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

Malaysia
Mexico
Netherlands
New Zealand
Norway

South Africa
South Korea

*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

iRazoo is offering DOUBLE Points on the Adscend Offer Wall. This means 1.7 cents for Every 3 EngageMe.TV videos!

Earn DOUBLE Points starting NOW and running until Sunday, May 21 ending at 12:00PM EDT, at iRazoo, on the Adscend Offer Wall.

6 points = $0.01, so the EngageMe.TV videos will be worth 1.66 cents for every 3 watched. Forget Swagbucks at 1/2 cent for 6 videos!! (I’m mad again at SB right now…)

And to boot, iRazoo seems to have an unlimited supply of the hyprMX Videos today. You can earn up to 22 iRazoo Points. Today they are all crediting at 10 points, so that too is the equivalent of 1.6 cents, when SB is paying only 1 cent for the same. Check out all of their videos here.

In addition, iRazoo has easily meetable Daily Goals:

Daily Goals start at 12:00am each day (US Eastern Time). Monthly Goals start and end with each calendar month. Only points earned through partner networks count towards your daily goals.

They accept members from the USA, UK, and Canada. They also accept members from other countries, but your earnings will be more limited. 🙁

Points are earned through completing offers, like watching videos, completing surveys, doing searches, and playing games. Members can also earn points through daily promo codes released on their social media feeds, through the daily bonus for logging in, and from weekly newsletter promo code. 

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.

Videology on OfferToro – Find this new PASSIVE video watching on OfferWalls. YES. You really CAN earn while you sleep!!

I found a new and exciting promotion on OfferToro called “Videology.”

OfferToro is an “Offer Wall” feature that you will find at many of your favorite survey, GPT and PTC sites.

Now wait — don’t get TOO excited. At least not yet. It has darn good potential though.

At first, I noticed it about 3 or 4 weeks ago on EarnHoney. When I realized how easy it was, and how good it paid, I quickly scanned my other favorite sites at have so far found it at the following:

EarnHoney  – well, it WAS there, but then they did away with OfferToro.  🙁

Instagc  – Found under OfferToro

PrizeRebel  – Found under OfferToro

Swagbucks  – (Yes! I know!!) – I’ve not seen it for a while on SB, but when they have it it will of course be under the OfferToro ad wall.

iRazoo referal code MXPYLY –  Found under OfferToro

GrindaBuck  – Found under OfferToro

GrabPoints referal code DLB5BFC  – Found under OfferToro

ClixSense  – Found under OfferToro. This will also count towards completed offers so you can get full bonus credit from your Daily Checklist.

At first they said, and even ENCOURAGED, us to….. What…?? To let it run continuously even in your sleep? YES!! Yes, they did!

This is what it said:

VIDEOLOGY
 

Rewards after you watch 10 short videos. This offer can be completed multiple times a day, everyday!

Warning: You must keep the popup window on top and view-able on your screen.
“This offer will refresh automatically, As long as your screen is viewing the popup video, you can let this earn on auto-pilot even while you sleep!

Now they have taken out the part about letting it run in your sleep. Oh, and now you have to watch 15 videos instead of 10, and the timer runs for 45 seconds for each video instead of 25 seconds.

And when it says, “Sorry, no offers are available right now.”  REFRESH! Or, close it out and reopen it. Yes, sometimes, that all it takes to bring the magic back.  🙂

HOWEVER.

This offer does not run as smoothly as it did in the beginning. And the earnings have been lowered. And the timers have been lengthened. And now you have to do one of those pesky captchas at the beginning, and every time it crashes and you have to restart it. 

Oh, those first few days were glorious. I made a lot of money, and ran all the eligible sites I could find at once. And it didn’t crash, or get hung up on a bad video, or even tell me that inventory had run out. But in the GPT world, we know that nothing good lasts forever. Or for very long.

It’s my understanding they are working out “bugs,” and trying to find ways to prevent fraudulent activity. So, in the meanwhile, search for it every day under your favorite OfferToro walls. Sometimes it’s there, sometimes it’s not. If it is, see if it is working.

I’ve had a terrible time this past week, where it wants me to keep the mouse on the active window. I understand having a window in view, But I can watch videos while doing other things. Security guards do it all the time.

Experiment with different browsers. If I find a way to make it magically work smoothly, whilst they work on their new tweaks, I will share with you. And y’all do the same for me please.

Peace & Love,

Kim

 

 

Looking for passive paid videos? Try InboxDollars!

I’ve been a member of InboxDollars for a while now, and I have cashed out 4 times to the tune of about $120. It’s one of those sites I use, but not religiously. I’ve discovered recently a beautiful feature they have called InboxDollars T.V. If you are looking for videos that autoplay so you can earn nearly passively, this is the place to be. You can earn up to $2 per day with these. All you have to do is click on the button that comes up every now and again that asks you if you are still watching. If it tells you you are out of logo-tvvideos, it is probably just for that particular category. Click a different one and keep going.

Of course, InboxDollars has all the other features one would expect from the usual online rewards clubs that pays you cash for completing activities. Earn cash when you are credited for completing offers, taking surveys, playing games, watching videos and engaging in many more activities.

You can track your earnings and progress towards Gold Membership on your Current Earnings page. Gold members enjoy additional perks including faster payments, more sweepstakes entries, more loyalty rewards, and additional referral rewards. Once you cash out for the first time, your account will automatically be upgraded to gold. For non-Gold members, it takes around two weeks for payments to be processed. For gold members, payments are processed weekly.

Once your account reaches a balance of $30, you can request a check or a Visa Cash Card. Too bad they don’t offer PayPal, but I’m fine with that. Money is money.

Of course, do searches every day to earn Sweeps Entries, or cash amounts from 1 – 4 cents for every four searches. If you search every day, (which you WILL, because you follow My List each and every day!) you are credited an additional 10 cents every Sunday as a loyalty bonus.

If you regularly do the surveys and offers, you are opened up to even more earnings such as additional videos and paid emails.

They have an app in which you can watch videos as well. But you have to “x” out of each one, and so far I have only earned Sweeps entries. Sweeps are where you can enter to win cash prizes or gift cards.

winitlogoMembers can also find and enter WINIT codes. These are posted on their social media sites: Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. WinIt prizes vary by code such as sweepstakes entries, cash, or a contest entry.

All in all, this is a pretty cool site and worth signing up for to put in your daily routine.inbox

E-Poll Is A Survey Site Worth Checking Out

epoll 2
www.epollsurveys.com

E-Poll is a survey site asking your opinions on current celebrities and TV shows.

Membership is free. Your personal information is never shared with any third parties.

Sign up now and you’ll be entered into their $1,000 monthly drawing. Just fill out the signup form on their site. You will then be sent an account activation email. Follow the activation link and you will be taken to your first survey. Completing this survey is worth 100 points. Future survey invitations will be emailed to you at random times. Currently they only accept signups from people residing in the U.S. but they will be accepting international members in the near future.

When you become an E-Poll member, they will send you email invitations to take surveys. Earn points for every survey you take. Use your points like cash to fund your PayPal account or use your points to earn gift cards. Or, if you are in a giving mood, you may donate your points to charity. All of their rewards are sent electronically.

Point values vaepollry depending on the length and type of survey. For example, a video survey that has many questions might be worth 1000 points, while a basic survey might be worth 200 points.

E-Poll points never expire as long as you complete at least one survey every 12 months and your account is in good standing.

They do not offer points for referrals. Bummer. But I chose to share this survey site anyway, because I a have the gift of anticipating of the needs and wants of others. In other words, I’m thoughtful.

If you hold out for the $30 gift card or PayPal payout, you get the best value for your points. In this respect, each 100 points will be worth about 16 cents. So, for example, you get a really short survey worth 200 points, this is equivalent to $0.32. Likewise, a 1000-point survey is worth $1.60. I often get 1000 point surveys and believe me, they are quite painless and go pretty quickly. For someone that does not like doing surveys, this is one of the better sites in my opinion. I’ve been with them since 2010.
