HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE – THE PTC EXPERT GUIDE

Introduction In this guide, I'll explain in detail how you can make money and achieve a steady income from PTC (Paid to Click) websites. I have personally made $1,000s of dollars across 10 PTC sites in the last 6 months. All this was possible thanks to my referrals-other people who essentially earn an income for themselves, whilst providing a share for myself. Without referrals I wouldn't even achieve $100 per month! This guide will teach you about PTC sites and acquisition of referrals. Once you have setup your network of referrals, you can make $100 to $1,000* per month with minimal amount of effort on your behalf. Essentially, your referrals will earn you a steady income, and the more referrals you have the more you will earn! Tremendous amount of time has been spent on the research of how to earn a good and steady income from participation on PTC sites. The information gathered is now available to you in this guide. I have ensured to make all the information as clear as possible and simple to understand, even to those unfamiliar to PTC sites and the industry.

What is a PTC Website? A Paid-to-Click site is a website based program that pays you to click advertisements and participate in various offers. Paid to Click or PTC websites are the easiest and quickest ways to legitimately earn money online. These websites let you make money without tiresome effort, require no skills and are absolutely free. All you have to do is click a few ads, read a few emails or complete a few surveys.

January 10, 2012

Many PTC websites require you to click on an ad and view it for about 30 seconds to earn. When your account balance reaches the minimum payout value, you can request for a payout. Payments are generally made to a PayPal or AlertPay account. Staying active in a number of these programs lets you earn steady and regular online income. However, due to the boom in PTC industry there are more scam sites out there than genuine ones.

HowPTC sites work? PTC sites essentially pay you to click ads, view offers and visit websites. The process is quiet simple! Once an ad is presented to you, you click on that ad and browse the webpage opened for the time required. After the time has passed, the reward is credited to your account balance. In general, PTC sites pay you anywhere between $0.005 and $0.05 per each ad click/view. Furthermore, many PTC sites allow you to earn a lot more money by rewarding you with money your referrals earn! Each of your referrals can earn you anywhere from $0.001 to $0.01 per ad click/view, again depending on the ©2012. SANDYSWEBWORLD , ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

Requirements for using PTCsites  You need an email address - I recommend Gmail. It has excellent antispam control which can come in very handy  You need a PayPal account  You need an AlertPay account  One hour a day of your own time. I recommend you to invest at maximum 1 hour a day once you've established your referral network. Initially, you should invest more time in order to setup your referral network and learn the best practices and skills required to succeed in this industry.

Scoping out SCAMS /Legitimate Sites There are thousands of paid to click websites on the Internet and with that much money making programs, you can expect different experiences from site to site. Some users have had bad experiences. This is not always the fault of the PTC website, but generally the whole industry has got a bad name because of many 'fly-by-night' operators that open a BUX website for a few months and then disappear. One of the main reasons is they don‟t really know what they are doing and how much work and effort is involved. Remember almost every PTC will have some bad reviews and this is normal because there are so many people using them. Unfortunately, not everyone will be happy for different reasons, so make sure you spend some time researching the sites you want to participate in. Fortunately for you, I will teach you how to identify scams, and on top of that, included at the end of this guide is a List of all the proven scam sites. ©2012.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE – THE PTC EXPERT GUIDE Avoiding scam sites:

Research Background Check the business record by going to wis.net and also BBB. You can read how many complaints on the said establishment. Find out if there`s any company name or contact number listed for the site/company. Also attempt to search for the feedback of the site and if you cannot take the risks then do not apply with such site. If the site has an actual physical address, it is worthwhile to check if they are genuinely located at those premises. You may send them an email, even call them to prove that a real person answers your calls and your emails and gives you answers to your specific questions and not an automatic mail with canned responses.

Don’t Join Non-Customized Sites When finding a new site, look at the layout - is it professional and unique? This may not seem like a major influencing factor to legitimacy of the site, but it most definitely is. If the layout is visually unpleasant, then a site owner probably didn't put much time and effort into it. Some sites are just generally bad looking or covered in advertisements. This is a bad factor. You want to find a site that is professional, custom and in it for the long run. If the admins were in this business for the long run, they would make their sites unique and would have invested into a professional outcome.

Don't Purchase Anything! If you find a new site that seems "legitimate" and are considering purchasing something - don't. If the site is new with no real member base and no evident payment proofs, don't join. Let the site run for at least 4 months before purchasing upgrades to be on the safe side.

Don't Join Sites of Past Scammers If the site owner is known for scamming in the past, don't join the site. If they have scammed once, they will scam again, don't take the chance.

January 10, 2012

Don't Use Sites without Support/Forums If the PTC site doesn't have a decent support system or a forum where an administrator is active, don't use it. You should always try to get in touch with the admin, even if you send a simple enquiry to their email address or via a "Contact Us" form. If the admin doesn't make contact within 2 business days, you should avoid the site altogether.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE – THE PTC EXPERT GUIDE

Check the member list and the pay rate A site that attempts to hide the members list or how much they pay and try to be unclear about how they conduct business probably got something to hide. Check the sites payouts in the forums and at their proofs page. Note that it is easy to make up „proofs‟, so read in the forums about real people that have received payouts.

Read the TOS, FAQ and the help sections of the site In the TOS (Terms of Service, or Terms and Conditions) you can find a lot of answers to questions you may have. You should pay careful attention to the TOS and also make sure to read thoroughly through the site's FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) and the support section.

Sustainability "Sustainability is a characteristic of a process or state that can be maintained at a certain level indefinitely." (Wikipedia). In PTC terms, when a site is sustainable that means it can survive for years. A PTC which is charging less money than it pays is unsustainable and cannot live forever. Unsustainable sites are scams, period. It is inevitable that sites paying $1 to $100 per click are scams. Generally you can expect to earn $0.001 to $0.01 per click (standard member). As for your referrals, you can expect to earn anywhere from $0.0025 to $0.005 per each click. Sites paying more than $0.005 per referral's click (standard member) are unsustainable no matter what their advertising rates may be. Only one or two PTC sites can pay more than $0.005 per referral's click and ultimately survive.

Blacklists

January 10, 2012

There are many websites and blogs that keep an updated track of all the PTC sites that do not meet their end of the agreement. These SCAM sites should be avoided at all times so to ensure you are not wasting your time when you can be making money on other sites that do pay.

Staying Safe Never use your own money You never know if the site you have invested your time and money in will turn out to be a scam, so if you‟re going to invest, use money you have made from the site or other PTC sites. If you must invest money then don‟t put more than $30 -$40 so you can get it back fast.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE – THE PTC EXPERT GUIDE

Protect your PC Of course you already know that you must protect your computer from viruses, spyware etc. So you must have good antivirus/antispyware/firewall software. Also I suggest you to use Mozilla Firefox with AdBlock Plus and NoScript add-ons.Don't forget to clear all cookies(and if you want,all personal data) when you logout from a PTC site. The new versions of Chrome and IE 9 come with built in “cloaked surfing”, Firefox will not be far behind.

Do not use the same password on allPTC sites Some scammers create new PTC sites because they want to"steal" your personal sensitive information. If you do not want to see your accounts hacked, do not use the same password on every PTC site. Sometimes a PTC site may get hacked, and the hacker will then try the same username and password on various other accounts, emails, gateways, PTC sites etc… A good suggestion is to use 2-4 different usernames too. Finally, if you join the forum of a site, it is recommended that you use a different email account (and of course a unique password). Forums are being hacked usually easier in comparison with the main site

Do not cheat You will be banned. Don‟t do it!

Invest onlyif you can afford to lose all your money This is a basic rule applying not only in PTC, but in every type of investment. When investing, you are taking a risk: you may get your money back plus some earnings, you may lose it all.

January 10, 2012

Don't invest in new sites. The word "new" does not mean only sites which are only a few weeks old, but also those sites in which you are a new member. It is recommended that you avoid investing in new sites and that you stay a member for some time (and get paid too) before you invest.

The Presentation If you want to get more referrals faster than the “other people” then you need to build a web page to use as your business front. Just like a traditional business, you need a great looking entrance. A proper path to the front door. Your presentation site should include: a. Your auto responder capture form above the fold in the center of the page where it can be seen right away. Using this approach to include the form code at that location will ensure you build ©2012.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE – THE PTC EXPERT GUIDE your list at a fast pace. Why? Because your form will be one of the first things your site visitors will see. Voila! You are now building your list! b. A text listing of your top paying PTC sites that you are a member of. Providing a listing like this makes it easy for the visitor to easily select one of your sites to join. Using text instead of all banners helps speed up the time it takes your page to load so it doesn't stall the timer bar for members earning their cash for looking at your offer. Sure, banners look great – but they can be a resource hog and very distracting. Don't distract your visitors from the real purpose of your site – building your own list and direct referrals! 97% of the affiliate marketers out there are promoting their PTC affiliate link which is the most basic way to promote any program. We aren't saying this is the “wrong” way, but... there is a much better and more cost effective way that produces results so fast it will make you wonder why you never did it before. Remember that top 3%... you will be in the top 3% due to the information in this guide, if you utilize the information of course. :-) Traffic (people visiting your site) is a precious resource you must have in order to generate direct referrals. You don't want to waste it on just one site. Utilizing a mini page like a splash page - or preferably, a lead capture page - to build your list will be the tool that will put you in the top 3% that we mentioned above. There are several ways to create this splash page or lead capture page depending on your skill level and your available resources. 1. Basic HTML – You can easily create simple lead capture pages with lists of your favorite PTC sites using such programs like NVU, FrontPage, CoffeeCup, Notepad, and advanced Text editors if you learn the simple HTML codes used to create web documents. For those of you that had a temporary eye-glazing-over effect, keep reading. We aren't here to scare you, we are here to help you.

January 10, 2012

2. InstantSplash – This little program is one of the simpler splash and lead capture page editors online today. Plus, as an affiliate program, it pays you 50% commission monthly when your referrals upgrade. The upgrade is perfect for everyone because it's less than ten dollars per month. I consider this a vital business tool even though I can write HTML in my sleep. It's a time saver for busy business people like us. 3. Weebly – Here is a free web page hosting solution that offers advanced features allowing users the ability to add lead capture forms, videos, banners, audio, lists, and much more. For the cost of free, this is a real gem for anyone with little or no HTML skills because everything is done in WYSIWYG meaning you can see the changes as you apply them. Just in case you didn't know, WYSIWYG stands for “What You See Is What You Get”. Free however means that the site can be down sometimes – FYI. 4. Trafficwave – YES! I'll bet you didn't know that Trafficwave is not only a great autoresponder, but they will host unlimited lead capture pages for you … making this resource a must have. In fact you can have them host the pages you create or advanced users can use their letter creator, a

While there are many more programs online like the ones above, this guide is not a “be all end all” to the limitless resources found on the web today. Remember you cannot fall in love with your marketing material like capture pages because if they don't work, you will need to just modify them to create a new and better page! The tools above make it super easy. The pro's to making your own lead capture pages or splash pages that you hostonyourownsite are that you can add any third party ad system like Adverts to increase your overall advertising reach into the market place. You can also monetize it by offering e-books for sale related to the subject of your page, and offer additional affiliate resources that pay you a commission. The con's are that you will need to acquire a domain name and web hosting, learn a little HTML or use a WYSIWYG editor to create your pages, the autoresponder lead capture form, and of course, an abundant flow of traffic daily. Of course, if you use the resources discussed on the previous page, you don't have to learn all the “technical mumbo-jumbo” stuff. If you can read and follow directions and point and click then you'll be fine. If you are someone who can handle the HTML and related items to put your own page up on the web, you most likely already have your domain and web hosting in place. In case you don't have these online services, we have included a resource section here for your convenience. Bookmark the pages and then finish reading so you don't lose your place. 1.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE – THE PTC EXPERT GUIDE

Step 1 The first step to maximizing your profits is to pick first only PTC sites that you really like. Join every single PTC site out there and be very careful which sites you like. I have included a great list of all the legitimate and paying PTC sites online. You can find this list at the end of this guide.. Do not join more than 50 PTC sites as you may not be able to work on them all on a daily basis!

Step 2 The second step to maximizing your income is to only work on those sites that you picked out. It might be hard to only pick a few sites but it will help you in the long run. I mean, sure you can join a lot of sites and do a few offers here and there, however it will take you a long time to reach cash out. You might even get in trouble for fraud for doing the same offer twice. Lots of sites use different names for each offer. So it can be hard to know if you have done the offer or not in the past. It is easier when you are working with a limited amount of sites, but trustworthy ones.

Step 3 The third step is to promote only the sites you are working on. I have come across sources online where they urge you to promote all the sites you join. If you join a site and do not click on their offers, you will not find out if they really pay or not. You do not want potential referrals joining a site that will not pay them. If you own a website or a blog, you do not want potential referrals to see banners all over the place promoting exaggerated amounts of sites. It might overwhelm them and they may not want to join any sites because there are far too many to choose from. You only want to promote the sites that you are currently working with and sites that you have been paid from. You want your potential referrals to understand that you trust the sites you promote.

Step 4 The fourth step to maximizing your income is to keep a look out for when your PTC sites are having contests. Most PTC sites at present offer multiple contests during a single month. You have a chance to win free prizes for completing the most offers, getting the most referrals, and so forth. Make sure to check the contests and complete those offers so you can win some prizes.

January 10, 2012

Step 5 The fifth step is to make sure you know how much payout is. GPT payouts are usually higher than PTC ones because you can easily earn more money on a GPT site. I would say if you join a PTC site make sure the payout is not high and it will not take you forever to reach payout. If payout is over $11, I would not waste my time working on that site because it would take me forever to reach the payout.

Step 6 When you have decided which site you will be using and promoting, make sure you become a premium member for that site, this will increase your per click amount and also speed up your payout time. Don‟t become a premium member until you have accumulated at least 10 referrals. And keep clicking, don‟t neglect sites for too long or your account will become dormant and you will lose all your money and referrals.

More Tips Join 10 to 20 programs that are proven, trusted and that pay on time. Do multi tasking: use Mozilla Firefox instead of Internet Explorer. It is much safer. Open 5-10 different websites at a time and while you click on ads of one site immediately click on ads of 2nd site and then 3rd, 4th, 5th... Have patience clicking ads and don't give up even if you're clicking on your own, once you manage to reach your payout don't spend it, invest first in buying or renting referrals from your own favorite PTC site. This may guarantee that you will earn reasonable profits in the near future. Once you are earning a steady supply of cash, that's the right time to spend it for your own pleasure.

You might even earn more... Once you have been a member for a while and see for yourself that the site does pay, you might consider upgrading your membership or buying referrals. Upgrading your membership: Most PTC sites offer a premium membership (it might be called something different, like gold). This premium membership has many benefits: an increase in the amount that each click pays, an increase in the amount that you earn from your referral's clicks, and even an increase in the number of clicks available to you. Upgrading can virtually double your earnings, and is often inexpensive and well worth it!

January 10, 2012

Buying/renting Referrals. Most sites will offer sets of un-referred members that can be added to your downline for a price. This price varies, but usually it is well worth it. You should keep in mind that the site will not guarantee that the members will remain active. They will be active at the time that you buy them, but most sites will not replace members who become inactive. This action can increase your earnings by hundreds, because your referrals will earn for you. It is important to be sure that the site is legitimate before you make a purchase with your own money, because few sites offer refunds or replacements for inactive referrals. If you want to purchase referrals or Premium Membership, but you are not sure that you should trust the site, most sites allow you to purchase those things with your earnings. Until you are sure, you will just have to get referrals the old fashioned way - traffic exchanges!

Getting Referrals Getting referrals is a big part of how successful you are investing time in Paid-to-Click (PTC), Paid-toRead (PTR), affiliate programs or any other program where referrals have a direct impact on your income. Increasing the amount of referrals you have dramatically increases the amount of money you make. You will realize that there are many other people in the same situation trying to get people to join via their ref links also. So it‟s as hard as cracking nuts. Follow these tips and you sure will have some more refs in no time. Getting referrals takes some effort and time, but you can get a lot of referrals take the time to try and get them, for example, while you are doing your clicking open another tab and signup/post on some forums, add a post to your blog, all you need is 1 hour a day and you can click all your ads on 5-10 different sites and do some advertising all at the same time. Everyone is trying to get referrals so what can you do to have an edge and be the one who gets MORE referrals than the competition? Here are some tips for you.

Forums / Message Boards Place referral links in your signature, create a post containing your referral links, and link the "www" under your avatar to your forum post, now every time you write a response the signature will be placed automatically under your response. Don’t try to add links to your response because than you going to be a "spammer" and spammers get bend from all forums. This is very important! Some good forums to post on are your general forums about working from home as these people are looking for ways to make more income working from home. See the resource section at the end of this guide for a list of forums.

January 10, 2012

Blogs and Websites A blog or a website will help you keep track of the PTC sites you are currently on, it will also allow you to review some of the sites you have tried and advertise some of the ones you are currently using or trying out. Basically the nice thing about a blog is that it‟s a great way to keep track of what you‟re currently doing in the PTC world and to make this public so that you can make money from AdSense as well as gaining referrals to the PTC sites you are promoting. Try using one of the free blog sites around to start with and if you‟re happy then move to a more permanent one with your own domain name. Also you can promote your blog link in your forum postings too. This may be the most timeconsuming of all the methods, depending on how much time you spend on it. BUT it is well worth the effort if you do it right. ©2012. SANDYSWEBWORLD , ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE – THE PTC EXPERT GUIDE Squidoo is a perfect site to use as it gets tons of traffic and attention. Plus, you get to see how many people visit your lens as well as what links they click on. For the best results, you should build a lens that is informative, nice to look at and well-organized. If you build your lens well, you will get a high ranking and your lens will be featured on Squidoo search, and you will get tons of visits. You should take some space on your lens to explain what PTC is. This is in case a visitor comes to your site with no prior knowledge of PTC. You want to explain it in a way that is simple and inviting, but do NOT exaggerate. Please do not make false claims to get referrals. If you claim that they will make thousands a month, I promise that once they sign up and see 10 $.01 ads, they will do the math themselves. You don't just want signups, you want active referrals. To get active referrals, you have to show the visitor how they can succeed in this business. Otherwise, they will be discouraged by the small amounts they will earn at first. Emphasize patience and referrals. This is how they will make money with PTC, and if they make money, you make money. When you post your referral links (preferably banners), do not just string them all together, this is unappealing as well as uninformative. Visitors are impressed by numbers and stats. Tell a little bit about each one, do you have any comments on it? Which are your favorites? Fastest earners? Just give all the information that you think is relevant. This will inform the reader that you have put thought into it. The last thing you have to do is promote your site. This can be done in many ways. Squidoo has a frame breaker embedded in its code, so it will not work in Traffic Exchanges. The best way to promote is to post your link everywhere. If you have a MySpace or Facebook profile, post your link there. If you have another site on the web, link to your lens. Also post your link on all the forums you belong to. You should email your friends and family. Submit your website URL to Yahoo and Google. You can also get visits to your site by joining a group related to your topic. This is great traffic because those people are most likely already interested in your subject - a rapt audience. If you build a site that is appealing, convincing and informative, and you promote that site, you will get referrals. Not all your referrals will stay active, however many in fact will. Furthermore, the great fact is that they can leave you comments, so you can interact with them, help them and encourage them to be active.

Email

January 10, 2012

Send an email to everyone you know who might like the PTC idea or want to find additional PTC sites. Don’t go spamming people! Use appropriate etiquette to all people you send your emails too!

Refer people you know This might not be the best of ideas or appropriate in some situations but if you know some people out there who might like the idea of PTC then tell them about it and maybe tell them about your blog, website, forum post and so on. ©2012. SANDYSWEBWORLD , ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE – THE PTC EXPERT GUIDE The nice thing about PTC sites is you can tell everyone about them and about your blog and they are all FREE to join so no one will get „hurt‟ in the process if things go wrong, all they have lost is time, not money, but do warn them that you are aware PTC sites have a bad reputation and that you are trying to only promote the ones you personally believe in.

Live chat programs Advertising your referrals in online chat rooms and IM program scan get a lot of people‟s attention however makes sure to use the appropriate etiquette and ensure not to break the house rules by spamming.

Advertising in the real world Create flyer's and distribute them on public notice boards, hand to hand, advertising in newspapers, local news paper and so on... make sure it‟s appropriate and you obey any laws in your area. You will be amazed at how effective this can be especially on public bill boards.

Advertise on PTC and other types of sites Advertising using PTC sites, make sure that you don‟t advertising in the same PTC site that you are try to get Referrals because people that see your ad is already registered to the same site. Advertising on PTC sites is relatively cheap for the number of people that you will get seeing your advert, but it‟s not always very effective i.e. expect 1-2 referrals from every 500-1000 views. .

Advertise at Free Traffic exchange sites

January 10, 2012

Traffic Exchanges are basically sites that offer its members the ability to advertise their links and banners for free after viewing other links and banners. Here's how it works: You sign-up as a member of a Traffic Exchange site. You then must view ads like you do for PTC sites, but instead of getting paid for your clicks; you are able to advertise your banners and links. Traffic exchanges usually offer some type of ratio for exchange. For instance, a site that offers 1:1 ratio means that you can get one click on your referral link or banner for every one click that you make. You will surf for ad links in exchange for your own advertisements. Some of these sites may even pay you for surfing, so you will hit 2 birds in one stone.    

Making the most out of Traffic Exchanges: 1) Build a Splash Page! As you will see when you start surfing, you only have a brief moment to capture the viewers attention and get them to visit your site and sign up. If you don't, they will surf right past your page. So, you need a page that will load fast and get the surfer to click! In addition, often the signup page for your PTC is not all that inviting. You should do the selling if you want them to become your referral. Another important factor: sometimes when a surfer clicks on your Ref link, if they click onto another page to check out the website, you will no longer be their referral. You can avoid this by selling them on the site before they even click with a great splash page. So, where can you make a splash page? Splash pages are so simple and basic, that basically any page creator will work. I like Google Page Creator, as it is really basic and easy to use, and all you need is a Gmail account. Pages created with Google also load fast. 2) Plan to spend a few hours a day surfing. Try to spread your surfing time among several sites. This gives your site a broader audience. I would suggest surfing two or three at once; this is perfectly acceptable. 3) Make use of the bonuses that each site offers. Some sites offer huge bonuses that equal up to hundreds of views for your site. Take time to reach these bonuses and get free views for your site.

Referral Exchange Sites

January 10, 2012

One of the best ways to get referrals is to use sites that specialize in referral exchange. These sites offer its users the ability to get referrals in return for signing-up as a referral to someone else. The basic process works like this: You sign-up at a referral site as a member much like any PTC site. After you are a member you must then acquire credits that you will use later on as an incentive to get your referrals. You start by looking for a PTC, GPT, etc you want to join and the credits being offered by other members. You sign up for one that interests you and receive the offered amount of credits.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE – THE PTC EXPERT GUIDE These are the new trends in PTC today. You will be hiring packs of un-referred members for a month with much cheaper prices -let's say a pack of 10 members for just $3 per month. Furthermore whenever one of your members is inactive, you may replace them immediately the month after. This is a low risk investment! Purchasing un-referred members from the site is a common practice. The PTC site has many members who either did not sign up under anyone, or their referrer closed their account. These members then go on sale. You can buy them for a price usually ranging from $1-$2 per referral. In most cases, you will only get members that have been active recently. This method of gaining referrals is the easiest, all you have to do is pay for them and the rest is done for you. There is huge earning potential. As your down line grows, your earnings grow rapidly. There is only one condition: Most sites will NOT guarantee that the members you buy will be active after you purchase them. You may pay for 50 referrals only to see a week later that 10 of them rarely click, or worst yet, never. Basically this is an "at your own risk" method of getting referrals. Another important fact to note is that you should not purchase referrals from a site that you do not completely trust. There is word spreading around the PTC community that some scam sites are selling bots (automated clickers) as referrals. If this happens, the bot will either click minimally or stop altogether. You should always be careful when investing your own money in a PTC site. Please remember this, I do not want you to get scammed! You should do the math yourself. When you purchase referrals, you should be able to make your money back in 2 months at most. Take into account how much you make off of referrals as well as how many ads the site has each day. Only purchase referrals from sites where you will start making profit after 2 months.

Keeping your referrals active It‟s hard enough to acquire a referral, hence you want to try and get your referrals to stay active and keep clicking for you actively. Below are some methods that may assist.

January 10, 2012

What makes you click? Well it‟s the promise of money and the amount of effort required to get the money, so you need to make your referral. The best way to do that is to give them information and support. Create a section on your blog with lots of valuable information to help your referrals understand how to make more money and why clicking is worth the time, give them some resources on how to make their life easier. Help them plan their time and resources well so that clicking is not a pain for them, see end of document for some resources on making your life easier without cheating.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE – THE PTC EXPERT GUIDE Encourage your referrals to seek out referrals for themselves, if your referral is making money you will be making money, concentrate on the referrals that you have recruited yourself, and not the ones you buy from the PTC or referral sharing sites. Don‟t be nasty to them and don't get angry if they do not click. They do not have to click and it could ruin your reputation very quickly, simply move on and try to recruit more referrals. The bottom line is educate your referrals so that they understand HOW they can make money and if you can HELP them to get a couple of referrals for themselves, you could even run a competition amongst your referrals that whoever clicks the most in the next 20 days you will buy a set of referrals for them. Another thing you could do is ask the admin at the PTC website if you are able to „transfer‟ referrals to your referrals, if they will allow this then you can purchase say 20 referrals and give 10 of your recruited referrals 2 referrals each when they reach $1 or $2 or whatever amount. What will happen is that your referral will now have referrals and this will make them much keener to keep clicking! If the PTC site does not allow transfers of referrals, you could find out if they will sell a block of 2 referrals and simply purchase 2 referrals as per above. This endeavor may appear as a waste of money, however in the long run it is better to have fewer active referrals than hundreds of inactive referrals. Many of these active referrals may be your referrals on more than just one PTC site, which ultimately makes them a lot more valuable. Invest time in educating and convincing your referrals and it will pay off for the future.

PTC Websites to start with To start off with, I'd like to present you the 2 most reliable sites out there, from which I've received payments in the past for all my efforts. These 2 sites are here only to get you on your way to earning good money. As you get more and more involved and realize the potential, it is up to you to look for further opportunities using the skills I will convey to you in this guide. Furthermore, I have put together a list of all the proven legitimate PTC sites online at present. You can find this list towards the end of this guide.

January 10, 2012

NeoBux This site is by far my favorite and has the best track record in paying its members and making a lot of money for them. This website gives you anywhere from 4 to 10 ads per day to click within a 24 hour period of time as a standard member. This number jumps up to 10 to 20 ads for every 24 hours if you're a golden member. The golden membership costs $90 and is WELL worth it, but you do not have to buy it. Becoming a Golden, then Ultimate member is a very good way of making money.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE – THE PTC EXPERT GUIDE You make the most amount of money by renting or acquiring your own referrals. The more referrals you get to sign up, the more money you will make. Right now, I have about 330 Direct referrals, 6000 or so rented referrals and am making a monthly profit of around $220-270. The best part of the website is that you have so much information in the sites forum. Thousands of people like me and you write posts every day ranging from how to get more direct referrals to strategies on making more money with the rented referrals. This is a great tool that almost no other PTC (paid-to-click) site out there has. Again, I encourage you to sign up and spend some time looking around, clicking your daily ads, and reading the forums. It will take a couple of days or less to get the swing of things, but you'll pick up a lot of ideas and information at this site.

ClixSense This site is my second favorite! This site gives you many ads per day -anywhere from 5-10 for standard (free) members and 10-25 for Premium ($14.95) members. They have a very low cost upgrade to a premium member and best of all; you can use the money you make clicking ads on the site, to upgrade to a premium member -which means absolutely no out of pocket cost to you! I highly recommend becoming a premium member! It's $14.95, but you'll make that back in about a month or so! After that, it's pure profit! Sign into the site a few times a day to see what ads are available to click on in the Browse Ads $$ section. They have a great track record of paying via check every month!

January 10, 2012

The great part about this site is that it has two different ways of making money. You can click ads and make money, or use that money from clicking ads to advertise your other PTC websites. An example: let's say you sign up with NeoBux above, and then you sign up with ClixSense. You click ads in ClixSense until you have enough money to advertise. You can now go to the Manage Ads section and post your NeoBux referral link to advertise your membership. This is a great way of getting direct referrals to your other PTC sites for free. Upgrading here is a must and is also free if you wait until you have $10 in your account from clicking the daily ads they provide. It may take a month or two to get there depending on where in the world you reside, but none the less, once you upgrade, you'll get even more ads to click. Best of all, if you refer other people like I'm referring you, you make money off of them as well. Every person you refer you will receive $0.10 and each person they refer you will make money. It's really just a great way of making money for just surfing the web like most of us do anyways.
