Question Jotter.com, Legit?

Jotter claims to pay its surfers $0.50 per every hour. Their minimum payout is $50.00, which sounds a little fishy to me. I was wondering if any of you have received payment from them.

Thanks.

Thumbs up

Jotter is a new company (one of MANY new get-paid-to-surf companies) so I no one has been paid yet (this is only their 2nd month of paying) but they seem to be legit. Their site is very professional, and their viewbar works well and tracks time accurately.

So out of the many new get-paid-to-surf programs, Jotter is one of my favorites. I've made about 30 bucks so far, I'll post in this thread if I get paid. (Probably after next month.)

It seems to me that the big advantages of Jotter are its high pay rate, and its reminder service for user ids and passwords.

The big disadvantages are its high minimum payout requirement and its funny signup process. First you download the software, and then fill out the sign up form. Instructions are poorly written.

I agree,

Jotter has a lot of good things going for it, and I have little doubt that they will pay as promised.

The sign up process is very confusing though. As was said, 1st you enter your e-mail and then you download the software. After installing the software you fill out your name and address (payment info) to complete the registration. My numbers show that less than half of the people who download the bar complete the registration process. It needs to be explained much more clearly, because their signup procedure is different from the majority of the paid to surf companies.

Cool

Does anyone have a handle on what the burn rate for these pay-to-surf companies might be?

Are any of them making a profit, fur instance?

How long can they keep going until they flame out?

... just me thinking on that second cup of coffee ... http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Cheers,
Dan

Excellent question! http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Although there is very little information available, we do know that AllAdvantage has lost A LOT of money. Their fixed rate, combined with fast international expansion, and a lot of cheat programs have combined to push their loses in the multi-millions. Also, recent changes ($30 minimum check, and lowering payable hours to 15) indicate that all is not well there.

Other variable rate companies, I believe, are doing much better I believe. Spedia, for example, has always had an agressive revenue plan by basically paying members to sign up for affiliate programs, and to play games, as well as to surf the web. They also base their payout on the revenue brought in. If I had to guess, I would say they are "in the black".

With others, its less clear, those are just a couple of examples.

Unhappy

The cash flow of some of these companies i something i watch rather often. Most of them are not doing well at all, and the very few that appear to be cash positive (but typically still unprofitable) are seeing declining revenue indicicating they will not remain cash positive. Here is some interesting reading on alladvantage:
http://edgarsearch.ipo.com/fil_submis.asp?iacc=1166912

"Revenues. Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2000 were $9.1
million."

"Direct Member Costs. Direct member costs for the three months ended March
31, 2000 were $32.7 million."

"Sales and Marketing Expenses. Sales and marketing expenses for the three
months ended March 31, 2000 were $26.9 million."

A lot out, very little in, and most companies don't look like they can turn it around. Will be very interesting to see where things evolve.

To find a site is legit or not, you can do some methods. You can check whois lookup for a domain name. Visit the site WhoisXY.com here you can check whois information for domain name. If the information is public and looks legit,you can note the email id, contact number of the domain name owner or administrative or technical department or else sale department. It will help you to contact them if you have any problem after using their services or buying their products. Then you can visit the site ****Adviser.com check whether the site is trusted or not. If the result will "High Trust Rating. This Site Looks Safe To use." It is good site. Then you can visit Webutation.info here you can read users or customers reviews, ratings and feed backs about the site and their services. If they said good, you can start using the site.
