I am new to this and I am trying to find out how ca none stay consistant with this? My main concern is with the offers. I have noticed that there are many offers but can one still get credit for the same offer on a totally different website as I have noticed that some of these websites have the same offers.
Here is a little something for ya. The trick is to stay organized, and don't start too quickly or you can lose track of your offers and trials.
DELETE YOUR COOKIES! It is not just a good idea. Not doing so will cause you problems in getting credit for offers. Also, delete them frequently, I do it after each trade to stay safe. I had a bad day not too long ago because of this.
Keep track of the offers you complete. I have been sending the links to these offers to my desktop. You don't want to get hit with a $99.95 charge to your account at the end of the trial period, unless of course you want the product or service after the free trial is over.
Create relationships with traders who treat you well. I have a kid (@ 18 years old!) who helped me with my first offer and paid me quickly. We will continue to do business. (Thanks chrome89K). I can also recommend carlennj, secondjob, and jennywhitley. There are others, but I have had a positive experience with these traders.
Some of the FREE offers actually include $1 or more processing/S&H fees. Be sure to read the terms and conditions on each offer. Also, make sure you don't pay out more in processing/S&traders than you are getting for the offer. Seems logical, but you could stumble on it if your not carefully reading terms.
Look for offers that pay on GREEN, not on approval, unless you trust the trader you are working with and you know how many approvals you have left. I'm waiting on a PAID ON APPROVAL trade, and who knows when that will happen.
(actually, the guy has a good trading record and I do not anticipate a problem).
Once you have made some $$, paid on approval is OK, and actually preferred by many veteran traders to protect themselves against trafers going RED. Once again, building relationships is key. Find the veterans and work with them.
READ THE RULES! They are there to help you. If you are confused by any of them, post a message in the Help forum. Someone who knows the answer to your question will respond.
The real money is in cashing out sites. Build up you trade record and KARMA at first, then use your good standing to help you get referrals. Use the money you used going green to pay for them, and you will maintain a positive cash flow.
And most importantly, do NOT drink chloral hydrate from the bottle when you have a pus-filled boil on your butt. Things will go very badly for you.
Also, another thing you might want to note is that once you do an offer, you can never, never, do that offer again, regardless if it is for a different site or not.
Don't get overly greedy or expect to be a veteran your first week. I see too many offers in the trade module from people with a TR of 0 offering to pay others on green.
There have been a few scammers lately so if somebody wants to pay you on approval don't immediately dismiss it. Check and see how many referrals they have left and how long they have been working on it. That should give you an idea how long it will take.
