Ximmy Top Social Reviews A Money Maker?

XimmyI am really not into stuff like this but the fact that Ximmy is now up and running and the fact that I see tremendous growth potential should warrant at least a mention about them.

Basically the whole idea of Ximmy is to pay you for sharing top sites, videos, stories and pictures from around the web. Upon reading their rewards page they say this:

We are the first company to reward you for your contributions to our community through points that you can redeem for cash. Just registerfor an account. (It’s free!) You will earn points for submitting stories and posting comments. When your story is published to the home page, you will receive 15 points. Once you hit a points bracket, you can redeem the points for cash at any time. Payments are made via PayPal.

Points Earn:

1 point – Story Submitted
1 point – Comment
15 points – Popular (homepage)
Points Rewards
1,000 $10
1,800 $20
3,200 $40
6,000 $80
12,000 $160
20,000 $300

Bonus: Once you hit any of the points bracket, you’ll receive an extra $20 bonus during payout.(Expires 6/01/08)

Upon seeking a little bit more clarity on this their FAQ’s page was basically a model of what we already read. At least they have a contact page.

The bareness and lack of professionalism is a total turnoff. However they also go on to tell you about theirĀ Affiliate program. They pay you $5 for joining up and $0.50 for every referral. Peanuts if you ask me but I thought I would pass this along in case anyone has a list or blog readers that might be interested in it.

Another social networking site that pays people for viewing and contributing is http://www.yuzie.com

I have not bothered to join, but seems like a new trend.

Indeed it does Robert. I’m not really focusing too much on them now because I got something big coming up but I will definately keep my eye on these two. Most likely something WILL come about to make money with these types of sites and I am not talking about the pennies they pay us to join :)
