Just curious...how much do you make each month on Mylot? I am new and so far my earnings are a mere 16 cents. Yikes! Is it possible to make even $10.00 a month on Mylot?

It is quite possible to make at least $10 a month with MyLot. There are many who do. You need to be active and you need to understand the meaning of "discussion". Starting a discussion is one thing but maintaining it by discussing the topic (in comments on the responses you get) is quite another! Most people who complain about their earnings here are those who haven't yet understood that MyLot DO NOT pay 'per post'. Earnings are calculated according to the QUALITY of your participation - in other words, how WELL you can discuss topics.

Those who earn best here are those who hardly look at their earnings at all but simply get on with the job of responding and commenting descriptively and with value to the discussion.

You have it, Koon999Tan! The secret is to think about the kind of responses you expect and which you are likely to have something to write about in return. Thinking of a topic is relatively easy: wording it in such a way that you are likely to receive good quality responses to which you can reply with good quality comments is far harder!

If you don't comment to the responders in your discussions you will earn nothing for them. You had 8 responses in one discussion and commented to only one. Lost earnings for you. Seven chances to earn and let it go. Did you read the guidelines & FAQs? You should. This is a discussion site. You get nothing for what others type. If you don't comment back to your responders, in other words - discuss - you will not earn. You can respond to discussions of others and earn that way as well.

I would say don't look at mylot as your source of income unless you have all day to sit behind your PC and post. Its that simple, I take it as fun and a site where I can learn a lot of new stuff daily when I have time. So should you and good luck with your online earnings :]

I have been here for over a year and I haven't had one payout. I have been much more active here in the last few months though. I don't really post, if I don't have something to say. Thanks for the advice.

making discussion is practical because that is your discussion meaning you have the full knowledge and grasps of the topic.

I too am new and I am concerned about earning extra money. Money is tight for everyone these days. I have a 3 and a half month old baby girl and am a stay at home mother and I am on here to earn some extra money to help cover gas, bills, baby essentials, like diapers and the likes and I am joining other money making sites as well. If anyone has any additional suggestions on ways to make money from home, I would love to hear about them and I actually started a discussion about it. Thank you in advance for any information. As I try stuff I will post updates on what has worked for me and what has not worked very well.

I make whatever I earn by participating in the discussions. It can vary a lot month to month. You have gotten great advice about participating by commenting back, but it does not seem that you are taking it seriously. You will not make a living on MyLot, especially not in the US, but you will connect with others and you will learn about other opportunities and you can become really rich in friendships and relationships. Make friends, have fun, comment on the responses and see how you do. 16 cents with a user rating of 20 is not too bad really. Now get busy, get to your discussions and comment back to them. Make some friends. There are people on here who make enough in a month to pay their internet connection. I am usually around $10- $15 depending on what else is going on in my life.

You have gotten some really GREAT feedback to this post. Now be sure and take heed because the advise they gave...is well worth it if you follow it. If you come to mylot solely for the earnings- you are sure to be disappointed. Because although you can make some change, like one person said..they make enough to cover their internet bill- you WILL NOT get rich off of posting or responding here. Try to think of it as another social media site you are a part of. For example- I split my time between here and facebook- mainly because facebook is filled with my friends that I have met in real life- and mylot is full of new and interesting friends I have made all over the world. And in a sense..some people spend hours upon hours on facebook- and get paid nothing to do so...so mylot has one up on them- with the same concept...post, read, engage others in conversations. Good luck to you and hope you enjoy it here with us. I have been a member now for 6 years. Sometimes Im active for months at a time and sometimes I take a month or two off...just depends.

Make a thousand of comments or discussions to have your $10 after 24 hours. be active in discussions and tasks. make a hundred responses a day and you will earn that amount within ten days.

I've been slightly negative with mylot because of my earnings, and I'm hoping to at least earn around $15 a month. but when I read all your comments, i've been uplifted and thought that earning this much is really possible. But never look at mylot as a money machine but a website to have fun discussing with people who have different vision and outlook in life. I realize that if i keep on thinking of earning I wont get what i need because im not having fun, now that im already having fun mylot. i kept on posting meaningful topics, and leaving comments to my own topic and with other people's topic. and didn't even noticed that i've been posting a lot lately and been logging in more often.

It is easy to reach $10.00 in a month if you would just provide a certain number of hours each day for Mylot. IT would help you if you would set a goal on how many responses you should make in a month for you to be able to reach the minimum payout.

hi there, first of all, welccome to mylot! =) You know, when you are comfortable with the site, when you are able to create discussions and respond to comments of your discussions you will be surprised as to how much you can make in a month - i am not talking about hundreds but reasonable amount each month. Maximize the search - but do not abuse and you may also get rewards from it. Create discussions, post replies with quality and reply to comments given to you. make friends and reply to their discussions, as they would also reply to yours, in turn you shall be able to post comments back to them and start meaningful conversations too. All these have helped me with mylot and so far, with the number of hours i try to be in mylot ( about 4 hours a day) on my cellular phone mostly, i am able to meet the $10 minimum payout in two and a half weeks. So it is really possible. So... goodluck to you and hope to see you around mylot. ;)

Hi, welcome to mylot.. Since you are new in the mylot, of course it must be quite complicated for you to earn money at higher rates.. but once you become acquainted with mylot, two things are sure to happen for you, one the rate of earning will be increased and at that time you will be enjoying mylot for the fun and knowledge than on money. When I was also new to this site , I used to be irritated by my meager earnings . But , now I don't care much about the money but just enjoy having discussions.
