Do your mylot referrals help in reaching payout? Are they active?

hello mylotters! i'm sure you all know that mylot has a referral program. it is stated that you earn 25% of the earnings that your referrals get here in mylot. this sounds like a very good deal! but the usual problem is finding referrals that are active here. in my case, i have a number of referrals and most of them are real life friends. however, only 2 have been active so far and recently only 1 is active. their additional earnings do help a little. every penny counts, as they say. however, it would have been better to see all of them active as they will really help reach payout faster. that's not possible in my case though. what about you? how many referrals do you have here? are they all active? do they help you reach payout every month?

Hi there! I only have one referral and she's a family member. During her first days she was active but not that much until she has gone totally inactive hehe.. But I don't mind at all. I can earn for myself here. In fact, been earning for myself for a year now. It's also not because of additional earnings that I invited her to join. She is a good writer and I want her to share her ideas here in on the site. Her reasons of being inactive is because she has a real job and so it's understandable. It's hard to get referrals here in mylot. Still a lot of people have doubts on the site and sometimes, your referrals gets disappointed on the slow earnings here. I think that's the main reason why most referrals becomes inactive after sometime. Ciao!

i see. well, i'm glad to hear that you are earning for yourself here. i'm sure your referral would have been of great help but i'm sorry to hear that she's not so active nowadays. maybe you could convince her to just visit mylot once in a while? well, anyway, i'm sure having referrals here would have been of great help but we can still pretty much do things by ourselves, right? happy mylotting!

Oh yes, certainly! We can earn in mylot by ourselves. Besides, it's more satisfactory if you know you did all the hard work.

I have a couple of referrals also. Two of which are active. They have helped so far. This month I believe they have earned me like $1 so I wont complain. I never push to hard over payout. If I reach it then great if not it will just be bigger next month.

i'm glad you have a laid back view on things. i think it's good because if we push ourselves too hard here, we'll just end up frustrated. in my case i don't push myself too hard too. i'm just glad that mylot pays us what we usually do free on other forums. why not respond to forums here and get paid, right? in any case, my goal is just to reach payout every month. i think it's very attainable. i won't get rich but at least i have extra income.

Unfortunately all my referrals are not active. Not sure what their reason, perhaps they are just not into it or they can't relate or maybe they're intimidated. Anyway i really hope one or two of them will get active so it will help me with my earnings but i am not really expecting. If they do i will be really thankful and if they not i am still thankful at least they have tried. Have a nice day!

I have three. And I think all three have stopped. So, perhaps I should not even try to find any new ones. How much did I get from them so far? 4 cents. Like yippy yeah. ;p

my first account (canceled) had too many referrals at that time. but unfortunately none of them were active. they were before but they continue to slide down and become impatient with mylot. it's like a pile of inactive referrals. am glad i don't have referrals now because i feel irritated if that person is not active.

I can't depend on my referrals as they are not active at all. I have four referrals here, but they don't post here. Perhaps they are not interested in this kind of earning or they think it wastes the time. I love China

i have about 8 referrals from last year. only one of them got active in her first month of being a member and already stopped now. most of them just joined and gone. luckily, this month alone, i've got 6 new referrals. three of them are my co-workers. good thing there, is they have motivation in myself, they have seen how i work here. and not only that, they can see how the payment goes as i can let them see my account to prove that i am actually earning here. so far, "the three marias" as i call them, had given me at least a dollar additional earnings. if feels great to reach payout, faster with their help...

i only have few but i guess i only have one active friend. thanks to her time. i told her about the site because i know she likes responding to online polls and she's into blogging stuff so she got addicted right away. my sister is one of my referrals here but she's into something else as of this moment -- facebook facebook facebook haaaay..

Im pretty lucky as I have 5 referrals and 3 of them are active and it really does help with the payout. Although I feel guilty at times that I cant be on as much as one of them is although I still make more myself when I can find time to post. I still dont reach payout every month thou, maybe sometime I will get that! lol

i have gotten myself many referrals here, but not all of them are active or if they are, they aren't making discussions or posting responses. when a referral make tasks here, you dont get anything from it. i found out i can only earn from my ref if they participate in discussions. so far from the first day of this month till today, i got some 50 cents from my refs... not bad

hi tomjoad, regarding referrals,only one is active under me,so my earning is not increasing quickly...have a nice day

I have a few referrals which generally make a small amount on most days and occassionaly I get a good day where one or two of them have been very active. But never mind it is money for doing nothing and if it means that over a few months I manage to reach payout quicker than just under my own steam you can't really complain. Well I suppose I could as I would love them to be more active but never mind, lol.

I literally begged some users on another site that I am a member of,to join mylot.Well three did join but they are all INACTIVE.The main reason being jealousy that I would earn because of their participation.And also because they are dumb people who are too lazy to participate and earn.They do not see any point in it.Since this bitter experience I have stopped trying to convince anyone to sign up here.What a waste of time!I am now content to earn on my own.I do few tasks.May be 1% of my earnings is from tasks.The rest is through posts only.I love interacting and I am here to stay!Happy posting.
