Are you getting your “thankful” list ready for turkey day? If you’re like most families, there might come a time between the carving of the bird and the slicing of the pumpkin pie for you to list all the things you’re thankful for. Obviously, the mere fact that you get to share this dinner in a warm place with your loved ones can be top of the list. Once you get a few more of the high-ranking thanks noted, I suggest you give thanks to iPoll.
Now, there might be a few folks gathered around your holiday table who have no idea what you’re talking about when you say the words, “iPoll rewards.” Perhaps it is time for you to enlighten them. The best approach would be to whip out the smartphone and show them the iPoll app. It will be easy to follow along from there.
Life is full of lessons. They even have a name for those. They’re called “life lessons.” The hope is that you learn something new every day. While you were in school, that was easy. Everything you learned was new. The older you get the more those lessons seem to diminish. A lot of that has to do with attitude. In others words, many of us think we know everything there is to know. As stubborn as your intrepid correspondent is with regard to change, I freely admit I still have a lot to learn. For instance, here are some of the life lessons I picked up in the last couple of days:
If you have kept your Christmas lights up for the last two years, then you’re well within your rights to flip the switch and turn them on even on the second week of November. Thanks, neighbor up the street, for that lesson.
If you turn your iPad over to your 21-month-old son to make him happy, don’t be upset if he accidently deletes several apps.
If you don’t participate in iPoll Mobile Missions, you won’t earn extra cash rewards. (Okay, I already knew this…but let’s just say this lesson was refreshed).
Are you someone who rolls with change or fights it tooth and nail? Truth be told, I probably land somewhere in the middle. Case in point: The last time I upgraded my computer I was confronted with a new operating system. Not even sure what version this was/is, but it has all these floating apps and categories and columns. Way too much information! Plus, you kind of have to swipe the screen with your mouse to find things. Not a fan. First thing I did was went looking for the old interface. Found it, loaded it, and I’m much happier.
This brings me to the new and improved iPoll app design. Big change. But guess what? It’s awesome. Bold graphics, easy to navigate, and I can see at a quick glance what’s on my agenda. At this moment, I have one survey, two missions, three scavenger hunts and four quizzes. I’ve never felt more organized. There is also a note at the bottom of my app telling me that over $500 was awarded to the iPoll Fall Photographers. Clearly, there is a lot of money on the table. And it’s time for me to start raking it in!
There is a reason why restaurants are part of the hospitality industry. It’s because you have to be hospitable in order to earn a customer’s business. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the hospitality industry is the one sector of the workplace that consistently adds jobs each month. Could a food server job be in your future, or the future of one of your kids?
Full disclosure: I worked as a waiter at several restaurants. Big, small, and scary ones. Although it can play havoc on the arches, it is also a fun job if you like meeting people and making them happy. Sometimes your desire to make a customer happy doesn’t always match up with the quality of the food. Still, if you’re the bright spot in their dining experience, you can count on reaping the rewards. To bolster your chances of earning even bigger tips, embrace these food server tips:

Whilst I was recovering from my Halloween candy overload (no more chocolate until Christmas!), I was out and about. That was when I received a couple of pings from iPoll, directing me to some local eateries in the neighborhood. Although I didn’t have the opportunity to stop by right then (chocolate overload, remember?), it’s nice to know those places are on the iPoll radar. That can only mean a Mobile Mission in my near future. It’s also a perfect excuse to check out a new bistro I haven’t tried before. My quest for the perfect Eggs Benedict lives on! I follow the road iPoll lays out, and who knows what treasures I might find?
I’ve come to realize that having the iPoll app is a lot like having a tamagotchi pet. (Flashback!) They were those little digital creatures you carried around on a keychain. Once activated, you had to feed them, play with them, and generally pay attention to them, or else the little critter would croak. Fortunately, there isn’t the same kind of pressure with your iPoll app. However, if you don’t check it every day, you could be missing out of some wonderful cash rewards. That’s definitely a lot more of an incentive for me than with a tamagotchi! Let’s take a look at some of these reward-reaping quizzes I’ve encountered recently:
“All the comforts of home.” That is how many hotels advertise their facilities. The hope is you pick their business because it will be just like staying at your own house. Of course, (say it with me) there is no place like home. It might seem odd to talk about staying home in a piece dedicated to Mobile Missions. After all, you need to get mobile to complete those missions, right? As it turns out, not all the time. There are plenty of ways you can make money with iPoll without ever leaving your home. All you need is your iPoll app and/or access to the website. Here’s how it can all happen:
Do you consider yourself handy around the house? I have to admit that when it comes to wielding a screwdriver or hammer, I do okay. I wouldn’t be going for a contractor’s license anytime soon, but in my time I’ve built many IKEA pieces, swapped out the locks on the front door, hung paintings, and even accomplished a little toilet repair (my proudest achievement). That is probably the extent of my DIY abilities. When it comes to auto repairs or plumbing, I would prefer to avoid the “do it yourself” idea, and turn it over to the professionals. However, when it comes to making money with iPoll online surveys, I’m a master at DIY. In fact, iPoll Mobile Missions are all about DIY making money. Yes, you can share the mission, but the money will be all yours! Consider these recent Mobile Missions I took on as a DIY challenge–and won:
Who among us has kept a journal? Love of journal writing usually begins when we’re young and have many “Dear Diary” entries to write down. Nothing beats stumbling across one of those old journals. All the drama, all the angst, and looking back it just seems like nothing could ever have been so dire as your journal made it seem. Last week, I filed my Monday morning report, relating how completing an iPoll survey can lead to other surveys. Now I am at liberty to report the details: and they’re pretty sweet. This Mobile Mission also allowed me to get back to my journaling days–only this time, I was earning cash rewards!
One of the sad realities of life is that nothing lasts forever. Sooner or later, you’re going to have to buy a new car or refrigerator or even a mattress. That is expected. What is truly sad is when you miss out on great opportunities because time runs out. That brings us today’s subject, “Fast Response Earns Extra Cash Rewards.”
Let’s unpack that subject, shall we? Not all iPoll Missions are available to all iPoll participants. You might not always notice this, but in the lower left hand corner of the mission post there is an expiration date for that mission. There is also a notice about how many spots are left open for that mission. Something like the New Product Scavenger Hunt always has spots open. However, according to my app, the hunt is only on for the next six months. That might seem like a long time, but if you don’t get in there and start posting new products, you’ll never be in the running for the big cash rewards offered to the most prolific posters. This is why it is vital that when you see an iPoll Mission, take an iPoll Mission.
