How To Make Money Through Paid-To-Click Sites And How These Sites Work ?
What Are Paid-To-Click Websites ?
PTC (Paid-To-Click) websites are online ad revenue sharing websites. These websites attract users by sharing the revenue of the ads with the users. The website itself acts as a middleman between the advertiser and user. This provides a a service for people to earn money without any investment.
How They Work?
These PTC websites generate income through advertising.
- The advertiser pays the website to place ads of their website
- The ads are presented to users to click and view for 30-60 seconds. The timing depends on the ad, some micro ads have 15 second requirement.
- The viewer is paid with a small portion of the income generated by the website.
- The viewer is presented with 15-20 ads a day. The user cannot view more than the provided ads per day.
What Are Referrals ?
On some PTC websites, there are 2 types of referrals:
- Direct Referrals
- Rented Referrals
Direct Referrals are the people that came to the website through your referral link, meaning they joined the website because of you. Now if they click on the ads for themselves, you will be given a small portion of the income.
Rented Referrals are provided by the website themselves, it is pretty self-explanatory. These referrals are rented by you to click on ads, the income generated is given to you. These referrals are paid for a week, they only click on ads if you do, so you need to stay active.
So referrals are a big part of PTC websites. They are necessary to be profitable.
How Profitable Can They Be ?
Through my experience with PTC websites, some people on these websites have properly set up their accounts, they earn $100+ per week.
However, there is this concept of memberships on PTC websites. The main advantages of memberships are:
- The limit of referrals you can rent is increased.
- The amount of money generated by rented and direct referrals is increased.
- You are given more high paying ads for the day.
These were some of the advantages of memberships. Without memberships, it is a very hard and time taking process to set up an account to be profitable. These websites are designed in a way that you cannot buy the memberships from scratch. They want you to invest money for memberships as well as referrals. Some PTC websites do not offer rented referrals.
