I've earned $8.75 in two days on Redgage. While I've been a member of Redgage for a while, I recently re-visited the site to buiild some backlinks to my eHow articles and other online content and was pleasantly surprised by my earnings.
How to Make Money with Redgage
Redgage is a site where you can write original content, create links to your other online content (like eHow articles) and upload photos and video. You earn a small amount for views on your Redgage content (pennies really) but Redgage also pays out bonuses for content that they feature.
I've earned $16.25 on Redgage and $13.80 of that has been feature bonuses. I don't think my experience is unusual. The bonuses (and daily contests) are the way to make money on Redgage and that is why it's possible to make money quickly there.
Redgage and Photos
My most recent feature bonus of $3.80 came from a picture I uploaded. It's a picture I took at the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial and it accompanies this blog posting. I'm kind of excited about the potential to earn feature bonuses for photos at Redgage because I've been interested in Michael-John Wolfe's information on making residual income with stock photography. I even tried uploading a few photos to a stock photography site and had them rejected because of low resolution, non-commercial subject matter, etc. Because of that experience I had tabled the idea of pursuing stock photography as a source of residual income. But with Redgage I can upload some of (what I consider to be) my more interesting photos and earn some residual income from them. That's encouraging to me!
Redgage for Backlinks
One of the best reasons to use Redgage is for backlinks to your other online content. Creating a backlink at Redgage is similar to creating one on Xomba or She Told Me. You copy the link, give it a title, write a short description, and then add a few tags. It takes very little time to do and the links at Redgage are 'do-follow' so they're especially valuable. Redgage is a great addition to the collection of sites where you can actually make money with your backlinks.
