When I see claims I think are exaggerated, I just ignore them.  I know from the personal experience of having people call me a liar when I tell them how much I make online, that you never can tell if they are telling the truth or not. The bottom line is, WHO CARES? They can rant and rave all they want and I just chuckle all the way to the bank.

An interesting thing happens to me every time I send a comment on a Youtube video or a money earning blog page. 

I usually start be saying something commendable, like thank you for the information, or nice video, nice blog page, whatever, I just try to say something positive.

Then I kindly ask if their earnings are of their own efforts or do they have a downline of referrals?

This is where it gets interesting.  When I ask, I get no reply, nada, zip, zilch.  Are you surprised?  No?  Neither am I.

Now if I had a question about one of the earning options, or the link to sign up or anything like that, then I hear from them. 

Isn't that interesting?  Not really.  :bad:

Bet i would think most dont wanna reveal their ways of getting referrals if it has done well for them.I guess i can see their point.Hard enuff to get them on your own,why share your success when it might take some away from you.

I am curious as to if anyone on here (and I assume most have) ever google ways to make money from home or best survey sites?  I have seen I don't know how many posts that have the same list of survey sites we are all members of and it says you can expect to make this much or this much an hour with each site.

Almost every one of them says between $10-$15 an hour.  On sites like Pinterest when I can comment I call them on the BS.  There is NO way to make $10 or more an hour taking surveys.  Heck you are lucky to make 75 cents an hour most times. lol  BUT, if they can get people to join thru their referral link and do the first survey (at least on this site) right there is $3.

I guess that is the new way to make money - lie to get referrals.  Most sites pay at least $1 when you get someone to join thru your referral link.  I had someone specifically ask for my referral link to one of the sites I do.  I sent it to her and I assume she just joined by going directly to the site because she did not use my link.  >:(


Hello! :D :)


Getting referrals can be tricky, which is why I suppose some lie about it. I mean who wants to sign up and work for pennies, not that many people? Nonetheless I still wouldn't lie about it! :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose:

I have seen plenty of the sites claim to make more than a full time income. I have actually joined one in the past because of that. Of course it wasn't true, but they got me pulled in, I don't even remember the site.

What kind of free methods?  I would never pay for a referral. And it actually says on this site that if you get caught doing that your account will be closed.

I know there are sites where it is like an exchange.  You join my site and I will join yours.  But if you are not going to be active then you are basically worthless as a referral.  I would not do that either.

I am sure people have joined because of my link they just didn't USE my link.  The one I have on Twitter has been clicked on almost 1500 times.  I have 2 referrals that I do not know where came from.  But all they done was signed up.  Did not even do the first offer.  OR anything.

I never thought of that.  But the thing is like on Pinterest the actual PIN you are commenting on is most likely not going to be seen by the person who made the pin.   I do call the claims out if they are completely false.  People need to know the truth before they sign up.  OR on sites where people say OH USE MY CODE and it will get you this much money.  But fail to mention THEY also get $10.

I figure most people will double talk and basically lie if they did answer you.  I have my link on Twitter and I post a new link every now and then to this site and others.  I say on there if you join thru my link I will help you if you need help or know what to do. I been around a while and know things I didn't know to start with. So far I have had a few people like it but no comments.  I have had a few bigger "make money online" sites follow me briefly but usually unfollow after a few days.  I figure they are just stealing my stuff and then they have half a million followers so they sign up on their own and then post their link and they make enough money to live off of just from people who are desperate and sign up and sit there all day trying to make a few bucks.

And the thing is and I think people on here have said it, it seems you make more money when you first start out.  In the beginning I made close to $80 a couple of months and was making up in the $60s quite often.

Free as in surfing traffic exchanges.If u dont wanna surf you can pay to get credits to have your sites seen.I have actually done that in the past,but i try to avoid it cos i dont see the return that profitable.

Now if i had a "Cant miss"program"that many were joining i might consider spending to get the credits to advertise.I dont consider FC that way.I think its a nice program but not to spend a lot to advertise it thats why i prefer to surf to get the credits instead of paying for them.

I totally understand that.  If the shoe were on the other foot, I would not reveal exact details.  I would, however, share my method of success. 

All I was looking for with my questions was a simple yes, the majority of my earnings come from referrals.  At that point I would go no further and ask no more questions out of respect. 

Some of my earning sites are by invitation only.  My monthly earnings are low because I don't have the referrals.  When I see a screenshot from another member with considerable higher numbers, all I want to know is whether it's because of referrals or am I missing something in my own efforts to earn.

I sent a referral link to a friend who seemed really interested in earning a little extra money on FusionCash. She told me that she would do it. Either she didn't or she didn't use my link. I haven't made anything from referrals yet.  :(

I read a few replies and find that most have incommon my experience. I've passed on referrals and what I find is that it takes a certain kind of person to do this. This is not a get rich quick scheme. More something to do to make a little extra cash on the side (say while your watching TV at night). Most people would rather just stare at the TV. I would rather be watching and making a little cash. No one I have ever referred stays with it.

It is easy to know how they get them. They post in a place that gets a lot of traffic and they LIE. Or just omit part of the truth.  They do make x hundred a month. But most of that comes from other people who spend all day trying to make a couple of bucks.  People who are desperate and need to make some money so they put a lot of time in to the site.

Like I said, the websites I saw when I started this gets thousands of hits.  So they will probably get a good chunk of clicks and joins. And some people will join thru a link like that if they think the person is going to help them.

The places I have posted my link and said I will help you if you ask - I mean it.  I will.  I will tell people how to get started ASSUMING they join thru my link.  If you see my link and go to the site and join on your own then you are own your own as far as figuring out things I know now but didn't know the first few months.
