    I am really sorry that I did not believe you dear BHW members but these PTC sites like Neobux or Probux are such a waste of time ! If you have a good way to earn Direct Referrals pretty fast then maybe it could be rentable but when you are going to pay money to rent some I can tell you one thing its such a waste of money and time.

    You have to imagine they let you pay to rent refs and again pay when they expire after 30 days haha its ridiculous well good job to the admins they really deserve the money for being so clever.

    The people earning pennies on such sites (who have already demonstrated they willing to work for that little) might be the primary population to approach about doing micro jobs and low-paying gigs for you like writing for $1.50 an article, blog comments, etc. Just a thought.

    I mean everyone needs to start and experiment somewhere. My first step into IM was PTC. I tried CPA and I realized I just cant do these kind of things because I am good hearted man and surveys literally is trolling people. I know the world is full of scammers and I dont really like to be one. I prefer to work hard and sell amazon articles or such things you know.

    I started out with PTC when I first started IM, I made a decent amount with direct referrals. If you're good at getting active referrals then it can make you a nice lump of change every month :)

    PTC was my gateway into the IM world.

    I still work on PTC, but I don't waste time on that. I just automate them, I never invest anything. So no loss, gain only. Maybe it is a very less money but still every penny counts for people like me.

    Personally, my gateway was GPT sites (Prizerebel, points2shop, etc.). I started by doing offers, but then got lazy and decided to just make websites and get referrals. I used free websites of course and used Youtube and a few free blogs for backlinks. I was like, 11 or 12 at the time and had no idea how to do SEO (still don't), but I made a hefty $400 in the two years I've spent on the site. Spent that money on games and shit like the little prick I was.

    Because of that, I'm now leaning towards actual IM. Everyone needs somewhere to start with IM, right?

    PTC IS waste of time! You will earn more with adsense. Buy PTC traffic and ressel it (fiverr for free start). Before PTC I start on traffic exchangers 9 years ago lol. Your own PTC site is again waste of time and money. If this is your hobbie - stay with, but don't expect to replace your job with clicking on ads.

    Once I had a system setup that made me money automatically I started looking for other methods. I found BHW this way and now I'm in PPD/CPA. It's helping me learn other areas of IM as well, which I plan on getting into.

    I remember using Prizerebel when I was 15 years old. I got so much adware on my virtual machine from those surveys and programs! I used to use scripts and programs like GreaseMonkey and Roboform to do surveys faster for my measly $10 every 4 hours. Good times.
