I joined CS two or three weeks after it launched in Feb of 2007. I have been an upgraded member since I joined.
There have been months, years, that I did not click/view the ads on a regular basis.
So take that into strong consideration when doing the math.
As of this moment, for my own ad views:
My PTC Clicks today 22 total 39,127 earned $330.4640
I can say that, almost exactly 6 years to date, I have made over $330 viewing ads at CS.
That is nothing else, simply clicking and viewing ads myself.
I can honestly say, looking back, that amount of earnings could have easily been doubled since there was
a lot of times I did not view ads.
Rounding off to $600, I'd have to say that anyone serious about making money at CS, as an upgraded member,
can make about $100 a year, viewing ads, even IF they did absolutely nothing else, no referrals, nada but
viewing ads! EVEN IF we were to take that way down and look only at what I have earned over the course of
6 years viewing ads, we see that averages out to way over $50 per year.
Bottomline, if you want to make money at clixsense and make very good profit, you really should upgrade.
Upgrading does not mean doing nothing. It means upgrading every year, clicking the ads every day as your
time allows, you will in fact make good profits even with 0 referrals.
