myLot and Triond are complimentary

May 20, 2007 4:51pm CST
I noticed that myLot and Triond may be complimentary services for people that enjoy writing, sharing idea and earning some money in the process. In myLot you get paid to participate in discussions in a forum-like environment -- in Triond you get paid for articles that you post. myLot is great for on-going, casual discussion -- Triond is more suitable to items that are less casual and can be of interest to a large number of web surfers. myLot requires less effort. In Triond you need to spend time to construct a well written piece. In myLot you get paid basically according to the number of posts -- in Triond you get paid according to the number of page views to your articles. In myLot you earn the income almost immediately when you post -- in Triond income is earned on a continuous, but maybe slower pace, as long as your articles continue to generate page views. However, income in Triond can be much higher over a few months. One disadvantage of Triond is that it requires very good English as not every item is approved for publication. This is different from myLot that has this wonderful international bring-everyone-together approach. Overall, people that enjoy myLot may enjoy Triond and people that enjoy Triond may enjoy myLot.

How does the payment system work for Triond? have you earned as yet and received cash? If you have tried helium how does it compare is it more lucrative?

The payment you get is 50% of the revenues Triond makes from advertizing. They have a system in which you can track how your articles are progressing. Payments are made to your PayPal account with a minimum of $0.50. I get paid on a monthly basis.

I'd be interested in knowing how Triond compares with Helium. Articles for Helium supposedly have to be approved, but I've seen so much awful stuff there that I wonder. Or is the approval process new, and I'm just seeing bad stuff that was posted before it went into effect? Have you actually written for Triond, long enough to have an opinion about what it's like and whether you do get page views? I'm tired of signing up for writing sites that look good until you actually get into them.

Triond also has an approval process. It takes 1-2 days to get published. My experience is that you get page views that build up slowly but in a steady manner. If you create links to your articles or promote them in other ways (for example on Digg), it may speed up the rate of traffic to your article. I think the great thing about this approach is that your content works for you continuously so if you've written a popular article, you can expect a steady stream of revenues for many months without having to do anything about it. I think that out of 100 articles, you will always have several that will be "hits" and generate a lot of page views, while the rest will be less popular. THis is the natural distribution of these things. To be successful you need to have quality content and a little bit of luck -- nothing new under the sun here.

You are correct, I belong to both. Triond through which I have published several Articles already. Style and Writing is important with that Service, however you can write on a wide variety of Interests as well. Another wonderful Site you might wish to check out in the same general Principal is Helium. If you do, look up my Profile : Shalamar. Good luck.

It's amazing just how many sites there are online now that allow you to make some kind of income online. I think it's great that you just reviewed two more.

You're right, I've loved how casual myLot is in terms of how casual the setting and the conversations are. I've never heard of Triond before, though, which surprises me because I'm floating all over the place all the time. Thanks for the information!

I have not been a member with Triond long enough to know if it is really a good money earner or not. It is similar in practice to Helium; you write articles here as well, and are again paid for page views. However, at Helium, the articles only need to be approved if it is a new topic that you are starting. I have one article at Triond so far, and have made a few cents.
