Clixsense Review – Is It A Scam?


Clixsense review…is it a scam or can you really get paid every 30 seconds for viewing websites? To get a true idea of how this type of website works it is best to sign up and see how it works.

The sign-up page is thankfully very easy to follow, simply enter all your details and what I do like is you get to select how you want to be paid. With other sites this isn’t always an option, but with Clixsense you have the following to choose from:

  • Paypal
  • AlertPay
  • Liberty Reserve
  • Check

You will receive an email with a link that you MUST click on to validate your email address, which takes all of a few seconds.

Then I do suggest that you download and install the Toolbar as you will be able to see what ads are available without having to constantly log in and out of the website itself.

First Impressions…

Your Account page is very detailed and provides a lot of information which for the moment doesn’t really apply but it is worth the effort in having a look around.

In Profile and Settings you can add an avatar/picture of yourself, and I always recommend doing this no matter what type of site it is because it means you are a real person and are sincere in what you are doing.

Having the plain grey faceless man for me isn’t someone that you can really trust or build a working relationship with. This is especially important on Forums when you are trying to build an online business.

Earning Potential

I thought I would take a bit of time to discuss this because this is why you sign up to these sites in the first place.

One thing to note though, you are not going to get rich overnight with Clixsense.  Maybe make a few dollars here and there but it all depends on how active you are and what you select to do.

On the Clixsense website it clearly states that you can “earn up to $0.02 per click and up to $0.08 per referral click” , however you can earn more than that by taking on tasks but you will have to do a lot more for it which is only natural.

This can be achieved by answering questions about a website, service or even a sitcom, also you can earn more by rating products/services but be aware that none of these tasks should be taken lightly. They will require some effort and honest opinions from yourself so don’t rush this otherwise you won’t earn anything for them.

The payments as of writing this for such tasks range from $0.06 to $0.13.

The only way to further increase your earning potential is to become a Premium Member which costs $17 per year or $30 for 2 years.

For this you will get the following:

  • Signup Commissions
  • Higher Downline Click Commissions
  • More Chances to Win In Clixgrid
  • More Ads Available
  • 8 Tier Affiliate Program

Clicking On The Ads

Next I looked at the actual Ads page to see what you have to do and I must say the instructions are very clear and concise. It tells you exactly how much you will earn for your click on the websites that are displayed and more importantly, what you have to do.

For some reason I did have an error but that was my fault, it seems I should have clicked on the image and didn’t then had a bad gateway error come up. To fix this I just logged out and logged back in again.

What you do is click on the image that you are told to then the timer runs down and the earnings made are $0.01 for viewing that website, but some I noticed were as low as $0.005, these were referred to as microads.

Not a lot of money but as I said previously it will not make you rich overnight. With these type of sites you have to be consistent and do it everyday.

I clicked on 18 sites and earned $0.0650, that is it for me as it says to check back later.

Payout

The minimum amount required to reach before payment is made is $8 for a standard member and $6 for a premium member but you will be charged a fee which for me because I’m in the UK and using Paypal is 2% + $0.25 up to $20.

Clixsense Review – Is It A Scam? Conclusion

From joining this PTC site I have been most impressed with it’s layout and clear cut instructions. What I’m going to do is signup as a Premium Member then report back on a further update with my findings.

By doing this my income should increase slightly and hopefully it won’t take me too long to reach the minimum level of $6 then I can report on how long it took to receive the payout and what problems I experienced.

    I agree Vivette, and it’s the same principal with other similar programs…the greater your effort, the greater your income.

    As you say though, you will not make huge amounts overnight, but the potential is definitely there to earn some extra cash ;)

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Great review on Clixsense. I think the key to maximizing your earnings will be getting as many referrals as possible. I think the commission structure is 8 levels deep,so with consist effort you might make some money. It just won’t be overnight
