Are you planning to stay all the way with these online websites that pay you? For me they don't pay enough, I think that the key for making a decent ammount online is beeing independent. I have been thinking on setting a business online, there are a lot of virtual "things" that can be sold. For example, you can sell your writings yourself, or you can do traslation works, or join the world of entretainment business. Or my favourite: try em all and keep going with the most profitable. So, what are your ideas?

Well I agree to make good money online you need to break out and doing something independantly. My goal is to build up my own movie review website, featuring my own reviews to the point that it making decent money, although I have picked one of the toughest and over crowded niches to break. Once I have established myself with a popular website, I then plan to capitalize on it using my extensive movie knowledge to create a few e-books to sell online, with the overall goal of eventually having a book published in the future all of the back of the website.

It takes time to earn big online and it should be accompanied by hardwork and patience as well and I think that's the reason why most people fail because they don't usually strive hard. The return is big if someone knows how to wait but if not then its not for you.

I think same as you, it needs a lot of hardwork and patience. Also time is very important, specially at the start. I think most sites with high payout makes a lot of extra money since a big percentage of the members never reach payout.

Not really. Just stick with any reliable website and you'll eventually get paid if you keep working at it. I've been joining a lot of sites and working on them slowly and I've been starting to earn more steadily it's still not much. I've been joining sites on beenpaid.com so that way I know that they are legit and I will actually get paid. It does get a little frustrating sometimes but as long as I know that I'll get paid at some point in time I'm okay with it. It sucks when its a scam and you end up wasting your time.

I did same as you with my websites, and i managed to earn about 10 dollars in 2 months. You think 10 dollars in 2 months is success?

I know most people here don't like selling or promoting. But you guys, are you familiar with online network marketing? As I read the responses and comments here, I don't see any comment about online network marketing. Did you know that almost 10% of new millionaires created in the U.S. were from network marketing? They succeeded by building their network marketing teams with established network marketing companies. The beauty of network marketing is, you gotta build a team and not depend solely on your personal efforts. Working as team is always advantageous compared to working alone by yourself. I noticed most people here work hard, very hard, but never apply the principle of using leverage by sponsoring others to their business and build a downline team! Leverage is the thing that separates the entrepreneurs from employees. The truth is, in this world we live in, entrepreneurial path is closer to "destination wealth" than employment path. Now, for those negative people who are close-minded about network marketing thinking it's a form of pyramid scam, my answer is a big NO. No, it's not a scam. Why is it Warren Buffett, now considered the smartest investor the world ever known, and the richest man in the world (over-taking Bill Gates in the No.1 spot), he bought the network marketing company "Pampered Chef" seeing the potential of network marketing! Even well known authors like Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad Poor Dad), Donald Trump (Trump University), and Tonny Robbins (Robbins Institute) have all stated that home-based business and particularly network marketing will be the biggest growth industry of the next decade!

Thanks for your info abut network marketing. But i still dont get it fully, so, do you mean these pyramid or matrix websites where u get money mainly from referring other people right? This needs a lot of adversiting but i think it is really possible with experience. Also we have to find legit websites first, which i don't think there are many...

I actually work a total of 65 hours a week, so I definitely don't rely on what I earn online. If I did, we would've lost our house and we'd be poorer than ever within the first couple of months alone. However, I do earn enough online to be a good supplement to our income. We use it to buy things around holidays or to save up and pay any unexpected bills that might come our way (and trust me, there's a lot of those lately). While it's true that most sites don't pay very much (mylot being one of them compared to others), if you get into the right sort of websites then they pay ok. Certainly not what you might make elsewhere, but I can still earn $7 online in an hour sometimes, which is minimum wage here, so it's not that awful, either. It's just a matter of having the time and everything to dedicate to doing it.

7 dollars online in a hour? I think most of us can't reach that much, so you are doing very well online... Anyways its couldn't be enough for living

if you want to make a decent amount, then go for those that pay high. First you can sign up to survey sites where surveys are from $5 to $50 or higher a piece. If you can write, do web content and academic writing. I earn $350 a month from web content and academic papers pay around $60 per 1000 words. If you have talent in photo editing and web developing, you'll definitely get higher. Real job gives real pay, so we have to sweat it a little. :)

Of course, if you want to get a lot of traffic to your site you will need to promote it very intensively. But luckily there are a lot of ways to do it these days.

Internet doesn't pay as much, but it does bring some income for me. It helps in paying a lot of the unexpected expenditures. My plan is to keep the money earned from online in a separate place and save up. I have plans to make my own website, see I am saving money until the time a great business idea strikes the mind. But until then I am saving the money and looking for ways to earn more money from the internet. Plus if I am able to earn enough money this year, I might go a small trip with the online money.

Saving is ok, but we should try to make a progress and earn a bit more. Why not investing that little money you warned?

I think one you have to put a lot of work into it. So far I haven't found anything where you make a good income. So far I have been doing on-line surveys, mystery shopping, and here My Lot. I found My Lot you don't make a lot it seems I put in a few hours and I only make like 20 cents each time. I do enjoy popping in and seeing what people are talking about. I love to write and read people's answers. You learn things and it is interesting. I also love how people here are very helpful and share sites they also work on. I enjoy My Lot but I doubt I will every make any income from it. On a high note love talking to people and I get great feedback when I start a discussion. Good luck to you I hope whatever business you start you will be successful.

If you invest a lot of time and work for too little income, then it isn't worth it. Just let search for other ways!

I make good money online. My best money maker is tarot card reading. Second in line are my multiple online stores. I also have a few sites that provide literally a few bucks and as soon as I reach payout, I'm dumping them because my time can be better used else where. (I must of been out of my mind when I signed up with them) I have a few projects that I'm working on and they will provide income down the road. But I agree with you that a person needs to be independent and I will add that a person needs to be creative too. That doesn't mean in a artistic way either. You just got to be observant and use creative thinking and learn how to connect the dots/sites.

I can't really think of any other ways. mylot is one, and with slow earnings but it builds up. I share your sentiment about online business. I think if one is to succeed, business has to be the answer. Or joining affiliate programs that are profitable and can make money for the user in question.
