An In-fusion of cash!!!

It has been quite a while since I added new material to the blog.  This is primarily because the primary web pages already contain the bulk of the necessary detail and information for Get Paid! visitors to… well… Get Paid!

I may not return to any regularity in updating the blog portion of Get Paid!, but I will make an effort to showcase at least one app or site more often in the future.  Today I am going to turn to what has become my best and most profitable site over the past 12 months.

I’ve never claimed to be an expert on making money.  I use my fair share of sites and apps, but I am always learning and always keeping my eyes open for new opportunities. In July of 2015, I found Fusion Cash.  This is a web site which had been around for years, but I had only come across it on occasion and mistakenly believed it to be one of the scam or pie in the sky sites offering false promises.  Maybe I had seen it before and just never looked into it since there are so many bogus sites out there.  But when I saw a splash page offering a link to Fusion Cash on one out of the tens of thousands of PTC ads I clicked last year, I stopped and took notice.  It was being offered by the same person who referred me to Clixsense five years ago.  I didn’t know anything about him at that time, but I’ve since learned what an honest and highly respected member of the online earning community he was.  So when I saw his photo attached to the Fusion Cash link, that, more than anything else, jumped out at me!

Free Money from FusionCash!Free Money at FusionCash!

So I decided to take a closer look.  Boy do I wish I had done so five years before! The amount of money I could have made from this site over five years time is fantastic! I’m not talking about fantastic in terms of the inflated (and false) sales pitches you regularly see in excess of $10,000 a month. But fantastic relative to the legitimate sites out there. See the banner ad below for an approximate update of what I have made with Fusion Cash.  This banner periodically updates itself, so it will remain accurate and ongoing well beyond the date of this blog post.

Free Money at FusionCash!

Simply stated, Fusion Cash is an online community (and I use that term purposefully) with multiple income incentives.  It is VERY trustworthy and has a proven track record for regular payments to its users.

Like many other players in this area, in order to make Fusion Cash work for you, you must return daily and perform a minimum of actions — it will quite literally take all of ten minutes or less to do the bare minimum, but you can spend several hours on site if you like and reap even larger rewards.

A few areas of caution regarding Fusion Cash that you must know up front:

  • You MUST reach a minimum of $25 to cash out and you MUST cash out your account at least once every 180 days as any earnings in your bank older than 180 days (roughly six months) are forfeited.  DO NOT let that deter you!!! If you make the minimum daily effort, you will earn 22 cents a day ($6.60 a month), allowing you to cash out in 3½ months.  But you CAN EARN so much more than 22 cents a day if you spend just a tiny bit of effort on the site!
  • You CANNOT ACCESS Fusion Cash from a wireless network where another user connects to Fusion Cash.  This means no logging in to Fusion Cash from a public WiFi spot, or from the library, or from a friend or relative’s house (because you’ll want to get all of your friends and extended family to sign up using your referral code!) This is one of their fraud prevention measures to avoid people setting up fake referral or multiple accounts. It may seem like an unfair way to combat fraud (they will suspend your account it you violate this policy), but this is their rule plainly stated in the terms of use, so you have to follow it!  As long as you know this up front and observe this rule, you are golden!
  • Fusion Cash is only available to users from Canada and the United States. I know that the Internet exists beyond those two nations, but Fusion Cash does not.

Although it was a yellow flag for me, I looked beyond the 180 day expiration of non-cashed-out earnings and began using Fusion Cash in July of 2015.  As of the date of this blog post I have personally earned enough to cash out EVERY SINGLE MONTH (you can only cash out once a month) since July 2015.  Other than one cash out of $26.31, I have not had any month with less than $30.00 cashed out and in my first year of use I had five cash outs of more than $50.00!  So with just a little bit of effort, you should easily be able to cash out at least every other month.

I commented above that Fusion Cash is a community and here is what I mean by that: Fusion Cash has a very active forum/message board full of useful, interesting, and vibrant discussion. There are various general categories each with hundreds of posts.  Those general categories include a board to discuss Fusion Cash and its content; a board to ask support questions; a board to discuss payments received from Fusion Cash; a board to discuss specific offers found on the Fusion Cash site; a board to suggest new ideas for Fusion Cash; a board to take part in weekly contests and promotions (usually a trivia game or sports prediction) to earn more from Fusion Cash; and my personal favorite = a board to discuss just about any other off topic theme.

Now for the part that makes this so special!  If you regularly participate in the community forum, you will earn an additional $3 a month!  If you have at least 30 forum posts in one calendar month (they have to be posts of actual substance and not simply “Me too” or “I agree” or “+1”) you are eligible to get a $3.00 bonus credited to your account the following month. You have to actually request the bonus through a simple 20 second process and submission of an online form — you will not be credited with the bonus automatically (with thousands of users, Fusion Cash cannot spend the time seeking out all eligible posts, but they will check everyone who submits the request form).  Browse the forum and write a minimum of just one post a day and you will qualify for this bonus every month (except in February where you will have to double it up at least a few days).  There are so many interesting topics discussed back and forth here, I usually have 30 eligible posts by the 10th or 15th of the month!

If you calculate that into the minimum earnings discussed above, that extra and easy $3.00 will increase your minimum earnings up to $9.60 a month, allowing you to reach the minimum payout of $25 in under three months.  Again, this is just by completing the bare minimums!!!

These are just a few of the easy and interesting ways you can earn money on Fusion Cash. If you sign up and initially have trouble finding your way around, don’t sweat it — I was a little bit lost and confused at first also!  But the community forum is a WONDERFUL resource for assistance.  The very first thing you should read (after the Terms of Service, of course) is this helpful post in the community forum.

This really only touches the tip of the iceberg when it comes to earning easy money on Fusion Cash.  There is so much more available if you fully explore the site and pick the brains of the experts in the forum.  I am not an expert, but I try to be helpful when I can, so seek me out in the forum under user name UGetPaid.

Peko – Peko

I’ve had a number of people email me asking for tips and advice on how to earn money using the Peko app.  Rather than type out the same email response over and over again, I decided this topic was very well suited for a new blog post — something I have been neglecting quite a bit recently.  Maybe this will jump start the blog back to life!
 
If you already have a Peko account and are familiar with the basics of how to use the app and are just looking for usage tips, you can skip the introduction below and scroll down to the other headers.  This post does not cover every single aspect of Peko, but provides enough information to get you started and well on your way to earning points.  Some of the features are not necessarily available in all areas and some of the newly added features I do not use regularly so I am not yet able to talk about intelligently.
 
(I will try to add some screen shots to this post in the near future to make it a little easier to follow and navigate through the app.)
 

Background

When I first heard about the Peko app and downloaded it, it sat dormant on my phone for nearly a month because I had NO idea how it worked or what to do — so I feel for any of you who are just as confused!  I lost a month worth of earning due to the lack of real instructions or guidance from within the app.  Once I finally figured it out, I was amazed at how simple it really is and how fast I was able to accumulate points.  (That said, recent changes to the app’s payout have greatly affected cash out frequency, so those new to the app unfortunately will not be able to cash out as quickly as I did once I got the hang of it).
 
So keep in mind that, although it DOES take a long time to accumulate enough points to cash out, keep in mind these four things: (1) It is very easy to do/use; (2) It does not cost you anything to use; (3) It does eventually pay out if you keep playing; (4) It can actually be fun along the way!
 
Using the tips below, I have been able to earn over $80.00 in just over six months. You will not likely earn as much as fast anymore due to the recent reduction in points, but they do eventually payout.  You can see my payment proofs for verification of legitimacy.
 

So what is Peko and how do you earn money using it?

You must have a Facebook account to sign up with Peko.  I was not happy with that being the only sign up option.  Although many apps have that signup/sign-in option for convenience, I always opt to have a separate username and password for any apps and keep them independent from my Facebook account.  However, with the promise of earning money using the app, I decided to try it and went ahead with the Facebook sign up.  I would still prefer an independent login, but I am happy to say that Peko has not given me endless prompts to share on my Facebook timeline of spam my Facebook friends.
 
Once you sign up with Peko, you generally have up to 10 ‘peko‘ to use — you use a peko very much like the poke feature on Facebook if you are familiar with how that worked. You must first pull up the profile of another user and tap the peko button at the bottom of the screen to peko that user.  He or she then has 60 minutes to peko you back.  (If you get a return peko within ten minutes, you will get a 25% bonus on the points you score).  If you peko goes un-responded for 60 minutes you LOSE your peko.  This makes it very important to only peko users that you know are online and are currently using the app.  The “Find People” tab is virtually worthless and I NEVER use it.  It only wastes your pekos because it looks for users who are close to you geographically, but there is no guarantee that the users it finds are actively monitoring the app.  I have NEVER had any luck finding an active user this way.
 
My apologies if this starts to sound confusing…  Each time you initiate a peko to someone else, you use up one of your existing pekos.  But if you are on the receiving end and someone ELSE peko’s YOU, it does not cost you a thing to peko back!  Those are free plays to you.
 
The BEST way to make sure you peko an active user is to either find a user actively begging for pekos under the “Scramble Match” tab (you will recognize the solicitations flying right to left across the screen); or my personal favorite: tap on the menu icon that appears in the bottom right of the screen showing your recent peko scores.  This will show you all users who have recently won points on the Jackpot Challenge  The screen will show you a list of profile photos, the jackpot and points won by each user, and a time stamp of when they won that jackpot.  You will see that the list includes very recent winners who are still likely using the app.
 

What is the Main Peko Game?

Once you achieve a “peko-peko” (where you’ve been pekoed back by another user), you have the chance to play a roulette game.  Press the button to drop a spinning ball into a roulette wheel.  The point values for blue, green, and gold slots are displayed (these vary from game to game).  Blue slots pay very little and are the most represented in the wheel.  Green slots pay a little bit better but there are far fewer green than blue slots. Gold slots pay the most but there is only one gold slot on the wheel. Gold also gives you the option to play the Jackpot Challenge explained below.
 
You and your peko partner each have the chance to play the game and you each split your points with each other.  KEEP IN MIND that not everyone plays their peko-peko’s immediately — so you may not get credit for your partner’s spin right away, but you WILL eventually, even if not until a few days later.  If you click the “My Challenges” tab, you will see which peko-peko’s have been played and which still need to be played (either by you or by your partner).
 

What is the Jackpot Challenge?

If you OR YOUR PARTNER get the gold slot, then you BOTH have the chance to play the Jackpot Challenge.  This is similar to a slot machine with the chance to earn a lot more Peko points.  You have ten chances to match three symbols for various payouts (but once you win any one value, your remaining chances are forfeited back).  Payouts range from 100 points (three cherries) to 100,000 points (three blue 7’s) and various denominations in between.
 
All jackpot winners of any amount other than the three cherries/100 points and three oranges/300 points are then placed in the recent winners area described above.  If you win a Jackpot, be prepared to receive a few peko requests from other users!
 

What is a Scramble Match?

In addition to the users begging for pekos, the Scramble Match page also has a third game available to you.  The scramble game is almost identical to the popular Candy Crush game where you must match 3, 4, or 5 objects of the same color to remove them from the board and earn points.
 
Multiple users (2 – 4) may join an active game and compete against each other for about 30 seconds to see who gets the highest score.  Some game are free and some cost you points to enter (these are clearly labeled before you join).  If you join a points game, you will LOSE your entry fee if you score the lowest in the game; depending on the number of players, you may break even or win/lose a small amount of points if you score somewhere in the middle; and you will win additional points if you score the highest.
 
Although the potential to win points quickly is tempting, you can also quickly lose your hard earned points here, so consider yourself warned!  This is also a good spot to find active users to peko or be peko’ed.
 

Make the Most of Your Free Pekos

The app gives you one ‘peko‘ each hour up to a maximum of 10, so if you let the app go for more than 12 hours without using it, you will miss out on at least 2 peko chances.  ALSO, anytime you peko someone, the clock for earning your next peko automatically resets to a full 60 minutes.  So if you have less than 10 pekos to use, be careful to only use them when your timer to earning the next peko is at 50-60 minutes so that you do not lose all of your time spent on earning your next peko.  As a general rule, if I see my next peko timer at less than 45-50 minutes, instead of using them, I set a separate timer on my device to alert me in 45-50 minutes.  When that timer goes off, I check my peko timer again to make sure I’ve earned that additional peko before using any of them up.
 
If you aren’t able to be that precise with timing your pekos, you should at least check in two or three times a day to use up your accumulated pekos. If I am unable to closely monitor my pekos on a particular day, I try to at least check in soon after I wake up in the morning and again in the evening sometime after dinner.  Even on that schedule, I am guaranteed to use at least 20 pekos in one day.
 
Note: If you have a friend who also pekos, you are only able to achieve a peko-peko with the same user once every 12 hours.

These have been my best methods to maximize Peko points.  That plus a little bit of luck getting Gold and winning Jackpot Challenges!

I hope these explanations and tips may be of some help to anyone confused with Peko!

Secret Agent

I stayed away from the mystery shopper arena after hearing many stories of scams.  But a  tip back in December of 2012 put me on to Field Agent – a mobile app currently exclusive to the iPhone, but one which will likely spread to other mobile operating systems.

The Field Agent app routinely offers its agents tasks or “missions” to check the status of products offered for sale in a local store – much like those presented to mystery shoppers.  Your mission, if you choose to accept it, must be completed within 120 minutes of acceptance.  Completing a mission will result in a pre-determined dollar amount deposited into your account and the addition of reputation points to your profile.  If you do not complete the mission within the required two hours, you will forfeit the mission and you will lose reputation points for your failure.  This is important because the higher your reputation score is, the more likely you will be asked to perform future missions.

With that in mind: Don’t “accept” a mission unless you have sufficient time to travel to the location and complete the mission.  Don’t “accept” a mission at 9:30 at night that requires an audit of product at a store that closes at 10:00.  The time limit to complete your mission doesn’t carry over until the store location opens up the next day.

The mission will generally have a particular shopping related purpose:

  • confirm that a product is being displayed in a specific location a certain way
  • confirm that enough of a particular product is stocked on the shelves and available for purchase
  • confirm the pricing of a product in a particular store

Most missions will require that you to document your findings with a photograph or multiple photographs.

I became a Field Agent in late December of 2012. On my very first weekend as an agent, I successfully completed two missions and earned $7.00 for them.  As of this blog post, I’ve accepted 31 missions and earned $101.25.

I have cashed out my account twice so far.  There is no minimum amount to reach before you can request a cash out –which is nice.  So you can request a cash out after each mission, or you can let your earnings build up into a larger payout.  Once you request a cash out, it may take up to 48 hours to receive funds in your PayPal account, but both of my requests have confirmed in less time than that.

The FAQ for Field Agents can be found here which answers many other questions you may have.

Clixsense is Cash-task-tic

Of all the PTC sites out there, none compare to Clixsense.  When I first joined Clixsense in 2010, it was pretty much just a penny click site with a great reputation, but took so long to ever earn enough money to cash out.

Over time, they added additional features to make it easier to earn more money faster.  I wrote about a few of those options on the PTC page.  But over the past year or so, Clixsense has evolved from a simple PTC site into much more.  If you haven’t signed up yet, you really are missing out.

One of the features that really sets Clixsense apart is its partnership with Crowdflower tasks.  Simply stated, you can exponentially increase your Clixsense earnings by performing simple web based tasks.  They are quite varied and some are easier to complete than others.  Most tasks involve conducting web searches and providing information about the search results.  Other involve analyzing tweets or forum posts and categorizing them in some fashion. Some pay only 1¢, but many pay much more than that.  Some tasks allow you to complete them multiple times, some you only have one shot at.

I began doing tasks through Clixsense on January 28, 2012.  In the one year since then, I have earned nearly $115.00 on tasks alone.

Tasks

$114.26 – Clixsense Tasks – January 29, 2013

For every $50 I earn exclusively through completing tasks, an additional $5 bonus is credited to my account as FREE MONEY!

Some of the tasks can be time consuming and not all of the bugs are worked out.  While it is frustrating to spend time on a task only to be informed of an error and receive no credit, the quick and easy money tasks outweigh the occasional frustration.  Many of the tasks require close attention and thought, but as long as you read the instructions and read the actual task content pages closely, you’ll be earning cash in no time!

App Trailers – Smart Money from a Smartphone

I’ll admit it.  I was an Apple hater. I did not like the way Steve Jobs refused to play nicely with devices that were made by other companies.  I did not like using the (obsolete) Apple machines used by my company and all the headaches that came along with them while I had much more sophisticated and powerful PCs at home.

In the mobile market, I started out with a Palm IIIc in 2001 and slowly graduated to other versions of the PalmOS devices until I finally got my first smartphone — the Palm Centro — in 2008.  That gave way to the Palm Pre+ and the updated webOS in 2010.  It was once even touted as an iPhone-killer.

Unfortunately, some poor decisions and lack of funding doomed the new line of Palm mobile devices to a small market share, thus greatly reducing the number and variety of apps developed for the operating system, thus reducing its market share even more, thus further reducing the number and variety of apps developed for the operating system, etc.

So when news surfaced of the new iPhone 5 being released, I finally sat up and took notice (having been burned on my purchase of an HP Touchpad one year before — but at least I got it at a bargain price).

One of the ultimate selling factors for me came from the large number of notices I’d gotten over the past two years from various online survey panels advertising their mobile surveys.  Invariably each time I tried to qualify for a mobile survey I was told that I couldn’t qualify without an Android or iPhone.

So on iPhone5 launch day 2012, I came over to the dark side and voluntarily purchased my very first Apple product.  My wife had an iPhone4 for over a year at that point and an iPad for almost as long.  My Palm loyalties prohibited me from playing with them, even though my wife invited me to on numerous occasions.

Some of my very first iPhone app downloads were in the survey panel field, but I soon became aware of another little goldmine in the iOS app arena.  App Trailers is a moneymaker if I’ve ever seen one!  I quickly added it to the content pages on this site, but waited a few before writing a full blog post on it.

Simply stated, App Trailers‘ schtick is to get you to try (and buy) apps for your smartphone.  While I admit that I have downloaded a small number of apps after seeing their trailers using this app, a reasonable budget and limited data space have helped me to exercise some restraint.

App Trailers allows you to view short 30-60 second clips of various apps and theatrical release movie trailers.  In return, you earn points which can be redeemed for instant gift card codes or PayPal funds. Some videos earn more than others, some can be watched multiple times. You won’t earn a LOT, but if you are busy working on a computer or watching your favorite TV show, you simply need to tap the “Watch Trailer” button over and over again (if watching one of the multiple view videos) and the pennies will eventually add up to dollars.

You can also try your luck at a free daily scratch off ticket within the app to earn a little bit more, or wager some of your credits for an even larger scratch off payout.  The app also allows you to check in to see if any paid apps are being offered for free on that particular day.

I signed up for App Trailers in October of 2012.  As of this posting I’ve earned $20.00. Tremendous amount? No.  Twenty dollars that I wouldn’t have had otherwise?  Yes.

If you don’t have this app installed, you ARE MISSING OUT on free money.  After installing this app, please locate the offer below (in the videos section) and enter “rustyapp” (without the quotes) as your referral code.  It will earn you some additional credit!

Lights, Camera, Action!

Over the past few months, I’ve ventured into a few new (to me) online money making panels.  Last month, I gave a short Jingit review here (which I am pleased to now offer my full endorsement as I’ve consistently earned roughly $1.00 a week over the past 2 months).  Around the same time I published the Jingit post, I signed up for a membership with the MindSwarms survey panel.  I held off blogging about it until I was able to become more familiar with it.

While most online surveys consist of 5 – 50 minutes of clicking check boxes or radio buttons and typing text into restrictive text box fields, MindSwarms offers you the opportunity to voice your opinions — literally.  After signing up and providing your preliminary demographic information, MindSwarms allows you to record a short sample video about your musical tastes using your computer’s web cam.  You are then presented with various survey screeners (much like the other standard online panels) where the end client determines if you meet the demographic from which they are looking for feedback.  If you are lucky enough to be selected, you then submit short (about 60 seconds) video recorded responses to one or more questions from the sponsor.  With limited spots reserved for each survey and a limited time to get in your video responses, you’ll want to act quickly when you receive an invitation.  It may take quite a few attempts before you qualify for a video survey, but trust me when I say that it is worth it!

The preliminary screening is usually less than six questions that only take about a minute or two to complete, so you aren’t drawn in to a time consuming 15 – 20 minute time investment with no payoff like you see in some of the other online panels.  But if you are lucky enough to get the “call back” to submit a video survey, you will earn $50.00 for your short 60 second opinion!  I don’t know about you, but I’ll answer a few short qualifying questions any day for the shot at earning $50 for a 60 second survey!

I joined MindSwarms on November 21, 2012 — then briefly forgot about it when I couldn’t get my webcam to work with their site.  (TIP: For some reason, the Firefox web browser would not allow my web cam to communicate with the MindSwarms site and only displayed static video, no matter what settings I tried to adjust.  If that happens for you, try using the Chrome browser instead — that cleared up my problem instantly.)  Once I finally troubleshot my video issues in the first week of December, I uploaded my sample video to MindSwarms and started responding to their screener surveys.  I didn’t figure I would qualify for anything, but to my surprise, I was invited to do a video survey on December 8th.  Although most surveys can be done using a PC webcam, this particular survey required use of an Android or iPhone with the MindSwarms app installed.

Without disclosing product details, the survey required me to purchase a product and give my honest opinion about it.  To address the obvious questions you might have: this purchase was less than $5.00 and was something I likely would have purchased at some point even had I not qualified for this survey.

I made my purchase Saturday evening, recorded and submitted my 60 second opinion about 20 minutes later, and then received confirmation that I would get $50 in my PayPal account within 24-48 hours.  That confirmation came on Monday evening.

Like anything else: “this message does not guarantee successful results and actual user results may differ”. . . but getting an extra 50 bucks two weeks before Christmas that I otherwise wouldn’t have had was worth it for me!

That’s the Sound of a Cash Register

Relatively new to the survey/mobile app arena is Jingit.  This website and mobile phone app allows you to earn cash by taking quick and simple consumer surveys about products available at your local Wal-Mart store.  After completing initial surveys, you are able to check in at your local Wal-Mart store to scan the barcodes of the featured products for more earnings.  Those check-ins are accompanied by short 30 second surveys.  If you decided to purchase that particular product (or if you’ve already purchased it in the past and still have it at home), you can then earn EVEN MORE cash if you re-scan the barcode at home.  The in store check-ins and at home scans require you to authorize your Jingit mobile app to use your GPS location.

Jingit is a fun way to earn a little bit of extra cash — doing a mini treasure hunt to find the right product in the store aisles, without  adding a tremendous amount of time to your shopping trip.

No Foolin’! Here’s the Proof!

Anyone can set up a web page and claim to have made hundreds or thousands of dollars by whatever means, but where is the proof?  Once you’ve signed up (and you ARE signing up, right?) you will have the opportunity to visit site specific message boards where users talk back and forth about the panel policies and payouts, etc.  Many of the panels linked in these pages encourage users to post messages when they receive payments or even post scans or photos of their “payment proofs” so that new members or guest visitors can see that real money is actually paid out.  This adds legitimacy to the panels for those who are not familiar with them and who personally have no proven track record.

I haven’t saved copies of all of my PTC and Survey payments.  Most of the early paper checks I received as payment, I simply endorsed and deposited into my bank account.  I keep an accurate record of my own earnings through a global spreadsheet updated daily and backed up regularly, but most of the checks stubs are gone.  When I first started earning money online, I wasn’t thinking about the benefit of documenting my payment proofs.  I didn’t know I would eventually create this web site and need proofs to demonstrate legitimate earnings to others.  So there will be some noticeable omissions in my initial payment proofs.

But I DO have many if not most of my electronic payment receipts from PayPal and AlertPay. So today, in honor of April Fool’s Day (but definitely NOT an April Fools Joke), I unveil my initial Payment Proofs.  As I receive more payments, I’ll flesh out the pages a bit more.  So for any of you visiting the site, still unsure whether this is all legitimate or just a waste of time/scam, I encourage you to browse through my Payment Proofs and see for yourself.

Business Cards

Today I am launching a new marketing campaign for Get Paid! from an idea a few months in the making. QR codes are popping up everywhere. Store shelves, restaurant windows, magazine ads — they are taking the world by storm with the market flood of smart phones with QR decoder apps. So Get Paid! got its own QR code in December 2011.

Great! A QR code! What to do with it??? I decided to design a simple business card with basic site information and drop the QR code onto it. I figured I could hand out a few here and there, post some cards at local public bulletin boards, maybe leave a few on the table at the coffee shop or public library…

So after my wife taught herself to use more than just the basics of Photoshop, I finally sat down a few weeks ago to design a Get Paid! business card. There are many business card templates and tutorials available online for designing a business card with Photoshop. I was going to print them out myself — even bought a packet of perforated business card paper from Staples. But then upon recently signing up with Cash Crate, I noticed one of the cash back offers was $4.00 back from Vistaprint for an order of business cards.

You’ve maybe seen the recent TV commercials where new small business owners describe all the unexpected hiccups in opening the new business, but the one aspect that went smoothly without a hitch was the order for new business cards from Vistaprint. So for less than $15 (before my $4 credit to Cash Crate), I ordered a set of 250 business cards with the following design.

I submitted the card graphic and order online on March 4th and got my 250 cards in the mail yesterday. It was a quick turnaround and allowed me to get a jump on the new marketing plan. I hope to get some inexpensive exposure for Get Paid! Maybe this idea would work for you either for a small home business, or an affiliate marketing web site. Find a unique niche to strategically leave your cards, and viola! Instant exposure to targeted clientele.
