Why Do I Have To Invite 2 Friends
We can only start working with our advertising partners when we have more users. The faster we grow, the sooner we can work with them, which means that we can show you tailored ads so and ensure you get paid for them. Right now we are funding all of the items in the marketplace, but this isn’t sustainable. That’s why we’re asking users to invite friends to help us grow.
So why should I use Gener8 now?
- Because you are not seeing any ads! Only feel good images (like pictures of pugs and other images our users voted for)
- Because you still earn tokens for seeing these feel good images and after inviting 2 friends you can exchange them for products, vouchers or donations to charity.
- Because we’re growing every day and quickly heading towards being able to show you tailored ads so that the marketplace is permanently stocked (and you can ‘cash out’)
- Because you’re an early adopter and an important part of the movement 🙂
Full Background Info
For those who are new to Gener8, here’s a bit of background: Gener8 is an attempt by us (ex-Red Bull guys) to change advertising. Our vision is to give you more control over the ads that you see and enable you to make money from seeing them. Gener8 is an extension that works by replacing all online ads so that it can pay you every time you see one. The money comes from the companies who’ve paid to show you ads.
The more users we have, the more money we can charge companies and therefore the more money you gener8. As we grow so does the amount of money you make.
In order for Gener8 to be able to gain traction in the (advertising) industry we need to build our user base. This enables us to have serious discussions with media agencies and advertisers and ensures that we are able to demand a fair price for your attention (for the ads you see). This is what ends up in your pocket – the advertising revenue that they pay to show you ads. We have made a deliberate decision not to sell any ad space until we have a larger user base. That’s why you aren’t seeing ads right now – you’re seeing pugs and other feel good images that users have voted to see.
