In the past few weeks, I have posted several times on free genealogy sites or sites you can utilize to search for your family history on which are completely free. Today I want to go over an exciting new platform which is not only a free resource for your research, but could also actually earn you money!
Now how cool is that? You could actually get paid just for researching your family tree! So what is the hype I am referring to?
WebTalk is a brand new social media platform which is still in the beta phase.
What Exactly Is WebTalk?
WebTalk is a new social media platform with a unique twist. But before I get into that, let’s just discuss exactly what WebTalk is.
WebTalk was founded by RJ Garbowicz and has a patent pending Social CRM. This allows you to control your social life! You can segregate a contact by friend, colleague, family or a combination of all three if you need to.
Some other key aspects of the platform are as follows:
- Built-In Micro-CRM for Dealmakers
- Readymade Built-In Groups, Newsfeed Channels & Privacy
- Ability to add Searchable Keyword Tags (sub-groups)
- You can add Searchable time-stamped Notes
- Put in values so you can see the stuff from those that matter most
- A contacts page which has a built-in rolodex
- A feature I personally love! – with WebTalk you control your newsfeed. you can post to your professional newsfeed, personal newsfeed or private group channels!
- Posting to the public is a blog feature
- Allows you to obtain recommendations to help promote your status
In Depth Look At Some Features
Now that we have a basic understanding of what WebTalk is, let’s take a closer look at some features. One that really stands out to me is the blog like feature for public posts.
What exactly does that mean? Well when you post something on WebTalk as a public post, it is a post just like a blog post and is searchable within the search engines. If someone clicks the link to read your post, then they’ll be taken to a sign up page with a picture of you showing. If they sign up, then you’ll receive credit for the referral!
How cool is that!
Another feature that really stands out is the ability to have separate newsfeeds and to control what you see on them. I don’t know about any of you, but I personally get annoyed with some aspects of Facebook like lack of control over my newsfeed. It is so annoying that it shows me posts from people I never interact with and yet, it doesn’t show me posts from my closest friends and family until sometimes days after they are posted!
The ability to place values on your contacts so that what you care about most is a truly exciting feature!
Revenue Sharing & Bonus
I mentioned at the beginning WebTalk is a new social media site which has a unique twist to other social media platforms. Well, that twist is they are actually going to share the revenues they earn with the referrals to the network!
During the beta testing phase all referrals, meaning those who joined prior to launch, will earn up to 50% of revenues earned once the platform launches!
The compensation is for 5 tiers. It is set-up similar to an MLM, except that you don’t actually have to pay for anything! It is 100% free to join. There are opportunities to upgrade your account should you choose to, but it isn’t necessary. You will earn compensation for 5 tiers of your down-line just by joining and referring!!
Only those who join in beta phase will be eligible to get the compensation for 5 tiers!
A video from the founder
Naturally people will refer others to something they use. We all do it all the time. Hey did you see that new movie? I recently saw Venom at the theater and recommended it to several people…and I didn’t even get paid for it! With WebTalk, you can refer people with your free account and earn money for something you would do anyways.
Free Genealogy Site
Now you are probably wondering how this relates to genealogy. Well the answer is that WebTalk is yet another free platform you can use to research your family history and find people online for free!
Social media is a huge asset for a researcher. I see posts all the time when someone finds a loved one after many years like children that were adopted finding their biological parents through social media.
The power of social media is intense! Use it to your advantage. Use the platform for your research and do what people naturally do and refer others to the site! You can use the public blog post feature to post about relatives you are looking for or genealogy questions and get referrals from people clicking your links.
What do you have to lose? It’s free to join with no credit card information needed. The only catch is that you have to set up your profile 100% in order to be eligible for the revenue sharing program. You have to make sure your profile is set up with accurate information for your work and education, your real name, location, language preference and a little bio about yourself.
For just a few minutes of your time setting up your profile, you could get 50% revenue sharing for life from your referrals and their referrals and so on for 5 whole generations!
How Do You earn Commissions?
You are probably now wondering how exactly you are getting money from a free site. Facebook reported $10 billion in Q3 of 2017 from advertising revenues. WebTalk is setting out to become the next Facebook. When the platform takes off, they are going to share the revenue dollars with those that promote the site and help it grow!
So by referring people to a free account, you’ll earn some money in the process. Sign up and take a look around. See if it is for you or not and if it is, refer your friends and family! Research shows about 1 in 20 people, about 5%, will upgrade to a higher level (paid) account. This means earnings in your pocket!
The picture shows how earnings are made.
WebTalk – The Social Media Site That Pays You To Research!
Join WebTalk and do what you do naturally….socialize online and refer your friends and family. It’s really that simple. Sign up for a free account during beta and get paid for 5 tiers of your down-line. sign up after launch and you’ll still get paid 10% for your direct referrals. It’s a win-win!
You can utilize the website to complete your genealogy research, communicate with friends and relatives, post humorous photos, recipes, etc. and get some spare change to boot!
