Tagvillage are starting 2013 with a bang. Up to now they have struggled along with lack of capital trying to build an ad platform. Now with the platform in Alpha and Beta testing giving advertisers free advertising all is moving forward. But that is a sidenote.
Tagvillage have come up with a solution to rid all the early fraud that was entered into the system and reward members at the same time. In fact the overall solution is nothing short of genius with every member getting a benefit worth more than they ever put into the company.
So here is the basics
- 2011 Tag guru prizes were paid out in January 2013 (50% payment of remaining balance owed).
- 2012 Tag Guru prizes announced 15Jan13 and paid on 20Jan13.
- On 25th of March a snapshot of members accounts will be taken recording the tag value.
- On April 1st 2013 Members will receive two types of credits. TagTrading Credits will be all the cash deposits the member has made less the withdrawals the member has taken. The second type will be Bonus Tagtrading Credits which will be equal to 20% of your tag value as recorded on 25th of March.
- On April 1st 2013 Tag Trading will resume with all tags reset. Members will have had all tags removed from their accounts already. Tags will have a starting price of $1.
Affiliate Compensation Plan Overhaul
The compensation plan has also changed to better suit the business model and reward members appropriately. Details of the changes as published in the news areas follows;
- Eliminate the Activity Points and Daily Profit Share system entirely
This system was originally designed to reward members for conducting activity within our social network. It is not valid any longer and the funds could be better used to attract publishers and advertisers so our members will earn more from advertising commissions.
- 1.00 Starting Tag Value
All Tags will start at 1.00 Credits instead of 0.10
- 40% Tag Price Increase Per Trade
Tags will increase in price by 40% instead of 30%
- Tag Seller Earns 82% of Retail Price
When you sell a Tag you will earn 82% of the Retail Price, not 115% of the cost. This allows members to earn slightly better profits when they sell Tags.
- Multi-Level Referral Commissions (TagTrading)
- If your referral BUYS a Tag, you will earn 3% of the retail price.
- If your referral’s referral BUYS a Tag, you will earn 2% of the retail price.
- If your referral’s referral’s referral BUYS a Tag, you will earn 2% of the retail price.
- 10% Targeted Tag Advertising Commission
If you own a Tag that is targeted by an advertiser, you will be paid 10% of the amount paid by the advertiser.
- Multi-Level Referral Commissions (Advertising)
- If your referral owns a Tag that is targeted by an advertiser, you will earn 3% of the amount paid by the advertiser.
- If your referral’s referral owns a Tag that is targeted by an advertiser, you will earn 2% of the amount paid by the advertiser.
- If your referral’s referral’s referral owns a Tag that is targeted by an advertiser, you will earn2% of the amount paid by the advertiser.
- Millionaires Club
We will not be paying 5% referral commissions for advertiser or publisher referrals. Therefore, we will amend the Millionaires Club to reflect the new multi-level plan. Under the new plan, the ONLY valuable referrals will be active TagTraders. Therefore, we will distribute only active house referrals that are actively trading Tags. The number of referrals you will receive will not change, but they will be active TagTraders. In this way, you are ensured commissions.
Founders Profit Sharing Pool
This will not be modified at all. This pool is 100% based on actual advertising revenue, therefore, once we begin earning advertising revenue, we will distribute shares to this pool as originally planned.
What does this all mean for the average member? Well I made a video up which goes through and tells you.
From now until March 25th, 2013, the name of the game is simple. Every single member should be focused entirely on building the maximum value for their Tag inventory. This is also an EXCELLENT time to be getting and training referrals. All new members can join now, build tag value, and get 100% of their investment plus 20% of their inventory value back on April 1st. That is a guaranteed 120% return on investment in 90 days!
In the famous words of the late night advertisements;
BUT WAIT THAT’S NOT ALL
Tagvillage needed to ensure they continue to get a stream of income despite having given members a great amount of bonuses with prize payouts. So they came up with a fantastic incentive to deposit during January. Instead of getting 20% bonus credits they have a tiered rate to be able to increase that up to 100%of their March 25th Tag Resale Value.
|CREDITS PURCHASED IN JANUARY||BONUS RATE|
|125.00 – 249.99||21% of Tag Inventory Resale Value|
|250.00 – 499.99||23% of Tag Inventory Resale Value|
|500.00 – 999.99||29% of Tag Inventory Resale Value|
|1,000.00 – 1,999.99||47% of Tag Inventory Resale Value|
|2,000.00 +||100% of Tag Inventory Resale Value|
This is a great time for tagvillage and it’s members, new and old alike.
New Members Big Winners
People always look at what the benefit of joining a program is. The new changes have made tagvillage a much more attractive option for new members. Three levels of referral and targetted tag advertising commissions as well as retail commissions. The compensation is more rewarding than ever. During the pre-launch period members can deposit money and get up to 100% return on April 1st. This makes it a no risk opportunity as all the deposits are returned into their account on that date. They will also get their bonus credits.
The smart option would be to deposit $2000 and use it all to buy tags. At a minimum that will give 2300 tag value meaning $2000 in tag trading credits plus 2300 bonus credits. That is a fantastic return on investment.

Launching the Ad Platform
Exciting times are just ahead for all of us here at tagvillage. On Monday, December 17, 2012, we fully intend to launch the basic, core package of our Advertising Platform. While this long-awaited event signals the end of a tiresome pre-launch development journey, it also signals the beginning of a much longer and more difficult one. Once the core platform is live, we will immediately shift into simultaneous stages of support, product enhancement, platform growth, and marketing. Of utmost importance is that our members maintain the proper expectations.
If all goes according to plan, as of December 17, advertisers will have full capability to build ads, find relevant positions using Tags, and bid on these positions. Publishers will have the capability to embed our ad widget code into their webpages, approve or decline ads bidding for their positions, and display winning advertisements. The basic, core components of an advertising distribution system will be in place and functional. Yet, we expect the initial usage to be low, with a relatively small number of publishers and advertisers participating.
We want to stress heavily, this will be a very basic core system. Initially, advertisers will only be able to build text ads. We will implement image and rich media advertising at a later stage. Initially, advertisers will bid on individual positions using individual Tags. We will implement the ability to bid on multiple positions & Tags (run of network) at a later stage. Initially, we will only track and report pageviews and click-throughs. Later we will implement unique user counts, enhanced demographics, and other statistics.
There are several major advertising networks already in existence. Many of them have been building and developing their products greater than ten years. In some cases, we are more than 18 years behind. There are ad construction and delivery technologies, statistical tracking mechanisms, databases, anti-fraud and security measures, and many other advancements that are simply beyond our current financial or technical resources. Like our competitors, it will take time and money to develop and implement certain levels of technology in our systems. Our goal is to build and deliver the absolute best product we possibly can, with the resources at our current disposal.
Due to our relatively infant stage realities, and due to our current financial and staffing constraints, our plan is to develop, release, and enhance our advertising product slowly and steadily over a long period of time. We truly hope that publishers, advertisers, and TagTraders will see and appreciate the direction we are moving and will bear with us as we build the technology and tools to get us all to the final vision.
We are at a point in our product development cycle where we feel the basic components are complete enough to release to a live platform. However, we do not feel they are complete enough to fully satisfy their obligations. Therefore, we have decided to roll our product out in 3 primary stages:
- Alpha Launch (pre-beta live testing)
- Beta Launch (beta stage live testing)
- Continuous Enhancement (fully-functional but undergoing continuous improvement)
ALPHA LAUNCH STAGE
On Monday, December 17, 2012, our plan is to enter our Alpha Launch Stage. We plan to release the core components of our Advertising Platform during this stage for testing and debugging. During this stage, publishers will be able to embed our ad widget code into their sites so that advertisements may display within the widgets. Advertisers will be able to search for relevant positions using Tags and bid on these positions. We will display the ads of winning bidders.
It is very important to note, this Alpha Launch Stage will be a testing and debugging stage. Therefore, we will NOT pay publisher or TagTrader commissions during this stage. Also, we will NOT charge advertisers for their winning bids during this stage. This stage is purely for testing and debugging in a live environment and will not conduct actual cash transactions. We expect this stage to last until February 1, 2013.
Essentially we are saying that advertisers can get FREE ADVERTISING throughout the tagvillage publisher network until February 1, 2013. We plan to use this alpha stage opportunity to attract as many advertisers to our platform as possible. They can test our systems and learn to reach their target audience with no cash risk on their part.
However, we know this creates an important question. What about publishers? How do we expect to get publishers to participate? We understand the reason web publishers embed advertising widgets into their pages is to monetize their sites. Therefore, we have a plan to compensate them for helping us with this alpha test. For every day a publisher has our widget code live on their pages during the alpha stage, we will award them double commissions for the same number of days once we enter the Beta Launch Stage. We feel this is a very attractive offer. Publishers can help us attract TONS of advertisers with FREE ADVERTISING during the alpha stage and then earn DOUBLE COMMISSION for a certain time when we start paying them.
BETA LAUNCH STAGE
Our goal is to enter our Beta Launch Stage on February 1, 2013, but this date could change depending on alpha stage results. During the beta stage, we will continue to debug and enhance our platform. We intend to add deeper reporting features, better tracking mechanisms, and to enhance anti-cheating and anti-fraud systems. We also intend to begin delivering TagTrader commissions and publisher commissions during this stage. This means TagTraders and publishers will be earning revenue from ads delivered throughout our network. However, we will still NOT be charging advertisers for their bids!
Yes, you read that correct. We plan to pay publishers and TagTraders the commissions they would have earned, had advertisers actually paid for their bids. However, we intend to still allow advertisers to run ads COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE during our Beta Launch Stage. This means more FREE ADVERTISING. We truly hope this will continue to help us attract more and more advertisers to the system.
During the Beta Launch Stage publishers will earn DOUBLE COMMISSION for the number of days during which they participated in the Alpha Launch Stage. So, if a publisher participates in our alpha testing for 30 days, they will receive DOUBLE COMMISSION for 30 days during the beta testing stage. TagTraders will earn normal advertising commissions on their Tags from the beginning of the Beta Launch onward. We plan for the Beta Launch Stage to last until March 1, 2013, but this date could change depending on results.
It is important to note there will NOT be a monthly withdrawal limit for publisher earnings. Withdrawal limits are only designed for the TagTrader platform. Therefore, publishers will be able to withdraw their entire earnings from the get-go. As advertising revenues increase and TagTrading activity increases, we will remove the monthly withdrawal limits for TagTraders as well. Our goal is to transition to a fully-open earnings and withdrawals environment for all members.
CONTINUOUS ENHANCEMENT STAGE
After the Beta Launch Stage is complete, we intend to enter a long-term period of continuous product enhancement and support. During this time we will roll out an ever increasing array of upgrades to our technology, database, reporting, tracking, ad creation and delivery, and many other aspects of our platform. We plan for this to be a never-ending process. As we receive feedback from publishers, advertisers, and other industry professionals we will make modifications to deliver a better product. As we review data and usage statistics, we will make enhancements to our systems.
During the Continuous Enhancement Stage advertisers will be paying for their advertisements throughout our network, publishers and TagTraders will be earning advertising commissions, and causes will be receiving donations equal to at least 10% of the revenue generated by our advertising platform. The entire system will be functioning as one cohesive organism. This is the point where tagvillage will be a complete, production stage company. At this stage we will also have full-scale marketing and sales efforts alongside our development and support. We expect to be in this stage of operations for more than 10 years.
A UNIQUE PLATFORM
At this point, we feel it is important to explain some important details about our upcoming Advertising Platform. We have been stating for some time that tagvillage will NOT be a Cost per Click (CPC), Cost per Action (CPA), or Cost per Thousand (CPM) network. However, we haven’t told you our secret. It is now time to reveal the type of network we are developing.
Our opinion is the future of online and mobile advertising lies in ‘Branding’. We do not feel impulse response (CPC) or other antiquated search-based models will continue to deliver viable advertising opportunities for the long-term future. In 2013, online display advertising will generate more revenue than search-based advertising for the first time in history. Why? Because, display advertising is currently the ONLY method to achieve ‘Branding’ online.
In the simplest form, brand advertising is the art of delivering the exact same message to the exact same intended audience over a long period of time. This is possible through some online display advertising channels. However, avenues for branding are quite limited. Some of the best brand advertising opportunities available in today’s market are high volume pages, such as the Yahoo homepage or the Facebook exit page. The trouble is, only a select few businesses can afford these placements. Online brand advertising is simply not viable for average, local or regional businesses. That is, until now.
We believe there are millions of websites in existence that have consistent traffic that is made up of a similar group of people. There are millions of hobby sites, information sites, and other niche websites that attract and retain visitors due to a specific topic or activity. Many of these sites struggle to generate meaningful ad sales revenue because they must either manually sell and deliver ads themselves, or rely on automated search-based systems that produce less than desired results. There simply is not a dependable framework to fairly ‘automate’ a brand advertising (or display) system for small and mid-size websites.
One of the key components to brand advertising is consistency. In order to effectively build a brand, businesses must deliver the exact same message to the exact same audience over a long period of time. This is impossible with search based ad networks. Why? Because, when you place an ad in a search based network, it is delivered randomly throughout many locations based upon keyword matching and traffic demand algorithms. In other words, your ad is randomly distributed in too many places. Search based networks simply cannot ensure the same sets of eyes are seeing your ad every day.
Although many websites have a similar audience demographic, and therefore the ability to deliver a reasonable ‘branding’ opportunity for advertisers, they face many hurdles. To sell and deliver their own advertising content requires them to employ ad sales representatives and build advertising content management systems. They must seek out their advertisers and conduct a high level of manual ‘labor’ to deliver these ads. For the most part, the revenue is not worth the effort.
We have designed a better networking solution for publishers and advertisers. While search-based advertising systems cannot effectively deliver branding opportunities, they do one thing very well. Because they are keyword oriented, they match advertisers with publishers effectively. We realized this key advantage and borrowed from it when designing our system. Through Tags, we will allow advertisers to discover branding opportunities and publishers to discover potential advertisers. In this manner both advertisers and publishers can find each other. We can fairly ‘automate’ the matchmaking process.
However, matchmaking is only part of the process when it comes to brand advertising. The next component is for the advertiser to have the ability to deliver the same message to the same intended audience for a long period of time. So how is this possible with tagvillage? Simple, we will deliver ads based upon a Cost per Time (CPT) basis.
With the tagvillage Advertising Platform, advertisers can find publishers who have sites that attract their intended audience. They can then bid for the opportunity to place their ads in front of this audience for a certain amount of TIME. They are not randomly shot-gunned to millions of different sites and audiences. They are not buying a limited number of impressions and hoping the right audience happens to see their ad. Instead, they are establishing a time-based position in the middle of content that is attracting their intended audience. They can accomplish true branding.
When we first launch our platform, advertisers will bid on positions in 24 hour increments. All ads will be delivered for a minimum of 24 hours at a time per position. Later we will implement more advanced time management and time predictive systems. Our goal is to make online advertising begin to act like traditional television and radio advertising and other standard media platforms. We intend to develop the system that allows publishers to choose exactly WHEN and WHERE to place their ad, so the right audience receives their message consistently.
The Internet is a mature media. Millions of websites exist with established content and viewers. These sites deserve the opportunity to deliver ads based upon their true value: their audience. Many advertisers place ads in certain issues of magazines because they know the exact intended audience will read the issue. Many advertisers place ads in certain time-slots on certain television or radio programs because they know the exact intended audience will view or hear the program.
Why don’t websites capitalize on this fact? Because, for over ten years, the only automated approach to delivering advertising effectively online was search-based keyword and content matching. Today, we have the technology and data to know who is where online, and WHEN. We have the technology to allow advertisers to choose when and where to place an ad so they reach the exact intended WHO. This is the future of online and mobile advertising.
Our core product will be live in just a few days. Everyone will be able to see that tagvillage is legitimately building an online advertising system. This is an extremely well planned, well organized platform. We have constructed millions of lines of code, volumes of data, exhaustive security and anti-cheating measures, and many other technologies. It is now time to transition from product development to product delivery and marketing. Hold on tight! This should be a fun, but sometimes bumpy ride.
As you know, one of the purposes of tagvillage is to pour out financial blessings upon our members. We strive to bless our members and the causes they support. The majority of members have already earned much more than they invested over the past 18 months. Even still, we want to make it better. After all, if it were not for the founding members of tagvillage, we would not be this close to reaching our major advertising platform milestones. We are very close now.
Get Your Share of 25% of tagvillage’s Advertising Profits for 1 Year!
As of July 1st, 2012, tagvillage is rewarding our members for their support by Get Your Share of 25% of tagvillage’s Advertising Profits for 1 Year!GIVING them a share of 25% of our advertising profits for the entire first year of sales generated from our advertising widgets. Members are not required to purchase a position in this profit sharing pool. Instead, we are GIVING positions away as a reward for doing what you already do: trading Tags and purchasing Credits.
How Do You Get Seats in the Pool?
From July 1st 2012 through July 31st 2012:
|1.||For every $10 worth of Credits you purchase before all the seats are filled, tagvillage will GIVE you one 1st Level Seat in the pool.|
|2.||For every 1st Level Seat you are given you can earn one 2nd Level Bonus Seat by purchasing 20.00 Credits worth of Tags during the same calendar month, before the earnings period begins.|
|3.||For every 2nd Level Bonus Seat you earn, you can earn one 3rd Level Bonus Seat by purchasing 100.00 Credits worth of Tags during the same calendar month, before the earnings period begins.|
If there are seats remaining after July 31st, the minimum Credits requirements and Tag purchase requirements will increase each calendar month until all 1st Level Seats are filled.
What are the Limits?
|1st Level Seats available:||5,000|
|2nd Level Bonus Seats available:||5,000|
|3rd Level Bonus Seats available:||2,500|
*NOTE: All seats are on a first-come first-served basis
Can I Keep My Credits?
Yes! You keep the Credits you purchase. You can leave them in your account balance, use them to trade Tags, or even withdraw them back out in cash. It does not cost you a single penny to get a seat in the pool. When you purchase Credits, they are yours to keep and use as you see fit. If you sell the Tags you purchased to earn bonus seats, you keep the profits when you sell them. All in all, tagvillage will reward you with your share of 25% of our ENTIRE FIRST YEAR’S ADVERTISING PROFITS just for doing what you already do: purchasing Credits and trading Tags.
How Much Can I Earn?
We will take 25% of our advertising profits each month and distribute them equally among all the seats in the profit sharing pool for 12 months. The earnings period will begin on the 1st day of the month following the release of our advertising platform (widgets). At first, sales will be small as we get the ball rolling. However, after an entire 12 months of marketing and selling our product, earnings are only limited to the success of our advertising sales.
Let’s imagine in month 11 that tagvillage has Advertising Profits of $600,000. Let’s also imagine that every single seat is filled. There would be 12,500 seats in the pool. We would deposit $150,000 into the pool ($600,000 x 25%). This means every single seat would get a FREE BONUS of $12 ($150,000 / 12,500). If a member had 100 seats, they would receive $1,200 ($12 x 100 seats) in FREE BONUS CASH, just for trading Tags in July. WOW!

When Will the List Be Published?
We will keep a running total of the seats awarded on the Founders Profit Sharing Pool – Official List page.
I have not been very vocal lately but that does not mean I have not been busy. Today Tagvillage have released very exciting news and it seems they are now very close to realizing the massive growth and commissions that have been the goal all along. While many people may have wondered why it has taken so long that does not really matter now. The fact is that Tagvillage has grown in the best way by learning as it went, and planning ahead. Now the efforts are about to pay dividends and in all honesty I do not think many actually realize how big this is going to be.
As for the most recent announcement, Tagvillage are shortly about to start contacting Advertisers an Publishers directly to get them registered to Tagvillage. These will be high quality business members that are likely to spend a lot of money to get the Tags they are targetting. Up until now there have not been these types of members on the site as Tagvillage had not yet developed the advertising platform enough. All that is changing and the big players are going to make a big difference.
You can read the latest news item at http://budurl.com/tagnews
Tagvertising commissions for members have been small in both quantity and value up until now. This will change as just one good publisher could generate thousands of tagvertising commissions…DAILY! This is a game changer in every respect. Publishers and Advertisers will be likely to fight for the tags they are targetting and will not think twice about paying thousands of dollars to get them. This will generate big referral commissions for their sponsor members. For example as Tag prices go up so do the commissions, you could potentially make a commission worth hundreds of dollars. It is not unfeasible in the future for some commissions to be over $1000 each. That is where the Millionaires Club comes in.
A very limited opportunity exists for members to register at one of three levels to take part in the Millionaires Club. This will entitle members to positions that will give them referrals from those that Tagvillage are recruiting directly. There are also bonus referrals that will be given. The three levels have costs of $50, $90 and $120. It is a once off opportunity to take part and begins in 2 days.
It is the ‘house’ referrals like the advertisers and publishers that Tagvillage will gather over the coming months. It is not yet published how many positions are available but you will not want to miss out on it. These are not like normal referrals you get, these are highly motivated cashed up business people and companies. Well maybe not all of them are perfect but imagine just one referral that is spending thousands a month on advertising or tags, your referral commissions will rocket.
But how big is this really?
The online advertising industry is huge, really huge. Billions of dollars are poured into it not just yearly but monthly as you can see above. As an example just one advertising network that Tagvillage is associated with is gets over 40 million clicks a day. Every one of those clicks represents a commission to a publisher and the company. Tagvillage is new to the game but offers the advertisers and publishers advantages that no other advertising network offers. It is because of that they will want to join. It is not hard to imagine that tagvillage could be paying hundreds of thousands or maybe even over a million tagvertising commissions within a year. Then there are the referral commissions.
What all this means is that members taking advantage of the Millionaires Club will get some great quality referrals. At the same time all members whether they join the club or not will benefit from increased Daily Profit Share and massively increased tagvertising commissions. Instead of having a tag getting one click ocassionally there will be some tags that will get tens and even hundreds of clicks a day. Multiply that by hundreds or thousands of tags depending on your portfolio and the numbers become more than most people can believe they could possibly earn, but they will.
I realize this is a big message and I appreciate you taking in my thoughts. We live in an exciting time and I hope that you are able to benefit from the opportunities available.
If you haven’t already joined Tagvillage, or you joined and then did nothing, it is time to have another look. This time it is for real, no false promises. With an exceptional development staff and solutions to problems that have been sought by advertisers and publishers, this is set to take off.
I know there are many people who start small and do not have much to invest so I will offer serious people a small amount of credit to start with. All you have to do is comment on this post and contact me after joining using my link below.
Be part of it
It seems almost every day there is another ‘next best thing’. Some of these new businesses are soon forgotten in a matter of months, weeks, even days. It is often said down the track, ‘if only we had gotten into that earlier’, or sometimes, ‘if only we didn’t get in that’.
If you want to succeed in creating an income online you are bound to have some failure on the way to success. This will happen to most people so if you find yourself in a position where you feel like you have gotten nowhere do not despair. The hardest thing for people is to know which businesses are going to be worthwhile for them and which aren’t. As we do not have a crystal ball to show us the future we have to base decisions on some underlying factors. These include;
Who is running the company and are they trustworthy
Is there a solid base to the company
Is the income sustainable
Is there a demand for what they are offerring
What is the risk involved
Am I prepared to take the amount of risk for the possible reward.
Think about this for a minute. There are businesses right now I can show you that you will double your money in 67 days. In fact it could be even less than that. If you knew without a doubt that you would get your money doubled, how much would you put in there? Now what if I said there is around a 20% risk that the company might disappear and you may lose the money, how much would you put in now?
This is the thinking you must employ. If you are comfortable putting $1000 into a business, with the potential of it doubling in a couple of months, then you have to be aware that it is considered a higher risk. But many people that took that risk have earned a small fortune. Others have put in a small amount they were comfortable with and grown that.
The other myth you may hear is that you have to get in at the very start to be able to make any money. Well people disprove this all the time. In fact the only time this is really true is when a business does not grow well and its compensation plan relies on referrals. Those businesses often shoot up fast and then come to a halt. Some people make money and a lot do not.
Yes there is another word people do not like is referrals. For a lot of people getting referrals is tough, sometimes bordering on impossible. So how are they going to make money in these businesses that rely on them so much. Simple answer, they wont.
So that brings us to businesses that have been around longer. If it has been going for close to a year or more then you can say it is doing well. Most of these will have enough people talking about them to know if they are reliable or not. This does not guarantee security though, do not misinterpret the longer time a business is operating to mean it is easier or more likely to succeed. But at least you can get a bit of history from it.
So with all these things in mind here are my picks for you to have a go at in 2012 with a brief reason why.
Tagvillage – While growth is slow this is one for the long term. You will not make money as quickly here but if you grow a tag portfolio, as the company expands with the ad widgets you will get rewarded in the long run. Possibly a lot more than other programs. The publisher widget is in testing phase now with live launch due in June 2012. So it is a good time to be building.
JustBeenPaid now ProfitClicks
Pays a daily % on your positions purchased and has a cycling component after a certain number of days. Justbeenpaid has been going over a year and is very popular. People say that these will go forever but I am skeptical of that. Still it’s worth putting some money into and taking that risk. As I mentioned above though be aware it is a risk, never put in what you can’t afford to lose. I also suggest withdrawing your initial investment as soon as you can so you are working with money earned from that point on. It only takes a few months to be doing that.
Overall I like the opportunities that do not rely on having referrals to earn. Too many people join something they can only earn on by having a lot of others join them. Often that is hard for them and they end up earning nothing at all.. It is much better to be involved with something that you determine if you will earn from it.
After a fair amount of time with some hosting problems I am finally getting on top of things and have the site back up. I still have to get a few things in place but hope to be bringing you some interesting articles in the near future.
Helping others create an income is my goal and 2012 promises to be a great year.
I hope you have enjoyed more success than failures and learnt from any of those.
Keep your eyes open.
It took sometime but finally Alertpay have concluded their investigation into Kooday. The result is that people that lost money got a percentage of their loss back. People that made money did not get anything back. Some people ask if that is fair but really if they made a profit they shouldn’t have anything to complain about.
Here is what the Alertpay email said
Thank you for contacting AlertPay’s Resolutions department.
Your request for a refund has been granted and you may access your account to see the credit. The credit that was applied to your account is the 12.67% of difference between the payments sent to and received from the seller.
The credit you received is the 12.67% of same amount you lost when sending money to that specific seller. Please consider yourself fortunate as not all members will be able to get reimbursed due to the nature of such programs.
Please note for future reference when submitting a dispute you are only to submit once ticket per seller/issue. Opening multiple tickets only results in delays and may reflect negatively on your claim.
So that concludes Kooday, although the site is still up, I suspect only to try to get some poor suckers to deposit money before they find out that the site is dead.
I know there are many that did not put in a dispute with Kooday because they thought they ould only do so if they lost money in the previous 30 days. Now it appears they took into account all payments. I am not sure if they will now accept claims made but I would suggest giving it a try if you lost money. It may only be 12.67% of what you lost but that is better than nothing.
Ok, Kooday is dead and buried, the Alexa ranking is finally catching up and has headed south like a flock of geese. People stopped coming, people stopped believing not only in Kooday but also in online business and sometimes even themselves.
It is very easy to blame someone or something else for failure. I’m not saying that we should blame ourselves as certainly in this case Kooday led people on a merry trip that hooked them like a drug hooks an addict. But even drug addicts can recover, one of the first steps is to realize that it is not totally their own fault and that only they have the power within to change.
I have heard some people say that Kooday was the first and last time they will be involved in a company online. I think that is sad that they allow themselves to lose hope for all that they could achieve based on one experience.
The most powerful thing in our lives are our dreams. They can be strong enough to move us to do extradinary things. Think of all the things we would not have now if people did not follow their dream. All the inventions you can think of at one time started as an idea in somebodies head. Most of them had to face many challenges before they were able to achieve success. Edison had over 1400 failed attempts at making a lightbulb. Aren’t you glad he didn’t give up. In fact when asked about his failures his comment was that he learned something from each one that he didn’t know before.
Sometimes though it is very easy to give up. Seeing no success, often thinking that it may work for others but not you. I understand the frustrations, I really do. But all in all the one thing that can carry you through is a strong dream and desire. You have to want something bad enough that it hurts, because if it doesn’t hurt then you will find it hard to keep going when the going gets tough. Do you remember that song? Maybe showing my age a bit, ‘When the going gets tough, the tough get going’.
The one thing you need to do to help you get on the road to success is define what you really want, what you are willing to do to get it, and how you are going to achieve it. The last part of that really depends on the vehicle you are using. No not what kind of car you drive, the vehicle that will provide you with what you are wanting to achieve. That could be money, recognition, charity, power, fame. For most people the money and recognition would be the main ones.
Have you got a desire strong enough?
This is a hard one. One of the strongest desires people have worldwide is to provide for their family. Especially their children. Ok, yes I know there are single people as well that may read this and obviously that may not be your focus, but hopefully in the future you will have a family of your own and you will see that your priorities change.
You see it in the movies all the time where someone sacrifices everything they can including their own life for the benefit of their family. It is not just movie magic, this is common in real life. In recent times we had some of the worst floods this country has ever endured which cost lives as it ran through several towns. One of the stories that really hit a nerve was of a mother and her two sons that were clutching for life in the raging floodwaters as a bystander tried to rescue them. Here is a short version of what happened.
Jordan Rice was only 13, but when he realized not all of his family could be saved, he ended up making the ultimate sacrifice. As floodwaters rushed up around him and his family, the Toowoomba, Australia, boy — who was afraid of the water — made a decision that would cost him his life: His little brother should be rescued first. Rice and his mother were swept away and drowned in the country’s massive floods this week. “Jordan can’t swim and is terrified of water,” his father, John Tyson, told. “But when the man went to rescue him, he said ‘save my brother first.’”
Even now reading this I get choked up and have tears in my eyes, and I’m no girl! Maybe the fact that I have a 12 and 8 year old boy myself makes it hit home harder to me. Maybe it would be the same for anyone that has kids. If you click on the picture you can read a full article on it.
Sometimes we all think we have it so bad ourselves but it is a brave person to claim that there is no one that is worse off then they are.
Sure things may be at a low point in your life and that really is something I can understand. You want to pull yourself out of that, you want things to be better, you want to be happy, you want it to be easy. Nothing is easy though that is worthwhile. Childbirth is hard but it is worthwhile. Building a business is hard but it is worthwhile. Raising a family is hard but it is worthwhile. Changing the world is hard but it is worthwhile.
Do not be afraid of the hard stuff, it is what makes it more worthwhile in the end. The satisfaction of succeeding will be far more rewarding and the challenges you had on the journey will seem all the more smaller than the insurmountable obstacles they seemed like at the time. Some say it is character building.
You are in control of your own destiny. Not me, not your boss, not your friends, not your family, just you. There is opportunity out there for those who seek it, you just have to face the facts that not all opportuities will pan out the way you would like them to. Pick your opportunities wisely and work at them with passion to achieve more than you ever dreamed possible. The rewards far outweigh the struggles.
So whether you are just starting in the online world or if you have already been fighting demons in your head trying to break through. I hope this gives you that little bit of inspiration that you can do it, because I know you can. Never doubt yourself.
One of the things I like online is free stuff. There is actually places you can join free and earn from them. So when I found out about a program where people would get $5 free just to join up and also earn from 3 levels of free referrals I thought this is pretty good.
It hasn’t started yet which is also to your benefit as that means others have not already got involved. I mean how easy is it to have someone join up free when you are basically offerring them $5 to do it.
Because it has not started yet there is nowhere to signup yet so I have started a waiting list for those that want to get the link as soon as it is available. To get on the waiting list go to the site below and put in your name and email. It also has a bit of informatioona about it.
I will be getting one of the first links available for this so that means if you are on the waiting list you will too. I am thinking of making up some replica pages like this one for people to also be able to get people involved. If you are interested in one let me know.
While we are talking about free sites to earn from I’d like to update about another one that I have been benefiting from for some time now.
I look forward to bringing you more great opportunities as they present themself.
