How do you earn money in myLot?

October 19, 2009 10:27pm CST
when I first asked this, everyone said that I need to post discussions and add comments to existing discussions. They even told me that I could check the balance at 9-10am. However, though I have posted about a number of stuff, and reacted to existing posts, I noticed that I havent earned anything yet. How does this really work and how much are you supposed to earn? And what does the number beside my name mean? Thanks in advance!

The main way to earn here is to participate in discussions. Start new discussions, but make sure that you're responding to people who take the time to reply to you to maximize what you can earn from each one. Upload photos you've taken to interest categories or discussions you've started. You only earn for your own participation, so even if you start a hugely popular discussion, you'll only earn a few cents if you don't take the time to actually discuss things with people who've replied. Earnings update once every day. MyLot is based somewhere out of Kansas in the United States. I think the daily cutoff time is midnight Central time, but I might be wrong. Everything you earn in a day will post to your earnings page the next morning, usually around 8-9am Central time. Depending on your time zone, though, it could be a completely different time of day for you. Take a look at the bottom of the earnings page; it shows when the earnings were last updated for the entire site, and that can give you an idea of when to expect the next update. MyLot has never said that there's a certain amount you're supposed to earn for everything. It really all depends on how much you do. The more you post, the more you earn. It also seems like better quality posts will get you a bit more than posts that are short or poor quality. The number next to your name shows how active you've been. You get a point when you reply to a discussion or leave a comment on a response someone else left on a discussion, for a maximum of two points for each discussion you participate in. I don't think you get anything for starting a discussion. Watching your number can let you know if you've had something deleted. MyLot doesn't tell you when they remove a discussion or response, but if your number goes down, it's a safe assumption to make.

Hey o0Tora0o thanks for that information! I thought there was a set price for every response or discussion you made. I even urged a colleague to sign up so I can earn a referral fee. I hope my earnings update in a while :)

I think we can earn from three method, that is: Participation, Referrals and complete tasks. From that three method, I have already earn from Participation. It like Commenting and make some Discussion Topic, but I'm not really sure how much we earn from one commenting or make topic.

Just comment, comment, comment, respond, respond, respond, and discuss, discuss, discuss. Comment continuously to a person on the subject of the discussion or veer off subject a little, but just have fun. Also, the earnings may not update at 9-10 Am for you depending on where you live. Mylot says around Noon Central Time in the US they will update. Sometimes it varies, for me it's around 10:00 Am but can take as long as 1 PM if not later. Just be patient! Have fun, and don't forget to visit the other sections besides discussions here on mylot!

hello macleto, you sure, you haven't check your reference and put some information there? well, earning at first, it ain't that easy. when i came here the first time last year, all i did was response to a lot of discussions in other users but my agenda there was to reached 500 post, and then i was like posting fifty to one hundred post a day that made me earned almost two dollars. but that's in the past but it still works, the difference is that you got to respond and comment to as many discussions as you can. at least try thirty every day. i dunno about task because i hated. referrals are hard to find, most specially active ones. good luck with you.and welcome to mylot.

the first day i signed up here in mylot, i first did 1 task to see how fast my earning would appear and guess what after they reviewed my tasks not more than an hour my earning appeared immediately. after that i replied to some posts and then the next day when i signed in i saw that my earnings is updated. my referre told me that earning per post depends on the quality of your posts. sometimes they would also delete it if it is out of context. the number beside your name is the number of how many you posts already. i suggest you try to complete tasks also if you want to earn more.that is how im doing. but try to complete task that you are interested in.

I do not get much time to surf on the net so from time to time I just post questions so that I get many responses. The task are so difficult and time consuming that's why I haven't attempted any. I think you get paid when adding a picture in your discussion and try to post as many questions as possible

So, a picture is required for a discussion? I have tried posting a picture of myself for the profile page but I havent it doesnt show.

hi macleto, first of all welcome to mylot. To earn here there are following ways 1) post discussion and then always reply to responses you get if you get any. 2) post on discussions started by others..try to give atleast 4 line long answer. 3) get referrals who are active 4) do task. the number beside ur name is the number of discussions you have responded to started by other person. so it is 21 in front of your name means u have responded to 21 different discussions. If you have posted 1 line responses chances are you havent earned anything. Keep coming here and do read mylot interest discussions carefully and you would understand all about this site in couple of days.

Whatever you post here or discuss here that has to be a quality writing. Preferably go for little elaboration in your writtings. just one or two sentence may not be much helpful to you, what i felt with my short tenure at myLot. follow the rules of Dos and Donts of myLot. you will get a perfect navigation of writting. At the same time try to some tasks also. those are helpful. Happy myLotting.

Ways to make money on mylot...respond to discussions have more friends if you have more friends you will get more disucssions so you can respond to as many a discussion as possible, do not post links as this will lead to spamming and your discussion might get deleted and your earnings might also get deducted and do not attract people saying you found a site which pays good and ask them to be your referrals this might also lead to the discussion getting deleted, always keep reading the guidelines, start a discussion if it is good so you will see more people respond to your discussion and you thus get good friends too never forget to rate others disussions too you see a + - ! the + denotes that the discussion was good - denotes that it was not upto the mark ! denotes that you want to report abuse. The number next to your name denotes that many discussions or responses you have made. If you cross 100 mark you will get a star, 200 will give you emotion smiles and 500 will give you the copy paste option on mylot. I hope there are some valid points in here that could make you feel comfortable regarding earnings on mylot. Last but not the least, never discuss your earnings with anyone and always take advice from members who have more number of discussions (the numbers next to their names) so you will know how to earn more on mylot. Have a nice day and happy mylotting...smiles...thanx
