Another Way of Making Money Online – PTC Websites

 

So what does PTC stand for? PTC means  “paid to click”. Basically, all you have to do to earn money on a PTC site is to click advertisements. By clicking various advertisements, you earn some money (ranging between 0.001 – 0.02$ for an add). I bet you’re thinking it’s only a couple of pennies, so why bother? The answer is that there is a referral system, using which you can earn more. Still I wouldn’t recommend PTC, due to obvious disadvantages. But let’s stop for a moment and talk about the way PTC sites work.

All you need to do to start earning is registering an account, and clicking a number of adds (raging from 4 or 5 to 10 or 20 or even more) daily. To view an add you need to click it on the PTC site, sometimes write a code confirmation, and wait a couple of seconds. Dead simple. However, it’s important to mention, that some PTC websites require to register your credit card details, or paypal details in advance. You should be aware that many of such websites can be scam, thus it’s always better not to use such websites.

I used a number of PTC websites and I wasn’t happy with my experience on those websites. First of all, one of the biggest disadvantages is that you can only click a limited number of adds daily, whereas on other websites, for instance Triond, where you get paid by writing articles, you can write any number of articles daily. Another great disadvantage is that referrals you buy (basically, you can pay other users to click adds for you and earn money) don’t always click the adds, which is equal to lost money for you. It’s almost impossible to get support on these kind of websites, which is also a huge drawback. However, by far the biggest disadvantage is that you can never be sure if a PTC website, that you have chosen, is a scam or not. I used two PTC websites, both of which “mysteriously” stopped working, disappearing with all the earnings. All in all, I basically wanted to warn you with this review, of the dangers of PTC websites. It’s clear that I do not recommend these kind of websites. However, just to be fair, I have to say, that there are PTC websites, which pay real money and really work. One of them is Neobux.

And now for those of you who are to lazy to read all of this review, here I summarize the advantages and disadvantages of PTC sites:

Advantages

1) It is easy to use. Even a child can understand the simple site layout of Neobux. It contains a dashboard with all your statistics and other useful tools, which will help you manage your account.

2) It is not time-consuming. You can click up to 4 – 5 adds daily, and it only takes about 1 – 2 minutes daily. So I guess it is the best site for those people, who do not have enough time to, let us say, write articles.

3) Later you can rent some referrals – guys, who will click adds and share some revenue with you.

4) It pays out money via check or Paypal.

Disadvantages

1) It does not pay a lot of money. As I mentioned earlier, you can click 4 – 5 adds daily, which means that you can get 4 – 5 cents daily.

2) Referrals do a very bad job. Most of the time referrals do a lazy job and only click 1 – 2 adds. You are lucky if you can find a referral, who will click all 4 – 5 adds.

3) You have to pay money to change your lazy referrals. It costs 7 cents, which actually kills the purpose of having referrals, because you will have to change them really often.

4) Your rented referrals will last only 30 days, then you will have to buy new ones, or pay for your old referrals once again.
