Announcing an important milestone for InstantCashSweepstakes.com

Hi ICS’er,

ICS gives away cash all day long like no other site on the web. We are able to do this because we are a legitimate business. ICS is owned by AskYourTargetMarket.com, a new startup and exciting online market research service.  We built and launched ICS more than a year ago and now AYTM is about to be fully launched into the world.  We’re hoping that AYTM will be wildly successful so that we can share the rewards with you.

Market research surveys ordered on AYTM are sent to ICS, mixed in among the usual fun surveys, to be answered by ICS’ers.  In order for AYTM to be a valuable service, it is critical that ICS’ers be truthful about the demographics in their account profiles. It is also important that all answers given in surveys be candid and sincere. 

In order to encourage the very best from all our members, ICS developed and has just launched a patent pending technology we call TrustScoreSM. TS is a system that evaluates all survey answers and predicts if a member’s demographics are likely to be truthful and if their survey answers are sincere.  We use TS to give special perks to those who earn high scores:  more surveys allowed per session, additional lottery tickets and extra Bonus Store coins. In other words, having a higher TS gives you a winning edge. How do you earn a higher TS? Be yourself. Be candid. “The truth is easier to remember than a lie.” As a great start, go to your account profile and double check that your demographics are correct. Your honesty and candor helps us succeed, lets us put more prize money into the ICS ecosystem, and rewards you with increased odds of winning.

Thanks for your support. Have a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year,

BTW - Thank for your continued support and votes at Vator.tv. It’s not too late to vote. This is a major big deal for us.

We appreciate you!

The advent of this new year has gotten us thinking around here at InstantCashSweepstakes.com…As we all know, the economy is struggling to rebound. As Americans, we are all struggling to rebound, too, and our fighting, never-say-die spirit is evident.

InstantCashSweepstakes.com is not built to make you rich, and we never claim to do that. All we want to do is provide you with a fun, engaging, thought-provoking form of entertainment that also gives you a chance to win some unexpected and much appreciated free cash!

We see you out there, posting your referral links and talking up our site, and we want you to know we both appreciate and applaud your efforts! We have seen some really creative and excellent blogs, frequent Tweeters, and forum posters! We are happy to have all of you on board and look forward to adding to our ICS community through your referral efforts and Internet word-of-mouth that is starting to build. Through your efforts, you are also helping us build a serious market research biz!

Just think…you will be able to say…I was a member of InstantCashSweepstakes.com back in the early days!

Thanks again, and continuing good luck!

More way$ to win CA$H!

Ok, more ideas about how to increase your referrals on ICS! There are so many enterprising people out there, and ICS has our share!

Blogs are free and easy to do…right? Right. People search the Internet all day long, every single day, for ways to make money online…right? Right!

Well, if you do a search on instantcashsweepstakes blog you will see a ton of hits. People write blogs on what they do to win/earn money online. They post their own referral links for people to click through. When said Internet searcher finds the blog and likes the concept of ICS, they click on the referral link, sign up, and start playing and winning. The blogger then wins everything they win!

So, here are some links to some blogs that feature InstantCashSweepstakes.com and some more forum links. Hopefully you will get some good ideas about what YOU can do to win more money from ICS!

By the way, kudos to you ICSweepers with blogs, and who diligently post on forums!

Don’t forget: always read and follow the Terms of Service on the forums. If you break their rules, they won’t display your post and they might ban you.

Let’s put the CASH in InstantCASHsweepstakes in 2010!

Hello ICSweepers!

As we usher in the New Year, our thoughts turn to…making more money, of course! Here at ICS, we want to help you all to do that. Yes, we want to give away MORE money in 2010 than we did in 2009!

We have been trolling the Internet, looking for forums and message boards where you can register (for free), and post your referral link to ICS. You can write a short blurb about why someone should join our great site, and encourage them to click through YOUR referral link to join. They will be added as your ‘friend’, and you will win when they win!

What could be easier?

Well, how about we share the links to those forums with you so you can get started? (see below)

Want some ideas about what to write in your blurb?

Let people know we are 100% legit and never use your email for SPAM purposes!

We give away cash daily and have a drawing for $50 every day.

Tell then to invite their friends because when their friends win, they get a matching prize.

We pay by PayPal really quick!

We will continue to crawl the Web looking for more places for you to post. In the meantime, feel free to post your ideas and links here about how you get referrals, and we can all, as a community, pool our ideas so all of ICSdom can make more money in 2010!


















Good luck and happy playing and winning!

AOL users having problems with ICS

We have become aware that some AOL users are experiencing problems using ICS. Most of them report that they keep being re-directed back to the same survey over and over.

If you are experiencing this problem, please write to us at instantcashsweepstakes@gmail.com and let us know which version of Internet Explorer you are running AOL on.

In the meantime, we encourage you to access ICS through a different browser, outside of AOL. Some other browsers that ICS can support are Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer 7 and 8.

From AOL:


How do I determine the version of Internet Explorer I have?

You can upgrade to the most recent version of Internet Explorer® by going to AOL® Keyword: Browser. This keyword can only be accessed using the AOL® software. Please note that some applications are only compatible with certain versions of Microsoft® Internet Explorer.

To determine the version of Internet Explorer installed on your computer, do the following:
1. Click Start, select Programs or All Programs, and then click Internet Explorer.
2. Click the Help menu, and then click About Internet Explorer.
3. Next to Version, the first number that appears (example: 5, 6, 7, or 8) indicates the version of Internet Explorer installed on your computer.

Please note: ICS does not support Internet Explorer Version 6

Also from AOL:


Upgrade My Web Browser

The latest Internet Explorer is offered on the AOL® service.

To upgrade your browser:
1. Sign on to the AOL service.
2. Go to AOL® Keyword: Browser.

Note: If you already have the latest version of Internet Explorer, you’ll see a message saying that you already have the latest browser. If this appears, do not continue with these instructions.

3. Click the Upgrade button.
4. Note the approximate download time, then click the Download Now button.

Note: The browser update, namedswsetup.exe, will download and install automatically. When you are prompted to restart your computer, click the OK button.

Please note: ICS does not support Internet Explorer Version 6

If you determine that you are running IE 7 or 8 and AOL and are still having these problems, please let us know!

We are pleased to announce that beginning November 3rd, ICS is introducing a daily cash prize award of $50! Just like bite-sized candy…sweet!

As a result of many requests from our valued ICSweepers to break up the weekly $250 sweepstakes prize, we will now be able to make even more of you become happy, instant cash winners by increasing the chances for all active players to win BIG on a daily basis!
What’s the deal?
Well, not only are we going to award a $50 cash prize daily, M-F, as requested…..but we are going to sweeten the pot by doing this seven days a week!
