Are you trying to get online earnings through PTC, GPT or MLM programs, or via Microworking? In this case, you might be making a big mistake, and this text is written to explain why in 2016 you try to earn a mistake in this way in Serbia and the region.
What are the most common pitfalls in which most people are falling, especially from our region where the financial situation is uninhabitable when it learns about the possibility of earning money over the Internet? How to avoid the traps from the very beginning on the road to the Internet earnings and how from the start going in the right way, without unnecessary wandering (ie. how to educate yourself most effectively)? These issues will be dealt with this and some future texts on the blog.
By choosing to read this text, I think you can earn money online. There are various jobs that can be done over the Internet, and none of them is very difficult. To help you start your path as painlessly as possible, I will explain why it is a mistake to slow down the thought of a light and fast earnings and waste time in any of the methods of Internet earnings listed in the next paragraph, while in some future text I will write about what should be focus.
I will write about the four most common mistakes that I notice that beginners, who want to make the Internet profits over and over again, are:
- an attempt to earn via the PTC program - by clicking on ads
- earning a profit with GPT programs or filling out a survey
- an attempt to earn microworking - by working simple manual tasks for small money
- Trying to earn money through MLM (multi level marketing) programs
Sites like Microworkers or Amazon mTurk offer simple boring jobs that pay a few cents to a few dollars. The time needed to carry out these tasks starts from a few minutes up. Working on this kind of business can bring you cash money on the Internet, but for a lot of effort, however, you will hardly be able to learn something like this, which will help you in the future to do a better and better paid job. The only value of working on such sites is to consider why someone wants to pay a couple of cents for you to do a micro-business and how to earn it.
PTC (paid to click) or Internet Earnings by clicking on ads
Sites like Neobux are unfortunately among the most visited in low-standard countries. millions of people from such countries will click on advertisements to earn money because many are slow to believe in the story that they will easily get to the money by doing a lightweight job that does not require certain knowledge.
That's why this type of "earnings" is most often promoted as Internet earnings without investment. There is really no investment, but unfortunately, it's much harder to earn than it seems at first glance.
The essence of Neobux and similar sites is reduced to clicking on advertisements served through the service, for which advertisers paid the money in advance. Essentially, ads are served to people who are not interested in them at all. Service Clients like Neobux either want to increase statistics on their sites or are untrained and do not see the point investments in the same, or they just see in you the target group and someone they're making money from.
By the effort, money is earned, so the more you click, the more money you will get. The money you will "earn" very likely will not be enough to cover the price of the electricity that your computer spent while you click on the ads, let alone your invested time. An additional and probably more cost-effective way to earn money through these services is by using people below you. So, the part of the income that Neobux earned from a man beneath you (your referral) was handed over to you.
"The irony is that the most successful services of this type manage to survive because of the large database of users paid by the same users who are trying to increase their" customer base." The consequence of a tempting story (you click on ads and get paid) with the expansion of the customer base for couples (MLM principle) to some of the services have given them the chance to survive for years. "
In translation, these services persist because there is a relatively high probability that a few of your friends will be beneath you, because - "why not try, nothing costs me?" (Apart from time and effort that you can invest much more productively, for example in learning things that will really make you online money in a few months). And your friends will probably join several friends ... and all of the totals will probably not make enough money for the first mini-payment of a few dollars.
What's the problem with this kind of "earnings over the Internet"?
The main problem is that, instead of wasting time clicking on advertisements, you can spend your time on education and that in several months you have several times higher incomes. If you are among people who are able to bring a lot of references below you, then I think you are looking for your talent. A bit of education and work with more quality programs would surely bring you a lot more money. You do not have to work with the last link in the "food chain" where I refer to Neobux, you do not have to be an "internet physicist," but you can immediately jump a lot more, just need to invest time, figure out what to do and learn how to do it more effectively. This will give you skills that will be useful to you in the long run and certainly more cost-effective than clicking on ads for a few dollars a month, noting that there are plenty of PTC sites that do not pay at all, so you can stay without that.
GPT (get paid to) - Pay Per Consolidated Survey
I'm sure that you've come across many sites that promise you money, and all you have to do is give your honest opinion by filling out surveys. This works easily and profitable, so why not try it, wouldn’t you?
There are at least two problems in trying to earn money in this way.
- The first problem is that the majority of survey sites are pure fraud. It works so there are not enough survey polls to get a minimum salary.
- The second problem is that, even if you come across a legitimate site, it will almost certainly not have enough filling out interviews for people outside of the English-speaking field. They are primarily interested in people from Western Europe, America, Canada, Australia, etc. because there are advertisers for these areas.
If you overcome these problems, earning on the Internet through these sites will be minimal.
MLM - Network or Multi Level
Marketing Many MLM systems are presented as "revolutionary" programs with an unprecedented way to advertise with banners. Basically, this story is nonsense. First, it is necessary to put these banners somewhere (to sites) where the sponsors would be profitable (in a better case, that target group to which you are selling something is just actually YOU). Since these programs do not have sites that are interesting to sponsors, it's all just a story to cheat untrained.
The most common is the classic pyramid schemes where they can earn at the top (perhaps), while those who turn on will eventually lose their stake. The system depends on the constant connection of new members, and when it reaches the peak in the number of members, the whole system falls. See where the once-popular Banners Broker is now.
Some MLM systems are OK
Not every MLM is a deception program. MLM is legitimate if it has a business model behind itself, a tangible product or service it sells.
For example, no matter how much their product has been overestimated, GDI actually offers something to the end user and has something to sell. These are domains, hosting and various tools. True, you can get all this either cheaper or better (most commonly both), but the business model is legitimate.
Also, I think TrippleClicks (SFI) is one of the MLM programs based on a truly viable business model. However, it seems to me that they earn a good deal of money just for you, people who have joined to earn something but not to buy something and spend their money.
Of course, you will see what is offered through their online store, and often you will not be able to resist and buy something. The same will be done by a couple of friends who manage to join you underneath. And so, in a circle, you'll spend money instead of earning it-spending it right in that store.
It's harder than it does at first glance
To be clear, I think that through legitimate MLM systems you can make money, but that's not as easy as it looks at first. It is necessary to invest a lot of knowledge, effort, and work.
How do most people think they will recruit people in front of themselves through an MLM system? I will probably dedicate this to a new post, but in short - people behave like they have discovered hot water and as if their friends on the Facebook are barely waiting to see the link and themselves to join the MLM program. I noticed that many people want to recruit their referrals by spamming one and the same text on forums, Facebook and wherever they are online.
I'm a member of the Facebook group, where every ten minutes a person sets up the same article on how to make money through this or that program. Basically, they have basic bad sites on the free domain (and in a better case), and most commonly use the same marketing "tricks" - place one and the same (poorly-designed) message everywhere, so wherever it succeed.
And they will not go anywhere, people have already used of such ads. I'm talking about those ads that claim that Internet earnings are not a novelty and that you can make money online, that it's quite normal to make money online over the Internet today and that you're wrong about not starting and earning money by doing a light business from home not so ideal), without the presence of a boss, which you can start without any investment.
This is all mostly true, but what you will not manage to do is to earn by spamming the message. You have to offer people the value for them to join below you, and you can only offer value if you have the knowledge that you acquire.
I'm also talking about ads that require serious people for a serious job that can be provided, in order to make sure that if the ad creators, if they earn, earn a few tens of dollars a month.
In addition, it irritates me that most of these ads have a common image - they show pictures of a lot of money, good cars and big houses, which leads to the thought that without much effort you can make good money. At that, at least in my eyes, they automatically reduce their credibility. If it works too well to be true, it is very probably not true.
I’ve only seen one site in which a person does not claim to be a rich man, but only earns money on the Internet. However, this site is a copy of a successful foreign site on the same topic.
I do not claim that there are no people who successfully recruit people below themselves and thus earn, but most will just spend their time using the same channels of communication in the way they use it like others.
What I would like you to understand from this text is that earning over the Internet is quite possible. Invest a few months in education instead of running for easy money, and get yourself in the position of having more work than you have time (myself just made it).
I really think that it you need to have at least a minimum of three and in reality six to twelve months, enough to learn to find or develop a decent paid job over the Internet from which you could live. In this post, I gave an overview of jobs that can be done over the Internet (independently, from home).
In one of the following articles, I will describe how you can learn the most effective or cheapest one of the areas of your interest so that you can relatively easily receive regular monthly payments from the Internet work. As in this post, neither will I sell any product, nor will I try to persuade you to join me under a program below me.
