Make Money sharing your photos on Shareapic

Do you know you can make money by uploading your pictures to some website? Most of us upload pictures to Facebook, Myspace, Orkut, Flikr etc. These are just to share your photos with your friends and family. They won't pay you anything for uploading your pictures. Here is a great website, Shareapic, that pays you for uploading and sharing your photos.

What is Shareapic?
Shareapic is a free service that allows its users to upload and host their images on its servers. Shareapic has a unique revenue sharing model that compensates users for directing their friends and family to see their hosted images which makes it different from the rest. When a member hosts a gallery, they can then show this gallery to others. Each time this is done, the member is paid.

Shareapic does not condone the use of its service for adult content. It does not condone the use of its service for the posting of copyrighted content. Any user who does not abide by these rules will be banned, have their accounts deleted and remaining payments removed.

How to earn with Shareapic?

There are 3 ways one can earn money with Shareapic.

  1. Image Views: An image view is when a user clicks on an image to be seen. Shareapic pays $0.22 per 1000 image views. The number of image views is tallied on a daily basis by unique users. For instance, if you have an image and it is clicked on ten times by the same users it will only be calculated as one image view for that day. Although, if the same user views that image another day it will total two image views. 
  2. Bidvertiser Ad Code: This is a cool option that Shareapic offers for its users. You can place bidvertiser ad code to your images. When a user clicks on the bidvertiser ad, you will be paid. 
  3. Referring others: If you own a website or a blog, you can promote your Shareapic galleries and invite your readers to join Shareapic. Each time you refer a user, you will earn 10% of their image views forever.

Shareapic offers link codes of your pictures. So you can post your pictures' links to Facebook, Myspace, Blogger, Orkut and more.

How much can you earn?
Earnings vary each month based off the amount of income Shareapic generates from advertising. Once this number is finalized a percentage of that is distributed throughout Shareapic members depending on how many image views they have accrued. Currently they are paying $0.22 for 1000 image views.

For example, if in month one Shareapic calculates to distribute $1,000 to its members, it will first tally up the total number of image views for that month. Using these two numbers they can determine the respective payouts for each user. If there were a total of 500,000 image views for the month, image views will equate to $0.002 each (1,000 divided by 500,000), or $2 per 1000 image views. If you're posting lots of pics in forums, MySpace or eBay, you can see how easy it is to earn quite a bit of money!

How does Shareapic pay?
Currently, all payments are sent via PayPal or various gift card methods Shareapic offers (these are listed on the front page of the site and given as options when you request a payment.)

When does Shareapic pay?
Shareapic pays out within 30 calendar days as long as your account balance is over $20.00. One of its main goals is to keep a consistent payment schedule and pay out users as fast as possible.

Register today at Shareapic and start earning.

Make Money with Google Adsense

I talked about starting a blog in my previous post. After you successfully set up your blog and posting regulary, you can now start thinking about making money through your blog.

I'll introduce you in this post how you can make money with Google Adsense.

Google Adsense:
Google Adsense is one of the most popular forms of advertising on websites/blogs. Google AdSense is a fast and easy way for website/blog publishers to earn some money by displaying targeted google ads on their websites/blogs. Google AdSense automatically matches the best possible advertisements with your blog content which makes the ads relevant to your content. You'll be credited when your site/blog users click on the ads on your pages. In order for Google Adsense to work better for your blog, you need to have rich content and good traffic.

How to start?
1. Go to Google Adsense page
2. Please read Google adsense program policies before applying for an adsense account.
3. Fill the application form given.
4. Google takes some time to evaluate and follow-up with you through an email.
5. If you are accepted, login to your account and generate adsense code for your website/blog.
6. You can select the code from many different layouts.
7. Paste the code into your website at the appropriate places.
8. You will be given a unique adsense publisher id. Keep it safe as Google may ask your id at some point of time later in the future.

Payments are generally monthly by either check or electronic funds transfer. You'll be paid when your earnings reach $100.

Important Note: Do not click on your own ads. if you do so your adsense account will be disabled and all your earnings will be gone.

Keep in mind that these programs may or may not work for everyone. Don't expect to get rich quick with blogging. You need to put a lot of work in the initial stages of your blogging as it makes it easy for you later. Lot of people quit blogging after doing it for sometime thinking that they are not making any income. It takes some time to earn good money. So, don't give up.

I'll let you know other methods as we go on...
Happy blogging :)

Make Money with Pay Per Click programs

Pay-Per-Click(PPC) or Paid-To-Click(PTC):
Pay-Per-Click(PPC) or Paid-To-Click(PTC) is an internet advertising model which is used on many websites. The advertisers pay these websites only when their ad(s) is/are clicked. So, these webistes which host the advertisements of the advertisers pay the users who join their website and click on their advertiser's ads. These websites display ads in many formats like text links, banner ads etc.

I'm not going into full details(like how these programs find advertisers etc) of PPC marketing as you don't need all of that information to earn money using PPC programs. Refer for full details.

As a user who wants to earn money using PPC programs, all you have to do is follow the steps below.

1. There are lots of PPC/PTC programs on the internet. Select one to start with.
2. Register to the PPC program.
3. Click the ads that are displayed to you(You must click only one ad at a time) and view a webiste for a certain amount of time(mostly 30 secs to 1 minute).
4. You will be paid for each ad you viewed.
5. As a free user, you will be given only a few ads to click. If you want more ads to click, you need to upgrade your membership to premium which costs you some money. As you are here to earn money and if you are willing to invest some, you can always start with a free membership. Wait until you get some money and then upgrade your membership if you want.
6. Be patient as it takes some time to increase your earnings with PPC programs.

Note: Not all PPC programs pay you the same amount to click on ads. The amount varies from program to program.
