A Million Steps to Making Money
Every journey begins with a single step. But how many steps does it end with?
If you're looking to make money, your answer to that question might very well be 1,000,000 steps, assuming you download the Million Steps app. I've blogged in the past about a few apps that you can use to make money simply by walking - something most of us do on a daily basis. Million Steps is another option to earn cash while you get in some healthy exercise. Download the app, give it permission to access your health data, and start that million step journey. Once you tally 1,000,000 steps, you can claim a cool $10.00.
If my math is right, some will protest that it would take 1,000 steps just to earn a penny at that rate. Yes - that is true. But if you are walking around already anyway, is that really a bad thing? Others might say, "If I walk 5,000 steps a day, it will still take me 200 days to cash out!" Yes that is also true. (And your brain is also getting a workout with all of this math!) But if you walk 10,000 steps a day, you can cut that payday time in half. The time it takes to cash in all depends on how much you decide to walk.
Million Steps pulls your step count from your smartphone. It currently does not sync with any fitness bands or pedometers, so you must have your phone on you to get credit for steps taken. But Million Steps also offers some daily bonuses to help increase your step totals. By default, it sets a maximum daily step count of 5,000, but you can increase that ceiling by watching short ads within the app. On a typical day, I watch several ads to get my step ceiling up to 10,000. Then at the end of the day, I can compare my Million Steps count to the step count in my health app. I can easily see how far I exceeded my ceiling and watch enough ads to maximize my Million Steps points for that day.
Million Steps allows you to see your daily and overall progress side by side. And if you tap the profile tab it will give you your current projected earnings in dollars and cents.
If you have a job that keeps you on your feet, or you hit the treadmill or the walking trails on any regular basis, or you just walk around the house over the course of a day, download Million Steps now and GetPaid for it! What have you got to lose?
