.....in mylot. But I failed. So, I have five referrals and only one of them is active. (Thanks to my fiancé) I remember inviting my second referral to join mylot because she's good in doing blogs and I thought she might like it here. So, she joined, okay, she just joined. And every once in a while, she's saying sorry because she cannot do mylotting due to her mommy duties. It's okay with me, I understand. Posting my payout every payday in Facebook isn't helping too, they just don't care. One day, break time in the office, one of my colleagues was curious of what I am doing as I keep on typing. I explained to him all, blah, blah, blah - so he joined, and yes, he just joined. As most of you know, recently, I spent my earnings online - and I bragged about it, telling them it's from my earnings at mylot. They got curious about what mylot is, so I explained to them all, blah, blah, blah - they were like, . Okay, so no one joined. I don't know what's wrong with my explanation. I tried to be as descriptive as possible but it didn't work. One of them went whoah! - but still didn't join. So, what have you got there on your referrals so far? What did you do to get some of them? I would love to try your techniques.

I wished i could have referrals too. But i don't have any yet. Earning a few cents more is better than nothing right? Hope i could learn some skills and get some active referrals too, just like you. Maybe there isn't any problem with your explanation, just that you haven't meet the right person at the right time. Don't be discourage, and don't give up hope. Still have time to slowly find the right people to myLot.

Well maybe soon, you're going to have one. Invite some of your relatives. I only have one and as I said, his my fiance. Actually, it took me a few more months to encourage him to join here. It's really not that easy. I won't be discouraged, and you too. Mylot will be here for long so yes, we have lots of time so take it slow to find people, errr, the right people.

Your friend might not believe that she can make money by sharing and learning something here. It is normal for people to have a negative though in their mind. I experience that problem too. I gave up to invite my friends here because he still not believe about online thing... I rather invite someone that I don't know because they are interested to join and make some extra cash here.

Just promote your link in facebook and who knows there are someone interested in making money or someone want to make extra money online. Life at these days is very different and very hard. So, I think more people want to find a way to survive or want to have extra income to manage financial instability...

Like you I've been doing it for years, but still no luck. I guess, most of them do prefer to stay more in FB, Twitter or other socializing sites chatting and exchanging tweets, following and liking posts. Just a thought, since they are spending more time in front of computer, they might as well use some to earn from it.

Some people just look at it as too much work to carry on a meaningful conversation. In mylot you don't find all the text shortcuts - lol, fwiw, omg, etc., and you only make money if you respond and comment. The more you respond/comment back and forth - e.g. a real conversation/discussion - the more you earn. It would appear that some people would rather make mindless, abbreviated remarks on FB that people do/don't even care about (it doesn't seem to matter to anybody) than actually have to think. I've noticed that many newcomers create short discussions with no thought behind them, never come back to comment, then complain because they aren't making any money and then disappear from mylot forever. Or worst case their discussions are so mindless that they get no responses, can't understand why and leave. They think that the amount you earn on mylot is way too small for so much work. IMO, FWIW.

Hi deazil… Upon reading some discussions from other newbies, I understand why they left so early. Most of them are under the ‘no responses’ tab. Some succeed by creating a good discussion but don’t know how to interact that’s why they leave earlier too. I thought of that too that the earnings here are so small. Imagine a day of browsing for discussions and commenting on some them would earn me just 10~12 pesos. And that amount isn’t that helpful for a day. But I realized, there are times that I am doing nothing but reading nonsense news, browsing my friends’ status on FB, etc. So, I’d rather spent my day here than being on the other sites. Accumulated earnings give me so much to expect for next year’s Holidays. By the way, what does FWIW means? .

Oh my, For What It's Worth. It’s really new to me. Thanks! Well, for reading previous responses, I only read from the first few boxes then proceed to responding them. Sometimes, if the discussion has too responses I look onto the last line and see if the starter are still commenting back on them. If not, I won’t. but if I really like the topic, I might as well respond and jump in to other comments there. Additional earnings too.

My efforts to bring people to join mylot were all in vain. I see friends in fb posting great write ups and introduced mylot to them. Two signed up but never participated. I have explained at length to all my referrals the working of this site but that explanation don't seem to register in their logic minds. In record I have about ten referrals but all are sleeping partners! I surrender as I don't think people are interested in joining a site that requires them to Squeeze their brain juices to participate. It takes like minded people to enjoy mylot.

Hi adnileb I dont have any referrals anywhere on this planet. I am happy being all alone - it gives me freedom to do what I like I tied my best to lure my wife into MyLot and she never thought it would benefit her in any way. So I have no one here, there, or anywhere as a referral... However I was referred here and she is still on my friends list though she has moved on and not active here since years. Oh! she is a Filipino and we are friends in touch even today.

Hi sid... Maybe your wife needs some bribe too. Like chocos. I never thought you are referred here, and by a Filipino. So sad she's not active anymore. But good to know you still communicate with each other. Why is she not active anymore?

She is a single mom and also working as a freelance website designer, blogger, a Search Engine Optimizer and Internet Marketeer. We met on another social forum in 2008 when I had just stared recovering and she had offered me some small assignments then. These are some of the reasons I respect her a lot. And she is much younger than me. So she is too occupied with work, and her daughter. For my wife... I did even try bribing her (I did tell her I will pay her an equal amount of what she would earn from MyLot - as those days we had lots of scarcity with Money, I later changed the offer to giving her my earnings too) but she always says - she is happy with only one MyLot addict at home

I still have no referrals here in myLot. In my circle of friends and relatives, no one understands online earning. I had tried bringing a good friend here. We have the same passion in writing Actually, we had been exchanging journals for the past 10years to keep us updated with each others lives before internet came. She is always online in facebook because she have an online store. And yet, she still didn't resister here. I also ask my sister, a writer in their company, to sign in here. She have a blog so I thought she will like it here too. It is fun if you will receive response from your writings and earn at the same time. In blogging, seldom are people who will respond to you. I wish to have some referrals, ofcourse. I wish they will sign in here to discover what really is in this site.

Hahaha. He was our house agent (I mean we bought or house through him), he is into online earnings too and I became his down-line on some earning sites, and so I invited him mylot too. He did registered but after that he seems forgot about it. Hubby is not just like me, he would rather do others things than participate online things. He seldom visits or log in his facebook and emails accounts. I would love to teach hubby a lot on line earnings so that there's two of us earning but he would just add to my frustrations! hahahaha

You're right, maybe they're expecting to earn that much in a day or month. I've been here for two years now and I never appreciated mylot this much on my first months, or I should say on my first year. And the moment I reached my very first payout, that was the time I became active. Really, you have to receive something tangible for you to believe. Before, I tried to believe that this site was legit and really pays you. So, I waited so long for my payout and yes, 100% legit.

I also have around ten referrals but so far none of them are participating in the discussion. Some just participate for some time then quit. But I will continue to spread the benefits I can get from here. I know someday they will realized what they are missing. Have a nice day!

I think there's a big moneymaking opportunity for getting referrals to myLot so in spite of the challenge, it's worth the effort to keep inviting people. But having said that, I also believed that myLot should be part of a person's online workspace and online moneymaking sources. If this is the case, who is the likely market? I thinking aspiring writers and those who have blogs stand to benefit the most from being part of myLot. I still need to test this "theory" and I'm preparing a "sales literature" that will promote blogging in my domains and all the online moneymaking opportunities out there. Hopefully, I'll be able to form a core group by year's end.

Hmmm, so there’s no possibility that I could get someone here in the office. I don’t see any writer here or someone who really loves to blog and the like.

I don't know if I had responded in this certain discussion or not yet. I just feel responding again. I like it here a LOT too. This is better than blogging for me. That's because I like my writings to have responses -- and I get it here. I earn good friends here too. Though it is just a few cents a day, it is still earning that we have than in facebook, right? But I still do facebook too along with yahoo all day. I hope we cab encourage other people to join in here. They just don't know how great is this site. This is a blockbuster topic.

I have referred 20 people here and out of those only ONE is active also and who knows how long that will last! People seem to be active here for a little while and then lose their interest for it. I hate that! The one referral I have here asked me about this site, when she was with me seeing what I was doing. She became interested after that... But again, I don't know how long she will actually be here. Only time will tell.

Most of the above comments only have one active referral. I must say, I was delighted when i read 20 but then you ended up having 1 left. There's one who asked me how, but as i explained it to her, she keep asking questions that have been answered already. She cannot handle explanations and find them complicated even though they're not. I think i'll pursue on explaining this to her because she's kind of eager to earn money. Hope your referral will stay active til the end. =)

That is true. You cannot please everybody. But finding people who can benefit from a "product" such as myLot is a matter of understanding what people really need and providing them the appropriate benefits. I suppose that we here at myLot haven't found the right sales pitch and we also haven't targeted the right people yet.

Well, with referrals it is always hit and miss. Even though people might get curious and join, does not mean they are going to be active. Some people might think it is too much work for them.

I told this to my friends and I'm sure I explained it well. I told them 'why not express your sentiments and get paid?'. So they got curious, but when I said that it's only some cents, all of them think that it's just a waste of time. I wish I could paste it in their brain that a penny is a money. I've been telling them that the time in staying in fb or youtube or viewing everybodys pic can cost cents and the more they spend time, the more they gain cents that eventually makes more money. But they are so focused on "just cents". Well, I tried my best. One day they will realize and regret why they didnt sign up before.

Actually, I've been thinking that too that I'm just wasting my time here for a few cents. Well, I cannot earn that few cents when I post my sentiments on Facebook, right?

And even though I don't make any discussion or wasn't able to participate in the others, I still go here and read. Let's just enjoy it here~
