I tried many earn money programs online. I tried paid to click - Neo Bux is the one site that pays,but you have to wait an awfully long time Paid to read - No good site ever Paid to write - I wrote so many articles but received no money so far. So, I think all earn money online programs are junk except some affiliate programs. Anyone there to contradict me in honest sense?

Hi pkraj111, I've been working online for more than a year now so I can really disprove the notion that online earning is "just a junk". Try to join odesk and apply for openings there. Earn a lot of good feedback so you will have a lot of employers hiring you. I have also written academic papers and have earned from them. I also write freelance for other websites and I can still earn passive income from my articles. There are a lot of ways to earn online. You are just looking at the wrong sites, you know. The mindset that everything will be handed to you on a silver platter has to be changed for you to be successful online. You have to WORK for it.

hi cant help but notice that you are making money through odesk. So i cant resist to ask, i am a member of both odesk and frelancer but havent got any work yet. well, i dont bid much also. I just don't know how to start, especially in odesk. You will get interviewed by the employer right? And in freelancer, just get disappointed coz there are times i wanna bid but then i see most bidders have reviews already and me as a newbie had nothing. so can you just give me some tips or help me how to do it. thanks..

Same with you rona, I also have an odesk account, osdesk was the first online earning that I joined. No one can just guide me since I could not make myself proceed to the venue where we can be hired.

Hi Rona07, you have to be active on odesk by always checking on new jobs and making bids to the openings. There is a limit to the number of applications you can send - I think it's only 10 for the newbies. Take exams on odesk and you increase the number of applications you can send. Have yourself "odesk verified" and you maximize the number of applications you are allowed to have. I can now apply to at most 25 openings weekly - that's the max one is allowed to have. There are specific job openings which target newbies. You also have to have a low bid rate for you to be approved - I, for instance, started at $2.50 per hour. Once the employer accepts your application, you are invited for interview. Interviews are not really done face to face. Some employers are fine with just chat or email. It really depends. I even had a job opening where I was "invited" for interview, and I accepted the invite, then I was hired without any interview taking place. It is just a kind of formality so you should not feel intimidated. Not having any employee feedback can really make you insecure in applying, I know, but you should start somewhere right? And as I said, some employers are willing to hire newbies since they know that newbies are not really demanding since they are trying to earn feedback :) Just be patient with this and in time you will be able to gather up a lot of reviews. Maharlikah, I also had nobody to guide me before but nobody can stop one who is determined to learn. Just send me your questions here if you still have anything in mind. Good luck!

hi there. i had a neobux account but i discontinued it because of very low pay and so limited to. so now i am just focusing here on mylot. but i haven't come up with a good amount yet, i am planning to make it big before i cash it out and hopefully by that time, i can really get my money. but i saw in some discussions that there is like a charge for when you transfer the money? have you heard about that? or have you tried cashing your money/earnings already? i still have to get my paypal working. not yet done registering hehehe.

I have earned money online. I keep a monthly log of how much I earn and I help pay for the expenses around the home with this money. It is not like working a full time job and I do not make as much as I would working outside of the home but it helps and I am able to stay home with my young son. Earning money online is not entirely difficult but you will not make great amounts. I always concentrate on the free sites such as MyLot, InBoxDollars, SendEarnings, Gather and such places. I have not tried writing any articles for anyone and I doubt that I will. I am also a member of several survey companies and make money from them. It all depends on how hard you work and how long you work. Several people are members of groups and make quite a bit because they recruit and earn a % of what their recruits earn. This takes time, patience and a willingness to interact with the people you recruit and help them to earn. I am not a member of any affiliate programs either so I cannot offer any knowledge of them. Good luck with your earnings.

So I guess the few hundred dollars I've cashed out for the last few months are all junk, huh?

Actually, I only earn decent few $ with mylot. I have a lot of earning sites before I never succeed with them, some are not that friendly and I think I need someone to guide me to get through it.

I have been working online since 2009, with no other income, and can confirm that you can certainly earn a good amount of money on the internet. The thing that you have to remember is that everyone has different skills which they are able to use online, so what works for other people might not work for you. For example, I am a writer on Triond and earn the majority of my online earnings from there, however I know that a lot of other people struggle to manage to make ends meet if this is all that they're doing for the whole of their days. Just try things out and at some point you will no doubt find something that will work for you.

Earning online is not that much easy and same time it is not hard also. LOLZ !! It depends upon various factors. Your location, how many hours you can spend, your skill and above all your knowledge. I only can assure that you will earn but learn first. For the beginners I want to say, try GPT sites. It is quite easy and never spend before you get paid. Just follow this rule and you will not loose anything
