Hey, thanks for checking out my Neobux review. There are many different websites that say you can earn money doing simple things. There are sites that pay you to take surveys, sites that pay you to watch videos, and several other variations on this kind of theme. But how bout Neobux? Is this a good way to make money? I decided to take a look to find out…
Product Name: Neobux
Owner: NeoDev, Lda, Portugal
What is Neobux?
Neobux is a website you can join to earn money by viewing adverts. It sounds easy, right? You just click adverts and earn money. Surely anyone can do that. But before you jump for joy and quit your job, let’s answer one very important question…
How much can you earn?
So, you earn money each time you click on an advert, but how much you earn depends on what level of membership you have, as well as the type of advert. Here is a table showing you the different amounts you can earn:
So, the most you can earn is 2c per click for an “Extended Exposure” advert if your membership level is Golden or higher. This is not very much at all really.
However, you can also refer other people to Neobux and earn money each time they click an advert. Here is another table which shows how much you can earn when that happens:
So the most you can earn here is 1c per click if your membership level is Golden or higher. So it seems that the secret to earning a lot of money through Neobux is referring a lot of people.
They even have an “Earnings Calculator” which has drop-down options to select how many referrals and how many clicks they average per day, and it tells you how much you are likely to earn. I switched them both to the maximum of 300 referrals clicking 4 times per day, and this is what it showed:
So, to earn just $2,204 per year, I would need to refer 300 people to Neobux. And to convince them to join, I would have to say that they too can earn $2,204 per year if they refer 300 people. But if everyone refers 300 people, Planet Earth will surely soon run out of people to actually join Neobux, right? This starts to sound suspiciously like a Pyramid Scheme.
But I just noticed that I left the first setting as “Standard. If I switch the membership type to “Ultimate” I can then up the referrals to 4,000 and it looks like this:
That is definitely looking a lot better. $58,509 per year sounds like a much better amount to earn. But I refuse to get excited by that because I think it’s extremely unlikely I am going to be able to persuade 4,000 people to sign up for Neobux. Defeatist attitude, or just being realistic?
Well, let me tell you something. If you are good enough at internet marketing to be able to get 4,000 or even 300 people to sign up to a money-making scheme, you are far better off doing something far more worthwhile with that skill, but more about that later…
Anyway, I signed up to take a look…
In the membership area, there seem to be adverts that will pay me $0.001 per click…
…and those that will pay me $0.005 per click:
The $0.001 per click adverts require that you view them for 5 seconds, and the $0.005 per click adverts require that you view them for 15 seconds.
Let’s do some math…
In one minute, I could click up to 12 of the $0.001 per click adverts and earn $0.012 (just over 1c).
Or I could click up to 4 of the $0.005 per click adverts and earn $0.02 (2c).
So the $0.005 per click adverts are going to earn me the most.
But $0.02 per minute is only $1.20 per hour!
If I did that for 8 hours a day, that would only be $9.60 per day!
And I might run out of those type of adverts to click.
And if I didn’t, I might go insane from clicking adverts all day.
What about advertising on Neobux instead?
It has crossed my mind that a better use of Neobux to earn money would be to place adverts on there myself. I could pay a small amount per click and get Neobux to display ClickBank products via my affiliate links. Occasionally someone might sign up for one of these ClickBank products and then I would earn a commission.
But honestly, if I had that kind of advertising money to spare, I would rather spend it on Pay Per Click search engine adverts. At least then they are targetted to people who are actually searching for my specific keywords. I have done a bit of PPC in the past when I had a bit of spare money to reinvest in my business. It can work if you do it right, but it can also end up costing a lot of money, so it’s certainly not without its risks.
But to advertise on Neobux would probably be rather pointless. Think about it: all the people who view your ads are only viewing them because they want to earn that tiny bit of money. As soon as the minimum time is up, they will probably close your ad. This is very different to someone clicking an advert for something they have just searched for. That type of ad would have a far higher chance of being successful because they are actually interested in it.
Is Neobux a scam?
No, I wouldn’t say it is a scam. In fact, you don’t pay anything to join, and there are no upsells from what I could see. So there is no reason to actually call it a scam as such. I just don’t think it is a worthwhile way to try to earn money online, that’s all. You won’t waste any money with Neobux, but you will waste a lot of time.
It’s not as bad as Traffic Monsoon was, which was shut down recently…
In all honesty, I don’t think Neobux is worth bothering with. I think if you are happy clicking adverts all day, there is something wrong with your brain. If you are serious about making money online, this will not satisfy you.
And if you are thinking that you plan to make money from this by getting loads of other people to sign up as your referrals, seriously, don’t bother. If you like the idea of persuading other people to sign up for things and think you can do it well, your efforts would be far better spent elsewhere (see below).
Affiliate marketing is a better way to earn money online
If you have a lot of time to spare at home on your computer, and you want to make money online, affiliate marketing is a much better option. Sure, it can take a while to build up, but it has the potential to earn you FAR more money than something like Neobux ever can.
