Have you lost hopes to make money on internet?

Mylot community are people who work hard to make some part time income on internet. It is not easy to make money on internet. There are too many scam sites. There are a few legit sites like mylot where we can make only a few bucks per month. Therefore many people think that there is not much of scope for making big money. Of course there is some scope for making big money too. One has to work very hard, very smart with perseverance till they succeed and this is my opinion. A few professional bloggers are making big money. Some people are making big money by cheating innocent people. I am not talking about illegal business. I do hope there is big money on internet but we need to go a long way.... What do you think?

Hi eshaan, I too feel this way. For me I just spend my leisure time here to have fun by reading and typing posts. It's really interesting to learn and acquire knowledge and information online buy not making ample money. From the day I come to know you I know you struggle hard to try your luck by participating various site and try different ways online to make money. After reading your story I know it's really difficult...... For the type of person who is not good in blogging and other online skill, I agree that it is more practical to get good earning opportunity offline. Hopefully you will manage your offline business successfully and make ample earning my dear. Wish you all the best and happy posting

Hi eshaan you can make big money from blogging. It needs a lot of hard work and smart work though. We are not successful that does not mean it is not possible. We have not tried it enough...

I think the best thing to do is to concentrate on a few main sites which you put the most effort and time into. For example, I've been spending a lot of time on a review site recently and I have actually earnt quite a bit on it in a short time (in comparison to other sites I've been a member of for a while). There is a lot of money to be made on the internet if you think outside the box (such as creating a successful blog or website) and also through selling things online, such as on ebay. There are huge markets out there but you just have to learn how to benefit from them by using the right websites and putting your time into the right places. Obviously there are several scam sites though.

If anything, I think earning online and getting some experience under my belt has helped me rather than hurt me. About a year and a half ago, I didn't know such a thing existed. Now I know that there are a VARIETY of legitimate sites that we have the choice to earn on. Yes, there are definitely a lot of scam sites out there - but I now know that you can earn from taking surveys, writing on sites like AC, posting on sites like MyLot, and doing a variety of other things can actually make you money! It still amazes me. We do have to be super careful for scams and be wary about these things..But if anything, I'm definitely more hopeful than anything now.

I agree with you Maesee, I too make money online in fact I am also a member of treasuretrooper.com and among several other sites that do pay you to work online, but it is also true that there are alot of scammers out there, you just have to be careful of who you decide to work with, I think that now that it is a new year alot of people are turning to the internet as an alternate source of income, what do you think?

Yes maezee you are right. I do beleive we can make good money on internet. At first I had my own doubts. Once I started to get some payments I got the confidence. The biggest plus point I love in this business is that it does not need any investment.

No, not really, but then I've never thought you could get rich fast online. It's a job like any other job (except you decide when you work) so you'll have to work hard and find out what you're doing before you get rich. Of course, some get a lot of money through some strike of luck, but that happens in Real Life too.

If you are cheating someone,then isnt that illegal?Or atleast a scam? I make a decent amount online each month,so I cant complain.Id like it to be more but its ok. It all depends on what you are doing and the time you invest as to how much money you can make.There are even companies like Hertz that have homweworkers so that would be an hourly wage. Writing is lawyas a fgood source of income.

There are times I lost hope, that time is when I received a very low payout or credits here in Mylot. Maybe I am just assuming that my entry or goal per day has a stable credit, but it differs for everyday. Mylot is really for the quality of your post. I just think like this, there is a online earnings, yes that is really true, but online earnings are never big. We do not have to anticipate big earnings online so that we will not feel hopeless when we received very low credits. Those who lose hopes sometimes feel that they already had enough of the online but they come back to try it again. There are just times we lose hope, but we still need this online earnings.

you are absolutely correct, vijayanths. the internet is teeming with opportunities, including making big bucks. but like the mythical treasure, it's everywhere yet not one can find it. that's because there are more people who have the temerity to capitalize on people's search for income.

i was one of those cheated people. my hubby and i joined a business venture (a legal one) but it wasnt working out for us because we dont live in the US (we are in Canada). other than mylot, i am not sure how to make any type of money.
31 Jan 10
Cher im so sorry to hear that. There are so many other ways to earn online, without having to expend a dime. When i started, i decided i was going to start the free way. Well, somewhere along the line i had to expend about $20 in the whole one year, which was annoying. However, i have made my money back over many many times. There is no fast way to earn online, but there are simple systematic ways of aiming to earn a decent amount on the internet. But any which way we view this, 'Hardwork + Patience + Perseverance = The key to Success' on the web. Cheers.

I haven't lost hope yet at making money online. I have earned a few dollars. I think I just need to work harder to earn more. I don't consider online jobs as my main source of income because I know I can't earn enough online to support my lifestyle. But I use my online earnings to add up to my savings, and so far I haven't been disappointed.

I have hopes of making money on the internet. I don't think I will ever make big money, but if I can start making a few hundred a month, it would be a great help. It is you have to wade through so much crap to try to find a decent site.

hi teamrose, you sound very practical. You can make big money but it is very very difficult.

have to agree there are a lot of scam sites, not only is that but there are also work at home scams, and there's way to many of them out there. I guess every is trying to make a buck. life and the world is crazy with the whole money. trying to make money can be hard sometimes, can't find a job sometimes can really be rough. for mylot well you won't get rich, but when you do make that buck you may just receive it when you least expected, :P

There are online jobs like data entry, translation, medical translation etc. apart from mylot. You can earn more in that. But only problem is you are not sure about the payment. We lost one US payment. We provided service and we did not get the money. But many are paying too. You have to properly make searches, register in different sites and then slowly the work picks up. So there is scope for earning on internet. But perseverance and patience coupled with hard work is required.

Nope, I never was discouraged. You have to look at it as challenging, nothing is taken for granted and no one will provide you free money. My steps on how to be successful ? You needs guts and also you need to take chances. But not bad one, do your research, search up information, come up with a plan. Once you got these steps done then go for it, do your best and don't regret it. Do not care about SCAMMERS, I'm sure the rule of life is Action = Reaction, they will get what they deserve.

I agree that it is very diffucult to make money on the internet nowadays. When I first started, about eight years ago, it was easier to make a little bit here and there. It has become more and more comptetive, people copy one another and like you said, there are so many scams around. I have heard of a few bloggers who make big money, but that must be only 0.1% of bloggers.

31 Jan 10
You are absolutely right jenny. I think it won't be even 0.01% but less than that. Still I am making efforts to succeed.

At first its difficult to keep make my first pay-off in many internet paying sites I joined. But when I receive the first one, the latest is now very easy. I write articles on three sites and spent almost two months writing more than 300 of them. Now I rarely write but my previous articles were earning some cash which was paid every month. Its because I never lost hope about the first pay-out.

I get discourage very often because the amount of money that those websites offers is extremely low, and it doesn't even reach the minimum wage.
