As you can see from my previous posts, Perk TV is a major earner for me. Not only that, but it’s passive. I love passive income more than anything so I really like Perk TV.
For those of you who are new to this blog, Perk TV is a service that displays ads and content videos on a mobile phone. After testing it for a few days I decided to set up a “farm.” A Perk TV farm is a bank of smart phones running Perk TV 24/7 with minimal human intervention – i.e. passively.
Perk allows five devices per person, so I bought five devices for Perk TV. Of primary importance to me was maximizing return for time which meant the cheapest phones that could do the job, with the smallest overhead – i.e. electric draw when plugged in and charging 24/7 – but which could still do the job adequately.
I settled on the Kyocera Event. This phone has a bad reputation for functionality and battery life…but I don’t care about that. I want it to do one thing, play videos and stream internet over WiFi. So far the Events are working fine. No problems, no burn outs, etc. I fully expect them to be worked to death in short order, but they will pay for themselves long before that happens.
More to the point of this post, Perk TV has worked so well, I bought a mess of phones for HER to set up her own farm! I know! I’m MAD for Perk TV!
Can I tell you what is even better? I bought the phones almost entirely using my Perk TV earnings. I only paid $0.97 out of pocket for four Kyocera Event smart phones running Android 4.x.
