My internet earnings this year!

I'm pretty new to trying to earn on the internet but I think I've done pretty well for my first full year. I've made about $8.50 a day doing surveys, playing games for gift cards, and trying out actual products during this past year. I figure I spend about 3 hours a day doing this. That's not bad! Plus, I make about $200 a month writing articles. That's a little more time intensive, taking up about 5 hours a day. That's $2 an hour but $2 more than I would've made watching Youtube or playing games. So I'm making about $455 a month doing surveys, trying products and writing articles for the net. Not a fortune, but it surely helps with the bills, especially since I don't have a job! How about you? How much did you make on the internet last year? Are you satisfied or are you looking for more lucrative methods?

I was doing OK with my net earnings during the first part of last year. I wasn't earning allot, but I had a steady amount coming in which added up over time. Then in the summer I moved and I still don't have a home internet connection set up. Anyone with a toddler will tell you how hard it is to use a public internet facility with a little one in tow, so I've had to let everything slide. I still keep my hand in with the odd survey which I qualify for, the odd myLot discussion or one of a few other bits and bobs, but I can't actually remember the last time I got paid.

Oh, I've been there--two toddlers less than a year apart tearing through the library! No computers when they were small but I can just imagine how difficult it is for you! Hope you get a connection soon! When you do, ask me and I'll send you my survey site lists if you have time to make a little cash. Don't ever change your avatar, I love looking at the child-it brings back such great memories of my own precious children!

It's not marketing, it's doing surveys that pay money and a couple of other programs. If you'd like the list of links, make a friend request and I'll be happy to share them with you.

MyLot is the only place I earn that has a minimum payout. I think if a place has a minimum payout (besides this place) they are a bit suspect and may not be entirely honest. They want your labor but don't want to pay you. Look up "paid surveys" and sign up for several, as I did. Don't bother with sites that want a membership fee, those sites are thieves. Surveys are great ways to make money and earn gift cards. Oh, and don't bother with Greenfield surveys, they are a ripoff and I only made $16 with them last year although I did about a hundred surveys!

What a good earning you have been earning. I am so much unluck in this field or not skilled. First I am unlucky because before last week of last November I have had some good sites just like mylot and some other pay per post forum and got paid from one $15 as real money till now. But before that I am trying for 14 months but never have a single buck as real money. I have tried hundreds of PTX and survey site but never a paid one. Most of the free surveys are not available in my area (country-Bangladesh). Then I am not skilled because I didn't know how to manage e-business and how promote products. Now I am learning how promote products and how manages e-marketing an business so I am satified now with online earning.

I did not make enough that I have to claim taxes, but next year I am sure I will. If everything keeps going the way it has been.

One review isn't worth $200!!! IT's a alot of reviews. I'll send you all my links. It's late, I'm ready to go to bed so please PM me your request where I'll see it in the morning or afternoon. I'm happy to provide the links, and most of them don't profit me at all!

I started less than a year ago and I managed to earn just over $1000 last year, mainly from writing, blogging, posting and searching. I've almost reached payout at two British survey sites where I regularly take part. This year my earnings will be higher. I know more about writing for the internet and how to market my work. I have a good many articles online earning daily revenue, two paying blogs and some new ideas to try. So far I've made most money from articles I sold with exclusive rights, and this year I will be getting additional upfront payments for all my new articles. I'm really excited about how much money I can make. I already have a monthly income from the internet, and I intend to build it up, so that in future I may be making around $1000 every month!

That's wonderful!! I've tried Triond and a couple of others but apparently I haven't a clue what people want to read because my articles earn no more than pennies! I guess with my writing, I've made over $1000 this year but now that I've lost my job I hope to make about half that each month, it would certainly help! Any pointers on articles that earn daily revenue?

Thanks! I hope you're enjoying being here on myLot. You can make a nice little monthly amount if you post a lot--more if you include your own photos in your discussions!

I am definitely looking to make money online. I haven't really made anything yet, because I don't know where to start. Almost everything I have been finding are companies that ask you to pay them for their products first. Which, even if that wasn't an outrageous request, I wouldn't be able to pay them because my husband and I don't have any extra money. I stay home with our daughter so we don't have to pay for day-care and I would like to find something at home (online or not) to do for work to supplement our income. It's good to hear about people who are truly able to find good ways to make money online.

I've made a friend request to you so that I can send you my list of sites--I don't make anything for your joining, but I think you'll be pleased with them. Also, you can write articles for the guy I work for, I'll send you his address, too. I made a couple hundred dollars writing last month!

this is a nice, steady income for you. I've only been making about 50 cents a day. I seem to be having trouble getting motivated to start.

You can make much more than that! Make a friend request and I'll send you my list of survey sites. And if you'd like to try your hand at writing articles, I'll also send you the email of the guy I write for--I make a lot of money doing that, I didn't include that when I bragged about my earnings.

Good for you and keep it up, hope you will get a lucky year. Well I am trying to have some extra income from the net but I still din't saw a penny, now I am trying with my lot. for me is diffcult staying 5 whole hours on the net, first because I have a toddler and every time she sees me on the computer she tries always to distract me, as she is doind now :). However It sure a good help for paying bills, I wish I have your ability to get that money. If you have a good site, which is really good to work online please send it to me, thanks.

Another person from Malta!! Wow, that's 3 of you that I know of here. I made a friend request and once you approve it I will send you my list of survey sites that I make money from. They aren't referral links, unfortunately, I don't get credit for referring people except from one of them so I just don't bother.

I'm happy with my earnings here. Be sure to make your replies at least 3 lines and you will get credit for it. Start discussions of quality, not just "what's your favorite color?". A good way to start a discussion that gets lots of replies is to tell something interesting about your country or culture and ask for others to share theirs, or something else that is interesting. I hope you make good money here and have fun doing it!

To tell you the truth I am pretty satisfied with myLot right now. Last year in 2008 I ventured into some gpt sites and found that I was wasting my time. I had some problems with infections in my computer. I have only found myLot to be in my best interest and I am pretty happy with how I made out last year here where earnings were concerned.
