Can You Make Money With Surveys?

by Kathy Griffin Independent Business Owner

One of the easiest ways to make some extra cash for people like, stay at home moms, and students is to get started taking online surveys. There's nothing like getting paid to give your opinion; I love it! There are also a few related home business opportunities such as Mystery Shopping, and Online Data Entry jobs. 

In my own research I have found that there are literally thousands of websites promoting what they claim to be the best online survey sites. Many of the sites will claim that you should never pay to gain access to the survey companies but should instead always go to the free databases which they will gladly give you access to as long as you give them your name and web address so they can sell you something else late.

What is the average person looking to make some extra cash with the least amount of complications to do? Well I'm glad you asked! 

Let's start by laying some groundwork. Don't let anyone tell you how to make money online. It is OK to get opinions and ideas from other people but always do your own due diligence. It is imperative that you check out the opportunity, no matter what it is, before you jump in with both feet and end up drowning in a flood of complicated nonsense that will waste both your time and money and won't make you a dime. If you haven't guessed by now, I am speaking from personal experience.

Now lets talk basics; online surveys are a great opportunity to make extra money but not something that will make you an instant millionaire! Need to cover this month's car payment? No problem. How about the mortgage payment? We can swing it! Of course it will depend on how much time and effort you put into filling out and submitting the surveys as you must build a track record in order to be offered some of the higher paying surveys.

The next thing we want to consider is which online survey company should we sign up with. You have two choices, a free site or a paid site. I think you should check both of them out before you make your decision but my own personal preference is to go with a reputable paid survey site where you pay a small one time fee of usually $30.00 to $40.00 to gain access to a prescreened database of solid survey companies that will pay you to give your opinion on online surveys and opinion polls.

If you choose a good site it will also have related opportunities as listed above for Mystery Shopping and Data Entry jobs. The great thing about the paid sites is they offer customer support; tips to help you get started with your online survey business, and free bonuses that are worth several times the price of admission.
