tritdaddy : Do those Pay To Click Sites really work? I have been using NeoBux for like 5 days and all the money I have gotten is like $0.10 is there any point to doing it and is there any better sites that pay you more than this?

Etepsips : hat are the marketing and financial mechanics behind PTC sites?

Paid-to-click (PTC) sites make money from 2 main sources:

1) from content publishers who want the ads on their site to be clicked; and
2) from their own community of "clickers".


PTC systems make money from their customers (mainly content publishers) who pay them to click on their ads (actually their rhetoric is really subtle). In really, PTC sites crowdsource the process of clicking on ads to a vast community of real users worldwide, which makes it difficult for ad networks to detect any fraudulent pattern.

This way content publishers artificially increase their own income by benefiting from a close-to-perfection (supposedly pattern-less) but still fake stream of clicks on the ads they publish on their site from ad networks.

Content publishers basically enter advertising revenue sharing programs (e.g., Google AdSense) from ad networks that enroll customers in ad programs (e.g., Google AdWords). And greed makes them fool ad networks by leveraging PTC service offerings.

Indeed, based on simple maths, content publishers can make at least $10 for each $1 invested with PTC sites. Out of that one dollar, a minimum of 90% goes directly in the pocket of the PTC site owners, the remaining garbage is distributed to the crowded hierarchical pile of fooled get-rich-quick candidates.

PTC sites may pay their "sub-contractors" $0.005 per click, and double (i.e., $0.01 per click) if users are good at getting referrals (sub-sub-contractors).


To a lesser extent, PTC sites get some revenue from members of their community of clickers in different ways. So they may ask their members to pay:

a) to become a member (i.e., to be given the opportunity to click on ads);
b) to upgrade their membership (i.e., to benefit from a higher revenue share);
c) to advertise (i.e., to get more referrals hence commissions); and
d) to buy or rent referrals (i.e., to increase their own revenue).


Members being paid to click on ads is questionable from an ethical standpoint, so PTC sites charging publishers for the same purpose. But at least the money flows from the advertisers to the ad networks, then to content publishers, then to PTC sites, and finally to the community of clickers. The only ones losing in this food-chain are the initial payers—i.e., the advertisers—who do not really get what they pay for. In such a case, advertisers are scammed by content publishers.

It often happens that PTC sites have difficulty recruiting enough content publishers as customers and rely solely on fees they can collect form their member community. In such a case, community members are scammed by the PTC site they subscribe to. In some cases, PTC sites are just created with no intention to recruit publishers but merely to purposely abuse their community, financially.

To my best knowledge and belief.

grearoriure : I am starting to import soccer jerseys from china and selling them on ebay for a good price. They are really good quality and i was looking in maybe expanding the business in the future to maybe a all around sports store on ebay or a more specialized soccer store.

Is this a good market to get into? Cuz there are many people doing this already. Which idea is better spoting goods or just soccer?

Should i do this? Or stick to just jerseys?

Also what other products would i sell if i do go through with this ?

epheropet : Search the items you wish to sell on ebay. Check what is currently being sold and the prices to get an idea of the supply. Then look at completed listings to get an idea of the demand.

Likely the profit margins are going to be low unless you have a good supplier deal. Be sure you can shift the stock fast enough if there is alot of competition.

If you can offer specialized advice and knowledge on what you are selling that is a plus. People will buy from you even if it is the same product that another cheaper seller has in my experience.

Loasiarog : My cousins and I are planning a 7 day/6 night trip to DisneyWorld. There are 4 of us going... all between the ages of 18 and 22. Does anyone have any tips that would help us in planning this? Where are cool places to stay, eat, visit, etc? Also, any reccomendations on cutting costs so that we could enjoy our trip more? We would like to save as much money as possible! :)

GradGuirer : Don't eat there, don't buy souvenirs there. Go "off-season", so you can see more with less hassle. Rent a condo off the property, so you have a "home" where you can prepare your own meals [although that means you would also have to rent a car]. Oops - you're not old enough for that last option.

WDW is going to be expensive, there's no way around it.

line pods live : If you're into camping, bring your tents and stay at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. It's the least expensive way to stay on Disney property, and it's a fantastic campground. Bring in your own food (cheaper than shopping in Disney convenience stores) and plan on eating breakfast at your campsite. Pack a lunch to bring to the parks (yes, you can do that) and plan on eating only one meal inside the parks at a counter service restaurant. Resist the urge to buy too many souvenirs. I know the Goofy hat with ears will seem like a good idea at the time, but what do you do with it when you get home? Try to go during Disney's Value season (see the link below) when prices are lower and crowds lighter. If you go to one park per day, you can do without the Park Hopper option on your's nice to have, but significantly more expensive than just a basic pass.

Djoninsowdend : Where are you coming from? If you live close enough to drive, drive in and stay off property.
If your flying in stay at a value resort, (includes shuttle to and from the airport and to and from your hotel to the parks).
Stay at a value resort like Pop Century.
Eat quick service meals or outside the park, at your hotel (if it's quick service). Bring filling snacks.
Skip the Park Hopper option.
Skip the souvenirs.
