Who uses Maadly?


Don't know what it is? It's a new, gamified network that let's people from all over the world share their life and earn karma points. Upon closer inspection is sounds like it could be cool because there is no friending or following required. Just share your "beat" with the world, and if people like it, BOOM! Karma points and your post can go viral... Now, the reason we ask if anyone is using it is because even though it sounds cool, it also sounds like it could be a nightmare. You could be getting notified endlessly of total random things from complete strangers. Given this, and the fact it is only available on the Apple platform, we have not tried it. However, if you have tried it, love it or hate it, let us know your thoughts.

Boost Insider - Real or Scam?

While surfing about today we came across Boost Insider and thought we'd give it a try. They are a PPC and CPA marketing platform that pays "social influencers" to drive traffic and sales to their various marketing clients. (At the time of writing, from what we can find on their site, the highest pay out is $12.50 per sign up for a dry cleaning service in San Francisco.) In shor,t it is an affiliate marketing platform geared toward social media users. There are a number of such programs and affiliate marketing platforms. We've tried such programs in the past. Other than Google Adsense, we have rarely been paid for driving traffic and sales. There is usually some technicality as to why the publisher does not want to pay. However, one in one hundred programs actually work. So, we are testing Boost Insider. You can too. If you want to make money for promoting items you like and that are relevant to your audience, try Boost Insider. Let us know the results. We will also share our experience as time goes on.

Sale price increase with each purchase

This is interesting. Over at UnitedByJoomla.com, they are having a bundled package sale of geek related things. The price itself is good, if need the items, but what's interesting is the sales tactic. They have super low price that increases by one dollar with every purchase. Hmm. What a tactic! Though I don't need the specific product offering, I felt a tinge of "hurry up and buy" before the price increases. I've never seen this tactic applied with such granularity before. Of course, I've heard of "buy now before the price changes", but that traditionally means AFTER the SALE. Not, during the sale. Hmm. I can see this being implemented pretty much across every industry with an online shop. If anyone tries this, we would love to know how it works out.

Got a friend request from a stranger today. See image below. Note it says the person works at "Facebook and has the official title of "Facebook Online Lottery Claiming Agent." Hmm. I didn't know FB ran a lottery but who knows? One of the founders of twitter just donated 1/3rd of their stock to the employees. It wouldn't surprise me if they did, but I doubt it. I checked Google. There is a whole slew of references to the Facebook Lottery scam. So, if a strange asked to be friends on Facebook and they claim to an agent of the Facebook Lottery, just delete / report it to Facebook.
