The Ultimate Referrals Guide: How to get online referrals?


If you’re using paid-to-click programs, you should have realized by now that the actual earnings come from referrals. Here are the best ways to get free referrals. The more referrals you have for any paid-to-click program, the more money you make daily. 

Most sites sell or rent referrals, but there are other methods of gaining free PTC referrals; this quick guide just goes over some of the more fruitful ways of building your downline for free. Most people don’t feel bothered with making their own referrals; they think it’s either too slow, complex, or time-consuming.

All of which is not true if you’re doing it correctly. I have only invested in 1 program total; I earned the rest of my referrals using forums, telling others, and other various methods listed in this guide. I do admit when you’re first starting out with the challenge of building your downline, it can seem a bit impossible at times. That fact alone is why most people just abandon the entire idea of making their own referrals and just give in and purchase some referrals.

Don’t get me wrong, building your downline isn’t simple, but it’s nothing near as hard as most people think it is; you don’t even need a website or blog to start building your downline. You don’t have to use every method on this list, but it is a good idea to use as many as you can if you want to build your downline to its full potential. The best part about making your own referrals is it doesn’t cost you a dime.

How To Get PTC Referrals Using Forums 

One of the quickest ways to get your referral link out there and seen by as many people as possible is signature advertising. Many sites allow you to advertise referral links in your signature. Some sites enable referral trading as well; these are usually only PTC-related forums.

I have found that you can get more referrals by signature advertising in forums that are not PTC-related. Most people on PTC only or related forums are usually already members of several programs. Sites that are not part of the PTC world will spike more interest because it’s not being advertised in everyone’s signature like with PTC-related forums. Make sure you check and obey all posting rules regarding the forum you intend to advertise on.

How To Get PTC Referrals Using PTC Programs 

If you have no money to invest in a program and want to get some referrals pretty fast, you can convert to ads using your balance on another site. Just advertise your referral link from the site you wish to build referrals on an opposing side. You know the visitors will be people who are already members of one paid-to-site, so chances are if they’re not a member of the site you’re advertising, they will probably sign up for your site.

How To Get PTC Referrals Using Blogs 

Building a blog, website, or incorporating advertisements with your referral link on an existing site or blog will yield extra traffic to your referral link and have proven to generate a decent amount of referrals over time.

Get PTC Referrals Telling People You Actually Know 

There are many ways you can tell people you know, either in person, on messengers, by email, and so on. Just keep in mind the spam warning above. Many people keep all of their friends or buddies on some sort of address book or mailing list. You can start there.

How To Get PTC Referrals Using Email 

Another tip is to add your referral link to your email signatures with the most popular email clients and providers. People will see and probably visit your link when they’re reading an email from you.

Offer Users Something For being Your Referral 

You can always build referrals faster by offering users something in exchange for being your referral, whether a partial percentage of earnings generated by their activity such as $1.00 for the first 140 clicks. This method is usually best when using forums and/or a website for building referrals.


Please keep in mind before you start, it’s a terrible idea to spam your referral links on forums by unsolicited emails or instant messengers. Serious paid-to-click programs have strict rules against spam and will freeze/close your account if caught; that’s a high price to pay for the few free referrals it may or may not generate for you.
