Many people find it difficult to earn around $100 per month in online works as they struggle working in different programs to achieve this target.But suppose you get a way of earning around $500 per month in some programs, will you settle in those programs only or will you start finding ways to go still higher and try to find other websites to earn more

I still remember before 3 years when I joined online earnings i got my payments of $1 from Orangebiz and Donkeymail and it took me about 3 months to hit $2 .Now i am in a stable position and thinks always positive.But as having offtime job also cannot give much time. My aim this year to hit $8000 atleast in total.Last year it was $1600.

Wow that's great! I just started two weeks ago and yes, you're right. It's hard to get to your first dollar most especially because I'm still finding my way around. Your comment is an inspiration. Maybe you can give us tips on how you were able to hit your target. More power to you!

If I could earn 500$ a month online at home, I would definitely be very thankful for it. If I could handle another online job together with that high earning one , I would still grab the opportunity. 500$ a month is more than enough to sustain a living. Currently I am earning 300$ a month from my day job. If i could earn more than that at the comfort of my own home, I would leave my day job and concentrate more on that job opportunity.

Yes, $500 would be very good earnings for you as you are getting only $300 in day job.But if you can earn around $300 in the time left after your day job, then i don't think you need to quit the job as you can even more than $500/month isn't it? all in all it is all the amount of time you can spend and the earnings you get from that time spent

Well I try work by the saying "Dont work harder, work smarter" so eventually I would be working with a proportionally increasing earnings online so if the energy spend/used for earning more is the same why not earn more?

You might be very true, but getting smarter is difficulty and smarter people are not common people and these people are not spending much time for working and even then earning substantial amount by working in their own smart way.Everybody likes to live smarter, but is it easy as you say? your lines written above does make sense and look easy only in paper isn't it? don't you also think so?

Im not sure if it is only easy on paper for every day im online i learn new things on how i possible can increase my online earnings, but it does though take some hard work before you get to see the results, but once the results are comming in the smarter method is slowly adapted to it.

If I could do that it would be great, not enough to leave my full time job, but what it could do to start paying down debt would be incredible. Let me know if anyone figures out how.

There are quite a few people who have managed earning around $500 /month, but most of them won't reveal their secrets as they don't lie others also to reach that target as they did which is very bad and this shows their selfish character isn't it? so, it is possible to reach $500 and you have to make a study of yourself by talking to others who will have some new inputs which will help us for sure

Wish I knew a way to make atleast $50 a month, I don't think I'll ever get to the big amount of $500 a month, anyone got any suggestions for me?

If you can reach $50 a month. why can't $500 be reached? this requires your indomitable will power and the passion to succeed as without these you cannot achieve these for sure.Nothing is impossible in this world and you only have to believe in it and make things possible.There are many legit sites like Mylot to make it big for you.Even by being regular in Mylot can make you earn around $50-$100 /month for sure

I think I would stick with the sites, but I would still be trying out new sites, cause I think that's the best thing about online earning, is that you can try new things and not be stuck with the same thing every single day. I don't like doing the same thing every single day, so I'm sure I'm still going to join new sites even if I was earning that big ( how I wish! )

Stick to the sites that pay you and if possible try to spend more time on sites where you can work more and maybe this will add to your revenue more instead of searching for new sites as most of the times, searching for new sites will make you lose much of your precious time and this is frustrating and also tiring.Online venture should also be interesting to make it worth

As a student this is really big amount for sure.But you can also cannot devote your whole time here being online isn't it? so, without spending more time here, how can you dream of getting near to $500.As being a student itself is so demanding and you will have to kepe studying for exams, daily assignments and over that carrying on these online activities will be demanding for sure

I was able to earn more than $600 per month in the last 2 months - through my online earning jobs - and I could say that it was more than enough for me. However, as I am still paying off some credit cards, I still have not stopped in my target of paying off everything at the soonest time. It was just fortunate that I was able to find online jobs soon after I resigned from my previous job which brought me nothing but stress, pressure, headaches and debts (for being underpaid). I am better off now, and more at peace, but I still aim to find better online opportunities. However, I intend to lie low once I am able to get rid of all my debts before the year ends. By the way, if you're interested, you can take a look at my website so you'll have an idea what I am talking about. I am a freelance writer and if you're interested you can also do writing jobs, transcription jobs and other small tasks. The links are all on my site attached to my profile. Best regards.

Is it? earning $600 per month is simply awesome and try to get it regularly for a few moths now one and then only decide on increasing it.But going through your list, i have also found sites like readbud which is a proven scam as i have also reached $42 now but not getting any reviews now.It has been more than a week since i got any new reviews from them, so i have come to a conclusion that they are scam and you ares saying it is legit ! But there is a very good earning site in your list as you have also named "ODesk"-which s pretty interesting and though many of them are earning here, i am not getting any opportunity and still trying to find it out

it depends on where will you use the money. is it for yourself alone or for family? it also depends on the cost of living in your country. in the philippines, that amount would be enough, way above the poverty level which is only 312 dollars. but consequently, it is better to go on self-improving then stick only to one ideal, right?
@alienstar (5140)

Even if you are using it for family also $500 is good isn't it? as yous aid, dollar exchange in some countries is pretty high and in those countries this money will be very huge and they can make a very comfortable living by this amount.But before coming to conclusions like this it is also important to reach this figure first and then conclude isn't it?

Human nature will push you to find ways to increase your current earning. It's not actually the amount that drives you but whether all your needs are being met with that amount. $500 sounds small for people living in countries where the cost of living is high. But I live in a third world country and $500 is way over the average income of an employee.

It is definitely human desires which will have no limits isn't it? and there is no harm in it if you can achieve that.But before that one has to look into regular income around this range for a few months and only then he can look into adding some more earnings into that.Many people fail here because of shear excitement of earning big in month and then settling below that next month

You are right. Earning $100 is hard. And boy, if I would get $500 in a month I will definitely be happier. But of course if there are more ways of earning much more than $500, so much the better. In reality, $100 is already difficult. I am really scouting for ways to earn more on the internet.
@alienstar (5140)

In the beginning, every target becomes difficult and once you achieve that and get a regular earnings around the same figure it becomes more of an calculated effort to earn good amount as by then you will know a bit of earning good online income isn't it? everybody goes into this stage and will not capitalize on it which is very important here.

There is definitely no harm in looking for more opportunities only after you reach around $500 monthly and if you just reach $500 in one month and go on searching for other earning opportunities, probability of decreasing your regular profits are more which has to be controlled in a proper way.Anyone will like to earn more here isn't it?

Whether is is enough or not depends on what amout is the possible potential.I donot know how to earn so much online.Even $100 is difficult.Perhaps some guys can do online task to earn a lot of many.That is realistic.But it is not easy to earn big money by easy labor,even though it is possible,that wouldnot be permanent or popular.

There are more people who struggle her earning nothing in a month and next to them there are people who earn around a dollar or two in a month and then there are also people earning around $10-$20.So, majority are earning nothing here and most of these people are beginners and excitement makes them join every site and get frustrated at last.But there are some people who earn more than $100 and i am also one among them , but i am aiming at those who are next to me who are earning more than $300/month

I would be thanking the heavens above if I find a way to earn $500 dollars a month working online. But if the opportunity still allows me to have extra time to do more work, then I will. I think there is nothing wrong with aiming higher if you are looking at the future. If I could, I want to retire comfortably with my husband, children and even, grandchildren.

For me as a student, I would stay but depending on my time I can work, I will still search for another site to increase my income. Of course no one would not want to work for money we always need it for our day to day activity.

Money is needed in every mode of our life isn't it? some earn it legally and others do follow illegal ways to achieve this which is really bad.I had been struggling in the initial days of online earnings where i didn't even earn anything for first two months and it was really frustrating to be in that position for anyone and it did take time for me to come up from there till here

$500 is a huge earning for people like me who lives in a country where the value of the dollar has a huge exchange rate. I guess I will stick to the programs if they are able to pay me $500 every month and a legit site also. But I guess, hard work is really necessary for it, however there is limited site who are really paying such huge amount.

Maybe this $500 is very huge money for you as you said, still it will be good money for all international members here as most of them are earning pretty much lesser than that much here and are struggling to achieve more and more by participating and joining more sites.This is very good amount even for as i am desperately want to reach this figure and i ama slo confident of reaching some day

I would have to say that around 500 dollars a month is definitely enough for a sustainable life if you are cautious of spending. You could also pick up a part time job or join more sites or just dedicate more time. Also if you were earning around 500 dollars a month online I'm sure you could gain a whole bunch of referrals by telling them about it. I believe that the online world could get to that point at some time if it continues to grow in members and investments. It will take dedicated members to keep the sites active. It will be interesting to see it continue to grow though.

There are opportunities coming everyday and we only have to pick the right and legit opportunity which gives good money in less amount of time spent in there which does give us great online earnings which will not be easy otherwise for sure.One has to believe in what he is doing and work hard in moving towards the goal you set as without the target, one cannot hit anywhere isn't it?

I'd eventually like to earn most of my income online. Therefore, $500 a month wouldn't be enough for me to live on. I'd definitely want more than that. Besides, I wouldn't want to put a limit on it, anyway; why should I?

Online income is really good isn't it? and i started as an full time employee in a company and was slogging fro more than 10 hours a day to get my fixed monthly income which was not enough for me.later on i quit the job because of frustration and got into the world of online earnings and started doing well after initial problems

well if it is stable enough meaning that i dont need to be preoccupied by the websites/programs all day then i think it will not be enough. i have set up goals in my earning online an before i have reach the 100 a month but im now back to zero.

setting goals and moving towards it in full force is always god for anybody.Without target one cannot hit anywhere isn't it and it's always nice to set a reachable target first and just concentrate on reaching there first before you aim for much higher targets as most of them fail here because of aiming high,. dreaming high and joining every site boasting of higher earnings and at the end earn nothing !

If I could make $500 a month online I would be so very ecstatic. I would quit my job right here and now. xD I'd be taking a $300 a month paycut by quitting my job, but that's ok with me. I've always wanted to be a housewife and lately we've been looking for a chance for me to be able to do that and it hasn't come yet as we really need the money that I make each month. But if I could earn that then we'd be set. :) plus, I've been having a lot of back trouble recently and my chiropractor has said that I need a new job because serving is just too rough on my body and I can't handle it for too much longer.

very job you do, you need to take rest and it is not that computer jobs are easy by sitting and working in computers are also demanding and it is not that easy and maybe if you are in different job, you might have more interest in this new field.Mind you, one can reach to $500 here if he/she believes in tat achievement and goes for it in full force as nothing is impossible in this world
