Another way to make a little extra cash for our Disney funds

A thread had been posted about this topic b/f and quickly deleted since it had a link with, I think, a "refer a friend" in it. The original poster didn't do it on purpose to solicit a referral perk, but the thread was deleted since it did defy the rules.

I wanted to post about it again b/c I was so luckily saw the link b/f it was gone! So without breaking any rules, here's the info:

There is a neat site called ExpoTV where you review a product on video and upload it to their site. You earn $5 per review! I have been doing my reviews in less than 10 minutes from start to finish. ExpoTV will send $5 to your Paypal account for every review you do. (I believe the money is forwarded the end of the following month.) You also earn a penny for every view of your reviews (which COULD add up!)....

Thank you Momto2SweetGirls for the suggestion! It's fun and easy and it's making me a little extra Disney spending money!

That is what I would love to know before I invest a lot of time doing all those videos.

This is my 1st month doing it, so I'll let ya'll know if I get paid or not, this month I've only made 16 videos but plan on doing at least 20, so that way if I do get paid, it's $100 that I didnt already have. And if I get paid, come next month, Im gonna try and do the whole 100 video limit if possible.

Actually, I asked for the post to be deleted since it was causing such an uproar although I had fixed the link.

I was paid $999.18 last night, woo hoo!!

Super easy money. But be careful talking about it, for some reason if I even mention expotv, my posts and all those talking about it get deleted, and they won't answer why when I ask and all I did was put in a referral link the first time, not knowing I shouldn't, but I fixed it within 5 minutes of posting. I was just trying to help, I have no affiliation with the company, just nearly $1000 sitting in my bank account for the easiest work I've ever done!!

Glad some of you are having success with it!

Jennifer

ETA: It definitely legit, they've been around for a couple of years. I didn't find it until April of this year though. Their forums are full of long time members though.

Oh man when I first read this I thought you watched video reviews...now I see you actually make a video review and send it to them. Ick. I dont know if I want videos of myself hangin out there in cyberspace. How long do they have to last? What can you review? Sounds like good money but to the person who made 1000 how much time did you invest doing it? Just curious about it all.

Well, you just make a video of yourself reviewing any product that is currently available. Upload it and voila! $5! I spend about 4 hours each month making the videos and about 2 hours uploading them, so about 6 hours total and I earn $500 myself. Dh does the same. Their rules are super easy to follow, make sure you read the FAQ section. It really is as easy as it sounds!

Disneyworld, here we come!

ETA: Your reviews need to be at least 1 minute, but no longer than about 3 minutes. I make sure I hit the minute mark and then I wrap up whatever I'm saying. So, you're getting paid $5 a minute, can't beat that, lol.

So do you just use a digital camera and then upload it? I know DH will definitely be in on this. Do you just grab products from around your house or just when you buy something new?

Yes, you just use your digital camera and yes you use products from around your house. I haven't bought anything new yet, and we've done over 200 reviews. Here are some suggestions for things to review-

Household products like cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, dish soap, etc.
Personal products like toothpaste, hairspray, shampoo, deoderant, etc
Clothing lines like gymboree, faded glory, circo, janie & jack, old navy etc
Shoe brands like Nike, Adidas, Stride Rite, etc
Purses, wallets, sunglasses, etc as long as you know the brand
CD's
DVD's (no VHS)
2005 or newer cars are allowed
movies currently in the theatre
Baby products such as carseats, bouncy seats, diapers, wipes, shampoo, lotion, bottles, etc
Kids toys such as leap frog, little people, elmo, anything that is currently available to buy
Books
Food
+ tons more

Look around your house, you'd be surprised at how much you can review!

I'm going on a trip this afternoon, I will try and pop in and answer any more questions, but if you don't hear back from me, then that means we left early and I'll be back next week.

I'm going to give this a try. I'm not working right now so I have a ton of free time. Hopefully things will go well. I'll let you all know how it goes.

Well of all times for this to happen. My crappy Kodak camera went up on me. Well the video part of it. I can no longer get sound and Kodak wants over 100 to fix it and my local repair shop said my best bet is to buy something different because he gets 3 calls a week for the Kodak Easy Share breaking right after warranty goes up and they are not worth it to fix. Darn it all. Well I guess I wont be doing any reviews soon.

Is it typically $5 a video because it says that's just the June promotion?>
