Ok, I have been here for almost 2 yrs, I have 2 referrals, and they are not active at all. So are you getting any referrals, people just don't have the time. if you have gotten referrals that is a bouus for you as long as everyone is active you agree? I have a lot of friends here, would'nt that be nice if we could use all the friends that we except here for referrals. That would really be cool. So how many referrals do you have so far? Just curious. I even went to other websites, and advertised Mylot, and that is where I got my 2 referrals that are not active, any suggestions where I can get referrals? I thought about posting in the Library Laundry Mat. maybe a few Grocery Stores.

I do not even have one referral.When I asked my friend he shot back 'how many sites you are the referral for'? Well, that is where the things stand as of now. First let us become referrals for somebody. I already became a referral for 2 persons.Hope this would help .

That is a lot of referrals, and they are not active, that is a shame. How are you? I hope all is well!

Well. I have no referrals. Doesn't matter to me also. I'm too lazy to find more too. :P I'm fine with the way I am right now. It's all good.

I have two active referrals. One is my daughter that joined several months ago and another one I got from a friend that I met at Yuwie. I have several others one is my sister and another one is one that I met a pogo and they aren't active. The referral I got from yuwie joined about 5 months ago and wasn't active but I told her to check it out again, and she did and is really enjoying it now. I do have to agree having referrals does help push earnings up quicker.

Hi terri08, It is hard to get them, people just don't have the time, they say they will but when it comes down to it, It doesn't happen, or either they are just not tht active, like in my case. Thanks for your input.

Congratulations, you have two more than I have. It just doesn't seem to interest a lot of other people. What is wrong? Maybe your post will generate some great ideas. I hope so.

I never refer anyone, just because I don't like the referal things. And I never register any sites under others' referal.

I know what you mean about the referrals here. I have been here for a while also. I don't think its been 2 years yet but close. I have 8 referrals and none of them do anything. I guess they figured it was too much to make the money but their lost. I'm doing just fine here. Yes I would be doing better with them doing something but atlest I can say this is my hard earned money.

Zero, actually. I tell my friends but not by refrrals. I don't mind, as a matter of fact i don't consider this good to get refrrals from my friends. That's their efforts, then i get 1/4, that's not fair. Earning's not the only purpose here, there are lots of others~~ Enjoy

I have 9 referrals, but mostly the are not active. I got them through Apsense and getref.com. I will still keep trying to get more referrals, because in promoting myLot it also promotes other things, and if I get hits on myLot profile, maybe some will sign up to other programmes. I think it is a good way to do things. Obviously it is disappointing if people don't post actively after signing up, but then again, some eventually will be more active. It is not worth worrying about too much. Hope you are well Marcia, good to see you are still here and posting. Are you still working the Apsense? I have got several good leads for other programmes over there. Anyway, talk soon friend. Best wishes.

When I initially joined, I went all out trying to get some referals and, like you, was able to get 2, neither of whom have posted a single discussion or comment. It is strange to me that a person would sign up for something and then not at least try it for a few days to see if they like it or not. I don't even bother trying now, not worth the effort.

I come here for about a month,and I have two referrals,but both of them aren't active.I didn't get any referral earnings from them. I think there must be a possibility that when a new comer finds his posts also benefit their introducer,and raises their introducer referral earnings. they will register another account in mylot.so we always can't get an active referral here.

i don't think it si wise to rely on referrals to earn at mylot. imagine i have 11 referrals and not a single one of them is active...too bad. i got them by posting my referral codes in forums and encouraging people to join but alas i succeeded in sending invites but never earned from them.

I joined myLot in January 2007 and so far I got 7 referrals. Unfortunately, not one of them is active. My first level referrals I had to coach them how to post here and what sort of questions to ask. But they are not simply that enthused it. Anyway, I got a second level referral which unfortunately does not contribute to my earnings though she is very active. I really find it unfair. LOL!

Hi, Maria! I agree that getting referrals is tricky. The hard part isn't so much getting referrals as it is getting active referrals that will make you a profit. However, having active referrals is key to making more here on myLot, so it's a much for people who want to make more! I know exactly what you're talking about. The people I invite to join myLot are mostly family and friends. Only one has joined, and he's not active at all. It's frustrating, but don't give up. There are so many social networking sites that you could go through to get referrals. The difficult thing is that some people would say myLot isn't for them. I know many people who would love to read and respond to discussions; it's all a matter of getting them started and sticking with it until they're familiar with the site. If a referral is comfortable with using this site and enjoys it, they won't be able to stay away! A lot of people don't like trying something new like this. I'm certainly glad I gave it a shot, though! I don't think people should be intimidated by learning a new website. I think they should just try it and if they don't like it, they can stop anytime. Many people are probably a little too skeptical about the whole earning money thing that they don't even bother to try. I know I was a little skeptical at first, but as I said before, I'm so glad I got into this. I guess it's all about finding people who are interested in making money through participating in a wonderful site and then your follow-through to make sure they're comfortable here. Looks like you're doing a pretty good job earning points of your own, so you obviously know how this site works. Keep sharing it with your friends and people online. If you keep trying and don't give up, you're bound to succeed. Good luck, my friend, and great discussion!

the best way to get referrals is to be come a member of other sites like this. you need to be where people are who are looking for ways to make money. that is how i started building my mylot referral list. from being a member of other sites. I got a lot of my referrals from yuwie, cafemom, and other sites just like it.

girl please i am on here every day. you should have my post emailed to you and you will see that i am post questions and going all through the site answering questions. those are great places to get referrals. but if you are looking to build a real income then you have to really get in there and talk about what you are promoting to anyone that will listen. flyers, business cards, making money parties. get creative and the people will come

I have 3 referrals under me. But only two are active. I would earn about 0.02-0.06 cents a day from each. It depends actually. Sometimes they would not post anything, too. But either way it helps me a bit. I tried to look for referrals, too. I would ask my friends to join and some of my family members, but I guess you are right. Some just don't have the time.

is this is a good site for referring family and friends? or stangers from post from other sites? it would be interesting to see how many active referrals are friends rather than strangers.

It becomes harder to acquire referrals as the site expands because the easier targets have been used. Not only can it be frustrating trying to find referrals, it can be just as frustrating if they sign up and never bother to participate. I have a total of 54 referrals and a great number of them have never made a single post here. Only two of referrals are active, but they only make the odd post now and then so I am very lucky if I make more than a couple of cents per day from them.
