If you’ve been reading my blogs and read my Clixsense review you will know that I am not fond of pay to click sites. The fact is that it is a lot of effort for little reward right? That may be true but my findings have been interesting here.
I’ve got a few issues with pay to click websites. The biggest one being the amount of time spent to earn such a little bit of money and the other problem being that it is mindless work right.
So I bet you are wondering why on earth I spent some time on Clixsense during January and I will continue to do so for the next year to come! I want to find out how to make money with Clixsense how it works and is it really worth your time?
As you will have noticed I am not very nice when it comes to my ratings, click here to read why I love rating opportunities so badly.
Before I get into this I just want to explain what the purpose of this post is as opposed to the review I already wrote. You see I usually rate things according to whether I can make a full time income from it and whether it is a viable business opportunity.
This post is completely different. I have had some feedback that Clixsense can bring in a decent amount of money, most likely just pocket money true… but perhaps I haven’t given Clixsense enough credit.
How to Make Money with Clixsense
There are various ways to make money with Clixsense that I have already explained in my Clixsense review, but here is a quick run down:
This is quite simple. You click on ads and earn per ad you have viewed.
This has turned out to be the most profitable for me. I’ve earned up to $2 for surveys and they don’t really take very long to fill out.
This really varies so I can’t tell you what it would be. It can be playing an online game, signing up to a website, watching videos, downloading applications to your phone… anything really.
These also vary a lot, you get paid per task which are little mini jobs. The ones I have done are just verifying information on websites. The tasks are very quick to do but the pay is really low.
This is simply a daily competition where you can click on a grid and view websites, each website you view gives you a chance to win some cash. You can win up to $10.
Daily Checklist Bonus
This is an opportunity to earn a bonus from your daily activities. If you are a regular user and complete a certain amount of activities you will earn a little bonus.
And of course if you refer people you will earn commissions from their earnings and any purchases they make on Clixsense.
So why did I not take Clixsense seriously?
So here’s the thing. When I did my Clixsense review I spent a couple of days on the website messing around but I honestly never looked at it like a serious opportunity. Yes I admit it, I was biased and I didn’t see Clixsense in a favorable light.
I did notice that it was the best pay to click website I have come across and for this reason, and because so many people appear to love it I listed it under my pocket money opportunities on my website.
So at the beginning of January 2016 I decided to head back to Clixsense and give it more of a chance. This time not looking at it like a business opportunity, but like a serious pocket money opportunity.
Why would I use Clixsense regularly?
I asked myself what on earth would motivate me to be a regular user on Clixsense and to take it seriously? Why would I log on there every day and waste my time?
Well I need a holiday and so does my family. The problem is it seems every year there are doctors bills, school fees, car repairs… and we just never seem to make it anywhere. Does this sound familiar at all?
I’m sure it does, this is a problem most people have. So I want to take my husband, my 4 year old daughter and my 2 year old son away on holiday for at least a week.
Not anywhere fancy or far away, just a nice reasonable family holiday. I will use my earnings from Answered Insight too that I use regularly to add to whatever I earn from Clixsense.
At the beginning of January my Answered Insight’s earnings was R260 and it is now R280 at the end of January. I had no Clixsense earnings. Yes the earnings at Answered Insight are not much at all but it takes such a little time and I hardly have to do anything so I do enjoy that. Every now and then it is a nice little amount of money to spoil my kids with something.
I thought if I can earn R10 000 (appr $625) extra between now and January 2017 we can have a nice comfortable one week holiday.
Clixsense How Does it Work? So how did January go with Clixsense?
Well I’ve got to admit here that it went quite well. The change of mindset certainly changed how I worked Clixsense and how I perceived this opportunity so it really was a time of personal growth for me too!
Ok so here’s what happened. I decided yes I have a goal to make R10 000 (appr $625) in a year with Clixsense, but I don’t want to make it an obsession to make a point that I can do it. I have no doubt I would achieve it, but I would make it the mission of my life which won’t be good at all. I don’t want to spend every waking hour trying to make money on Clixsense, or even a lot of time.
This was a good decision and has helped me with this experiment. So my allocated time for Clixsense is first thing in the morning while I have my coffee before I start officially working for the day.
So every morning in January I spent about 10 just messing around on Clixsense. I quickly got into a routine of first clicking on all the ads, then checking for surveys, then completing Clixgrid. If I have spent less than 10 minutes doing this I then have a quick look to see what offers and tasks are available.
I also downloaded the ClixAddon button so any time a new advert or survey becomes available I get notified immediately. Anyone that has done surveys knows you have to get in there quickly or it won’t be available.
So the first few days I only had adverts to view, which was pretty much the same experience I had previously. But after about a week I started getting a few surveys too. I finally started seeing my earnings go up a bit.
So now it is the 2nd February and I have $13.40 in my Clixsense account (plus $3.97 pending that will clear soon). It doesn’t sound like much, but when I convert it into Rands it is R214.48 and when I add that to the money sitting in my Answered Insight account (R280) I am sitting with R494.48. Only R 9 505.52 to go now…
Suddenly it seems like this is not such a waste of time after all. My little pocket money earnings might just pay for a lovely family holiday! I look forward to sharing more with you.
Oh and on that note I don’t promote things I don’t really believe in and that don’t work which is why I never bothered being an affiliate with Clixsense… I have now added affiliate links into my posts because I can see now that this could be a nice pocket money opportunity!
So feel free to sign up under me and help us go on holiday! If you do sign up I ask you to please come back to this post soon and let us all know how it worked for you too!
