Get Paid to Share on Social Networks
I read an article on Mashable today about how you can earn money by sharing ads on your social networks.
Wingsplay, a start-up that launched last month, that pays its users to share video ads on their social networks. The distribution model is key; it relies heavily on connected social networks. The founder, Olivier Lasry, says the best way for online advertisements to resonate with people is if a link has been recommended by a friend or social media connection.
You don’t have to like or follow an advertiser for their ads to make it into your feed. They can trickle in from a friend who is signed up to Wingsplay and is trying to make some extra cash from their social networks.
Users on Wingsplay can earn money by sharing up to four video ads per week, Users are paid by cost of view. Wingsplay say the service is not meant to be used to spam social media, but more to drive connections `
“The Web made it almost impossible to reach people with boring ads,” Lasry said. “People don’t care about advertisers who interrupt them. But the opportunity is huge for remarkable video ads, which people actually want to watch and share.”
Wingsplay’s Lasry says that financial incentive is not enough for a person to share a video. He said they actually like the videos they share
“26% of our influencers shared the first videos we distributed on Wingsplay, which shows that influencers only share videos they like, and that the monetary incentive is only part of the experience,” Lasry said.
I signed up to Wingsplay today just to see what it was all about. I recieved a mail saying that my account had been activated and that I will soon be able to participate in their beta launch. I will be interested to see what type od video ads they will want shared.
I will keep you posted
