Everyday when I click on the 'friends started' discussion tab, I expect to see at least one discussion from my referral friends. I see none of my 57 referrals are keen to start a discussion or post a response. I am wondering if people are making a lot of money elsewhere online. Even if 10% i.e. 6 newbies reach payout everymonth I will also receive 15 $ every month. But that is not happening. I am eagerly waiting for the improvements to myLot that will make this a lucrative on line site. Will someone let me know why newbies are losing interest so quickly?

wow!! 57 referrals and most of them are not active??!! That is a problem for not only you but mylot too. Mylot should make some improvements. Main reason i think mylot do not provide the preference that we get which we all know!! That is why new members lose interest. Mylot should improve its performance if it needs to get more members

Earlier the tasks were paying well when the likes of Sharon Bucks paid 4 $ for a 4 para article. later she reduced it to 2.5$ for 300 words but nowadays there are no tasks worth responding to. Blogs is another place they can improve. Why not convert it intoan international blog directory and have tie uops with corportaes to promote launches and gibe prizes to best entries.

some where out there they are saying that you can make $0.01 per post that you make which we all know isnt the case but that is what they are expecting when they come here. also some may work for a few days and realize they are only making a few cents a day and the pay out looks so far away and so far out there they give up. they dont take the time to see how great mylot really is. thats my thoughts on it atleast

ok. So you are making 0.02 $ per post. That is hardly encouraging fro a newcomer. where are the tasks and articles wherby there is a realistic chance of making 50$ a month. This has been done in the past when there were writing tasks paying you 4$ for four paragraphs from Sharon Bucks. Why is nothing being done about the blogs? Blogs have a great potential for launching pdts and getting bloggers to write reviews.

im not really sure if i am making $0.02 per post because it is based on the quality of your posts. and yes it is very discouraging for a new comer but if they can stick it out and look around mylot and interact with it they will enjoy them selves also. some people can make $50 a month here and all that depends on the amount of time they have to spend here on mylot. i use to make a lot here and it seems the earnings have gone down some but i am still as active as i can be with a busy life off of the computer. im not sure why nothing is being done about the blogs but you could always contact support and ask them why nothing is being done about it...i dont know if they would have an answer but it is worth a try :)

I have a lot more friends than that, but there are some friends that either never participate or friends that make too many posts. In each case, I don`t participate much. Most of the people who post too much, make very low quality posts and I`m not interested in answering them. Keep in mind that this is a social site and I`m sure that you will have a better feedback. Luck!

I have more referrals than friends. I mean the referrals are my friends too, but they joined here because I showed them a way to make some money by posting a few sentences for discussions that anybody can relate to. Obviously, they are disappointed by what they see and I can't stop them from leaving.

My lot has to realize that times are changing and people are turning to the internet to make some money. they have an advantage in thathey have the loyal members who are here because they like it here. I have seen some very good writers here who won't mond posting short reviews for companies that are launching products on line. There are plenty of great writers here who will write great stuff if they are compensated well.

In my experience, most of them come here for the money, and figure out that they can earn better elsewhere. Or they come here for the discussions, and find that a lot of them tend to be repetitive and banal. There are a lot of good discussions here, but some days it takes a lot of time and effort to find them, and some people just don't want to make the effort.

It is hard to force this site just in anyone who wants to earn online. One should be really into writing to be able to gain from this site. I also had several referrals here but none of them became active. They must have thought of earning about a dollar or more a day without having to "work" on it. Actually, of we do have a lot of time to spare, we can be able to earn that much in day. But then again, it is the skill, or probably just wanting to write all the time counts.

Writing is the next step . here you can learn to post and maybe ven improve your English. I know because i have done it. I write now anda 500 word article can fetch me anything from 20$ to 50$. If mylot makes it possible to earn 5$ a day here there will be a dramatic change in attitude. Another are athat is neglected is the Blogs. Why can't we have this as an blog directory. with contests, reviews, affilaite marketing. Mylot can claim a 30% profit from the money earned. I suppose all that is in the pipeline.

maybe because its not easy to earn money online,its kind a small amount they can earn they are less active to mylot some reasons maybe: no permanent pc at home and internet connection are slow or no have time to face more hours in front of computer.

What is the conversion rate of USD to your currency. If that is attractive then where is the harm in making 10$ every month? Yes, mylot takes ages to load but I guess they are addressing this sissue and soon we will have an improved version.

Good to know that you have 57 referrals. Really it is great to have lot of referrals in this site. I too have 3 referrals, but none of them are active here. Most of the people are interested in free income, i.e they are not interested in working hard like posting every day here, but they want a lot of money for their simple post. Mylot is not the place for such kind of persons. They disappointed with their earnings and quit this site, so only lot of referrals are not active here. Hope your referrals will be active one day and you will earn more from them.

Frankly, I have no hopes from my referrals unless there are improvements here. Guess my lot has to adapt with changing times.

I am not active here for the last 2 months but I do miss mylot and my friends here. I also observed that few of my close friends seldom come online. I also missed their topic and having discussion with them. Since last week I am experiencing site problem, slow loading of pages and that could be one of the reason why some felt lazy to come. (not sure of the real reason though)

Loads very slow and sometimes you lose content and that can be tiresome. Last week I posted a lengthy response and when I submitted i had lost the entire content. There was no way that I was going to re type the whole content again.
