Postloop Can Put Money in Your Pocket
Postloop pays you to post your opinion in forums and to be social in forums. This might be something you're doing already. I know for myself personally – there are several forums I go to each day. And a number of them that I go to each week. It's kinda part of my online job description. I like talking with like minded individuals – and I love being part of online communities that allow me to ask questions and learn from others, as well as answer questions and help others. Everyday I am amazed by the world the internet has opened up to all of us. True… there is always bad with the good. But for the most part, I think the internet is a valuable resource. Being 46, the internet hasn't been in my life always – only since I was about 28 years old. So I remember the “no ‘net” days.
But now with the internet, so many options for making money online. Just like PostLoop. And if you're someone that is surfing around on the internet daily any way — then this might be some cash in your pocket with little effort. And hey… we all know this talk about Fiscal Cliffs and a bad economy gives us lots of ambition to try and make some extra cash that we can sock away for an emergency.
Getting Started with PostLoop
You cannot just sign up with PostLoop and just start posting on forums like a crazy person. Nope. You have to put a little more effort into getting started than that. It IS free. So lets get that out of the way. And signing up is quick and easy.
You're going to click on the “Join” button at the top of the site:
You'll see signing up takes just a minute. You'll need to think of a user name and password.
After you've signed up and confirmed your new account via email. You'll log in and fill out your profile. Again – basic info and then seven categories that are of interest to you.
There will be a link at the top of page that says “forums” – you'll go here and see what forums are available for posting each day – BUT first you need to follow the “Instructions To Start Writing”. You must follow these instructions exactly as they state. They are simple – and you will not have any issues doing as they have asked. They've explained it really well and have an image to help you know where to go and what to click.
From that point – you're going to make 10 QUALITY posts on the forums provided. Now… for me – being a forum owner myself, my thoughts on quality are posts that actually say something. Not… “Hi… this is cool.”
NO no no no.
Come on. Be genuinely engaged in what you're reading and what you're posting. If you do that – you're golden. You'll have no issues at all. It's when you hurry yourself and write quick, thoughtless blurbs — then the quality goes down.
Your 10 Posts Are Approved – Now What?
If you're 10 posts are approved – then you've been emailed to let you know just that. This is why it's important to make good, quality, thoughtful posts. There are many that do not get approved.
But since you DID get approved – you're going to now go to the forums list (again – it's a link at the top), sign up for the forums that interest you and start making posts.
My advice is to create an email account JUST for your PostLoop work and use the same username and password for all the forums you sign up for. This is how I am doing it to keep confusion to a minimum. But, you could just make a different username and password for every forum and keep it all written down or somewhere handy. It's all about preference.
What Do I Earn? How Does PostLoop Pay Me?
Good question – because I'm not doing this for FREE. And I know you aren't either. The goal is to make money from home and keep building on that.
PostLoop rewards points for posts. Now – this won't be the same number of points for every post you make. Your point reward will vary depending on the post you made, where you made it and what your overall ranking is. So it will be worth your time to work on your rank. Of course – this goes hand in hand with posting great forum comments/posts.
Now these points are accumulated and then they are turned in for cash. So far I am averaging about .07 cents a point. I keep my rating around 4.00 – but I am hoping it goes higher.
You can cash in your points when they equal at least $5.00 – that's the minimum withdrawal threshold. But your user rating needs to be 3.95 or higher to be paid as well. So keep this in mind as you're doing your work on PostLoop.
My Thoughts So Far on PostLoop
I worked my way through my first 10 posts. It took less than 48 hours for them to be approved. I posted honest, genuine comments. I didn't try and fake it – or write something “thin”. I used correct spelling and grammar – not “texting” shortcuts and abbreviations.
I started working my way through forums after I was approved and signing up for ones that interested me. Right now I am averaging about 20 posts a day. It's averaging around 40 points. If I continue to do 20 posts a day M-F, I should have about 200 points – which if I figured it right – would be about $10 a week. That's $40 a month for my efforts on 20 days out of the month. I'd say I'll average about 12 hours a month working on it – so I'm being paid $3.34 an hour for minimal effort.
When it's broke down like that – it may not seem like much. But at the end of the month – snagging $40, well – that's pretty good to me. If I add that to my other streams of income with:
…and there are other programs I do and I include my earnings from Avon ($800-$1100) a month – so it becomes a full time income for me in the end. It's finding things you like to do and then sticking with it, referring others, building a team – whatever you're involved in. If a program fails… like recently, SuperPoints went under. I was so bummed. I was doing well. I had referred others and had cashed in my points for gift cards – and one day I go to the site and it's closed. Just like that. Ya gotta move on and find other things to do – just like PostLoop.
Final Word on PostLoop
I'm going for it. I'm going to try and push my rating to 4.5 and try and do a few more posts. I'd like my earnings to be around $50 a month.
If PostLoop sounds like something you'd like to try as well – here's the sign up link: PostLoop
* And yes… you can earn more referring others.
