Monetize every link you share on Twitter!

Yep, your TweetBucks are in the bank. Actually, my bucks have been in that bank since June 2009. Now, more than six months and 6,000 clicks later, it's time to take that big payout. Surely, I have met the $25 minimum payout by now.

Founded by Chris Sukornyk, TweetBucks is a way for its users to make money through affiliate fees and cost-per-clicks (CPCs) on ads. TweetBucks' users can choose from big names like Amazon, BestBuy, Barnes & Noble and others as they pursue affiliate earnings from sales generated as a result of clicks on TweetBucks' shortened links embedded in their tweets.

Initially there were three ways to earn with TweetBucks: 1) Refer anyone to TweetBucks, and they would deposit a commission equal to 10% of that person's earnings into your account each month for 6 months, 2) When shortening a link on TweetBucks, enable the ad-frame, and they would pay you every time someone clicks on it and 3) When a click on a merchant link resulted in a sale, you could earn "big" revenue (TweetBucks, 2009). The ad-frame option, however, did not last long:

August 2009 We’re sad to announce that we’ve had to temporarily disable the Tweetbucks’ Ad Frame option due to a series of malicious ‘bots’ attacking the Tweetbucks system. One of the affects of these attacks was an ‘unusual’ account balance increase that affected a few of our user’s account balances over the last couple of weeks. Since our policy does not allow us to charge advertisers (or award you) for malicious clicks, you may notice a decrease in your account balance as we correct the situation. (TweetBucks, 2009)

With a total of 6,092 clicks, my total estimated earnings are $10.5980, which is clearly shown in the earnings summary shown on the landing page presented after account login. Just as clearly shown are my cleared balance, which is on the Balance page. Cleared Balance? Yep, my TweetBucks are in the bank; all total $5.91. So much for the $25 minimum balance needed for payout.

Is Vinefire Ready to be Picked

"Earn Cash Within Minutes!" That's what the say at Vinefire. A recent article about Vinefire reminds us that Vinefire discloses on their website that Vinefire is an experiment, and their hopes were that they would be purchased by a larger company. Thus, the money in your account may or may not ever be paid out (BestMommy, 2009).

According to the Vinefire Newsletter - Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2009, the Vinefire website might have been sold. Now, I'm still very skeptical, but I have to admit that rushed to login to my Vinefire account and ramped up my balance from $0.04 to a little over $50. Hey, maybe they're right, "Earn Cash Within Minutes!" Here's what they wrote:

Hello Everyone,

We are preparing to sell the Vinefire website. The website will likely be under new ownership within a few short weeks.

We expect this sale will be good news for everyone involved. We can't give you more details than that right now, but we are very excited at the possibilities this creates for both the new owner and the Vinefire members.

As we prepare for this transition, we will be making some changes to the website. We'll keep you updated.

Had I been duped again? Was this just another ploy to get people to spend time on the Vinefire website, clicking and clicking and clicking. . . . How do you earn money online within minutes on Vinefire?

There is a daily earning limit of $25. Unless you have a very forgiving index finger, $25 is enough for one day . . . click, click, click. . . . Sign-up and promote your offers (URLs) for FREE. Every time someone votes your link up, you earn $0.02. Click on sponsor links and earn $0.90 per click (seems more like $0.23 per click based on my experience).

There are even more ways to earn money with Vinefire. Refer a friend and earn 50% of their earnings when they click, vote or add a link on Vinefire. You get $10 for every referral, and new members get $10 just for signing up! Here's my Vinefire referral link just in case the sales goes through.

Unlike other pay-per-click (PPC) advertising websites, on Vinefire it's easy to rack up the dollars every day. Clicking and voting on Vinefire is all done from their "live links" pages. Add as many links as you like and generate traffic for your Web presence.

Does all of this sound too easy? Is it too good to be true, probably so. Nevertheless, it only takes about 20 to 30 minutes to sign-up, earn your $10 sign-up bonus and put your first $25 worth of clicks in the [Vinefire] bank.
