Promoting MyDomain Brand Me Contest.

I’m not one for running contests, probably because the ones I have run have failed miserably :laugh_tb: but I do like to promote those that I feel some of my readers will appreciate. This contest is run by MyDomain and it’s all about Your Domain!

From what I can gather it’s all about promoting your domain. It’s open to all US residents and the prizes are $1000 Apple gift cards. Naturally there has to be something in it for MyDomains, and that something is exposure of the .ME extension for domain names. This is great for those who are thinking of a particular domain only to find that it’s been taken by somebody else. So if yourdomain.com is not available why not go for yourdomain.me before someone else takes it?

Come to think of it, a .me domain sounds pretty cool, especially if you were going to use your name as the domain.

I’m not sure if anyone has noticed but both my commenting, on other peoples blogs, as well as my posting frequency has decreased dramatically. Unfortunately my time has been required elsewhere, in the real world, as I have to see to family and business commitments. Hopefully things will quieten down soon and my online life will return to normal.

Anyway, in my last post I promised an update on how Sponsored Tweets can make you money and seeing as how this is going to be a short post I reckon I could squeeze it in.

The question you would all like to know is does Sponsored Tweets generate money for it’s members. The answer is yes! The amount depends on several factors, mainly the amount of followers you have and the amount of people you can entice to sign up under you.

As the amount of people following me is rather minuscule I’ve only had one offer netting me a whole buck. I’ve also earned another dollar from those you joined under me. As I earn 10 cents for every task they’ve received that means that several of them have had more than one task.

I don’t expect to retire on the income received from sponsored tweets I’m confident that the yearly income added to my other money spinners will make it all worth while. If I can increase my followers and increase the amount of people joining under my link I’m sure I could generate a couple of hundred dollars a year. Sure it’s not all that much, but come Christmas it will come in handy.

How The Things I Like Can Make Me Money


When first starting this blog I wanted a medium that covered many topics. I wanted to be able to share my poems and short stories with people. I wanted to show others my blogging tips and tricks. I also want to share with others different ways that I have found of making money on the net.

When trialling these money making ideas there’s always one thing that I try to keep constant, and that is it has to be free to join. I figure that at least that way all that you can lose is a little time, and I don’t mind being the guinea pig as long as it helps my readers.

As you can probably tell this post is leading to another money making venture and while I would like to take the honor for discovering it, that honor belongs to John Sullivan of PotPolitics fame where you will learn so many things including how to really master blogging.

So, thanks to a Tweet from John I joined mylikes under him as a publisher, as you can also join as an advertiser.  One of the things that I like about this site is that it lets you pick the sponsors that you like. This means that you can choose only those sponsors that you like and are relevant to your audience.

I also like the fact that they protect their advertisers in that they can disapprove any ‘likes’ if for the following reason;

  • The advertiser feels that the Like is not relevant to your audience.
  • The advertiser feels that the Like is mispresenting the product or service.
  • The advertiser feels that the Like is too generic and is not descriptive of the product or service.
  • You have used hate speech / abuse / full capital letters to write your Sponsored Like.

This helps to keep publishers honest meaning the advertiser gets the most value for their dollar.

What I love most about this site is that they pay per click. If you’re like me and you’ve been promoting many affiliates for years you have to admit that the most disappointing thing is that while you may generate up to a hundred clicks on a particular ad, unless someone actually purchases something you don’t earn a damn thing. That’s not so with mylikes as they will pay you 30c per click. So where the other campaign netted you a big fat zero, if an ad through mylikes generates 100 clicks you will have earned $30! That’s so much better than earning nothing at all.

For my first ‘like’ I chose a site called Prova and I picked Twitter as my medium for advertising it. Another reason to be very careful which sites you ‘like’ is that it will be displayed on your MyLikes Page so that everyone can see the sites that you like and promote. Another way to keep publishers honest. This page allows you to embed a code on your site promoting your likes even further increasing your money making potential. The following shows you my first ever like.

The reason for picking Prova is because I found them to be quite unique. If you need someone to design anything including banners, car door magnets, billboards and even your own commercial. In their own words;

Getting a powerful ad designed at Prova is easy. We help you launch a contest to get the best design that meets your needs. Experienced designers from around the world will submit their unique designs to your contest to compete for the best possible design. Simply tell us what you want & pick the price you’re willing to pay.

The last point is very important as it means that you can never blow your budget. You pick how much you want to spend and that’s the maximum it will cost you.

As you know you can expect an update at a later date to see how mylikes is performing, but I honestly feel it is such a great deal that you should join me on this money making journey now rather than losing out on some earnings while waiting for my next update.

To those of you who have been emailing me for an update on my Sponsored Tweet post, where I show you how your Tweets can earn you money, I’m saving that for my next post :wink_ee:
