Polish web-development agency Red Sky launches Shorte.st a service through which people can make money by sharing shortened hyperlinks, not dissimilar to Adfly. The service, which is self-funded like other Red Sky projects, only launched on August 28th and has thus far attracted more than 6,000 users, resulting in over 100,000 unique visits per day within the two weeks of operations. According to Shorte.st product manager Kornel Szwaja, they are aware that the service is not totally innovative, but believe that there is nevertheless a high demand for sites which provide a way to easily make money online and an opportunity for Red Sky to satisfy this need.
Shorte.st is a service which allows regular people to make money online by attracting eyeballs to ads. Users of the service shorten links to their content (any links they might find online), share the links, and receive money after obtaining a certain number of clicks. Payout rates vary by country, offering users from $3,93 (2,95 Euro) to someone in the United States to $0.29 (0.22 Euro) to someone living in Vietnam. In all cases, the rates are based on 1,000 clicks and the service only pays out after reaching a minimum of $5 (3,76 Euro). To make money Shorte.st will sell the traffic to the advertisers.
We have reported only on a handful of projects prior to the launch of Shorte.st, having covered the launch of TeslaThemes, covered the launch of Web.me, seen Winithemes reach 20,000 users, seen SoftFinder run a software scavenger hunt, and covered the launch of SocialDoe.
