I’m always interested in new social media tools. I’m “one of those people” who likes to try the latest and greatest application to see if it’s fun, and I inevitably get hooked! Recently IZEA (makers of SocialSpark.com) launched a new app called Staree, a photo and video sharing service. I work with IZEA a lot and love what they do, so was excited to give it a go. It’s also interesting because Staree can monetize your content. Even if you don’t blog, you can make money from using social media and sharing your content. Interesting, huh?
It’s easy to get started.
1) go to Staree.com and create an account, either through Twitter or Facebook. As you can see, I have a profile page. Wow, my face is big.
2) load photos and video onto Staree (you can also post on your mobile phone).
3) share on Twitter and Facebook.
4) earn money! If you take great pics Staree team members will reach out to you with special offers from advertisers to take pictures with their products.
I chose to upload this old picture of me at work because I’m quite sure that it will get lots of hits and I will be rich. Seriously though, if you are interested in monetizing social media, it’s worth checking out!
