What Is a PTC (paid to click) Site?
PTC is actually a short form of Paid to Click. Using these sites would help you earn money for clicking on advertisements. You might ask why someone would pay you for viewing advertisements? But the story is different and you need to understand it clearly.
This is true that someone is never going to pay you if you don’t do anything for them. Someone might pay you if you help that person earn some money. PTC sites are just an example of how easy it can be to earn online by only visiting advertiser’s websites.
How Does a PTC Site Work?
It all starts with advertisers who want customers for their products and services. Every new website is not so popular that it can get enough number of visitors to attract new customers. Now they look for ways to attract new customers.
A PTC site helps these advertisers to get customers by showing their advertisements to its members. As a result, advertisers pay them and they pay you as long as you click on these ads.
Usually you have login to your member control panel and click on available ads every day. Usually you have to see the advertisements for 30 to 40 seconds. The amount you would earn varies depending on which PTC site you are using. Not every PTC site would pay you the same amount of money per click.
Concept of Referrals in PTC sites:
Basically referrals are people who are referred to any particular site by you, for example if i say you to visit any website them i referred you to that website and you have been counted as my referral.
In PTC sites they have referring link by which if a person will go to any PTC site they will automatically detect that person as your referral. More referrals mean more money. Every PTC website has its own criteria of referrals,
What is benefit of referrals?
As you know in PTC sites when you click on any advertisement they credit you some amount i.e 0.01 cent. and when your referral will click his advertisement he will get his 0.01 cent as well as you will also be credited with 0.01 cent for his each click as a reward. So if you have 20 referrals that means 20 people are clicking for them as well as making money for you also. That is how referrals work and benefits you.
An example earning chart is given below with 100referrals under your downline. But practically all of them won’t be active, so consider 50active referrals.
Your click earnings: 5 ads x $.01 = $ 0.05/day
Your referral click earnings: 50 x 5 ads x $.005 = $1.25/day
Your total earnings per day per site = $ 1.30
Your monthly earnings per site = 30 x $ 1.30 = $39
If you join just 10 best paying PTC sites, your potential earnings is: 10 x 39 = $390/month
How to Choose a Legitimate PTC site?
Since most PTC site is scam, it is very difficult to find out some genuine ones. But it is not as difficult as it may seem. You just need to understand some basic features of a scam site. Then use your intelligence. You will understand it easily.
Remember, every genuine PTC site has forum so that members can join and share their experiences with other members. If you are planning to join a particular site, you need to find out if they have any forum or not. Because if they have a forum, you can join and ask other members about their experiences.
Genuine PTC sites wouldn’t bother to have a forum to help its members share good experiences. Only scam sites won’t have any forum for discussions with other members. Check how long the site has been online and the minimum amount you have to earn to be eligible to get paid.
Search Google if you find out any review of the site. Search Google Image for screenshots of payments. Many members become very happy when they get paid from a PTC site. Genuine PTC sites would ask you to post your payment screenshot in their forums so that other members understand they are genuine. These screenshots get indexed by Google Image.
So Searching Google Image for some payment proofs would be a good idea. Check if the site is changing its terms and conditions or payout policy frequently. Check if they respond to your query if you contact them. How long it takes to be contacted.
