It has been a while since I’ve posted about any alternative income streams. There is a new service called Brring! that allows you to get paid when your friends call. You play them a 10 second ad before the call forwards to you. Basically you set up a phone number with Brring! that forwards to your actual phone number but first plays the ad. You get paid $0.05 per call but right now they are paying $1.00 each for the first ten calls.
I’ve just signed up for the service so I can’t vouch for how well it works yet. Even though I’m a Tight Fisted Miser I consider it a little tacky to try to make money off my friends calling me. I plan to use this number for anybody other than friends and work. It will be nice to make some money off the telemarketers for a change. They are also paying $1.00 for each referral you invite. I’m going to give this service a try and if it doesn’t work than I’ll just stop using the number. If you’d like to try it you can sign up by clicking on the banner below.
