I'm not making enough money!!!

United States
May 6, 2007 7:00pm CST
I thought when i got to mylot that I would be able to at least fill my gas tank up. I'm not making money like I thought I would be. Am I doing something wrong here? Is there other methods for making better money online? I love mylot and don't want to leave but I would prefer to also have something on the side. Any suggestions?

You have only 73 replies...how you can expect a lot of money? You must be active.And consistently active. Start new discussions and reply to the others. Upload pics.Try your posts to be inteligent and your discussions to be interesting for more people. Allways rate the others- this helps. Just an example: i upload pics, have arround 80+ posts daily and my daily earnings are arround a dollar. Just be patient and consistent.

Ok a dollar a day ends up giving me about 30 a month. Sounds better than what I've made so far.

First, set a goal for how much you want to make every month. Once you have an idea of how much you want to make, figure out how many posts you need to make a day to reach that goal. I try to do at least twenty-five posts a day, but have done as much as a hundred a day. Try to make each post at least five lines in length because the more descriptive you are, the more your post is worth. Also, if you download photos to your discussions or responses, then you can make more money. If you want to make more money on the side, you can try selling on ebay, but check out www.wahm.com for other work-at-home ideas.

Thank you, I appreciate the advice. I didn't know what causes my earnings to go up. I'll post a little more and see what happens.

One thing that I know helps me earn more money is to post longer replies and longer discussions. It seems, the more well thought out my posts are, the more money I'll make a day. I can post a few replies that are rather long, and earn about 50 cents for that day. I can do 100 posts a day, and they can be short, not well thought out and have pretty sucky spelling, grammar and punctuation, and I'll make next to nothing. So my suggestion is, to make nice long posts. Short posts are fine, they'll add up too, but the longer they are, you'll fare better in the end. Also, don't forget you can upload pictures to discussions too. Pictures will earn you a few extra cents a day. And last but not least, referrals. Get about 2 or 3 really great people that are really active daily and can earn you a few extra cents a day. Those will certainly help add to your income.

Yeah that makes cents (sense). I'll try to post more detailed posts and make sure they're quality.

Referrals would probably be the key to making money like on pretty much any online money making programs. Without that about the highest you might end up making a month I'd say would lie on perhaps 50 dollars or so? Don't know if any went above that in a month or not, but you would probably have to be quite active.

50 dollars a month wouldn't be bad. At least its something to add towards a bill. I'll start looking into to getting more referrals.

I am also new to MyLot, and I was wondering if I could make money by establishing a profile or not?

If you want to take the approach of joining other GET PAID sites and promoting them along with your referal link in mylot, I strongly suggest you start a blog. On this blog you can promote your websites. If you use this idea I also suggest you use the programs yourself as to get a good understanding of what your promoting. I have a list of credible websites in my blog N a system for new people like yourself if your interested go to blog http://uofmrebel.blogspot.com !!

You are right, mylot is a fun place where you get a bit of money on top of the fun of discussions. No, you can`t fill up your tank with it. If most mylot users had found a way to earn big on the net, they would not post on mylot. Most opportunities on the net are plain scams. They rip you and do not pay. Easy it gets with whatever you do on the net with referrals whom you do make money on. They work as your little slaves. But the hard part is to find referrals. The only way is to be persistent and find referrals. But, by the time you have referrals, the site that pays you is out of business. This is a vicious circle and that is why people post on mylot.

No, you are not doing here in myLot. It's just that mylot is not something you will get to earn a lot of money. Yes, you will be paid but only with a minimum amount. I think mylot is more of a place where you can really have fun and learn a lot of things. If you really like to have some money, then try to find a work because it's really hard to make money online. Most of the sites are just scam.

Yes, so just work hard in your job and don't quit. Being jobless is difficult. So be patient enough to work hard.

Well you've been a member here for 2 weeks and only have a rating of (73). That's not really very active. You earn here by posting and responding to others. When you post a response or the first comment in a discsussion other then your own you get a point. If you post a discussion and once someone responds to it you get a point. Now you can make other comments and still earn money but it won't change your points any. The best way to earn on here is to be very active. To post more like 50 posts in a day instead of in a week. For more tips if you want you can check out my site: http://emeraldislesweb.info There is a tip page there on what different things here at mylot mean and how to maximize your earnings.

Yeah its hard when you work everyday but I'm going to work at it and see how far it takes me. Either way I love mylot too much to leave.

Is mylot the only thing you do? That's why I'm here also, to get gas money. And based on your license plate and your display name you live in the BiG Apple, which means I'm sure you are paying more for gas than I am. What other sites do you do? I do a few, but mylot and clixsense are 2 of my favorites and I use them for gas money and diapers. I started clixsense in the middle of their pay cycle, but I got a check in the mail yesterday, I'm excited about it. I can't wait to see how much my next check is when I've been on it for the entire pay cycle. Just keep referring, posting, and responding here in mylot and you will do fine. Also, don't forget about posting pictures. The whole picture thing was one of my flaws when I first started, then once I started that I closer to payout than I could believe. Another thing, how often are you on here a day? And when on here, how long do you stay on? How many posts do you start? How many do you respond too? Also, I see your number is 73, which means that you haven't been on for a long time, or you don't post much. Well, it wasn't that long ago, that I had that number, and once I kicked it up a notch, I started making more and getting closer to payout. Don't give up just yet, trust me, all of these people aren't here on mylot because it doesn't work, or isn't worth it, WE'RE HERE, because it does work, it is worth it, and it's fun.

Well as you can see I'm not responding to nearly as many posts as I should be. I've started a few discussions but not a lot. I'm going to spend all day today(my day off of work) to try and utilize the system mylot has going. Tomorrow morning when I look at my earnings hopefully I'm surprised.

Hello HarlemsFlyest, You know that is a bit funny what you said because I used my mylot earnings to fill up my gas tank today. and it was handy. but here at my Lot, you'll only make a few cents and what have you to get up to the $10 payout and folks around here LOVE getting it. if you start a discussion, as well as reply to the various questions, and post photos, you can make a nice amount of money a day. Some push for a dollar a day; I am happy with so much per day myself as long as I can get my payout. However, if you really want to make some $$, there are folks on here who can point you to sites that can help you make the dough if you will. Check them out.

Nobody is making enough. That's just the way it is. You are not gonna get rich at myLot. Be thankful if you can pay for a burger or your mobile phone bill.

reality checks. the lesser you post and give replies to discussions the lesser you earn, but if you do otherwise i guess it would be enough to fill up your gas tank. 'though i admit that i often get low earnings because my mind doesn't work well sometimes.

Try this simple calculation: every response is valued around $ 0,01. Every response at your discussions, the same. For earning $10 a month you need to have around 1,000 posts (received/done) monthly... It is a simply calculation but with 76 posts it is normal you have earned "nothing"!... happy work!

I just joined in early april, and so far I have $39.45 in my mylot account. $34 and change is supposed to be deposited in my paypal account May 15th and the rest is for the June 15th payout. Not too bad. I also planned on doing better as I had a few days of making 3-4 dollars, but then I get lazy, or forget to post and have had some bad days. My goal is to at least double that for June 15th, which means I need to get up to $60 or so by May 30th. I hope I can do it! I like setting my goals high so I have something to aim for. I have a couple of referrals but don't get too much from them. Sometimes uploading pictures helps, I think you can do 25 a day and get about 2 cents a picture or so. Hope this helps and good luck! Dont give up on mylot. I think it's good here, it just takes some time to earn the money!

that is true, you have to get in there and find other people to sign up under you. that is the best way to make more money online. find some programs that you really like, and start promoting them. if you can get 10 to 20 people under you in each program then you should be on your way to bringing in some cash. that is what i have done and i am very happy with my online earnings. of course, i want to make even more, but i am happy so far

Think of mylot as a plant. When you plant a seed, you need to water it and give it enough sunlight. It will develop a stem with a couple of seeds after a few days, it will take a few weeks until it develop to a bigger plant and years until it becomes a tree. The leaves are your earnings, in the beginning of your stay here in mylot you only earn a little, but with hard work and strategy in getting referrals your earnings will eventually grow. Mylot is not a money making machine, it is not a regular job that will pay you the same amount every payday, your money will depend on how you work by participating in discussions and referring people. I hope I helped.

Type faster. Oh, but type substantially. Yes, I was confused the first time as well. For one thing, you can't even edit posts, which to me seems beyond bizarre, like they just totally forgot something. Go figure. Still, myLot's fun to use, even if it is my only source of income. I just wish it was enough to get my unsatisfactory family off my back.
