I made an attempt to add a few members as my direct referrals and I succeeded in getting 8 newbies to sign up. I don't know any of them personally. All eight are inactive, only one has responded to a discussion and has chosen 45 interests. I have sent welcome messages and links to my blog where I have posted about the benefits of posting online but none have bothered to respond. I think I will have to forget this bunch and focus on recriting more.

I don't even bother anymore because people are looking for faster and more than what mylot can offer. I tell people all the time you get what you put in to the site. but,it is not fast enough for some people.

I agree with ''giftsandbagscom'',people only look for faster money making side even me so instead of earning some dollars they spend more than they expect in waste.I joined mylot from someone blogs don't know who was he but for me he is earning some cents from me because i already earned 3dollars and above.We shoyld not bother of referrals as it's just a waste of time.I experienced a lot like posting links in facebook,twitter and freeads sides.

This was my first attempt and I was pleasantly surprised by the results. It is upto the newbie to take this as a hobby. 25% from a referral's earnings is no mean amount. If you have 10 active posters the min. you get is 25$.Is that a waste of time?

If you get enough referrals as you have now eight that's not waste of time but for me it is because no one willing to join under me in my residence.

Wow you've made that much referrals? How did you get them? That's a lot for me. I don't have any referrals. Don't lose hope my friend, maybe one day they will realize that mylot is a great place to be and then they will become active in mylot. Have a nice day! :)

Good that you have eight referrals.I have zero referrals now because no one intersted earning online or some thinks that it is impossible to make money from online.I tried to invite through facebook and twitter but all my friends ''LIKES'' my status or ''COMMENT'' but no one joins. I have got one tips you can get referrals easily from tinyurl by shortening your referral url which your name or id seems no referral ID,because there are some people who don't want to give profit to others even if we provide helpfull information they avoid our referral links.Some people don't want to join or signup from our referral links. You got atleast 8 referrals that's good but they are'nt active.Maybe they will realize soon and will make you some profits. Happy lottings

FB does not work but twitter is handy. Use some catchy phrase and the use your ref link, properly cloaked.

I also have the same experience friend. I have 12 referrals at present and none of them is active so far. It is very disappointing but we cannot do anything. I will continue to invite friends hoping that someday I can found somebody who will work hard just like I am. Have a nice day!

Anyway, it's not easy to get eight referrals, I never have referrals , I tried, but never succeeded. So you are luckier than me, friend.

I suggest you keep trying and don't depend on friends, they will never appreciate the offer. Target the cold market.

I think sometimes people are after instant gratification and so this site may not immediately appeal to them if they can't make a lot of money fast enough. They don't understand the notion that the time you put into this site will not only pay off monetarily but that you will gain access to a resourceful online community. Some might come around and use the site in time but others may not. On to the next. Don't get discouraged.

You have made a good attempt as you get some referrals but if they are not active as in your case then they are of no use. But atleast you are trying to wake them up and that's all you can do in this situation. The reasons for their no-activity may be anything. May be some of them are too busy with their life, may be some of them didn't like the site, may be some just don't like to write so there can be different reasons. That is the uncertainty with the referrals you never know whether they will be active or not. So deal with it and just focus on your participation here. And time to time try to wake them up with some messages and you never know may be some of them will become active here on regular basis. Good Luck

Like the first person said, I don't even bother with referrals anymore. I never had much luck in getting any either on here or on Swagbucks. I did get two or three on here. One was active for a while. The other posted a few things but I think he thought this was a "get rich quick" kind of thing. Once he found out he would be making a few cents here or there and not nearly the amount he likely was hoping for, he disappeared just as quickly one day after writing me never to be active again. It might be a little like subscribers on Youtube. Just because you may have a 1000 doesn't mean all 1000 will watch your videos but only a small percentage will actually be active. Might be what you can expect on here maybe. Good luck in getting active ones in the future.
