I have been doing a lot of activities online to earn extra income for quite a while now. It's not that easy though. Yeah, especially if getting referrals is a problem. I know that the more referrals I have for these online activities, the better. But it's not easy to invite people you know. I am surprised by how a lot of other people here on myLot endlessly share their experiences on how much they earn through their online activities. I am not just surprised, I am actually envious. How about you? Do you find it easy to earn money online?

It can be difficult especially with all the scams out there. You really have to know where to look to find the good sites. It wasn't until I came in here, tht I foiund other sites that pay as well. I don't make a lot, but money is money, and it all adds up in the end. I wish I could find something that will make me a lot of money, but in the meantime, I will just stay with the sites I am doing, as they do pay a little anyway. I looked for a very long time for ways to make money online, and I almost gave up, but then I found mylot, and started earning here, then I realized that there was hope for making money online. I have never regretted my decision to join mylot at all, as I have learned so much, and found the other sites I am doing, so it is all good. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

I just started looking into making money online. I just had my third baby and would like to stay home as long as possible. My husband makes enough to pay the bills but we would like some extra spending cash. I just happened to stumble across mylot and hope I can do something here. Not exactly sure how it all works but guess I will figure it out.

Hello Dolce vita, I think earning money online is quite hard. Now I am trying to stick to this web page and get to my first pay out. As I have my full time job and part time school i have just a little time to spend at compuer so I have decided to try this page and try to get from it as much as possible. I think it is the main rule in making money - you have to stick to one thing and try hard to get to your target!That I advise to you too - try hard !!!

Once I got into Zazzle, I found it was easy.. and it has been just been getting easier.. Also Pinecone Research surveys helped. :-) and I make a little with BigCrumbs and Youdata. Still looking for another reliable site... But haven't had much luck lately.

For me, its quite difficult. I spent almost 9months before i earn the $15 and yet can't be withdrawn. The money was deposited to moneybooker which is inactive now. AS of now i spent few hour in mylot due to busy schedule at work. I got few referrals too but they are all now inactive. So was it easy to earn online? Nah!

It is hard to earn money online especially if you have not really understood the real score about online business earnings. Second, harder if you have trouble in looking for referrals. Third, if the sites you have applied are possibly scam sites. However, despite of the vast competition. It really depends on the person if he is able to manage and explore things for the success of his earnings online.

I find it difficult although i just started at the end of 2009 never really took it serious until then. I find mylots to be the easiest but would really like to get into the blogging part of making alittle extra income. Ive heard it can be very difficult to earn this way but possible. I think with blogging its alot of learning what has worked for others and also having a topic that will get traffice along with being very time consuming. I have also got into the writing part of things with earning alittle on ehow. There are several other writing sites im planning on trying durning this next year. I wish you sucsess hope you find an avenue thats right for you.

The job itself is easy but as what you've said I am really having a hard time getting referrals. Well, I can still be considered as a newbie so I think time will give me the way.. ;-p

From your words, It sounds like your making money on Mylot. I m totally new to Mylot and just startup. My own experience on making money online is - It is Possible but not easy. the Interesting part of this subject is people who making money online is selling products on How to make money online. In short serious money is only on e-commerce.

I really don't find it easy at all when your just doing it by yourself. Having a network really makes things easier and I guess it applieas to any kind of venture when it comes to business. It would take me more than a couple of weeks, base on how much I get active here in this site, just to earn my minimum and I can pretty much admit that its not that much. Still, this is better than actually being active in some site and not getting much in return. This is what I actually like about this site.

It's hard to earn money online but this is good enough than browsing the internet for nothing, right? I have been browse the internet in a long time and I don't get any. Until I found that internet is one of the place to earn some money. I spend more time online to make extra money. You right my friend. That getting any referrals is hard because some people did not believe that making online is possible? Even do you get referrals in other places they are not active as I am. It is useless that having a referrals, than having a referrals but not active...

I would say that it's not super easy but it's also not hard. The biggest thing I've noticed about my own personal experiences with online earning websites is that it may take you a while to reach payout. Other then that you just have to find some legit earning websites and everything should be going smoothly. And when you get frustrated with it don't worry about taking a break because online earning can get pretty boring.

I have to say that it is really easy to earn some money online. Anyone can pick up a few extra bucks per month without much time and effort involved. Earning anything really substantial or getting near actually making a living online with no other means of income is quite a bit harder. It certainly can be done, but it takes a lot of hard work and persistence to do it. Most people that try making money online will keep trying to find that non-existent program that will make them rich for doing nothing and then give up after being scammed one or more times. Those that stick with legitimate programs and keep at it will achieve some level of success, so my advice is to do what I do, keep going and don't give up!

I also wonder how these people can generate enough income to pay a bill, I just can't seem to find the time. I used to get discuraged but now I am general happy with what I make and how much time I put into doing it. It's not a living, but it comes in handy.

No. For example I have been on a music scouting site regularily for a month and I havn't even earned 2 quid yet. I participate on mylot consistently but once again havn't even reached the 2 dollar mark. But I enjoy Mylot. The only site that comes across as a money maker involves specifics to your skills, work is paid for online. It's called Elance. I would advise to check it out. If you have the skills to do the high paying jobs they display there then maybe you can. Cheers!
