Maven recently started a new feature to earn more. You can now link your social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram). The more reach you have, the more potential earnings you get.
Here is the email I received (personal information and details have been removed) from Maven’s VP of Marketing and Account Management, Jessica Duncan:
Hi Lazy Money Guy,
Maven has launched a new feature that will allow us to bring you new opportunities to earn money. From time to time, retailers in our network will offer money to members like you if you share products you like from the retailer with your friends and followers. These “sharing events” will happen on an ongoing basis and will be another way to earn at Maven.
The first sharing event could come later this week with ASOS, a fast-fashion, women’s and men’s apparel retailer. We will be offering our members $5-$100 to create a board using products from ASOS and sharing that board on any social network pages you have.
Your earnings will usually be based on how many people follow you in social media.
If you are interested in participating in these sharing events, we will need to obtain the number of followers you have on each of 4 social networks: Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram. To make collecting that information easy for you, there are 2 steps as noted in the below images:
1. Access your profile on MavenX.com. You will see a section labeled “Your Social Accounts” with buttons for each of the 4 networks.
2. Click each network where you have an account. This will “link” your social account to Maven. Once that’s done, the profile page will automatically obtain the number of friends and followers you have in each network.
We expect several more of these sharing events. Please update your profile and keep an eye out for my invitation to participate. And, if you don’t receive an invitation for the ASOS sharing event, don’t worry. We’ll keep you on the list and bring new sharing events to you from other retailers when we have them available.
Of note, the ‘success’ of these campaigns come from successful purchases in your network. The retailers look for ‘reach’ but also conversion. With that said, personal outreach may help you gain those much needed purchases that can result in MORE of these type of opportunities for you!
