MyLot Description

MyLot is an online forum community that has a ‘paid to post’ program built in. The site has discussions across all different subjects and categories. You can earn money with myLot by posting messages on the site, from asking questions, replying to questions and networking with other people on the site.

MyLot Detailed Overview

I recently came across a new concept that really piqued my interest. The site myLot pays you for partaking in their online community. I’ve seen other ‘get paid to’ programs but this really stood out for me because of the quality of the site. The site isn’t filled with spam comments, was active, and had a good interaction going on between members.

You can make money with myLot by asking questions, answering questions, including images, and referring new members to the community. The site doesn’t reveal how much you earn for your activity because they don’t want anyone to abuse this information. Of course, this is a double-edged sword as you don’t know how much you’re being paid for your efforts.

Let me talk about each money making activity in myLot. Starting a discussion and asking questions can really be one of the more profitable posts you can make. If your discussion receives more responses, you will earn more for your post.

When you’re posting answers to questions, you earn more money if they are of quality and not the typical one line responses. You should try to make your responses at least a paragraph or more. The goal is quality, not quantity. Including images in your posts also help you earn more per post. Just remember that you will have to put up a relevant image.

To top it off, you earn 25 percent of the earnings from the members you refer to myLot. This can really add up big time because you earn 25 percent for as long as they are a member, rather than for a certain time period. This will give you more earnings than anything else.

If you want to promote affiliate offers or your business, you can set up a profile with links and banners to the sites you want to promote. By being visible in the appropriate categories, other members will check out your profile and click on your links.

There are some rules which you must follow if you don’t want to get banned from the site. You cannot spam the site with ads, spam with poor responses, be rude to other members and talk about your myLot earnings. Some people post thinly disguised adverts, but that can get you banned so I suggest you avoid trying to cheat the system. These rules keep the quality of the community and it actually is a good thing.

MyLot has a payout threshold of $10 and pay you on the 15th of every month for the previous month’s earnings. The $10 limit may not seem hig,h but you have to spend a good amount of time for you to reach the $10. Some users report it took them a month.

MyLot Reputation

There are mixed reviews about myLot. Users have made money with the site and have gotten paid for their posts. However, the site doesn’t tell you how much you earn for your posts. The biggest complaint about the site is that you have to spend a lot of time posting in order to earn a decent amount of money. Most people who gave the site positive feedback are people who enjoy spending time in message boards. I recommend you use myLot if you enjoy online discussions and want a way to make some side money enjoying your hobby.

Experience with MyLot is BitterSweet

I have been a member of this website since February 2007. Yet another website I came across through Project Payday. I came to love this website, not only because they paid me to talk (especially since the return is so low), but I found tremendous information about many websites, tools, and services that people had actually tried and used.

Now for the downside. Over the past two years I have seen a decline in the quality of moderation at this site. Things are spelled out very clearly in the TOS, yet admin doesn't seem to use that all the time when it comes to deleting discussions. It seems like all that is necessary is for one or a few people to report a discussion as being against the TOS, and it is deleted without review. While there are many other posts that are blatantly against MyLot's TOS, yet seem to stay on the site forever.

The members there have repeatedly asked for a better rating system that will not benefit trolls, yet we never get a response. Meanwhile, all a person has to do is offend the wrong person in MyLot, and they can get a group of people together to negatively rate all your discussions and comments, causing your rating to plummet along with your earnings, and possibly to get banned from the site altogether.

Admin says repeatedly that they only have so many moderators, they cannot possibly keep up with all the members, and I actually believed that until IM Report Card came along. This is a good site to join, granted, but it's either cast your care about your rating to the wind and grow tough skin, or only make milquetoast comments and discussions that no one can disagree with. I's the only way to stay active in this community.

The Best of Breed Community

My membership in MyLot came by a serendipitous experience and I could say that it's one of the best communities I've encountered so far. I have earned quite a few by accomplishing tasks most of the time, which have become my favorite section. I have also found new friends in the discussions from all sorts of interests that could fill a whole A4.

Some things I have noticed which I think is quite similar to almost any community is the redundancy of topics and questions which are just but a search away. Not only that, the people you see in MyLot are almost always in MyPage5, IMRC, Microworkers, Neobux and all the other money making sites. The place is so viral that it's actually a staging arena for many, like me, to try out new money making programs.

The community has a very rich culture because almost every country is accepted. The rules are not so strict or probably there are just too many members to monitor that MyLot can't cope up with the number.

For the past few months that I have been with MyLot, I can only say good things. I know there was one time when a payment scare was rumored, but it all proved all the trolls wrong. MyLot has been paying on time all the time based on my personal experience. And I would certainly recommend it to anyone who is into writing. Although most writing tasks are now six paragraphs, it still is better than Microworker task offers.

MyLot not the best

I signed up with MyLot in January, thinking it was another money making opportunity. I regret signing up- it has become a waste of time for me.

Up until a few months ago you could get about one cent per posting; recently, I have only been getting one cent for 5 or 6 posts.

Cash out is $10 through Paypal. MyLot has a good reputation of paying people, however, the problem I see now is that you are paid so little per post it will be real hard to ever reach that $10 cash out. I have only made it to the $7 mark so far.

Additional problems I have with MyLot include the fact you cannot edit or delete your posts. Also MyLot is quite strict and will regularly delete posts that have any complaints about MyLot, as well as many posts about making money online. While I appreciate that to a certain degree, I think they go too far.

I don't really recommend MyLot, but if you have a lot of time and are ready to talk about silly subjects for the most part then this place may be worth a try.

My most favorite site ever

I have been a member of Mylot for a little over a year and have received 2 payments already. I am working on my third, which I should get this month. With Mylot you get paid for discussing your interests. You also get paid for doing tasks. Tasks is where you write paragraphs about a certain product or website. Sometimes you get lucky and can sign up to sites and get paid for that. Back to the main point of Mylot. They have many different interests to discuss. Also another thing that is cool is that you get ranked based on how well the other fellow mylotters think you are doing. I have to say that I give this site an A++++. Where can you go to get paid and get answers or even give them other then this. It is the best site that could have came out. You need 10 dollars min. to cash out, which they take care of the cashing out part. The highest you can go is 100 dollars. They do pay and they pay on time.

The best paid to post site out there!

Mylot.com is one of the websites that I literally visit several times throughout the day. I have been a member there for almost a year now. Even if I weren't paid to post on Mylot, I would still participate on the site. I think that says a lot about the site itself!

Mylot.com is a paid to post site. You can begin discussions and respond to discussions and get paid for it! No one knows exactly how much your paid for each post, but what we do know is that you're paid the most for quality and quantity! So, well thought out responses get paid the best. From what members can tell, it ends up being around a penny per post.

Some of the other things you can get paid to do on Mylot is completing tasks and posting pictures. I like the tasks because you can go through and choose from a variety of things to do to earn money. You can write several short paragraphs and earn a couple of dollars or simply sign up for a website and earn a quarter. There is definitely a wide variety of tasks so there is something for everyone to choose from. You can also upload pictures onto the website and earn for those too. Again, the exact earnings for posts and pictures is unknown.

Mylot pays each month through PayPal. If by the end of the month you earn the minimum payout ($10) then by the 15th of the following month your money will be deposited into your PayPal account. If you do not reach the minimum payout by the end of the month then you can keep trying for the following month. But you never lose that money that's already in your account!

Mylot is one of those FUN earning sites! I'd highly recommend it to everyone!

One of my favorite habits

I can't believe I've been a member of MyLot as long as I have, but it's been 3 years.

I'll admit when I first joined, my main motivation was the money. However, I soon graduated to just using it as a social, educational and promotional tool with the extra money being a little added bonus.

Though MyLot has other topics for discussion, I tend to frequent the 'make extra money' section a lot, as earning online is one of my main interests. Over the years, that section has proven to be one of my teachers as I've picked up some really good tips from the discussions, joined some great sites and visited other myLotters blogs through their profiles (some which I've subscribed to).

Unfortunately, over the past 6 months or so, I've noticed the quality of discussions in the money section has taken a tumble as some myLotters seem to be solely interested in self-promotion (even though it's against MyLot's rules to do so). I find it irritating and off-putting.

Apart from that, I think MyLot is great. With loads of topics to be a part of, I think it's an extremely prolific site and can be quite addictive!

A great site

I actually found out about IM Reportcard from a Mylot member. I have been a member to this site for 2 years and have managed to meet a lot of great people and find a lot of earning opportunities. Basically at Mylot you get paid to talk about anything with other members. They have topics from making extra money to frugal living. You can also complete a task to earn money faster and they just added a section where you can complete quizzes. I would recommend this site to everyone, because since joining I have found out about enough programs to make $300 per month online. This is a great site with great support from the admin and the members.

My myLot Experience

I've been a member of MyLot for years now and though I don't often post new topics, I visit this site to read and comment on other people's questions and/or experience about certain things. For me, this site isn't just for making money, but also to be able to interact with other people, know how and what they think about certain topics. I have learned a lot from comments from other people, especially when I have to make decisions and I'm not sure or need input from those who have experience with the choices I have. So basically, MyLot members aren't just another entity online, but they are also my help whenever I needed one.

Nice Social Network

MyLot is a nice, revenue sharing, social networking site. It's easy to navigate and I appreciate their strictness regarding the quality of comments posted. Although most found the site as an earning site, you are not allowed to post your MyLot earnings in a discussion there. You also cannot post your referral links or any other solicitation in a discussion. You can post those in a profile, though. That alone improves the quality of the discussions. There must be hundreds of interests and you choose which you want to participate in. The "Making money online" seems to be one of the most popular ones and I've learned a lot from my friends. The "task" section can be helpful in earnings, but the pay is low. It will take me several months to reach the $10 pay out, and I visit and participate daily.

I love MyLot!

I have been a member of MyLot for almost 1 year now. I love MyLot. I learned a lot of things from life to making money. I can be myself without exposing too much of me. I can ask my fellow MyLotters about the things that I can't say to my friends and family without being judged. I get only honest opinions, and that is what I love most about MyLot. There was once when I posted a discussion about a certain problem I had. The problem was solved by my fellow MyLotters. It's a community where members help each other. A place where we can talk about just anything under the sun. A place where you LEARN and EARN at the same time.

One thing that's a little discouraging is that it would take you a long time to reach the payout. You have to be really active, like 24 hours active. MyLot paid me and now I'm only $4.25 away from reaching my 2nd payout.

Money for chatting

I discovered Mylot about 2 months ago and it is a surprisingly addictive site! In a nutshell, you get paid for creating and joining in discussions, about anything and everything. There are users from all over the world so you can get some interesting perspectives on some topics, although the English isn't always up to scratch and can make some comments difficult to decipher. You can add friends, which provides quick access to discussions they have created and vice versa.

The payment system is not clear in terms of amounts awarded, but the basic premise is that the more you contribute (quality over quantity) the more you earn. I only get a few cents a day, but I am only on for about half an hour on and off. If you spent a lot of time on the site you would obviously earn more.

The quickest way to earn is through the tasks which are created by users, usually to get them referrals for other sites and paying around 10 cents a time. Recently there have been writing tasks paying $4 each, a quick way to boost money and I have been paid for a couple of these. Minimum payout is $10, so if you can complete some higher paid tasks it is easy to reach this amount.

I have seen very few complaints relating to payments, which are made through PayPal. You will not get rich using this site, but it is a fun way to earn a little extra each month.

Mylot community

I like the Mylot community,but not for the earning part.

Earning there is not so easy to do. You have to post a lot to earn the 10 dollars. I like that you can ask people about everything, that is very important to me. People there can tell me if a site is a scam or not, and they can help you find great sites to earn. I have many friends there from all over the world.

I love MyLot!

MyLot is one of the first paying forums I joined. A lot of my online friends are raving about MyLot and I had to be there too! At first, I was closely monitoring my earnings per post, trying to compute their rate. But until now I never really understood how those computation works, so I gave up on that aspect.

Regarding the posting, I am fairly active, and got a lot of friends from the site. I never regretted joining in, even though the promise of earning seems too slow. For almost 4 months now, I was just at $6 mark which is still far from the minimum $10 cash-out.

I just consider the money aspect as bonus from the fun and excitement I got from MyLot.

My favorite forum

I joined Mylot a few months ago. I don't really like to discuss a lot in forums, but I found Mylot very interesting to me and so I decided to become a member.

It is really a nice place where you can discuss about everything.

The only bad thing for me there is that there are a lot of members who try to promote their links, although they know it is forbidden to do that in Mylot.

I know that you can earn money there, but this is not very important to me in Mylot.

I joined some new sites that I found there and the best of all is that I found a discussion about imreportcard there and that's why I am here now.

MYLOT ... A really good site

I actually joined because of the accurate information I got from the message boards in Mylot. Only two weeks after joining did I realize that this site pays money. It's a really good site. I made a lot of friends. There are loads of message boards where you can display your interests. Some of the things that I liked about Mylot are:

1. Low tolerance for spamming. Spammers will get banned immediately from Mylot.

2. I have always found a solution in Mylot. Any time I get stuck somewhere in work I can always rely on Mylot users to help me out.

3. I find that navigating through Mylot is easy.

4. They pay me for my posts.

Now you should understand that they pay you based on the quality of your post. If your post has valid content that can benefit others then only will you get paid, else it will be deleted. Overall my experience in Mylot has been really excellent.

The best money-earner for me!

What else could be the best way to earn than have fun while doing it? I spend about 3 hours Mylotting everyday, and I earn over $20 every month from the site alone. I guess I could earn more than that if I had active referrals (which I don't) since one can earn 25% of anyone who signs up under them. So it does pay to advertise this site.

Some might think $20 a month is not much. True, but the experience one can get from the place is so much more than the money you're making. It is a wonderful place to make friends, share your views and learn from others.

The best thing about Mylot is they pay you on time without the need for you to request a payout. I would truly recommend this site to anyone who is looking for a legitimate site to earn extra cash, and wants to have fun in the process.

Making Money Online Tips !!!

We're not gonna be overnight millionaires by working online, but e few extra Cash, would be great!

 
 
 
A library of information!

I joined MyLot about 2 months ago when I was trying to learn how to earn money online. I'm happy to say that MyLot has been a wealth of information to me. It has helped me a lot by helping me decide which earning sites are legit and which ones are scam. I also learned useful tips on how to make the most out of whatever you're doing. It's because the forum is very diverse and deals with topics about all aspects of life. What I like most about MyLot is that it's pretty organized. You can choose your interests so that only the topics you're interested in will show up.

The only unfortunate experience I've had with MyLot is the fact that I've never been able to cashout. The site imposes quality over posts, and with the amount of experienced people passionately commenting on topics, I find it hard to compete and get any "best response". But it's really too much to ask when MyLot is already giving me sheer amounts of information. It's even the one that referred me to this website.

Great place to meet people, but not so much to earn

I've been a MyLot member for about 6 months.

I joined this site to earn money originally, but because I found it so extremely hard to earn anything decent, I decided to move on to other ventures. I also have yet to understand what is required in order to earn there. I have heard that you get rewarded for uploading pics, commenting in discussions etc, yet I've done all of that and haven't seen a cent in my account.

I now hardly ever visit this site anymore.

If I had to recommend this site as a source to make money online, I definitely wouldn't. However, if you're a very social person and you're interested in meeting some people that may share the same views as you on various topics.. MyLot is a great place!

Make Money Online Free, Fast and Easy! - testimonial of a skeptic!

 
 
 
It's A Fun Site & Getting Paid Is Like Icing On The Cake!

Mylot was the very first site I joined while searching for a site to make a little extra money with. I originally joined to chat (and promote) my online jewelry shop and ended up becoming friends with several members... members who I have never met, but who share some of the same interests and beliefs that I do.

Many of my early forays into online money making came from suggestions made on the MyLot site, and I regularly went there to chat about crafting, family, children, etc.

The earnings were quite slow. Making a couple of cents for a paragraph or two didn't seem worth the effort. But once I chose to forget about how much money I made each day and began treating the site like an open chat room... a chat room with many topics... I began having fun with MyLot.

It took a couple of months, but I finally reached my first payout (which arrived 6 business days EARLY!)and I've reached payout a few more times since.

The fairly new "tasks" feature has allowed me to earn money quicker, and I've accepted a couple of writing assignments that have helped me to reach payout quicker on a couple of occasions. Task opportunities can pay anywhere from 5 cents to $4+ depending upon the opportunity.

I love the MyLot site, I choose to participate when it's convenient for me. I've met several dozen friends from all over the world, shared information with them, and learned from their experiences at the same time. And best of all, I get paid to do it! What's not to like?

Grade- A+

Pretty nice site

I joined MyLot about 3 months ago after I had seen MyLot on a list of trusted money making websites. MyLot works like a forum. Basically, MyLot will pay you for your participation to the community. You can get payed for nearly everything you do, such as creating a new discussion, replying to a discussion and completing tasks. MyLot does not tell you how much you earn per post, but you can see your account balance every 24 hours.

I enjoy using MyLot because it is easy to use and understand, and not much work is required. What I disliked about MyLot is that it will take you a long time to reach the minimum pay out which is $10.

I would advise people who loves to chat and makes friends on forums, MyLot would be the perfect place to make some extra money. I personally have not cashed out yet to see if they actually pay, but I have seen many evidence online that they pay and that's why I decided to join MyLot.

Earn & learn with Mylot

I have to admit that I first joined Mylot because they pay their members for starting a discussion & response to a discussion. But once I started to join the community, I am no longer concern about how much I could earn there.

There is more than just earning money in Mylot, in fact, I learned a lot of things through it's community. There are members all around the world with different backgrounds & cultures. So I received a lot of valuable opinions & thoughts from them.

I have been paid several times through posting quality posts & completing tasks. So far I don't have any negative comments about Mylot & will definitely recommend it to anyone. The best thing is that we can earn & learn at the same time in Mylot!

More Than Just Money

I am fairly new to MyLot and so far I am enjoying it very much. Yes, I have the ability to make money for every post I make, but what really draws me to MyLot is the fact I can truly express my thoughts and opinions and get paid for it. I have made a few friends so far because of our similar interests. This site gives you the ability to speak your mind and help others in the process. I will say the task of adding interests is very time consuming but I just did it a little at a time. I think that a lot of people are missing out if they don't join this program. It really is worth the time to join discussions and also to get something out of it for yourself. I give this site a definite thumbs up.

Pretty great site

You will not get rich with MyLot. Unless you have a ton of referrals, you will probably not even make any more than $10 a month, at best. However, I really enjoy this site. For me it's like getting paid for something I would be doing anyway because I love to interact and exchange information with others. Since people are being paid to post, they require that the posts are of good quality. Hence, you'll find a lot of great enlightening discussions on nearly every topic imaginable. It's also very active. If you make a post, you'll probably have replies within minutes. Occasionally, I even use it as a substitute for Yahoo! Answers. You can also benefit from it in terms of internet marketing, especially if you have a website or blog you want to link to from your profile. You can also add your blog's RSS feed!

Another way to make money with MyLot is by completing tasks. This program is very similar to Amazon's Mechanical Turk. However, since most of the tasks are posted by other users, they usually do not pay much and involve signing up for various GPT sites using someone's referral links. While I don't think that the money is worth the time it takes to complete these tasks, it is a good way to get you closer to payout.

Basically, I think that MyLot can earn you some extra money, but the main draw is the wealth of information available. It really is the ultimate message board and you can find whatever you're looking for there.

Fun, Easy and Money

I've been a member of Mylot for 3 months already and I joined this site because it has good reviews, even though it's a bit boring if you imagine all the paid to post things. I could say I was wrong with my first impression with this one because it's not boring after all. Mylot is like facebook or twitter, with payments. Not only do you gain money by posting and doing their tasks, but also you gain friends, especially if you have common topics or interests. It may seems like $10 minimum payout is hard to reach, but trust me once you get the hold of posting topics and people doing some comments about it, $10 is just a few days away. Just make sure you have minimum of 30 words per post. Hopefully, I'll be getting my 2nd payout next week. I highly recommend this site to all bloggers out there.

Legit site and worth it

I joined MyLot only because a friend asked me to. At first I thought it was pretty boring, but I gave it a try anyway. I fell in love with MyLot after a day. The site layout is clean and very easy to navigate. All the questions I have in mind can be answered easily by looking at the FAQ link. Everything I needed to know is simply a click or two away! And then it's not just your typical get paid to post forum. What sets it apart is that there's a task board, where members can create or accept tasks. This for me is great. It adds to my earning opportunities for the site, thus making it easier to reach the minimum payout of $10. The credits or earnings board is very cozy too. I can easily track my earnings, and what's wonderful is that I get to see where I earned a certain amount. And my referrals' earnings are there too. Making it doubly easy for me to track how much they have helped me earn. Overall, I can say MyLot is a cool site. It's a legit site that really pays, and I enjoy my time posting there. And I make friends too, so I don't just earn money. I enjoy and get to meet new people so it's really worth my time and effort.

Mylot is my place to hang out!

I joined Mylot around November of 2008. I initially joined it by completing a task on one of the GPT sites I was a member of at that time. The person that put the task up warned us that we would probably get addicted to the site.

I did become addicted to the site very quickly. I spent a lot of my "FREE" time on there. Since I joined Mylot, I have been paid 4 times already. I am really starting to like Mylot even more now since the creation of tasks. They are paying for written articles, etc, and earning the minimum payout of $10 a month is super easy now.

I definitely recommend this site to anyone that likes to talk/type. While you won't earn a lot for simply responding to posts nor starting discussions, you can earn for quality posts.

Join the Mylot family!

One of the BEST!

I've been a MYLOT member for almost 2 years already and I must say that the time I spend there is worth my while. The site has a very simple interface and navigating through it is very easy. You basically just have to find a topic of interest which you're familiar with, maybe start a discussion about a particular topic of your liking or respond to another member's discussion and you earn for each post you make. They also offer 'tasks' and a referral program where you get 25% of what your referral makes, which afford members extra avenues for earning.

One thing to keep in mind though, as a MYLOT member, is that the site imposes QUALITY in each discussion or response a member makes. A discussion has to be informative, original and of course, sensible. MYLOT terms those as 'quality discussions' and they let a member earn the most. However, as far as how much each post is worth is something which remains a mystery to members.

In a nutshell, MYLOT is one of the best paid-to-post sites on the web. You can even set your desired payout to the amount of your choice and if you don't reach payout in a given month, the money gets carried over to the following month. You don't have to request for payout because they send it out automatically, and they always pay on time so they get my vote for that.

MYLOT is worth considering if one is on the lookout for legitimate paying opportunities.
