Is it REALLY possible to earn money online?

May 4, 2008 2:17am CST
I mean earning money for a living, not pocket money as in paid to click sites. For me (I dun know about others) at least, the lay person in this area, making some pocket money amounting to $1 to $2 is posible daily but how about the money to pay your expenses? Most will answer select a niche, set up a website, add in some adsense posting etc. This info is so general as though I didn't get any help at all. What do you say?

Welcome to mylot. I have become member of this site for a month. Earn money online is very difficult for me to earn. Maybe because my country doesn't have this kind. I'm trying to get used to this kind. Nice to meet you!

Yup! I agree with u.It is not easy.Anything to do with money is always not easy.U use to hear if u can do somethings u like,then making money is easy. It does sounds logic 'cos u put so much time in it and enjoying doing it.In the long run,u will be better than most people.That's why the saying say so. Finally, keep in touch. Do let me know if u have stumble upon anything more profitable. I wish u all the success

Well, if u have surfing and facing the pc is your passion, you will enjoy it.I am not aiming to be rich.How well is it if you can combine your passion and earning a living together? It is a dream comes true. I trust you must love your job.By the way,what are you doing? Do you really enjoy it?If not,what actually is your life enjoyment?

Well i don't think earning for your living is possible in internet if you are residing in US or any area near to that. Online earning for living is possible for most of the US only and there are very less countries from where you can earn sufficiently online. You can try survey sites to improve your earning if you need some of the links then mail me.

Reading ur statements, I cannot get what u means. So is it possible or not? Never mind.I just want to find method to increase my earning. Abit here, a bit there,it does add up.

I was just intending to say that maximum earning opportunity is available in US only and if you are not residing in US then you can opt for many other things such as survey site. I had sent you the link of survey site, so check it and i wish you should improve your earning in the net.

U hear of the saying to kill two birds with one stone? Wouldn't it be wonderful to achieve passions and money? Why do we have to choose? I believe there is always a way.u only need to keep looking and trying. It 's fine if some of u just surf for fun but 4 me, I would like to incorporate it to earning as well. I just hoping my dreams can become reality even though I think it is not easy.

Have u hear of the phrase to kill 2 birds with one stone? Well,why not combining ur passion and earning money..it will be a great benefit to u.One factor motivates the other. U 'll be much happier I believe this can finally turn out to be true if u put a lot of hardworks and some guidance from our fellow members especially when u r down.

I believe we can if e try hard and long enough.It is a hard journey uphill.Quick ! Get me some rope and don't look down!That is the similiarities with earn money online.Look in front and think there is no turning back.It is the only way to go.We just have to keep on searching.That's applies to me as well. Recently I discover that beside mylotting,I can go for writng review which prove a little bit more lucrative.

Yes you can, however you need to work sooo hard, joining over hundreds of sites. I only do it for pocket money, not for living. If you want to make money for living, get a job instead, it's much easier.

Nothing is easy in life especially when u venture into something new. But I totally agree with u the online competition is stiff. Get a job is easy but get the job u want is difficult. Why not integrate it ? But there is sure people who are successful in online business.Go to s.eriously.com to see 4 yourself. Just for fun and motivation

Every body wish that they make some serious money online.But they take as much time and money as they take for any other business we do off line. Due to serious competition on the net too sometimes the talent go unnoticed or not paid or under paid. That's my personal view point.

So u r being put off? I think as in anything whether offline or online and especially if u r new on it,it is definitely going to cost u time and money. Plus lots of lots of hardwork.many people give up halfway. Me? Still keep going with the support of all of u here....that's why also many people fail in here.Those establish player monopolise the whole thing.In this line,winners take all. Either u win big or lost fully.
