Swagbucks - Lots Of Free Gift Cards

Want some free gift cards?  Sure you do.  Found a great place online to earn them fast.

Swagbucks.com has you watch videos, fill out surveys, etc for points which you can cash in for anything from an Amazon to a Starbucks gift card.

And the kicker ... if you sign up through one of the banners on my site (again, it's free), you'll get a $5 credit. You have to make sure you verify your email to get the credit - so don't use a bogus one to sign up.

Enjoy!  I got to about $25 in credit with a half-hour of effort.

Capital One 360 Expands Referral Program - Now Earn $1,000!

So ... good news.  The previous Capital One 360 referral program I wrote an article about last year has now become even better.

The new policy:
  • $20 per referral, instead of $10
  • You can now earn a total of $1000, instead of $500
This is great news as it's a pretty easy program to game.  Just throw an Adwords ad up that says something like "Click here for a $25 bonus with your first deposit".  Who won't click on that if they are going to open an account anyway?  Boom ... easy $20 for you.  You can get those clicks for 5 cents or so ... very easy money.  Especially if you open an account for other family members and double or triple up the $1,000 bonus.  If you get the keywords right, you'll get the $1,000 within 48 hours or so.  Again ... very easy money!

If anyone wants to use my referral link to open an account and get the ball rolling, then CLICK HERE.  I'll get $20 and you will get $25 (or $50 for a new checking account).  Nice deal for both of us!

Have Fun!

Twitter "Top Tweet"

Not sure if any of you know this, but Twitter has a very simple algorithm to get a tweet to be considered a "Top Tweet" ... meaning it will hang around the top 5 or 10 regardless of duration.  Very handy if you are promoting things!

A few tricks:

1. Open a new Twitter account and get just a few quick followers ... maybe 5 or 10.  Top tweets tend to HIGHLY value underdogs in their algorithm.  Meaning that if you post something relevant and a lot of people see it due to search even though you have very few followers, then you usually get "top tweet" status.

2. Don't use tiny links.  Their algorithm hates them.  Use direct links and hash-tags instead.

3. Stick with the basics ... if you are promoting pet supplies, use a hashtag like #dog or #cat.  It's nice and broad and will pop up on a ton of searches.

Test a few combos out and you will be pleasantly surprised.  I just did "dog" and got into the top 5 pretty easily ... check out the screenshot (CouponSurferDude Post):

Email anyone in the world easily

Do you have to sell as part of your job or business? If you do, wouldn't it be great if you could email anyone in the world?

Sure, but how the hell are you going to figure out someones email address?  It's actually pathetically easy.

1. Lets say you want to talk to a VP names Steve Smith who works at ACME.com.  You have a killer product or service you want to pitch to them in an email.
2. Go to ACME.com ... check out the contact page.  See what the email is for support.  It is most likely support@acme.com  Now you know half the address!
3. If they just have a form for support, it's still easy.  Just Google "email@acme.com" and see if any full email addresses come up.  They most likely will.
4. 99% of email addresses fall into four different "structures". 

Structure one is FirstName@ACME.com - this is mostly for smaller companies

Structure two is FirstName.LastName@ACME.com - this is the most common.  Watch out for nicknames here!  If someone is Steven Smith, they could be Steve.Smith@ACME.com or Steven.Smith@ACME.com

Structure three is the second most common.  FirstInitialLastName@ACME.com (SSmith@ACME.com)

These three structures cover 99% of emails.  There are a few other random combos ...

s.smith@acme.com
smiths@acme.com
smith.steve@acme.com

As you can see you only need to try 7 times to get an important email out to an important prospect.

This is a very valuable tool.

Money Hack #22 - Cranking Out LEGIT Surveys Quickly (Up To $75 Per Survey)

So we all know how to find horrendous survey companies that make you fill something out for HOURS and then pay you 20 cents for your time.  Screw that.  Maybe for a stay at home mom with nothing better to do - but you are here to figure out ways to hack money quickly.

So - I found a great research site that partners with huge brands like P&G, Home Depot, etc.  It's interesting actually - these companies pay considerable sums of money to get honest, grass-roots opinions on new and existing products.  Vindale Research provides them with survey takers - all you need to do is SIGN UP with them.

Here is a direct link to the sign-up page for Vindale Research It is free to sign up ... once you are in you'll be able to cruise around and look for high-paying surveys.  It's great really - and VERY EASY to find ones that pay over $50 ... even $75.  Imagine churning a few of these out each day - not a bad side income.

FYI - They payout in PayPal, which makes it even more efficient
