How to Make Money Posting in Forums with Postloop

Updated on June 19, 2013

Do you enjoy taking part in a community to discuss your hobbies and interests? Do you find yourself constantly perusing the Internet to search for new and interesting information from experts? Do you want to earn a little extra cash doing something fun? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you would be the perfect candidate to get paid to post on forums at Postloop.

What is Postloop? is a website which pays for users to post on forums for owners who need quality posts to help expand their new forum communities. Although there are many other paid forum-posting companies out there (,,, etc.), Postloop generally has the highest reputation in the work-at-home community for their prompt payment and excellent service.

Earning Money on Postloop

Postloop allows you to subscribe to various forums and earn “points” for each post you make. Once you reach 100 points, you can cash out ($5.00 for 100 points). Forums generally have a maximum limit on the number of posts per person (usually somewhere between 5 – 10 posts). Owners require that the posts be informative, descriptive, and written with perfect English grammar. If you do not follow these guidelines and any others they set forth when you subscribe to their forums, they could give you a poor rating, which will ultimately affect how much money you can earn. Many users make at least $5 per day, and if you're an expert writer, you could potentially even earn up to $10 in a day.

Points and Ratings

The number of points you achieve for each post depends on your rating and whether or not the site offers a 10% bonus per post. Ratings are given by forum owners who will rate the quality of your posts. If you actively contribute quality content to their forums by starting interesting threads, posting multi-line comments, and have good grammar/spelling, they will give you a high rating (4+). If you post only single line comments filled with typos or grammatical errors, they could give you a very poor rating. The poor rating will result in you only getting a percentage of a point for posts. This vastly reduces your earning speed over time. It is highly recommended that you follow each forum's guidelines and pay attention to what you are posting. Because forum owners are paying for you to post and generate content, they are generally going to care that your posts actually contribute to helping their community. If you subscribe to forums with content that you're interested in though, this is quite easy!

Requirements to Begin

You must first sign up with Postloop and confirm your e-mail. You will then be asked to follow their instructions to subscribe to the Postloop Portal forum both at the forum and through the Postloop website and make 10 sample posts at the forum. If your ten sample posts are of sufficient quality, you will be approved as a Postloop poster and be given a high rating. Remember, the higher the rating the higher your point bonus and the faster you make money. Once you have your rating, you can begin subscribing to the forums listed on the Forums tab of the Postloop website. You will need to subscribe at both the forum itself and through the Postloop forums list. Be sure to follow all of the instructions Postloop gives you for subscribing so that you can properly earn your points and begin making money. After you have achieved 100 points, you can link your Paypal account to Postloop and request to withdraw money. Postloop will then deposit your earnings directly into your Paypal account.

It's great for people who may want to make some money writing but do not enjoy writing the excruciatingly long articles required on other paid-to-write sites. If you enjoy writing and discussing your thoughts and knowledge on various topics with people, get started posting today!
