Simply tag all the brands (make up, jewelry, clothes, things in the background) that you’re wearing in the picture,and if anyone clicks through to buy one of the products you get a cut of the profit. Sizable social media presence is helpful and users get paid every time they reach $40.


  • Viggle (iOS, Android, & Windows) “Check in” whenever you plan on watching t.v. or listening to music. The app is paying to simply monitor your habits.
