What is Clixsense.com? I will answer that question for you and many more in this Clixsense.com review.
I actually never heard of Clixsense.com until I stumbled on it today.
I decided to sign up and take a look into it.
Is it worth your time to sign up too?
Is Clixsense a scam?
Let's get a closer look at this website and see what this is all about.
Here's Why You're Not Making More Money.
(And 2 Steps to Making More)
What is ClixSense.com?
First looking at Clixsense, it looks very similar to other "get paid to" sites, such as Swagbucks. You get paid to do different tasks, such as take surveys, complete micro tasks, watch advertisements and bring on referrals.
It's definitely not as pretty or organized as Swagbucks.
Let's go into each option specifically.
I didn't fill out my profile information, which may give you more access to surveys. For now, there are only 2 available.
I assume these are like your typical surveys that you would fill out on any survey site. My biggest issue with surveys is that they take a long time, and you don't get much pay for the time that it takes.
However, you may enjoy doing these while you're watching TV, and those times could add up. I'm not completely knocking surveys, I just don't personally feel like they're worth the time.
There are a bunch of different things going on under the "Offers" category. It looks like this is a gathering of a bunch of different offer sites that connect though ClixSense.
You can earn ClixCents from these sites for shopping, signing up for offers, signing up for free trials, signing up for coupons, completing surveys, donating and much more.
1 ClixCents is = to $0.1. For instance, if you sign up for Hulu with Persona.ly (one of the sites within ClixSense), you will earn 750 ClixCents. This is equal to $7.50.
Here you complete small tasks (for small pay). As you go through the different tasks, you can level up and earn badges.
These badges will allow even more tasks to open up to you. I tried to look for tasks here, and nothing was available. I then searched for potential jobs to see what would open up if I were leveled up.
Only 3 jobs showed up, and they were all level 3. How can you get to level 3 if there aren't any lower-level jobs to do?
Also, there are only 3 tasks here to complete. There doesn't seem to be much of a money-making opportunity in the tasks section.
This is probably the only way you can actually sort of make OK money with ClixSens - by referring other people to the site. Here are some ways you can earn as an affiliate.
I actually think this is not going to be that easy to earn money as an affiliate, and I'll tell you why later. But it's better than the other ways.
I am an affiliate marketer myself, and there are much, much better ways to earn money as an affiliate. I'll talk to you about that at the end of this post.
There's a section for games, but it looks like they're just for fun. I don't see any way to earn with these.
How Does ClixSense.COM Work?
These types of "get paid to" and survey sites generally all work the same.
ClixSense gathers a bunch of different offers, and the companies behind the offers pay them for traffic, sales or leads. Then they distribute a part of their earnings to the people who are completing the tasks.
Making money is much, much better for the survey sites than for the people actually taking the surveys.
ClixSense is not a scam. It's just one of many of these survey or "get paid to" sites out there.
I didn't find any complaints about the company, which means it likely pays out on time.
ClixSense.com Review - Pros
- Easy to register
- Something you can do in your spare time
ClixSense.com Review - Cons
- Tasks / surveys are tedious and some can take a long time
- You get very little pay per task / survey
- Not many micro jobs available
- You have to sometimes sign up at other sites to complete the tasks
There's nothing wrong with ClixSense.com or other sites like it. My only issue with these sites is that they don't seem worth the time.
I've done survey sites and "get paid to" tasks in the past. Surveys are the worst for me because they seem to take a VERY long time, and most of them only pay a few dollars.
Let's say a survey takes you 20 minutes, and you get paid $5. (I'm being optimistic here.) It would take you an hour to complete 3 surveys, and you would make $4 an hour.
Minimum wage is going up to $15 an hour in some places!
The other issue is that you're not always going to qualify for surveys. So, it may take you a while to complete even 3 surveys.
With that said, if it's something you're just doing on the side, and you can do it while watching TV, then why not? It can add up.

Make More Money With Less Time
You can make money online in many, many different ways. Survey sites are certainly one way, but as mentioned, they are not my favorite way because you have to spend a lot of time on tedious tasks with very little pay.
And of course, you'll never be able to get rich doing something like that.
One of the ways you can make money with ClixSense that we talked about above is through affiliate marketing. You get a commission when you refer someone to ClixSense.
Affiliate marketing is what I do, and what I recommend.
NOTE: Read my free guide, How To: Affiliate Marketing for Beginners.
However, I just don't think being an affiliate marketer for ClixSense is going to get you very far. It just doesn't pay enough.
There are affiliate programs out there that pay much, much more.
You DO have to put some time and effort into it upfront, but once you get that ball rolling, you will make MUCH more than $4 per hour. Things that you create today will continue to pay you well into the future.
Just check out these affiliate marketing success stories to see what can happen in this business.
Here's the site that taught me step by step how to create this website.
If you like to do surveys and tasks in your spare time just to add a few bucks to your income, then ClixSense.com is a fine site to do this.
If you'd like to learn how to earn more money, then I recommend learning affiliate marketing. Your time is used much better with affiliate marketing because you will make much, much more by the hour overall.
It does take time and effort up front before you will begin to reap the rewards, but it will be worth it if you stick with it.
