  • How Much Is a Poll Worth???

    I saw the following in my daily email from the NY Times ("The Morning"). It looks like Lordosis has been approaching this all wrong. Need to monetize the WCI polls. (Red font color added by me)

    For sale: The minutiae of your day
    “Have you ever wanted to control my life?” a 15-year-old TikToker with 3.3 million followers asked in a recent online video. He then asked his fans what game he should play with friends — dodgeball or catch — and 78 percent chose dodgeball. Fans have also voted on what he should watch, what video games he should play and what to name his pet hamster.
    These interactions are an example of how start-ups are making it easier for digital creators to monetize every aspect of their lives, as Taylor Lorenz, a Times tech reporter, writes. One of those companies is NewNew, where fans pay to vote in polls, like the dodgeball one, to determine a creator’s daily choices. Five votes cost $4.99.
    “It doesn’t matter how boring you think you are, there’s someone out there who would find your life interesting to the point that they’re willing to pay,” NewNew’s founder, Courtne Smith, said.

                  Same. Maybe that is why we are rich.

                  Then again, perhaps so are the folks watching and paying $5 to vote on a tiktok star.

                  But probably not.

                        Even when I am promised money for voting on choices in the medical questionnaires that flood my inbox every day I rarely ( well never) bite on it. I have burned in the past and now value my time more.

                        Imagine people paying to vote. Or the medical polling companies asking us to pay before being allowed to take their secret questionnaire. Maybe that reverse psychology trick might work on us in answering those stupid questions.

                          People do seem to like spending money.
