Hey guys! I know I have a TON of updates to post here.. I haven’t been around for a while because I’ve been working long hours at my day job. I promise to get to all the payment proofs, etc… when I’m off for the ENTIRE week next week! I’m definitely looking forward to that break and catching up with my online work.
However, this post couldn’t wait!
I just discovered a new site, thanks to my friend Squish, and I’ve only been using it for about 15 minutes and I’m already in love with it. It’s called Crowdtap and it’s a site that allows you to earn points and cash by doing various tasks which include taking polls, viewing sites, sampling new products, giving your opinion on ads, brainstorming with brands, and basically influencing products and services. In addition to making money for yourself, 5% of your earnings are automatically donated to charity so you’re helping a good cause as well!
How Does Crowdtap Work?
You are required to register to the site using your Facebook account. I think this is very convenient since almost everyone has a Facebook account lately. After signing up, you are given the option to post about it to your friends. You don’t have to, but if they sign up from your wall, you get added bonuses. You can then complete your Bio and Contact Info for points which will put you in Level 2 and you’ll qualify for new “actions” such as taking simple polls for points and cash. From there, you should pretty much figure out the rest. It’s not difficult at all!
One other important thing to read about after joining is Quality Score. Your Quality Score is your reputation on Crowdtap. Maintaining a good reputation is the most important factor in receiving new actions. If your score drops to zero, your account will be suspended. There are tips you can read that will help you to increase your quality score.
Is Crowdtap A Scam?
So, sounds a bit too good to be true right? Sounds like a scam to you? Well, I haven’t cashed out yet from this site, since I only started using it about 15 minutes ago, but so far it seems legit to me. The site is in BETA though, so I’m sure they’re still working out some of the bugs and issues. However, everything’s been going fine for me thus far and I highly recommend it! I’ve already earned $1.60 in cash and 1,175 points since I’ve been using the site just about 15 minutes ago! Two days ago, Crowdtap tweeted that they just got their 50,000th member, so apparently a lot of other people are already on to it as well.
What’s the difference between cash and points?
Well taken directly from the Crowdtap blog; the amount of cash that is displayed is the amount that you can cash out for an Amazon gift card when you have at least $10. Points on the other hand, cannot be redeemed for cash or prizes. It is only a way to increase your level on the site, which allows you to qualify for more opportunities to earn money. Therefore they are still very important for your progress in the site.
I highly recommend giving this one a try. I know it’s a new site, and I usually don’t promote new sites, but this one seems promising, and it’s really very easy so you have nothing to lose but a little bit of your time. The polls are also actually kind of fun!
