How to Make Money Sharing Your Christmas List
Modern technology has made our time the age of the Penny Hoarder. Only ten years ago, companies paid large chunks of change to one massive advertising agency to get the word out on products and build a brand. Today, companies pay masses of individuals to do the marketer’s job and my how the pennies are rolling into the personal stash every day because of it.
You can make money for watching TV. You can make money while shopping. Now you can make money sharing pictures of the things you want to buy with friends and all you need is a free account with Fancy.
What is Fancy?
You’ve heard of Pintrest; you simply post a cool looking picture on a social wall. When your friends click the picture, they are taken to the corner on web that the picture was lifted from. A picture of a man stranded on his roof might take you to a news update on a massive flood. The photo of strawberry rhubarb pie leads you to the blessed pie recipe.
Fancy has a similar interface, but it has a shopping focus. Users post pictures of the items that they have shopped and bought or want to buy on the internet. Clicking the photo sends your friends to the site where you can buy the item. Other users can also see the things you’ve fancied and post on their pages as well. It also links up to your twitter and facebook accounts so you can spread the word with more of your social network.
It’s like sharing your shopping list or gift wish list with your friends and family.
How Can You Earn Money with Fancy?
Are you constantly shopping online? Then it should be easy for you to get started with Fancy.
All you need to do is register for an account. Once you are set up, you’ll need to go out and find things that you fancy: a new watch, shoes or the vintage Atari game from 1982. With your dream purchase selected, post the link to the item on your Fancy page.
The Fancy will create a unique link through your post that will record traffic from your tweets, shares or posts. If anyone purchases through your unique link, you’ll earn a commission on the sale.
What’s the Payout Like?
Commissions on purchases are 2 percent of the total sale for anyone buying through your referral. For example, last night I posted a picture of a samurai sword that got 20 views from my friends and family. The sword cost $350, so if 10 of my friends had made a purchase, I would collect a check for $70.
You also get 5 credits for every new user that you refer.
If you are an avid social media user, you are probably already sharing the things you fancy with friends and family. However, setting up a The Fancy account will be your ticket to hoarding pennies while you do it.
