You’ve seen everyone hyping them, and probably gotten all kinds of spam about 'em, right? Have you tried any? I’ve used AllAdvantage, but the only two others that I know of that actually have their product available kinda suck! Spedia tends to crash, ProfitZone sits in the MIDDLE of my screen (ack!) etc. I never get around to actually USING the GoToWorld browser, since I like Netscape.
The rest are all still “being developed” and aren’t ready for download yet. One of them says in their FAQ that they plan to release “Summer of 1999”… I emailed them saying that it was already PAST summer, and I got back a form letter that said they planned to release it “September 1999”… (this was just a few days ago).
My husband doesn’t see how these programs can survive, and wonders how many will fold in the first 6 months. Me, I’m wondering how many will fold before they ever actually start anything!
So what do you think… is this a fad that will blow over? Is it a scam? Obviously AllAdvantage is the leader, the most popular, or whatever (and in all honesty, I think it rocks… I made $43 last month, and so far this month I’m up to $41 and it’s only the 10th…though I haven’t actually gotten a check yet) but how long can even it last? Are the advertizing dollars REALLY OUT THERE to make this work in the long run??
Note: if you don’t know what I’m talking about, there are programs that pay you something like $.50/hr or a small percentage of ad revenue to put a small ad banner on your desktop and flash ads at you while you surf. I have a page of links to them, since it can’t hurt, right? but I do wonder if it is all really gonna pan out. If you want to see what I mean, it’s at opalcat.com/getpaid.html [and yes, if you click on the links there, they do all have referral IDs/names or whatever. This is not an ad though, so please don’t get mad]
So, oh wise teeming millions, is it Free Money, or is it a Pile of Crap?
