Yay another blog post.
I have been really tight with money lately so I have been trying to find ways to make extra money online through PTC (paid to click). Basically it pays you to browse website through advertisement. Majority pays like $0.001 to $0.02 per click and you only have to spend from 3 seconds to 60 seconds to view them. I remember years ago, like back in year 2000 or so, where there was this paid to surf thing where you had to open a banner and let it run daily while you surf the net. It was when I had the 56k connection that charges by the minute so it was not worth it.
Incentria is alright. I do get some ads but other than that, it’s nothing. I don’t get paid much either for each ad. You don’t get to do much there. There are some offers you can choose to do within 4 days and the payment ranges from $0.10 – $0.50 but they’re ridiculous. But to upgrade is HELLA expensive. It’s $5.95 per month or $49.95 per year. Why should I pay $5.95 every month when I’m only earning like 10 cents, right?
However, the cool thing about Incentria is that each unique visit through your referral link will earn you $0.0001. And their advertising system is unique and interesting.
I found Clixsense from Incentria’s ad. You see… ads are not bad sometimes. They advertise sites that might be useful to you.. Anyways, so I clicked it, browsed the site and straight away registered it. But then, after more browsing, I found out the paying members have special benefits. Somehow, i don’t know why, that after reading the benefits, I decided to join as premium member. WTF right?
But it’s only $17 PER YEAR. That’s rought $1.40 per month! WAY cheaper than Incentria right? But I have absolutely no idea why I decided to pay without even googling if it was a scam or not! I googled after I paid and I was crossing my fingers hoping it’s not some scam but thank God all websites I visited have good reviews about Clixsense. If you don’t believe me you can google it yourself.
By being premium member, you get special benefits as below:
- Referral signup commissions
- Higher direct referral click commissions
- More chances to win in ClixGrid
- More ads available
- 8-Tier Affiliate Program (If you direct referrals also upgrades to premium)
As you can see, premium gets 4 guaranteed ads daily and 100 welcome ads! I had the $0.01 welcome ads and so I made $1 right after. Don’t believe me? Here’s a screenshot of my account summary.
This was after I was done clicking all of my 100 welcome ads and other ads. My earning has increased a bit now.
They have this chance game called ‘ClixGrid‘ where you click small grids and you could win $5.00. Premium members have 50 chances. I haven’t won any amount yet but I did win 15 extra chances. Plus, you only have to view each site for clixgrid for 5 seconds instead of 10 seconds for normal member.
I won $0.10 today (March 18th 2012) through ClixGrid! I wish it was $5 but hey, at least I won something. So you can actually win through this thing.
The best thing is the referral reward. If you refer people and they upgrade you instantly get $2. There’s even 8 tier referrals where you get $1 each.. so that’s extra $7!
Plus you earn money when your referral clicks the ad. So that’s like earning more and more.
Clixsense also has a toolbar that notifies you when you have ads available to be clicked. At first I thought it’s a useless toolbar that’s filled with spyware but no, it’s just a harmless browser extension and now I can easily see whenever I had ads waiting. That’s why I love Clixsense.
So is that an easy money or what? Of course, you would have to upgrade to enjoy the benefits but hey, like I said, it’s only roughly $1.40 a month, you could easily earn it back by clicking ads and referring people, no?
However, if you’re international surfer like me (as in not from US or UK) it might be difficult for you to get some ads.. especially the $0.02 ads as advertisers have the choice to advertise for certain region or certain countries but you can compensate that by referring people because you’ll earn from their clicks and from their membership upgrade. So at least that’s something huh? Both Incentria and Clixsense have their own pros and cons, the good and the bad. It’s not a way to become instant millionaire, no.. but at least you can have some extra side income.
