Do GPT sites work?

Updated on October 6, 2012

With the unfortunate global economic down turn, and the fact that things seem to be getting a lot worse before they get better it's having a major impact on peoples jobs, and their finances as a whole. Sadly, jobs are becoming few and far between, and people are desperate to make money.

The question is though, how can people make easy money from home? Well, one such avenue people can venture down is using GPT (Get Paid To) sites. These are basically sites that allow you to take part in opinion polls, free offers and also playing games, and in return you'll be given money for your work.

You can get paid through various ways, including PayPal and also cheque. Best of all, it doesn't cost a penny to join, you'll never be asked for your bank details, and some sites even give you a sign up bonus.

How much can you make?
The amount that you can make really depends on how much time you put in. If you put in a good effort each day, you can earn upwards of $20. Whilst this doesn't sound like a lot, if you do that every day, that's $600 a month on top of your normal wage which is a huge amount!

Even better, if you refer people, you'll get even more money. On the site that I currently use, if someone signs up under your link, every time they complete an offer, the admins on the site will give you a bonus of 15% of what the value of the offer that they completed. Also, every time someone signs up and completes their registration, you'll be given $0.50. Again, this may not sound like a lot, but there are numerous member on the site that have over 15,000 referrals.

By going down this route, you're guaranteed a steady income, which can only get bigger with the more people that sign up. Also, if your referral signs up someone, you'll get 3% as a bonus of what they earn, and if they then go on to sign up someone, you'll get a 2% bonus every time they do an offer. This is an excellent way to make money on the side, and it really can help you financially.

The site that I currently use also lets you get free amazon products if you wish instead of getting cash. However, it's entirely up to you what you earn. To find out more, PM me.

Thanks for reading!

      Well it only takes under a minute to sign up for the program if you take on my recommendation from Excellent Amazon Freebies. As an aside, if you type in 'Free Amazon Products' into Google, you'll see that my site ranks number 1 in the world. This is no small feat, and shows that plenty of people are visiting this site daily and are willing to get a little bit of extra cash/amazon credit.

      So we're talking less than $8 an hour, even if you're fast at it, NOT counting the time it takes to find and sign up for the programs? That doesn't sound like a very good return for effort to me.

      @putnut. The surveys I do range from $.50 to $1 and I get through them really quickly. I don't make anywhere near the same money I do each day on hubpages compared to the GPT site I use.

      I do have a couple of things I'm putting together though to boost my HubPages views, and thus earnings, but they're still be tested just now. If they're successful, I'm tempted to make a Hub about it.

      What I will be doing in the next few days however is giving crucial adsense advice, not just for Hubpages, but also YouTube.

      I would say that it takes about 2 and a bit hours for the $20. However, numerous factors are involved here, such as qualifying for the survey in the first place, your interest in doing the survey, and also how quickly you can do the free offers. These offers usually only take me five minutes or so a peice, so I can blast through them, although everyone has their own speed.

      All in, doing all the surveys on their own will net you $10. I've always been lucky in that the surveys I'm given are really short, but again, its down to the pre-screening questions.

      I have found, myself that the amount of time used to do surveys ends up being somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 cents an hour at the end of a year. Never sign up for the ones that promise to enter you into a contest, waste of time there. Things like Hubpages seem to me to be something more real, but I haven't been here long, and haven't made more than 10 cents an hour here, either, soo.... How does one get noticed on today's internet?

      "If you put in a good effort each day, you can earn upwards of $20".

      I'd be interested to know what you mean by "a good effort".

      The most important question is always "what is the rate of pay per hour?" That's the only way you can judge whether, for instance, it's better to spend three hours on a survey site or three hours writing articles.
