NIUME Explained –
Get paid to blog and posting your posts!
Niume explained – What is Niume?
It is a collaborative site where you can share new or older posts to a ready-made audience. The post has to contain a minimum of one graphic and 5 lines of text. It may contain links to your website or other websites, but not directly to selling or affiliate content.
As with all new platforms, you need to learn how to use it. Niume quickly becomes familiar and the finer points are learned as you go along.
Niume is two years old, it is growing by hundreds every day. From August 1st, 2016 they started paying their contributors. The first payments went out in September. They pay out after $10 is earned. Money is earned by others viewing your content. 1000 views = $1.00 for you. As an example of views, I joined on 9th October and in 4 days I received 351 views of my three posts.
When you join you make $1.00 and the person who referred you also makes $1.00
UPDATE: as this post is my observations of Niume and some folks have asked for an update, I will do that. I have been posting for two weeks now, with about 12 posts. I have had over 1750 views, plus comments and shares. I have gained status, I am making new friends and starting to get a little blog traffic. So overall I am very happy, it is a little addictive and I like to make money while I am having fun. It takes about 1/8 of the time to write a Niume post than what it takes me on my blog.
If you just want to check Niume out it will be best to use my link so that you get the $1 if you decide to join. Just going there you will collect a cookie, then if you want to join and use the link it will not register ie they only recognize the first cookie and if you don’t have a referrer, neither get paid.
Niume has 20 broad spheres (categories). On joining you are asked to pick at least three or choose as many as you can provide a post in.
There are ways to gain status within each category that you post in. It helps to be active, keep posting and commenting on others posts. ‘Like’ others, Like is called Hype and is a thumb up or down, this is anonymous to keep the review honest. When status is gained, it is shown by a number between 1 and 50. Example – In my first few days I gained status 3 in Literature. So now if I give a thumb up (Hype) to another post the receiver will gain three hypes and not just one.
The Niume staff pick posts to be featured. As a result featured posts get more views and the ‘featured’ contributor’s profile and all their posts will get a gold badge for one week. Then everyone can tell that this is a ‘featured’ contributor.
It is the number of views or reads that you get paid for. A view means that you click on the post and open it up, this is important. It is possible to give a post a thumb up without opening the post.
Get recognition and be paid for your efforts.
I am happy with the results, there is more action for my posts here than I can get nearly anywhere else.
The posts in Niume that I have read are of good quality, even the short ones.
Get exposure to a new audience and meet new friends.
Contributors do not have to have a blog or website.
If your original posts on your website are longer, you may be able to break some posts into two posts to put onto Niume. Also, you can change the titles or some of the content.
From within Niume you can share on your social media. I notice when I tweet my posts from within Niume, that Niume staff always retweet it, giving more exposure.
It is simple to write new posts that only require one graphic and five lines of text.
Old sleepy posts wake up and work again and earn a little $.
Some are concerned that if their content is duplicated it may lose Google power. Others say that Google is smart enough to know who owns the original. You will have to weigh that one up for yourself.
Niume are not good at answering queries.
It is too early to know if any of this activity will translate into blog traffic.
Could it be a scam?
I don’t think it is a scam. I recently joined another similar site called Empowr. Within 48 hours of joining I realized it was a scam and left. They found ways to charge you advertising costs that used up everything and more than you earned.
As Niume has only been paying out since the middle of September 2016, it was hard to find review information. I messaged one of the Niume contributors who had posted 457 posts and asked if he had in fact been paid from Niume. This is the reply.
“ Denis Font
Hi Kathleen, yes a lot of people got paid last month including me. It’s been an update to the platform that was introduced recently and I think it’s a great way to reward the community.”
I am thinking the worst thing that can happen is that they will go ‘bust’. If we have had payments then we are still better off.
