Helpful Hints about Qassia. Initially it's a race against the clock for money*.
Me on Qassia http://maureenmccabe.qassia.com/ I am using a different photo than the default tattoed tummy now.
1. Invite every one you know quickly (called referrals on Qassia.)
2. Don't worry about the tattoed tummy... (It's Maureen Francis... she said so) just send out referrals quick... once you have sent out a bunch of referrals worry about the belly image with the tattoo or don't. I am usually pretty pokey about profiles but the tattoed tummy made me put up a simple profile quick with another photo. I join social networks on reflex. Setting up the profile or participating is another story.
3. Twitter the referral link (your link) if you have followers on Twitter. I did.
4. Do an ActiveRain post providing some more info about Qassia with your Qassia link for your associates and subscribers. I did.
5. Post about Qassia on your local blog with your link. Qassia is NOT just real estate. Local bloggers and non bloggers ... anyone with an interest in Web 2.0, social media can use Qassia. I did not do this. I still should.
6. Set up emails with your Qassia link and refer everyone you know who is interested in Web 2.0. Unless you feel this is spamming.... I did it.
7. Read the info you need about how Qassia works, before joining if you will be reluctant to refer people unless you understand Qassia and can explain it... thats never stopped me. I did not know ActiveRain was blogging when I invited Maureen Francis, Bonnie Erickson, Elaine Reese, my manager and a bunch of blogging buddies
8. Add your blogs and websites to Qassia. I did. I added one website, two blogs and divided the Qassia money up among the sites. The Qassia directory, I will buy placement with my bucks... if I understand this correctly.
9. Don't worry about Qassia or any other sites if ActiveRain is all you need... don't even bother with a comment here thanks...
10. Remember Qassia is by invitation only! ;- )
*Right now the Qassia referrals accepted are worth 500 dollars for the first 12 hours YOU are a member. The second 12 hours you are a member the referrals are worth 200 dollars. The normal is only 100 dollars now. Like ActiveRain in the beginning Qassia probably will be changing what they give points dollars for.
I had no idea when I joined. I had to be out the door an hour later and would be gone about 9 hours. Even so I have made 6500 dollars now just by referring. That money is used to advertise the links... to my blogs and website.
