LikeNET Update

LikeNET has had another unannounced change with the removal of the Daily Bonus button.

LikeNET: "obviously we know removing the bonus button is unpopular - however we cant just pay people to click a button that has no value to any business. we recommend subscribing to SMS alerts via 'my account' these are of no charge to you, and will let you stay in the loop when there are opportunities or bonus codes, so you do not have to spend time checking likenet. likenet is a way of getting money for free - by doing very simple and quick tasks - but businesses have to want you to complete a task, for money to be available. we are starting a new effort to obtain opportunities from businesses - we have also made it very easy for YOU to make money by referring businesses to post opportunities" It's a shame that it had to come to this point. I believe the idea is great, but their business model is not working, which is a shame. It could have been good for both businesses and consumers alike. I am disappointed with this change and I really think that removing the Daily Bonus will cause some people to leave, which will not be good for LikeNET's reputation.

While they mention that they give us the LikeNET members lots of ways to refer businesses to LikeNET, there is only so much we can do, and LikeNET has to be able to sustain itself through companies they can get, not through what the members direct to them.

I hope they can turn things around, but at this point it is just a waiting game. As always CMM&S will keep you updated on any changes to come.
