Do you find your attitude towards GPT changes.....

as you stay in the industry longer? Before I used to work really hard at finding referrals and trying to get them to join, but I've realized, people will join if they want. You CAN push someone to join, but you CAN'T push someone to participate in the site. I've now earned over $300 online and feel that I'm becoming a bit of an expert on various aspects, but the part I still struggle with is finding quality referrals. For instance, I have 174 referrals on one site and 45 on another, yet less than 1/4 are actually active. I guess the question is, how do you find quality and not quantity. Sorry, I'm all over the map with this post. The real point is this... I used to describe all my sites and explain in detail how the program works, etc. But now I simply tell them my earnings and if they are interested, I reply. I don't have time to "persuade" people to join. If I have to put in that much effort, it really isn't worth it anymore. I do make time for anyone that has questions, but I have stopped forcing sites down people throats. LOL BUT, what I have noticed is this, I am getting just as many referrals, but they do participate in the various sites. So, please share how have your tactics changed since you joined the industry?

I am new but plan on sticking with it. I thought about changing my tactics but I thought about when I joined and all the questions I had and no one to help. I plan on taking the route of the turtle, slow and steady.

Thank you for your reply. I always answer questions when someone asks me something, I think that's not only smart but the polite thing to do. Good luck.

Yes it is very true. Quality is more important than quantity particularly when it comes to GPT sites. I have over 16 referrals in one site but only 2 or 3 are really active. It is important that if anyone joins a site then he has to be active only then it is useful for those referring.The main reason may be that they think it will take a lot of time to reach payout and the next reason may be whether the site will pay or not? I think this can be solved to some extent by saying if we got paid or not and what is the minimum payout etc. I promote my links in my blog so I just need to promote one link.

I agree with what you are saying about payout, that's why I always tell people I have proof of payment because I think that helps people trust sites. Isn't it annoying to have 16 referrals only a few active? Grrrrrr..... But I guess without having the 16, you wouldn't have any active. It's a tough act to juggle. Good luck.
