Bring! is a new service that gives you a personal phone number to give out which forwards to your real phone number. The difference between Bring! and a normal call forwarding service is that you make money whenever some calls your Bring! number.
How does Brring! work?
Brring! places an ad on your line which is played when someone calls you. Each ad is about 10 seconds long. According to the Brring! FAQ, you’ll typically receive around $0.05 per ad played but some ads can earn up to $1. Right now they have a special on where you receive $1 for the first 10 calls you receive!
Brring! offers many useful features you can use to customize your account. For example, you can choose which area code you’d prefer to have for your new number. Currently the area codes offered are for American cities. They do take requests for other area codes if you want to have the same one as your local number. Just for fun, I chose to have a 212 area code on my line (New York).
You can also customize the ring tone your callers will hear after the ad is played while calling you. You can upload your own custom MP3 with your choice of music, or maybe even a simple message saying, “Please wait while your call is connecting to me…” in your own personal voice.
They also offer an affiliate program which pays $1 per sign up. You could sell this idea to a group of friends offline and have all of them sign up under you, then you could all call each other at make money together.
Would you use it, Chris?
I am using it! It’s a great giveaway number to have on your business card or give to anyone who you don’t want to have your real number.
