How Can You Make Money Sharing Stuff on Social Media?

I'd like to share a site that I'm finding is fun and easy to use. MyLikes is a site that lets you make money from sharing stuff.

You need to have 1) a social media account with lots of fans/followers/likes and 2) a paypal account.

There are two ways you can work this. You can use twitter by tweeting the ones that say "tweet" beside it or you can use the ones that say Web by copying and pasting the link into your social media accounts - that includes Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Tumblr.

Now, the key to making some actual money with this is that you have to share lots. Each share only gets a small amount of exposure to people (unless you have a massive Facebook Page). So the more you share the more you make.

Some of them are obvious ads while others are fun and interesting posts like this: 

Can you spot the terrible photoshop mistakes in these pictures?

It's not going to make you rich but an extra $10 a month adds up. SOME people make hundreds a day!

So, if this sounds interesting to you, give it a try.

SwagBucks - the Search Engine You Can Earn With

Ok - who is using SwagBucks as their search engine? Why? Because you can earn $$$$!  Well, if you're not signed up already start here:

Now how do you earn? Well, first and foremost, make sure that SwagBucks is your default search engine because for every search you do you could win SwagBucks. As little as a few up to $50 or even more (that's the most I've gotten on a search).

But that's not all. You can earn SwagBucks by shopping. Do you shop online at all? I know I do. I buy a lot of ebooks at Kindle. I buy stuff at And if you enter the store through your SwagBucks links you earn more SwagBucks for every dollar you spend. And there are lots of stores to choose from like Walmart, Sears, Bath and Body, etc.

Ok, so I'm not done yet. You can do surveys, watch videos, do a daily poll, play games, and a whole bunch of stuff. Now, you don't want to sit around all day long doing this stuff but if you have five minutes, watch a video or something. Over time it adds up. I'm really close to cashing out with $50 in PayPal. You can also cash out by getting an gift card or a whole bunch of other stuff. 

It's fun and easy and you can do it when you have a few minutes.

Tellwut - Easy Surveys, Get Gift Cards

I discovered Tellwut about a year ago and I finally got my mom to sign up for this one.  I like this one for surveys because you can just do a short survey or two when you have a few minutes to spare.  You don't have to go through the process of finding out if you qualify for the survey because everyone qualifies for the surveys.

Join tellwut - click the picture!
You can start doing easy surveys right away.  Each survey is worth 5 or 10 points and takes no more than 30 seconds to do.  Once you have enough points you can cash out for gift cards.  My favorite is the Amazon gift cards (.com or .ca) because you can buy so much at Amazon.  I save them up for when I want things or for holidays. But you can also get gift cards for Best Buy and other retail stores.

Time to Wake This Place Up!

Hey all,

I've been pretty absent for awhile lately but I think I am going to take a stab at reviving this site a bit.  Part of the reason I'm doing that is because I'm going to start looking into other ways to make money online besides just writing. I will be still writing and talking about residual income sites where you can write but I'll be adding things like survey sites and email sites, too. Why?

Well, my mom is in her 60s and she's living on her senior's income now (in Canada that's about $1400 a month) and she's finding it pretty tough to make ends meet sometimes. Especially if she ever wants to do things like buy an ebook to read or whatever.  So, I'm going to try and help her get going on making a bit of money online doing things that are pretty easy.

I figure this is a good place to maybe talk about those things.

I know there are a lot of people that want to learn how to do these things so I'm going to try to help here.

If there's something in particular that you want me to look into please leave me a comment!
