Some companies are so desperate to get you to visit their
sponsors, they'll actually pay you!
OK, so they're not really desperate. They're just willing to
share with you some of the money they get from their advertisers.
Some companies pay you cash while others award you points which you
can use to buy products and services from their sponsors.
Here's an example - let's say XYZ Rewards is a "get paid to visit"
company that you've joined. Let's also pretend they've been hired by
Widget Makers to drive more traffic to the WidgetMakers.com web site.
WidgetMakers.com agrees to pay XYZ Rewards 5¢ every time XYZ gets
someone to visit WidgetMakers.com. As an incentive for you to click on
WidgetMakers.com's link or banner and visit their site, XYZ will give
you 3 of that 5 cents. And if someone referred you to XYZ, then that
person gets 1¢ every time you click a link or banner.
If that's the case, XYZ rewards is only keeping 1 out of every
5 cents they make - not much of a profit. Or is it? With the huge
increase of people visiting the WidgetMakers.com web site (since
they're now getting paid to do so), XYZ is making a lot more money
than they would be if they weren't paying people to visit. Make sense?
To make things easier, most of the companies categorize their
links or banners so that you can choose to visit sites that interest
you. Give these companies a try - they're free!
