    Earn $10 A Day on Neobux 2018

    Earn $10 A Day on Neobux 2018 28th Jan 18 at 2:55 PM
    As our old thread was stuck in a time warp, (2016) thought it was time to bring it into the present.

    As the title says........Our aim is to try and earn $10 a day on Neobux which none of us are achieving yet.

    Neobux is a paid to click site where you earn small amounts from clicking daily ads and there are the usual offer walls, surveys, and tasks.

    To really get anywhere though, you purchase referrals who in turn earn you money. There are different levels to move up with Ultimate being the icing on the cake.

    Neobux is quite complicated to get your head around initially and it's not a get rich quick scheme by any means. Its a long term commitment which I personally think is worth spending time on.

    Any newcomers are welcome and us regulars will answer what we can. Dont forget to use the referral board.

    Renting Referrals

    Basics of Renting

    You can only have direct referrals after you meet these conditions:
    - Been a member for at least 15 days
    - Have made at least 100 clicks

    There are limits to the number of referrals you can rent or add direct depending on your membership type and time using the site.

    Rented referral renewal discounts:

    - 15 days = 0% discount
    - 30 days = 5% discount
    - 60 days = 10% discount
    - Autopay = 15% discount
    - 90 days = 18% discount
    - 150 days = 25% discount
    - 240 days = 30% discount

    MY ADVICE:

    Try to extend RR's for 240 days ASAP to minimise costs and maximise profits.

    If extending for less than 90 days enable AP but if extending for 90 days and over turn AP off.

    CALCULATIONS INFO

    AVG is (#RRClicks/#RR)

    Daily Profit = Daily Earnings - Daily Expenses

    Daily Earnings= Your clicks, your referral clicks, minijobs, adprizes, offers, all in terms of money. For example 10 clicks from referrals = 10*$0.005=$0.05

    Daily Expenses= Daily referral extension cost, daily membership cost (if any), recycling costs. Example if you extend your referrals for +240 days you need $1.12 every 240 days or $1.12/240=$0.0047 daily cost for 1 referral. Multiply for more refs.

    How to calculate BEP for standard membership?

    Referral cost is $0.20 (30 days)
    Referral Click Value (Standard): $0.005
    Formula is: ($0.20/$0.005)/30=1.33 AVG

    Basic cost is $.20 rental + $1.12 240 day extension so at $0.005 per click a rr needs to click 264 ads before they are profitable (1.1 ad clicks daily) - if you recycle then the number of ad clicks needed before a profit is made increases.

    Useful Terms/abbreviations

    AP - AutoPay (automatically extends refs for you if they have more than 20 days left) Don't forget to manually extend refs with less than 20 days.

    BEP - break-even point (the point at which cost or expenses and revenue are equal)

    DR - direct referral (joined using your ref link or user name)

    PTC - Pay to Click

    RR - rented referral (rented on site)

    Hi KM!! Been a while since I posted. To be honest, Neobux has slipped my mind a little recently. It seems to have been a lot quieter on there since Christmas.Nowhere near as many Ads.

    Not much has changed with my account as a result. Given up on Adprizes for now too, I haven't won anything since September

    26 RR's
    6,899 Points
    9,908 Coins
    $3.150 in my account.

    No extensions needed for another 3 months, but reluctant to get more RR's just yet unless the number of Ads increases.

    Hi KM and cufc_mike.

    Thanks for starting the new thread KM.

    cufc_mike - Yeah, quite slow with the number of ads just now, so think you are sensible taking it easy with the RR. No point in overstretching yourself, though think if I'd your balance I'd be tempted to buy even just 3 as you've almost enough anyway to pay for them and then extend them for the 240 days when it comes to the end of their first 30. Not sure I'd be brave enough to try many more than that, but guess you could then reassess after you extended them (if you did buy just a few more), or obviously if the number of ads increased (and your balance did too).

    I'm aiming to remember to buy 3 RR tomorrow evening and then I'll be sitting there for ages as that will take me to 500RR. My current plan is to get all 500RR extended so that I don't have any due within the first 120 days and then start buying more RR to take me on my journey to 750. Guessing that it will be after summer before I'm able to even think of that (unless the number of ads suddenly increases).

    Suppose the advantage to lack of ads is that I'm actually getting more time to do non-neobux things. Normally not very exciting, but all things that need doing.

    Oh, just remembered the reason I thought to come to post...
    Had a banner at the top of my ad page that said to complete a survey for $1.00. Well, I clicked in, answered a couple of ususal start of survey type questions, thought I was going to get kicked out, but nope - asked me what my biggest achievement was of the year and why. I typed in a sentence (not too short, but not exactly a paragraph) so you can imagine my surprise when I got credited for that little effort.
    Hope others also get that on their neobux. I'd be surprised if I get anything like it again though.

    Thanks for the info on the $1 survey. I had seen it but as Im trying to get to target on last day of swagbucks......couldnt be doing with a long winded survey but as you said........One answer and a nice liitle bonus in the balance.

    I dont have any that need extending now until Valentines day and there is usually a promo around that time so now saving like mad to extend a whole bunch more in the never ending extending cycle.

    Dont give up Mike.......just keep clicking away and just rent what you can afford.

    Dont forget to rent Gromit!!!!

    Hi KM.
    I'm also trying to get target on last day on month on SB. Almost there, thankfully. May take some time off SB though as getting a bit fed up with it. Loads of 20 minute surveys for a measly 32SB. No way am I putting that effort in for that payback. Plus, don't think I'd be able to get the bonus from a full month in February anyway as we're away a couple of nights, so as well to take it easy.

    That's really good that you don't have any needing extending until the middle of February. Fingers crossed for a promo.

    Its very rare I get the full month on swagbucks and I sometimes wonder if its worth it for the extra time it takes. I never stop doing swagbucks altogether but will not be aiming for target every day in Feb. I have a life and work and exercise and an allotment and kids and a husband. Oops. Just as well said husband doesnt read what I put in here.........wouldnt be too happy about being last

    Yeah, likewise - I often don't manage full months on SB, but SB can be so annoying at times like when you've almost done the month and then get days when it seems near impossible even to reach the first target. But as I did manage in January, should get a nice bonus

    Anyway, back to the subject of this thread...
    Just bought 3RR, so that's me now at 500RR
    Had originally hoped to get to this point in October, but just didn't happen and then we were on holiday for a week in October, but at least I've finally got to 500RR.

    Now to sit here for what will no doubt seem an age. But no point in stepping over too soon.

    Current Stats are...
    RR: 500
    Balance $16.242
    Points: 163

    Hope everyone else is doing good

    Well done Gromit on the 500 refs

    Nice little amount saved as well. You'll be catching up to me before long.

    Thanks KM. Yeah, sure feels nice to have finally reached 500RR.

    Think I'll sit here for a while (if I can control the urge to buy more RR). But my thoughts are that it's most sensible to give me a big enough gap to buy the next 250 without bothering about having to extend the 500 I already have, which is why I hope to stay here until I've got around 120 days of no RR needing recycled. That will be a mammoth task in itself.

    Not really sure what my plan is after that, whether I'll aim for ultimate one day, or not. Or whether I'll look at one of the cheaper gold packages....

    Did you decide on whether you were going to go for Diamond?

    And can't see me catching up, but that's fine. I'm happy with you a year in front. Gives me an idea of what to maybe do next. lol.

    Yes I am definitely going to go for the Diamond.

    I will definately go for the Ultimate the following year but think Diamond will begood for me if only for the holiday cover and the costs of renewing will be cheaper which I need to do a lot of over the next year.

    The further I get into neobux the more I realise that making the most of discount periods is crucial.

    Id love to get so in front of renewing for 240 days that I only needed to do it in the future when there was a discount offer on if that makes sense?

    My long term hopes are that 2 years in October....(a long way off I know) I can start to take a monthly payment from neo to help paying off the mortgage. No idea what that figure will be but obviously the bigger the better.

    Neobux is a pretty awesome site got 4500 refs myself with the ultimate badge used to be 5k but had a few issues. Used to keep a daily stats topic on their forums but got banned in September and I had put so much work into referal analysis to pefect a recycling strategy. Was a big shame since their comminity is awesome. So been looking for somewhere new to beable to post about the site.

    Seems like you have it all figured out so far, always wondered about diamond myself but since there is little references to go by have stuck with uktimate.

    Have noticed a reduction in AVG from autocycled refs lately I think this is due to refs around 14 days sometimes going to click 3 ads instead of 4 and not so long ago its took a month or so before this happened.

    Whats your averages like?

    Welcome to the the thread Adam

    I recognised your name as I used to read your stats over on Neo though I was a little bamboozled sometimes on your recycling adventures.

    I missed you on there. What on earth would they ban you for?
    Not that I will be doing it any time soon but what processor do you use for payouts now paypal has gone?

    I use payza, I was a little worried after paypal went but payza is pretty decent slightly more fees than paypal and the bank transfer takes a few days.

    Well the recycling trials are still going on its jist too bad I cant share them with everyone.

    I was banned for a comment on magnets thread I believe about his friends low averages.

    And I had 2 strikes from february 2013. They stick so my clean 2014 2015 2016 do not matter I protested it for awhile with support but my ban is forever a 30 day ban would have been ok forever was harsh I read the forums daily still.

    I had put loads of work on ref analysis so I was pretty gutted that I could no longer keep my topic alive especially when people were asking questions in it still

    HTH some of us.
    I've only got about $10 just now as had a load that needed extending only yesterday. Typical! But will use what I have to extend.

    And Hi Adam Welcome to the thread. Sounds like you could teach us all a thing or two about recycling. It's certainly a subject I struggle to get my head round.

    KM - Have you yet gone for Diamond? Or are you waiting until just before you go on holiday?

    Hello Gromitfan

    Certainly can things have developed substantially since my forum ban, things have changed especially for ultimate accounts who rely on autocycling. I have been eager to post about it, maybe I will start an online blog but I do not know how I could get my old neobux readers to know about it.

    I beleive now that recycling is now nesseasry rather than optional as before. I keep stats of all my recycled refs seperaratly so I stats for autocycle regs manual refs and then a real average for the manual refs to see if there really is a difference when you take the costs of recycling into account. Very interesying indeed!

    Managed to extend about 55 refs for 240 days in the promo.

    Gromit........definitely going for the Diamond but in true MSE style, I'm waiting till the end of March when its Neobux 10th birthday (I think) and there should be a discount on golden packs.

    Adam.......if you were to start a blog, you could let me know the usernames of people you would like to know on Neobux forums and I could pop into their threads and let them know.

    Good savings there with the discount and good plan with diamond discount. I do fear for those autocycle refs though mine are producing sub 0.60s alot of days now.

    I am not sure if that would be against neobux TOS.

    I asked them if I could advertise a blog on there with my neostats to carry on my stats and they said no as I had nothing to gain from it?
