David Zaretsky has been juggling a few projects from his dedicated office space in TechNexus for over a year now. One of those projects was started when David observed an economic imbalance in the practice of linking to websites, whether via Twitter, Facebook, blogs, or other websites. While the companies who sell things and advertise on the linked-to destination websites get valuable traffic, the person who referred all that traffic via their link gets zilch. David is changing that with SNIP.PS.
Anyone can easily set up an account on SNIP.PS to start getting paid for their links. Once registered, users have access to a personal analytics dashboard that gauges revenue and identifies links that can be especially lucrative. SNIP.PS users make money through a quick interstitial ad that appears before anyone who clicks their SNIP.PS link views the destination site. People can expect to make between one and three cents per click, depending on demand, and that can add up if you have an influential online presence.
