How Would You Like To Win An Apple iPad?

You may well remember the post where I gave MyLikes The Thumbs Up, well it seems that it’s time for a followup post because things are stirring in the world of MyLikes. That post explained how easy it was to make money with MyLikes but it seems that I wasn’t using it to it’s full potential. You see, I was only relying on the money that I could earn by tweeting a link, but as we all know the amount of people who see any particular tweet is limited to those of your followers who are online at the time.

Since then I’ve decided to put a small code in my sidebar, one that is adjustable so that it can fit most themes, which will display my latest MyLikes thereby increasing it’s exposure and consequently their earning potential.

I also found that I got paid for my first referral, a whole $4, which proves that they are true to their word. Although other people may have signed up using my link I didn’t get paid because they did not fulfill all the following requirements.

Detailed Rules: We only payout for influencers who satisfy the following conditions:

  • They must be from the United States, Great Britian, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia or Canada.
  • The number of Twitter followers must be more than the number of people they are following.
  • Their Twitter account must be at least 120 days old.
  • They complete the influencer profile on MyLikes.
  • They create at least one Sponsored Like on MyLikes.
  • Referral bonus reversed if the Influencer is found to be spam/fake twitter account.

The last two months they’ve been giving away an Apple iPad to whoever signed up the most influencers, and silly me never tried for it. Truth be told I don’t really have the time, but perhaps one of you have. Why not give it a shot, especially as how it’s absolutely free to join. Let’s not also forget the potential for adding to your income stream which is a nice little bonus.

Just so you know the team behind MyLikes arn’t your normal backyard newbie who don’t know what they’re doing. The dynamic trio consists of Bindu Reddy;

Before starting MyLikes, Bindu was a Google Apps product lead and was in-charge of various Google products including Blogger, Google Docs, Video and Shopping. Previously at Google, Bindu created Google Base and spearheaded the introduction of Quality Score into the AdWords bidding system. Previous to Google, Bindu was the Director of Product Management at Elance. She has a master’s degree from Dartmouth and an B.Tech degree from IIT, Mumbai.

Arvind Sandararajan;

Before starting MyLikes, Arvind was most recently in-charge of Google AdSense engineering. Previously at Google, Arvind led engineering teams for Gmail and Google Base. He was one of the very few people who received not one, but two prestigious Founders awards for his work on AdSense and Gmail. Previous to Google, Arvind held key engineering roles in BEA and Marimba. Arvind has a M.S. in Computer Science from Stanford and an B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT Mumbai.

And last but not least, David Scacco;

Before joining MyLikes, David was an active angel investor and startup advisor. He worked at Google From 2000 – 2007 and holds the distinction of being the company’s first advertising sales executive. In his role as Director of the Vertical Markets Group David was responsible for building and managing an all-star team, which provided marketers with industry specific expertise. He and his team built successful advertising partnerships with many of the world’s best known brands and advertising agencies, as well as some of the fastest growing medium-sized companies. He also won a Google Founders award. Previous to Google he was a Director of Business Development at Ziff-Davis Media and Vice President of Marketing at Express Direct. He has a B.S. from Northern Illinois University.

Pretty impressive qualifications if you ask me, and with that sort of background you would expect MyLikes to grow as time goes on and as everybody knows, it’s best to hop on early if you want to get the best ride. If you haven’t joined yet it’s not too late to get in on the action.

Giving MyLikes The Thumbs Up

Seeing how it’s been a little over a month since my post on mylikes I thought it was about time I did an update.  The post that introduced my readers to a way to monetize Twitter was titled How The Things I Like Can Make Me Money, explained how it all worked.that post included a widget that could be used in your sidebar thereby allowing more exposure to your ‘likes’ which would in turn increase your potential for earning money.

Even though I haven’t made proper use of the widget by placing it in the sidebar I still managed to earn $12 in the short time I’ve been using mylikes, and I haven’t even been tweeting my ‘likes’ every day. Those that I have tweeted, a grand total of 24, means that I was earning about 50 cents a tweet. Considering I’ve only got about 500 followers I reckon that’s pretty good.

I know that some people will not join because they are afraid that their followers may see these ‘sponsored’ tweets as a form of spam, and to those people I assure you as long as you only tweet products or services that you feel could be of value to your followers I don’t think you will have a problem.

Something else you should consider is that you can only tweet a mylikes offer once a day and if you’re someone who tweets a lot I doubt very much that anyone will hold one tweet against you. That plus the fact that all tweets will have a ‘#ad’ tag alongside it showing your followers that the tweet is actually an ad, and if they click on it then they must have an interest in what is being offered.

One last thing, I can safely say that since using mylikes I’m pretty sure I haven’t lost a follower, and so I give mylikes the thumbs up. :thumbup_tb:
