Simplified Overview of Online Earning

Click Exchanges, click ratio, PTP, PTC, PTR, downlines, referral links…??

What does all this gibberish mean?

Earning a living online requires that your time spent working is profitable. The easiest way to sit in front of your computer and make money is getting Paid to Click (PTC). A Paid to Click program is a website portal that allows you to log in and view web pages. After you log in, each program has a designated spot (link) that will say ‘Paid to Click’, ‘PTC’, ‘Earn Now’ or something like that. When you click on this, a timer will pop up in either a new window or a new tab, as well as the website you are being payed to view. After the timer reaches zero, the user will have to click on either a number, square of color, or some other button that, when pressed, credits the user’s account and displays the next page. You can be paid anywhere from .001 cent per click to upwards of .025 cent per click.

PTR, or Paid to Read, is a very similar method for earning but with one extra step. Inside of an email will be a link. After reading the email (or scimming it) and finding the link, you click on it. It displays both a timer and a web page. Instead of having to click to verify you’ve visited a web site (like you do with PTC), the timer counts down to zero and you are credited. Again, the payments are small and can vary from .001 cents per click to upwards of 1 cent per click.

PTR and PTC sites make their money by selling ‘hits’ to people advertising their sites and giving you a small percentage of the sale for clicking on the advertiser’s website. The way that many of the web sites that run PTR or PTC programs promote themselves is by paying you to get others to visit their site. Both of these types of programs become more successful the more users and advertisers they have. To grow their membership base, they will pay you to advertise for them. To advertise their sites, you direct people to their website via a ‘referral link’ and every time a unique visitor uses your referral link to visit a web site you earn a credit. These credits are exchangable for cash. The advertising industry has a unit of measure known as CPM. CPM is the cost or payrate for 1,000 impressions. The programs considered by ‘the Remington Victor Way‘ will pay $.75 to $.99 CPM, meaning for every thousands clicks on your referral link you will earn 75 to 99 cents. Getting paid to promote other websites is known as Paid to Promote, or PTP.

How do you generate hits to your referral link? There are many options for driving traffic to the websites you want to promote. The free way is to register with one of the thousands of websites known as Click Exchanges. Click Exchanges are member driven programs that reward you by visiting websites not by paying you, but by having other members visit the website of your choosing (in this case, your referral link). Many Click Exchanges are well managed and reliable companies who have been on the web for5 years or longer. The key to finding good click exchanges lies in both the size of their membership base as well as the click ratio they offer.

Click ratios are the rate at which Click Exchanges will return traffic to your site. The best (free) click ratio is 1:1. This means for every Click Exchange members’ page that you visit, another member will visit yours. More common ratios are 2:1 and 5:4. A 2:1 ratio give your website 1 visit for every two sites you visit, while a 5:4 ratio means you have to visit 5 web sites to earn 4 visitors to your site. It’s rather simple and straightforward, but it’s an important concept to understand. The click ratio is a metric used when due diligence is performed to evaluate a program and it also indicates the effectiveness of your time spent online earning. How effective you are at earning online is directly related to the click ratio you are receiving from the click exchange programs you will join.

As discussed, the referral link you will be driving traffic to earns you money but it also helps you build a downline. The motivation for paying you to promote a website is so the website can grow its membership size. When people join a program or website as a direct result of you sending them to it — it is recorded. It is known in the link itself and by the program paying you to promote them. In addition to getting paid, you receive many other benefits through various programs for bringing them new members . Often times they will reward you with a percentage of any revenue generated by the new member, or at least share with you some of their earnings. The earnings may not be monetary but do have value. One such shared earning is sharing traffic or credit points. This means that while they are earning website hits to their own website, a small percentage of these traffic credits are awarded to you. When you log into the PTP websites there will be a section labeled ‘downline’ or ‘your downline’. It will take many weeks before you start to fill this downline and some programs will be easier than others. Also, downlines formed by promoting or referring others are found in PTC, PTR, and Click Exchange programs too. This concept of building a ‘downline’ is the foundation of ‘the Remington Victor Way‘. From ‘the Remington Victor Way‘ point of view, your downline will be anyone you teach this method to. As it grows, your earnings and and ability to generate more website hits grow. This becomes key to creating a system that maximizes your time spent earning online and will be discussed in great length as I document all the details of every component of ‘the Remington Victor way‘.

This is a very simplified overview of earning online and these terms and methods for generating online revenue are the primary focus of your online earnings during the first three months of your work. You should be familiar with these terms so you can read the reports for every opportunity as well as be able to teach others how to earn online.
