Default Who all is doing the Postloop thing?

Ok, so I am really curious at how many of you are doing the postloop thing and how many are making at least $6 or $8 an hour?

The site says: "The exact amount that you earn per post or comment will depend on the quality of content. The higher the quality of your content, the more you will get paid! Our writers receive $0.076 on average per post or comment that they make. You do not need to worry about setting up individual contracts or agreements - Postloop handles all of that for you!"

Math was never my best subject, let's see if I can do this:

.076 per forum comment... so 13 comments to earn a penny .... 1300 comments for $1 ...7800 comments to make $6 .... in an hour?

PLEASE tell me my math is off?

Yep, your math is off

If each post is $0.076, that's 7.6 cents each, ~13 to earn one dollar, ~78 to earn $6.00. I have no idea what this is, but it still seems like a lot.

They actually give you points, instead of money, for a post. You need 100 points to get $5. Right now they are saying that the average poster earns 1.52 points per post. If you manage 1.5 for every post, then you will need just over 66.7 posts to get $5, which is 13.3 posts for $1. BUT, that is IF you manage to get 1.5 points for every post. Now the questions is, how many can you reasonably do in an hour AND keep up the quality that will get 1.5 points.

LMAO


This is why I let Quickbooks balance my checkbook! That said, I still can't imagine posting comments in forums 76 times in an hour - not my cup of tea!

I signed up for it because I seen it on someone elses signature on here. After I signed up I realized it wasn't worth it...

Yeah I posted in the other thread that my rating is conveniently just below what it needs to be in order for me to cash out (even though my responses were each at least 2 paragraphs and grammatically sound).

I'd love to make 6 bucks an hour in forums, I love running my mouth, but I really don't see how that's going to happen with postloop.

And to be honest I'm starting to wonder if it's only the people with affiliate signup links that are getting paid high rates like that.

I'm sure there are tons of other forum posting jobs.
