ScratchBack “Top Spots” Tips Pass $500

It’s been less than two month’s since I’ve added the ScratchBack “tipping” widget to my blog. With the latest tip from “PPP, makes WSJournal”, that brings the blog to 25 total tippers… and an additional revenue source of $537.30 to the blog. When Jim contacted me about displaying the widget on the site, I gladly accepted and was excited to see how it would perform. However, instead of just asking for tips and letting a new widget sit on the site, I made the decision to incentive the deal a bit. This blog is all about how I can help you make more money, and the idea behind ScratchBack is to be able to “tip” a service or blogger for their advice or a job well done. Unlike other tipping plugins, when tipping through a ScratchBack “TopSpots” widget you also receive a link back to your blog or web site of choice. When I added ScratchBack to the blog, not only was I opening a new revenue path for the blog, but I wanted to give my readers a little something extra. To show my appreciation, every “Top Spots” tipper/link through this blog receives a black MoneyReign T-Shirt! A new section is being compiled now to display any “tippers” that have a picture of themselves wearing the shirt. In this section they will have their picture posted, along with a link back to their blog/web site.

Once again, to show my appreciation, I will do a recap on the first 25 “Top Spots” tippers since the widget has been added to the site last month.

If you would like to be featured in the “Top Spots” position and receive a MoneyReign shirt, all you have to do is click “Get in My Top Spots” on the widget to the right. Last month I had 10 Top Spots, and I moved it down to only 5 Top Spots this month. This way it is seen as a more exclusive area and should send more clicks your way, with less competition. I never really planned for the ScratchBack “Top Spots” widget to become such a source of income, rather than a fun way for me to give out some of my 500+ MoneyReign shirts I just recently ordered! There are still currently two “Top Spots” available, if you’d like them just go through the process and send me your address through the “Contact” page and I’ll have your shirt sent out this week!

  1. Hi Zac,

    good to see the widget is doing well for you, but as one of the first tippers i am a bit disappointed that i never got the t-shirt…

    did you change the free t-shirt offer to local tippers only after i tipped or did i just miss that condition when i tipped?

    if i had one, you would have a pic…

  2. I'm laughing at the name of "Sorry Zac I’m a fool" and "I’m Better Than Zac"

    Lol.. funny 😀

  3. A $25 tip?! Now I'm thinking that mine is too low! It's currently set at only $2 since I'm only starting to promote it. Anyway, it's nice to see that you've made a huge amount of "profit" from this.

  4. I have added scratchback to my new blog, it is located on the single pages between the post and the comments section. I am about to launch my blog though and might remove it, I’m still not sure if its worth having it there or not at launch as It makes my blog look empty

  5. Zac, is this something you think it will work on any site? What about implementing this into your myspace resource sites? Do you think it will make some money?

    1. I think it would work best on a blog, as people learn from the blogger and can relate to the users traffic. So a "tip" and link back would be more beneficial. I'm sure ScratchBack would work on any regular site as well.

  6. Thanks for the link, Zac. I'm fairly happy with how it's going so far – I think it's important to remember that this is a 'tip' rather than an advertising spot. It's nice to be able to give back to the blogger and get something in return – which is exactly why this widget was made in the first place.

    I am looking forward to getting my new shirt and I'll get some pictures up ASAP when I do.
