    Hey, Sweggy

    As idea it is nice but PTC traffic doesn't have too much value. So your CTR on ads will be extremely low . If any

    Because I think that most of ad network like adsense do not allow this kind of traffic for obvious reasons like low quality, high bounce rate etc

      Aslong as it doesn't effect my Google ranking I don't mind

      Iam not really looking from sales from the traffic but instead seeing if iam can make money from investing a decent amount into the PTC site.

      It's better than sitting in my bank

          Hi Sweggy,

          I hope that you know that PTC is a scam, right?

          The only people that make any money at it are the people running the scam or working for the scammers.

          I gather from your post that you don't mind being scammed a little yourself as long as you can get in on the scam and make some money for yourself, right?

          Now here is where your maths skills might come in handy:

          The largest PTC centers operate out of Bangladesh, they typically pay about $1 day for a 10 hour day of clicking ads while being closely supervised to make sure they are clicking as many ads as possible.

          The typical full-time worker at a PTC center makes only pennies per hour of work. If you are based in a first world country, like the USA, you might be able to triple that rate, perhaps even earning as much as $1 per hour if you really know how to hustle and can use multiple devices.

          However, if you happen to live in a 1st world country, there are probably thousands of better paying opportunities to earn money with your free time. Try McDonalds, they are usually hiring, and pay way better per hour. So, unless you live in someplace like Bangladesh, you probably ought to reconsider your plans. Just saying.

    You said you wanted legitimate clicks though and you're not going to be getting that. Just like you want to make money clicking on other people's ads, that's all other people are doing too. You might get the very rare person that is actually interested but people clicking on an ad because they are paid to are not legitimately interested in your ad or offer 99% of the time.

      It was the biggest selling product of 2015, however it is expensive

      They might not be interested straight away but iam confident they will bookmark which and iam happy with that, as long as iam earning on the revenue shared in return on the investment for traffic

      even if I invest 1k and dont see a huge ROI straight away iam fine with that

      But which is the best most secure site to do this with?

    Incentivized clicks are usually non-niche targeted.

    That's all you need to know when considering ANY traffic source.

    The people over at PTC sites sit in front of their computers and click ads to earn like $0.001 per click (I'm not sure). It'll be really hard to get them to buy something.

    If you are an advertiser getting traffic you would be paying for the clicks, not sharing the revenue. The revenue comes from advertisers (you) in return for crappy traffic (people clicking ads to make a few pennies).

    How much budget do you have to pay for PTC traffic and what do you expect from it?

    Really all you will get is a boost in your traffic stats. It is unlikely you will get any conversions, sales or Opt-ins.

    The main thing you need to know, as was mentioned above, is the traffic you receive will be untargeted and low value. People are clicking to make a few pennies, they are not clicking because they want to see your site.

    The quality of the traffic you get is very poor. Frankly, you will get like zero conversions. Get ready to lose some money. Also, serious sites like sad sense can ban you. People often use PTC traffic to artificially boost their scores. That is before they sell their web sites on Flippa or similar services. I do not rec PTC any. Well, that have been my own experience. Might work if you have a freebie site as the people using PTC are very poor. They are either low or no income. Still, they might be persuaded to click on a FREE give away.

    Please understand that PTC or paid to click is the worst kind of traffic because these people are not interested in what you are selling, but only in generating more income. Therefore they are not going to become your consumers ever. Here are some reasons:

    • no income
    • live in another country
    • speak another language and cannot read your website.

    Hey Sweggy,

    I have an easier method for you...

    Originally Posted by Sweggy View Post

    Instead of paying out £2k, just send £1k to my Paypal account.

    You won't have to click. I won't have to click.

    You'll get an immediate ROI of 100%, because I'm letting you keep the same amount you invest.

    Here's the really good part...
    the traffic you receive from this (zero) will have the same value as you would have received from any PTC site PLUS it won't consume ANY of your bandwidth.


    P.S. I know this is a really good offer, but everyone needs traffic - so I'm not putting a time limit on this. It's not just for Sweggy. Anyone who is interested in this offer, just decide how much you want to invest, and send half of that amount to my Paypal account.
    • As good as any PTC available on the market today (or ever, for that matter)
    • 100% ROI (immediate)
    • BONUS Huge bandwidth savings - this alone is worth an additional 10% of your low cost

      Money listed on a website isn't real until it's paid to you and is in your hands as cash.

      Though you've mixed currencies, your friend will get the initial 'investment' back in 25 days. Only on day 26 would your friend be in profit...and that's IF the 'revenue share' is stable. Good luck with that.

      Only one person said "scam" - it's bad traffic, unprofitable as an 'investment' - but it's your money. If it's what you want to do - do it.

    I wouldn't say PTC sites like Neobux and Clixsense are scams, but the quality of the traffic is terrible.

    I experimented with it in the past and I think one time I bought 10,000 clicks to one of my squeeze pages and I got around 7 opt-ins.

    Most of the people who belong to these sites sit around and click on ads for pennies and never even really look at the website that comes up. They mostly look at the timer so they can hurry up and click the next page so they can make their one or two cents per click.

    The OP seems to have his mind made up that these people are going to be responsive and even bookmark the page and come back later to make a purchase. That is not going to happen. It's a fantasy. The only thing that is going to happen here is the OP is going to invest his money and see a 0% ROI.

    The only people who make money with PTC are the people that own the sites and the people who have a large advertising budget and can get thousands of referrals under them.

    Sometimes people just have to learn the hard way. That's going to be the case here.

    OP, people are just trying to save you and others from losing money. It's not going to hurt any of us if you go ahead with your plan. And if you need to try it for yourself and you don't mind the risk of losing 100% of your investment, then you don't have to listen to any of us. Even with good investments you can lose all your money.

    I once owned a stock that was valued at $1.22 million dollars (for the amount of shares that I had). At the time of that valuation, I couldn't sell the stock because it was not fully vested yet. A completely unpredictable external event occurred - a major tragedy - that caused the stock to crash. By the time I was vested, it was worth $26,000. You don't need a calculator to do the unfortunate math there - I lost $1.2 million.

    Unlike you and your friend, I understood that the $1.2 mil was not actually mine to count and that it was only worth whatever price I would eventually sell it for. I only count money that is in my bank accounts and that I have access to spend. I eventually sold the stock for a huge loss (less than $38,000) since it never recovered (the highest it ever got again was just a few thousand over my selling point). Your friend did not make $20 profit in the last day. He is currently at -350, not +20. Now maybe he will eventually make a profit and maybe he will take a loss. But until you actually have that money in your possession, it does not exist for you.

    The kind of revenue sharing that you are talking about is a terrible business model and there is a good reason why most of these end up eventually getting shut down by the government. This is not legitimate rev sharing, like a company that is making money from external sources selling a valuable product or service. This is incestuous rev sharing that is dependent on making money from the investors investing. This type of model by nature results in most investors losing all of their money while a minority profit off of basically stealing other investors money. Besides the horrible ethics of it, it's not sustainable.

    It's up to you if you want to get involved in that, but now there is no illusion left for you about what it is you would be getting into. As far as selling your high priced product to people clicking on your ads - most of the people clicking on your ads could not come up with $10 if their life literally depended on it. So, even if someone did pay attention to your ad and your landing page and thought it was the greatest thing they ever heard of, they are not going to be able to afford it.

    Anyway, I know you've already decided to do this, but just wanted to explain things for unsuspecting people reading this who didn't understand what these sites were really about.

I can put you in contact with a facebook friend of mine who will show you he has made 30k (before reinvesting) from Traffic Monsoon. Do yourself a favor and research rhe owner Charles and his previous ptc sites like infinity bux to name one.

    You are better off building a real business you control, but IF you still want to do it...

      . We're transitioning from using PayPal to opening our own TM World Bank.
      In another statement, TM claims it will soon 'replace paypal' as an international payment processor. Does anyone believe that?

      Translation to experienced marketers: "Paypal closed our acct".

      The "bank" will be located in Dubai and will issue debit cards where your "earnings" will be distributed....how do you get the money off your debit cars? That's a bit unclear but Payza is mentioned several times.

        It's true that Traffic Monsoon is becoming wildly popular. I have been hearing about it all over the place. I've even been getting some emails from some well known marketers promoting it. All I can say is that yes, people are making money with it right now, but the way that business model is set up it's bound to implode sooner or later. The way it seems like it works to me is that they are paying current investors their dividends using money that is coming in from new investors. That sounds an awful lot like a Ponzi scheme to me.

        What happens when the number of new investors coming in is not enough to pay off the existing investors? Some people don't get paid. Then more and more people don't get paid. Soon enough you go to log into your account and guess what? You get a message saying the site is under maintenance and will be up soon. The problem is it never comes back up.

        Also, from the limited research I have done I have learned that the owner of TM has already gone under several times with this business model.

        Here's a decent article from a respected PTC review blog that contains more info about the person the OP is considering giving his money to:

        Here's another article about a site the owner of TM previously had called InfinityBux:

    Invest in some other Traffic source but not PTC as i have already done in 011 when i started so its my advice invest in solo ads or any other source which do not give any incentive to the visitor for clicking on your link ,I would rather want them to click on their own and this is what we call hot traffic

    Hope this helps

      becoming wildly popular
      Seems to be due to a massive advertising campaign and an affiliate program that pays a decent commission.

      What disturbs me about the particular PTC site is the trajectory of growth/claims/promises is quite similar to 10 years ago when 6dailypro was THE PTC site...and wildly popular.

      The claims of "moving away from paypal" are the same - caused by Paypal freezing accts - there are many similarities. BUT - 12dp was US based so it was the feds moving in that shut it down. Who protects you from a company operating their own bank (they say) in Dubai?

      I hope if the OP chooses to do this - we'll at least get an update in a couple months about $$$ in vs REAL $$$ out and traffic results. There's no substitute for learning by doing.

    Why not invest your money into something different and much more proven to work? (and be much more profitable?)

    If you want one of my autobots to click on your site 3000 times per day and you'll pay me $300/day to do it.... then we got a deal.
