Are PTC Sites worth it?
There are a number of sites on the internet which pay you money for
nothing more strenuous than clicking on a link to view an ad. It has to
be the easiest supposed way to make money online. These are called PTC
sites or Paid To Click sites.Many people join these sites each month to
try and earn some extra cash online.
Personally I have never paid much attention to such claims made by sites and as a result have never got on to any of these *great* money making deals. I did snoop around on one site in question to do some research for this article but it was not a confidence building experience. My skepticism stems from two main facts.
First is the fact that I believe that to be
successful you need to put in some effort and here there is literally no
greater effort than clicking on a couple of ads to view them. I mean,
come on there has to be a catch here some where. Why would some guy just
pay you to watch an ad?
Second I do not think that the really minimal pay outs per click which are from $0.001 to $0.04 depending on the site are very worthwhile. It takes effort to sit through such a monotonous activity for the hours on end which would finally result in a pay out of two measly dollars?!!! I can sit for fifteen minutes and write an article which would pay me a minimum of five dollars.
However not everyone is gifted with the ability to write at will about topics that they may need to research about so I suppose this may be their way of making money online.
To be successful on these PTC sites you'll need a PayPal account and an AlertPay account and a lot of patience. It will also help if you manage to get some active referrals under you on each site as you get paid a minuscule percentage of what they click and earn as well.
are referral exchange forums where you can develop a long list of
active referrals without bothering your family and friends. Plus they
will be as driven as you to make money and will be as active as you.
Before you start clicking for a new PTC site run it through the scam list on search engines. Many sites open with a bang, operate for a week and then go out of commission taking the time, effort and money that you put into them into nothing.
