Neobux is just a waste of time

With Neobux you can make a lot of money!!!11

I’m sure you read this sentence in a lot of other blogs (because they want to have you as a direct referral). The truth is; it’s just a waste of time. The rented referals they have a very low daily activity, the average can’t pay back the rent price. The automatic recycling of rentals comes after 14 days but… what a “coincidence”, after 13 days they have a small activity, then “die” again after one day. Is that possible??? ALWAYS LIKE THAT????

I wrote on the official forum, asking for explanations. My post was deleted in under one minute, without any further explanations.

What to say? Enough, I withdrew all of them, and game over.

Luckily, they send the money immediately via PayPal, I got them within 15 seconds.

My PTM project is starting!

Did you remember the investment I was introduced to two months ago? Renting a place+machinery, to make some extra money?

I almost cancelled the deal last month when I went to see how the old man was working, and I saw that he was working at 500% his capacity, to produce months and months of “advance” work for my future Customers, attracted by a strong discount.

So, like an idiot, I would have found myself without ordersk for months, and maybe the customers would have asked “everything must go” discounts as he did!

In the end, however, we changed the economic terms, and here I am, ready for this new adventure!

The terms we agreed: ‚ā¨ 300 per month for renting this room + several hundred euros of “free” raw materials (ie: as a refund of damages). Regular lease agreement with a duration of 4 years.

The problems started right away: the old man told me “I gonna teach you all about manufacturing” – but he barely just knows how to turn on the machine! The workmanship was totally handled by that employee, who found another job! That’s why even though the processing is “very simple”, he decided to sell everything!

So I had to call that employee and give him 40 euros to have a quick crash course.

Second problem: the work is not “simple” as he stated – the 2-3 hour crash lesson from ex-employee was not enough – I wasted a lot of raw materials to do the experiments! Luckily they were “free”.

So the first month was like this:

Expenses:

  • 300 per rent
  • 40 “lesson”

I got very small orders:

  • 98 euro
  • 40 euro
  • 10 euro
  • 10 euro
  • 20 euro (This was hard! In order to find the right parameters I wasted like 100 euro of materials!!!)
  • 67,5 euro
  • 25 euro
  • 10 euro
  • 150 euro (but also this order was hard, I wasted a lot of stuff……)
  • 90 euro
  • 10 euro
  • 200 euro
  • 30 euro
  • 10 euro

Total for first month: 770,50 euro made, 340 euro spent = 430 euro profit

Not bad!

Neobux: the first 30 days of rented referrals

This is the table of my 12 rented referrals on Neobux.

I did not pay a single dollar from my pocket. For now it seems that it’s possible to earn something, but we are far from the earnings I was told. 14 cents a month do not seem enough to justify a daily login and daily clicks. I will give it another month to see if the click average will rise and then I will decide.

20 days with PTCs

It’s already been 20 days since my friend convinced me to try to make money with Paid-To-Click sites.

You will notice that for now I made just some pocket change. The real “gain” is done by renting referrals and earn exponentially on their activity. However, all sites penalize those who don’t log in every day, so you need to click 4-5 times on each site every day, otherwise what your rented referrals made, will not be credited. Also, I set myself a rule to never do an activity that pay less than one-thousandth of a dollar.

Here’s the report:

NeoBux

I did 472 clicks, being paid on average one-thousandth of a dollar per click. Luckily I won $ 1.25 with AdPrize. I then spent 60 cents for renting 3 referrals. Unfortunately, in three days they made only 4 clicks in total, making me earn only 2 cents (if you read those sites that say “with NeoBux you make millions,” I would have to earn at least ten times!). I hope they “wake up” in a few days…

ClixTen

I did 137 clicks, being paid an average of one-thousandth of a dollar and half per click.

FEClix

I did 201 clicks, being paid an average of two-thousandth of a dollar per click. The average is much higher than others because if you sign up via a special link, you have seven days of premium membership as a gift, gaining twice.

Bravolinks

This PTC pays ten times more than the others, but it’s restricted only to people living in Italy.

ScarletClix, GPTPlanet and Grandbux

I closed my accounts because I was paid less than half one-thousandth of a dollar per click. Waste of time. I also opened and closed on the same day an account with Grandbux: only 4 ads pay one-thousandth of a dollar and must leave the browser window active in front for a minute. Moreover referrals are rented in an expensive packs of 100. So it takes 4-5 years of clicks to make some moneyūüėāūüėāūüėāūüėā

My first week with PTCs

It has been already one week since I started to try to make money with Paid-To-Click websites. So, it’s time for some reports!

NeoBux:

Neobux Report

In 10 days I made 76 cents. But I won two 25 cents AdPrizes, so I actually made 26 cents, 2.6 cents daily.

ClixTen:

In 8 days I made 10 cents, so it’s 1,25 cents daily.

Then, some days ago I signed up to:

I didn’t fully test those sites, but I saw that¬†ScarletClicks¬†and¬†GPTPlanet¬†are paying less,¬†FEClix¬†looks awesome and¬†Bravolinks¬†pays a lot, but it’s restricted only to Italian IP addresses!

For now it’s early to draw conclusions, so I’ll write the results of my experiment next week.

Here’s the result of the bitcoin experiment

As I wrote yesterday, for experiment, I rented on eBay a 6 GH/s bitcoin miner for 24 hours, paying it 6 euro. Before renting it, I calculated that, in average, a 6 GH/s rig in 24 hours makes around 4 euro worth of bitcoins (quite obvious, if it was more profitable, the seller would have kept the gain for himself, right?), so I gave instruction to mine alternative cryptocurrencies, that I would have exchanged later for an higher profit.
I got:
  • 2.84346867 Freicoin
  • 33.96338019 Zetacoin
  • 0.72134190 Terracoin
That, if they were exchanged immediately at the moment which I bid on the eBay auction (18 hours before the actual start), they would have been worth a dozen of euro.
But, I got them much later: 18 hours for the auction to expire, 24 hours to mine them, other 18 hours waiting for my “shares” to be completed and finally 5 hours to see them credited on my¬†Cryptsy¬†account. Almost three days have passed, and now those coins are worth around 2 euro…

Well, at least now I can have fun on¬†Cryptsy¬†doing “virtual” forex:

And I can create orders to get rid of those cryptocurrencies that are useless to anyone except speculators.
Conclusion: this approach isn’t profitable, even if teached me a lot on this world. If I’m good in exchanging this coins, seeing the extreme volatility of those currencies, I could recover my losses (now: 4 euro)
Before doing this experiment and renting the 6 GH/s for 6 euro, I evalutated the situation carefully, I saw people on eBay that paid 15-20 euro for renting just 1 GH/s: I thought that they were professionals, that they would have got back the money, instead they were just crazy. Meh.

April ZuluTrade report

How my real ZuluTrade accounts performed in April?
Quite good, I’ll say.

Main account: AAAFx

Unfortunately¬†Tecnotrader¬†uglified the graph a lot, nullifying the efforts of the other providers. I’ll leave him enabled hoping in a recovery, then it will finish in the trash can,
Secondary account: FXDD
On this account I run only Forex Cruise Control, to see if I get different results compared to AAAFx (actually I opened it to see if I could reduce slippage with another losing provider)
If it continues like that, next month I will reach my profit goal, and I will withdraw everything. (With forex, until you withdraw money, it’s like you don’t have them)

Tertiary accunt: AvaFX

This unlucky account (crazily high slippage, constant requotes, cancelled orders), this month was lucky, that negative peak happened when I enabled a provider that almost killed the account some time ago… experience does not teach anything, apparently.

Second week of Megadroid and Topbot

Here we are at the second week of Megadroid and TopBot (for Megadroid actually is the third week, but during the first it didn’t do anything)

Megadroid as usually is less profitable than begging on a blind alley, making less than one euro in three weeks. (And this is ridiculous, if you consider that with my risk settings I can lose 25 euro with a stoploss). Where are the millions that they are promising on their website? And I was complaining that keeping SteadyWinner enabled wasn’t worth…
TopBot worked well, except for that unfortunate trade on EURUSD….
On ZuluTrade instead I am at the same level of january, what some providers make, others are losing, and so on…
