You can make money viewing and clicking ads. Surprise! The concept is nothing new and I’m sure plenty of you are actively engaging in a similar program right now. Well, YouData is bringing something new to the table and they are currently paying quite well.
Information about YouData
As far as I can tell, YouData is a fairly new company that will pay you to view, then click on ads. You create a “MeFile” which includes personal detail about you and your interests and YouData will serve up ads based on your responses in your MeFile. Their current rates are surprisingly high. You get paid 5 cents to view a banner ad, and you’re shown 5 at a time. You’re then paid 15 cents every time you click on one of the ads. This process takes about 45 seconds and will earn you a dollar. Sure, it’s not a lot of money, but how often are you paid $1.00 for 45 seconds of your time? I’d be willing to bet, not that often.
The interface of the program is fairly slick and you can see the actual ad block used if you look to the right of this posting (Reading this in your email? Click here to visit the post.) If you’ve signed up and created an account already, you can view your ads here at I’ve Tried That and even opt to pay us a small percentage of your earnings as a thank you. Of course you can keep it all for yourself, but feel free to give back to us at any time.
Payments are issued every Friday and are sent out via Paypal. You can also convert your earnings into iTunes and Amazon gift cards, or donate them directly to charity. I have yet to come across anyone complaining about not getting paid by YouData and I fully expect my earnings to be deposited come Friday.
My Experience with YouData
Well, I joined yesterday and made $2.29 in about two minutes. I have viewed and clicked on all of the available ads, and have anxiously been awaiting for more to arrive. But, it is now 24 hours later and nothing is waiting for me.
The good news is that I’ve been a member for 24 hours and haven’t received a single unwanted or spam email from YouData or any of their advertisers. YouData insists that your personal information is your personal information and they don’t have the right to sell off your privacy. Shocked to hear about an advertising company interested in protecting your information? I am too.
I recommend joining YouData. It seems like a fairly solid program for the time being and at worst, you’ll spend about a few minutes making a couple of dollars that will be paid to you on Friday. After you join, come back to I’ve Tried That and share your experiences in the comments below. I’d love to know what you guys think of this one.
