There is a wide variety of web sites on the World Wide Web where users can post their own images, drawings, photos, graphics, etc., after registration.
Somewhere people just show off their work, on some resources they sell them, and some services are designed to make a more or less stable profit for a long time, and the income here is passive. The representative of such an Internet project is Photo2you photo hosting.
It is noteworthy, first of all, by its plainness, simplicity of registration, sufficient functionality, profitability and free of charge. Anyone who wishes is able to upload images that comply with the rules of the system and consistently receive money every time they are viewed by other users on the Web.
In this article you will definitely learn all the features of the service, learn how to use it, and, most importantly, master the art of making money on it in several ways.
Well, let's start.
Photo hosting site was founded a little over 8 years ago. It functions with periodic successes and recessions, apparently due to the frequent rotation of the executive office. Each owner, so to speak, introduces new rules. Some of them are progressively developing the project, others - it is used to the maximum as a “cash cow”, absolutely not caring about precious users. The current situation has stabilized. So the site regularly pays the earned sums, moderators work efficiently, and new visitors and participants come here more and more.
Now the daily attendance of the platform varies between 645-897 people. The big difference is due to working days and weekends, in which, of course, people spend more time on the Global Network. There are approximately 23,450 registered users.
Regarding the site itself, there are a few points to note. A little running ahead, I want to first of all note the clarity and simplicity of the entire interface, which is now so rarely to meet. Nothing extra. The absence of distracting advertisements, flickering windows, buttons with bright colors, inappropriate pictures and other trash makes you feel at work. All texts, explanations or instructions are extremely concise and capacious in meaning.
The loading of images and pictures is well explained. There is an option to batch upload photos. You can sort the files by thematic folders, which is convenient. Links to photographs and drawings, the system produces convenient, short, more or less human species, in contrast to similar photo hosting sites.
The pricing for Image2you is good, there is a fairly decent referral program and regular promotions are held, however, the details of these issues will be written in detail later.
Clearly, the site has a significant number of advantages that draw attention to themselves when they visit the main page and start registering . In order not to reason without reasoning, consider the available facts (basic):
- the ability to upload pictures directly from a computer or directly from the Internet, specifying the image ID. There is a multi-boot function up to 100 images at once;
Explanation! Multiboot is a convenient option when you need to add a lot of photos to the system. You upload the necessary files one by one to the convenient downloader module, then upload them to the project with one click and immediately get all your links! 51>
Perhaps we’ll stop here, otherwise the list can be replenished with many more points.
But there are worse things to minuses. I singled out three of them, however, all the negative qualities are very significant:
I think that I described the overall situation with these three flaws in full. So the service Image2you, in my opinion, is a weird crime of some kind. Although people get money to earn money here. For example, my friend from the social network VKontakte vigorously protects this project and shows me some nice screenshots of remittances from there.
By analogy with other photo hosting sites, the essence of making money on the Image2you site is the same. You can emphasize five main stages:
Essentially! Cash payments will be made exclusively for unique views. For example, if one of your relatives views one image 23 times a day, then only one unique display of a picture will be reckoned by the system. Only for this, money is charged!
Just before you make money, do not be lazy and carefully study the system conditions and rules governing the activities of the project.
You can get acquainted with them in two places:
The Regulation contains about ten items, of which it is necessary to remember the following four points:
Specification! There are specialized anonymizer programs that can change your computer’s IP address online in as many times as you like. So you can not use them!
If the above or other conditions and rules of the system are violated, project employees can permanently ban an account, with full write-off of earned money. Although the complaints are so complete that they do it for no reason. Well, now we are discussing other things on the plan.
I didn’t see a more simple and easy-to-understand interface here. After registration, and the introduction of credentials (login, email) in the control panel, you will find yourself on the main page of your personal account, from where you have access "in one click" to all the functional sections of the photo hosting site.
I will briefly run over them, since there are no internal submenus, and the names of the keys fully reflect their purpose. I will call the strip with buttons as it is.
1. The first menu level (the highest):
2.The second level of the menu (located immediately below the first line):
This is such a simple platform for making money on posting photos, drawings and other images.
To set up an account on photo hosting, you must perform ordinary, unwise actions:
Now, when you need it, you will be able to log into your own personal account and receive profit on the Image2you web project. ru.
The process of making money on a resource consists of 3 basic stages, which we will analyze in turn, not taking into account registration you passed.
1. In your account, go to the tab "Upload photos". Inside it, select the sub-item "Main folder", however, you will not have to choose, since this folder is the only one there. A special two-part loader module opens.
You will need its upper sector for downloading pictures from a computer. You will need to specify the path to the folder and just click "Download." Then to the picture you write a beautiful title and a short but attractive description. After that, it remains to click "Add to archive".
The lower sector is designed to transfer photos you like from various Internet structures (websites, portals, blogs, pages, etc.). You only need to specify the image ID. The copyright is not taken into account here, as you do not use the image directly or for financial purposes and do not copy it. You place it on a public hosting for public viewing, as an example of the good work of the author, but the fact that the system attaches advertising to it does not matter.
Nuance! Anyway, you can simultaneously download a package (up to 100 pieces per session) of pictures. Check out each file. Upload to the archive for moderation and immediately start uploading new photos. It’s easy to upload 1000-2000 photos from the Network in your archive per day. Only you need to have time to distribute the links for them!
2. All downloaded images will appear in your individual archive. Each picture must be moderated separately. Prior to this, all files will be marked with a red flag and have a translucent red crosshair in the center.
I tell you, this procedure is not fast. Then how lucky. I can not explain the reasons, but 500 pictures can be checked and allowed to be shown in 2 days, and sometimes 5 normal, high-quality pictures are “hung” on moderation for up to 2-3 weeks. Apparently, everything is determined by the workload of the inspection staff.
3.After moderation on all images taken in the system, the translucent red crosshair will disappear and the checkbox will change to green, and personal links will be assigned to the materials. These links define the place of the picture in the Image2you system, for quick searching by curious users. Links from these images can be started everywhere on the World Wide Web to distribute and start collecting views that will turn into your earnings.
In addition to the links, for each image received in the system, you will receive a greatly reduced copy of it. This is a kind of banner that will attract visitors who want to see the full version of the photo. A link to move to your normal image stored in the photo hosting archive will already be embedded in this thumbnail.
It will remain active, sharp and cunning in disseminating the links received. It is important to place them in the most visited, thematic places where there is always an interested category of Internet users. As a rule, these are specialized forums, thematic groups of social networks, lively discussions in comments under the relevant article, chats, etc. The main thing is that the moderators do not remove the link, since it is often forbidden to engage in such matters so as not to spam people’s communication.
There are special tactics to slyly hide links from the eyes of strict moderators, however, this is a topic for a completely different article.
You can send links to friends, friends, relatives and other acquaintances.
Considering that you know where the bootloader module is and what it is, Immediately proceed to step by step instructions. Consider the upload process in one picture, although you can download up to a hundred pieces at a time, as I said,
All received materials, depending on the situation, are easy to use for a set of views of your own picture (many of your pictures) loaded into the Image2you system. These links will provide transitions to the server, for which you will receive a monetary reward.
Tip! When you need to upload several pictures in a row, you need to press the "Select a photo to upload" button again. Then specify the next image. All uploaded images will be displayed on the right in a special field!
The principle of uploading photos by ID is even simpler. You need to find out on the site the ID of a specific image, copy it and paste it into a special field of the loader module. It remains to click "Download" and the picture is downloaded to the system for moderation. Then the procedure is similar to the situation described above with photos obtained from the archive of your computer.
Moderation, as a rule, is non-Draconian if the inserted image is of reasonably normal quality and meets the allowed criteria.
About the partner system, enchanting phrases are inappropriate here. Photo hosting Image2you offers extremely poor conditions - a one-level affiliate program, and from each invited referral you can receive only 5% of its profits. More power will go to the search and recruitment of these referrals. Moreover, such sites today are not very popular, so attracting an actively working user here is almost impossible.
Why not? This is also a way to make money. On Image2you, the administration occasionally organizes all sorts of competitions where cash prizes are raffled.Earlier, weekly bonuses to the earnings of the five most initiative and active participants in the project were awarded, however, now this happens, at best, 2 times a month.
But, getting an extra bonus is always nice. For example, for the first place (who earned more for the specified period and posted more interesting photos) it is necessary to earn + 15%. It takes into account the period of the competition.
A lottery is also provided for chat participants, where you can also win extra money. But, it is most likely fun for bored users.
If you put things well on a good flow, then earnings can make you happy for a long time.
So, the main way is to view your downloaded images. For the completed thousand unique clicks on the link to any image, the project will pay 220 rubles. Successful, high-quality, exclusive photos are easily collected from 10 to 12 thousand views a month. That is, the author, from one magnificent snapshot for a long time, has 2,200 - 2,640 rubles each. It is necessary to try to download not simple, widespread materials, but something entertaining, startling, creative.
Profitability is also possible from referrals, if you are seriously engaged in an affiliate program. There will have to straighten out in search of good workers or be content with a penny profit. There are few prospects in this category of income on Image2you.
Well, stocks and lotteries are the most unstable, spontaneous, partly random way of enrichment in the service.
Such is the alignment.
In this question, the developers took care of their own users and organized a single schedule of automatic payments. That is, all registered participants do not need to calculate the days, draw up applications, expect them to be accepted, etc. They are only required by the appointed day, and this is every Wednesday (no matter, holiday or working day), have over 15 rubles in the account. Such on the web-project Image2you minimum amount allowed for the withdrawal.
Funds are transferred to the WebMoney R-purse you specify. His number must be specified in the "Settings" section, sub-item "Personal data". There is no commission, since the system pays it itself.
