The Gmail Dot Trick

Posted By Tony on August 10th, 2009

gmailMost of you avid GPTers probably already know of the Gmail trick that improves your offer approval ratings, but for those that don’t, it’s time to shine the light on this age old method. This method allows users to reuse the same email address for multiple offers.

To accomplish this, all you need to do is create a new Gmail account with a relatively long username. The reason that you would want a fairly long username is because this will allow you to generate more combinations with the dot trick.

For example, if I had the email address: Cybercashcows@gmail.com

Then I would be able to use:

Cybercashcow.s@gmail.com

Cybercashco.w.s@gmail.com

Cyber.cash.cows@gmail.com

ect.

All of these will map to your same gmail account, but offers will recognize each of them as an unique account. This allows you to get a lot more use with each account, rather than having to constantly create new unique gmail accounts.

Hopefully this information will improve your ability to make money online!

On another note, Cyber Cash Cows is coming to its 1 month anniversary, and I am currently planning some sort of promotion for this event. But right now, we still have a couple days before that day comes, so I would like to turn my attention to the readers. What do you want me to write about? Is there something that you’ve been wanting to learn more about, but never had the opportunity? Please leave a comment or feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding the GPT industry or any questions with making money online in general!

Stop Doing Brandarama Offers!

Posted By Tony on August 3rd, 2009

Brand

Brandarama has declared bankruptcy and declared that it will not be able to pay for the offers completed during June/July. Some of the affiliate partners have speculated in honoring these payments, but right now this cannot be confirmed. So if you have any pending Brandarama offers, chances are that you won’t be getting credit for them and GPT sites should begin pulling them from their sites. If they are still available make sure to avoid completing them, since you’d be wasting your time and energy.

Cashcrate Offers New Payment Method

Posted By Tony on July 31st, 2009

Cashcrate has always been a leading competitor in the GPT industry. And it has always prided itself in being very fair with it’s customer as well as providing the utmost in customer service. I’ve been a member for quite a while, but the one thing that turned me off from doing more with my member ship was it’s payment types. At the time, Cashcrate only offered check as its payment method, but today, Cashcrate announced that it will be adding direct deposit as a payment method. Here’s the full post:

We’re adding Direct Deposit as a new payment method that will be available to Silver+ members starting on Monday. This is a great way to get paid faster–rather than waiting for a check to arrive, you can choose to have your CashCrate payment deposited directly into your bank account!

Starting on Monday, all US members with a referral level of Silver and higher will be able to select the new payment method under ‘My Account’. Simply enter your Direct Deposit information through our secure server and your payment will be processed this way automatically starting in August. This includes earnings for July, so you’ll have about one week to make sure your information is entered and up-to-date. Enjoy!

This is great news! Now you won’t have to deal with cashing checks in every month and it allows those living in multiple locales, such as myself, easier access to our money. The prospect of reaching Silver member (50+ Referrals) might seem daunting at first, but let me be the first to iterate that when you get down to it, it really isn’t that hard to increase your referrals. If there’s enough interest I would be happy to write a post on the subject that netted me over 2000 referrals on one of my GPT sites.

The Importance of Picking the Right GPT

Posted By Tony on July 30th, 2009

Picking the right GPT program is the most important thing you can do in order to succeed in the GPT market. While you’ll still be making money on offers that you complete at a sub-par site, the amount of energy and time you spend on that site could easily be utilized somewhere else and the returns exponential. This is a lesson that I have personally learned from my experience in marketing the GPT site–Moola.

Moola TowerNow, Moola does have a lot of things going for it, since it is one of the first sites of its type. Moola gives it’s users 1 cent and then the user can play a host of games against other users where they can risk a certain amount of money in their balance in an effort to double up their money. If you ever run out of money, Moola simply gives you another cent so you can continue on your Moola adventures. A stunning UI and interactive games draw users in, but unfortunately Moola’s team drops the ball when it comes to support and payout.

When Moola first started out, they only offered cash checkouts, and you would receive your payment in a timely manner usually spanning less than a month. But as word of the site grew Moola had more on its plate than it could handle. Cashouts began to be delayed for weeks on end, but there seemed to be light at the end of the tunnel when they added PayPal as a payment type.  Cashout times once again decreased to the joy of its users. Since then, this problem has resurfaced once again with cashout times taking over 22 weeks! That’s almost half a year! To counteract this, Moola has introduced another payment method–Visa PrePaid Upside Card. The Upside card is basically a prepaid debit card that Moola uses to send its funds to users. They are now promising “drastic” decreases in cashout time, but I’m at a point where I’m not even sure what that means. Are they telling the truth this time? Or are they just trying their best to appease the masses for another period of time. Either way, there are still thousands of users that participate on Moola. Why is this? Well, like I said earlier, Moola has a great game system, but their own growth is stymied by their inability to provide decent cashout times and customer support.

Moola RefAnother key attribute that I look at when choosing the “right” GPT program is their referral network. Once again, lets take a look at Moola’s.  They offers 4 levels of referrals. Now at first this may seem pretty impressive, but when you realize you’re only getting 4%, 3%, 2%, and 1% of what your referrals make you tend to get a little disheartened. With other GPT sites offering 20-40% of what your referrals earn the messily 4% pales in comparison. I began promoting Moola sometime last summer and as you can see, I’d say I’ve done fairly well in that retrospect, but due to Moola’s low referral rewards, I’ve only managed to make hundreds instead of thousands if the same referrals were applied to a different site.

Well that’s all for today folks. Hopefully that will enlighten you on the matter of choosing the right GPT site for you!
