and experience wise, the earlier you join, the sooner you harvest your earnings, the smaller you invest and the quicker you leave the better your chance of escaping the fangs of scam. Although it is not always the same as what has been proven by many programs like Neobux and MyLot which still continue to pay its members, some have not had the same sturdy preparation once the global financial crisis hit the shores of the web. And I'm actually starting to believe that EziHippo is one of those programs swept by the meltdown.

    For many weeks, if not months, i've been trying to log on to my account and see my progress, but it has been a frustrating attempt each time. I've read a few blog entries in MyPage5 as well MyLot and it seems that my suspicion is shared by many members of the EziHippo community. It's really saddening if this is true, because eziHippo has a very good potential of making it big. It has very innovative ideas that can match what Facebook and other social networking sites has to offer.

    I just hope that this one is just another product of trolls but it's a little doubtful to think that way either. Anyway, whatever it may be in the end, I enjoyed being a part of the eziHippo community, and i'll be looking forward to some resurrection, I'm just hoping that it won't be until the next 2000 years.

  • Monetizing Your Files

    For the past 8 months that I have been finding my way around the internet, I have collected quite a few ebooks, documents and learning materials that's been cluttering my hard drive. And I guess, quite a few have banged my recycle bin from time to time. I thought they are good for nothing after you have read them and applied them in your blogs. But I'm having some resentment for doing that when I came across hotfile.

    Hotfile is one of those file hosting sites where you can store your documents instead of just keeping it on your memory stick or hard drive. It offers portability since you can access it to any computer that has internet connection. But unlike the typical hosting sites, Hotfile pays you for the files you store in their servers if someone downloads it. Check further for the FAQ's:

  • MyLot Rumours
    After some rumor mongers caused a little panic and dismay to some of the members of MyLot regarding payment delays, the issue that was started by some troll is now put to rest. As soon as I checked on my Outlook when I arrived from work, $22 have been credited to my Paypal account which sums up my June earning in the community.

    And of course, lessons were learned from that short grip of the troll that brought doubts and anger to MyLot. Again and again, patience is a virtue. Although I have noticed that MyLot pays in advance at times, the official statement in the TOS indicates that payments will be made on or before the 15th. And with that, MyLot still lives to its standard of paying on time.

    Second thing, don't easily believe people who just started out and acting like he's been there for a long time already. These kinds of people are just looking for some attention which they may have been yearning for. There were actually members who've been there for years and they never budged nor raised an eyebrow. It's better to listen to these people who have known that MyLot have always paid its obligations to its members.

    Third, it's not official until it's the person or the party involved is the one who gives out the statement. All those "I heard, they said, I thought" statements are but signs of immaturity and gossiping spirit. So wherever you may be, whether it's an online or off line gig you are working on and waiting for payment, the final say that you should believe is the statement of the person or party involved.

    Happy Mylotting everyone.

  • Money Thru Blogs ... For the past months, my posts have always been about PTC's, PTP's, and all the range of PT's I can find. But of course, dollars don't just come from those streams. And I guess you can all agree with me, blogging is one of the most popular money making stream in the internet today.
    (And I guess that is what I'm doing right now.)

    I don't really consider myself as an adept blogger or problogger, that is such a shame for me to claim. I may be in that phase where I am learning the tricks of the trade, but I'm still way beyond the real caliber of a certified blogger. I am a novice but I'm learning and gleaning from every blog hop that I make.

    I bet you've heard of John Chow, Steve Pavlina, and (the latest one that I'm following) David Risley, and yes you are correct, these people are pro-bloggers. And not just that, these people are blogging and earning six figures or probably even more. They found a place in the blogosphere where you can say that they have become the stars and suns in the blogging community. So what's my point? Shall we all then be a blogger and be John Chow's and Steve Pavlinas, or David Risleys? Not really.

    In essence that may be a possibility that we can all set up our own blogs. But as what Steve Pavlina mentio
    ned in his post "How to Make Money From Your Blog" "...99% of people who try to generate serious income from their blogs will fail" So what's the catch?

    As I have repeatedly mentioned in my posts,
    patience is one crucial factor in determining if a person is fit for a blogging career. The sad part is, most of us are impatient and driven by things that are instant. You can create an instant blog thru but earning from that blog is another story. We want instant coffee, we adore fast-foods, we want quick breaks but blogging won't cater to that kind of preference.

    In contrast, blogging is something like a seed being thrown to the ground by a farmer, watered, and nurtured. And after months, eventually gives the sower some fruits to harvest.
    If you have not noticed, I intentionally phrased it as "eventually gives the sower some fruits to harvest." I did not say that the farmer will reap a whole bunch because in real life that doesn't always happen. You may at times reap a few. But the good thing is, you will always have something if you sow, no matter how small that may be.

    It's not rocket science. But it is the simple, universal law of sowing and reaping that is applicable even to blogs. Because every blogger has their own style, has their own capabilities and ways to accomplish things and it surely will give different results as well. This is where you can tell the wise from the fool, the smart from the challenged, the problogger or the novice.

    For now, I guess it will be a good start if we look at these successful people and mirror ourselves on what they have achieved. I don't think that in this age of technology and open field of knowledge they can hide the secrets to what put them in their place. I don't know how you plan to start and make blogging as a serious career but for me, I'll be burning my brows over David Risley's "Six Figure Blogger Blueprint". And maybe, in a few years time you will read an e-book of my success story.
