How to earn more? some tips on newbies and noobs in mylot
October 30, 2008 10:34am CST
Do you really know how mylot pays us? NO one really knows what is the logic behind mylot and how the payments are computed. I am only here for three months and I can say in away I already have a feel of mylot. In the course of three months I had learn how to increase my earnings. I also make new friends and new mommy too . My first few days was rubbish, just some one liner response and some cents to my account. I cam across a mylot discussion on how one can earn more and in a way tried the tips the user said. I was really glad that somehow my earnings increased.. now I really want this to share to all of you specially the new comers here in mylot. So you signed up here after some bugging from a friend (thinking that the only reason she tells you to do so is because of the referral system). you are wrong about that, I am sure another reason why your friend recommends you this site is because she or he too is having fun in here. Oh so you already sign up and thinks what now? well here are some few tips on what yopu can do first here in mylot. Don't be too excited on posting and earning, maybe you should post first a user picture, I can say that avatar helps a lot so people and friends can easily recognize you. Then you can start adding friends, you can skip adding interest as it will come on the way. Add first some friends, I read before that the more friends you have the more likely your discussion have a lot of response. and it is a nice way of having new friends. If you can add all the users,t hat would be really cool, if not you can start by adding at least 200, then turn the notifications of all your friends (I have 400 plus and almost all notification is on). This is helpful specially when you want to respond only, you can save a lot of time browsing for a topic to answer. When your friends notification is on, you can just browse, it is as easy as shopping for a discussion. Next start answering their discussion, get a feel on what is the topic that people responds and you can also learn from it, on what is no no in mylot. You can just answer and answer and you will earn, just make sure that your response is descriptive and long, not just one liners. make it 4 or more lines. Familiarity is the key here. Then you can now start your own, having friends and letting them now your presence by first answering their discussion is now your ally. Start now and when people responded to it, make a comment back, although in the guidelines it is not encourage here, but showing gratitude is not bad. and it could also help you, believe me. As it is when a friend make a discussion it appears on the tab friend's started, and you will notice that not all friend's discussion are shown on the first page, so if your discussion has a lot of activities, it will always appear on the first page under the tab friend's discussion. but never stop there, you can also add photos to your discussion. which you can made when you reached 500 and smileys when you reached 200. [i]I know I did not cover all and so I ask other members to also contribute. I hope in a way I have helped you guys.[/i] Cheers!

Hi pehpot, I don't believe you have missed very much and I hope a lot of new mylotters will read this discussion. I can tell that you enjoy being here and that is probably the key to it all. I come here every day but there are times when I don't make very much money but that's okay because I enjoy reading what others are saying even if I'm not commenting all the time. Great job. Blessing.

Hey buddy, well i am not a newbie here but then i think i am not too old also. so i kind of like what you have written here. Well i know what all you have written right now, i have come to know by the time i reached my 200th post. Been around on mylot way beyond than anything or anything like that. Well anyways thats how i have learnt. Well only and only if you would have taken out this discussion like more and 2 months back, i would have been asking for my 3rd payout but then now is going to be my first payout. Well what can i do about this? Nothing. But buddy. A great post !! You have written everything which any newbie would find it like a handy book here. Thats great buddy. Well anyways thanks for this great info for all of us and happy mylotting to you :)

haha.. YEah, very true and u have not missed out on anything ^_^ BUt one point, having many frenz does not mean they will respond to yuor discussion for sure.. I have about 200 over frenz, but only a handful of them are active.. Plus, not all of them will respond to my discussion when i start one ^_^ thus, it all depends on what kind of discussion is being started ^_^ hehe Other than that, all others are true, and that all responses have to be long, or at least 4 lines, b related to be topic, so that one can be sure to earn ^_^ ON top of that, keep commenting back and fro on a topic, can also earn us money, just that alot of members dunno about that.. hehe =D I guess, pehpot, u dun realise that too right?? hehe ^_^

How nice of you my dear to post good tips for the benefit of the newbies and also for other users who still need good tips to maximize their benefits here at myLot. I agree with you 100%. This post is really useful. Also if I may add, it is important that you don't think of the earnings only, and you are not supposed to be selfish here at myLot. When you forget about the money and just enjoy the whole game here...it's all the more that you will have fun and gain more benefits. Thanks for this post! Cheers!

What a nice thing you have done for all of us. I wish I had that advice when I first joined. I would not have had to stumble around asking silly questions for the first month. I don't know why they don't give us some more help when we first start. Thank you

that was a lenghty one. and very informative too. I have learned some and I would try to follow some too, as of now I only answer to discussions and not yet starting one of my own for a long time (the last was last week I think ) and not all of them have a number of response I can boast. Thanks for sharing it us.

errmm..newbie here i must say you have indeed gained a grasp on how noobs (like me) can earn and have fun here. okay, so from your list, what i haven't done (but is trying to do now) is answer other people's discussions. you know from the beginning that i am a discussion starter, and i think more than a half of my post count is attributed to discussions i started. i think i have seen the myLot light, thanks to you . kidding aside, good tips. i wish i could give tips too. hehehe. unfortunately, i don't know any. so there. haha!
