What if I told you that there are websites that pay you to literally do things?
You’d probably categorize and shelve me with the bunch of loonies selling magic pills and instant weight loss creams online. And I would not blame you.
For the uninitiated, the concept of getting paid to do random stuff online is a myth at best and a scam at worst.
But there are thriving industries and websites out there that do get paid to do these things.
Welcome to the world of GPT and PTC.
What are PTC sites and GPT sites?
Literally, PTC stands for Paid to Click sites or Paid to Click websites.
GPT, on the other hand, stands for Get Paid To websites.
A GPT website will offer members payment to make different actions or perform different tasks.
It could be as simple as filling out webforms for a website, answering quizzes, playing online games, filling surveys, watching a video and clicking on advertisements.
Payment can vary but the standard range can start as low as $0.05 cents to $1 dollar for every action depending on the difficulty and skills or attention needed.
PTC sites, on the other hand, pay people for clicking on links and ads.
THE UGLY TRUTH
A lot of websites cater PTC and GPT services, and while some are legitimate services that test out forms, marketing funnels, and advertising materials online, some are legitimate scams.
Although they do pay their members, their business model is not really sustainable because they tend to alienate their contractors and not really help their business model grow.
SPOTTING THE SCAM
Knowing that some PTC and GTC websites are scams, how do you spot them and become wary of these websites?
Here are a couple of simple tips to see if the PTC and GTC website that you are trying to get into is a scam.
Ask the following questions about the PTC and GTC website that you want to get into and see if everything checks out.
- How long have they been online?
- Have they been linked to scams in the past?
- Do they pay out to their members?
- What are the stories surrounding them?
HOW LONG HAVE THEY BEEN ONLINE?
It’s important to ask any PTC or GTC website their length of tenure or how long have they been in the game.
Many PTC and GTC websites that are involved in scams get shut down or change names.
It’s difficult for a dishonest PTC or GTC website to stay online for more than 2 years if they are known to be linked to shady operations.
HAVE THEY BEEN LINKED TO SCAMS IN THE PAST?
Same as number one, no scamming PTC or GTC site survives the test of time and tide.
Affiliate programs will quickly expel PTC or GTC programs that cheat their principals or their members.
If there’s smoked, there’s probably fire somewhere.
DO THEY PAY OUT MEMBERS?
One thing about not getting paid, for doing a job no matter how small, people will get mad and rant about it.
If one or two members of a PTC or GPT side have experienced being cheated out of their pay, there’s probably a story about it in a forum board, a blog or a Facebook post about it.
Just one or two stories about any website should be cause enough for concern to legitimately make you question even considering being a member of that PTC or GPT site.
Again, where there’s smoke, there probably fire.
WHAT ARE THE STORIES SURROUNDING THEM?
What are the stories surrounding the site? If horror stories exist, then your antennas should be up and back out of the registration process.
What happens on the internet stays on the internet forever, so seek out these horror stories if any and they will give you an idea.
Again, as with anything in real life, so is the same on the internet and online, there are risks.
Easy earning endeavors with minimal skills needed and minimal focus needed are high-risk jobs, but it doesn’t mean that they cannot be an alternative source of income.
