In my case however it is unlikely I will be benefiting from these changes. If had option to 100% eliminate ad sales bonus and have bonus ads instead or ad credits to advertise it would be beneficial in my case as well as others with small down lines that dont include sales commissions.
I'm going to respond to this in sections of your paragraph.

Not sure if it is true we would have fewer ads to click. ClixSense does guarantee a set number
of ads daily. If you think about it, the majority of ads are the fractions of cents. In fact, I some
times wonder if it wouldn't be better in regards to the ads, to go back the way it was years ago.
That is, years ago there was none of this tiny fraction of cent ads. You'd have a half cent, a whole
cent, two cents, and upwards. Personally, I think the dividing of a cent has gone way beyond it's
worth. I think it's been a turn off to people in tier 1 countries. I don't have the specs but my guess
is, most of the free ad credits, have been eat up with those fractions. Also, if you take a strong look
at the quality of the ads, you can see it might be true. It just might stand to reason that change
will be a good thing in regards to advertising. It is not the number of ads that is important. It is
the quality of ads and the $ amount of the ad. Which would you prefer? Ten 1/10 of cent ads or
Ten 1 cent ads?
Just for the record, I lost a lot of my active downline when they brought in the cent fractions.
If you have a large down line you will receive a 1 time retroactive bonus if they were active enough by the higher standards.
The retroactive sign up bonus, has nothing to do with a large downline. It simply states that if
you have active referrals and you have NOT been paid the sign up commission on them, now you
will with the new amounts. So what? This means more money when you achieve direct referrals
that have accumulated the stated new amount....and it can be achieved in doing not just ad views,
but tasks, videos, offers. Here again, it's about quality too. It's about members that promote, doing
a good job at promoting their business. ClixSense is their business. ClixSense is your business. It's
a program to be proud of and that takes explaining to people how it works and focusing on getting
people that will be active and that will stay active longer than a day. Don't you want that? Wouldn't
you rather have more money on active members in a sign up bonus than have cents that you can't
even buy a candy bar with? Let's bring the quality back to ClixSense and lets all start making more
money. If you think about it, it was years before the offers, tasks, were implemented. It just makes
sense it would all increase since there is more ways to make money and faster than ever before.
If you are very lucky and have ad buyers you might benefit. If most of your earnings come from your own activity and a small semi active down line that has never purchased any advertising your earnings and the value of the upgrade go down. Less ads for both to click.
I personally never count on luck when promoting an opportunity. Sure, a person might say they
have a bit of luck in the promo arena but I don't say that. I work and it is my work that brings in
referrals for me. If I don't get referrals, it's not because I had bad luck. It's because I did not work
hard enough. You have to do something at some point in time if not several points in time, to
explain your offer and how your offer will benefit the other. The incentive of NO LIMITS on the
percentage of sales commissions is a great one compared to what it was. Now I don't know about
you but as soon as I have some spare time, I'm going to try to catch every advertiser online and
send them right here to my ClixSense! I don't see how you figure that your earnings will go down.
There is no way your earnings would go down unless of course you quit or your referrals quit. I
just don't follow your rationale at all. The only thing I can even come close to seeing with your
point is, the not giving ad credits any more. Most GPT and PTC don't give free ad credits. I think
as I explained, maybe we will see more quality ads and maybe we'll even see more people wanting
to advertise here besides what we've been seeing.
I wouldn't go getting my drawers in a wad from jump. That I will say. In business you have to
stay on top of things or the competition will melt your butter. You also have to take risks. You
have to implement things and see how they work. If something does not work, you remove it.
Hopefully, you'll get to eat your words and hopefully, you will stay an active contributing member
to find out.
