Hi all
A bit about me. I was msde redundant a few years ago, and grabbed a supermarket job as a stop gap. 7yrs later still in.that same job. Wife made redundant, now every penny counts.
Been using a few survey sites to boost my measly income.
Last week I found a facebook group about boosting income, via traffic boosting sites.
I AM COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY LOST. It all seems like jargon, but people on her page are posting large incomes from it.
The webpage "explaining" it all is here.
It seems like a scam, but if it isnt, I do mot want to lose out.

    I've looked at that website and I feel completely and utterly lost too! :)

    I'm not going through the hundred or so pages of the site to figure it out - I see they are selling a 2nd hand DVD on their facebook page though for 50p when I looked at that, and while every penny counts I can't help feeling if they were earning large incomes from whatever it is all about they'd probably not be doing that.

    If you were earning big money by doing something, would you sell this information for 50pence?

    Understand the confusion but the DVD I mentioned wasn't related to the course - was just a normal film dvd - they had a random selection of car boot like items for sale on there. Which seemed odd.

    I couldn't see where they were making money from the website itself.

    Have a look on the referrers forum.
    Maybe you could make some money posting links.

    Do you have SKY or VIRGIN TV, bank with Nationwide, use booking.com.

    These 3 companies as well as lots of others give you money if someone joins through your referral link.

    Trading212 is a quick way to make a few quid (up to £100) but looking at recent posts they have seem to be giving away less valuable shares.

    Survey sites are a lot of effort for very little money,

    Not sure I would describe survey sites as a lot of effort - its a survey, sure you have to think a little bit but I wouldnt describe them as effort. What they are in the main is boring as anything. You get paid pretty much what you deserve after filling one in.

    But at the end of the day, you do what you have to do in order to get food on the table. Or use them to treat yourself to something.
