Current: An App That Will Reward You Up To $600 for Doing What You Already Do Each Day

Published

on

Recently, reward applications have become a trend in app stores as “side hustle” culture has grown. Unfortunately, a lot of these reward apps have a habit of feeling very “spammy”, and it is quite challenging to find one that not only offers a decent user experience but also has legitimate rewards. Fortunately for all of us side-hustlers, there is an app that’s actually worth its salt.

Current is one of the leading apps in the streaming space for the fact that they have found a way to reward consumers for simply streaming their favorite music. While there are ways to earn a bit faster by completing surveys or other small tasks, you can still earn up to $600 a year by just listening to music like you usually do. Completing any of the other tasks is completely optional.

This is awesome because rewards apps usually are constantly interfering with the experience of the user popping out ads at the most unpredictable and inconvenient moments. Pop up ads are perhaps one of the most annoying features an app can have, and Current is gloriously free of any of these. People don’t want to be forced to do something, and Current makes it so if a user engages with an ad, then they did so on purpose, not because they accidentally tapped the screen at the wrong time.

Current is an app that doesn’t require you to change anything in your lifestyle. The only thing that Current needs a user to do is to download the app and stream their music just as they always would. Nothing in their daily life changes besides the fact that they now earn rewards while streaming their music.

So just how does this work exactly?

Simple. First, a person needs to download the Current app from either the Apple App Store or Google Play. Next, they create an account within the app, and right after signing up, the user is given a digital wallet. This is where the rewards will stack up and be collected. Lastly, stream your favorite music through your favorite music platforms and begin earning rewards as you stream!

Stream culture has taken the world by storm. Forget cable and forget the radio.  Now people have the ability to listen and watch what they want when they want. It’s no question why people have made such a giant shift to music/video streaming. Since it’s so new, there are many things that could be improved, and that’s just what Current has done.

  • 80% users follow one or more brands
  • 400 million daily active story users (A feature first introduced by Snapchat and then Instagram adopted the same feature but now as of 2018 Instagram has more Story users than Snapchat).

There is a huge potential for businesses and influencers over Instagram. A huge fan base is must for a social media influencer. When facebook lowered down the pages reach a lot of people social media celebrities and business moved to instagram, but what instagram did was no less than a worst nightmare, they also lowered down the reach.No one knows how these big giants e.g. Google, Facebook and Instagram algorithms work, but influencers and growth hackers are trying to finds new ways to increase their account’s reach and helping businesses do the same.

Everyone starts from Zero, if you are the ONE, then these secret hacks may help you increase your instagram posts reach and go viral overnight.

We are talking about Instagram Comments, Yes If used in the right way, Instagram Comments can help you grow your Instagram Business and Personal Profile in no time.

1. Power Comments

This is a new technique and it’s being used by a lot of people & influencers these days. So let’s dive into it and learn about it how it really works, First off create a group of people that all comment and like each other’s pictures every time a post happens. You can add up to 32 in a Direct Message Group. Every time you post a picture you say POSTED in the group and all other people will like and comment on your picture, this is a fantastic way to do it because you  can start a bunch of groups and you start getting a hundred comments and likes on a picture and this way engagement will increase and you will game the Instagram algorithm and Finally you post is going to end up on Explore page of Instagram and you will get a lot of followers and likes organically.

2. #Captions

Keep your captions short and sweet, write a valuable caption. Don’t just say here’s my picture, use every single character you’re allowed to use and say something inspirational so that when somebody sees your pictures it’s not just a picture it’s actually something valuable they can read and then comment on because of the caption.This way you give them twice as many things and reasons to actually comment below because there’s a picture they have a reason to comment on the picture about the picture.

3. Fill in the Blanks

Every time you make a post in the caption use something that has blank space such as “your favorite food is …….?”  People are going to comment because they want to answer and it’s also going to add a comment below.

4. Post Funny Photos

Post a funny picture and ask your audience to suggest a caption for the picture and the best caption poster will be given a free shoutout. This is the practice to increase engagements on your posts.

5. Ask Questions

Keep asking questions in captions or post picture that actually have questions in it like ‘how was your day?,  what have you eaten today?’. This way people will be more likely to answer the question.

6. Use #Hashtags

Every single time you post a picture, use hashtags, people are going to come on your pictures because of hashtags. When somebody first likes your picture inside of Instagram feed the problem is that, that might be the last time they like one of your picture so what you should do every time you see somebody liked the picture that you’ve never seen that person before you go to their profile and like first three latest picture and then comment on their picture, this brings in the law of reciprocity and this way you both are doing something for mutual benefits and increasing the likings of each other.

7. Automated Software

Using automated software which you probably heard, you use the software as what the software does is instead of you having to go like pictures all day and comment on pictures all day the software does it for you it takes your profile stays within the guidelines of Instagram so it doesn’t harm your account and it actually comments hundreds of times a day on pictures according to the half size you choose in your niche and the like thousands of pictures a day what’s this do or this put you inside the newsfeed of thousands of people a day bringing thousands of people to your profile they can follow you.

5 Tips to avoid scams on classified ad sites

Published

on

Each of us has visited a classified ads site at least once in their lifetime, attracted by inviting prices regarding second-hand products and certainly by asking the following questions:
Can I trust the seller? Will the goods have any defects? Is the product really the one in the picture? Wow very low price! Could it be a scam?
You know, in the web, as in life you have to follow some simple rules to avoid incurring unpleasant situations.
Today we are with Gianmario De Simone, CEO and founder of QIQI MART (network of classified ad sites ) and will help us to understand, in 5 simple steps, how to approach buying items on classified ad sites and avoid scams.

Tip Number 1
CHECK THE PRICE
In the event that we see an interesting product, first of all we must always evaluate the real market value of the product we are examining.
For example, if we see a smartphone that in the store has a current value of 500 at a price of 100, something does not square. The smartphone might be true, but it could generally present some technical problems.
Usually a second-hand product, in excellent condition (like new), has a value that is around 50% (maximum) less than the current market value. When the difference between the actual price and the proposed price is excessive, it is possible that you have stumbled upon a scam.

Tip Number 2
CHECK THE PHOTOS
The second advice we give is to always check the veracity of the images.
To do it’s easy, just drag the image on search images services of most common search engines (Google) and you’re done!
In the event that the photo has been cloned from other sites, the classified ad has a high chance of not being genuine.

Tip Number 3
IN THE SAME COUNTRY
Always make sure that the product you are interested in, is in your country and that the seller’s phone number is from your same nation. Avoid buying products from foreign sellers and goods outside your national borders, because in the case of fraud it will be more difficult (or impossible) to get a refund.

Tip Number 4
SAVE CONVERSATIONS
When you contact the seller, do it via email or especially via smartphone messaging services, in this way you will have a copy of the conversations that will be useful, to store information about the seller and the product.
In the event that the seller is a professional retailer, make sure that the company is present on search engines and that the phone number matches the one shown on the ad.

Tip Number 5
TRACKABLE PAYMENTS
Remember (if it is possible) to personally view the goods you are interested in. Don’t send money in advance but try to conclude the transactions only in first person and especially after having seen in your hands the product that you will have to buy.
In any case, remember that the best payment methods are those that can be traced! Choose only payment methods tracked (PayPal / Hype / Payment through the bank) and always avoid money transfers!
In conclusion, remember that observing these 5 rules, you will have no problem in buying second-hand items and visit professional classifieds sites such as QIQI MART ( www.qiqimart.org ), where there is a technical assistance ready to help you.
