$1.84 in one day? In 8 hours!

United States
January 5, 2007 8:35am CST
Heres the scoop. I have been a member two days. My first day I was on for about 2 hours and made $0.66. Yesterday I was on for about 8 hours or more and only have $1.84... IS this normal? I posted a punch of discussions and rated and gave responses. I also commented those who answered by disucssions. What am I doing wrong? How can I improve and make more money? Or is this normal payout? HELP PLEASE!

I also have that problem. Yesterday i was online for about 6 hours, i uploaded few photos, and i have one referral. My posts were 10 lines long but guess how much did i earn? $0.56 $0.39 discussions $0.15 photo and $0.02 referral. I am mad at mylot because they only gave me $0.06 for one discussion with 600 words.

how do you know the break-down of what they paid you for? I would like to know how to do that. I just don't understand how it pays so low, I still think there is a trick to do better, but I just want to make more money.

i dont know how much do i get per single post, and i dont think that anyone can see that, but i was disappointed because i got only $0.06 for that post. How do i know that? It was my only post that day because i wanted to see how much you can get per post with that amount of words. i thought at least 10 words=$0.01 but obviously not.

you wont be able to post pictures with you discussions untill you recieve a rating of 500 or more, untill that time what you want to do is provide quality respoces to discussions. you will never make an overly large amount of money from here, so the thing to do is enjoy responding and posting discussions then have the money as a bit of a bonus at the end of the month. khris

It's pretty typical for me..I have earned 8.85 for 352 posts. It doesn't really pay when you post to a dicussion more then 1x, or to answer your own, at least this is "my experience" it does not increase your ratings, and i've not seen it show up in earings.

That's the normal payout. That's how much you are going to be paid for all those work you have done. Max I was paid was $1.12. That too I uploaded many pictures too. So too earn more money post pictures and refer people. If your referrence is making a lot of money you are gonna do that at the same time too. So refer about 20 people and if you can earn 10 cents from each of them every day then you will get about 2 dollars.

Ok, I will have to try referring people then, I think I only referred one person. Do you get paid of how often they use the site as well?

You earn 25% of what your referrels make. It's the best way to make money on MyLot in my opinion.

well mylot payment , as i heard from some other user is actually decided by a computer algorithm. so payments depends upon quality, quantity, and also on how many people respond to ur discussions. so i think it is not weird to get such payments. well actually i made 4 posts and once i got $0.31 and other time i posted abt 22 , i got only $0.24.so we can never say abt this payments.

It's more then just the time you spend on Mylot, it's about the quality of the discussions and posts. If all you post are nonsense (not saying you do) you're not going to make much.

Hey my friend...i don't think there is any problem with your payout. You are earning quite good enough considering you just have started off in mylot. I am also a new comer here and i am trying to learn ways of earning more money in less time but i do not compromise with the quality of my responses. Two aspects we have to keep in mind are that first of all your posted response should be descriptive in nature..ie little lenghty which covers details and secondly more number of postings in less time yeild more money. But note that your comments on a topic don't add to your total amount. Best of Luck Friend !

Lindsey, Make good quality responses, add a picture too. Start discussions that you feel will get lots of responses. Add a whole bunch of photos in your "interests" and you will get credit for them. $1.84 is pretty good. Just remember you're not going to be making tons of money here. Think of what we're doing, we're posting responses. The work isn't exactly worth thouands. Just have fun!

That was only one source so you are not doing anything wrong. if you want to get more earn from another example photos or referrals.

I have noted that some times, if we spent more time, mylot makes it for the next day, so for the moment forget ur money just make sure u get points, surely mylot will not waste ur points, it must be some formula going on for the day, replying is the fastest way to get points, if you want more points just reply to other's discussions

I started off gangbusters my first week. Even made $3 one day. Since then? Steady decline. I made .68 yesterday. I posted pics galore, some in my interests, some not. I posted quality responses and topics. I'm doing much better over at payposter.com. http://www.payposter.com/index.php?refer=Melizzy That's my link if you wanna sign-up. They payout whenever you ask as long as you have a certain number of points. I completed one FREE item and already have enough points to cash out.

Were your discussions to the point? Were they good in terms of quality? Were your comments relevant to the answer you got? Even if the answers to the above are yes , do not lose hope. and 1.84$ is not a small amount. hang around here for sometime and you will learn the tricks over here. Referrels are the best way to earn money in here as for every referrel u do , 25% of his earnings are yours. And please make sure your photos are relevant to the topic /discussion for which you post it.

I think it's harder to make money on here than I thought at first. It seems like the best way to make money is by referring people and writing meaningful posts. I think if the poster rates your discussion with a plus it helps too. myLot doesn't tell anyone the formula for payouts so no one is exactly sure how it works.
