Are you making the money you expected you would be by now online?

I've been making money online for the past year and a half. It has become rather fun for me as well. I especially enjoy finding about new and easy ways to earn from totally FREE websites. Right now I earn from several websites: 1. SendEarnings 2. InboxDollars 3. Neobux 4. Gather 5. Mylot 6. Hits4pay 7. Winster 8. Swagbucks 9. REwardsTV 10. YouData and several more. The really exciting part for me is the ability to cash out at several of them at one time within a given month. It really gets exciting to be able to do additional things outside of your family budget. That's why I'm making money online, what are some of your reasons? Are you members with any of the sites I mentioned above?

Well, we are obviously all members of #5 - myLot. . But I'm personally also a member of Inbox Dollars, Swagbucks, and RewardsTV (although I'm not active there at all). I'm still relatively new to making money online (I started learning about it back in November of last year), so each time I discover a legitimate way to earn money online - and each time I receive a check from "working" online - I'm stunned! It's amazing. I only wish I would have known about these opportunities sooner. A lot of people say that because they're not earning hundreds per month - that their time online is wasted. I don't feel this way at all - better something than nothing, right? Every little bit counts. You made a list of where you're currently earning, so I guess I'm going to follow suit, and make a list of my own. 1. Treasure Trooper 2. Swag Bucks - I'm actually pleasantly surprised with them. It's easy to get referrals, and it's super easy to win a Swag Buck. I'm saving up for my iPhone. 3. Firehouse Offers 4. Opinion Outpost 5. Valued Opinions 6. Lightspeed Consumer Panel 7. Survey Savvy Those are just to name a few!

I as well really like swagbucks. Referrals are extremely easy and your bucks increase fast. I already have an Iphone but I was waiting for them to get the new Iphone 3g s on there. I was also thinking about getting a nintendo DS but keep in mind that you may find it less swagbucks if you buy the amazon gift cards and combine them for your prize at amazon instead of buying through swagbucks!

maezee you are so right. It is much better to be earning a little something than nothing at all. If I were just surfing the net, or watching TV, playing video games, or listening to music or watching movies I would not be making anything at all. I earn here, and I am entertained. I also learn about other ways to earn, so it is all very good.

I;ve been on most of those.. for 2 years or more... and still don't make much. Granted it is at least something and I keep trying, but just don't have the income that I want and can't seem to figure out how to make increase

If you like hits4pay you'll like their other site called dealsncash. You can view my website in my profile for a video tutorial and ref link if you like. Dealsncash is the same script as hits4pay and owned by the same co. The difference is you earn .02 per referral on one level only. Also cash out is 30 bucks and bonus is 5 bucks. I'm sure you know that over a period of time you can cash out with these sites for much more money then you can earn at lower cashout sites. Hope this helps and keep earning!

Yeah, I've heard of dealsncash, but I haven't been sold on them yet.

That's good that you found some sites that you are successful with. Can you tell us about how much you earn each month from these sites. Are your earnings coming from referrals?

1. SendEarnings $30 minimum payout 2. *InboxDollars $30 minimum payout 3. *Neobux $2 minimum payout (earned every 3 months) 4. *Gather $25 monthly 5. Mylot $10 monthly 6. *Hits4pay $25 minimum payout 7. Winster $5 amazon giftcard 8. Swagbucks $10 amazon giftcard monthly 9. REwardsTV $10 in giftcards (depends on which one you choose) 10. *YouData $1-$2 weekly *indicates the sites I have referrals on I have very few referrals, so most of my time is investing in doing things that I can simply earn on my own, as I've come to the conclusion that some folks think they want to earn money online, but after they see the real time commitment, they slack off and then whatever time it took you to train them, they cause your referral income to decrease, all because they were really looking for a GET-RICH-QUICK-SCHEME verses something that they can use on a monthly basis in order to have a little extra on the side.

I am a member of all the sites you mentioned above except rewardstv. How is that one any good? Are you a member of moola? That is one of my new favs. If not would you like to do a referral swap?

I'm a member of moola as well! Thanks though. RewardsTV is a easy survey filling site. If you watch a movies of TV, then they basically ask you questions on shows you've previously seen. I have a friend that cashes out on one of their gift cards at least once a week. I'm only doing it once a month as I'm not quite as active as they are. But it's cool. Let me know if you're interested in taking a look at it.

That's a good question. I've spent a lot on internet marketing stuff and haven't really seen a great payoff, so I decided to get back to basics and try things like mylot and morachat. I only got onto mylot because I wanted to build backlinks as mylot has a PageRank of 5. I'm still experimenting here but I'm beginning to enjoy this experience.

I'm sure if any of us have been online earning that they have lost money like you have on those "quote unquote" GURUS. LoL. They are gurus at ripping people off that's for sure. Good method on the pageranking using mylot.

I like to believe that some of the gurus do bring value to the table. Take for instance, Ed Dale's Thirty Day Challenge, which is about to start again & which is free. It's all about earning your first dollar online. My problem is going thru the program because I'm doing all these other projects.

I decided to make money online because I wanted to stay home and be my own boss. I'm not a member of any of the sites that you have mention. I'm a tarot cards reader and I also have a art degree. That's how I'm making my online money. I've done better in the past, it's the economy that is hurting all of us. But it will get better.

It's not really easy to earn online since it depends on a lot of factors. Sites go sour, they turn scam and sometimes they dont pay when you ask for payments. I have been doing this for the past year as well and I noticed that mylot was the only one which paid out in time. NeoBux is also a great site and I'm happy that I found about it, but sadly dont have many referrals on it. So earn only some money now and then. The most paying to me has been Helium.com, but they closed for Non US Citizens. Really sad. bourne

I am very new to making money online and still need to do a lot of research on the subject. A question I do have for everyone is how much money are you actually making using free Internet methods and do you have a job to supplement this income?

Wasn't expecting to earn anything online so yes, I am earning more than I thought I would be earning... I am mainly using survey sites and I use a few on your list too, my blog link has them listed. I am making a few bob here and there and the vouchers are coming in pretty handy with savings

Wow, congrats! I have been making money online since 2007 but I must admit that I am not that happy with my earnings right now.. I used to make over hundred dollars before but when my blogs page ranks dropped down to 0, i don't get to receive lots of blog opportunities anymore.. good thing, i have discovered some legitimate sites like neobux and mylot.. currently, i am working on some articles but i am not sure if i am going to be paid or not.. i'll keep my fingers crossed.. =)

hey hdjohnson..how are ya ? i joined few of the sites u mentioned above too, like inboxdollars, neobux, and of course mylot lol..and if it's okay for me to ask, how does the inboxdollars work ? coz honestly, untill now i can't really understand how can i earn money from there if there's no surveys available for my country, indonesia ? :sadlook: i wish i can take a survey, but mostly they not exist for my country indonesia..hiks.. lol personally, i don't really take this online income as my main income, it's some short of extra saving actually. but my main reason is so i don't have to spend most of my time doing facebook or hi5, or anything when i dont really get nothing as an income. i love being in facebook and hi5, but i just cant spend too many time again there, coz i am working now.. happy mylotting..

I'm currently not making as much as I originally wanted to by now but I still have a ways to go before I can make the 5.00 USD a day I wanted to by the upcoming of this school year. This month, I'm working really hard on myLot and other sites to get 90.00 USD to go Golden on Neobux and from there I will be using all the sites again to pay for referrals. From there I will go Ultimate and hopefully will be making more than the 5.00 USD I originally wanted to make. I'd give it another month or so before I start making good money online. I'm on Neobux, like you mentioned.

Thanks for letting us share the sites on how you make money online. I'm actually a member of Neobux and this site, of course. I work online as a part-time for extra cash since my regular job isn't enough for me.

My fiance and I started making money online to help save for our wedding. Now we are making money online for that same reason plus just to save. We do additional thins outside of the house to make a few bucks, and it helps. We've also applied at different places but thus far none has hired. Sorry I went a little off topic. I have been members of all except for Hits4Pay and I'm not sure about winster, and youdata.
