Social Sites That Pay : ForumCoin and Postloop

Followed the advice of a friend and signed up at a site called ForumCoin.com. This is a site where newbies and beginners trying to publish blogs can get advice and tips on affiliate marketing and blog monetization, suggestions on sites where they can make money online, etc. Members can even play games, share music, and just chit chat. You can create an income stream by being an active member of this site because for all of your various social activities you can earn money.


At ForumCoin, I found a discussion thread about a site called Postloop. You sign up free, follow the instructions carefully to open the portal and from there you proceed to qualify so that you can gain access to more blogs and forums where you can earn money for publishing posts and/or making comments at posts. You sort of have to pass a “test” first. The Postloop owners are looking for people with fairly good writing skills who can publish posts and/or provide comments that contribute to ongoing discussions in the forums or at the blogs. You don't earn money to get qualified. But once you are approved (or qualified), you will receive an eMail with a link that directs you to other forums and blogs you can sign up for that do pay you for your contributions.



When I received my eMail, I subscribed to two forums. Now I can invite others to join those forums. You don't have to go through Postloop. You can use my referral link (below). However, if you do use my link, then you will only have access to the forum you chose to sign up for. Whereas, if you go through the Postloop qualification process, you can have access not only to the forums I joined but you can view the complete list of forums and blogs and pick one or more. You may not want to join the forums I joined. There may be other topics that interest you. These two forums were of interest to me. One forum I joined to learn more about SEO. The other forum I joined because they have a wide range of general topics for you to provide your comments.  Do you already read blogs you like and leave comments?  This is the same thing only you can earn money for making a comment.

My Sign Up Referral Link for Postloop:

Once you are approved or qualified via Postloop, you can then subscribe to the forums like the ones mentioned in this post and start earning.  As stated earlier, you can publish posts and/or make comments at these forums. Most of the time I comment; especially at the SEOClerks forum since I am not really an expert webmaster. But just to give you an idea, at the end of this blog post is a list of some of my published posts at SuperiorThan that the owners approved.  Some are Versus.  Some are Debates or Discussions.  Just click on the appropriate tabs.


This was a brief introduction to my experience with social sites that pay; legitimate websites where you can make money online.  There are more sites out there (also mentioned at ForumCoin).  But these are the sites where I have found my experience to productive and profitable.  Hope this helps you.  Let me know if you have any questions about anything I've written.

Advice for Newbie Bloggers ~ 5 Tips That Bear Repeating

This post to encourage others out there who may have their mind set to tread this path to making money online. It is extremely easy to get discouraged and give up. My first blog post at this blog is dated April 9, 2014.  

It's a mess!! All those strikethroughs. I left them to remind me not to give up! Have had a lot of learning experiences on the road to trying to become a successful blogger. Yes, I did say “trying”. I know it's been 3 years but the goal I'm aiming for - generating consistent monthly income from monetized blogs and affiliate marketing websites - has not yet been achieved.



I am an active participant in a discussion forum called SEOClerks, where you can learn and earn about blogging, writing, affiliate marketing, SEO and a myriad of other tips and tricks that aspiring webmasters need to know.  
(Note:  This community is free to join.)  

A question was asked about advice for newbie bloggers.  Below (below the star) is the response I contributed.

What tips do you recommend for beginners in blogging?



Tip #1 ~ I did not know about communities and forums when I started blogging. But I'm glad I eventually found out about their existence. If for no other reason that I no longer feel like I'm all alone.

Groups on Facebook and Communities on Google Plus are OK.  But if you can find a blogging community or a forum, join it. Try to find one where you can learn and earn. You'll get support and can commiserate with fellow members who are also trying to find their way through the blogging maze.

Join an online writing community, also. It's for article writers. Similar to blogging communities. It helps improve your writing skills.  Most of them have revenue-share programs, along with supportive Admin and members.

If you can afford to pay for the blogging courses offered, then go ahead. If you can't, that's where these communities and forums come in handy. Forums like SEOClerks, for example.  :)


Tip #2 Find blogs you really enjoy reading (search via Bloglovin or sites like that or blog directories), subscribe and visit often. Leave comments. Find the bloggers that will approve your comments and will also allow you to associate your blog URL to your name as a backlink. Not kidding. If you leave comments on a blog post, they go into moderation and you never receive approval or your comments don't become visible online, leave that blog in the dust! There are too many other bloggers out there who would happy to have visitors that leave comments behind.  Leave worthwhile comments. Not one-word exclamations or boring one-liners that make the blogger think you didn't even bother to read their post.

Tip #3 ~ There are many free blog publishing platforms to get started. If you are interested in trying to earn income from your blog, find out what the rules are about monetizing your blog. All blogging platforms are not created equal. Some allow certain things and some don't. You break the rules you will have your blog deleted in a heartbeat!

Tip #4 BUDGETING:  Anything that requires a monetary investment and you have the money to pay for it, then go ahead. If you don't have money, use what you have. Your brains, your skills, a laptop (or whatever device you use), and Internet access.

Tip #5 Most important. Don't expect immediate success. Be patient. Be persistent. Persevere.
