What does GPT stand for anyway?
GPT programs are websites that will pay you for signing up with their advertisers. When you sign up and complete an offer, everybody wins. You, the consumer, get to try a service or product for a nominal cost or even for free. In addition you receive a cash incentive for doing so. The advertiser has the opportunity to introduce their service or product to a new potential customer, and the GPT program makes a small profit for bringing the parties together.
A GPT program does not require you to refer anyone to the program in order to make money. However most of them will pay you a percentage (usually 10%) of what your referral earns. Your referral still keeps 100% of what they earn; the "referral bonus" is just the GPT program's way of thanking you for bringing new customers to their advertisers.
*Freebie programs are very similar to GPT programs, with a few small differences. A freebie program usually requires you to sign up and complete 1 offer, then refer several friends to sign up under you and each complete one offer. When you have achieved the required amount of referrals you receive a cash payout, or a prize. Many people do freebie sites and receive free iPods, free laptops, free XBox gaming systems, free cameras, and more. You can learn more about freebie programs by following this link to Toys4free.
