This review is going to be about a website called Cliquebook.net. What is Cliquebook? Is it a scam? Or a legitimate opportunity for you to make money online? Is it really worth investing time and money into a site like this? These are some of the questions that we will be focusing on in this short review.
Alright without further ado, let’s get things rolling…
Price: Free to join
What is Cliquebook all about?
Cliquebook is a fairly new Paid-to-Click (PTC) site that was only launched in November 2015. Currently, they have just over 35,000 members. I have to say, these numbers aren’t very promising. I have seen sites that have been around for a much lesser period of time but have over 100,000 members.
Maybe they didn’t publicize their site properly?
Not too sure about that…
Anyway, we get back to the review and see how this site fair when compared with other similar sites.
How Does it Exactly Work?
Those of you who have had experience with sites likes Clixsense or Neobux will know what to expect from this site. But for the benefit of the benefit of newcomers, I will do brief explanation here.
The main focus for PTC sites is the clicking and viewing of advertisements. Basically, business owners(advertisers) will pay Cliquebook to advertise their program/products. A small percentage of the money will be taken up by the website while the remaining will be evenly distributed as a token of appreciation for members who click on the ads.
How much money can you make from each click? Well, frankly speaking… not much at all. You are literally being paid pennies if you ask me. As a free member, most of the ads available to you are worth between $0.0001 to $0.001. Of course, you can choose to upgrade your account to increase the earning to $0.025 per click.
Even then, these high paying ads are limited in numbers. At most if you are lucky, you could get to click one or two per day.
Is this worth it?
In my opinion, it’s absolutely not!
These ads are worth so less that they don’t justify your time spent at all. You could be spending 20 to 30 minutes clicking on these ads and not making even $0.10 a day. I have been greatly involved in such sites when I first started my online venture so from experience I could tell you they aren’t worth it.
Furthermore, there is always risks of not getting paid when dealing with sites like this. You could have put in lots of hard work, but once you reached the cashout limit, they might not pay you as promised.
Others Ways to Make Money With Cliquebook?
Apart from clicking and viewing ads, you could also make money by participating in their surveys and referring people. However, I am not a big fan of theirs surveys and I will explain why…
If you look at the above image, it says it all. Whenever I click on their surveys, they end up telling me that there are no surveys available currently. This isn’t the first time… almost all the PTC sites I have taken part in gave me the exact response over and over again.
Personally, I feel that they don’t have any surveys in the first place. These are just there to make up the numbers and make their site look more promising.
I don’t really mind if they instantly tell me that they aren’t any surveys. They end up taking my personal details such as postal code, email address, name, age and etc… and then lastly tell me that there are no surveys. I have a strong hunch that these guys deliberately use this as an opportunity to gather one’s personal details and sell it to market research companies for big bucks.
If you really want to succeed in a PTC site, you can never rule out the option of referrals. Yes, referrals are the core of earning a decent income. Without them, you won’t really make much money. The reason I say this is because bringing in referrals allows you to earn money from their clicks and commissions when they upgrade. This can really add up if you can bring in hundreds or thousands of referrals.
One mistake that I notice people always make is relying too much on social media or forums to bring in referrals. Spamming links on those aren’t going to bring in consistent numbers of referrals. You will have to think outside the box and do other things like creating blogs, YouTube videos, taking part in traffic exchanges or promoting your link in other PTC sites.
I know some of you might be thinking, what about the rented referrals… Are they a good option?
If you ask me, rented referrals are a BIG NO for me. Firstly because they are not cheap. 100 referrals will cost you $90 and worst, these referrals aren’t even for a lifetime. After a certain period, you will need to repurchase more referrals.
Secondly, you have no control over your rented referrals. Just because you paid for them doesn’t give you any rights over them. Meaning, they can choose to join today and quit tomorrow or not do anything at all. At the end of the day, you are the only one losing out.
Personally, I feel that the rented referrals thingy is a money making opportunity for the owner. Just pushing unsponsored members to someone and he makes money out of it.
Is Cliquebook a Scam?
Well, at the moment I don’t think it is a scam. Members are saying they are getting paid without fail. However, I wouldn’t be too complacent about it knowing the fact that the admin is a co-owner of previous scam sites.
Although they have been rumors spreading around saying that the person has changed, I am not really going to buy into that. Once a scammer, always a scammer. So… it’s just a matter of time before this site goes upside down.
Not only Cliquebook, but most PTC sites don’t last very long. In the initial phase, these sites pay without fail. But after months, as lesser people start advertising, you can start to expect members complaining about late payments or not getting paid. It’s typical because sites like this rely heavily on advertisers.
No Advertisers = No Money…
Is Cliquebook for You?
The only reason I can see you joining Cliquebook is if you got something to advertise. Only then I think it will be worth it.
If you are not planning on doing that but instead, just want to join and clicks on the ads… I feel it is not really a good idea. I understand some of you might be thinking making some small extra cash is better than nothing. But honestly, it is going to take you weeks if not months just to reach the minimum cashout limit.
Solely relying on ads clicking isn’t going to help you in any way. You have to think of a strategy to get referrals. As mentioned earlier, they are going to be the core to your success.
There are much better alternatives out there that provide you more value for your time. Cliquebook just isn’t one of them.
My Final Thoughts!
Although Cliquebook is free to join and provides you an opportunity to make money. It isn’t something I will ever recommend simply because of the fact that there isn’t much money to be made here.
If you are looking for a breakthrough in your life for financial freedom or thinking about quitting your job, Cliquebook definitely isn’t the right place for you. It’s more for people who don’t mind earning some extra cash during their free time. That’s all…
Final Verdict: Legit, But Not Recommended
Safe & Solid Way To Make Money Online?
For those of you who are still 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 clicking ads and not making much money.
So… what do I mean by online business?
There are many ways of running your very own online business. Selling your own products or running an e-commerce store are a few I can list from the top of my head. But the one that I have personally tried and am talking about 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
- Definitely has more potential to make money compared to revenue sharing sites
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.
