You heard it right, The PTC Place is Officially 2 years old now!
(Woo Hoo! Cheers and Applauds! Congratulations! – You)
I wanted to explain the brief history of The PTC Place and why it is the way it is now.
Before I get to that, I wanted to give you a coupon for 20% off my e-book, Recruit More Direct Referrals to help celebrate 2 years!

History of The PTC Place
It all started on 6/25/2015 when I decided to register a new domain name that was recommended to me.
ThePTCPlace.com was the domain name.
It was recommended to me by the domain registrar after looking for a different domain name and I knew I had to had it.
I mean, come on. The…PTC…Place. It was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a place to put my PTC site referral links to get Direct Referrals for myself.
After purchasing the domain name and hosting, I started designing my new website.
It was terrible. I was a complete newbie and had no idea about designing a website (still learning to this day!).
That did not stop me though. I was motivated and determined to create a powerful site that would recruit me plenty of Direct Referrals. The first few days, I worked almost non-stop learning and trying different things.
Let’s just say, I was failing miserably. I was on the right track, I just wasn’t doing the right things. That is, until I finally started having success in late December 2015, when I designed a Top 10 PTC Page for myself and started promoting it on PTC sites.
This is what a Top 10 PTC page looks like. This is Serge’s Page.
When I first advertised my personal Top 10 PTC page, I recruited a LOT of DR and that’s when I knew I had to let others use it. So, I figured out how to make it possible to let others use it and that is exactly what I did.
I started out trying to sell a Top 10 PTC page for $100, but failed due to lack of exposure. So, I kept lowering the price (having no luck) until I came up with the ‘genius’ idea to give them away for free and display advertisements on my website to earn money that way.
It was a HIT!
I was receiving 10+ applications a day and I was creating them all day, every day.
There was just one problem… A major one…
After having my Google Adsense account permanently disabled, and losing all future revenue, I had to find another ad network to use. Adhitz was my only option.
I wasn’t earning hardly anything from the advertisements displayed and I was going broke. So, I started selling advertisements directly on my website, but PayPal didn’t like that and I was told to stop. So, I did. This was the same time I started my own rotator website, but failed because I didn’t know of the best places to advertise, it was a money waster.
That’s when I asked for my members help, and they helped me get back on my feet and that’s when things changed again.
Around June 2016, I was learning everything I could about creating websites and that’s when I decided to start charging again to use a Top 10 PTC page.
I found a payment processor to use and I started offering them for $5, then $1.99 until that payment processor said to stop. Yeah, payment processors hate anything that deals with PTC sites.
So, what do I do now?
I wasn’t earning enough from advertising network, I couldn’t sell advertising directly on my site, I couldn’t accept payments directly for using a Top 10 PTC page, what do I do?
I wrote an e-book!
(Wait, What? How do you go from trying to figure out how to accept payments to use a Top 10 PTC page, to writing an e-book?)
Long story short, I wrote my e-book, Recruit More Direct Referrals and only started offering Top 10 PTC pages to those who purchased my e-book.
It was the best thing in a long time, because people not only get to learn everything I have learned about getting Direct Referrals, but they also get to apply to receive a Top 10 PTC page if they wish to do so. The e-book gives them the knowledge to get the most out of their Top 10 PTC page.
It’s a win/win situation.
That’s where this story about The PTC Place comes to an end, for now.
The moral of the story: NEVER GIVE UP! I made so many mistakes and I had to overcome so many challenges. I could have very easily gave up a LONG time ago, but I didn’t and now look what I do. I am helping people get their own Direct Referrals and I am making just enough to pay for my business expenses, with a little bit of profit every month. ;D
I’m happy, they are happy, we are all happy!
(So, I found a couple of images from the first version of The PTC Place and I wanted to share them with you.)
First design of a “Top 10 PTC page”.
Yes, I know 4 of those sites are a scam now. Trust me when I say this, I have learned from my mistakes.
From what I remember, this style didn’t convert well, but I never gave these away to others, this was my first design that I used. It may convert better, I don’t know. With a little bit of tweaking, I could probably make it look good.
If I find more images or anything similar I will add them to this post.
If you have any questions or if you need help with anything, leave a comment down below and I will get back to you very soon.
