One of the greatest things about the internet, apart from the endless stream of funny cat videos, is the interaction. With the advent of chat, forums, and later social media, the internet has become a place for people to come together. Family members, long-lost friends, or acquaintances with common interests, can stay in touch via the internet. And I don’t mean just people you’ve met physically in the real world. The internet has countless forums for a wide variety of interests, that brings together people who otherwise would never have met. I’ve met some of my closest friends on forums.

Since I was spending so much time on the internet and forums, I wondered if there was a way to make money doing what I already did daily-surfing the internet. The list below gathers some of the sites I’ve found. They reward you for posting on a variety of topics, including entertainment, education, and even politics. They’re a lot of fun, but keep in mind that you need to work hard to make them lucrative.

With that said, let’s get to my list!

EarnThatBuck (The Forums You're On Now)

While many of the sites below pay you penniest to write posts, the EarnThatBuck forums pay you every single month for the traffic your posts bring in to the site! That means you can post today, and earn money for years to come!

All forum threads on EarnThatBuck are about making money. Well turns out there is a ton of stuff you can write about when it comes to earning money, because everyone in the world needs to know about that topic.

ExtraDime

I love this site because it gives new users a 50 cent signing reward. The site pays .02 cents for each post you make and ten cents for each thread you make. The numbers may not look to awesome at first glance, but you’ll be surprised at how your post count (and, as a result, your earnings), pile up.

Another cool thing about the site is that you can include your Google ads — a welcome feature.

myLot

Having been in operation for almost 15 years, myLot is one of the OGs of paid posting. The site pays 1 to 50 cents for each new thread you start, and responses made on your threads earns you .01 cent. Using their proprietary search engine also gets you 20 cents, which is a great add-on bonus. The site pays via PayPal in $10 minimum payouts.

MoneyShareForum

When I came across this site, something surprised me: they do revenue sharing! Revenue sharing is basically 50% of your posts’ earnings if they’re able to attract other sites. That’s the best case scenario. Normally, you get paid a set fee for posting, like in other sites. They use Liberty Reserve for payouts.

ITalkMoney

ITalkMoney pays from .03 cents up to 10 cents per post. The amount depends on the quality of posts, and whether you signed-up as a free member. If you move up to Paid User, that pay rate goes up to .05 cents up to 20 cents per post. You’ll have to balance whether the upgrade, and the higher pay it provides, is worth the upfront cost.

Postloop

Postloop is one of the more professionally-looking forum posting sites out there. While a site’s design isn’t always relevant, PostLoop made me feel more confident in their system.

That professionalism stretches into their application process. You’ll have to make ten sample posts before you can start working for them. The vetting process ensures that they only hire the best writers for the job.

Once approved, you can start posting in any of their client’s forums. On average, you can earn .08 cents per forum post. Minimum payouts, which are done via PayPal is $5.

PaidForumPosting

Like PostLoop, PaidForumPosting looks really professional and has a wide variety of paying clients. You’ll have to submit seven sample posts to be accepted as one of their writers.

Now here’s the thing about the site: they’re not as upfront about their pay rates. (They show how much they charge clients, but not how much they pay us writers) But I’ve found some commenters online, and they say you can get paid up to 20 cents per post, which is on the higher end of the scale. Payouts, like most sites, are done via PayPal.

The Forum Wheel

The Forum Wheel provides credits per post you make. You get a base of one credit per post, but this rate increases as you post more and build a higher rating. The maximum amount of credits per post is 2.5. In real-world money, this translates to .05 cents for one credit, and 13 cents for 2.5 credits.

You can cash in your credits at any time… no minimum amount! Payments are made via PayPal within 24 hours, which is a pretty fast processing time. I definitely like this site.

Other Options

Of course, forums aren’t the only way people interact online. Social media is now the biggest platform for communication and interaction. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that there are jobs for people to post on those sites. I would suggest heading over to a freelancing site like Fiverr. The site is host to a large number of openings for people to do paid posting on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.

The Verdict: Legit or Scam?

Legit!

These sites may not pay very high at first glance, but the payouts quickly add up if you keep at it. Make sure you also use sites like the aforementioned Fiverr to develop a wider network of sites to work for. That way, you widen your reach and increase your earning potential.

Your Turn

This is my review based on my own experiences doing paid posts. Now it’s your turn to share. Have you done the same? Got any tips and secrets?

Let’s hear your stories!

I just signed up with Extra dime and they are not very good; they banned my registeration and it really doesn't make any sense to me. I wouldn't want to work with someone like that for banning a new registration for no reason. They are up to something.

You signed up and got banned within 8 minutes? Is it possible that you were using a proxy?

I have tried all those sites but postloop,forum wheel and paid forum posting rejected my application and the rest due to some reasons never worked for me like extra dime needs one to install the app version.

Postloop pays you via Paypal. You can choose the topics you can write for. There is also a referral program wherein you can earn from residual income from people you referred.

I've done a few of these sites but the only one I am active on at the moment is MyLot. You have to put in the work but I usually make a payment every month. Getting started is hard as you don't know anyone and you need people to interact with you so many newbies give up quite early.

Postloop I have done but was not particularly impressed. I like the ForumWheel and have earned quite a bit there although the forums are a bit scarce at the moment.

I also managed to get in on PaidForumPosting. I got the acceptance letter and they asked if I had any questions. I sent off an email asking about stuff I wasn't sure of and never heard back. Months later someone came on and asked why I hadn't got back to them! I decided to leave it.

I think some of those other sites are US only.

You get paid via Paypal in MyLot. This is done every month. How to earn is very straight-forward but you won't get that much unless you spend a lot of time on it.
It's true you do need to work hard to make any money on MyLot but the secret lies in making friends with people who will interact with you. I make a payout every month on this site (the only one I actually do manage to cash out on each month). It's more of a social networking site than a forum and the good thing is your responses and comments can be as long or as short as you like as long as your discussions are of a decent length. If you have any problems on the site you can always contact their admin who will answer your queries quite quickly.

The one thing that puts people off is the fact their earning structure is different to many sites in that you cannot see the counter go up with each post. They use an earning algorithm method, they pay you on the amount of interaction other people make with you and not on what you do yourself. It can be very slow and sometimes that counter never seems to move but if you persevere it is worth it.

Why is EarnThatBuck not on this list? Also it's missing BeerMoneyForum, they also have a similar program where you get paid to post on forums.

@ARLO....seems like those were picked up from google the way they are.There are good forums out here like bmf and fc but they're not included in this list and besides there are other forums included here like extra dime don't really exist in PTP sites currently.
