Okay, so I signed up for a free account with People String to check it out. After receiving several invites from a couple people, I decided to have a look at the guts of this business model and share my initial impressions and Peoplestring review.
From what I can tell at first glance, Peoplestring is a social networking and email service that rewards you in multiple ways for using their services.
Here’s one of the free banners that People String gives you to help spread the word on your blog or website.
Similar to Facebook, there is a social networking aspect of the site where you can update your status, add friends, join groups, etc. . . Additionally, there is a chat feature that brought me back to they days of AOL chat rooms of the early 90’s.
The system gives you an email address such as firstname.lastname@example.org that is free, though it may take you a minute or two to find it. I found it by clicking on the rotating “Mail” icons on the right side of the page.
Before I share my thoughts on the program, I actively participate in Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, so that’s where my social networking foundation lies.
I think Peoplestring has a great idea about putting money back into the pockets of the users, however, in my opinion, I think it’s a “features overkill”. For me, the dashboard is too busy with banners, buttons, links, tools, and news.
I’m guessing that once you get into it and spend some time with it, you’ll be able to easily navigate through the site.
Maybe I’ve been spoiled with the simple Twitter layout that asks nothing more than, “What are are you doing? and the Facebook update box that asks the question, “What’s on your mind?”.
Am I going to take Peoplestring as a serious business venture? Maybe. They have a lot of new features planned coming up for the network and I’m sure they’ll be working out the kinks as they go along. While I was trying to figure out the system, the number of people online was bouncing around 176 at any given time, which in today’s social networking word, is minuscule, however, you have to start somewhere.
Personally, I think People String needs to clean up the interface some so it’s easy to follow and so that it intuitively tells you what to do to use the services and generate income with the system. From what I can tell, you get paid by getting others to use the system, taking surveys, and promoting some products like this Black Grape antioxidant drink. It’s a bit overwhelming for me.
They do have some tutorials and webinars and so forth to show you how to use it all, but to tell you the truth, I’m in an iPod state of mind. I want to be able to look at the dashboard and know what to do without an instruction manual.
Will I personally pursue Peoople String as a business?
Well, I’ve signed up for my free account and I’ll definitely check in with them from time to time to see how the system is progressing. If they do clean things up to where I understand the system, I’ll definitely be launching my business and helping my downline to do the same.
Should you sign up for Peoplestring?
Yes. Why not? It’s free.
Sign up as part of my group by clicking the banner below and when I decide to take this business into full gear, you’ll be one of the first to get first-hand training on how I do it. Might as well jump in early and get paid a couple bucks doing so.
