Why should you be paid for reading SMS?
As a mobile phone user, you are of tremendous value to merchants who
are aggressively seeking your attention and actively reaching out to
you to buy their products. At mGinger, we appreciate your act of
registering as our user. We understand that you are often faced with
time constraints and need to optimise your precious time accordingly.
That is where we seek to relieve you of additional stress by
delivering to you only relevant information that you require and at
the times specified by you only.
As a gesture of appreciation, we compensate your effort by paying you
to read the advertisements we send to you. Join us today and be
assured of receiving only relevant information and yes, of course,
cash! And start earning CASH rewards without any investment or
purchase needed. Plus, grow your network of family and friends and in
turn make more profits. Refer your friends and you will be paid for
the SMS that they receive. People who join as users (like you)
actually help generate more cash rewards for you. For every advert
that your friend receives, you get 10p and for every advert that your
friend's friend receives you get 5p.
These special SMSes from the advertiser enable subscribers to stay on
top of the game and hear about the latest product info; it also
spotlights their latest and greatest offers and lets you know about it
first. Some of these offers aren't available anywhere else, even on
their Web site! And best still, you get paid to receive this
information with no strings attached!
How does mGinger actually work?
mGinger works by sending you advertisements in the form of SMS to your
mobile phone. The adverts will consist of offers, vouchers, news and
more. These adverts will be related to areas of your interest that you
specify during sign-up. Also, you will receive these only in the
timings that you specify. You can refer your friends to become a part
of your network. You will get paid for the adverts that you and your
When do we start getting Ads?
You will get ads only when advertisers want to send advertisements to you.
For this to happen, two things must happen:
a. Advertisers must first want to advertise on mGinger, a new medium.
Since it is a new medium advertisers are approaching slowly.
Many are not even aware that mGinger exists. They are taking time.
b. Those advertisers who do sign-up must want to target you.
Advertisers target you based on your interests, location, age, gender,
salary, occupation and many more parameters. If you do not suit their
criteria, they will not send their ad to you.
When you selected the "
Max. Number of ads per day" as 10 (or 7 or 5 etc), it is only
your preference. It does not mean that you will surely get 10 ads
every day. It only means that the maximum that you can ever get on a
single day is 10. On some days you might not receive even a single ad,
on others you might receive a few but not exceeding your preference.
mGinger doesn?t claim that it will send you any particular number of
advertisements every day. Please understand that mGinger is just a medium.
When advertisers come, you will get ads, when they don?t you will not get ads.
Please do not get carried away by the hype. Here is the reality: the
money you will make from mGinger will in most cases for a long time
not be much. The value of the service is not in the money you make
directly from mGinger but in the valuable, relevant information that
It will take a long time before we can get enough advertisers on a
regular basis to send you even 10% of your max preference ads. This
whole industry is a baby. Out of Rs. 16,000 Crores spent every year on
advertising not even 0.005% is spent on mobile advertising. So, your
guess is as good as ours on how long it will take to move some of this
spend to mobile.
So, this is what we have to say to you: You will see very few ads on
our network for some time (how long? Maybe 4 months, 6 months, we
can?t say), have patience, stick to us, we are trying our best to
Is it really free to join?
Yes, there is no fee to pay of any kind at anytime.
