What Is It?
Complete surveys, micro tasks, and trial offers to earn money and prizes.
As with all trial offer and survey sites, the time you spend doing menial tasks is not worth the money you make. AT BEST, you can make about minimum wage, but that does not factor in other things which may cost you money or take more time than expected.
You could be spending your time doing other things to make a lot more money online. Don't sell yourself short.
Before You Buy
Do not believe the hype of how much money you can make taking surveys. Anyone that has spent time on a survey site says the same things
- A lot of surveys are broken
- Some wait until you finish to tell you that you don't qualify
- Answering questions honestly is tedious
- Each survey takes longer than planned
- You cannot do more than a few per day without going crazy
- Some do not credit you, and there's no one to blame
Once you factor in all the things that can go wrong taking surveys, you are making about $3-$4 per hour, and your time is more valuable than that.
Trial offers are the biggest gimmick out there, and I will rant about them below.
These are the basics of Fusion Cash, though there are other ways to make money on the site.
- watch videos
- refer friends
- read articles
- listen to the radio
What I Didn't Like
Waste Time On Videos
The most appealing choice of Fusion Cash was getting paid to watch videos. I'm a YouTube and Netflix addict, so I went straight to this section of the site. I was disappointed to find out that you only get paid 1 -2 cents for most videos. Considering a video will take a couple minutes of your time, you are making about $3 per hour…maybe.
I watched an extremely dumb video about a Marvel Comics computer game. It lasted about 2 minutes and completely melted my brain with boredom.
Spend Money At The Mall
Probably the most useless of the menu tabs is the Mall. Here, you have to spend money! Yes, on a website where they claim to help you earn money, one of their methods is to show you advertisements for products.
Sure, you get a discount and/or cash back, but why log into this site if you are just going to go shopping? No doubt these guys are making a commission off of these sales too.
This is a pretty legit way to make money at the site. $1 per email confirm, $2 per ‘paid offer' they complete, and $5 per cash out. However, without training on how to properly gain referrals without spamming Facebook, Twitter, and other people's websites, this is going to be next to impossible to make this a regular source of income for yourself.
You might be able to hit up a few friends on Facebook, but once that group dries up, so does your referral income stream, unless you have outside training on how to build a website and drive traffic to it.
Paid To Click
Essentially, you click an ad, sit there for 2.5 minutes. This sounds easy, until you try to do it and just watch the clock tick down. I guess you could multi-task while doing this, but the amount of money this pays is not worth the energy it takes to click around on my browser.
The worst one here. Paid 3 cents every 30 minutes to listen to the radio? No thank you!
Paid To Call
No results! Hm, I guess this isn't an option any more.
Paid to Sign Up
Probably the most famous, as well as the most profitable for you (and Fusion Cash) is the trial offers. Companies pay FC to get people to sign up for the free or paid trial offers. FC pays you each time you hand over your credit card information.
This is also the most dangerous and misleading way to make money on these types of websites. You certainly can make a few bucks doing this, but things get complicated once you get serious about completing offers.
Keeping track of 1 or 2 trials happening isn't a big deal, but when you have 30 different offers going at once, all started on a different day, going for different amounts of time, a few might slip your mind. Since they already have your credit card info, they simply bill you the full amount of whatever you signed up for if you don't tell them to cancel!
It may take you 2 weeks and 5 offers to make $20, but all it takes is ONE forgetful day and you could be back to $0 net profit.
This is a legitimate site where people are actually making some money. However, I still think it's not worth your time. At the very least, I can say it's not worth my time. Fusion Cash will NOT pay the bills.
If you really want to earn more money than you are earning now, there are other ways to go about it. Most of them start with an EDUCATION.
Learning to do your current job better could result in higher pay or a promotion. Learning a new skill could open up opportunities for you. Even learning how other people are earning money on the internet is worth the time investment.
Personally, I'd make $0 now, and learn a new skill than make $3 per hour and do mind-numbing tasks like take surveys or watch advertisements.
About 4 years ago I taught myself how to build simple websites and make money from them. I did this with the help of some training videos, and the help of other online business owners. Now that I work for myself, I help people start on the same path I did.
It's not for everyone, but it is for the people that see their time and energy as a valuable commodity. Invest your time into learning how to build a real online business that could be earning you $1,000s per month rather than sell yourself short for less than minimum wage.
