Making Money With PTC Sites

There are many ways to make money online, but most take a lot of time to research, set-up, find niches, promote, and more, except Pay To Click (PTC) sites. Through these sites you can begin making money as soon as you set-up an account and verify your email address. Getting started is easy, but it does require a little work, just not as much as other opportunities. The first thing you want to do is determine a criteria for selecting a PTC site, such as age of website, payout proofs, upgrade costs, and if they offer rented referrals.

What is a PTC site?

This is a type of website that pays you to click and view an advertisers website for a certain amount of time. The longer you are required to view an ad the more you will get paid. The number of advertisements available to view each day often depend on your membership level, free or upgraded. Free members have the fewest ads available per day to view. Upgraded members will often have more ads to view per day and even get paid more to view them. Most PTC sites also allow you to get direct referrals and some even allow you to rent referrals to increase your earnings potential.

Age of Website

When I decide to join a PTC site the first thing I look at is how long the website has been in existence. Some PTC sites have been on the web longer than 5 years and others have been running for less than a few months. The longer a site has been running the more information you can find on its reputation, the responsiveness of their admins, if they payout, and how well the site has been maintained. That being said, it doesn't mean you shouldn't join newer sites, it just means you will need to use more caution because they have not had time to build a reputation.

The next thing I look for is a payment proof section on their website or forum. You have to use caution when looking at payment proofs because some sites will just create a text link of proofs that don't really prove anything. You want to look for screenshot payment proofs, such as images uploaded by a user showing payments received to an Alert Pay or PayPal account or check payment. Some users may receive large payments but in general the average users will have smaller payments in the ranges of $2.00 to $15.00. So, if you find a site where every users seems to make a ton of money you will want to use caution. Also, use caution if the site requires you to earn a large amount of money before being allowed to cash out. Most PTC sites offer a cash out starting as low as $2.00, but generally averaging around $10.00.

Upgrading

Another thing you will want to look at is the cost to upgrade your PTC account. Upgrading your account will give you additional features not available to free members. Some sites will have just 2 levels, free and upgraded, while other will have free and several levels of upgrades available. I recommend staying free for the first 2 months so you can learn how to use the site, follow the forums, and earn enough to request a payout.

Once you receive your first payout then you can decide if upgrading your account offers enough benefits to make it worth while investing in the cost of upgrading. If a PTC site offers several levels of upgraded membership, each level comes with its own set of perks, such as getting more ads to click per day, getting paid more per click, and being able to have larger amounts of rented or direct referrals. Most sites offer several upgrade payment options, such as monthly, trimonthly, and yearly.

Referrals

The final thing to consider that can affect your earnings potential is PTC site referrals and the site's referral policy. Referrals impact your earnings because you get paid a little extra based on the ads they also click. Some sites will even pay you on a level scale, meaning you can earn extra from a referral's referral down to a set level, such as 8 levels deep. Most allow you to get direct referrals, which are people that join the site under your personal referral link. However, some have direct referral limits placed on free members, so if you plan to work on getting a lot of referrals then you will also want to consider upgrading on those sites that have a referral limit. Some sites also offer you the ability to rent referrals. Rented referrals are often available for renting in singles or packs, ranging from 3 to 100, sometimes more.

Most rented referrals will belong to you for a 30 day period with the option to renew at the end of the 30 days. Some sites will allow you renew your rented referrals for periods longer than 30 days and provide a percent based discount for doing so. Other PTC sites will offer rented referrals that get converted to direct referrals within 24 hours. These referrals will often cost more but they are yours to keep as long as they are actively clicking. Referrals are generally considered active if they have clicked in a 30 day period. Some sites will deleted members that have not been active or logged into site for longer than 30 days.

There is a bit to consider but compared to other online money making opportunities, PTC sites are pretty easy to use and make money. You simply have to join, click ads each day, and get paid. To increase earnings you will want to consider upgrading and the various benefits you get if upgrading has multiple levels and getting referrals and the PTC site's referral policy. To get referrals you will need to promote your affiliate link and there are many options for promoting, such as SafeLists, Traffic Exchanges, and other PTC sites.
