|Who doesn’t like to surf the web? What if you could earn up to $20.00 every year for doing it?|
I love the question – “Who doesn’t like to surf the web? What if you could earn up to $20.00 every year for doing it?” Geez, I guess it would be worth installing your software or reporting my clicks manually, maybe even filling out a log… haha seriously? Do they actually believe that someone who can afford a computer and internet access would be moved to do something for A YEAR and get only $20.00 ?? Really?
You tell me? Is a “guaranteed” check every three months for $5 worth doing ANYTHING? Who heads their recruitment department – Joe, the bum under the bridge? The bigger question is – isn’t there going to be some sort of crazy built-in homeless dude bias to the ratings?
Good luck all the same to the folks at Nielson. haha
