Some people confuse me. They tell you they want to make an easy buck so I tell them about mylots or the other places to make money online. You give them a referral and they do nothing. Or they sign up and do nothing. I am almost to the point of not trying to help people anymore. It gets very frustrating. Why are people like that? Seems if they wanted to make a few bucks they would be willing to work for it.

I've talked to a lot of friends about mylot and most are saying "Oh yeah, great! that's nice, I'll try it" but up to now no one has ever signed up yet. Maybe they just don't have the time. So I guess it's only the rich and famous people like us (LOL) have the luxury of time. As I type this response,I thought of two more people who might get interested. Cheers!

I know exactly where you are coming from, I've now got 10 people referred under me who have all basically taken the time to sign up, enter all their details and then nothing! What is the point in signing up in the first place, at least give the site a go! If you don't like it then fair enough but at least TRY! You know you may just like it, but no they sign up and that's it, they've vanished! I wish there was a way of deleting referrals that sit there and are as about as useful as chocolate teapots!

I think a lot of people just like to talk about things instead of actually taking action. This applies to a whole range of things in life, not only making a few dollars. Plus, myLots might simply not be the thing for them - so give them a break, I think. Ultimately, it's their loss.

Most of us always like talking about what we want to do in life maybe because we never do useful things or use time constructively.That way we facade our inner stained side by making people believe we are actually worth respecting.

I think part of it has to do with all the hype on the internet, claims of making six figure incomes over night or the opposite all the scams where people have invested time or money or both only to get nothing in return. I read someplace awhile back that only 1 in 20 referrals are going to actually develope into something. The best way to up those numbers is to pre-sell them before they even sign up. Show them the MONEY - they will be much more likely to believe what you say when you can show them you are really doing it.

Thats very true but I have done that with a few and still they dont bite. Sometimes I think I should exaggerate how much money I make, like the ones who say make 500 a day. lol. But I always tell them exactly how much I make. I think that throws them off. lol

the reason why they are like that coz they are always in a hurry to earn quickly. And maybe they don't need much coz they are not trying. In your part, you should have to accept them as they are. As long as you have given them links and tried to share your experiences in money aspect then that would be great... good day!

some people are just lazy. they want to get instant money even without doing anything. even if you tell them the benefits you get from mylot, they won't try it since they'll say that they don't have to stay on the computer and discuss issues and exchange ideas. and they just want instant money without hard work. so, don't mind them. atleast you offered to help them.

You said it, people are lazy. They dont want to work for their money. They expect it to just pop up in front of them

Yes, it confuses me too. I have tried to tell some about it who won't even go to the site and see what it is about! Then I referred some who read the site, saw my earnings (I showed them) and they still didn't join. Some have joined and aren't very active, but that is because they are so busy at their real jobs. Oh well, I'll keep trying!

Well at least they are somewhat active better than not active at all. lol Thanks

I think you answered your own question...they want to make an easy buck. But they don't want to actually have to do anything to earn it... Just keep trying to get more referrals. Sooner or later you'll hit upon some people that will come through. Hang in there...lol I think we all have the same problem.

some people just dont want to take the time and earn online. in my case i love it. i have had a hard time getting referrals too, but i'm not worried. it's there loss. i've not had anyone sign up yet. :( some people just dont want to work for their money. they'd rather sit around and get paid for doing nothing than to put their opinions out there and earn it.

Now don't get me wrong now. offering help to money making is great. But if your offering people to sit on a computer and make pennies. Come on now. I have a room mate and he is looking for ways to earn money. He won't dare do this mess I am doing. I also don't blame him. Look how long you have to post to make .50. if you have a way I could make money faster than this let me know. I am posting here and http://www.dormcheck.com/register.php?refer=sharon johnson and I am hoping for the best. But honestly I have no better offers. My sales on my website are so slow. as with my ebay sales. But golly I'll love another site to make dollars not cents.

people want something fornothing these days. unless ur a lucky b*stard n u win the lottery, you gotta work for money, a lot of ppl still think theres a way of gettin it for free. nothins free in this world! even if it seems free, theres always a catch!

I agree with you. I had tried to refer some people and had no takers until the next email that mentioned what I made last month. That got a few interested anyways. I find though even with friends if you tell them verbally all about it they are more likely to do it. I think we get so much junk mail and other stuff in our inbox that we delete a lot without paying much attention to it.

Yes all this happend actually this is the nature of human being that they wan money but don t know how, and when u or any one else tell them do it as I did they try to grab the oppertunity but ahh soon they feel that they r not fit for that. And they leave it. Question is if u tell some one or not help any one or not. Yes u tell some one not every one. Stop for a while carefully examin if he or she will do it or just he/she wan money without even typing few words. Am sure u will not b frustrated any more and other will b benifitted too

My advise to you is not to let these people drive you crazy because some people are just plain lazy. People like that want to complain about not making any money, but they don't want to do the work to get them where they want to be financially. So don't let the lazy people throw a rain on your parade, I would suggest that you not put your pearls before swine and only offer your ideas to people who are serious about making extra money.

Well it is like someone asking for your advice and not considering it. I think sometimes people are just talking, and really aren't that serious about wanting to correct the issue. You also have people who really don't want it to be resolved, they just like having something to complain about.

Most people want easy money. They do not have the patience to wait until they can get their earnings. I also have many referrals who just joined but did not even post a single comment. You did your part, you invited them. Do not give up. You might refer someone who is really willing to do his/her part to earn some money.

well most of the people all wish to earn loads of money with no work.they like to sit still and see their purses grow.who wouldnt like that?well i dont mind referring people here.i have a couple of referrals who were here for a day i guess and they never turned up and i think i have sent the referreal e mail to more than a hundred people and i am not exaggerating about the number.i will keep sending the links and would only be happy if people join into my lot.

Those people you are talking about are the lazy people. They think that one day money will fall of the sky, and they just walk and grab it. If they really need and want that money, they will work for it, no matter what! But I guess that right now, they don't seem to care about money so much. When they change their mind, make sure you will be there, and give them your refferal link :)
