PointsPrizes is a website which allows users to earn free gift cards by completing paid surveys, doing offers and watching specially incentivized video advertisements. Our brand has grown to become one of the most trusted rewards platforms on the web.
However, some exceptional users are successfully earning significantly more the average user, through our Affiliate Program.
Before you get too excited though, I want to emphasise that these are exceptional results, requiring determination as well as a viable strategy.
In this article I will give you a sneak peak at the earnings of top affiliates, and some insights into how they managed to earn so much!
Probably the best thing about the PointsPrizes Affiliate Program is that anyone, no matter which country they live in, has equal prospects for success!
Country: United Kingdom, $2154
Country: Brazil, $567
Country: Peru, $1616
Obviously every affiliate uses a slightly different strategy, but over the years I've grown to recognize some consistent themes and approaches.
Contrary to frequent rumors, none of the examples I showed are from top YouTubers or Instagram influencers. These are ordinary users who took some time, to think carefully about how to promote their referral links.
Everyone loves the idea of earning free gift cards, so there are plenty of different audiences you can try to appeal to.
Some affiliates create communities based on different games they are interested in. For example, Minecraft, Fortnite, PUBG and Roblox are very popular games right now. These gaming affiliates make it fun, make friends and inspire trust.
For others their niche is purely about making money online. In that case they focus on getting their followers excited about different programs such as PointsPrizes. Showing proof of earnings and teaching people the best earning methods is the key to success for these affiliates.
It doesn't necessarily matter which niche you choose, since affiliates do well in all niches. Overall it's better to be part of something, rather than just being another stranger sharing referral links.
Social media is a great levelling force for people on the internet, since your voice counts equally no matter where you are from. Affiliates use social media as a home for their communities by establishing groups, pages and community forums.
If you invest your time wisely, then you can earn money in the future without investing any more time. It's eventually a lot better than charging per hour for your time. That's the basic concept of residual income.
Most of our affiliates understand this concept quite well. They create videos, write articles and grow communities. Over time this content starts attracting a regular flow of internet traffic into their referral links. They have very little work required to maintain the content they already created, and they can expend their energy into making new content and increasing their earnings.
