Is ClixSense a scam?
This is a question that I hear a lot when it comes to Pay To Click or PTC websites and NO ClixSense is not a scam. Last week I wrote a review on Neobux which is a similar type of website because it also specializes in making money from ad clicking. I am not a big fan of PTC websites because it is just not a good way to make money.
Read further to hear why I say so.
The important stuff
Redemption Threshold: It is $8 for standard members and $6 for premium members.
Payment Method: PayPal, Payza, Paytoo and check
Cost to join: Free
ClixSense is a PTC website where you can make money by clicking on ads which is given by website owners to advertise their products. You can also say that it is a Pay Per Click or PPC website such as Google adwords, but much cheaper and a lot less quality.
They also have other way to make make money such as surveys, offers, games and tasks that you can do to earn money. This is one of the better PTC sites because is gives you a variety of ways to make money.
Reviews on other survey panels
What I dislike about PTC sites
I will not say that I “hate” PTC sites, because it is such a hard word, so I am going to use “dislike” as it sounds sweeter to the ear. The only way to really make money with this type of sites is to get referrals to it and you need to have a thousands of referrals to make it worth is.
You will never make real money just by clicking on ads the whole day. Let me do some math with this so that you can see my point. Most of the ads are either $0.01 which takes 30 seconds while other ads are $0.02 and takes 60 seconds. This gives you a hourly rate of $1.2 which is a waste of time and effort.
Another thing that rings a bell is that someone on the other end is paying you to click on their ads. Now that does not make sense. I would not waste my money on an advertisement platform where people do not have the intention to buy anything from me. It is like paying people to sit in your coffee shop and they all order water which is for free.
PS. If you hear of a website that claims that they will pay you $1 per click, then it is a scam and the only thing you have to click on is that little red x on the top right hand corner of your screen.
A Few good pointers to know
- Very low redemption threshold. You need a minimum of $8 to cash out your money which is not that bad. If you are a premium member, you need to have $6 which is even better.
- They use PayPal. This is one of the first things that I look at before joining a program. If they want to send me a check then they can just as well forget it. Checks can get lost and if you are lucky, you can get it after a month. Then you still have to go to the bank to cash out.
- They have a variety of ways to make money. Luckily they are not restricted to only ad clicking.
- They have a referral program. This is about the only way on how you can really make money from this type of sites.
How to make the most money from Clixsense
I am going to skip the ad clicking section and I think you will agree with me on that 🙂
Their surveys is actually not that bad. You can also look at their video to see some examples. They can range from $0.5 up to $5 per survey and the longest one I saw was the one that was 30 minutes long. I think they might have potential when it comes to the surveys, but I also see that you have to join other survey panels through them.
I would recommend that you join these panels directly because if you cut out the middle man, you will make more money for yourself. Some of these survey panels include Toluna, Global Test Market and Harris Poll. I also advise you to complete your profile survey so that you can get more relevant surveys to complete.
Offers is where you need to sign up to a website or download something on your phone or computer. There are also 2 types of offers that you must be aware of. First you have free offers where you can do something for free and get rewarded for it and then you get pad offers.
With paid offers you need to pay for a subscription or buy something in order to earn money. Some people are very cautious when they are using paid offers and they should be. You need to earn more for that offer then you are spending. For example if you need to buy a product of $10 and you get $15 for buying it, then you made a profit of $5.
Also remember to cancel your free trial 2 days before it ends if you do not want to buy the product.
3) Getting Referrals
This is the best way to make money with survey and PTC sites, but it is also one of the hardest. You need to be able to have your affiliate link in front hundreds of viewers to really benefit from it. First you get $0.0001 to $0.002 for each time your direct referral clicks on an ad and when he/she decides to join the premium membership which is $17 per year, you will earn $2.
However if you are a premium member you will earn $2 once your referral upgrade and $1 when someone in the 2nd-8th tier decides to upgrade. You also get 10% commission if your referral buys anything and 5% of what they make from offers and tasks
The referral program does not look that bad and you can actually make a lot of money from it if you do it correctly. you also need a lot of referrals to make it worth it. I also have a whole article dedicated to getting referrals and it is also done the right way.
I also have a great article available that are about getting referrals.
Want to make money with survey sites?
The only reason why I joined this website was because they have surveys and offers. There is also other websites that will bring you cash to your doorstep. I also created a free training guide that might help you to get started with online surveys.
As you can see, Clixsense is a legit website and I also told you in this review what you should do to make money with this it. Please feel free to leave me a comment below 🙂
