You might want to keep it a secret so that no one steals your ideas, but when you get your friends to join what do you tell them to get them to join myLot. I know some people would say I'm not interested in these fake make fast money schemes, but mylot is nothing like that as you get to chat to people and the money you make is barely enough to be considered making money... So how do you get your referals?

I find it very hard to get referrals to join anything so am interested on how other people manage it and also how you get them motivated when you have managed to get them to sign up. I have had one or two people sign up, not to mylot, and then they only log on once or twice and go away

Yes, I've had the same problem as well. Thank you for being a good referral. I've only have you and my daughter active here. Not much luck with other sites either.

I have not got any referrals here on mylot but I have on another social networking site but all are not active. They all signed up logged on once and then disappeared

Most of the time, I just tell my friends verbally. It's really time consuming but it makes them understand it clearly. At least they get the idea what the program is about. The second effective way is to convince my friend by using messenger chat. Usually I guide them step by step through the chat. The easiest way is to send bulk email to all my acquaintances. Through all the ways, I did have some referrals, but most of them are not active. So far I only have one active referral. Some other need me to follow-up with them, then only they resume their participations!

Most of my friends do not spend so much time on computers as well. Some of them do though, but I think they do not believe in internet income. A lot of them had been scammed or cheated and thus they thought it's just a fairy tale. Some other just take the earning for granted. The earning gained from Mylot simply just not attractive to them.

I guess if you don't have any referrals its quite hard and you just think its better to give up and get a normal job :) But I like it here cos its not just making money but you get to chat all day!! :)

that's a good plan... but I guess the difficult part is to make sure that they are active referrals... otherewise they aren't of much use :)

I have one referral who has never, ever been active. I tried getting some of my friends to join as referrals but they are all too busy to spend time here. I have given up worrying about getting referrals now.

I think I will give up on referrals too... Its so hard to get someone to join and be active and the amount of money you earn from them is barely enough to be called earnings... :)

I simply send my referral link to all my friends, It's for them to discover what myLot is all about. I also invited personally only those who are interested in blogging, offering an extra income is not my style 'coz I know there's a lot of SCAM in the internet world.

You are right, beacuse of all those scam websites people don't know who to trust anymore...

Hi, If we said to people that we can get money easily by joining mylot or other websites, I don't think we can get referrer easily. I usually told them that we can makes friends, views exchange, make a new discussion and show your beautiful picture. It interesting and you will love it. Besides we can see our money collection increasing everyday.

its true that you make friends and you don't really earn a living from mylot, but I guess if you hac more referrals it would be more interesting
