For those just starting here, here are some details that might encourage you.
How long did it take to gather 10 payouts? In my case, about eighteen months. Now to be fair, I'm a little lazy and that could have been achieved much quicker if I had put in more time and effort.
Was it easier in the past? Yes, definitely! There were more ads then, and you could earn much faster. Today, all advertising is down worldwide - every site is effected equally. It is frustrating waiting for fan pages or whatever to come, but this can't last forever. The recession shows signs of improvement, and soon fanslave must see some better results. Hang in there!
Do I have lots of referrals? No, none - I'm a loner.
Do I earn more elsewhere? Absolutely not! I can't think of any site that has even paid me 15 dollers in eighteen months, let alone 150 euros plus! This is the top earner without any doubt for those who just want to earn without investing.
