PTC sites, a well-known niche in the Internet marketing world. Online newbies will always try and work on PTC sites in order to make their first money.
Heck, even I used to spend 1 hour per day working on a few PTC sites back in my teen years.
1 month later, I realized it is not worth my time, I lost 30 days of life thinking about this method and I only made something like $4. (this was taking place back in 2008-2009 when you could only make $0.5-$1 per day using PTC sites)
Why do newbies always jump on this method?
Because they usually go to Google and they type: “How to make money fast” or “How to make money with ads” or “Make money online for newbies”. These sites and PTC affiliates are well ranked on Google and they will easily lure newbies using their affiliate program.
These newbies will get on some “make money fast” website where some guy will tell them: “You can make at least $20 per day using PTC sites, and if you invite your friends you can make even more because you will get 20% of their income on top of yours”.
Now newbies are ‘lured’ into this PTC scheme now, and they are working on some scammy PTC sites losing their time making $0.001 per click.
How much money can you make from PTC sites?
The answer is NOTHING, you can just lose your time, that’s it.
99% of these sites will pay you $0.001 or $0.002 per click and $0.0005 for referral clicks.
What is a referral click?
If you invite your friends or any other people to signup on these PTC sites, and if they start clicking on ads themself, you will make $0.0005 per click from their clicks too.
How much money can I make from the PTC site?
If you are clicking 200 ads per day you can make $0.5 – $2 per day.
If you can click more than 1000 ads per day, and you have an extra 100 referrals, you would still make less than $10 per day.
But $10 is better than nothing, isn’t it?
Yes, it is, but not like that, you have to work 10 hours per day, click on 1000+ ads, and you need to get more than 100 referrals in order to start making $5 per day.
It’s not worth your time, and it can crash at any time.
But $10 per day is $300 per month, I can invest that money in something else?
Yes, you can, but in most cases, you will never see your money. 90% of PTC sites are not legit.
Trust me, you will never get your money even if you make it!
But a Friend of mine earned $900 last month, he would never lie to me
Your friend is probably using you for his affiliate scheme, he sent you a referral link, and once you start clicking on ads he will start making from you.
I have $85 in balance and they will pay me out!
Even if they pay you that money, they will take 5% as their fee, Paypal will take you 5+% as their fee and you worked 2 months for $50, Congratulations.
Trust me and never use PTC sites as your income source, go for something better!
