Are all these online penny jobs worth it?

Do all the people here just belong to so many get paid to sites that you're making a decent living off of it or do you have high hopes that one day it will replace your income? I've tried so many get paid to sites and they always either disappear, become over saturated, or pay so little that it doesn't really make a difference. What I want is to drive traffic to my blogs and then put the GPT links on there. Does anyone do this? Have you been successful at doing this?

I am also trying to increast traffic to my blog which has my GPT banners. I have had only a little sucess so far, but a referral here and there is more than I had before! I make most of my money writing online -- hundreds of dollars a month. Legit sites pay more upfront but take far more time. If you are a fast writer, you can make quite a bit with sites that pay per article view, but you can write and submit much faster. If you are interested in starting to write articles, please add and pm me. I've been making more money each month, over $300 last month, and looking at almost $500 this month.

I focus on Demand Studios, Helium, and Factoidz, with occasional contributions to triond, bukisa, and wikinut. I know people who swear by triond and bukisa, but my favourites are the first three I mentioned.

I don't know what mturk is, but since I can write a 500 word article (depending on the topic, and how much research is required) in about 10-15 min, 2.00 per article is not bad! Do you get residual earnings from the articles, too?

Not much, but it doesn't hurt either as long as you're not available to do something else for more money.

I'm working on affiliate marketing and article marketing. I am finding some success with these so I'm going to be working more with them. The biggest success I'm having is with eBay and selling my art. With affiliate marketing I have learned a lot about marketing that I can apply to selling my art.

I think they might be for some people, because let's face it: all these pennies do add up. Personally, I focus on better paying things though. I do not have a lot of time to spend on online earnings so I need the stuff I do to be lucrative.

Dollars are made up of penny too. Most of the online task are simple job so you can't expect a lot of reward but they build up if you join more sites and recruit referrals. I've build website and list my paying sites with payment proofs on them. Although I won't dare to say I'm very successful, I do get referrals because of this. If you're interested, you can take a look at my website under my profile.

Hi, I do believe some people really earn lot from online jobs. I have few friends who are writing a paidpost and they are getting a good pay every month. I just started to write paid post and pretty new in this line. I have joined few websites for paidpost recently and I hope I can get more things/review to write up at my blog,which can earn me some money. AT this moment, I also stay active in MyLot which hope to earn more day by day.

If you're active on a few, it can add up surely! If you try a site like chacha.com is god. you need to pass a proficiency test but if you fail you can try again as a different role. You need to put in a valid ocial security number, etc but its legit. It was shown on ellen degeneres... anyway, you can start off around 50 bucks a week if your active like every day for a few hours. HOWEVER. after a long time, you can make up to 500 a week. These are actual statistics. Not enough to replace a regular job, but that 500 adds up when it turns into 2 grand. I failed my first proficiency test as many seem to (i checked) but I'm waiting for an email to get another chance. Its something cool to try out and definitely isn't a penny job when you get faster and better at it.
