I see numerous articles on making money at home. Truthfully, there is NO EZ way to make money at online. I've also read many articles regarding referral hints, including "U join mine, I'll join yours! HAHA I've had three experiences with referral exchanges. One, I purchased referrals. Well, that has only been successful in one program and that is renting referrals is neobux. My second was joining a "guaranteed referral program. Totally unsuccessful. My third was biting on a banner that said "U join mine and I'll join yours". I joined his. He didn't show up in my down-line. Then I was stupid, I joined another one. It seemed like the only time he contacted me was to solicit membership in his down-line. The last time it happened I confronted this issue. I haven't heard from him since. I dis-enrolled from the programs I had joined. Am I suspicious, you bet. What is the answer? The answer is relationship marketing. This involves social networking and participating in chats. This does not mean throwing links in chats, get to know each other, then ask if they are interested. If you solicit without permission, u risk loosing friendship. If it is done at skype, I will ban u. If it is done here, admin takes care of it for me. What is your opinion on my experiences? Prosperous mylotting

All the work involved in making money online just makes one thing clear for me. That there is still no substitute for hardwork offline. One may do a few strategies to accumulate all earnings to bring it to a significant amount, but I don't think that the time spent is even worth it, as compared to a regular eight-hour work day.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking having an offline job. It's just, right now, that's incredibly difficult to find in my area. I've been job-hunting for quite a while now, and still haven't had any luck. So in the meantime, I figure I can at least try to bring in some income by doing online work. The best sites are those where you can earn for doing something you'd already do. For example, social networking, like here. I can possibly earn money here, just by discussing topics I'm interested in with other people. The best thing about it, though, is that I learn something from being here. Now, if only I could find a way to make money by talking about my experiences at beginning a vegetable garden for the first time in my life! I'd be a happy camper then.

I absolutely think making money is a hard task. It seems that only a select few can really make a good living off the internet. But there's still enough ways to make some pocket money though, which is why I'm still here. I have also tried many ways of getting more referrals and most of them do not work. I totally agree it's only worth it to refer people you know. Not only is it a more natural way to get referrals but when you refer people you know they're much more likely too stay active in the site.

I do not think there is any one way to get referrals that is better than another. What works for you will not always work for me. I have lots of pages on the internet and all of them are working to help me get referrals. Some of these pages have been up for over 10 years.

The thing is, how do you get pages? I mean, pages that you -like- and that work for you? I have no idea on how to create a website and there are so many website starters out there that I wouldn't know where to begin. How do you determine which sites are trustworthy, other than by taking a chance? And to go out and test each one takes not just work, but a LOT of work and time. It's something I'm interested in doing, but I'm struggling to manage my time as it is now, without adding in another huge research project. Right now, I'm limited to "dabbler" links, places where I can go and read up on the subject, spend some time (but not a great deal yet) looking around and trying to learn. I wouldn't mind trying something to get my feet wet, so to speak, it's just a matter of figuring out where to begin.

Herro Fennier Welcome to Mylot. May you enjoy the awesome and educational experience I am enjoying here. I learn something new every time I read an article or responses. As for being a student, I did not check what country u live in. It also depends on what other responsibilities you have. Do you have a job ti pay expenses. Do u live at home or maintain your own residence. Are u in the dorms? Are u involved in other social functions on campus. A suggestion, u might use mylot as a resource for some of your studies. Prosperous mylotting

You see numerous articles because there are numerous ways to make money online as well as offline. I'm not sure if I agree that there is no EZ way or not.(jury still out on that one) I find earning money online both fun and easy. Getting referrals can be a chore sometimes but it seems to be getting easier with time. I look at a lot of things out there, and believe me there are a lot, and evaluate them as to whether they fit into my scheme of what I want to do. I have even checked out several that you have led me to but they were not what I want to do so I didn't join. But don't give up on me. I like Free and next to free programs and I am doing quite well at them, where the programs that promise riches in weeks I know are not for me. They are already gone by the time I get them checked out.
