Making passive money with MyLot

Making passive money with MyLot

One of the many things that people try to do online is to make money from doing nothing. I always tell people that this simply isn’t possible, and that some kind of work has to go into all money that you make, because this is usually the truth. However, sometimes, there is the chance to make money by doing things that you would have done anyway.


An example of this will be key to anybody who enjoys posting on internet forums. Around seven years ago, a new forum arrived on the scene; MyLot (click to visit). It was an innovation of its kind, and is certainly one of the only such forums that is still in survival. To put it simply, you can earn money by debating and chatting.


When I found this website, I approached it with some caution, as I honestly didn’t know just how viable the whole idea was going to be. You have to accumulate at least $10 (although you can set the amounts to be higher if you wish) to be eligible to receive the monthly payment, which is paid by PayPal, so I was determined to reach this amount as soon as possible so that I could confirm whether it was legitimate or not. When the time came, I was almost shocked to find that I did receive the payment, and this therefore confirmed that this website was as it claimed to be.


To earn money on MyLot, you simply respond to the discussions of other users. It is not exactly known how the earnings are worked out, however it is often observed that longer, higher quality responses earn more money than shorter ones. You should not expect to earn an absolute fortune. I found that I was earning around $0.02 (two cents) per post at the beginning, but soon found that increasing the quality of posts would help. This might not seem as though it is a large amount of money, however the majority of users find that it takes them very little time to post a response, meaning that you could get to the point where it is possible to earn a couple of dollars in an hour. Not a fantastic wage, but it can be a useful source of income when you have a little spare time with nothing else to do.


In addition to posting, there is also the opportunity to complete tasks on MyLot. These are jobs that other users have posted, ranging in payment from $0.01 to $10, and can sometimes be as simple as “liking” a photo on Facebook. You will find that these additional jobs can boost your earnings greatly, meaning that you could reach pay-out much more quickly.


If you get involved in the community in other ways, such as using the website’s own search bar or uploading photos to your threads in the forum, you will find that you can achieve a fair amount of bonus cash. Although not life changing, it can build up to quite a decent amount over the course of the month, meaning that you have at least a little extra to spend.


If you’re not sure whether this is for you, then I would urge you to give it a go by clicking HERE to sign up. It costs nothing, and there is a chance that could make a fair amount of money.  In addition to this, the forum is full of friendly people, so you may find that you are able to get in contact with people who become firm friends to you. If you think about the amount of time that you currently procrastinate by chatting to people online, then it makes absolute financial sense that you should make a little money from doing so, if you can.
