I personally like survey sites the best as they are the least risk and pretty good paying if you actually qualify for the surveys. What about you, what is your favorite "get paid to" program, and why? Writing sites are fun also, but it requires a bit more effort and time-invested. (If you're a professional writer the earnings can be quite luxurious, though.)

I try a couple of survey sites many but they all didn't work for me. They either said I don't fit for this survey and then end it or some crap it's annoying so I gave up on that. Mylot is the only site that ever really paid me though haha.. but yeah .. I try sites now and then and see how far I get with them. I enjoy sharing my opinion and knowledge with people all the time so yeah I don;t think it's much of a effort. =]

What survey sites do you use if you don't mind me asking? I've noticed that you post a lot on these topics so I figure you know a lot about it. I'm new to this whole thing. Do you get referrals? Thanks in advance for the info.

I would say my two favorite and most reliable are that of SurveySpot and GlobalTestMarket.(I know a bunch more if you want to hear them, but my experience with them hasn't been as great as the two mentioned above.) The earning is great however it takes a long time to add up. With surveyspot for example i spent roughly at most two hours worth of my time taking surveys and I got $35 after a long wait. Thing is, those "two hours" of my time were spread out through a few months to earn. So while I felt I was getting paid out fantastically for my effort, it is time-consuming in the sense that you don't get paid like an hourly rate like you would in a job. You have to take a ten minute survey here, a ten minute survey there, etc. It's my favorite topic, It's fun to help people out, Referrals help here and there and I do get them once in a while but they don't help out much, really. Lately I kind of stopped my focus on that and i'm working on doing research into where referrals matter a lot more, affiliate marketing. For additional help feel free to check out the PM I sent ya'. I'll help you out the best I can.

I am no longer interested in other programs aside from mylot. I joined one which was quite good but when I came close to payout, it suddenly would not let me in. Strange.

Well there are much better higher-paying places then Mylot. I personally stick around here because of the fun community, though.
