This review is going to be about a website called Rewarding Ways. What is Rewarding Ways? Is it a scam? Or a legitimate opportunity for you to invest your time and make money? These are some of the questions that we will be focusing on in this review.
Alright without further ado, let’s get things rolling…
Name: Rewarding Ways
Owner: 99 Ventured Limited
Price: Free to join
What is Rewarding Ways all about?
Rewarding Ways is a get paid to(GPT) site where one can make money by completing small tasks including surveys, offers and referring people. It’s good to see that rewarding Ways has been around since 2010, this definitely gives us an indication that these guys are in for the long haul and hence, must be legit.
Although Rewarding Ways is free to join and allows you to make money, I am still not a big fan of them. I personally registered an account with them and tried it for over a month. The earning potential is horrendous. I didn’t even manage to make $1 within this period. Not because I didn’t do anything. It’s because I wasn’t able to do them.
I will go into more details about my experience and the reasons why I will not recommend this site to anyone as we go along.
Issues With Rewarding Ways Earning Opportunities
(1) Makes Earning Money Through Referrals very Easy
According to Rewarding Ways, one of the most lucrative ways to make money with them is to refer as many people as you can to their website. It is said that you will earn 25% of everything your referrals earn through Rewardingways.com
For instance, if one of you referrals makes $10… you will get $2.50 from it.
Seems easy right? Just bring in referrals and you can make money!
Unfortunately, it’s not…
They mentioned on their website that some of their top earners are making over $100 every week just by referring people. Although it is possible, I am still not buying into that because it doesn’t seem realistic at all. You have to understand that you don’t make money simply by referring someone. You only make money when that particular person spends time and complete tasks.
Completing tasks is one thing. But most tasks you see on their website will not be available for you to do for some reason. Other tasks that work, are almost worth nothing. For e.g. Clicking on Ads pays you only around $0.001 and furthermore, there isn’t many to click also.
The other issue I have is there isn’t any proper training on how to bring in referrals. You can’t expect to bring in one or two referrals every month and expect to make some decent income. You will need to consistently bring in hundreds of referrals every week to get things rolling.
The referrals tips shared on their website isn’t enough to make you any money. Seriously…
Sharing to your family and friends through email, posting on social media and forums are not the most effective methods to get referrals. It’s more of just a waste of time if you ask me. How do I know? I have been there and done that!
If you really want to get a good amount of referrals, you will need to think outside the box and put in more effort such as creating YouTube videos, blogs, ads, join traffic exchange sites and etc. to drive traffic to your referral link. Even then, like I mentioned earlier, bringing in referrals doesn’t guarantee you any money until your referrals are really committed.
Most referrals come with the mindset to make a decent amount of money, but once they tried Rewarding Ways for themselves, they will soon realize that this is nothing but a waste of time.
(2) Unable to Qualify for Any Surveys
More than 50% of Rewarding Ways is actually made up with survey. Some are in-house while most are from third party sites.
You could see from the above image that they “seem” to pay well for each surveys. Most are ranged from $0.50 – $1.00, while some are even more. Not once or twice did I click on this surveys… I clicked over hundreds of times over the past month and not even once I manage to complete a survey.
The above is a snippet of what always happen to me when I try to do a survey. Basically, I spend 5 to 10 minutes answering some pre-qualifying questions. After that, every single time they end up telling me that I did not meet the criteria to qualify for their surveys.
Completing surveys are the core of GPT sites because the rewarding value is much higher than most tasks out there. Since I am not able to complete a single survey, how on earth am I even going to make a decent amount of money. This is one of the main reasons why I never liked paid surveys or GPT sites. They take your personal details such as postal code, contact details and end up telling you, you didn’t qualify for anything.
(3) Offers Are Mainly Geographical Based
Seems like besides referring people and clicks on ads, I am unable to do anything else. They are tons of tasks to complete but every one of them I click shows me the same thing. “Sorry, the offer you clicked in not available in your location”.
Definitely seem biased to me. Or maybe it is a way to hide the truth that there are no offers to complete in the first place. I wouldn’t rule out that opinion because from the looks of things that is exactly what is happening. Just imagine, if everybody completes an offer and get paid about $0.50 on average, this company will end up losing money. No company out there runs for free, their real intention is to make profits for themselves.
My Final Thoughts.
Although there is potential to make some money here, I am going to pass this opportunity simply because it’s a waste of time. You are literally exchanging hours and hours of your time just to earn pennies. Totally not worth it if you ask me! I would have been happy if I were to qualify for the surveys and offers but that doesn’t seem like it is going to happen at all.
I believe your time can be put to better use than spending on a site like Rewarding Ways. Seems to me like just full of hype. I checked out their Facebook Page, they had over 40,000 likes but almost no interaction at all. I won’t be surprised if they bought those likes from places like Fiverr just to give it a credibility boost.
Those of you who are looking for opportunities to make money online, Rewarding Ways definitely isn’t one of them. Sooner of later, you will eventually get frustrated and quit yourself. Instead of going through that hassle for yourself, take mine as a learning experience and avoid it right from the start.
Final Verdict: Legit, But Not Recommended
Safe & Solid Way To Make Money Online?
For those of you who are still keen in generating good income online, I highly recommend that you start your own online business. This is a really safe and solid opportunity because you don’t depend on anybody but yourself. You don’t have to worry about qualifying for anything or websites not paying you.
So… what do I mean by online business?
There are many ways of running your very own online business. Selling your own products or running an e-commerce store are a few I can list from the top of my head. But the one that I have personally tried and am talking about is called Affiliate Marketing.
Affiliate Marketing means promoting someone else’s products/services and earn commissions from it. There are countless of benefits for this approach.
- You don’t need a huge capital to start
- Can be done from the comfort of your own home
- No need to physically get in contact with anyone. Everything is done through the internet.
- You don’t have to worry about what products to sell or storage space to put your products
- Definitely has more potential to make money compared to GPT sites
It’s really not difficult to get started. All you need is an interest or passion. If you have one, you can build a business around it. I have been doing this for just over a year and have seen more than just great success with it. This opportunity has allowed me to quit my day job and run this entirely from home and the best part…? My income is almost 3 times of what I earned in the corporate world.
Though it is nice to hear… I have to tell you that this didn’t happen overnight. I have put in a great amount of effort to make this work. If you are expecting to make tons of money within a week or month, sorry, this isn’t something for you. You have to put in the effort and give yourself enough time to see success in this.
I know some of you might be thinking right now, how do I get started without any proper understanding or knowledge about Affiliate Marketing & starting an online business. Don’t worry, I have got you covered. I have been using this program called Wealthy Affiliate. It’s an online training platform that teaches you from scratch to building an affiliate marketing business.
