The Learning Curve
Any time I undertake learning something new, there is always a learning curve. Sometimes the curve is so steep that I fall off it. Sometimes, the learning graph has a nice gentle curve that invites learning in a specific order. Most are somewhere in between.
There are essentially two ways to learn about a product or service. Take your gloves off, get your hands dirty, and do it is one way. This method is an effective teacher, but not necessarily the most cost effective way. The other way is to read about the mistakes and problems I am likely to encounter and try to avoid some of the pitfalls.
PTC Central is a free website dedicated to reviewing and rating PTCs. It’s real straight forward, it divides PTCs into several categories. Very dynamic and fluid site, the ratings and categories can change as the PTCs themselves make changes.
The Value of PTC
The PTC world is filled with scammers and failed dreams, PTC Central will show you precisely which sites are paying as they should, which sites are legit and which clearly are not. There is a section on sites to avoid, more to be wary of…
Sites at PTC Central are basically arranged by time in business. A site is considered new until it has been in business for over a year, at which time it is ‘probationary’. Only sites that have been doing business successfully and well for over two years are considered fully vested.
Only use Established Sites??
No, that is one of the great things at PTC Central. They spend a lot of effort to rate and review new PTCs. TimTechs Nerdbux. has been in business for just a month, and already has a review and recommendation at PTC Central. It’s a very favorable review, but says essentially that it is too new to completely be trusted, because corporate policy is ‘don’t trust a site under one year old completely’.
And In the End
PTC Central is a great tool that can seriously avoid some of the harder knocks on the learning curve. Check it out for yourself!
