A couple years ago, I came across a social networking site that promised to do something other sites don’t; pay you for using it. It sounded intriguing so, not only did I join Yuwie.com, I convinced my wife to join too.
The site was still in development at the time and had some issues so I ended up taking a break from it for a while. But, we recently started re-visiting it and, while there are still some things I don’t like about the site, I will say it is improving.
I’m not really a person who spends a lot of time on social networking Web sites. I check my Facebook page a couple times each day but, unlike a lot of people, I don’t live on it. In fact, most of my time on the Internet lately is spent in an effort to make some extra spending money; which is what attracted me to Yuwie.com in the first place.
The way Yuwie.com is supposed to work is you set up your profile page the same way you would on Myspace or Facebook. You can add photos, post blogs and leave comments for friends.
As you do this, and as people visit your page, you are earning page views. At the end of each month, the site splits a percentage of the advertising revenue it earns with its members based on the number of page views they generate. You earn money both from your own page views and from page views generated by members you referred. If you visit page like https://buzzvoice.com/instagram/followers/order, you might reckon that it is another way of paid advertisements. People will buy Instagram likes and followers. This is an easy way to grow your audience on social media, but the down side is that you have to spend some money on it.
When I first joined the site, I found it was much harder to earn money than it sounded. Again, I’m not a person who spends all day, every day on sites like this so I’m not going to generate a lot of page views on my own. And, my efforts to earn them from people I referred weren’t very successful (I get most of my earnings from my wife and she has about as many page views as I do). However, I have talked to a few people on the site that do earn a decent amount of money simply because they have the time to be on it and because they have a successful “referral tree.” So, the potential is there.
A couple years ago you needed about $20 or $25 to cash out; an amount I knew I would never be able to make so I gave up. But, they recently lowered that minimum to $5. Even with the small amount I make in a given month (usually less than 50 cents), that is an achievable number.
When I first joined, the site also had an issue where it would freeze up constantly. The site still does that on occasion but it isn’t any more of a problem than with Myspace and, unlike most social networking sites, you don’t have a bunch of pointless applications slowing things down. However, you do have quite a few advertisements you will have to contend with.
One attractive quality about this site is, unlike a lot of other social networking sites, Yuwie.com’s payment plan pretty much encourages people to interact with each other. I have been on some sites where people would send out random friend invites just to say they had a lot of “friends” only to not do anything after that; other than maybe sending out a generic comment. On Yuwie.com, I have had actual conversations with the people I meet. I’m not really the most social person out there. But, if you are a person who goes on-line to meet new people, I think this site has its advantages in that area.
It’s not for everyone. But, if you do spend a lot of time on social networking sites and feel you can invite enough friends and generate page views, Yuwie.com is a site that is worth checking out. You probably won’t make a fortune at it but it could be an easy way to make some extra spending money.
