Most of us read email every day for a variety of reasons. Some of us
even check our email several times a day. Few of us actually get
paid to read email. That's about to change.
When you join a "get paid to read email" company and give them
information about yourself (demographic information, your interests,
your hobbies), you're helping that company build a database of
detailed information on its members. The company uses all this
information to attract advertisers who want to focus their
advertising to a specific group of people (like 35-year-old
fishermen, people interested in auto racing, or women interested in
The advertisers pay the company a set amount per email to send
their ad to everyone in that specific group. If you happen to fit the
criteria that the advertiser is looking for, you'll receive their
email and also get a cut of what the email company was paid to send
it to you.
Most of the companies require you to click on a link in
the email so they know you actually read it. But that seems fair,
Most of the companies will also pay you for referring people to
them. If you refer others, you'll get paid for every email that
they read too.
