A Small Money Saving Tip when Buying Banner Advertising (Banner Impressions) at JillsClickCorner (and other popular ShiftCode GPT Sites)

One day in the not so distant past I was curious and asked the owner of  ShiftCode (the gold standard of Get Paid To (GPT) web site scripts)

What’s the Most Popular ShiftCode GPT Site Currently’ (because I was looking for a place to buy advertising on the site where I’d get the most exposure for my 468px x 60px banners)

He answered  ‘JillsClickCorner’ (and yes he was serious!)  It was huge surprise revelation to me (yes, I had been a Jill’s GPT member for years but never might have guessed it was #1 ! )  I guess it has a huge international member base of loyal site fans.


Ok, please note that the rates I’m quoting are from today (02/07/2016) and may change (out of my control because it’s not my site)



These are the banner impression rate packages I find:

  • 10,000 impressions for $1.99
  • 20,000 impressions for $2.99
  • 50,000 impressions for $5.99
  • 100,000 impressions for $9.99
  • 250,000 impressions for $19.99
  • 500,000 impressions for $29.99
  • 1,000,000 impressions for $39.99
  • 10,000 impressions for 199 game tokens!
  • 100,000 impressions for 1000 game tokens!

Note that I’ve already purchased banner advertising here in the past (extensively) so if I go to Advertising Stats and click on Banner Stats then I see this:


…and there when I choose a banner that I previously purchased (doesn’t matter if it still has impressions of not) and I click on the Please Choose drop-down to the upper right of that banner then I get a small menu of which one of the options is Buy Impressions:



…and I find out that I can purchase 50,000 more impressions for that banner for only $5 which is much better than purchasing a new banner impressions package for $5.99 (not really a huge difference but if you do a lot of banner advertising like I do then it all adds up!)

This also has other implications, it means that you can simply purchase a smaller amount of impressions at your initional banner impressions buy and then go straight to Add Impressions 50,000 or more impressions immediately (minimum $5 though)  

There you go, not a huge tip but I’m glad I know about it – and I’m glad to share it with you.

Statement Noticed
on 02/02/2016

GPTBoycott.Com is now back under its original ownership!

GPTBoycott is a website which organized boycotts of "get paid" websites which failed to pay their members as promised. GPTBoycott operated a Boycott List to "name and shame" the websites which refused to pay their members, so that visitors could avoid wasting their time and money.

GPTBoycott also ran an active Discussion Forum which had many thousands of active members. Members and owners of "get paid" programs met at GPTBoycott to discuss their experiences with "get paid" websites (both good and bad), to discuss issues affecting the "get paid" industry generally, and to make friends and contacts.

GPTBoycott was sold in 2009, but the site is now back under its original ownership. While the era of traditional "get paid" websites is now largely over, we would love to hear from any visitors who used GPTBoycott as a resource or who participated in our Discussion Forum.

If you used to visit GPTBoycott and would like to say "hello", or if you have any ideas for how GPTBoycott can help visitors going forwards, please send us a message! We look forward to hearing from you.

Original Text Below:

There are many companies on the internet which promise to reward or pay you for various activities. Some require you to complete online surveys, while others require you to participate in investment programs, view advertisements, or to shop via their website. These types of website are known as "get paid" programs, and are the focus of GPTBoycott.

Many users have found that by joining and participating in these "get paid" programs it is possible to earn some extra money each month. This reflects the fact that most online "get paid" programs are honest and pay their members as promised. However, there are other sites which look to take advantage of their users by acting dishonestly, improperly or fraudulently. The aim of GPTBoycott is to name the offending 'get-paid' companies, and to urge our visitors to stop using them. If you're tired of companies stealing your time and money, and if you want to know which sites to avoid, take a look around this site, and help us stamp out fraudulent behavior online!

GPTBoycott has been tackling online scams since September 2001.

Some Considerations on Buying a New 'Fresh' GPT Site Script from ShiftCode or Purchasing a More Mature Pre-Owned GPT Site that Has it’s Own Set of Benefits

One problem with trying to sell a second or third owner ShiftCode GPT which has been around for some time is that most people know that they can start with a blank slate new installation directly from ShiftCode pretty inexpensively nowadays. 

Even if there is the mid-priced pre-made cookie cutter professional design theme bought and applied and the 'cable-guy' style friend of the family computer geek / coder to get all the configuration settings close enough to perfect -- all that STILL doesn't add up to much more than a couple of hundred bucks !?!

...and there you go.  The formerly plain jane default site now looks and performs almost like a million bucks for just a couple of hundos :-)

    • GPT BUSINESS IN A BOX (pre-owned site): Yes, there are usually many benefits to buying a very popular GPT site that has a loyal following and a nice thematic design and many people consider that a great advantage such as a 'business-in-a-box' so to speak. 

      This above option is usually the best option for the tech 'squeamish' or those who feel 'incapable' on their own in hi-tech looking or sounding situations.
  • GPT SITE AS A TUB OF LEGOS TO BE BUILT EXACTLY AS YOU LIKE (buy the freshly installed script from ShiftCode):  There are other people who are techies and power user admins that delight in going through each and every setting and tweaking the site exactly as it should be according to the ideal image we see in our mind.  This also goes for the design theme.

    I, myself, always decided to do all the design work myself (the front page screenshot pictured below is all my own design work from scratch by hand that I was very proud of from my own PaidTheBest GPT)  Though professional designers may have looked at it as sophomoric at best - everything looked and worked EXACTLY how I wanted it to!

    This home-made design stood steadfast, perfectly, and extremely effectively for the several year long extended run of my then popular PaidTheBest GPT site.  All I can report is that the design I made myself looked like NO other site in the industry yet it worked perfectly as a beacon gracefully luring thousands of weary penniless paid survey seeking internet travelers over the years :-)



  • Even with the 3000+ built in loyal member base and the paid for professional design someone with an already completely set up GPT site - with my personality I would consider that a severe disadvantage over being proud to discover the proper settings and tweak them, compose all the promotional text myself start promoting, learn all I can about web SEO and do the submission myself, etc

It's not the destination to a popular and GREAT GPT site - it's the journey getting there using your own brain and skill that holds the joy in the web site for me;-)

That's why I will always prefer to buy my web site in many small parts that spill all over the floor (so to speak) when I dump it out rather than to carefully unwrap the pretty wrapping paper only to discover the most perfect state of a web site all wrapped up very carefully in bubble wrap just waiting to be plugged in and 'played' :-)

Noteworthy Family of Connected Get Paid To (GPT) Sites with Admins that are Totally On The Ball ! Totally Worth Your While and Free to Join!

The following group of diverse Get Paid To web sites have for some time now been operated by a small cooperative group of GPT site and Affiliate Network administrators that have  have gained a reputation and respect for being amongst the (if not THE) the hardest working people in the industry for over a decade now.

If you value patronizing GPT sites that are totally free free from the risk of chaos brought on by the likes of site incompetent or disorganized administrators / site management then this group of sites is for you.  The sites below are passionately cared for and attended to by admins that truly are totally on the ball (and have been now for over a decade)  These sites below rarely (if ever) have been late or short on any member reward payments and prize fulfillment.  These sites always seem to have all of their in-house offers in order, up-to-date, and fresh because they are lovingly attended to by people who care.

These sites always seem to be right on the scene ready to competently make the latest offer walls available for the site members within hours or days of them being released.  These admins always seem to be right there at the ready, willing, and able to promptly the minute you cash out or request another type of reward from any of the GPTs they are in charge of overseeing.  Need help, send an inbox, support ticket in, or ask a question in the shoutbox chat and BOOM, within minutes you’ll have your answer.

You think that surely I must be making this all up and embellishing  most of it but no, there are such admins and sites – all you need to experience the graceful magic of admins that properly know how to manage sites and actually take it to a whole new level of  fine art, intelligence, skill, caring and experience all wrapped up in a small group of admins overseeing the following GPT sites:

Yes, you may recognize a few of these sites as having been owned in the past by other people but today all of the above fall under the same solid management.

…and they also help out on…

The one admin that I know the best and talk to often her name is Kat and I’m telling you that she is one heck of a human dynamo !   I don’t know any of the other admins that help out personally but I can say that as a team then they sure do have their hands full and the are all handling it as champs!

In addition to running these GPTs they also run the extremely popular www.RedFireNetwork.com and www.SkippyAds.com affiliate networks too  (and I’m sure other projects are always in the works in the background.)

To sum it all up, I highly recommend all of the above mentioned GPTs and Networks and they are definitely being managed extremely well and I would consider all of these people the most competent and hard working people that I know of in this business!  Thank you for keeping everything (all the sites) so beautifully well kept and efficient !  Great Work !
