Upgrades - Places us in a high risk category because we are asking you to make a purchase in order to get more. It borders MLM if not crosses into this category. And, with upgrades comes the 8 tiers, again borders MLM. A purchase is made in order to generate a commission in the 8 levels. We do not want to be associated with this vertical. All members should be equal with their earning potential. Removing upgrades does this.
ClixGrid - It borders gambling and is basically like PTC except your not paid to view an ad. Our decision to remove this was not due to a revenue factor as we did not lose money on this.
PTC - The toughest decision I've had to make. Where to start...first you have to look at what PTC brings to the table. Fraud, malware, changed website redirects, high risk and the list goes on. Secondly, in order to stay competitive you have to keep prices low. To keep prices low this means you lose money on some campaigns, which we did. Someone made a comment that we were bleeding. I would not call it that as yes, we lost money on PTC, we could have easily kept on as we were with zero issues. The other thing we looked at was, where we want to be in the future? Can we get to the "next level" with our current business model? The answer was no. But, with that said, yes we could continue as we were and probably be successful and continue our growth. Our plans for moving forward are to look and act more like a legitimate company rather than a company that has services that can place you in a "scam" category.
If you stay as you are in business, you will fail. Change is not only expected, it's required. There is a great quote that says the only constant in life is change. We will change, we will move forward and we will bring you the best service and support possible. ClixSense is not only my company, but it's like my child (that doesn't talk back of course...lol). I care about my members, my company, it's reputation and the service we provide to you. I want you happy so you keep coming back and we will damn sure do our best to make sure that happens.
Thanks for reply Jim, sorry for delay in seeing it and responding. I will miss PTC on this site, I do 'work' on about 50 PTC/online earning sites. Some of them are coming good for me, and was thinking about running ads on CS in the future, then you announced that PTC was going.
The good thing about PTC sites are the extra stuff like offerwalls, PTSU and I like earning through videos. Really hoping more offerwalls are in the pipeline, but also ways we can promote links to other members and I think PTSU would be the solution... e.g. simple ones like 'post URL of website visited' to earn something like $0.001 or more committed ones like 'join site, be active 7 days' to earn $0.10' - this is unless you have something else planned, of course. Can't wait to see what 'new stuff' replaces PTC as I'm sure you've done your homework, and done something great for the site. Feel free to message me via chat if you want to give me a glimpse of the future
