How do you do it?

I am reaching out to anybody that can help... looking for a way to make some extra money. I have been surfing the web and find all sorts of "paid surveys" and "work from home" sites that just seem bogus. It's hard to be a student, work part time and pay off debt. Anybody find something out there that is legit (and pays more than 10 dollars?)

yes, I found a new social networking site just 6 weeks ago.(free to join) And I have made $60 in that time and it grows exponentially every week. they pay members by referrals. $4 for your referrals, $3 for your referral's referrals, and $2 for 3rd level. you will also earn residual income as your downline starts spending their earnings off their debit card. (we are paid every 2 weeks by direct deposit to a preloadable debit card you can use anywhere- you can also transfer your paypal funds/earnings to it) It's easy to get referrals- it just takes a little persistence at first- once you get the ball rolling - your referrals start bringing in referrals ie. money you make in your sleep.. lol If you are interested in this I have a link on my profile page. If you are at all creative or take a lot of cool pics. you can check out Zazzle- there you can upload photos and create stuff (lots of stuff) with them- when they are purchased you earn a commission. (I have made $165 there so far this year) and it is fun!

Just be patient. I'm having a similar condition with you. Maybe you should try bux.to.

Here's something for you to look at. www.dropshipland.com you can resell their products and hopefully make an income. They are an established British company and I would also advise you to check out the website www.ripoffreport.com Before joining anything, make sure the site in question has not had any bad reviews on ripoffreport. Goodluck. andrew

Hi, basically they buy products in bulk and you can have your very own website and sell their products on your website. The main thing is though, you never see the products and there is no stockpiling of products within your home. Let's say you have your website for example and a potential customer places an order for one of the products on your site. You would then place the order yourself on the dropshipland site and the company would then send the product directly to your customer. You receive payment first obviously before placing their order on the dropshipland site. I know this may sound a little confusing at first but I think it's pretty straightforward. I think you have to do your research though when it comes to dropshipping as there are, as with anything, a few bogus dropshipping companies out there. I did research dropshipland prior to joining them and they are a legitimate business. You don't have to have your own website with them either. You can just sell there products on ebay if you wish. The whole point of the thing is, you make a little profit per every item sold. If you want a website of your own then of course this has to be paid for which includes the cost of the website, the hosting of the website and the domain name. Otherwise, just sell on ebay and this will only cost you the listing fee, about 10p normally and a final selling charge, a very small percentage, if the product sells. Goodluck with whatever you decide to do though. Andrew

I know what you mean. I was in the same boat. I did find a good data entry job that pays fairly well. You don't get rich but you can make around $500 without it costing you anything but some time. If you wanted to check it out, I would be happy to send you a link or something. I would post it here but I'm not sure if posting links are allowed on mylot.

I'm in the same boat as you! I've been searching the web to play games, take surveys, to earn money or prizes. I've been look for sites that aren't scams. For about a week I've been on www.winster.com. It's a site where you can play games,( play slot social!!) and win prizes. At anytime you can pick your prize you are working towards, there are gift cards to places you can win. I highly suggest you should check it out.http://www.winster.com/index.html

I've used associatedcontent.com, eHow.com, squidoo.com, but those all take time to build up to earn real money. I've heard of people making money with surveys and stuff but to me it's so much more time consuming. I guess that's just me. Hope you find something.
