Influence is a free mobile app for Android and Apple that allows users to earn small amounts of money. Via the app you short submit video responses to questions such as; “What do you think of the Waitrose brand?” The video can be a maximum of one minute long and you get paid a small amount of money, with the Waitrose example I received 25p.
The service is open to individuals in these regions; UK, USA, and Australia. You can read more details on the listing page.
The app also has an affiliate program. Each new person you invite will receive £1, and you will also receive £1.
Here’s a brief user review of the app and it’s program.
Having tried quite a few different mobile apps that are reported to make you a bit of extra money, this is the only one I’ve stuck with. It’s easy to use, most of the questions are interesting to answer and the minimum payout is only £10. I’ve found it a lot better than rival money-making apps which in my experience took a lot longer and you earned a lot less money.
You can also make money as an affiliate of Influence by referring new members. For every person you refer you’ll receive £1. In order to receive your £1 the person must download Influence and upload one video response. This is very easy to do because when you first download it you get 50p just for telling them where you discovered the app. This means you have a chance of achieving high conversion rates if you highly target who you promote it to.
The minimum payout is only £10. Meaning if you’re good at getting people to join you can earn get a first payment fairly quickly. All payments are via PayPal. From my research and experience so far you can average quite a few video surveys per week if you are fast to respond, meaning if you struggle to refer people you may still be able to make a bit of money.
If you’re good at referring new users, whether they be friends/family or people you don’t know by using blogs or forums or whatever method you choose, you could potentially make a lot more money than most users who only answer video questions.
Guide to Getting Referral Link
Here’s how to go about getting your code to refer new members and rack up some commissions.
UPDATE: you now need to search for “Influence”.
First you need to download the app from whichever store you use – Google Play or iOS. I use Android, this is how the listing looks, type ‘Voxpopme’ in to Google Play to find it. Alternatively click here for their website with more details.
Do your first video upload to tell them why you joined the service and instantly earn yourself 50p, a nice way to get the ball rolling for incredibly little time or effort.
Then go to the ‘Invite’ section using the top menu, it should look like this, click on the ‘Invite Friends’ button to choose a method.
Pick the method you want to use, tweets and WhatsApp are very quick ways to try and get people interested. If you are a blogger or need the regular link for any kind of online promotion I use the ‘Copy to clipboard’ option and then you can paste it wherever you need to.
Would I Recommend This?
Overall I would recommend the Influence app as a good way to earn a tiny bit of extra money for very little effort, it’s also good fun, and if you are an effective affiliate you can definitely make some extra money referring new users! I’ve now been paid multiple times by Influence with no problems, with the payments coming in quickly, always within a few days.
