The Checks From Paid To Surf companies
What makes the Paid To Surf concept possible?
A valuable asset which you and you alone control is your time and attention. Companies that produce goods and services need consumers like you and me to use their products and services. They spend billions of dollars on advertisements to attract some of our time and attention. Paid To Surf provides us a method to receive direct cash benefit for giving our time and attention.
You already receive indirect benefits from advertising dollars every day. It is advertising dollars that pay to produce and broadcast TV shows. You receive these programs whether entertainment, news, or sporting events for free. Actually your time and attention to the commericials is the price you pay for these television shows. This is also true of magazines and newspapers where the price you pay for these items is significantly lower because advertising dollars are used to pay most of the costs.
How does Paid To Surf work?
The Paid To Surf programs sell advertising space on the banner that will be on your computer monitor. They have a very low cost to deliver these ads to hundreds of thousands and even millions of members. The profits are then passed on to the members either by paying them a percentage of the ad revenue or a flat rate per hour for having the banners displayed.
For your part you are required to be connected to the internet to provide a way for the ads to be sent to you and for you to visit the advertisers you find interesting. Some programs require you to be actively surfing. With many you can get paid while you are working on your desktop. At this very moment I have two banners running so I am being paid to edit this webpage. I also have music playing from a Get Paid To Listen program. They are still in beta testing but will be paying me soon. You can literally get paid while you are writing email or even playing solitare.
How much will I earn?
First let me say do not be fooled into thinking these programs are a way to get rich quick. If that is what you want then this is not it. Sorry.
To answer the question though there are different approaches to take on these programs.
1. No effort at all approach. If you join one or two programs, refer no new members and just surf 30-50 hours per month you will make at least $20-$30 per month.
2. A little bit of spare time effort. If you join 4 or 5 programs and tell some friends and relatives about the Paid To Surf concept you will build a small downline which will grow as the people you refer in turn refer a few others and so on. You won't get rich but you will start getting checks that will get a bit larger as your downline grows. You could easily be making $100 or more per month with only minimal effort.
3. The every spare moment maximum effort approach. For this you need to join all the good programs If you actively pursue referrals using a website and many of the ideas from the "REFERRALS" page you can make thousands of dollars per month. I am personally making several thousand every month and that amount is growing every month. If you already have a website with a lot of traffic you are already have a running start. I didn't in fact I was clueless on making a webpage when I first got involved with Paid To Surf.
Isn't this just another pyramid scheme?
No it absolutely is not a pyramid scheme. Click here to see what the Federal Trade Commision's site has to say about pyramid schemes. Here is another FTC site called " Don't get burned by a pyramid scheme" that is worth a look. None of these programs require recruiting new members to make money. You will earn money even if you never refer another single member to the program. These programs simply pay you for allowing them to place an ad on your screen. Yes you will make more money if you do bring others into the program, but it is not a requirement.
Is this a scam?
Absolutely not. Members of these programs have already begun receiving checks. All the money comes from advertisers. You are being paid for you time and attention plus your efforts in getting others to become members too. Click on the program name to see scans of checks received by me and other program members.
How can they pay me thousands of dollars to view ads?
Here is how the math works. I will use AllAdvantage numbers for my example. Whenever a member surfs with their banner active for one hour it costs AllAdvantage eighty cents. Fifty cents to the member, ten cents to their referrer, and five cents each to the next four referrers upline.
When 1,000 members each surf for one hour it will cost AllAdvantage $800. AllAdvantage ads are 20 seconds in length so in one hour each member has seen 180 ads or a total of 180,000 views for the 1000 members. Internet advertising is usually priced in CPM or cost per thousand views. AllAdvantage's payment to members is $800. for 180 thousand views or $4.44 CPM. Since internet ads are normally priced from $3-$20 CPM you can see that these companies should have no problem paying us if they can sell enough ads.
Many programs pay a percentage of revenue so if they get lower ad rates they will pay less, but if ad rates increase they will be paying more.
Which program should I join?
Each program has slightly different characteristics. The program that fits me best may not be what works for you. My Programs page has the programs listed in a table. Best to Worst, and best for different types of users. The best part is they are all FREE so join as many as you like and if you decide a program is not right you can cancel at no obligation.
Every program has a complete FAQ section on their site.
