Happy new year everyone, I trust that all of you have resolved to make this year better than the last. I certainly have and part of that will involve finding new ways of earn extra money online.
I hope this year to increase my earnings from what averaged to about $50.00 a month to double that. Next stop $100.00 dollars a month. I have traken the money that I have earned and this year I have the option of re-investing it to make more.
I have a few ideas that I have been think about using for sometime now and now that the new year is upon us, now is the perfect time to take some chances and try to implement some new earning oppertunities. Check back to this site often as I will continue to share what I am up to and how it has worked out, over the next month or two.
This month I was very happy to receive my 8th payment from SmileCity. $30.00 deposited right into my bank account. No problems to report from this excellent site
This site is continuing to do well earnings from it has increased to $18.20 this month. Unfortunately one of my advertisers are re-branding currently and maybe a while before I am able to add to the site and continue earning from advertising.
Not many sign ups this month, but earning are still increasing, in particular Clixsense which has quite a few new ads and are now paying for each referral signed up as promotion.
Total – $4.09USD = $5.22NZD (approx)
Total – $10.50NZD
Bitcoin – $0.19NZD
Affiliate advertising – $18.20NZD
site hosting – $12.87NZD
Total earning: $34.11
Payments recieved: $30.00
Total –> $34.11 – $12.87(hosting) = $21.24NZD earned.
Earnings continue to slowly increase this month, I earned a total of $21.24 NZD.
Is it possible? Sure, I guess that anything is possible, but getting rich on PTC sites alone is very unlikely. First of all, you will have to join sites that actually pay you. There are only a handful of reputable sites that pay consistantly and honestly amongst the literal 100s of paid to click sites that have cropped up. Most of these site disappear quickly as it is difficult to recruit members who consistantly click ads. Of course, the site owners can still make a lot of money from advertisers before the site fails and dissapears.
Most people use these sites by simply clicking and ad, waiting for a timer to run out and getting credited a small amount (usually half a cent or a cent rarely 2). Some sites offer much larger payments, but don’t be fooled, getting $1.00 per click is unsustainable and you will not be paid when you request a payment. It is very unlikely you will get rich following this method, even if you joined many sites and spent hours clicking you would likely only get paid $3.00 or so per day.
The way anyone is able to make any money from these sites at all, is by referring others. Everyone that you can get to sign up to a PTC site through your referral link, earns you (the refer) money for every click they make. Usually this is just a small fraction of what you would get for clicking the ads yourself but your referras can click many more ads then you and this will add up to some decent money. You probably won’t make much from 1 referral or even 10. Most who are making money from paid to click sites have referred hundreds or even thousands of referrals. Your ability to make money on paid to click is based on how many referrals you are able to attract. For tips on attracting referrals click -> here.
I have finally received my 8th payment from SmileCity after the 4 week waiting period. I don’t have the official email proof yet (*edit: I have now uploaded the correct image as proof), but my account says it has been sent and it has arrived safely in my bank account.
So, there we have it, my 8th payment and this brings my total to $240.00. I have been trading my points every time my balance has reached 3300 for $30.00 NZD and my earnings have really picked up recently as I have been referring more and more people through this site. Many people have been reading about the money I have been making through SmileCity and have been signing up to share in the earnings themselves. SmileCity is the best survey site I have found for people who are living in NZ. It is a reliable site that has been around for many years now and has more surveys and earning opportunities by far than any of the other sites I have used.
I earn most of my points from small daily surveys, larger full surveys and referring others to the site. Each time one of my referrals earns 400 points, I get 200. As you can see from my payments, all of these points start to add up to some real earnings. SmileCity is free to join as always and you can sign up using the link below.

Clixsense will now be paying you for each referral that you sign up. This promotion actually started last month, but ClixSense has extended it for another month and because it is running over christmas, they have increased the amount. Until Jan the 9th, each premium member will get $0.15 per referral sign up and each free member will get $0.07 for every referral that signs up.
Clixsense syas that it has been having lots of luck with this promotion and if members continue to promote the site the affiliate promotion is likely to continue. So consider this as my push for this great PTC site, I have been using it for over 2 years, never had a single issue in getting paid and have had 4 payments. With more on the way. Join ClixSense now, start referring others and get paid.

The extra work I did on freesamples.co.nz this month has started to pay off, my earning from affiliate advertising incresed greatly from $0.00 to $13.00. I always knew that people like free stuff.
Wasn’t really expecting this site to be around for long, but I did manage to make $1.00 off of it before it went under…

If you are serious about earning extra money online, you probably have countless accounts with various websites all requiring a login and password to access. This week I thought I would offer some words of caution that may prevent your accounts from becoming comprimised and possible drained of any money you have in those accounts.
Too many people use the same password across multiple sites meaning that if one site is comprimised than all of your accounts can be accessed. What’s more, if there is someone of dubious morals working inside one site, what is to stop him/her from accessing your account with other sites? This is very true if you are using paid to click sites. Anyone can set up a PTC site, and they might try using your user name and password on some of the other popular PTC sites and clean withdraw any money you have in them.
Always use different password for different sites and do not use obvious password. With the popularity of social media sites, much of your personal information is publicly available, so please do not use the name of your dog or the birthday of your child. Anybody trying to break your password will probably try these things first.
If you are very serious about your internet password security, I highly recommend the following article as further reading: http://arstechnica.com/security/2013/07/how-elite-security-ninjas-choose-and-safeguard-their-passwords/
When using paid to click sites to earn extra money, you will need to refer new users to the site in order to really start making any decent profit. This is the longest and hardest part of the process. I have touched on before how you can attract referrals using blogs like this one or sharing the links with your friends and family, but last week I tried out a site that does an excellent job of organizing the paid to click programs you are trying to promote into one easy to read and attractive format, and what is more it is totally free.
PTCpad has done what I am surprised no one has done before them, in fact I wish that I had thought of it. Simply sign up and select which sites you would like to promote, enter your referral links and you will be given a link to a page that has organized the banners of all your favorite PTC sites for you to start promoting straight away. It is so easy that it took me less than 7 minutes to set up my page. No kidding, literally less than 7 minutes that is how easy it is.
You can pay to get a premium page with detailed click stats and the like, but if you haven’t the time or skill to create your own website, it is totally free and incredibly easy. Have a look at my page -> here. I only want to promote four sites, but the page will look even better if you wish to promote more than that. You can sign up and make you own -> here.
Well that is it. Paid to Like is no more. Went to withdraw my second payment only to find the website has been shut down. I didn’t have a lot of faith in the site to begin with, but after I received my first dollar, I was hopeful that things might continue.
Paid to Like was breaking Facebook‘s terms and conditions by selling likes and paying people to like pages. I never felt like my Facebook account was at risk, but I did think that Paid to Like might get shut down one day.
My guess is the big guys at Facebook forced it to shut down or the website administration was no longer finding it profitable as there did seem to be problems getting advertisers. Either way that is the end of that and I will be removing links on my pages. Didn’t really have much invested and never had to spend too much time with it, so didn’t lose much, but always remember to join only sites that have proven track records, good reputation and ample payment proofs. You don’t want to waste you time and money on sites that may not pay you in the long run.
