I've been doing the math.
I earn about 10 Swagbuck points per day. That is 300 per month, minimum.
At this rate, I can achieve my goal of obtaining the Paypal cash of $25 in about 11 months.
My first inclination is to quit Swagbucks. BUT then I wonder. It takes me less than a minute to earn those 10 points. I do the daily poll for 1 point and a simple search which usually yields 8-11 points.
11 months to earn $25.
11 months x 30 min/month = 330 min for $25
330 min = 5.5 hours
$25 / 5.5 hrs = $4.55/hr
Less than minimum wage for the United States.
Is this worth it? (Stick with me here.)
Yes and no.
When I do the math, no. Really, who wants to earn $4.55 / hr?
Actually, many Internet marketers and online entrepreneurs make less than that for the first 2 years.
So, in hindsight. One minute a day to earn what I wouldn't otherwise is a fair trade. And I can say, Swagbucks is pretty generous with their points compared to what I have attempted in the past. And it is fun and easy.
My numbers are based on the minimum points. I do usually earn more. AND if I get people under me, which I do, the potential to earn more rises.
What do you think?
Would you like to join Swagbucks too? Do you have 1 minute a day to spare?
