Need more referrals? Pre-Register for the 2018 30 Day Referral Challenge now!

One of the easiest ways to make money on sites such as Swagbucks, Prolific, InstaGC, Branded Surveys and more is to build up your referrals.

In most cases you'll earn a percentage of the earnings your referrals get, in some a set fee per referral.

Unfortunately, one of the biggest gripes over in my Facebook group for users of Get Paid To / survey sites is that it is so hard to get referrals. And it can be. Unless you develop a system.

I've been affiliate and referral marketing for over 25 years, although only in the past couple of years have I focused on GPT sites.

I've also run a number of 30 Day Challenges in the past - you can see the related publications here on Amazon and read my reviews.

With this in mind I've decided to combine the two areas of knowledge for 2018 with the launch of the 30 Day Referral Challenge.

If you're struggling to find referrals, this 30 day email course should help.

I'll cover writing ads and posts, finding places to gain referrals, 'out of the box' ways to get referrals, what not to do and more.

Each day for 30 days you'll receive an email with a 'lesson', a task and a preview of the next day's 'lesson'. You don't have to complete every task or even give feedback if you don't feel like it or don't have time - pick and choose the things you want to do.

I'm looking for people to test this out and at the end of it give feedback - it's completely free of charge, I won't use your email address for anything else or pass it on to anyone.

The first email lesson will go out on Monday January 1st 2018 - sign up below to be a part of the test group!

How about a Secret Santa Swago with Swagbucks? 300sb bonus for a full board!


Joining the board is now live!
You'll more than likely hate your Secret Santa present from the office Christmas party, but the digital rewards site Swagbucks is celebrating the Holidays with another big “Swago” promotion starting Monday, 4 December, at 5 PM GMT (9AM PT) and you're sure to get a Swagbuck present you'll love! This time filling in a full board is worth a fantastic 300 Swagbucks!
Swago is just like bingo, but in this case you’re filling out squares as you earn points on their site for doing things you already do online.  For each completed square you’ll also earn spins on the Spin & Win wheel!
If you’re thinking of trying Swagbucks, this is a great chance to learn all about how the site works and earn bonus points while doing it, meaning you can get more gift cards faster.
The board will be pretty similar to the usual 300sb boards; the squares people usually find difficult are the 'get a referral' and the 'activate the swagbutton' ones - read this and this to help complete them.

Click here to get started!

Here are a few tips:
  • Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. They can be anything from getting a search win, completing a survey, or just visiting one of our popular stores!
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have until 8pm GMT (12pm PT) on Monday, December 11th to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time sensibly.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value. Once you’ve achieved a pattern, the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.
  • Each activity you successfully complete on your Swago Board will give you anywhere from 1-20 spins on the Spin & Win Wheel. PLUS, when you submit your board for a bonus you’ll get additional spins. The number of spins will depend on the pattern you complete. The wheel has all sorts of great prizes that you can win, and each spin is a winner!
  • Struggling to tick off a square? Post in our Facebook group and ask for help - with 7000 members there's always someone to help.
The Spin & Win Wheel will be available all throughout Swago and you have until 7:59am GMT on Tuesday, December 12th (11:59pm PT on Monday, December 11th) to use all your spins.
Fill up your board and then submit your pattern to get even more points – if you can fill in the whole board, you get a 300 SB bonus, which goes a long way towards your first gift card from the retailer of your choice.

Click here and then click “Join” to get started!

If you don’t already have a Swagbucks account, you’ll be able to quickly sign up; PLUS, if you earn 300 SB before the first of next month, you’ll get a bonus 300 SB!
The Swago board ends on Monday, 11th December at 8 PM GMT (12PM PT).  Make sure you’ve submitted a pattern before then (but remember you can ONLY submit ONE pattern, so avoid premature submission!)

Get 500 bonus points when you sign up for Swagbucks in December



All throughout December you can earn large bonuses from Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you're probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, or PayPal cash. 

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a 500 SB bonus! Here's how: 

1. Sign up using this link 

2. Earn 300 SB total before 01/01/2018. You'll get a 300 SB bonus for it! 

3. If you spend at least £25 through Swagbucks Shop* you'll get another 200 SB bonus on top of the cash back you'll get from shopping. If you have some shopping to do online, just go to Swagbucks first and visit the store through them. It doesn't cost you anything extra, but you'll get SB points for every pound you spend (on top of the bonus)! I recommend using Just Eat if you get takeaways but don't wat to shop.

That's it. It's super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I've earned over £480 from it and other site in November alone. Over £3800 in 2017! 

*You must receive your shopping SB before 1 February


Sign up now then grab me on Facebook and I'll give you a few hints and tips to help you on your way!

Also Join our facebook group, where we help and support you to make the most of the sites you sign up to!

Making more space on the Vodafone Smart 7



Lots of people in our Facebook group are buying the Vodafone Smart First 7 Android phone in order to be able to get the 7 Swagbucks video apps and be able to earn  up to 140sb a day. It's also great if you want to be able to free up your main phone as the apps can take a few hours to run. At the time of writing the phone is just £14.99 so well worth it to make around £30 a month from the video apps.

I'll do a full review of this phone in a future blog post, but one of the main complaints is the lack of storage space on the phone, and with just 8gb of space, the seven Swagbucks apps pretty much max it out unless you delete some of the pre installed apps on the phone, which you really don't need (you won't want to use this phone as your main phone, trust me!)

But, thanks to the fab Bobbie Marie Kelloway in our Facebook group, we can show you a video of how to remove the things you don't need. Thanks Bobbie Marie! (You can show your appreciation to Bobbie Marie by joining Swagbucks via her referral link or thanking her in the group.)

Click here to view the video:


Once you've deleted all the extras, this really is a fab little phone for the price - I've managed to get all 7 Swagbucks apps, CC Cleaner, EngageMeTV app and still have room to spare.

Let us know how you got on in the Facebook group, and if you don't have the phone yet, buy it now to increase your earning power!

Why you should join the UK Swagbucks & More Facebook group

Many months ago I set up the Facebook group UK Swagbucks and more. Currently we have 6000+ members, all helping each other to make the most of Get Paid To sites such as Swagbucks, Mintvine, Prolific, InstaGC and more.

I love to see people tell us how the group has helped them, and in a lot of cases helped them make a life changing amount of money from these sites. An exaggeration? I really don't think so. Some people were making £5 every few weeks from sites such as Swagbucks and are now making a couple of hundred pounds a month. Some have found sites they never even knew existed before joining the group. Some use the group as a way to motivate and encourage themselves.

Don't take my word for it though, see what our members say:










So if you're looking for support, help, encouragement and hints, tips and ideas, come and join us now!
