First, something to clarify:
In my opinion, upgrading is a very good idea IF you are going to work. If you
focus on completing your daily check list bonus every day, that alone will help
you make more money than what you make as a standard member.
This is true only if you have lots of offers everyday. A lot of the members want to work, but the problem is there aren't enough work to do...
I am not sure about Philippines, but you should take a look on your offer walls and see if there lots of offers that suit you
Quote:Fast way is to find a crowdflower's channel ( not big ones ) that has Entrance Exam & do it to get your level 1 badge in no time & after that come back here to do lot of tasks.
True, but I am not sure if he can still access the entrance exam once he signed up for Crowdflower tasks under Clixsense. Just keep in mind that you are not allowed to create more than 1 account on Clixsense or Crowdflower.
Now, just my 2 cents:
When people asked about upgrading, I will say don't upgrade until you have accumulated $17 in your account. Because if you can't earn $17, it means:
1. You are not determined enough to earn on Clixsense, and/or
2. There aren't enough offers/tasks/earning sources for you to make money.
In the past month, were you able to complete the daily checklist everyday/ most of the days?
If so, how much money were you able to get from the checklist bonus? Can you benefit from the additional 9% bonus when you upgrade to premium?
You see, by upgrading to premium you get at least 4 standard 1 cent ad everyday.
A simple calculation:
By being active EVERYDAY, you only need an additional $2.40 before you can start getting profit. If you can compensate the $2.40 from your additional 9% bonus, upgrading is actually free, isn't it?
The problem is, are you able to complete the checklist bonus everyday or get active referrals?
In my country, you won't be flooded with tons of offers and surveys everyday, so the only way to make a significant amount of money is by doing tasks.
What you should do right now: Find whatever sites that offer CrowdFlower entrance exam and sign up there. Use the same Crowdflower account. See if you can still access the entrance exam or not. If yes, then go get your level 1 ASAP. If not, then check everyday here for level 0 tasks and do them to get your level 1 as fast as possible.
I started here in the same month as you, but with determination nothing is impossible. And if you ask how I am able to get so many tasks, it is because I have worked on other channel for a long time before coming to Clixsense. So I already know what to do when I got here.
Sorry for my bad English and hope this helps.
