Paid-To-Click (or PTC) sites offer advertisements for members to view. You click a link and spend anywhere from 3-60 seconds on the linked page to earn a little bit of money. The sites don’t pay a large amount per click and there are often only a limited number of ads available to click at any given time, so you aren’t initially going to earn a large sum. But over time you can earn a significant amount if you stick with it and refer other users. The KEY is to return daily (or multiple times throughout the day if possible) and click all the ads posted for that particular day.
It generally takes some time to accumulate the minimum payout amount on PTC sites. But ask yourself this question: how much money have you made in the hours and hours you’ve spent playing whatever the latest game craze is on Facebook?
The best way to increase your PTC earning is to get a down-line of referrals. But if you can ask all your Facebook friends over and over to play the latest version of Candy Crush with you or some other game just to advance your own progress in a time-wasting little game, surely you can also ask your Facebook friends to sign up for a service that allows you both to earn real money that you can spend in the real world on real things. Even without any referrals, you can still earn a little bit each day which builds up over time.
I regularly visit each of the sites below. Feel free to click the banners and familiarize yourself with the terms of each site as they all vary to different degrees. Some give you start up money for signing up, but have a higher cash out minimum. Others start out with a low cash out minimum and slowly raise it up each time you cash out until you reach the standard plateau level. Just be familiar with the terms before you sign up.
One word of caution: a fair amount of PTC sites have come and gone without warning. In the past, I’ve subscribed to a few where I regularly clicked ads and earned a few dollars, only to have the site disappear one day and not return. Those are usually brand new sites that are not well established or poorly set up and fail to generate a profit for the site owner.
You WILL encounter many cross referral links among these sites and will be “propositioned” by many of the less established PTC panels. I don’t vouch for any sites not listed below (that’s not to say that all other PTCs you might encounter are untrustworthy). The sites below are all well established and have a good reputation in the industry. I cannot “guarantee” that these sites will all stick around, but, unless otherwise indicated, I have had good luck with them all so far.
Wordlinx and Neobux work on similar models. Visit every day, click all the ads, get paid. They have been slow but steady PTCs without any payment or membership issues. I joined both in the spring of 2010. Wordlinx has brought in over $59.00 while Neobux has also paid me over $186.00.
UniqueRewards includes online offers, videos, PTC ads and more! They will give you $5.00 just for signing up and will pay you extra for any offers that you complete in the first two days after you confirm your account.
I joined UniqueRewards in February of 2016. So far I have earned over $43.00.
Some of the ads that PTC sites send you to are the very web sites attempting to hook you on the more grandeur promise to “Make Tons of Money on the Web” – trying to sell you a seven figure income if you just buy their program model. Don’t be fooled. I often click through the links and ignore the content on the destination page — just put in my 15 or 30 seconds and move on. But how you operate is up to you. Every now and then I come across a site that I think just might be legitimate and look into it a little bit deeper. Just be aware that if it sounds too good to be true: it most likely is. Once, again, I trust the sites linked above, but can’t vouch for the sites that advertise with them.
DO NOT join any site or service that requires you to pay a fee up front!!!
It is possible on some PTC sites to increase your earning potential by upgrading to premium memberships. I have done this on a few sites myself (paying for the upgrade fee using the money I already earned from that site, so nothing ever really came out of my pocket). But if any site REQUIRES payment up front as part of the sign up process – RUN AWAY FAST!
