If you haven’t heard about Paid Autosurf programs yet, you’re about to hear of a great way to earn extra money using your computer and a web browser. If you have heard about them and thought these programs can’t be real, then you’re in for an eye opener as well.
Paid Autosurf programs are offered by advertising companies that pay you to surf their members websites and get paid for doing so. These companies have advertisers that purchase advertising packages that allow their websites and promotions to be shown to members who surf their exchange. Their hope is that as you surf, you will be interested in their offers and make a purchase or at least capture that all so coveted e-mail address of yours so they can try to up-sell you later.
The Paid Autosurfs are quite simple. They accept both free and paid members for their service. Free members are able to generate free credits to have their websites shown to other members to help increase their sales. Paid memberships also get their advertisements shown to members but they also earn money for each day they surf in the exchange. Paid members get paid for the days they surf. If they don’t surf, they don’t get paid.
Paid members are charged membership fees for Upgrades they purchase and earn a certain percentage daily for the days they surf. When these Upgrades expire, members get paid. Upgrade durations vary between programs. Some may have 4 day Upgrade sessions where others may have 365 day (1 year) Upgrade packages. The percentages paid can range anywhere from 1% to 12% each day and more.
If you understand the rules of these Paid Autosurf exchanges, the members do not gross the high percentage gains advertised, since initial membership fees are not returned. For example, if a Paid Autosurf program were to pay you 12% each day, after deducting the initial membership fee from your 12% earnings, your net profit would be approximately 3.66% per day. This is still a fantastic gain on your money, but it’s a far cry from 12%. Isn’t marketing a wonderful thing?
So many people wonder how these Paid Autosurf companies can afford to pay their members such high daily gains. There are many ways these companies make money, from paid advertisers, to Forex (foreign exchange) trading to playing the odds. The facts are that many people who join these programs don’t understand how to use them. Many of these people lose money. As I mentioned before, the membership fees you pay to earn your daily gains on are not returned. You earn money from your membership fee amount. So if you invested and never surfed a website, then guess what? You’re out . If you only surfed half of the days, you lost money. If you don’t have the time to commit to these programs, don’t join them. You need to have daily access to a computer with a web browser to earn money with these programs. If you don’t, then these programs are not for you.
Programs like these are always accused of being some type of scam, or money laundering, funding terrorism or whatever else. If people would just learn more instead of crying scam at everything, they would understand how these can be very profitable businesses for the companies running the Paid Autosurf and for their members.
You do need to be careful however, since there are so many well respected Paid Autosurf programs around today, there are many more that aren’t. Most are pure pyramid or Ponzi schemes setup to look like Paid Autosurf programs and their main objective is to close up shop one day and take your hard earned money with them, and do it all over again. You need to be careful and you need to do your homework. Don’t be fooled by promises made on some flashy website. Search online and do some research. Bad programs will soon have lots of bad press about them. If you find many people complaining about the same program, don’t join. Also beware of brand new programs as they pop up on the internet every day. If a program is very new, they may not have been around long enough to earn a reputation; good or bad. If that’s the case, then my suggestion is to stay away.
There aren’t many programs available today to help folks earn extra money without taking high risks. If you diversify over a few of these programs and limit your investments to very small amounts at first, you can quickly get back your initial investments and start earning more money with your gains. You will quickly be earning more money with no financial risk and you will be on your way to generating a substantial extra income for yourself.
