Making money while you sleep – A “To Do” List for when you go ni-night

You want passive? I’ve GOT Passive! Stuff you can click on, set it and forget it, and then go ni-night. Or go out for the day, or just sit on your @$$ and stare into space.

I use the Vivaldi Browser for all of these passive activities. It seems to run smoother, and it prevents all of those annoying pop-ups that some of the videos have.
In the morning, or at lease once a day, I use the free version of cCleaner, and then restart my computer. Yes, you will have to log back into all of the sites, but it really cleans up your computer and the memory, so it is not bogged down from all the crap you’ve been running. Then, I open all of these passive gems again so they run for the day, while I work on other things, like my To Do List, eBay, mTurk, or just plop my butt on the couch and watch TV. (hours upon hours of Big Brother live feeds…)

Please note, that depending on your computers speed and memory, you may not be able to open everything I have here. I can because I have a super-duper-fast- desktop PC. Also an older laptop, and older desktop, an android phone and 4 Fire Kindles. The Kindles I got dirt cheap on eBay, because they have cracked screens. I did not care about the cosmetics, I just needed them so I could run PerkTV all day and night.They have already paid for themselves with Walmart gift cards. Of course, I place my FREE Walmart orders thru Swagbucks, so I earn SB back on the $$ I “spent” but not REALLY spent, because I earned the FREE Walmart gift cards! It’s a beautiful little circle. And then, my phone runs the Swagbucks apps if I’m not yakking on it.

True, all of these things listed below are not COMPLETELY passive, you do have to check on things here and there, to make sure they are still going, but it is VERY surprising how quickly these all together add up! Watch your earnings soar, even if you don’t want to sit in front of a computer clicking all day and night! You can easily make enough to pay for Christmas. All of it. Even the food and booze and stuff.

Important note! Some of these links will not work for everyone. Sometimes a site will disable certain video features for a while, especially if you are using multiple sites. This is usually because of the 3rd party verification service they are using, not the site itself. Basically, you will be temporarily blocked for a while. But changing your IP address usually will clear that up. Sometimes not. You can also just back off on some of the videos for a while. Just don’t change your IP too often, as it may flag your account. However, I have found that since I switched to the Vivaldi Brower, I’m having less issues with videos not being available to me. Could be a fluke, or… it could not be.

Pick ‘n choose from the easy stuff posted below, or try to do all of them. Scared money is no money, I say. But I am not responsible If a site bans you. I don’t think they would, since technically you are not using any scripts or bots — things like that — just running a ton of sh!t at once. If they do ban your account, dust yourself off and obtain a new IP address, and a new email. Oh…and a phone number if it requires it. Find out what pissed them off, and don’t do it ever again. 🙂 A new IP address seems to fix a lot of things, so always try that first. (Cough-cough, being put in “time-out” (twice!) from watching too many windows of EngageMe.TV.)

Remember — NO AD BLOCKS, or these beautifully passive links to FREE money and gift cards will not credit properly. Also, make sure you are logged in to the individual accounts.

Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes at ClixSense

When logging into ClixSense yesterday after my mini-vacation, I was greeted with the ClixSense News I’ve pasted below. They are doing away with the PTC (Paid To Click) part of their website. I’m disappointed, as this is the ONLY PTC site that I use currently. However, this is a straight-up legit site all around, so I will continue to hang with them. If you have not signed up with them yet, you can do so here.

There are still plenty of PTC ads to go around during the final days. And, as usual, I will update my Daily To Do List as appropriate. I love this site. And I am sure that will not change after the Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes.

Moving forward with change

1 Jul 2017 02:14 pm

Members, more than 10 years ago we came online strictly as a PTC. As all things go, the ClixSense business model has changed over the years and with the addition of Crowdflower tasks, offers and surveys our core business has shifted. No longer are we just a PTC, but instead ClixSense has grown to be one of the top performing survey networks in the world.

While our survey, task and offer business has grown significantly, the PTC side of our business has been on a downward slide for some time now and more so since the loss of Paypal back in February.

Being in the PTC industry has it’s positives and negatives. The positive side of things is that we can provide you with an easy way to earn a little money and for advertisers we can send a large amount of traffic to their websites for a very reasonable price. The negative side of things is a bit more extreme. This caused us to lose our Paypal account (or so they claim), it places us into a high risk category any time we apply for a merchant account or new payment processor. It gives companies a negative feeling about us because this industry is loaded with fraud. What I mean by that is companies who we’ve approached to partner with us refuse to do so because of our affiliation with PTC. And lastly, from a revenue standpoint, it’s not profitable at all.

With the negatives out weighing the positives, and after 10 years in the PTC business, we have decided to move forward without PTC. Beginning July 15th, 2017 PTC ads will be removed from ClixSense. Along with the removal of PTC we have also decided to remove ClixGrid and the premium upgrades, including the corresponding 8-level commission structure. As of today, July 1st we will stop selling upgrades, PTC advertising and ClixGrid. Those of you who have ad credits on your account may still use them until July 15th. Any member who has purchased an upgrade in the last 24 hours will be immediately refunded today. We are stopping the sales so any remaining ad credits or ClixGrid campaigns can expire.

With the removal of upgrades we will no longer have 2 membership types. Instead, all members will have the same policies and options available to them and this includes cashouts. We have decided that we will raise the minimum cashout for all members to $10.00. This is still very reasonable and lower than many other companies in this vertical.

So what does all this mean?
Well, a lot actually. Any member who had purchased an upgrade in the last year will receive a prorated refund for any unused portion of their upgrade. This refund will be credited back to your account balance on or shortly after July 15th. The amount of prorated refund will be credited at 4.5 cents per day remaining on your premium account.

We know with the removal of upgrades and the 8 tier affiliate program that this may have an impact on some members with a large downline. To compensate for this ClixSense will now pay an incredible 20% commission on all direct referral activities. We will offer a single level affiliate program only and this commission is the same for all members as we will no longer have 2 different membership types. This change makes all members equal so everyone will have the same earning potential. This means if you are a standard member now (not upgraded) this change has given you a 200% increase in affiliate commissions (from 5% to 20%). For those members who are premium this is a 100% increase from your current affiliate commissions (from 10% to 20%).

* Please note, the 20% affiliate commission may be adjusted at a later date. We will keep this at 20% for a short time and then we will review our numbers and adjust from there, if necessary. If we end up lowering the commission, it should not be reduced to lower than 15%, which is still more than a premium member was making.

This new higher commission will generate more money for you than what the 8 tier affiliate program did. The reason is more members will do surveys, tasks and offers than those that would purchase an upgrade. In some cases this change can boost a members earnings significantly.

The checklist bonus will now give a possible 10% bonus to all members and the requirement for clicking PTC ads & ClixGrid will be removed.

Daily Checklist Bonus 7.0%
Activity Extra Bonus 2.0%
ClixAddon Extra Bonus 1.0%
Maximum Possible Bonus 10.0%

We realize this may come as a surprise to you but this is a change that had to be done. ClixSense will continue to be the best it can be and move forward because of your support. We are always looking for new ways for you to earn money and will not stop trying to improve our service.

Along with all these changes you will also notice a brand new look for ClixSense. A new website layout with a responsive design (mobile friendly) that is very pleasing to look at and easy to use.

So to recap:
• PTC ads will be removed.
• ClixGrid will be removed
• Premium upgrades and the corresponding 8-level commission structure, removed
• Minimum cashout for all members is $10.00
• Affiliate commissions upped to 20% for all members
• Checklist bonus will now pay a maximum of 10% if all requirements met.

We appreciate your business and welcome your comments, questions or ideas.

Thank you
The ClixSense Team

Update to changes – July 2nd

2 Jul 2017 06:13 pm

Members, after hearing from many of you and your concerns for the new checklist bonus commission, we have listened to your concerns and have decided to adjust the checklist bonus to 16% for everyone, similar to what we have now for our premium accounts. (12% Regular Bonus + 2% Activity Bonus + 2% ClixAddon Bonus). In other words, everyone’s accounts will be equivalent to the current premium status and more.

The 20% affiliate commission will be unchanged.

Also, because July 15th falls on a weekend, we’d prefer to have the change on a weekday, so the changes will not be effective until Monday July 17th.

Affiliate signup commissions update

10 Jul 2017 02:53 pm

Members, as you are aware on July 17th we will move to our new business model and we wanted to give you an update on what the signup commissions will be. 

Here is an overview of our current affiliate signup commissions:

Premium members:
$2.00 commission on first $5.00 earned from their new affiliate.
$0.30 signup commission on new active affiliates in top tier countries.
$0.10 signup commission on new active affiliates in other countries.

Standard members:
$1.00 commission on first $10.00 earned from their new affiliates.
$0.15 signup commission on new active affiliates in top tier countries.
$0.05 signup commission on new active affiliates in other countries.

Effective July 17th ALL members will get the following signup commissions:

$2.00 commission on first $5.00 earned from their new affiliate.
$0.30 signup commission on new active affiliates in top tier countries.
$0.10 signup commission on new active affiliates in other countries.

Top Tier Countries:

Australia
Austria
Belgium
Brazil
Canada
Chile
China
Denmark

France
Germany
Greece
Hong Kong
Ireland
Israel
Italy
Japan
Malaysia
Mexico
Netherlands
New Zealand
Norway
Poland
Portugal
Saudi Arabia
Singapore
South Africa
South Korea
Spain
Sweden
Switzerland
Thailand
United Arab Emirates
United Kingdom
United States

*Due to some members who try to abuse our system and create multiple fake accounts or use PTSU we do not pay affiliate signup commissions instantly. Instead these commissions will be paid whenever certain conditions have been met but not earlier than 10 days after the signup date.

These conditions include, but are not limited to, performing at least 3 actions on 3 distinct (different) days. We cannot reveal more than this to avoid abuse. Simply put, if your referrals are active you will get the signup commission accordingly.

There were also some questions on whether the $5.00 bonus for every $50.00 earned in completed tasks was being removed. It is not being removed and will remain.

We will review these commissions each 90 days to see how effective they are and change them if needed but we do not expect any changes as this has worked for us in the past.

Thank you

uly 17th Update

17 Jul 2017 10:14 am
Members, we would like to give you an update on the progress of our changeover. As you can see we have already moved to the new site layout and removed PTC ads and ClixGrid. Many of you are still writing in asking where did the PTC ads go. If you happen to miss our announcement you can access it here:

www.clixsense.com/en/…ith_change

Also, not everything is updated and we’re still working on the site. If you find a bug or something that isn’t working right please submit a ticket and let us know.

Refunds: We are also getting a lot of questions on the status of your upgrade refunds. This will be done as soon as some other updates are taken care of. We’re hopeful we can get all refunds taken care of today, but if not it should be done in the next day or so. We promise that we will get everything done as quickly as possible.

Affiliate links/banners: We’ve had some questions about advertising campaigns on other sites that are targeted to the PTC or ClixGrid pages. We have now setup a redirect for you so if a campaign you have running is targeted to one of the pages we removed, it now redirect to our new homepage. 

We have all the new banners and splash pages updated. If you are using the html code we gave you to promote then you do not need to do anything to change your advertising banners as they will automatically be updated. If you have an old banner on your website we suggest you update it with a new one.

We appreciate your patience during our changeover and we will keep you updated on our progress or if anything changes.

Thank you

So, I know I will be spending quite a bit of time on iRazoo this weekend. This EngageMe.TV promo is too good to pass up!

P.S.  On a unrelated subject, please forgive me if I have not been as active on the site these days. I finally know now what the heck is wrong with me, and why I had to quit working at at “real job.” I have fibromyalgia. Some days I just feel lazy. Or I hurt. But I still do my best to keep up with the Video Playlists for MyPoints and Swagbucks, and my Daily To Do List. It’s just good to know that I have proof now to show my family that I am indeed “not crazy” or nothaving “one of her breakdowns.” It’s just me. My nerves are extra sensitive, and I am delicate, like a desert rose or a sneauflayke.

Hints, Tips, Tricks, Shortcuts, Hacks, Passive &/or Easy earnings for some of your favorite GPT sites!

jetskiWhatever this word is you like to use, below you will find an accelerated way of achieving your money-earning goal at some of the more common beer-money (or bill-paying money) sites. This will be updated periodically. Please add your own way of getting quick or easy rewards in the comments!

Updated:  October 5, 2016

 

Cash Crate:

  • Check under the “Videos & More” tab –> “SuperRewards.” Not every day, but several days a week you will find “SuperRewards Video.” Start this and let it play passively. Even though you will see a green “next” button, you do not need to to click it. The videos will auto-play and advance to the next. It says you can earn .15 cents, but I’ve earned much more. Keep refreshing until it runs out. Make sure you don’t have an ad-blocker on.
  • Of course, also do the green “Check In” button first on the home page, to get a quick 3 cents.

Any site that utilizes EngageMe.TV:  Passive videos! Just open and let play in a small window next to whatever else you are working on.  You will find it at these sites:

  • PrizeRebel:  Offer Walls –> Adscend  –  Pays .5 cents
  • Instagc:  –> AdWall  –  Pays .69 cents
  • Earnably:  Offer Walls –> AdWall  –  Pays .55 cents
  • EarnHoney:  Offers –> Adscend Media  –  Pays .75 cents
  • Grabpoints:  Complete offers –> Offer Walls –> AdWall –  Pays .5 cents (My referral code is DLB5BFC if you are so inclined)
  • PerkTV:  Under “Offers” from the home page. Pays 5 points. $ amount varies, depending on what you cash out for.
  • ClixSense:  Offers –> Adscend  –  Pays 1 cent + if you complete the Daily Checklist, you will earn an additional 7% for regular member or 16% as a Premium member!!

Any site that utilizes nCrave or Encrave videos:  More passive videos! Just look for the ones that you can auto-play, indicated by a swirling arrow in the bottom left of the thumbnail picture.  You will find it at these sites:

InboxDollars TV:

  • Not completely passive, but you can do this via desktop or their mobile app. I average about $1.50 a day. Every once in a while it asks you if you are still watching. As soon as you click “continue” it goes on earning. I’ve on a few occasions even earned over $2 in a day, if I stay on top of it. make sure your ad blocker is not on, or anything that can be perceived as an ad blocker.

I use a Chrome extension called “Better, Faster, Private Browsing.” It helps a lot!

  • Swagbucks doesn’t tell me I have an ad blocker installed, and the videos play better and quicker, without so much lag and drag.
  • Please note, EarnHoney videos will not work with this extension installed.

I use a Chrome extension called “SpecificTIME.”

  • This is awesome so you don’t forget things! Use this for ANY webpage you want to open periodically. For example, I use it to automatically open the Swagbucks Blog page once an hour to see if I have won the hourly 1000 SB. (No, I’ve not won yet.) And while I’m there, I do a search or two, to hopefully win some more SB.
  • Use your imagination on what you could use this extension for. But be careful! If you use it to open certain videos that you know will play automatically. <cough-cough> it could potentially be considered a bot. So proceed with caution.
  • I sometimes use this extension to remember to check AdBistro on EarnHoney. This only is available intermittently throughout the day. Once I see they are posted, and keep doing it until they run out.
  • Use this to remind you to do searches on any site that pays you. Such as Swagbucks, InboxDollars, SendEarnings, etc.

Swagbucks:

  • Check the “Discover All Offers” section a lot! But sort it by SB Min-Max. You will often find things that are quick and easy to do. Such as Delicious Food Instagram Pics. This is a very quick slide show that you can click-click-click right through, without waiting for the next page to load. Sometimes there are some quick videos.
  • Check out my Quick Playlists. There are no more than 4.5 minutes each. You can let them auto-play, or click on the next one once you see the check-mark to get through them faster. Run this in a small window next to whatever else you are working on. It will go pretty fast. If you find the last video is missing, hit Ctrl-0 to bring the screen to 100%.
  • Toolbar TV on the Swagbutton is now PASSIVE! This makes up for lots of things they have done in recent months to piss me off. And to think I was contemplating breaking up with Swagbucks…

QuickRewards:

  • You are missing out on some good video money if you aren’t taking advantage of their Daily Clicks. While this is not passive, it is MUCH better paying than many of the other GPT sites, paying between .5 cents to 2 cents per video — not a group of videos. You must wait for the video to show completed before going on to the next. So, what I do is I’ve installed Auto Refresh so I can go on about my business while I wait for it to credit. Some of their videos will work with the Better, Faster, Private Browsing extension installed (such as Refugee and Cadaliac) and others won’t (such as Buzzworthy 1 cent videos).

EarnHoney: 

  • Just join the site! You are missing out on at least $5 a day if you don’t by just playing PASSIVE VIDEOS!
  • The trick is, getting it to work correctly. Make sure you have no ad blockers, or anything that can be perceived as an ad blocker. Try several different browsers until you find one that works. On my desktop it only works in the Edge browser, and on my laptop it only works in Chrome. Again…no ad blockers. And it will NOT work with the Better, Faster, Private Browsing extension enabled!
  • Check for AdBistro throughout the day. Keep refreshing until they are all gone. This is an easy 1.5 HD for each one you do, back to back to back.
  • Check for the the surveys. EVERY one! It is not like other sites that will have you spend 15 minutes and then tell you you are not qualified. Then you will receive 1 HD just for trying, as long as you’ve not exhausted your compensation. Your compensations refill each day, or with each successful survey. Earn an additional 50% of the survey by watching 10 videos daily. You have to watch the videos before taking the surveys to receive the bonus.
  • Survey Badges: Earn badges which will qualify you for even more lucrative surveys. You will receive 5 HD$ immediately for each badge that you complete.
  • Every time you cash out, press the blue button that says “Post to Facebook.” Then you receive an additional 5%. I love, love, LOVE this site! Sign up here!

AutoSurf automatically rotate advertised websites in your web browser. Just open these in a small window and let it run all day. You get paid very small amounts for letting it run. But you do nothing. It is completely passive. Sites that have AutoSurf:

Instagc:  They have passive auto-play videos. Run these every day, all day! Refresh and do again when they run out.

PerkTV:  Passive auto play videos you can run simultaneously on up to 5 devices! Desktop, mobile or tablet (including Kindle)!

mTurk:  To earn a great deal of money at mTurk, you are going to want to install some scripts. Search the internet for tons of tips and forums for Amazon Mechanical Turk. However, I will tell you what I use. Since I use Chrome, I’ve installed TamperMonkey. Once that was installed I found a lot of scripts at GreasyFork. My most used ones are TurkMaster (this will auto-capture your favorite hits so you don’t have to search for them) and Que Order Fix (puts your hits in the order they will expire). I will let you do your own research, but my earnings more than doubled once I installed these scripts.

Qmee:

  • Search and shop online as usual with Google, Amazon, Yahoo, Bing, eBay and your other favorite sites. You don’t need to do anything different – just sit back, relax, search and shop online, and get cash rewards. I always forget about it until I earn something. I wrote about it here.

Sign up for 1Q

  • It is just like it sounds. Answer 1 question by text and immediately have $0.25 deposited into your PayPal account! I just discovered this recently and I love it so far!! No spam from them!

Apps: These are MEANT to be passive. And they are somewhat passive when they aren’t being a PITA.

  • MyPoints has an app called MyPoints TV. If it doesn’t act buggy or freeze, this is good for another 10 – 15 somewhat passive points.
  • Swagbucks apps. Read all about them at this earlier post, “If You Aren’t Taking Advantage Of All 7 Apps That Will Earn You 60+ Swagbucks Per Day – You Are Really Missing Out! Or, ARE You?”
  • Inboxdollars use this to watch the TV videos. Not completely passive. It asks you every now and then if your are “still watching.”    Forget it. No longer working.  🙁
  • Earnhoney app. This is still in beta testing, so they ask that you be patient. I have earned from it, but yes, it can be a bit buggy at times.maxine

More tips and passive earnings will be added as I discover them. I know I am missing lots of things, but I am only one person and there are only so many hours I can zone out in front of the computer in a day. Post your favorite tips in the comments below!  🙂

  • If you found this page to be helpful, please consider making a small donation to MomsOffice, so I can spend more time researching ways to boost our earnings, and do less of my own click-click-clicking!  🙂 Thanks! My coffee cup runneth over!
