Quest to Earn Money Online - Bubblews
What Is Bubblews?
Bubblews is a social money sharing site that has users make posts that are at least 400 characters long. These posts can be about anything, news, personal posts, reviews, how-to articles, whatever you feel like writing about. With each unique view, like, comment or social network share, you earn $0.01, shared 50/50 with the website, and new users start with $1 in their account. Once you reach $25, you can redeem your earnings and have it sent to your paypal account.
While the rules of Bubblew are very easy to follow, you must keep in mind that if you don't follow them you are at risk of not receiving your payout.
1. Do not submit content you didn't write yourself.
2. Abusing the likes/views/comment system by partaking in exchange groups and requesting for them through other Bubblews’ members.
3. Utilizing Traffic Exchange, Bots, Proxies, Virtual Private Network and other forms of IP manipulation is stealing from Bubblews.
4. Submitting posts that only contain pictures and/or containing very limited text is prohibited as this is not content our advertisers like to pay for.
5. Posting Pornographic/semi-pornographic images and/or content to Bubblews.
6. Posting LESS THAN 400 characters per post.
7. Posting material not written in English (Only exception is if you supplement your post with an English translation).
8. Posting links within your bubbles to cite/source/enhance your work is fine, but please do not post Referral or Affiliate links to other websites. Use your best discretion and if you are unsure please email in.
9. Do not post more than 10 posts in 24 hours. This is a rule to prevent spamming.
These rules are very easy to follow and as long as you follow them you shouldn't have any problems at Bubblews.
Joining Bubblews was actually a very simple process of creating a user name, password and entering you email address and you are pretty much ready to go. Once you are logged in you are ready to start interacting with the Bubblews community.
To get started I read a few posts to kind of get the feel of what was expected in posts and what kind of things people wrote about. People wrote about everything from personal posts about what happened that day, about their pets, or informative articles about health or reviews. You could literally write about anything you wanted, as long as it followed the rules of the site.
I wrote my first three posts relatively quickly after joining, and to my surprise got almost instant responses from the community. Only a minute or two after posting I would have notifications that so and so liked my post, or so and so commented. A couple people even connected with me, which is basically "following" someone's posts.
Since it is such a social site, the more you connect with people, view and comment on other people's posts, the more people tend to go to your profile and check out your posts as well. It seems it very much relies on how social you are with people to encourage more people to see your posts. Of course it also depend on how many posts you are putting out, as most sites that make money off of page views do. Of course the more posts you have the more chances you have in a post your wrote being viewed. Just keep the rules in mind when you are posting otherwise you wont get paid for your efforts.
I did a lot of research on the site before joining. I looked up to see about how much people were earning how quickly and now after experiencing the community I very much plan to continue trying to use the site and hoping that it will help me meet my monthly earning goal online ($100 or more a month). So far its a fun and easy way to earn money online just because you can write about whatever you feel like, and you see seemingly instant results back from the community - for the most part. I definitely recommend this site to anyone looking to make a little extra money online, especially if you love to write.
While I have seen many pictures of successful payouts and heard from many happy users I have also noticed something that has come up in my research more than once. It seems that some users, after redeeming their payout, do not receive their pay out. Given, I am not sure if they have all followed the rules and perhaps that is why they are not receiving them or if there is some other glitch in the system.
I have also seen reports where people get redeemed within a day or two and others are waiting a few weeks. It seems no one has an exact answer as to why this happens but I thought I would put a little note of warning that this has happened to a few people often enough that it has come up a few times in my research of the site.
Do you have a Bubblews?
So I joined Bubblews yesterday afternoon and currently have posted 6 posts. Right now I have 6 people connected with me and have actually so far enjoyed my experience on the site. The community is very friendly so far and I plan on continuing writing for them as of now. The picture to the right is a screen cap of my bank as a proof of what I have earned and posted so far. Nothing too crazy yet, but we'll see!
Keep in mind that I technically have only earned $1.11 as Bubblews gives new users $1 in their bank to start with. But I find $1.11 the first day off of 6 posts that didn't really take me very long to write not bad at all. That adds up to about $0.18 a post, however I have heard from other users that once you have a wider following you generally can easily make at the very least $0.25 initially, and even more if you write a particularly popular post. This, of course, is just initially and you continue to earn off of your post after the first day.
I have to admit, I have only submitted maybe 5 more posts since the last time I updated but I am trying to be more active on it as I seem to notice you earn more on newer posts as opposed to older posts, just from being up on the news feed. I feel that I am earning slightly more per post than I was before, but I'm still working on building up amount of posts and people who are connected to me. I feel if I stuck to writing 10 posts a day I would have quite a bit more on my earning by now.
I have not been very active recently and when I have been active I have only posted a couple posts at a time. But I am pleased to say that my earnings have in fact increased a bit despite being not really posting much.
With how little I have actually had time to post recently I am actually quite pleased with this number. Given there are many people who get far more views/likes than I do as most of my posts are personal but considering, I feel like I am not doing bad, especially since it's been more than a week since I've last posted.
Update 8/29/2013 Early Morning
I did it! I made it to $25 finally. Once I got a little more active in the community and started being more consistent and active with posting almost every day, I started to earn more!
