The product scrutinised in this review is Get Paid Social. When I review ‘make money online’ products, I find that 80% of programs are disappointing or worse. Get Paid Social falls into the second group.
The old 80/20 principle applies here too. 80% of online ‘opportunities’ often produce only 20% of what they promise. In some cases they don’t even do that! Sad but true. So what made me give this one such a low score? Well it wasn’t just the low pay.
Get Paid. Social
Owner; Jeff Long.
What Is Get Paid. Social?
Get Paid Social (GPS) is presented as “A Ground Floor Opportunity With Exciting Potential”.
I guess the exciting part is that you think you might get paid for social media jobs or maybe get paid to do social media marketing or maybe just get paid for being social.
Well Get Paid. Social is not quite like that.
At Get Paid Social you perform some small tasks online for some even smaller payments.
The Facebook Fanpage seems to be the only place to get real information about Get Paid Social. All websites are simply Affiliates promoting the system. There is no official website, anymore. The owner is quite difficult to track down too.
How does Get Paid Social Work?
- Pay $100.00 for membership
- Visit A Website
- Share A post On Facebook
- Actively advertise Get Paid Social on social media
- Join ‘Pools’ of Advertisers for a ‘chance’ to recruit new members
How Much Money Can You Earn?
Get Paid Social payments are low, low, low.
The 2 top paying tasks at Get Paid Social are $0.25 each.
- Fill out a survey
- Post a Get Paid Ad On Craigslist
It is free to advertise on Craigslist but you need to create an account, find the right listings, write the ad, publish the ad, maybe edit the ad and verify your email address…all for 25 cents.
I guess if you are organised and fast you could make money by this method.
If I take 2 minute to post an ad on Craigslist , in one hour I can earn 30 x $0.25 = $7.50.
If I like to do Zombie work I could do this all day long and make a fortune, maybe.
Or maybe you want easier work?
Like a facebook page for $0.005
Read that again. $0.005.
Not 5 cents but some other tiny amount that is so small I don’t even know what to call it!
OK, if I like 100 pages I get 50 cents. Hmmm. I guess if you are on Facebook all day anyway, you might be able to handle the pressure!
But you can’t ‘like’ whatever you like. You have to like the Get Paid Social stuff, OK.
What else do they offer….
Like a Fb post for $0.01
Share a Fb post $0.10
Visit a Website $0.02
Watch a Video $0.05
Fill out a Form $0.10
Retweet Get Paid Social stuff $0.10
Share on G+ $0.10
I say this is not sustainable for sane people, you may even go insane this way. And besides, you are better than that. You are capable of so much more than advertising shonky businesses for peanuts.
Can anyone do Get Paid Social?
Yes. Even a chimpanzee could do this. But a chimp would not pay the one off lifetime membership price of $100 to do so. They are not that silly.
BUT…. You will be screened before each task is set. If you don’t qualify for the task you don’t earn any money. The screening asks for your demographic details i.e; sex, age, location, ethnicity, income level, education, religion, etc. etc.
There are reports of people spending 10 – 15 minutes answering the many screening questions before being told they do not qualify. This same problem exists with many of the online paid surveys too.
How many tasks do you get?
As time goes on you will receive minimal task opportunities and some circumstances you will never qualify for any tasks. So you could end up paying to waste a bucket load of time.
What About Support From Get Paid Social?
Members are reporting that technical difficulties have been a problem with the actual task system.The support desk is very slow to respond and seem to have trouble correcting the malfunctions.
The founder has been keeping members updated about the problems. In January 2016 he actually told members to “ please just let us do our thing, don’t bog us down with complaints…we KNOW what needs to be worked on and we’re working on it.” Read his full reply below.
The main complaint about Get Paid Social
You don’t Get Paid!!!
And yet, it is still being promoted by affiliates and on the Facebook Fanpage and by all the Craigslist ads and Tweets and Shares and Likes.
It is a social media snowball that is difficult to stop. Unfortunately, new people are still being exposed to the scam every day.
I’m telling you here and now, do not pay to do online surveys, ever.
Jeff Long has reassured members waiting for overdue payments about;
- The progress on the internal problems.
- The problems are being worked on.
- They are getting ‘ready’ to pay out monies.
- New income opportunities are coming
- Coming Soon, A New and Exciting Opportunity which solves the problems associated with ‘Get Paid Social’.
- Introducing MOMA, My Online Marketing Agency
The Official Jeff Long response to complaints about tech problems and payment issues.. posted on Facebook January 12, 2016
A new, exciting and productive week is upon us! I and my entire corporate team here have been locked in a room all day going over absolutely every aspect of this system, the community, the technology, our vision and putting a plan of action in place to make this the BEST it can be!
I’m aware of the server problems and am ALL OVER IT. I am shocked to say that we have ALREADY (in just less than 30 days) out grown the already MONSTER server we have and are in the process of adding ANOTHER server to the platform giving us more capacity.
We are almost at 100,000 members my friends…that is AMAZING! We are growing like CRAZY, people are MAKING MONEY, tasks are being added DAILY and things are just really getting exciting.
One thing I wanted to tell you and let you know is that right now SUPPORT IS MY #1 PRIORITY FOR YOU RIGHT NOW!!! I’m in the process of streamlining our entire support process, systems and team. I apologize for the long delays getting your support issues handled and I PROMISE you, we WILL get to EVERY SINGLE OUTSTANDING SUPPORT ISSUE THIS WEEK!
BIG things are about to happen but before I implement them, I want to make sure ALL outstanding support issues are handled and the CURRENT technology is 100% working and functional 🙂
I am the team are going to be SLAMMED the next 2 weeks, so please just let us do our thing, don’t bog us down with complaints…we KNOW what needs to be worked on and we’re working on it.
Stay very tuned, don’t go anywhere and your patience will pay off 100 fold soon…I am so freaken excited for all of us!
Your Fearless Leader,
Sadly there are still New Member Complaints on Facebook about non payment.
This one from November 8, 2016.
Dsouza Louis Hello Mr. Jeff,
my name is louis dsouza and I am one of the paid member of Get Paid Social. Since I have joined and then became a paid member by paying $97.00 Get Paid social receipt [#2701-5442].
I am a very poor guy but you know William Colwell 3157785278, recommended to join as he promised me the future of GPS will be promising. and I joined.
I requested twice for payouts on
2417paypal$43.50$2.182016-04-06 11:42:36Requested/Pending1855paypal$35.00$1.752016-03-15 05:27:09Requested/Pending
but I was not paid and since I see GPS went down and down but I never left hope because $97.00 is a big amount for me.
I am still doing the tasks and at present my wallet shows Rewards Earned To Date$83.96.
I tried to contact many times but no answer from your side and this is my last hope but I will be doing all the tasks till the last day GPS is posting tasks in it.
Hope you will consider this email and do the needful to pay me my earned commissions.
What You Should Know About Jeff Long’s newest opportunity MOMA?
Please read through all I have written above and substitute Get Paid Social with MOMA and you will basically know all about Jeff Long’s new and exciting opportunity called MOMA.
It appears that MOMA is the exact same business model as Get Paid Social.
My final opinion on Get Paid Social (and MOMA)
Until Get Paid Social irons out its technical difficulties, the system is not worth wasting any time on. Even when it operates smoothly, you are probably just exchanging your precious time for piddling cents.
Task based ‘jobs’ like this are available all over the internet, most often they are surveys. As mentioned above, you will often be culled in the screening process, anyway.
Try to calculate how many tasks @$0.005 it will take before you earn back your $100 life time membership investment.
My strong opinion is never, ever pay money to do surveys. There are tons of free surveys to do, if you must. Find out more about paid surveys and other online jobs for people with no experience here.
