Is it really possible to make money just clicking on advertisements? Yes, it is. Is it possible to make millions of dollars doing so? I won't say it's impossible, but I haven't seen anyone do it. I have, however, seen people post pictures of PayPal credits and check stubs where they have been paid hundreds and thousands of dollars from GPT (get-paid-to) and PTC (paid to click) programs. Some people put a lot of effort into the sites by clicking on the advertisements and doing surveys everyday. Some people participate by clicking on a few advertisements everyday, but put more effort into getting referrals. Either way, PTCs and GPTs are both great opportunities to earn anywhere from $1 to $1,000 a month.
What are PTCs and GPTs?
On a paid to click site, members can register for free with the option to pay to upgrade their accounts. An upgrade isn't necessary at all to make money, but my understanding is that it may boost your earnings in the long run. Still, I choose the free options. Once members are registered with the site(s) they can earn money by clicking on advertisements placed by advertisers and other members. These advertisements have timers that last anywhere from three seconds to 60 seconds. The pay for the ad is determined by the length of the ad. sixty second ads are likely to pay closer to $0.02 while three second ads may pay less than a penny. Less than a penny? I know that may seem like a slap in the face, but it adds up quickly. Members of paid to click sites can earn more money by completing various tasks on the website and by referring others. Some sites have programs where members can get paid to complete offers and free trials.
How much money can I make?
Honestly, in the the beginning, not much. Over time it can become very lucrative. If you really want to make money in this, you need to treat it as a business and work at it diligently, especially if you only click on the advertisements and don't do any of the additional tasks or surveys. Even with the surveys and offers you may only make a few dollars your first couple of weeks, but once you get the ball rolling, there's no stopping. With a little bit of effort everyday you can turn your pennies into dollars by clicking on your advertisements daily and getting referrals. Many sites have a referral rental program in which you can reinvest your earnings. For a small fee you can rent referrals and earn a commission from their activity. There have been PTC members who have posted payment proofs of earnings well over $1,000. Of course, they worked hard to get it.
