This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Social media has gained immense popularity over the last few years. Services like Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare have become so popular that they have become a great way to promote your businesses. Smartphones have contributed significantly to the popularity of social media. IZEA, the creator of popular services like Social Spark, Sponsored Tweets has launched a service called WeReward which rewards you for completing tasks and checkins in the real world. All you need is-
1. An iPhone
2. A Twitter, Facebook or Foursquare account
3. A Paypal account
The only part that costs is buying an iPhone in case you don’t have one. Rest of the requirements are basic. Have a look at this video to understand how WeReward works-
Its simple, iPhone owners first need to Download the App. Then link it with your social networking account. You can then look at opportunities like checkins and tasks for which you will be awarded reward points. You can also earn reward points by referring other users to WeReward through the referral program. Once you’ve accumulated 10,000 reward points, you can cash them out to your Paypal account at the rate of 1 penny per reward point. The minimum payout amount is thus $10 which is pretty low. IZEA services usually have low or reasonable minimum payout amounts so the services will work for you even if you don’t use them too frequently.
If you are a business owner, you can visit WeReward.com to know more about what the service has to offer and to sign up with WeReward.
Very often you come across tricks to make free calls and honestly, most of them don’t work. I recently came across a trick that really works so it gets to feature on my blog. So here goes the trick to make free STD and ISD calls with Skype.
First of all, the only requirement is that you need to have Skype installed. If you don’t have skype you can download and install it. Skype works on all platforms-Windows, Linux and Mac too.
What we are going to use in this trick is a service called Free411. Its actually a US based service with the toll free number- +1-800-FREE411 which is +1-800-3733411. Skype does not charge for calls made on toll free numbers so calling this number using Skype won’t cost a penny. So here’s what you have to do-
Dial +18003733411 on Skype and click on the call button to connect the call. I would suggest you to save this number in your Skype contacts for faster future access.
The call will be answered by an IVRS system. You will have to bear a small ad before you reach the main menu. When prompted to select your option, say “Free Call”. Now if their lines are not busy, you will get a 5 minute free call. You will be asked to dial the phone number to which you wish to make the call. Dial the full number including ISD code. For example prefix Indian mobile numbers with +91, UK numbers with +44 UAE numbers with +971 etc.
This service works well for me and usually I manage to connect to a free call within 5 to 10 minutes of trying to get a free line which is acceptable considering that this service is being used extensively in the US and also by people from all parts of the world. Leave a comment if you face any kind of difficulty or have any doubt about this service.
PS-The service I’ve mentioned here is a free service. Please use it judiciously and don’t use it for making prank calls. Your idea of fun will might make this service unavailable for someone who needs it more than you do.
PPS-For all my friends who for some reason haven’t added me on Skype yet and for those who intend to create a skype ID after reading this post, my ID is namanbagga.
