This month i have earned $227 from freelance sites. This is my 6 th payment. but i am little disappointed, last time i have earned $219, and now $227, just only $8 increase. I want to know, from you people, how i can earn more than $200, any sites or suggestions. How i can increase my earnings more. My target is to reach above $300.

I presume that your earnings are from article writing and other tasks. The only way you will increase your earnings is by gaining a good reputation as a worker (by completing tasks accurately and professionally and always delivering on time), by learning to choose your tasks quickly and well and by being personally efficient in your time management. Only you know how many hours a month you can spend. Keep records so that you know exactly what your actual hourly rate is for each job. Make sure that you include ALL time actually spent on doing the job, including research time. This is the only way that you will be able to measure your efficiency in doing a job and will be able to identify areas in which you can improve. Learning to use a spreadsheet package will help you a great deal with this sort of calculation.

I firmly suspect that any calculation of hourly rate will be disappointing compared to a regular job. Am I too negative? I am talking about actual dollars earned, not what is promised to new members.

I am jealous. How did you earn over $200 online. I earn maybe $50 a month online and I am trying to earn more. What did you do to earn so much money? To earn more, you probably need your own blog or website, if you do not already. Plus your own business on ebay. I have read other responses to your discussion and no one else has earned as much as you.

I will check these sites out. Thank you for the information. You must be a very good writer. I like to write and have some talent but I do not have a lot of time to write. I work p.t. and that is time consuming. I am also not a professional writer.

gaurav did not earn such an amount, he must be lying. I dare him to let myLotters into it and we will ascertain such possibility. If he is telling the truth, let him openly inform others of the different sites or the type of work and of course, an idea of the number of hours sunked into it. Hope it is not Internet Model.

You should watch your step. Having talked about our achievement on another site then bring to or discuss here on mylot can cause deletion or termination of our membership. Just go and read the FAQ of mylot.

wow. that is really great. this month i did not earned anything but only invested more than $300 in one site. it is good that you earned that much in a freelance site. my experience with a freelance site is not good. i was scammed by one of the project creator. after i submitted the project to him, he cannot be contacted anymore.

you are right. don't do it. i realized that even though freelance site is legit but there are scammers on that site. i will not do the freelance site anymore. what are you going to pay $5 for you see more projects to bid on? incredible.

Manasha, you earned $400, great. But tell us the sites and myLotians/myLotters would try them out and see for real so that by this time 2012, we would all be comparing notes, probably compete on who has earned most after comparing all the monthly earnings.

There is an interesting conflict with respect to your discussion. With such good earnings, most of your readers express a desire to know how you are doing this online earning. On the other hand, if you actually refer to the sites you run the risk of being deleted by Mylot. Is Mylot standing in the way of good information exchange? Some have guessed your site to be freelancer, but you did not actually say that. Have a great day.

Wow, for an online worker, that looks too good to believe. I have just earned about $25 till now. I have to gather some $30 to start a huge project that I have in mind. I'm sorry I cannot share the idea with you. But you can try postloop. I have been earning really well from there.

yes it is too good to believe. i never earned online, trying it for the first time here. Postloop is the site for writing articles, how is the earning there low or average or high?

Wow, I need to catch up. You are doing great so far, in my opinion. I think, you will reach your target anytime soon. You probably should look into affiliate marketing, if you haven't thought about it.

earning that much in a month is great! All i can suggest is to just keep doing what you're doing...not everyone (myself included) can earn that much in a month.

Wow!! To me $227 sounds like not too bad of an amount in a month, if this is Extra $$ for you to help with extras, or keep caught up with some of the bills. Are you wanting $300 a month from just one site, or a combination of everything that you are doing? Personally besides myLot and my Online/Offline Business I do not have that much time to really be actively doing anything else due to I also work Full time. It would be nice to earn more than what I have been, but the extra from everything sure does help.

I think yopu are fortunate to have earned that much. I wish to be earning from home using the computer. Im getting older and physical work is very tiring for me. Wish people dould share some info but nobody ever does.

I think you are already blessed with the opportunity to earn so much online. There are still so many people who do not even know that they can earn money in the internet. I think the answer to this perhaps is more hardwork. I mean, the economy is doing so poorly, and there are even people who are earning so much less than you do. I guess I can call it a blessing if I can earn that much.

Hey brother! you are doing of course well. And, I appreciate your efforts and thirst of making it more. I can tell you the site that can work for you to make you earn more and more.

That is a good sum to have earned from freelance sites. And the fact that they have increased if only by $8 is something to celebrate. Not many people on line are earning this amount - to earn more, just keep doing more of what you are dong now, for it seems to be working for you.. I hope that you realize your dreams.. Good luck. _Derek
