For a living I use my skills to develop software (whether mobile or not). This does not mean that I can not or will not add new sources of income.
Quite the contrary. Any new source of income that I can add without it requiring too many time and effort of me is welcome.
The sources of extra income, in my view, need not generate huge amounts of money. They can generate low value. What they can not in any way is to consume my time.
In October 2011, by chance I found a fantastic tool that is helping me to earn some more money on-line.
But why I say it is fantastic? Because it helps me make money doing something that I always do: write.
How so? I write many articles for my blog, I write on Twitter, sending emails to several people. And these writing activities, there are usually links to other sites, for videos, music, etc..
The tool I found out is a url shortener. But it is better than a simple shortener. It displays advertising before displaying the original content.
And the coolest thing: users don’t need to click on the ads. They just have to wait 5 seconds before they see the contents of the original url. After that you earned your money. Easy like that.
How does it work? You just need to register yourself and then short your urls. Every time someone clicks in the shortened link you’ve created an ad is shown for 5 seconds before user is redirected to the original url. That’s it. You made some easy money.
Moreover, payments are made automatically once per month, providing you have reached the minimum withdrawal amount of $5.00.
You can see here my earning on October 2011 (with just 65 posts on twitter and 1044 visitors on my site) on October 2011 and here my earnings on November 2011 (59 posts on twitter and 1327 visitors to my site).
Indeed it’s a small income but notice that it’s a small number of visitors and posts. Imagine how much one can earn with thousands of visitors.
Better yet, much like ads it provides passive income. The more you write, the more links you produce what means more money for you.
Know what? Register to start earning right now. After a couple of months, tell me what you think. I’m pretty sure you will enjoy it.
Please, try my games.
