Vindale Referrals: No Deadheads!

Another question that I am constantly asked on Vindale is why I don’t lead with telling friends and prospectives about the $5 Referral program

The answer starts with my belief that you should know a site thoroughly before you start referring ANYONE to it.

The next thing is that you should be able to HELP anyone who joins you in any site. Ideally, you should learn the site yourself first and then start referring people confidently. If not, you probably will not be successful.

I have tons of people who join but never do anything. They're deadheads. They haven't taken the time to learn the site. They haven't even finished filling out their profile or doing anything on the site. I find that many people want to join and immediately go and get their referral link before doing anything on the site. This does not work and it will lead to very early frustration!

Let's be honest! Vindale is very clear about how they will credit a referral. They WILL NOT credit just anybody who joins the site using your link. The person has to be genuinely interested in joining the community which means that these other requirements will also have to be met (for anyone to receive $5 for a referral):

1) The referral must complete their profile.
2) The referral must complete at least one survey or study.

For me, this makes sense. Vindale is paying you to refer people who can actually add something to their site, program and community and not for just deadheads who join the site for some type of incentive. This kind of behavior does nothing for a company’s bottom line.

Here's the company's tutorial that can help you learn and navigate around the homepage:

The gist of this post is simple: Learn the site, interact, share the site and make some money.

Vindale Questions and Answers (My FAQs)

This post is designed to cover the questions that I get online or via e-mail regarding Vindale. It's one of my favorite and one of the best money-making sites online where you can earn for FREE. It's great for beginners or anyone who wants to add an additional side hustle or income.

I have written an extensive post about Vindale here:

My plan is to continue to update that page with important info as it is released from the site!

Today, I just want to focus on the 5 questions that I get from referrals or prospects almost everyday.

1) How do I cash-out at Vindale?

I created a short and sweet video to help all who may be lost or just can't seem to find the information on the site. Oh and yes, today is payday so congrats to all who received Vindale payment notices like this today:

That's always a good feeling, isn't it? But, I can do even a little better. This notice came from paypal about 15 minutes later!

Now, that's not too shabby. A bill can be paid with that.
Watch the video to find out how to get your cash!

UPDATE: 6/2016: My video was removed due to a copyright conflict (I used actual footage from the site which is a no-no in the internet world without written permission----Sorry Vindale!)

Once you have explored the site, finding this information is quite simple but I am always willing to share the information for anyone who needs it.

2) Where's this blog (that you're always talking about)?

I think the blog is one of the most important areas of the site. I always say that it's the gold box that's located on the right side. Here's a visual:

As you can see, there is the account balance that shows your verified earnings up until this point ( I took this screenshot a couple of days ago). Then, you see some preliminary information on how you can earn more (this is definitely for newbies----it's apparent by the first line: verify your e-mail). Then, the next box, you can click to learn about your referrals and lastly, there is the gold box---which is where the blog is located and it's a wealth of information.

3) What's up with my referrals? I only been credited with 2 out of my 4 referrals?

Vindale will only credit you for active referrals, which means that your referral needs to:

1) Join (of course) through your referral link. It looks like this:

2) Complete their profile (Vindale offers a $2 incentive to everyone for fully completing their profile).

3) Lastly, complete at least one survey or study. 

These activities show that these individuals are serious about joining the site and becoming a part of the community.

4) Where are these (supposedly) easy daily questions?

They are located in the blog area in the center area as well as listed on the side. Once I click, the gold box (from above), the blog page opens and you will see all sorts of fun boxes and links to click on, just look for the Daily Question and click and answer. You don't want to get to the end of a pay cycle and be a $1 or $2 short. Those questions add up and can be just you need to get you over the top! 

Today's daily question:

Quick tip: Always keep track of your wins and check to make sure you are being properly credited. They are human too and sometimes a contest win might be missed but they are quick to credit it and resolve the situation (so no reason to despair).

5) How can I make more with Vindale?

a) Look for more opportunities in the blog. 
  • I have been the member of the month. 
  • I have gotten paid for sending a picture of myself with a payment.
  • I have won all types of contests (newsletter, captions, photos).
  • Answer the daily questions, be creative and insightful and start earning from that (Remember, it adds up!)
  • They even have resources in the blog for other ways to make money besides Vindale.
  • After you have a decent grasp of the site, refer people and earn $5 per active referral. I believe that if you promote it, you should be able to answer questions and help people as well and as needed. Most people will give up without support.
  • Have fun and do surveys that make sense for your time! Today, I saw surveys for as little as 30 cents and as high as $5. Surveys fill up fast so don't be surprised if you don't get through. For me, I'm not going to do a 30 cent survey for 10 minutes but I may do a 15 minute survey for $2.75. If I'm home and watching tv anyway, I may do more that will at least pay $1 and above. You will need to work out the strategy that works best for you.

Well, that's it for now. I hope that I have given you a few nuggets to help you excel at Vindale! Happy Earnings for now and as always, if you have any questions, please leave a comment, a message or an e-mail.
