Paid Surveys - All You Ever
Need To Know!
by: Josh Stanton
Ok another ridiculous attempt to make money on the internet right?
Wrong! This is great way to make some instant cash easily. Let me tell you a little about 'Paid Surveys'.
What are they exactly?
They are simply this - 'Paid Surveys conducted by major companies in order to better understand what their market actually wants, which intern will save them money on future productions.'
Due to the high risk involved in producing new products, these companies are willing to pay members of the public money to participate in their surveys. The amount of money you could aquire from participating is anywhere from $25 to $150.
Now this may not seem like alot, but what if you were asked to complete 10 paid surveys at $50 each? You would make $500. Not too bad for answering a couple of questions.
How do I sign up for Paid surveys?
The best way is to sign up with an 'Paid Survey Provider'. Market Research Companies(MRC's) who conduct the surveys, pay money for the data provided(you and me). The Paid Survey Providers then take their cut after and we take ours of course. Simple as that.
How do I know which Paid Survey Provider would be best for me?
The best Paid Survey Provider to be apart of, would be one that has the most clients, which would give you more opportunities to participate in more paid surveys. Another thing you must find out, is whether or not they mostly offer cash rewards, as many paid survey sites do not and instead offer you the chance to go in the draw for a prize.
So if you want to make some money through paid surveys, always keep this in mind.
Do you have any tips that can help me make the
most of this opportunity?
Make sure you check your Paid Survey Provider often because they are updated all the time and you never know when a new company may become registered with them. It's best to register early with a new company as the old saying goes, 'first in best dressed'. In other words, the earlier you register, the better the chance you will have of being invited to participate in their surveys.
Another tip is to register with companies that offer cash rewards as we talked about above. Lots of companies will give out non-cash prizes as well as allowing you the chance to go in a draw for a cash reward. Make sure you register with companies that offer you money first.
Register all of your family members for as many companies as possible. This gives you a better chance to be offered more surveys, which would mean that you can make more money in the long run.
Make sure you stay patient. There are databases that are free to sign up with, but they give you a small chance of gaining invitations to surveys. That's why I suggest signing up for a membership with a Paid Survey Provider. You will gain access to more companies providing surveys which will help you prosper more in the long run.
So is it worth it?
Of course it is! It may not make you filthy rich, but it is a fun and easy way to make a few extra bucks. I find the surveys to be enjoyable to participate in aswell as the rewards being quite a welcome bonus. It's great when I recieve a check for $50 that I can't even remember what for!
