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):
