Are Paid to Click Sites a Scam?
Like many other questions about making money online, the answer is yes and no.
The idea behind Paid to click sites is simple. Advertisers pay sites to show their ads for a specific length of time. The members or these PTC sites are then paid a small portion of the advertising cost to view the ads.
There are plenty of legitimate Paid to click sites out there, but there are also many scams that quickly set up shop with the sole intention of collecting money from inexperienced and unsuspecting advertisers with absolutely no intention of ever paying its members.
If you are just using a paid to click site to try to earn income, your risk is low as you will only lose time if the site doesnt pay. I suggest you do a google search about the specific site or look for information posted on forums. If the site isnt paying people, it shouldnt be too hard to dig up this information.
For the sites that are reputable and paying, you may want to build a downline or upgrade to increase your earnings.
If you want to make any sort of substantial income from paid to click sites you must do two things: join at least twenty and try to build downlines in the programs.
since you will usually only earn anywhere from a fraction of a cent to maybe 5 cents for viewing each ad and you will only be able to view maybe a dozen or so ads on each paid to click site each day, you must be member of many sites at once to see any significant gains from your efforts.
The way to make a more generous income is by building downlines in each paid to click site. You will typically receive the same amount from each member in your downline when they click on/view an ad that you would receive from your own efforts.
So, in effect, having one member in your dowline that is as productive as you would double your income from that site. And you also earn from your referals, referals.
As with any other way to make money online, earning good money from paid to click sites will take some work. From my experience, there really are no “quick Bucks” to be made on the internet, except by the scam sites that will quickly deprive you of your hard earned money.
With focus and daily effort, you should be able to begin earning a couple hundred dollars a month within 3-6 months from paid to click sites. That is, of course, dependent on your ability to build downlines for these sites.
