MyLot Program Review

July 26th, 2008

mylot-logo.gifMyLot is an interesting combination of discussion forum and get-paid-to (GPT) site that I joined several months ago but never really followed up on with active participation. This review article by Azlan Zahid that I found earlier today served a timely reminder for me to give this program another look because it is a potential source of PayPal funds that would not require as much work as writing full-length articles or essays. If you are not already a member of MyLot and would like to join the program, you may do so by clicking on their logo image in the upper left corner of the page. Registration is free and open to residents of all countries.


I came across MyLot.com in one of the forums I joined. The person who recommended MyLot.com to me mentioned in his post that MyLot.com pays for people to post on their site. Since I do some posting to other forums, I thought it might be a good idea to look at this one.

When I first clicked on the link to MyLot.com, I was initially disappointed. Loading of the pages seemed to take longer than I was accustomed to at other sites. However, once the main page was running, I was quite surprised. Unlike most other forums, MyLot.com covers a very wide variety of topics from the usual “making money online” topics to sports, general life issues, religion, politics, social issues, travel, and leisure. Topics such as music, movies, gardening, and cooking are also covered.

Since it had a wide range of topics, I decided to join the forum because it looked like an interesting place for posting and discussion. The registration process takes some time to complete as MyLot.com asks you about your interests. There are many categories available to choose from such as travel, computers, Internet, music, movies, life, religion, and several others. During this signup phase, you can select your favorite topics from the list or skip this process and do it at a later stage.

Once you have registered, you can immediately start posting. When I first started posting, I was overwhelmed with the topics that other posters were discussing. There were just too many categories and too many topics to handle all at once. However, after a few days I started to get the hang of it and began to post topics of my own.

As for earning through postings on MyLot.com, it is unlikely that you will make enough money from the program to quit your day job. While I haven’t figured out yet how they calculate how much you are paid, the amounts are generally pretty small. According to MyLot.com, they decide how much to pay a member for each posting based on the length and quality of the post.

Now that I have become a regular in MyLot.com, I still post to other forums but MyLot has become my favourite. I should be able to receive my earnings after I reach the $10 minimum payout level. They also pay 25% commissions on the earnings of referrals, which can make future payouts more significant if I manage to build up enough of a network of friends who remain active with the program.

Pros - Advantages

The website is a nice place to build a social network. Although it is a forum, it can also be used as a social networking site where you can meet people from all over the world. Similar to other social networking sites, you can upload images and photos, make friends, and send messages to other people in the MyLot community. The community itself is still growing. There are currently over 120,000 members of MyLot.com and the membership figures are still increasing.

Cons - Disadvantages

Occasionally, the website can be slow to load. Navigating from one page to another takes a bit of time and posting does not seem as straightforward as it could be. It can be difficult for you to keep track of all your posts or topics after becoming sufficiently active. Inexperienced users may encounter somewhat of a learning curve in attempting to optimise the usage of MyLot.com.

Summary

MyLot.com is a promising discussion forum and GPT site that is increasing in popularity everyday. There are currently over 120,000 members and the membership is growing everyday. I have found that this forum is a very good place to learn, discuss issues, and make new friends.

    I found MyLot just the other day and I joined already as I want their program of social networking and then earning at the same time.

    Just for two days ( a few hours a day, I earned 0.22) much more than I earned in a month from other affiliate programs. Thanks for sharing.

    @Jena:

    Thank you for the report on MyLot - I still need to go back to them and try posting in some of the discussions to test out the earning potential.

    Meanwhile, if you’re still earning less than 22 cents per month from affiliate marketing, you might want to check out my bum marketing page. You can even use some of the techniques explained there on your own blog as well as in the article directories, which should allow you to pull in at least a few sales.

    By this time, MyLot already doubled the number of its members and introduced some more other ways to earn from them aside from just posting on discussions. The fun, the friendship and the learning experience from the site is just awesome. I really love the site and glad to be there. I like it that they have an attentive admin who address member’s concern as fast as they can.
    MyLot is definitely a site worth spending time with.

    I totally agreed that Mylot would e a great source of PayPal funds. It really gives you an extra income if you spend time each day commenting and open discussion also. The more interested your discussion the more you got paid.

    Initially, I have nothing to comment. There is no topic or question from Mylot to comment. However,I have many stories to narrate, because I was already ten years old and remember, when the British pulled out of my country in 1941.

    During the Japanese Occupation, I worked as an office boy, cleaning the office and serving coffee or tea to the Japanese Officers.The Japanese were making iron ore by mixing granite and charcoal, which was heated until it melted like a molten lava.
