In this review I would like to analyze PSAdvertising site.

First I would like to say that PSAdvertising is the second surfing site from admin Jamie. In order to get more info about his first site PSTraffic please refer to my article here.

At first sight knowing all PSTraffic history and admin’s reputation online since January 2007 the site seems to be very appealing for immediate upgrading but when you start to look into the details you realize that nothing comes so easy. The site has very many pitfalls in itself and without using a good strategy you’re doomed to fail in your efforts to earn some money. On the main page of PSAdvertising you can see advertising’s details which in general are specific features of this program. Let’s analyze it one by one and emphasize their advantages and disadvantages in order to make up the right strategy for investing.

1) “Payment Processors accepted: e-Gold, AlertPay, SolidTrustPay and VGB“. As we can see there are 3 most popular payment processors accepted for upgrading purposes which is good in my opinion because this can attract many investors with their different preferences.

2) “3% to 8% ROA for viewing paid advertisements. 120% total ROA“. It means that it will take from 15 to 40 days for your upgrade unit to expire (at least inexperienced members will think so unless they don’t pay attention to the pitfall I will tell you about later). Is it good or bad? It depends on whether you consider 120% for a month a decent profit for yourself and worth risking. Though I would not consider it very high risk program because of the low ROA and established admin’s reputation. Of course daily ROA will depend on the level of daily purchases so it fluctuates and it really depends on how members support the program by upgrading on a regular basis.

3) “Request cashout daily with no minimum (Payout processed Monday-Friday. 50/50 rule in effect.)” This is the main point which can provide the program with stability for the long haul. But you need to work out your own strategy by conforming to that rule.

4) “8% referral commissions“. Comparing to 3% in PSTraffic I consider 8% is a very attractive rate which will certainly make members to promote this program heavily. So I think the growth will be high in the early stages of program’s life.

5) “Must view 10 sites to earn daily ROA(return on advertisement)“. This is a standard feature similar to that in PSTraffic so I would not pay much attention to that. Just don’t forget to surf and everything will be alright.

6) “Minimum ad purchase is $25, maximum $10,000“. This is what you MUST consider before upgrading here and this is the real pitfall I mentioned earlier. With such a high minimum it really MATTERS how much you intend to upgrade. It really has little or no sense to upgrade with 100$, but if you’re going to be in with 1000$ or more it will pay you off. Let’s compare these two options and we will find out which of them makes sense. For your convenience I will take daily profit equal 5%. When you go in with 100$ only you will break even (with 5% daily) only on the 42nd day and will be in profit long after that, probably only after three months. Of course PSAdvertising can live for three months but it’s not worth it. The level of risk is too high in my opinion.
The same example but with 1000$ initial upgrade looks more promising. And here I will give you some calculations to prove it. I remind that all calculations made for 5% daily ROA, remember that it can be more or less on any given day.
1st day – 1000$ (initial upgrade) + 50$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout)
2nd day – 1025$ (upgrade) + 51.25$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 1.25$ left on the balance)
3rd day – 1050$ (upgrade) + 52.5$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 3.75$ left on the balance)
4th day – 1075$ (upgrade) + 53.75$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 7.50$ left on the balance)
5th day – 1100$ (upgrade) + 55$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 12.50$ left on the balance)
6th day – 1125$ (upgrade) + 56.25$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 18.75$ left on the balance)
7th day – 1150$ (upgrade) + 57.5$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 26.25$ left on the balance)
8th day – 1175$ (upgrade) + 58.75$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 35$ left on the balance)

13th day – 1325$ (upgrade) + 66.25$ (upgrade 50$ in order to receive your 100$ cashout, 1.25$ left on the balance)
14th day – 1375$ (upgrade) + 68.75$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 20$ left on the balance)
15th day – 1400$ (upgrade) + 70$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 40$ left on the balance)
16th day – 1425$ (upgrade) + 71.25$ (upgrade 50$ in order to receive your 100$ cashout, 11.25$ left on the balance)
17th day – 1475$ (upgrade) + 73.75$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 35$ left on the balance)
18th day – 1500$ (upgrade) + 75$ (upgrade 50$ in order to receive your 100$ cashout, 10$ left on the balance)
19th day – 1550$ (upgrade) + 77.50$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 37.50$ left on the balance)
20th day – 1575$ (upgrade) + 78.75$ (upgrade 50$ in order to receive your 100$ cashout, 16.25$ left on the balance)
21st day – 1625$ (upgrade) + 81.25$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 47.50$ left on the balance)
22nd day – 1650$ (upgrade) + 82.50$ (upgrade 50$ in order to receive your 100$ cashout, 16.25$ left on the balance)
23rd day – 1700$ (upgrade) + 85$ (upgrade 50$ in order to receive your 100$ cashout, 1.25$ left on the balance)
24th day – 1750$ (upgrade) + 87.50$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 38.75$ left on the balance)
25th day – 1000$ original upgrade expired (reached 120% maximum) so 775$ (upgrade) + 38.75$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 27.50$ left on the balance)
26th day – 25$ upgrade expired (reached 120% maximum) so 775$ (upgrade) + 38.75$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 16.25$ left on the balance)
27th day – 25$ upgrade expired (reached 120% maximum) so 775$ (upgrade) + 38.75$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 5$ left on the balance)
28th day – 25$ upgrade expired (reached 120% maximum) so 775$ (upgrade) + 38.75$ (43.75$ left on the balance)
29th day – 25$ upgrade expired (reached 120% maximum) so 750$ (upgrade) + 37.50$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 31.25$ left on the balance)
30th day – 25$ upgrade expired (reached 120% maximum) so 750$ (upgrade) + 37.50$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 18.75$ left on the balance)
31st day – 25$ upgrade expired (reached 120% maximum) so 750$ (upgrade) + 37.50$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 6.25$ left on the balance)
32nd day – 25$ upgrade expired (reached 120% maximum) so 750$ (upgrade) + 37.50$ (43.75$ left on the balance)
33rd day – 25$ upgrade expired (reached 120% maximum) so 725$ (upgrade) + 36.25$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 30$ left on the balance)
34th day – 50$ upgrade expired (reached 120% maximum) so 700$ (upgrade) + 35$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 15$ left on the balance)
Total: upgraded 1950$, withdrawn 1950$ – break-even
35th day – 25$ upgrade expired (reached 120% maximum) so 700$ (upgrade) + 35$ (upgrade 25$ in order to receive your 50$ cashout, 0$ left on the balance)
Total: upgraded 1975$, withdrawn 2000$ – profit
So by upgrading 1000$ you will be in profit after 35 days (the term is approximate and depends on daily fluctuating ROA). Notice that according to FAQ members who upgrade with at least 50% of their cash balance pay 2% fee on every withdrawal.

7) “NO compounding allowed“. No comments as any compounding can kill such type of program pretty fast.

8 ) “Pro members may submit up to 3 sites in rotation“. This feature can have some interest among advertisers and therefore also help to attract more money in upgrades.

9) “Each $25 upgrade will purchase 200 advertising credits“. Of course advertising credits are important for you if you have the intention to advertise your site but you can also get them for free just by surfing other members’ sites (0.5 credit for every view).

10) “Members who do not surf at least once every 14 days will be deleted“. Don’t forget to surf at least once in two weeks or your account will be deleted.

My conclusion: after much consideration I decided not to upgrade with 100$ as I intended to do initially. It’s really not worth it in my opinion (I will still monitor it as I’m in Jamie’s other program). But if you can spend 1000$ or more I think PSAdvertising will be the right choice for you mostly because of admin’s reputation and very well-thought out reupgrading model.
