This review is going on to be on a website called Paid2YouTube.com. What is Paid2YouTube? Is it a scam? Or a legitimate opportunity for you to earn money online? Is it really worth spending time on 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 Paid2YouTube all about?
Paid2YouTube is a site that rewards you in terms of cash for viewing YouTube videos, commenting, subscribing and giving a thumbs up rating. This is a fairly old website that has been around since 1st of July 2009. Strangely I didn’t come across this website until recently when I saw quite a number of people actually promoting this on social media.
One of the good things about Paid2YouTube is that it is free to join. You will be able to earn money without spending a dime here.
How Exactly Will You Make Money?
(1) Surf Videos
Basically, there are 2 categories of videos that you will be able to view. One will pay you $0.005 per video and the other will pay you $0.001 per video. You will be required to watch a video for 20 to 30 seconds before you are credited with the money in your account.
There are only a limited number of videos you can view per day. In some days, you won’t have any videos to watch at all too.
(2) Giving Comments
Comment section pays out well compared to watching videos. You can earn $0.10 for every comment you give. Unfortunately, this opportunity is very hard to come by. I have signed up with these guys for over a month and till now I didn’t get a single chance to earn some money giving comments. I’m quite disappointed!
Think about it. If you can give 5 comments every day, that’s $0.50. In a week it adds up to $3.50. That’s some quick money to make by simply giving out a sentence-long comment. Who doesn’t want?
Out of all the tasks, I would say that the subscribe section is the easiest way to earn money at the same time it pays out the most. You will earn $0.15 for simply clicking the subscribe button. How easy it that? But again, the problem is that this opportunity is very limited.
In the past month, I only got 1 YouTube channel to subscribe too. It seems advertisers are more interested in the view count than having more comments and high subscribers.
(4) Thumbs Up Rating
All you have to do is click the like button on the page and you will earn $0.01.
As you can see for yourself, there are no rating opportunities available!
(5) Bring In Referrals
If you want to earn some decent money, you should never rule out this option of recruiting referrals. Basically, you will earn a portion of their money when they complete a task. You will get paid $0.001 for each video your referrals view, $0.05 for each comment your referrals leave, $0.005 for each rating your referrals leave, and $0.05 for each subscription your referrals make.
Purchase/Rent Referrals? BIG NO!
If you enter Paid2YouTube website, you will see in the right-hand corner some stats.
Basically, it says that you can earn $79.75 a year if you have 35 referrals with you. Most people struggle to bring in referrals so they are kinda helping you with that by either selling/renting referrals to you.
Renting referrals(30 days)
- 5 referrals – $3.27
- 35 referrals – $14.11
- 100 referrals – $35.31
Buying Referrals(Life Time)
- 5 referrals – $8.76
- 35 referrals – $52.58
- 100 referrals – $125.22
- 500 referrals – $501.10
As you can see for yourself, renting/buying referrals are not cheap at all. It’s really not worth the money. Basically, these referrals are people who join Paid2YouTube without a referrer.
You will have to spend some money upfront to get these referrals. Honestly, I don’t mind if I purchase referrals and I can get back some income out of it. But the problem is, you have no control over these referrals.
You can purchase or rent them, and they might not even be active at all. If they don’t do anything, you don’t make any money through them, hence, you lose money instead of making.
The founder of the website is the real winner because he/she earns money from you even though the referrals do not do anything. There is also a no refund policy so once you purchased them you can’t go back on it.
Is it Worth the Time?
If you ask me, I would say that Paid2YouTube is definitely a big waste of time. The reason is simply because most of the high paying opportunities are hardly available to us. The only ones are viewing the videos but they are simply just not good enough because they pay out too little and there are only a limited number of videos you can view a day.
The minimum cash out for Paid2YouTube.com is $10. If one day, you $0.04 through simply watching the videos, it is going to take 250 days to reach the minimum cash of just $10. That’s like 3/4 of year to make $10. Wow… so much for being efficient!
It’s simply not good enough even though it is a free opportunity. I’m sure there are much better opportunities out there that are really worth your time.
So is Paid2YouTube.com a scam?
Nothing can be worst than spending months trying to reach the minimum cash out limit only to find out that they didn’t bother to pay you. At the moment, surfing through Paid2YouTube I am not very confident that they are still paying.
Looking at their payment proof actually made me more worried. You can see that there is a big gap between 2015 and March 2017. I wonder what happened during this period? Wasn’t the site around? Didn’t anyone get paid for so long?
So many questions running through my mind… there is no definite answer. I looked through some other sites and forums and saw mixed opinions. Some said they were getting paid while another handful of members were complaining that it is a scam because they didn’t get paid a dime.
Some even mentioned that when they were nearing the minimum withdrawal limit, their account got banned for no reason. I have been involved with many similar programs in the past and I have faced similar experiences myself so I’m sure these members aren’t lying.
In conclusion, I wouldn’t recommend this website to anyone simply because there is little money to be made here and the chances of not getting paid after earning the funds are quite high. The only person that is really making the cut is the owner of the website. He earns revenue from all directions. Through displaying ads, buying/ renting of referrals, selling services to advertisers, getting people to become a reseller and etc.
All in all this opportunity isn’t going to make you rich or give you a breakthrough in life. It’s more of trying to earn some money during your spare time.
There’s something more valuable than money, and that’s time. Once it’s gone, you will never get that back. Money can still be earned any time. So make use of your time wisely and do something more productive!
Final Verdict: Scam, 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 tasks and getting paid too little or not worst, not getting paid at all.
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.
