Guides on Online Earnings
July 5, 2010 9:16pm CST
For the past two years, I'd been trying to earn money on line, and believe me it's not an easy task. Some may find it easy, but as soon as they get involve, it is then that they will find out it is not that easy. Online earnings may look easy because it is a kind job where you can decide where to work. Generally you can work in any place, well then of course, the place should have the access to the internet maybe this is the reason why online users thought of online earning easy. And yes, you don’t need a boss in this kind of job. But choosing a site where to work online is quite difficult for first timers. Usually they are becoming victims of those sites that promise big rewards. As those sites usually do is to promote their sites saying they are giving or paying some thing big, in exchange of something that is very easy to do. Examples are Paid-To-Click sites that are paying $1.00 to $10.00 per click/visit on an advertisement. Some of this sites are fineptc.com, ptcwallet.com, granptc.com, tendollarclick.com, neopays.com, bux.to, buxextra.com, dollargpt.com and other high paying SCAM sites. Why are those sites doing this scam? It is because they are gathering more referrals for those sites that are really paying money in which they are members. And also they are earning from a features know as Paid-To-Promote (get paid by promoting a site). There are also scam Paid Survey sites. They are promising huge payment for every survey you take, but you need to accumulate a big minimum payout balance before you can withdraw your money. And usually those high rate minimum payout balance are use to delay a member from withdrawing their money, and let that member work hard for the sites owner’s personal benefits. As soon as the members reach the minimum payout balance, it is only then that they will found that the site is not really paying its members and it is a scam. So the higher the minimum payout balance, the longer a member would work to earn it. And it is sad that in the end you’ll find yourself fooled. Almost all SCAM sites have a high minimum payout balance. By the way, for those who are just starting to earn online and not familiar with minimum payout/cashout balance, it is the amount of money that you should earn in a site before you can able to withdraw it in PayPal, AlertPay, Liberty Reserve, and other online money transferor sites. There are also site that are pretending to be an honest paying site by actually paying their members. They will pay those pioneer members, for them to encourage others to join the site. With a proof of their payments, pioneer members can easily refer this site to others. And when the sites gathered enough members, the site will then stop paying all the members. Some indications that a paying site is turning into a scam site are; the payment per advertisement click increases; minimum payout/cashout balance increases; changes in the mode of payment, from instant to a waiting time; payment proofs are not updated; and advertisement are becoming cheaper. An example of this scam site is gagabux.com. You might heard that gagabux.com is paying and an honest site, but that is on its first month only. Later when this site had gathered 300,000 members then it stop paying its members. There are plenty of scam sites online, they are even more than those honest or elite sites. So if you are to try online earnings, try to investigate first. You can do this by searching for comments and reactions of those people that had tried the site. Or you can join those known elite forums like MyLot.com and sulit.com. Or you can ask for answer in yahooanswer.com. Better ask and investigate first before trying a site and later find out that you’ve been SCAM.

I have been doing this for over 10 years. It is just a matter of doing your homework and not jumping on every new program that comes along. I have found that people put way to much importance on scam sites instead of concentrating on paying sites. There are dozens of programs that have been paying their members for YEARS. So what needs to be done is for people to build their legit list..program by program...there are always going to be programs that close their doors...that is the nature of online earnings...but as long as you have a strong base of paying programs...sites like gagabux will never get you down...it is just one program. Happy Earnings

Of course but sometimes results aren't real. Many people don't really know if site is paying, but they are promoting it as best site ever, just because they want to have some referrals and stuff... That's why you have to research it deeply, but the best way is to ask other people - for example here on myLot. They won't lie to you!

Thank you for your advice. I am also having difficulties finding sites that really pay instead of those that scam. I love mylot because this site has great people and we help each other out. I belong to a couple of GPT sites and they do not pay as well. I belong to readbud, but I am not so sure about that site. I do belong to myturk (amazon), but I just started there. I have noticed a lot of web sites have payouts of 10.00 minimum. Does ayone know of any sites that payout 5.00? Iking for ways to make a little extra money so I can start making items to sell online.

yes i also agree with you. That's why whenever i get a site here which helps me make money i start a discussion on that site to find out if that site is legal or not. Through the responses i come to know about that site. I have been scammed many times before and i do not wish to be scammed again.

I agree with you. Earning money online is not easy. It is as hard as any offline job. Though some are lucky enough to be successful in this ventures, a lot are still striving to reach the top. Not to mention the fact that we need to be on the watch out for scams that may come in our ways. I also hate the fact that sometime people think that getting rich to online money making activities is instant. IN any job, any endeavor, only those who are hardworking and lucky reap rewards. If your not lucky, you need to be hard working.

I do agree on every word that you have commented. I have been doing the same, wasting time trying site after site.

Swagbucks I want a 5 dls amazon gift card and Lockerz I want an Ipod (not very real to me) But the only one that has really paid me is Amazon turk site, the only thing is that sometimes I dont fing good tasks to work on Cheers !!

well as long as a site is legit and paying, for me it depends on the user already how to earn as much as he can. we all have our own strategies. and also, time is gold, so choose carefully what site you want to spend your time on. if you're interested in doing offers and playing games to make money, check out my profile. i also have in there my payment proof. =)
