Misleading Ways to Make Money Online – Personal Reflections – Part III of III

Some people have generated the hype that one can make money by reading emails, clicking on links, Pay Per Post, sharing videos and photographs. Nothing can be far from the truth.

In another article I have indicated how making money by doing surveys is fallacious. The same comments apply more or less to the above mentioned schemes.

I have been involved in a few programs for reading emails. I never got a penny from these. At best it may take years to reach the minimum payout of $ 10.

First, you will not get enough emails. Second, most of them pay less than a cent, or even a quarter of a cent. I know one program paying 1 / 10th of a cent. How ridiculous. With this much of payment, one will be toiling a whole day for a few cents.

Lastly, their minimum payment is $ 10 or more. They have ensured that no one reaches that payout for a very long time.

I am also involved in a few programs aimed at clicking of links. Again, I never got any payment. In one program, I have reached about $ 8 after a long time, with payout at $ 10. I am stuck at this amount because now I do not get any links. I wonder if they do it purposely in order to keep me and others like me out of payment, being so close.

As regards clicking of links, there are not enough. Here again, it may take up to a year or more to reach the payout amount.

I believe something in one Pay Per Click program. I have not reached the payout stage, but I hope I will make it there. Once I am paid, I will write about it in my blog. It is essentially a penny game and it really takes a long time, enough to get discouraged.

Pay Per Post is another scheme run by numerous websites. In this when you write something and post it, you are expected to be paid a penny or two. One popular program in this category is myLot.com. I used to be credited at an average of 3 pennies per post. But now this has gone down to about one cent. I have read from many members on myLot to have experienced similar declines in their credit. I have never been paid on that site so far, with a credit of about $ 7.

I have no personal experience about videos or photographs. However, I have read discouraging reports regarding the latter. Making money with videos might be a better idea.

There are so many variations of the above programs. They keep on appearing in one form or the other.

What one can conclude from my writings is that it is a sheer waste of one's time, resources and aspirations. So before getting discouraged, one should not even think of these false money making schemes.

Question is what do the authors of these programs gain? By …
