I've been a member here for quite a while and never reached payout. This month I am close and hopefully I will make it. I have been trying to post at least one discussion a day but I am finding that quite a few of them aren't getting any responses....I find this quite annoying! I have no idea exactly how long I have been here or how many posts I have made and I don't know how to work that out - any help on that would be great! Do you think it's easy to earn on mylot? I know I sure don't as I've been working at it for a long time and still haven't reached payout!

If you promise to sit down.... I will suggest you do what I do... and you might reach payout But first of all, who told you that you have to keep starting new discussions? I have started 2 this month and am already over payout. The rest of the time I spend commenting on the responses I have received on my discussions - that means ALL of my discussions, even the old ones - and responding on discussions by others and then commenting back to the original poster when they comment on my response. Isn't that what a discussion is all about? Discussing? Last month I started 4 in the whole month, I was away for a week and I almost reached double the minimum. Now don't get me wrong please, I'm not 'bragging' but I am trying to suggest that you also comment on the responses on your discussions and then go and respond on some others and THEN comment back when the discussion starter comments back to you. You will reach payout too

'Discussions I've responded too' but instead of wasting time counting them which will earn nothing, much better to post, post and post even more.

Thank you for your advice! I always comment back to people that respond on my discussions, and if they respond again I do too. I try to respond to as many discussions as I can but I have limited time as I have 2 & 3 year old boys so I am a busy mum. Thanks again, I will try to create more time when I can.

did you ever see the post about"would you stay here if there didn't pay us?"? most people aren't here to get rich but rather to chat about things or learn about thing that they might not have known about.

I have not seen that post, sorry. I am not just here for the money though - if I was I would have left long ago as I have been here a year and not reached payout once. I love the discussions and love to help people with things they don't know if I can...and in turn I love being able to ask about things I don't know or am unsure of and getting very helpful answers! Thanks for your response!

yes i agree with you about the pay out.so far i've reached a whole .62 and you know what they say"nobody gives you anything for free"but maybe a hard time or bs.sometimes you might not know something and somebody else might know a little something about it.and then there are times that you might know about something and somebode else doesn't know about it and you could help them.

It certainly is a great site to get help with things you don't know or aren't sure of, and also to help others. I get a great feeling of usefulness from here!

Hi toosh, first of all just forget about trying to figure out the exacts and go on posting. I am sure you will be able to reach payout if you post more.As for your discussions getting/not getting answers, do you take part in discussions posted by those members who take part in your discussions? it is like a chain reaction...

Hi kiran8! Thanks for your response and good advice! I try and respond to as many discussions as I can, but I don't have a lot of time as I have 2 preschool aged sons. I will have to try harder to find some time I think!

Hi toosh, I understand how it is when you have small kids, they are going to be a handful. Try to make the best of your time and hope you reach your goal as early as possible. All the best and happy mylotting

its not hard to earn in mylot, the secret to earn money fast is to respond as many discussions as you can..do not worry much of your discussions not getting many responses, what's important is you respond atleast 40 plus discussions in a day and when you answer make sure your not a one liner responder..it has to be minimum of 8 to 10 lines response..you can start trying it so you can reach payout this month.

Thanks for your response and tips! I have discovered through this discussion and others I have found that responding is the best way to earn, and I have been trying to do that as much as I can. I only have 25c to go to reach payout and I think I can make it! Thanks again!

Also toosh getting a few refferalls would realy boost your eranings ! I have many who i can refer here i think like 50 people i know from years gone by can do about 30 discussions per month ! And if they all do as i have seen them do before then i would get 10% of $50 each which would be $5 X 50 = $250! SO refer refer refer and watch your earnings grow ! However DO guide through my lot tell them waht is alllowed to do and what is not allowed to be done !

I have found getting referrals very hard, not many of the people I know are interested in things like this...but I am going to try harder and explain to them that it's a very interesting site & a source of great information! Thanks!

You really got to spend some time.posting and responding as much spare time as you have.i am at payout now the closer i get the more i seem to get more into it.dont give up my advise is just get into a groove each day and set a goal.i know its hard sometimes i get on here i dont have anything to post and sometimes no one has anything interesting i want to respond to.you will make more money faster if you add pictures.i made about 15 cents a day and i dont spend much time.Good luck and dont give up!!!!

At first I joined mylot to earn money, but I found that doesn't happen very fast so I just spent my time responding to discussions that interested me or that I thought I could help with. Now I am really trying to reach payout just so I have done it at least once.

I usually get little to no responses in discussions that I start. Of course some of them I get lucky with and get quite a few replies though. You can probably make payout this month if you try hard enough. If you want to have a really good shot, do as many of the tasks as you possibly can. The tasks are the primary reason I've reached payout in the past two months. Especially due to the tasks coming along, I think it's easy to earn on here. Maybe not a lot, but I do think it's easy to earn on here. But yeah, to get a lot or to reach payout, it can be a lot of work with just posting. I mean, before the tasks, it took me from September of last year to January to reach my first payout.

I have just completed one task and am awaiting the pay for it, I am in the process of doing another right now. I have never used the tasks before as I generally don't have time but I think I am going to have to do this when I have time as it seems to be the easiest way to earn some money towards payout. Thanks
