Tasks and Availability

United States

Am I the only one who logs into the tasks section, checks for available tasks and ALWAYS finds that there are no tasks available? I'm getting frustrated. What does it take to earn a little more here at myLot. I enjoy posting but I'd really like to earn faster. Please help. Thanks.

Hi there..I find that you have to check several times a day. Lately I have been finding them just before supper time. I have done 49 so far and they are a great way to make extra money..I have made payout in one day this time. The writing tasks are worth either $2 or $4 for a 500 word article. If you find some, make sure you use spellcheck as they are extremely fussy. It will get returned even for forgetting a space after a period. Good luck in finding some tasks..SOmetimes there are none for days. When they are there, they do not last long. I usually accept several and then go back and do them

Great advice, sandymay48. That's very encouraging news. Thank you also for the advice on spellcheck. I will try to check availability more often. I've actually been doing that but only on certain days. It's time to step things up, chop, chop!!! All the best to you.

If you really looking out for task, then go for mturk. There are lots of task daily. About 45 thousand tasks are available. So, that will be a great option for you.....

I have not had a task available yet. I check several times a day, but still never had one. I keep seeing people say they are getting $2 or even $4 for some tasks. That would be a great increase in pay compared to the few cents we get for these discussions. I like mylot and I love interacting with everyone, but I can't devote all my time to this because the pay is not that much. I have to spend more time working the sites that actually give out tasks to make more money.

I hear ya. But since this discussion was started several days ago, myLot enhanced the tasks so we'll see how things go with it. I'm pretty hopeful though. It's being re-built so that there are more tasks that will be available for all myLot members. Keep checking it out.

A lot of the time when I check there are no available tasks. I have never really had the problem of other people beating me to accepting the tasks though when I do see any up. Although usually by the time I do most of the available slots are gone. I mean like there's less than five to go before all the slots are filled. Just keep checking and sooner or later you're bound to see some tasks available.

Thank you DarthJustice, I'll do that. Being persistant is key to anything I suppose.

Yeah, actually I have got same impression, i don't mind working more and doing something with more dedication but i expect more earnings at same time... i guess it's gona take long time to get a really lot of money to earn here I am afraid.
