Have you ever wished you could get paid for doing a simple task such as watching online videos? Or are you looking for websites that pay for viewing ads in Nigeria?
I heard of such things in the past, but I never took it seriously because it sounded too good to be true!
But recently, I have been receiving loads of emails and chat messages from persons asking about websites that pay for viewing ads or how they can get paid for viewing ads or video content. Usually, I wouldn’t say I like answering these chat or email messages. Why?
Most messages are from people who have been at home because of the pandemic. They want to know how to make money online in Nigeria or join an online panel or answer surveys to watch videos and earn money in Nigeria. I assume that many are students looking for ways to augment their student finance. So even when I have their email address, I don’t bother to reply.
Many of them were landing on my Pay-Per-Click advertising page (discontinued). So I assume they mistake Pay-per-Click (PPC) advertising for affiliate marketing or something else.
What they seek is not PPC advertising. After I explain the difference to them, they realise their mistake.
Do You Wish You Could Get Paid for Watching Ads in Nigeria?
I heard about a site or mobile app that claims to reward you for anything from watching videos to completing a quick large-scale survey for one of the largest consumer networks online. All from the comfort of your sofa!
They offered cash rewards, gift cards, travel credit cards, virtual scratch-off cards, etc., to people looking to earn extra cash in their spare time. All these in exchange for them to watch online videos, various types of videos, video ads or complete surveys.
But I never took it seriously until I started receiving these messages.
Call me old-fashioned, but I’m sceptical about anything that looks or sounds too good to be true.
But, according to this article, making money online from watching entertaining videos is a thing these days!
Since people are already spending more time at home watching films, clips and ads online, they see it as a simple way to earn some extra cash in their spare time. They claim to get paid through Paypal or bank transfer!Some websites claim to reward you for anything from watching videos to completing quick surveys. All from your sofa! Click To Tweet
The article above explains an ideal way to make money alongside similar ventures like running a YouTube account.
The article proposes that all the video-related work experience could hugely boost your CV and help you get a film, TV, or digital media job.
According to this article, the videos they will show will vary, but you can expect plenty of brief clips, ads, news content and viral videos. I’ve also heard that some posing as legit websites may prompt you to download a smartphone survey app from a so-called market research company or worldwide network!
You might not earn vast amounts of money running into hundreds of thousands, so don’t quit your day job just yet. You can consider doing this alongside other online businesses.
I learnt that some operate a reward model. So instead of offering you an actual cash reward or real money, they may provide you with a virtual gift card or gift code in exchange for monitoring consumer habits.
I also read that taking part in online surveys via mobile apps is another way to make money. You can participate in market research, give your opinion, and earn money.
Look Before You Leap
Before participating in any of these activities to earn some extra money, you do well to exercise caution and do thorough research.
As I mentioned above, the websites mentioned in this article are not endorsed by or affiliated with Mauco Enterprises. So you take part at your own risk.
Now that privacy issues are a significant concern with online activities, you do well to ask their customer service lots of questions before signing up or giving your contact detail, card detail or bank account details to any websites offering these types of activities/services.
At the very least, find out:
- How any personal data concerning you is processed.
- How any error in your data is amended.
As of the time of writing this post, some of the security precautions you can take are to be aware of any suspicious activity on your privacy settings, internet browser, browser window, or browser version before clicking any invitation link or browser survey. Also, be wary of putting your details into any payment solution or payment options. These are some of the protection requirements and regulations you need to adhere to.
If you are signing up for an online survey panel for market research or a gift card, make sure you know what the scheme is about, how it works, and the conditions of participation. Don’t get lured by enticing rewards for participation. Review your bank balance from time to time and look out for any suspicious transactions. Do not open any strange invitation email, survey invitation or fill a contact form on dodgy websites.
If your company wants to invite people to take an online survey or any other digital survey-based research for market research purposes, there are ways to go about it. You need to know the conditions for participation and how to attract a suitable survey participant, the subject matter of your questionnaire, the quality standard or quality assurance your questions must adhere to, and even the type of gift voucher you can offer. All these need to be given careful attention before sending out your first email message to invite your survey participants. So that your email invitation meets all necessary quality assurance and does not get flagged by their email service provider end up in their spam folder.
As mentioned above, all the websites or get paid to click ads, watch videos or take survey activities and services mentioned in this article are not affiliated with Mauco Enterprises.
Mauco Enterprises does not offer these services.
If you have any more questions, please do not ask me. Contact the websites offering these services instead. They will know better how to help you.
