I'm so bummed. I have been putting in unGodly hours on the computer, trying to come up with a way to make money online, but I'm just, like, computer retarded, or something. I can't get referrals to save my life. I know there is TONS of money to be made on the internet, but I can't get a single thing going that is worth my time. I just feel so STUPID sometimes!! I'm not really an idiot, but I sure feel like it in regards to this. I know you can make money doing GPT, and writing articles, and this, that, and the other thing, but I can't seem to REALLY get any money flowing. I was so sure I could get something going, you know? I don't want to give up, but I don't know what else to do...

I know exactly what you are talking about. I have a hard time getting referrals also. What do you need a referral for? We can do a swap if you would like. I have asked others about how they get referrals. It is basically the same way I try. I don't know what I am doing wrong either. We will make it though.

Hi Just2crazygirlz You are not doing anything wrong. It's just finding different ways of promoting your sites that will work for you

I think I am gonna start a different blog for each thing I am involved in. Then I will promote them all and link them all together. Think that would work? Sounds like a plan to me.

Hello Girljar I started a discussion yesterday "Are you looking to make more money with Mylot" There I let everyone know how to use their profile pages to gain referrals to other sites. Gaining referrals takes patience. Have you joined other socializing networks? This is another great way to gain referrals

Hello Girljar, Just put up your site on MyLot and whenever you respond to any question just tell others to view the site in your profile. I could get almost 15 referrals in just one program. There are some surf sites which also get referrals for me. Check out my site, I am not able to show you a get rich scheme but can make atleast $150 with those sites that I have in my site on my profile.

Hi girljar!... I don't think i can help you for that. Here's my little knowledge bout online accumulation of income, that can be change you way of living, if ever, there's nothing to loss you if you try. Just try it, and then if you think that nothing happen to you after you try then you can exit and look for another opportunity... thanks! http://www.mname25.com

I'm pretty bummed about the situation myself. Like you always hear of people saying on tv or talk shows how their business boomed from the internet or things like that, but I just have no idea how to get anything started on here. As I've mentioned a thousand times in posts, Mylot is really the only thing I've noticed that actually pays. But then I also sit here and wonder, is the hours I put into these posts really worth the ten cents a day I earn?

For me one of the hardest ways to make money is trying to get referals because I have to rely on someone else to make money. I don't like the idea of that. Do you have a blog that is more than 90days old???? I have just finally got accepted to Payperpost and already have $68 pending. My Blog doesn't have a very high page rank and I have had no problems making from $5-$20 per post. I find that blogging was the best way to make money. You rely on yourself to make the money rahter than other people. With a low ranked blog the minumim you will make daily is $15 so thats $450 a month. I have never seen anything else that will make this kind of money. You should check it out. If your blog is at least 90days old. Hugs.

Oh, hang in there. It has taken me many many months to get to where I am at in making money online. There are days I am absolutely sure I am a failure and days where I feel on top of the world. I think that is normal. Go to my website and blog again and read read read on referral's and such. You can do this I have faith in you! It took me months and months to ever get my first referral!!! I have flyers up all over our town for one GPT site and only one referral off of that set of flyers yet last time I did it, about 6 months ago, I got 15 referrals in an hour. Go figure. It all in the timing. As for the articles, we are on the same sites and sometimes you don't always get money up front but you do get page views so hang in there. If you send me a link I will subscribe to yours and read them too. Thats what friends are for! Send me a message anytime here or in my e-mail. You are doing great it just seems so hard sometimes. Last month I only cashed out on one GPT site but I made up for it in writing. The advantage is that in most of my GPT sits I will cash out this month and then some. Hang in there. I have one site that I can only get to cash out point once every 3 months! With time and effort you will build this bigger and stronger and better than ever! Hang in there! I have faith in you!
