Yes, PTC sites
are free to join.What are PTC sites:
PTC or Paid-To-Click sites pays their members for browsing their sponsor's websites.
There are usually ~4-10 advertisements to click on a daily basis.
For each site browsed You get about 1 US cent. Yes, this is a funny sum How to make decent money with PTC sites:
To make 100's of dollars weekly (and even daily) PTC sites offer their members so-called "referral programs".How does PTC referral program works:
In "banners" (or "promotion") area of Your account there is an affiliate link (also known as referral link
It often looks like this:http://ptc-site-name.com/?ref=your-referral-id
If someone join the PTC site via this link (opens it in their internet browser)
Then this person is considered as Your direct referral
.What are benefits of having referrals on PTC sites:
You get half-a-cent per Your referral's website visit of PTC site sponsors (also known as click
You can see Your direct referrals statistic in "Direct Referrals
" section of Your account.
This statistic shows You when each referral joined the site, how many click he/she made, average clicks per day etc.
Now imagine having 100's or even 1000's of referrals in each of Your accounts.Example:
You joined 5 PTC sites (It's easy and free and takes just about 3 min. each).
You reached 500 referrals on each PTC account.
That's about 2000 referrals clicks per day x 5 PTC sites = about 10 000 referral clicks DAILY
For each click You get about half-a-cent.
That's 10 000 clicks x half-a-cent = about 5 000 cents = 50 USD DAILY
This is in the case of having standart (free, non-paid) account.
If You buy upgrade (90 USD per Year usually)
then You get 2 cents per Your click + ~9 ads to click daily
and the most important: not half-a-cent but 1 cent per referral's click.That's ~$100 Per Day
Not bad at all, right?How to get PTC referrals:
There are 2 types of PTC referrals:
1. Direct referrals.
Those people who joined PTC site via Your referral link are considered Your direct referrals.
The simplest ways of getting direct referrals are:
a) Traffic Exchanges
You join Traffic exchanges for free.
Then surf websites for credits.
Then Spend credits on Your referral links (insert your ref. link into "My site's URL").
More You surf, more credits can be spend on Your referral links,
More exposure it gets, more direct referrals You get.
b) Downline Builders
You join Downline builders for free.
Then You join some PTC and other sites You are not a member yet to earn credits.

Will join as Your referrals to earn themself credits.
This is possible because of 100's and 100's of PTC sites online.
There is also an option to view Ads to earn additional credits.
2. Rented referrals
PTC sites offer their members to rent unreferred members for a small fee.
You can use Your main or rental PTC ballance to rent some referrals for a period of 30 days.
Here is a main rule to stay in profit while renting:
Keep only those referrals who have average of 2+ clicks per day.
Rent ~3-5 new referrals each week and pay for those who were active enough (2+ clicks /day average).
The best part of using PTC sites as alternative to casual affiliate marketing is that You don't have to sell anything at all: people don't have to pay money in order for You to get comissions.
Keep You mind focused on a main goal: reach as much referrals (both direct and rented) as possible.
This will not happen overnight, but it will happen in a matter of months.
And one last but VERY
You HAVE TO Click on PTC advertisements Daily to get comissions from Your referrals clicks.
You skip a day - You get no comissions.
But let this not fright You: this takes just about 5-10 min. per day to Click all Advertisements (Ads) if You use 5 PTC sites.
