This article is about a social media platform that once became popular because of its ability to pay users with a high amount of money. Just imagine earning $75 per month if you will do the blogging seriously. They have existed for I think only 18 months and lots of users have been paid for their hard work.
I will share with you here the rise and fall of KIKI app. From the day I registered up to my last post with the platform.
“Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds”
That was their slogan. Their mission was to make the platform a source of income for every user.
Kiki Was Born
Kiki app was released on April 16, 2019 in google playstore/appstore. The platform was also accessible through the web at kikitime.com and soon was renamed to kikiers.com.
Let me quote here the messages in the app details.
“We have a dream in which the role of social media is not to provide social proof but to offer valuable content to users. We are building an online sharing economy social network for people who love producing amazing content and read amazing stories.”
Founders and CEO were Alireza MrBeig and Alireza Asadi, with all due respect their intentions were good when they created the platform. You can check their profiles here.
How do users earn?
It was no difference to any other social media platform but KIKI was designed to pay users for every post. $1 for every article with a minimum of 300 original words and or original photo. You need to reach the threshold of $75 before you can request for a pay out. When the platform was still fresh and young, the threshold was $100 dollar and for some reason they lowered it down to $75.
Of course they also have a set of rules because you can not just post anything, it should be authentic. Meaning photos and words are yours and not copied elsewhere from the internet.
Photos can be anything as long as it’s yours and with a not so low quality. Words can be your own native language too.
Many users from around the world have been paid for their hard work. There were also cheaters of course, but they were dealt accordingly by the admin.
I have met several people on that platform and they became my virtual friends, some are also read.cash/noise.cash users.
Kikiers as they call each user. It’s challenging to see fellow Filipino when they were posting about their payout of $75 dollars.
I started using the app when I saw an influencer posted a review about it and I installed it right away. The app was 5 months old back then when I started my first post in September 2019.
At first I didn't take it seriously as I was still skeptical about the app. Even if I have seen some users posted their proof of earning I am still not convinced, only when I met Pinoys on the platform who have earned already for several times. I wasn’t really that hardworking in posting or perhaps I have a regular job that’s why I only do posting during my free time.
The platform has a program called Super Creator. This means that if you are one of them your post will have high exposure to all audiences thus making you popular and earn more followers. Fortunately I became one of them.
I became known as Lars Croft on the platform.
It was only in February 2020 that I reached the threshold and requested for my first payout.
With hopes that I will get paid, I doubled the hard work and reached nearly $75 in just two months after I requested my first pay out. Unfortunately it did not come to materialize because COVID19 struck the whole world.
This became the downfall of the platform. Users began to post rants in particular. They started hating the CEO because payment was delayed. Somehow Mr. Alireza paid it’s users to the extent that they have used their personal savings according to him.
Despite that complaints of some users, Mr. Alireza has managed to answer concerns through email. There are users who understand the conflict but mostly annoyed and agitated accusing the CEO as a scammer.
I know for sure that I won't be able to receive my first payout due to the world health crisis but I did not want to accuse the CEO of whatsoever. I feel saddened and disappointed but I can understand the situation and put my feet on their shoes instead.
Mr. Alireza somehow was replying to my emails and just to make it fair for me I requested him to send me a full copy of all my blog posts on the platform and he sent it to me completely. So most of my stories here are originally posted from that platform.
For you to know that Kiki existed you can check my blogs at kikiers.com, it is still on the internet.
I don’t understand why most user was so agitated with Mr. Alireza. I am not trying to defend him but if you are one of them who almost curse the Kiki team. I guess you should broaden your mind a little.
I feel disappointed with him too, nevertheless he did not ask money from me nor to any Kikier and blogging with Kiki was just one of my hobbies. Earning from them if they did not give up came only as a consolation for me. But I think Mr. Alireza is never giving up. I know for sure they will rise again.
