i have heard and read about people making money online just by sittnig at thei homes but i dont trust them .clearly i think that if someone can earn a substantial income in home by just working on the computer then whats the use of going to offices and managing ou businesses to endless hours ., but in the recewnt time i ahve met some confident people who are just s o confident about it that they are willinigly leaving thei regular jobs to persue this online money making.though i dont have any intentions like that but still i would like to know that is there any truth to this.if it is then its really a good idea for while to give it some time .the if it works out .,...lets seee

There are countless ways to make money at home using the internet. None of the "real" money-makers are easy; they are all work; and most people spend several hours a day just as other do outside of home. Some of the most profitable ways is to run an online business of your own. You will most likely NOT make money using "money-making" sites such as doing surveys or writing on mylot, unless you are willing to give up all hope of free time, sleep, and friends. Depends on where you live, too. Here is the US I know several people who make their living with an ebay store, selling stuff on Amazon, freelance writing for online websites, etc. Whatever you do, never pay anyone money in order to make money - even it it's not a scam, it's not worth finding out. Don't look for easy online solutions because they don't exist - anyone who tells you differently is wrong. There is no difference between sitting in an office for 8 hours or in front of your own computer for 8 hours to make the same amount of money, except that you can do the latter in your pyjamas. That is the most realistic view of online money. Some people make a lot more, because they worked hard and created an "online identity" for themselves or their business/brand. Out of the tens of thousands of users on the web, don't expect to become one of these lucky ones (although it's of course still worth shooting for).

hi, it seems that you are beginning to have doubt on your own initial belief but you still don't trust your own instinct now that you have met people who did it. Isn't the earnings from MyLot a proof to you that it is possible. The difference is in How Much? and not Yes or No? There is a REAL market in the Internet. You should surf more before joining any, to have a feel. There are LOTS of free sites that pay. But the real money comes in only in those that do a proper business which needs time and effort. Put in less effort, you get peanut. Put in more effort, you will be rewarded. Same as the REAL world those most people only knows.

There are alot of ways to make money on the internet.. You have to find what suits you and your needs for the product you want to sell..a product that is duplicatable.. a product that everyone can use. I work with a group of internet marketers that help people that want to start a home business. Ranges from 26 years in the business to newbies that don't know what to do... We have just opened it up for anyone that wants to learn how to market your product and business. You dont have to do it alone... Like some businesses you sign up and then then tell you to look in your back office. They are not willing to help you to succeed. We help you whether you join one of our businesses or have your own and you dont know what to do.. We have a 24/7 live support and conference room.. And on Saturday we will start training anyone that wants to learn.. You have to make a commentment to yourself if you want to do this,and then just do it.. Just don't sit there and say why cant I find someone to sign up under me.. You have to work your business. And you will not make 1,000 over nite or in a month.. But if you work hard at it, it will come.. Its just like starting a business at a store.. How do you bring in custmers to your store? By adveristing... Same way with online business.. You need to adverties yourself and not your product... If you want more info go to my mylot website and there is a link for the training..As I said this is free training and no pressure and no credit cards.. Just free training on how to market your online business.

I have been supporting my family alone as a divorced Mom since 2003 working from home. Truth number one: If you believe you can't do it, you won't. Truth number two: What I am doing right now is generating traffic to my website which in turn generates loads of affiliate income just for people "going there". When I am not doing this, I am working on SEO, doing freelance writing, taking "for hire" positions with others who want to buy content, website or graphic design, etc. Also, when I am not doing any of those things, I am working for a REAL employer who hires people from home. There about 70 work at home employers I know of right now who have been around for years, employing myself and many of my net friends, paying substantial money on time. Truth number three: When people say things like, "look at MyLot for proof that you can make money online" they are serving ONLY to reinforce the idea that work at home money is a fantasy. Who in their right mind can LIVE ON $30 a month income? Come on people, MyLot is great for networking and earning a few bucks here and there but people seeking internet income have mortgages and car payments. Thirty bucks a month or so is NOT gonna cut it...not in the United States anyway. Truth number four: There is NO SUCH THING as a "get rich quick" thing you can join, buy, implement. Do not ever pay for a job or list of jobs. Best wishes in your search. If you believe, you will achieve... Smiles, DL

u can make money via online... but it can't make you rich.. those site that offer lots of money in a week n ask for payment before join their program is SCAM! so be careful.. make money online just to get extra pocket money..

I'm making money online also. I also have a regular job but I'm planning on leavin once I get enough to get by for six months. I already make 2 times what I make at my regular job just working part time online so imagine what I could do just working exclusively from home.

Hi alcazar, I haven't found one that I'd quit my day job for yet. While I'm not earning a "substantial" income from home yet, I'm working towards it a little at a time. It does take time to build up earnings in just about anything you do. Try not to fall for any of the get rich quick sites though, they rarely work. It takes time, patience, persistance & consistancy but it can be done if you can spare the time. I definately recommend trying something you can do just part time to begin with.

Well I know that I've made about 300.00 in the last week online-it can be done but not without putting some effort into it-when I started two 1/2 years ago I was lucky if I made a dollar a week, but perseverance paid off in a big way..keep plugging away at it and you'll catch on it's really not hard at all.

For most people it is impossible. Unless you have some original ideas that will bring people to your site. Most of these "blogs" out there are 100% garbage that look and read like the writer was in third grade. For a real website that is profitable and socially relevant...go to www.arthurshall.com.

Working from home on net can give lots of money if the right channels are known and putting hardwork into the right direction.

hey, its true people are making money online but its not only through responding to discussion or by starting new discussion.. There are many online game sites, online share market site and many more... So depending on your profession and interest you can make money either way.. but thing is you need not to work physically as you are working in factory. You don't need to hear from your boss.. that's an advantage.

To tell you the fact i too was a little bit curious about it. But when i started i realised it is for real. though i have not make enough money but if you can put something into it like a little time and money, you won't need any office work.

I feel there is not much of income on the net .... I would say a full time job is at any time a better source of income.... Online incomes are less for the same time compared.... If anybody knows any better sites let us know....
