This review is going to be on a website called DollarTracks.com. What is DollarTracks? Is it a scam? Or a legitimate opportunity for you to earn money online? Is there any hidden catch? Is it worth investing time in a program like this? These are some of the questions that we will be focusing on in this review.
Alright without further ado, let’s get things rolling…
Price: Free to join
What is DollarTracks all about?
DollarTracks is a Get-Paid-To(GPT) site where one can participate in and earn some extra income through completing some tasks or micro-tasks.
It seems that this is a worldwide opportunity so anyone from any part of the world can actually take part and earn some money. You don’t really need to pay any money to get started. It is free to join and all you need is an internet connection to start earning. You can either use a computer or even a smartphone to complete the tasks.
In their website itself, I couldn’t find any information on who owns or runs it. I did some research and managed to find out that the domain Dollartracks.com is registered under an organization called Mindset Media Group and a person named Joe A.
A Look Inside DollarTracks.com
To be honest, when I first stumbled across DollarTracks.com I immediately thought that this must be a scam. Because the homepage is poorly designed and it really gave me a bad impression. When I click on any other the links below it immediately brought me to the login page instead of that specific page.
However since sign up is free, I decided to give it a try.
This is how it looks after you login to DollarTracks. As you can see, there are over 35 different type of tasks for you to complete to earn some money. Some tasks earn you more points than others depending on the difficulty and duration.
Some of the tasks includes,
- Taking surveys
- Paid to click, view ads
- Auto surfing
- Watching videos
- Completing offers
- Downloading Apps
On the left-hand side, you can see a live chat feature. It is running in real time, so you can just pop in a chat with the other members or maybe even ask them a tip or two on some of the tasks.
On the right-hand side, it updates whenever someone cash’s out money or when they earn points from a certain task. This could be a good way for you to see which are the tasks others are frequently doing to earn themselves points and you can do them too.
Things I Liked about DollarTrack
(1) Low Cash Out
One of the good things about DollarTrack is that they have a very low cash out limit. You will only be required to earn $0.50 in order to cash out through Paypal or $1.00 to cash out through Amazon. This is definitely a plus point when compared with other sites who have very high cash out limit.
(2) Auto Surf feature
Again, I have not come across many sites that have an auto surf system in place. How this works is very simple. When you complete tasks, you will earn auto surf credits that you can use in the auto surf system on a later period. As a starter, you can see you don’t require any AS credits but also at the same time you will only receive $0.003 so it’s not really worth leaving it on. You must aim for 1000 AS credits and you will be able to earn $1.50 if you run the auto surf browser for 24 hours.
Most people feel disappointed because it only lasts 24 hours. Once the 24 hours is up, you will need to earn a new set of AS credits if you want to use this feature again.
Issues I have with DollarTrack
(1) Many Tasks Not Available to me
For e.g. what I notice is that many members are doing a task called HyprMX-Video to earn points. However, it shows that there are no videos now, try again later.
This is definitely frustrating because I have been trying this for the last couple of days and they kept on repeating the same thing although it still shows people are earning from this tasks like less than a minute ago. This can only mean two things. Either the activity update is not genuine(probably programmed to update it in such a way) or it’s simply not available in my country.
(2) Surveys are a BIG time waster
If you look at DollarTracks dashboard, there are actually many surveys to do. Unfortunately, I couldn’t do any of it. If you are really lucky you can qualify for a survey after trying many times provided you have the time. For me, I really get frustrated finding a survey to do because I spend some much time completing the pre-surveys and in the end, I always get this notification of “this survey doesn’t match”…
I’m sure majority of you are in the exact situation as me. They claim they pay up to 100 points per survey but the problem here is how could you make money if you don’t even qualify. You only end up wasting time completing the pre-surveys.
The Money is in the Referrals…
They key to making money fast with DollarTracks is to bring in referrals. You will get paid commissions on up to 2 levels when you refer someone to DollarTracks. In other words, for every person you refer directly through your link, you will earn 10% of their earnings. When your direct referrals start to bring in their on set of referrals, you will earn 5% of their earning too.
So my suggestion to you is not to rule of this. I know a lot of people tend to leave out the referrals part because they don’t really have much idea or experience on getting them.
There are many ways to get people to see your link. Sharing on Facebook groups, comments, blogs, forums, YouTube, or joining traffic exchange sites are a couple that can easily help you get a decent number of referrals. However, all these comes with time. Although, it looks simple, trust me it’s not. I’ve been there and done that before. It really consumes a lot of time.
Another thing you should take note of is that the amount of money you are going to earn really depends on how much work your referrals do. If your referrals didn’t complete many tasks, you are not going to earn much. Worst case is, your referral registers and then got bored of it and never came back. This will result in ZERO earning on your side.
So is DollarTracks.com a scam?
Nope, as far as I can see DollarTracks is definitely not a scam. Many members are getting paid without any issue although there is still a handful of them complaining that their accounts got suspended when they requested for withdrawal.
What you need to know is a site like this greatly depends on Advertisers funds to run. If there is nobody buying their services, there will be little to no tasks to complete hence, no money to be made.
All in all, I won’t say DollarTracks is for everyone. If you are someone who is happy to earn $10 or $20 per month, then this maybe be for you. But for people who are looking to get rich, or substitute this for their full-time job I’m sorry to say that this opportunity doesn’t even come close to providing you that.
As for myself, I am not going to waste time doing these tasks simply because I am not able to complete some of those high paying tasks and those paying ones really pay too little and take up quite a lot of time. I would rather use that time to do something more productive.
Final Verdict: Legit, But Not Recommended
Safe & Solid Way To Earn Money Online?
For those of you who are keen in generating good income online, I highly recommend that you Start Your Own Online Business. This is a really safe and solid opportunity because you don’t depend on anybody but yourself. You don’t have to worry about spending so much time completing the tasks and getting paid too little.
So… what do I mean by online business?
There are many ways of running your very own online business. Selling your own products, running an e-commerce store, Amazon FBA is a few I can list from the top of my head. But the one that I am most comfortable with and talking about now is called Affiliate Marketing.
Affiliate Marketing means promoting someone else’s products/services and earn commissions from it. There are countless of benefits for this approach which is the reason why I really love it.
Some of them include…
- You don’t need a huge capital to start
- Can be done from the comfort of your own home
- No need to physically get in contact with anyone. Everything is done through the internet.
- You don’t have to worry about what products to sell or storage space to put your products
It’s really not difficult to get started. All you need is an interest or passion. If you have one, you can build a business around it. I have been doing this for just over a year and have seen more than just great success with it. This opportunity has allowed me to quit my day job and run this entirely from home and the best part…? My income is almost 3 times of what I earned in the corporate world.
Though it is nice to hear… I have to tell you that this didn’t happen overnight. I have put in a great amount of effort to make this work. If you are expecting to make tons of money within a week or month, sorry, this isn’t something for you. You have to put in the effort and give yourself enough time to see success in this.
I know some of you might be thinking right now, how do I get started without any proper understanding or knowledge about Affiliate Marketing & starting an online business. Don’t worry, I have got you covered. I have been using this program called Wealthy Affiliate. It’s an online training platform that teaches you from scratch to building an affiliate marketing business.
