Did you know that it’s actually possible to make money taking surveys? Advertisers spend millions of dollars annually for marketing purposes — and one of the ways they collect the information to optimize their products/services is via paid online surveys. In this article, I will tell you how to make money from surveys (although pretty self-explanatory) and also share some of the websites I have found to be extremely effective in making money online with surveys.
A lot of the survey websites that you may stumble across may seem promising at first glance — but after joining, you find out that after completing a certain amount of surveys and earning a minimal amount, they run out of surveys and you do not meet the minimal threshold to cash out your earnings. This is the biggest reason that people begin to think that its actually impossible to make money online and the whole concept of making money with surveys is a scam.
There are a lot of survey websites out there that can be considered scams due to the exact reason I stated above, but there are also many legit websites where people can make a steady amount of money per survey. So, what do you look for in a survey website to confirm its legitimacy? Well, there’s nothing you can do except try them out yourself — but luckily for you, I have compiled a short list of the top survey websites where you can actually turn a profit. Some of these websites actually pay you to complete surveys as well as offer other money making methods which are readily available for you to easily increase your earning potential.
When registering on a survey website, please make sure that they offer payouts for your country. A lot of the survey websites out there are restricted to the United States only — but there are also many for other countries. If you can’t find any paid surveys for your region (and there is none included for your region in my full list), simply leave a comment below and I can offer you a few recommendations.
At the end of the day, the question really comes down to:How much money can I make from surveys?. Well, I’ve seen surveys that pay anywhere from $0.50 cents to $100 per survey — although the higher paying ones may require pre-qualification (as in you would have to have experience with a certain product to be able to share your experience on it). A lot of the survey websites also send you periodic email updates with new paid surveys for you to complete, which is a good way to be notified of new surveys. There are also a lot of survey companies that require you to make an initial investment to get access to premium surveys — some of these may be worth it, but if you have no money, then there’s no shame in going with the free ones that perform just as well.
What is the recommended plan of action? If you want to make any sort of serious money with paid surveys online, than you should join more than just one survey website. That way, you can complete multiple surveys on multiple websites and once you reach the threshold for payment, withdraw your money — the more websites you sign up with, the more surveys you have access to and therefore the more money you can make.
