After joining Ciao for free you can start answering paid surveys and writing online product reviews. This is quite simple as long as you follow the instructions below.
Log in to the Ciao website using your new username and password and click on the Surveys link at the top right-hand corner of the screen. You will be taken to the 'Basic Interests Profile'. Answer all the questions on the profile and then submit the page. Within a few days you should start getting sent e-mails to the address you signed up with. The Interests Profile is a way of building up a picture about you, so that they know which kind of surveys to send you. Obviously if you answer the interests profile saying that you are a young unemployed single man then it is probably quite unlikely that you will receive many surveys. Answer the profile stating that you are a middle aged IT manager with a wife and kids, and you will probably receive quite a few well-paid surveys.
Log in to the Ciao website again, you should be taken to the home page of the site (containing a list of the categories of products available on the Ciao website). Either find a product you would like to review by browsing through these categories, or if you have a specific product in mind just click on the search bar at the top of the page and type in the product. For example, type in 'The Matrix' and click search. Click on the second product from the search results (Matrix boxed set DVD). You will be taken to the product page for the Matrix DVD boxed set. Take note of the pound symbol and the text 'Write a Review'.
As you can see from the highlighted image at point number 1, there are 2 visible pound symbols. The pound symbols are used to show how much money you can make from reviewing a product. 1 pound symbol means that you will earn 0.5p per rating received. 2 pound symbols mean you will earn 1p per rating, and the best rating is 3 pound symbols; meaning that you will earn 2p per rating. At Ciao you earn money from the reviews every time another Ciao member reads and then rates one of your reviews. So if you were to review the Matrix DVD above (2pound symbols) you will earn 1p per rating received. So if 100 members read and rate your review, you will earn '1. There are thousands of members at the Ciao website, so obviously there is plenty of money available to be earned from writing reviews.
To write a review you will need to click on the 'Write a Review' link, as highlighted above in point number 2. Follow this link and then fill in all the text fields on the website, then submit your review. Not all members will automatically read and rate your review, so you will need to put in some extra work in order to receive more ratings. The best way of doing this is by reading and rating other members reviews on the Ciao website. Click on 'Member Centre' on the top right hand corner of the Ciao website. Then scroll down and find the 'Latest member reviews' link. Read and rate plenty of these reviews, and hopefully they will return the favour and earn you some money.
The other way of making money from your reviews is from the 'Premium Fund Award'. The most popular reviews written during the month will be rewarded with part of the premium fund; usually around '10 per review. To win this prize fund you will need to write your reviews to a very high standard, and will need to get lots of members to nominate your reviews for a diamond (the more diamonds you receive, the higher the chance of winning part of the premium fund).
