What are PTC sites
PTC (Pay-to-Click) are programs that pay you to click and watch advertisements. These are being paid by advertisers who want viewers for their ads and potentially buyers for their products and the PTC pays you a percentage of it to watch them. These programs have been around the web for some years and are considered as an easy way to earn some extra money. Some of them proved to be scams so there are some things to be considered before joining them that will be explained later.
How They work
After signing up on a PTC site, it takes you to a page where you see a list of ads. After clicking an ad link it opens a page with its content and after some seconds (usually 30) you will be credited around $0.001 to $0.02 per ad view. They usually provide 4-10 ads a day (some even go as high as 20) and most of them pay you through PayPal or Alertpay. A good way to earn money from them is to join many of them and use them daily. Minimum payout varies with each one and is usually between $2.0 to $10.0.
How much you can earn
Most of them offer 4 ads every day so from each one you can earn 4 x $0.01 = $0.04 every day
Let us say you join 10 sites so it’s 10 x $0.04 = $0.40 a day
That’s not too much? Lets see how you can maximize your earnings.
The best way to multiply your earnings is by using referrals. There are two types of referrals:
- Direct referrals, which are ones that join the PTC site by your affiliate link. The percentage that PTC sites give you for each ad your referrals view varies from 50% to 100%.
- Rented/bought referrals are un-referred members which you can rent/buy from inside the PTC site with a certain fee. Referrals can be active or inactive depending of their click rate. If they are inactive you can change them with more active ones.
How much you can earn by using referals
Let’s say you have 100 referrals, if they click 4 ads a day/every day you get 4 x $0.005 x 100 = $0.02 x 100 = $2 every day, which comes to $60 every month
As you go along, you can buy more (a good strategy would be to invest half of your earnings to buy referrals) 500 or 1000 will make you 600 each month
By joining more sites (e.g. 10) would bring you a 3-figure income every month. Not bad!
A piece of advice about purchasing referrals:
- Before purchasing referrals it is a good idea to upgrade your account to a premium one which will give you the benefits to earn double from each one and spend less from each purchased referral.
- Often check and recycle inactive referrals to save time and money.
- Last but not least you need to be active every day.to get money for your referrals clicks .
What you need
Email. Better use a different one than the one you have for personal or professional use because you will receive a lot of spam (besides, some of these sites might be a scam).
Things to watch
Before you proceed to join you must know that in the past many PTC sites proved to be scams so you must be extra careful when joining one. Below there are some things to check that will help you tell the scams from the legit ones:
- Expected payment range is between 0.001 and 0.02. Less or more may be an indication of a scam site.
- Payment should be instant or in less than a month. To check this, send a request for payment as soon as you reach the minimum payout amount.
- Search the net (or within their site) for some user payment evidence.
- See if they have an active community or forum.
- Check the quality of the ads.
