What is a PTC site?
PTC stands for Pay To Click. These websites pay you around $.01 (maybe more, maybe less) for every 30 second advertisement that you watch. Advertisers will pay the PTC sites say $40 and that will guarantee them that around 1,000 people will view that 20-30 second advertisement (which is usually just a simple landing page on a website), and some of that money gets passed on to you as you sit in front of your computer and make money one cent at a time. It may sound like you could not hardly make anything with PTC sites, and that would be true, if it weren’t for the referral programs they all have.

What is a direct referral?
This is how it works: For everyone you get to sign up through your link you get anywhere from 50% to 100% of what they make as well. So if I get 10 people to watch 10 ads per day, I will make a dollar a day. And if I have 100 people clicking 10 ads per day I will be banking in $10 a day and $300 per month. How do you get those referrals? When you start building those referrals is when the money really starts to pour in.

What is a rented referral?
Most PTC sites allow you to rent referrals for about $0.20 per month for the one each in hopes that those referrals will click those ads every day  to make up that twenty bux plus a lot more. The pool of referrals that you can rent is made up of people who joined the site without a referral and so they are subject to be rented.

What is a referral link?
The referral link is the link through which you build downline at a PTC site or any kind of websites that allows you to bring referrals and earn money on their activity. The link can be in simple format just like you receive it from the PTC site or as an image link (banner).
Here is an example of your referral link: http://www.the-ptc-site.com/?ref=your-ptc-username/

Is there scam PTC sites?
The bad news  about PTC sites  is that most of them fold up in just a few short months. They are complete scams. They will try to get people to buy as many referrals as possible and then when they have raked in a lot of money they will close the website instead of paying their customers. A PTC site will start going down hill when it says it has to delay payments. This means they are broke and they will try to delay paying as long as possible and try to get more people to sign up and buy referrals. I would not trust any PTC site that takes longer than 20 days to pay you (I will make a list of scam PTC sites as soon as possible).

How to get direct referrals?
You can get direct referrals by promoting your referral link in social media websites like Facebook and Google+, using traffic exchanges, referral exchanges, downline builders, creating blogs and websites…etc (I will create a detailed post about this subject).

Do I need to read the T.O.S (Terms Of Service)?
Before you register to any PTC site make sure you read the terms of service (TOS). This is the most important step you will have to make because if you don’t, you might not be in profit. Also don’t forget to check the available memberships and their prices and think about a good strategy (or check this blog to find one!) before clicking at any ad.
