I'm going to have to disagree with you about that iCasey, in which you said it is harder today than four years ago when I joined. I can't agree with that at all.
As you can see in the image, I have only 33 premium directs and less than 80 actives. Most of those did not arrive 4 years ago.
You might be surprised how many people are not aware of ClixSense. Keep in mind, people for the first time, every day, begin their search for making free money online. Same goes with advertising.
Just days ago, I was at a facebook small group. I told them about ClixSense and one signed up and upgraded. That lady then posted her link and she got one or two sign ups that joined and upgraded. Those two then posted their link and they got sign ups and upgrades. Within just days, my total upgraded members went from under 1,000 to over 1,000 and of course, my total active number of members went up. Thus far, I have probably added about 15 to 20 referrals to my organization simply by relaying my link on a very small facebook group in which one signed up.
That is the big point I am making. If you want to make excellent profits here at ClixSense, you can. You have to take the necessary steps to do so. At less than $15 per year, it is worth it. ClixSense gives every newly upgraded member, 100 ads to click. As the above member posted, when, after upgrading made the upgrade back in just over a month with no referrals at all.
To me, it's almost unbelievable that everyone does not upgrade. All you need do is the math, upgrade, view the ads and even with 0 refs you are going to make profits.
I won't say the name but there is a guy that owns several of the 'bux' (PTC) programs and is on the list in ClixSense as top sponsor of all time. Well, his bux sites...one has been online one year...that is the longest. He has thousands of directly sponsored active members. Ok what does this tell you? It tells you that still a whole lot of people either do not know ClixSense exists or do not understand how it works....otherwise, there is no way he would have that many directly sponsored in a relatively short period of time.
So, they are out there, lots and lots of people wanting advertising and lots and lots of people that want to earn money. You just got to keep on keeping on and go out there and get them.
