A Beginner's Guide to StudioTraffic
Here's the first version of my Beginner's Guide to StudioTraffic. By reading this guide, you will learn and understand how Studio Traffic works, and you will also be able to signup for it! Please read the WHOLE guide inorder to understand it as much as possible, also, I'm including a special contest at the end of this guide for those who wish to signup. If you dont feel like reading the whole thing, then you can just Click Here to signup right away. So anyway, here's a gist of how StudioTraffic works:
NOTE: It is VERY important that you use the link that I gave you to signup, inorder to participate in my contest. You can read about my contest at the end of this guide.
What is StudioTraffic?
In short, StudioTraffic is a 2 year old program that pays you to autosurf and look at advertisers' websites. It also gives you the opportunity to advertise your own website for free. It costs you nothing to sign up, nothing to autosurf for cash, and nothing to advertise your website -- it's completely free!
Making an account at StudioTraffic is easy. Simply Click Here and you will be at their main page, simply click the "Join us Now" link or the "Register Now, It's Free" button and you will be taken to the registration page. After filling in the required information, you should receive a confirmation email.
Occasionally, people find that they don't receive their confirmation email within 5 minutes, as stated on the site. If you have this problem, go to the StudioTraffic home page and click on the "Chat with us Live" button on the left side of the home page (below the login box) and let the customer service know. They are very friendly and will take care of it.
Afterwards, log in, and you will be taken to the "Members Area."
How does StudioTraffic work?
There are a few terms that you need to know. Firstly, all accounts have an account level. When you first sign up, you are given a $10 account level. Every time you complete your surfing requirement (more on this is coming), you earn 1% of your account level. That money that you earn is your account earnings. On the 1st of each month, your account earnings are transfered to your Account Balance
While you have a $10 account level, you must surf a minimum of 200 websites in order to earn 1% of your account level. That is, for your $10 account level, your surfing requirement is 200 websites.
- Let's say you have a $10 account level, which you probably have right now. If you complete your surfing requirements for today, you will earn $10 x 1% = $0.10. So, you would have $0.10 in earnings.
Different people have different surfing requirements, depending on their account level:
Account levels of $10 (the "free" account level) must surf 200 sites a day.
Account levels of $20 – $490 must surf 100 sites a day.
Account levels of $500 – $990 must surf 70 sites a day.
Account levels of $1000 or more must surf 50 sites a day.
How do I autosurf?
Click the "Surf STV" link in the menu on the left side of the "Members Area" page. A new window will open and you will begin autosurfing automatically (click here for an image)! The top frame will show your username, how many websites you have surfed for the day, etc. The bottom frame will show you a website being advertised. Surf STV will display a new website automatically every 20 seconds -- hence the term "autosurfing". There are no buttons to push, so you can sit back and relax!
What is Upgrading?
You can keep earning 1% of $10, but some people want to earn money more quickly. Thus, they choose to upgrade their account. Upgrading involves putting in more money from your pocket to increase your account level.
When you upgrade your account level to whatever it might be, don't forget that your surfing requirement may also change!
- Let's say that you want to increase your account level to $250. You would thus put in $240, which will be added to your $10 account level, giving you a $250 account level. You would then be making $250 x 1% = $2.50 every day you complete your surfing requirements.
How do I upgrade my account?
- So, in the above example where you upgraded your account level to $250, you would only need to surf 100 websites (instead of 200) in order to earn 1% of your account level.
Click the "Upgrade Account" link in the menu and you will be taken to the appropriate page (click here for an image). The first thing you will notice are "Your Payment Gateway Accounts". Select the appropriate gateway/payment processor and fill in your processor's account ID/email address. This information is necessary for StudioTraffic to verify your account information when you upgrade or when you withdraw your earnings.
Next, scroll down, and in the box next to "Increase Account Level by", enter the amount with which you want to upgrade. Then select the payment processor with which you want to upgrade. If you wish to upgrade by a payment processor that is not listed, such as PayPal, click on the "Submit a Ticket" link in the menu and ask for assistance.
Withdrawing Your Earnings:
At the first of every month, your earnings for the month will be added to your account balance. You may then take the money in your account balance and use some or all of it to upgrade your account, or you may decide to withdraw some or all of it.
To withdraw your money, click on the "Withdraw Money" link in the menu, and fill in the appropriate information. In order to withdraw your money, you need to have an account level of at least $100.
What are Credits?
You will notice that when you are surfing, you will get something called credits. Credits, sometimes called hits by users, allow surfers to view your website, should you choose to include it in the rotation of websites.
At the $10 account level, every website that you surf will earn you 0.5 credits. Upgrading your level to any higher amount will increase the number of credits you earn per website that you surf to 1.0 credits.
- Let's say that you have just finished your surfing and you have 320 credits. And let's say that you want surfers to see your website. You may add your website to the rotation, and because you have 320 credits, your site can receive up to 320 hits. As you can see, if you want your website to continually gain exposure, you yourself will need to continue to surf and earn credits.
What is Compounding?
Finally, you may have noticed something called compounding. If you choose to compound your earnings, at the end of the specified month (either 1 month later, 3 months later, 6 months later, or 9 months later), all of the money in your account earnings will automatically be used to upgrade your account.
I personally do not recommend compounding your earnings at the moment, for if you choose to compound, you will not have access at the end of the month to your earnings. However, this is a personal decision. I recommend that you start compounding after you have withdrawed whatever amount you first put it, just so that you will feel more confident that the company is actually legit.
That's about it in terms of what beginners need to know. Yes, I know that there are a few more things here and there that I have not talked about. However, if you are just starting off, this information should be good enough to get you going. More information and images will be added as I get the chance to do so. I will probably have a version 2 of this guide, which will explain some of the strategies on how to compound, and so on....
If you would like clarification about anything related to StudioTraffic, read their FAQs, visit their forum (http://www.studiotraffic.org/forum), or of course, you may send me a private message or email.
I will be holding a special contest, either each month, or every other month, or I will just email all the people that signed up and let them know about it. In order to participate in the contest, you have to signup with my referral link, which is Here (if you're not interested in the contest, then it'd be nice if you still signup with that link, since I was the one that introduced you to the program)
So the contest is this, the person that upgrades their account level the most for the month of Augest will get $15 sent to them via PayPal as the prize.
Thats about it, and remember, if you have ANY questions, please feel free to ask me. Also, if you are new to the 'free site' scene or the 'auto surfing site' scene, then i'd suggest you to learn about it, and get into it, its really fun and an awsome experience.
p.s. please dont flame me, as you can see, I have spent over 2 hours making this guide, so please respect my work, and if you have a stupid comment to make, then please dont post at all.
