I discovered RedGage a few weeks ago and found it to be a very interesting internet site. They encourage you to put up links to articles that you have written on other sites, pictures, and original documents. The best part is that you can earn money with RedGage.
Things You Will NeedComputer, high speed internet, photos and article to share.
Sign up for an account
Signing up for an account is quick and easy. All you have to do is go to their internet site. Also if you include my username of pbartelssc as a referral you will be added to my friends' list automatically. If you sign up, send me a message on RedGage and I'll take a look at what you upload.
Setup your profile
Next it's a good idea to set up your profile. This is a site that calls itself a social networking site. You will be able to make friends and look at other people's articles and pictures. You will also be able to add your twitter account, if you have one, to promote your work. Just click on profile and this will take you to the profile page. You will see an edit profile selection. Click on this and set up your profile. There are tabs where you can set up basic information, contact, personal, education, work, sites, and a picture. Set up as little or as much as you think you want to disclose.
Uploading content is very easy. You will see the upload button next to the search on the top right hand side of the web page. This is a good site to make a little bit of money on pictures that you might have taken with your digital camera. I have hundreds of pictures on my computer. I don't put family pictures here, but I have a lot of pictures of animals, flowers, and scenery.
How you earn money
Your views ad up as people view your content. So each unique click will go towards earning you money. RedGage has a different way to pay their contributors. You receive payout once you earn $25.00. RedGage will send you a Visa Gift Card that you will use to receive your money. Each time you reach the $25.00 payout they will reload the gift card. You will be able to use the card at your grocery store or wherever you might spend money. I have been on RedGage about 3 weeks and have earned almost $4.00. If your lucky you might win one of their contests and that will give your earnings a boost.
This is a good site to join. I would suggest that you upload your content incrementally as each time you upload it generates views. People lose interest pretty quickly so it helps that you keep uploading so your pictures and articles get noticed.
