Review In Brief: FamilyClix is a PTC (pay-to-click) website and also a traffic exchange. I really am not a fan of PTC sites, but this one is certainly not one to be trusted, if you look into its online connections.
What is FamilyClix About?
FamilyClix is considered to be a PTC site – meaning pay to click. You click on Ads and you earn a fraction of a cent to do so.
There are also other ways to make money, such as via contests, cash offers and surveys.
FamilyClix also has traffic exchange options.
This means that businesses or individuals can display Ads on the site and drive traffic to their website, product, squeeze page and so on….
The Ads that show up for you to click on, are the very Ads you can pay to be displayed.
Considering that these are the same adverts that people are clicking on to merely make money, you can imagine the conversion rate of such Ads is not going to be very high.
Even though many products advertised are in the “make money online” niche
– a majority of people taking part in PTC sites are looking to make money for free.
Is FamilyClix A Scam?
FamilyClix is connected to the Golden Group Network – which is a group of PTC sites, which unfortunately are considered to contain several scam sites.
One of the sites Golden Group Network included was called “Balkanikaclix” – and that site was actually closed down for being a scam.
The fact that this site is part of this group is a good reason for staying away from it.
While I can’t say for sure that FamilyClix is a scam, I will say to tread with caution and ideally look at sites that are definitely legit in nature, rather than having this reputation.
There are a lot of PTC sites out there branded as scams –
In fact, I certainly would say I know plenty of online marketers that would claim that all PTC sites are a scam in one way or another.
While I don’t brand them all a scam, the income potential you can generate is very low…. unless you can get referrals to do the work for you.
Getting natural referrals to sign up under you requires some affiliate marketing knowledge. (I will elaborate a bit further on in this review!).
One of the highest rated PTC sites out there is Clixsense – while I don’t personally give it a great score due to income potential, if you’re into PTC sites, stick to ones that are legit.
Is FamilyClix Free?
FamilyClix is completely free to sign up, but there is an upgrade option – which is very common with these sites too.
Upgrade options go up to $800 and with each upgrade comes its own variation of extra little “benefits.”
If you really want to try out this site, I strongly recommend you see how you can make there for free before you spend money.
How DO YOU Make Money With FamilyClix?
Being a PTC site, obviously the most obvious and straight forward method is to click on Ads.
You will only spend as a max 10 seconds on each Ad… however you only make $0.02 per one of these.
Yes. You would have to click on 5 such Ads to make a single CENT!!!
I don’t know why anyone would consider this when there are so many other ways to make money online.
Clicking on these Ads, you may make something like a single dollar in an hour and you probably will not be able to achieve that, because they run out of Ads quickly and then you have to wait.
Just like Clixsense or other PTC sites, getting referrals to do the pay-to-click work for you seems the only logical way to go if you pursue this – if at all.
Getting referrals just means, you get someone else to sign up via your personalised affiliate link.
If someone signs up under you, every time they click on an Ad to make money, you do too.
This is also only a fraction of a cent each time, but the more referrals you have, the more you make.
This is something you’d have to build up over a long period of time.
In addition, as I previously mentioned, to be successful at it, you’d need some affiliate marketing knowledge and know how to use it effectively.
You can also buy referrals to do the hard work for you…. But does it work?
I had the option to buy 100 referrals for $20.
I don’t buy into this “rented referral” idea whatsoever.
Some PTC sites are offering unlimited referrals – thousands of them – but where is this unlimited supply coming from?
The only logical answer in my mind is, they’re bots. You can read more about what I make about rented referrals over at my CrisClix Review
Creating Ads on FamilyClix
If you have your own product, website or forum – maybe you think this website could offer a cheap advertising possibility.
Unfortunately, this sort of traffic has a really bad conversion rate – for the simple reason that a majority of people really into doing PTC have no interest in spending money.
A majority will not even be looking at the Ad at all.
I’m an exception – I take a real good look at the Ads, because I’m interested in the quality of the products being advertised and potentially reviewing them in future.
But obviously this is unusual, because I am not trying to make money through PTC. In fact, reading the Ads was the most interesting part for me…
A majority of people signing up will barely acknowledge the content
So, What is FamilyClix – Scam Or Legit?
FamilyClix and other sites connected to it have been under some scrutiny…
While you may make a small amount of money on this site, I would certainly be cautious.
If you’re interested in making money with PTC, you need to know that on your own, it will never be very much at all.
You will also do well to know which sites you can trust, so you don’t risk spending a lot of time on these sites – only for something to go wrong or not receive your money.
If you want to make decent money online, know that there are legitimate options out there.
What are your experiences with PTC sites… I’d really like to hear from anyone who has purchased rented referrals?! Have you made your money back?

All the best… 🙂
