Paid email websites have been popular since the mid to late 1990s. Although much of the excitement around paid email has cooled off you can still make extra money from them with a little work and by promoting your referral link.
Paid email enthusiasm has died done because, in the beginning of the industry you could make between $.05 to $.15 for each email. The problem was the advertisers weren't making money, because the ads were too expensive, and the paid email members weren't actually interested in the ads.
Now a days you will receive between $.01 to $.02 for each paid email. Usually you will receive 2 - 5 paid email a day from each company. Although not nearly as high as it once was you can still make some extra money from paid email if you promote your referral link.
Tips for promoting your referral link: What a lot of people do is they sign up for a bunch of paid email websites and then use their earnings to promote their referral link for the other sites they are members of.
This can take a long time to show any profit, because it takes a long time to build up your earnings.
