Blabber Mouth

There is a new smartphone app out there from Apps That Pay, LLC (an independent company not affiliated with GetPaid!) called Blabber.  It is a messaging app, similar to Whatsapp or Facebook Messenger, but it will pay you to send text messages to your contacts. You can download the app here, install it to your smartphone and create a unique username.

Once you are fully signed up, look for my username @UGetPaid and add me to your contacts list.  I may send you daily messages if you add me (that’s the way to actually get paid for using the app) and I will respond to text messages that you send to me, but I will not spam. In fact, the app has a built in safeguard to prevent spamming! The app will not allow you to send more than three consecutive texts to another user without a reply back to you from that user. This prevents users from spamming the system and racking up illegitimate points. Unless you reply back to a particular user, they are prohibited from sending any new Blabber messages to you.

Because of the three consecutive texts limit, many users like to simply send short burst texts in packets of three. Often times what is said in three texts normally could be very easily said in just one. But as you’ll see below, the objective is to send out as many texts as possible, within the conditions of the Blabber app payout terms.

Although there is a three consecutive text limit, the whole point is to have Blabber users interact with each other.  So if you find a willing chat partner, there is nothing to prevent you from carrying on a lengthy conversation with them over the course of an entire afternoon or evening.

If you already text your spouse or significant other regularly, switch over to Blabber and earn back some money from those conversations! The earning rate is a bit low and you sometimes have to watch an ad after sending a Blabber text before you can send another one (they have to pay for your earnings somehow), but what kind of coin are you presently earning using your regular texting program? Regardless of the Blabber pay rate, you’re still coming out ahead by using it as opposed to not!

The app basically pays you 1¢ for every ten texts that you send out. The app consumes the same amount of data as you would spend using any other standard messaging app. Standard data rates may apply, but as long as you are connected to a WiFi network, that should prevent you from using any of your mobile data using Blabber. (Tip: the ads will also take up a small amount of data, so keep that in mind before heavy usage outside of a WiFi connection).

So let’s do the math. You earn a dollar for every 1000 texts you send and you can request a cash out after $15.00.  15,000 texts sounds like quite a lot before you get paid, and it can be, but if you talk fifteen of your friends into using Blabber and send out twenty texts a day to each (look at your current texting usage and you will realize how simple it is reach those numbers) you can cash out in under two months!

Don’t have fifteen friends? No problem.  Make fifteen new friends already on Blabber – current users are always looking for new people willing to text because the more active contacts you know, the easier and faster it is to reach the cash out minimum.

As I mentioned above, the key to faster earning from Blabber is to expand your contact list. You can find other users looking to make new contacts here. Some Blabber users are looking to chat and have full friendly conversations. Some Blabber users are only interested in sending out as many three text bursts as they can and sometimes they may not even make any sense. You have to decide for yourself where you fall on the spectrum and proceed accordingly.

With Blabber, you can also make audio and video calls with your contacts. I have not yet tried this feature, so I am not sure of the a/v quality and I don’t believe you will earn anything from those calls.

Whether you’re just starting out or you’re already a professional Blabber, please FEEL FREE to add UGetPaid to your Blabber contacts and drop me a note — or three ;-).  I cannot promise it will always be engaging conversation or guarantee how quickly I may respond. But I will respond to any texts you send, giving you the opportunity to fire off at least three more messages my way and get that much closer to your 15,000 text goal.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up for Blabber today, add UGetPaid to your contacts and find a few other friends, and start your journey toward free cash doing something that you already do every single day more often than you even realize! What could be better?

New Year’s Resolutions

If you are like me, you like to stay on top of your online earnings and keep a record of how each app, site, and survey panel is performing. Otherwise, how would you know which to focus on and which to retire?  Maybe you’ve never considered it before; maybe you document all of your earnings down to the penny; or maybe you fall somewhere in between.

There is no right or wrong way to track your earnings — all you need is a simple spreadsheet and an idea of how general or detailed you want your tracking to be.  If you’ve never kept track of you earnings before, but wish that you had and don’t know where to start — there’s no time like the present.  Start fresh on January 1, 2017!

My method is definitely not the most logical or artful, but it accomplishes what I need — a detailed summary of my earnings as close to the penny as practicable, but with a minimal margin of human error.  I have a master spreadsheet with an individual tab for each respective site/app/panel.  I access and edit this spreadsheet often as I accumulate points or dollars and cents from each source. I don’t necessarily keep every tab up to date daily, but I do what I can.  I have dozens of tabs in that workbook, each tab is color coded based upon whether it is a survey site, a PTC site, a smartphone app, or miscellaneous.  If a particular earning source is both an app and a survey site, I just pick whichever category it better fits in and color code it accordingly. The color coding makes it easier to find specific tabs as my number of tabs increases and requires some scrolling to get from one end of the workbook to the other.

I am not an Excel expert and much of my content and tracking formulas are revised through trial and error, but it ultimately tells me what I want to know. Many of the different tabs have the same or very similar layouts, but some others look quite different.  This is because some earning sources credit in points with a strange conversion to dollar earnings, while others are straight dollar and cents.  Some apps pay out only after you’ve reached a minimum threshold of earnings, while others pay out each time you complete a particular task so that you never have a “pending” balance.

I try to put all of the following information into each tab either in a static location or through running columns with Excel formulas to generate updated figures:

  • name of the app or panel
  • website (if applicable)
  • minimum payout amount
  • the date I first joined
  • total earned as of December 31st of each year (crucial to calculation of YTD earnings)
  • current points earned with an adjacent cell conversion to current dollar value earned *
  • amount remaining to be earned to reach the minimum payout
  • amount pending but not yet credited (if any)
  • total actually received through previous payouts
  • total earned year-to-date
  • global total (combining all the earning categories together from the beginning of time)*
  • cash out request dates + amount + received dates

*Once the rest of the sheet is properly tweaked, the current points earned cell is usually the only value which requires regular updating on a daily or weekly basis.

*This is where I pull my earnings figures reported on the GetPaid! site.

I also jot random notes to myself specific to each tab representing quirks of my calculation and conversion formulas or any special handling or requirements unique to each app/site/panel.

I then have separate overall category tabs (PTC, Surveys, Apps, Other, etc.) which gather up all of the key figures from each tab in that particular category.  So I can look to those sheets to know generally how much I am earning overall from surveys, or apps, or PTCs, etc. in total as opposed to each one individually.

Finally I have a TOTALS tab which summarizes all of the categories in a single location and gives me a global breakdown of all of my online/mobile earnings from everywhere – right to the bottom line of over $18,000 total earned since 2010 when I first started this run.

My explanation may sound complicated and it may be WAY more information or detail than you are interested in, so I’ve posted a few sample pages from my most recent earnings for a visual review: Sample Clixsense Tab | Sample FusionCash Tab | Sample mPOINTS Tab | Sample Total Tab These are just a few pages to give you a feel for how they look. (You may need to zoom in to read the actual detail).

At the end of each month. I save an archived copy of the master spreadsheet for historical tracking.  Then at the beginning of each year, I make the necessary adjustments to reflect a new year-to-date starting balance of ZERO for each tab. It really is beneficial to keep a running track of both the year-to-date earnings and the overall earnings across the years. But like I commented above, if you haven’t tracked your historical earning and want to start, January 1st is always a great time to begin!

I am neither an Excel expert nor an accountant. I know that my method can be greatly improved. It has undergone many revisions over the years and it now looks very little like it did when I first began tracking my earnings. I expect it to look still different in another few years after I’ve made more changes I’m sure.  If you have your own system for tracking earnings and want to share, please leave your remarks in the comments.

Beware of the Scams – Sign Up Fees

Many people find GetPaid! through search engines looking for ways to earn money using their smartphones or by joining money making sites.  A few people have stumbled across the site by other means, but the vast majority of GetPaid! visitors are actively seeking out money making opportunities.

There are many great opportunities online to accomplish this goal. A quick read through the GetPaid! content pages will confirm this point.  But there are thousands of scammers out there, who have the same goal as you – to make easy money online. Unfortunately, their tactics involve taking money away from users like you and I with the false promise to pay that money and more back to us after we buy in to their programs.  These folks already know that we are actively looking for ways to earn money. This gives the scammers an edge — they already have a target victim predisposed to sign up to a new service (or a well disguised scam if it sounds legitimate enough) and they will do anything they can to “sell” their scams to us because it means another few dollars in their pockets. So while you are trying to earn some extra cash honestly and legitimately, the scammers are trying to wrestle that cash away from you through fraud and false promises.

I recently had a GetPaid! visitor (I’ll call her “Jean” but that was not her real name) contact me asking my opinion about a new site she had recently joined.  I am not going to disclose the particular site, but Jean asked GetPaid!: “I just have a question about this new company. I signed up but it’s not running yet. It will start Jan 10th. I was hoping you could see if this is worth my time. It just seems so easy to me.” Jean then provided me with a link to the site.

I took a look at it. The site had a very professional design and some excellent promotional videos showing how the site will work. There were a few grammatical errors on the site, which can be a yellow flag, but then again, there have been several times that I have found typos on GetPaid! in reviewing the pages for editing and updating.  Jean’s proposed site was basically a paid-to-download-and-review-mobile-apps site.  But upon further review, two things jumped out at me.  First, there was no explanation of the pay scale anywhere on the site — other than the ability to earn through an affiliate downline ten levels deep.  Second, there was no mention anywhere on the site (except on the page where you actually join the service) that the site required a $25 “affiliate enrollment fee” to complete your application process.

Without any indication of payout rates, there is no telling how long it would take Jean to earn back that $25 affiliate enrollment fee — if ever. My guess was it would be difficult for Jean to make that money back without signing up a certain number of affiliates underneath her — making it more of a pyramid or MLM scheme than a legitimate money maker in my opinion. (I got burned with an MLM about 15 years ago and lost all of my $300 start up fee when it went under. My $300 made plenty of other people rich, but I ended up empty handed with nothing to show for it. It was an expensive lesson, but not a mistake I’ve made twice.)

One of the cardinal rules in this business — with very few exceptions — is to never sign up with an online money making site if they ask for a fee up front before you’ve made a dime from their site. If you read closely enough, you will see this warning repeated on the GetPaid! site pages. There are several legitimate sites out there (Clixsense for example) which give the option to upgrade your membership for an annual fee. This is an optional upgrade; this is not a required fee before you even sign up; this is a fee which you can pay directly out of you earnings from Clixsense so that no money ever comes directly out of your pocket.  As a result, you can earn back that upgrade fee and much more in far less time than the year long upgrade. But when you start out $25 in the hole (or $300 like happened to me above), you have no guarantee that you will ever break even unless you convince enough people to fall for the same scheme.

Based on Jean’s email and the layout of the personalized landing page from her link, it was obvious that Jean had already signed up for this new site and was going to need to do some work to climb out of her $25 hole.  Lucky for her, it was only $25. I asked Jean to please get back in touch with me if it turned out I was wrong in my initial reaction, but I don’t believe I was. Even so, I wished her well.  It was not long after responding to Jean that I decided this would be a good topic to add to the blog.  It won’t be an overwhelming portion, but I intend to include additional scam warnings in future publications to the GetPaid! blog.

So let this be your warning. Think twice – or better yet – think three times before you pay any money making site a sign up fee (or whatever catchy phrase they use to characterize it) just for the opportunity for you to earn future money from them. Somebody is making money from these sites, but it is not going to be you!

Shopkick Referral Offer – ACT FAST!

Many of the apps and web sites featured on GetPaid! offer referral bonuses. Usually these come as additional points added to your account which speed up the time it takes for you to cash out. Some of the bonuses are substantial, some of the bonuses are proverbial drops in the bucket.

I DO get a benefit from some of the apps and sites featured on GetPaid! if you decide to sign up using the links or referral codes displayed on GetPaid! I have been transparent about this from the very beginning and have made GetPaid! visitors aware of this. However, there are many apps and sites which do not offer any referral bonuses at all. This does not affect my decision to feature an app or site on GetPaid! and it does not affect my assessment of those featured apps or sites.

So there are some apps with bonuses and some without. Believe it or not, there is also a third category that one app neatly falls into. Shopkick is an app which offers a referral bonus, but only up to a certain number of referrals.  Once you hit that ceiling the Shopkick referral bonuses end – so I suppose you can say that it falls into BOTH categories.

If you haven’t read the explanation of Shopkick on the Apps that Pay page, this is a nifty app to take with you when you are shopping. You earn kicks (points) for visiting certain store chains.  Merely open up the app when you walk in at Walmart, Target, Macy’s, Best Buy, and dozens of other popular merchants and you may be eligible for a predetermined number of kicks.  Most stores also award kicks just for scanning the barcode of certain featured products available in that store. You can also earn even more kicks when you purchase certain designated items — or in some stores earn a certain number of kicks for every dollar you spend there, regardless of the products you buy.  To get these kicks, you may have to link a credit or debit card to the app in advance – but if you are reluctant to link your card information you can still earn hundreds of kicks just by doing featured product scans.  My daughter likes to treat this like a scavenger hunt game when we go shopping!

I’ve earned several hundred dollars with Shopkick and I earned a considerable amount of points by linking my own Shopkick referral bonus on GetPaid!, but I actually hit my max a few years ago and I am no longer eligible to earn Shopkick referral bonuses. It seemed like a waste of good space to let the GetPaid! referral links for Shopkick go unused. So when my limit maxed out, I substituted a friend’s Shopkick link, and then down the road I swapped in another.

I have since decided to take a new approach. Starting in January of 2017, I am going to open this up to GetPaid! followers and start rotating the Shopkick referral link each month based on the link codes I get from this form. The first person who responds to this post with a valid Shopkick referral link will get the full month of January 2017 on GetPaid! The second responder will get February 2017, and so on…

Under the current terms as of the original date of this post, Shopkick is giving the equivalent of $2.00 for each new referral. I will give you a full month of exposure with hundreds (if not thousands) of chances to earn that $2.00 referral multiple times over.  I cannot guarantee any referrals, but I can guarantee the exposure of your referral link. There is potential for significant earning if you get lucky!

Obviously you need to already be a Shopkick user in order to have your own referral code in the first place, but other than that, there are a few conditions and some important disclaimers to this promotion:

First, you must be an existing subscriber to the GetPaid! blog (or you must sign up as a new subscriber). When submitting the request form, you will be required to verify the email address you used to subscribe to GetPaid! If you are not yet a subscriber, simply look for the “Subscribe to Blog via Email” link at the end of this post and enter your email address.

Second, you must continue as a subscriber and still be an active subscriber at the time that your link is posted to GetPaid! If you unsubscribe from GetPaid! between the time that you request this link promotion and the time that your link is scheduled to go live you will forfeit your spot in line.

Third, you must like GetPaid! on Facebook.

Fourth, at this time GetPaid! is running this promotion to post Shopkick referral links ONLY. Any other referral link submissions, multiple submission of the same Shopkick referral link, or any other spam will be discarded and denied. GetPaid! reserves the right to reject and deny any legitimate Shopkick referral links from a spamming email or IP address as well.

All legitimate submissions meeting the above criteria will be assigned a “designated month” for the referral link to be activated on GetPaid! When your designated month arrives, I will send you an email letting you know that your link is active on GetPaid! and I would encourage you to visit GetPaid! upon receipt of that email to verify the same. Remember to check your link carefully before submitting this form. Your potential referrals can only happen if you give me a valid and working Shopkick referral link. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE for any typos or errors in your link that you supply.

As for the disclaimers, I make no promises that you will earn any Shopkick referrals during your designated month as I have no control over who does and does not sign up. My only promise is that you will get the same exposure as anyone else and will have an equal chance.

I make no promises on how soon after your submission your designated month will fall. This one is also out of my control and depends solely on how many people ahead of you respond. I will try to keep the information on the submission form updated so that you will have a general idea of how long that might be.

It’s that simple. Fill out this form to add your Shopkick referral link to GetPaid!

Whose Fans are Louder?

Free Money from Louder Rewards App!

Louder Rewards is a fun way to earn rewards using your smartphone. Not really a single app, but a whole series of apps, Louder Rewards has an app available for every major North American professional sports team. Find your teams’ apps and sign in to start earning points redeemable for gift cards or for team themed clothing and merchandise (including game jerseys and autographed memorabilia).

Louder Rewards is not licensed by the individual sports teams or leagues, so it is unable to include actual team names or logos (both of which are trademarked or copyrighted) in the individual Louder Rewards app names and logos — but beyond that legally required omission, the news and information provided is current and complete for all teams.

Once you open the app, you are presented with a steady stream of news, photographs, articles and other team related media items.  Interspersed with these items are team specific trivia quizzes, notifications of other app users who have redeemed Louder Rewards points for prizes, and other sports related material. Tap on an interesting article headline and you may find a button with the opportunity to be awarded a random number of points for reading the full article.  Notifications of other app user redemptions might include a “high five” button you can tap to claim more points. Complete trivia challenges at “Rookie” “Veteran” or “Hall of Fame” difficulty levels to claim even more points.  All of those points add up toward redemption for great items and gift cards.

Louder Rewards also offers opportunities to generate larger point rewards when you download and use other sponsored apps advertised within the Louder Rewards.  This brings me to the driving force behind Louder Rewards (other than fan motivation mentality). Like many other money making apps out there, Louder Rewards relies upon advertising to generate the means to offer the great rewards that it does. So you may randomly encounter a few video ads in the app while tapping on article links before you are able to move on to the next point opportunity.  They are fairly quick and painless, especially when you consider the free money and credit you are earning in exchange.

As a new feature in one of the more recent updates to the Louder Rewards apps, you can now choose your favorite teams across multiple sports and have the multiple article feeds reach you all under one Louder Rewards app — no need to switch back and forth to get the latest news on all of your favorite teams.  You may still want to download multiple apps to get a larger variety of reward redemptions.  All Louder Rewards apps have the same Amazon, Walmart, etc. gift cards, but you can only get an Antonio Brown jersey through the “Pittsburgh” football version of the app and the signed Larry Bird basketball is only redeemable through the “Boston” basketball app. However, as long as you are logged in on each Louder Rewards app on your phone, your pool of points accumulates across them all!

The developers of the app are Seattle Seahawk fans, who are rumored to be the loudest fan crowd in the NFL.  When you first follow the Louder Rewards link, you may be prompted to download the Seattle football app.  But if you are looking for another football team, or another sport, don’t be discouraged! They are all there. Don’t miss this opportunity to show them whose fans are louder, and earn sweet rewards in the process!

Love Some Ads

With the rise in popularity of DVRs and the mentality of instant gratification, TV commercials have taken a big hit.  I will admit that fast forwarding through TV ads has become typical of my own television watching.  But with the release of the AdLove app, that may all change!

Free Money from AdLove App!

AdLove uses your smartphone microphone to listen in to what you are watching on television (with your permission or course). When the show breaks for a commercial, AdLove will match up the ad to its database and ask you to rate the commercial on a scale of one to five stars. Rate an ad and get 75 points (or roughly 0.75 cents); occasionally you will get the chance to offer a bit more feedback for a higher reward.  It is a very simple and easy process and allows you to quickly earn money as you watch TV.

Earn 50,000 points and cash out a $5.00 reward! It may sound like a lot, but it really is simple and easy to accumulate points with minimal effort. In addition to rating TV ads, you can also watch bonus in app ads to accumulate additional points.

Now for a quick test of your own views toward instant gratification versus a delayed higher reward! AdLove will allow me to refer up to 15 new users to the app by email or text message. The first 15 followers who complete the form below, with a valid email address or text phone number, will each receive a unique invitation referral code to join AdLove.  If you use the referral code, you can get a head start with 4,000 points added to your AdLove account – but you may have to wait a few hours or longer before I see your request and get a referral code back out to you. Or you can go for the instant gratification and sign up to the app without a referral code, by using the links contained in this blog post. The choice is up to you.  Either way you choose to go, you cannot lose with AdLove!

1Q

 

Free Money from 1Q App!

1Q is one of the simplest money making apps out there.  Once installed on your phone, you will get periodic questions sent to you through the app.  Answer a single question, get 25¢. It REALLY IS that simple. Most questions give you a series of multiple choice answers to select from.  These aren’t trivia questions with right and wrong answers, they are more like micro-surveys where you are asked your opinion or which category you personally fall into on a particular topic.1Q = One Question.  That’s it!

You only have a limited time to submit your response (usually a matter of minutes) so make sure you set 1Q notifications to alert you when new questions come in.  Questions from 1Q come in with irregular frequency, so you really need to keep an eye out for them so that the do not expire, but there are fewer ways to make easier money than this.  If you saw a quarter laying on the sidewalk, you would pick it up, wouldn’t you? 1Q is no different!

There seriously in little more to it that this, so there is no need to write a lengthy blog entry about 1Q.  But you are definitely missing out if you don’t check it out.

VoxPopMe – Video Opinions

Free Money from VoxPopMe App!

Voxpopme is an excellent app to make money using your smartphone, but you sometimes have to act fast!  This app allows you to record short 60 second bursts of video opinion on specific products or brands.  Sometimes they ask for your opinion on a particular new commercial advertisement; sometimes they ask for your feelings on a particular brand or service provider; sometimes they ask general open ended questions, like whether you would want to live in another country (where and why).  Some questions are called “JFF” or Just For Fun where no money is earned by your response, but most questions are worth 50¢ to $1.00 if you give an approved response.  As long as you stay on topic and demonstrate that you know something about the product, you are likely to have an approved response.  If you do not answer the question asked or demonstrate that you are completely unfamiliar with the topic, you are likely to have your video response rejected.

But you have to be quick and I HIGHLY recommend allowing Voxpopme to alert you with notifications whenever a new question is released.  They only select for payment a certain number of submission for each question asked (often not more than 100).  Once their quota is reached, you are out of luck on that question.  I have had several occasions where I am recording or uploading my response only to discover that they hit their quota in the process!  So if you do not have notifications turned on for Voxpopme, you are unlikely to catch an open paying question.

Occasionally Voxpopme will notify you of a new “survey” available on the app.  These are unpaid — usually just a single question or two, used to match you up with future paid video questions.

This is a great app to earn some spare change with a minimal time investment.  Highly recommended!

This is Your Lucky Day

I love playing games, and who doesn’t? A good while ago, I found an App that pays you to play several casino/lottery type games. It is not much — you can certainly win a great deal more money by playing the slots at a real casino or dropping a few dollars on a Powerball ticket.  But you also stand to lose significant sums of money playing cards and really have only a tiny chance of ever winning the lottery.  Lucky Day on the other hand is absolutely 100% FREE!

Free Money from Lucky Day App!

With Lucky Day, you accumulate free playing chips daily which can then be used to play (at present) four different games of chance: Scratch-Off Lottery Tickets; Slot Machine; Lotto; and BlackJack.  Before going any further, here is a special tip for any visitors who download the Lucky Day app today.  Enter the referral code: 3s4tbi6 in the referral text box and you will receive 5,000 bonus chips to your account!

Different users’ preferences will vary, but I tend to play a lot of BlackJack as I think it is probably has the best odds to win the most chips.  Lucky Day differentiates between blue playing chips and gold winning chips.  Both categories are worth the same value, but you can only cash out gold winning chips when you want to convert your winnings into actual money in your PayPal account.  On the other hand, you can use BOTH blue AND gold chips to bet with when playing the Lucky Day games.  Rather than risk losing my gold chips, I usually only use my blue chips to play BlackJack and stop when they run out. Lucky Day will automatically draw first from you blue chips and only use gold chips if your blue stack is completely deleted, BUT you need to keep a close eye on the numbers if you’re like me and don’t want to risk any gold chips because Lucky Day does not pop up any notifications when you transition from one to the other. Enter referral code: 3s4tbi6 to get an additional 5,000 blue chips after downloading the app.

You can also get additional blue chips throughout the day by pressing the “FREE CHIPS” button to watch various ads.  You can take advantage of the FREE CHIPS button several times a day if you remember to check back often.

Cashing out is a simple process, but it may take a while to accumulate enough chips.  The exchange ratio is pretty high = 100,000 chips are roughly equivalent to 11 cents and you need $10.00 to cash out, but you can bank your accumulated gold chips in amounts as low as 100,000 (it only takes a few days of good Black Jack play to get there).  Once claimed, they will hold in your wallet until you reach the minimum $10.00 cash out amount. So what is the point of banking 11 cent increments if you cannot cash out with under $10.00?  I do it just to keep myself from accidentally betting on games using my gold chips.

Lucky Day provides for slow but steady earnings — what more can you really ask for from a free app?  They changed their model not very long ago.  Prior to the change, I found it extremely time consuming to occasionally win a dollar playing the slots (BlackJack was not offered at that time) and not very worthwhile.  I won’t go into details on how the former Lucky Day app model played out, but suffice to say, I didn’t play often and was very close to deleting the app off my phone. With the recent changes, this app is a winner that I frequently turn to when I have some down time to fill.

Download it today and enter referral code: 3s4tbi6 to get started!

Qriket Finds its Niche

So many money making apps have come and gone over the past several years. Just look at the App Graveyard to see evidence of that.  Admittedly, some were junk from the get-go, but many others were of fine design and great concept (and paid WELL) but just could not sustain themselves.  Whether it was growing faster than their means could support, an influx of similar apps competing for the same market share, or failing to update to adapt to changes, many of my favorite apps from the past no longer send regular deposits to my PayPal account.

Qriket (pronounced like the “Jiminy” insect) is one of the exceptional exceptions to this fate. Completely redesigned in both function and appearance from what it was when it first appeared in the app store, Qriket remains one of the best and most popular (and fun) money making apps out there.  Qriket began as an app providing chances to win money by scanning QR codes.  The “QR” code is where the name for the app originated.  Some QR codes provided instant winnings of a pre-determined amount, others would result in “spin codes” which you could use to spin a roulette wheel at a chance to win money. It’s marketing concept to early advertisers was as an app to encourage users to interact with QR code advertisements.  So many companies were using QR codes as a way to generate hits on their web sites and to get more information about their products directly into the hands of potential consumers. Qriket found a way to monetize QR scanning. However, that model was not destined for long term success.  Rather than ride a stagnate ship into a shipwrecked oblivion, Qriket evolved and grew into an app that was stronger, better, and faster.

Over the course of several updates, changes, and implementing new features, the current Qriket app looks and feels nothing like the original and has all but abandoned its ties to the promotion of QR codes (while not abandoning the catchy name). It still offers daily “spin codes” and the chance to win money by spinning the blue and gold wheel. Users watch daily ads to accumulate spins.  Users can also earn special spin codes through live video feeds – the folks behind Qriket give away special spin codes daily through various social media platforms.

Just recently, Qriket implemented a new feature called Qriket Live where participants can check in to a live video feed right from within the app. Users participate in a game for a prize of a tidy sum of cash.  Turn notifications on for your smart phone to be notified shortly before a new Qriket Live session. Once a new session begins, you can cash in unused spins for an entry into the game played out via a live video feed from Qriket headquarters. (If you are lucky you might stumble upon a FREE Qriket Live session which won’t cost you any spins at all).  Users have a short period of time (usually 2-4 minutes) to pick either blue or gold; once all picks are in or the time is up, Qriket co-founder Johnny Comparelli (on the live video feed) spins a giant wheel with equal blocks of gold and blue. Those players who picked the correct color move on to a second round, while those who picked the wrong color are eliminated.  Play continues over several rounds until only one player remains = winning the particular jackpot!  The odds of winning will vary depending on the number of players and rounds — and the odds are pretty small given that you must choose correctly multiple times in a row – at least one more than everybody else playing. Ultimately with only one winner, the chances to win closely resemble a sweepstakes entry. But unlike many other apps or sites that offer entries into sweepstakes, with Qriket Live you actually get to SEE the contest played out in real time and know that there is an ultimate winner.

Qriket also allows you to compete in head to head challenges where you set the maximum amount you are willing to bet and you spin against one other user willing to put up the same amount for a winner take all single spin.  This doesn’t require any deposit of funds, the money you are betting with comes right from your accumulated, but not yet cased out earnings from the app.

Qriket has recently grown to over one million users and is easily one of the more fun ways to earn money using your smartphone. Its founders’ ability to adapt to changing circumstances and still remain profitable is a testament to Qriket’s sustainability.
