Now that everybody are after money, what do you say about daily earnings here? will you be satisfied if you get around $5 on daily basis or you will need more than that? if you calculate going at $5 /da you will be able to reach $150/month and will it be less for you seeing the amount of time you have spent on online earnings? on an average if you work for 8 hours/day what should be the monthly online income you are expecting?

By "daily earnings here", do you mean myLot? --- 'cos that would be exhausting trying to earn $5 a day here (unless there were tasks available). Either way, on or off myLot, $5 a day wouldn't float my boat unless it was part of other online income I was earning. I wouldn't work 8-hr days for $150 month, not unless it was part of a residual income plan (where I could eventually put my feet up and still earn $150 a month). For an 8-hour day (if I'm super super focused and organised, which I'm not a lot of the time!), I'd be expecting around $100 a day (or every 2 days). It wouldn't equate to the monthly equivalent as I wouldn't work 8-hr days EVERYDAY. I'd be happy making $100 a day 4-5 times a week. Sooo, based on that, $1600 a month would be good. I'd be happy just making/aiming for (and achieving) $1000 a month.

Mylot can also be one along with other program which are also legit and good.One should make a note of legit sites first and the amount he may get by spending time on it.By just blindly joining some scam sites will not help anybody for sure.One should also calculate the amount of time he is spending on a particular site and the amount he is getting paid for it and then move on.My aim is to reach $500/month first and then maybe higher.But i am struggling around $120-$150/month now

@ browneyed you caught my attention when you said that you only accept the offers if you could make 100$ a day or 2 days!! Is it possible to get that? If yeah; then, would you let me know how possible to do that? @ Alienstar yeah I wish to even make about 120 a month but I'm still not able to do any everything seems to be pending

@alienstar - that sounds like a plan. And, like you said, it's also good to be cautious and research a site before you decide to join. $120/$150 isn't bad. If you can make that, then it increases the possibility of making more in the future. @smiley83 - no, it's not quite what I said. I said if I focus really well and organise myself well, then I can make $100 a day. As I'm not super-organised and focused, I don't make that much a day. That's why I said every 2 days or 4-5 times a week. Knowing my weak points, that's more achievable if I work at it. I think it's possible to make $100 a day/2 days. It wouldn't serve me well to think it wasn't possible. I've had days in which I've made $50/$60. My earner of choice is freelance writing and researching. I get paid fairly well for both. To a large extent, as long as the work's there, how much I earn is down to me. So that's why I said I could earn $100 a day (or every 2 days or 4/5 times a week) ---- but only if I focus/organise hard. Whether you can make that much (and how much you make) depends on what you choose to do, how good you are at it, whether there's a demand for it, how much competition's out there and how much time and effort you have at your disposal (as well as self discipline).

$5 is a good start, but $50 is achievable. Most people never make their first $1 online, anybody who goes beyond that first, shiny $1 has the makings of a winner! Everybody started out the same, all staring at the screen, wondering "what if". Well, your $5/day would show that you CAN do this - it IS achievable... and now you just need to keep learning, keep working - and keep improving your game. My online activities are very much part-time, but they earn me a full-time wage. I keep my online earnings going so I break the cycle of that "boom to bust" feeling you can get when you find yourself in/out of work on a regular basis. If I am working, my online earnings are there to spend on fun things, save towards a pension, or just to give to help others. When I am not working, my online earnings are there, like a regular, reliable old friend.... supporting my lifestyle. My daily target is $100/day (see my profile, where I always keep a list of what's working for me right now). Good luck reaching $50/day ... then, who knows how much beyond that! Good luck!!

It is not one site which gives you $%/day but combination of several legit sites can give you this amount.Remember legit sites as by joining scam sites you will only be wasting more of your time and nothing else.I have also wasted more time before during my initial months of online venture when i also wasted too much time on joining all those scam sites for nothing.But now i have learnt all these and on the right path of achieving success.Hope i reach my goal very soon

Its pretty easy calculating like this isn't it? but do you earn this much? if yes, then what all you said here is right or else first aim to reach this $5/day which does make you reach $150 figure monthly which according to me is not at all bad but pretty good income for sometime and then you have to aim for little more than this to show your progress

As an international user, yes.(but not for 8 hours spent a day.) As a US/UK/CA/AU user, i would say.. no. People internationally it's hard to find.. really anything that accepts them and allows them to do work when it comes to online unless you get in good as an article writer somewhere or are good at referring people or run some sort of business. As a US user I know people online personally peaking over $200 a day and they generally do a mix of article-writing, affiliate marketing, running a GPT site, and so on so it's not too hard to fathom making around that or even $100 a day knowing everything I know and what seems to work well for others. If I am planning on spending 8 hours a day I would hope I am making at least $12-$20 per hour(or at least equating to about that much in residual later on.) but would expect much higher as there is much more to dabble in online with much less investment(if at all any) then you would have if you were to look for work outside of the internet.

As you said, it is actually very easy to gain this low amount on daily basis if you are from U.S/UK/Canada, but for international users you have to struggle more.Opportunities and payment are more for members from U.S/UK/Canada and because of this partiality, international workers suffer as the will not have that facility from them.Are you earning god here being an international member?

It would be a nice extra income, but you certainly couldn't give off of it. As it is, the most I've ever made online was $20 and it all came from mylot. It's nice to have that money, but it's not going to last me a trip to the bookstore much less the rest of the year.

How much time it took you to earn $20? once you have earned this much, then it is also possible to earn more if you believe in it.There are enough opportunities in internet and many people are taking advantage of it and earning very good income from it and why not you then? set a goal or yourself and start moving towards that goal and you will reach there for sure

For me, $5 a day is more like a dream. $5 a day would mean around Rs.250 in India and around Rs.7600 per month. I would be jumping up and down with extreme bliss! Because after the Rs.100 investing for the net, I still have Rs.7500 as my pocket money! But that's all a dream... I hope it comes true. Happy mylotting and have fun. Regards, Ajith.

Dreams are good and try to follow your dreams.Most of them will have nice dream, but fail to follow that thinking it as simple dream.But success comes to those who do follow their dreams.Don't rest until you achieve or reach your dream and that is where your success lies.So, this $5 is definitely achievable and believe in it.There are many people who are earning big, but most of them don't even share their secrets

I think $5 a day is very much good job and earning if o are earning for loss of 2hrs a day if you are earning that by working 8 hours a day than that is very poor ratio. Workout something that that will give you some thing round 60-60 $ per day that will make it sound very nice when you will invest 8hrs in a day. best luck.

Tell me are you serious about online earnings here? how much you are earning in online venture.Anyone will love to reach $60/day and it is easier said than done.Reaching that big figure is not that easy, though it is not impossible as there are some people who really earn big, but they also don't reveal their secrets of earning big amount

To earn $5 a day is good for just an additional income, but for it to be my only income in a day, that can't sustain all my physiological needs. Although, if online income can give me around $20 a day then that's a different story. I can maybe start considering working from home.

Tell me if there is anything which gives us $20/day and not only me everybody will be interested here.But my dear, before thinking on figures like those aim for $5/day and see if it is possible and if yes, then you can go on increasing your earnings for sure and one day you might even reach $20 mark per day.My aim is to reach $500/month and i am struggling hard to reach there and i know i will reach there fast sooner than later for sure.It is my confidence after working for so long in these online earnings that i can reach $500/month soon

I personally think that $5 dollars is not alot, but at the end of the day it is better than nothing. If that can be accumulated over a period of a month I suppose it is worthwile. I would rather get $5 than nothing at all.My ideal income would be $500 a month online to start.

five dollars a day isn't that bad. Of course, it depends on how hard I'm working. It depends on how many hours I'm working, and it depends on whether I'm enjoying what I'm doing. If I spend five hours a day doing something I hhated it would be a lot different than spending the same amount of time doing something I enjoyed. I can easily make $5 a day writing, and I enjoy writing, so that's pretty good for mebut then it comes down to whether I want to spend the time working or want to do other things.

It also depends on how long you have been working on these online earning business and you have been around for long time, i think you have to focus for more and not get stuck with this amount.It's all your belief and the patience to run long that makes you a success and not the other way around.Don't leave things half way, don't rest till you reach the goal

I would welcome that $5 dollar earnings a day. I would be able to pay some debt with that. And with proper handling, I can at least put some of it on the bank.

It is easily achievable target for anyone if they put their whole effort into it.People just leave it off if they find it difficult as the forget that all difficult things in life are actually worth more.Even this site will give you around $50/month easily if you put in your effort or maybe even $100 as there are also tasks available now which you can give a try
@ruzzel016 (241)

as for now 5$ a day would be enough, and 150$ per month

5 dollars a day is less

Around $20-$30 a day if not more, becuasse the minimal wage is around 10 bucks
