The Importance of Picking the Right GPT

Posted By Tony on July 30th, 2009

Picking the right GPT program is the most important thing you can do in order to succeed in the GPT market. While you’ll still be making money on offers that you complete at a sub-par site, the amount of energy and time you spend on that site could easily be utilized somewhere else and the returns exponential. This is a lesson that I have personally learned from my experience in marketing the GPT site–Moola.

Moola TowerNow, Moola does have a lot of things going for it, since it is one of the first sites of its type. Moola gives it’s users 1 cent and then the user can play a host of games against other users where they can risk a certain amount of money in their balance in an effort to double up their money. If you ever run out of money, Moola simply gives you another cent so you can continue on your Moola adventures. A stunning UI and interactive games draw users in, but unfortunately Moola’s team drops the ball when it comes to support and payout.

When Moola first started out, they only offered cash checkouts, and you would receive your payment in a timely manner usually spanning less than a month. But as word of the site grew Moola had more on its plate than it could handle. Cashouts began to be delayed for weeks on end, but there seemed to be light at the end of the tunnel when they added PayPal as a payment type.  Cashout times once again decreased to the joy of its users. Since then, this problem has resurfaced once again with cashout times taking over 22 weeks! That’s almost half a year! To counteract this, Moola has introduced another payment method–Visa PrePaid Upside Card. The Upside card is basically a prepaid debit card that Moola uses to send its funds to users. They are now promising “drastic” decreases in cashout time, but I’m at a point where I’m not even sure what that means. Are they telling the truth this time? Or are they just trying their best to appease the masses for another period of time. Either way, there are still thousands of users that participate on Moola. Why is this? Well, like I said earlier, Moola has a great game system, but their own growth is stymied by their inability to provide decent cashout times and customer support.

Moola RefAnother key attribute that I look at when choosing the “right” GPT program is their referral network. Once again, lets take a look at Moola’s.  They offers 4 levels of referrals. Now at first this may seem pretty impressive, but when you realize you’re only getting 4%, 3%, 2%, and 1% of what your referrals make you tend to get a little disheartened. With other GPT sites offering 20-40% of what your referrals earn the messily 4% pales in comparison. I began promoting Moola sometime last summer and as you can see, I’d say I’ve done fairly well in that retrospect, but due to Moola’s low referral rewards, I’ve only managed to make hundreds instead of thousands if the same referrals were applied to a different site.

Well that’s all for today folks. Hopefully that will enlighten you on the matter of choosing the right GPT site for you!

    I agree it’s very important to pick your GPTs carefully. One, because you want a quality, established site that you know is going to pay. Two, because, in the case of paid offers, you’re not supposed to do the same offer twice, so you should be doing offers on a trustworthy site with good referral benefits and the like.

    Nice post :)

      Those are also good points Jon. Hopefully, through my blog, more users will be pointed in the right direction in terms of choosing the right system.
