An Honest Review on Paid Surveys

by Jacob Marsh .
Our generation is encased in the mindset that earning good money should be difficult. This manner of thinking makes us incapable of believing that not everything has to be hard in order to produce money. A profound example that contradicts that belief is paid surveys. How convenient is it to get paid for surveys that require only honest answers regarding your opinion on a certain subject?

I bet you didn’t even know, or if you had, did not even think these privileges exist. It does, friend, and this revelation gets better because of how the concept of paid surveys has integrated with modern technology. Paper and ink need not be wasted. Surveys are launched in the worldwide web and can be accessed through any computer gadget.

All these good news, however, is strained by the prevalence of cyber crimes, scamming and other fraudulent acts being the number one felony committed. In the midst of survey offers, how do you know which ones are legit and which ones are scams?

Think before you act

 This rule of thumb is especially important for internet users. Never pursue any online activity without first considering your security and the consequences your actions may bring forth, regardless if they are good or bad. Taking surveys for money tops the list of online activities you ought to be careful of, mainly because cash and personal information are involved.

Reflect on your prospective ventures slowly and carefully, and if you are sure you are prepared to take responsibility for yourself on the web, continue reading on how we suggest you should proceed.

Check and then select

The web will always give you more options that what you need and what is healthy for your appetite. To slim it down, perform an extensive research on the survey panels you found. Do not settle for just one review; read and compare as many as you can from the most diverse sources. An agreement in reviews will often reveal which panels are closer to being legit.

The second slimming tip is to visit discussion boards run by people who have tried paid surveys. Victims of scams commonly use these forums to share their experiences to prevent other participants from undergoing the same fate. Still, we admonish you to be careful in whose stories you will believe. Shills and ropers penetrate discussions like these to promote their fake survey panels.

If you see similar success stories relating to the same panel posted in different discussions, you are correct in assuming they are false. Research will narrow down your prospects, and when you have two handfuls of panels that have passed scrutiny (you will find it frustrating to join only one panel if your aim is to earn money), subject them to final filtering by checking for the following:

1.    Transparency – Authentic paid survey panels have no fear in showing people their history, their address, and their contact information. The inclusion of their founder’s names and the business’ affiliations are good signs. Perform tests by sending them inquiries through the email address they give. Even better, call them if they posted a phone number. An immediate response tells you that they’re in the business for a good reason. Converse with the personnel and do not be afraid to ask them about the benefits of their panel.
2.    Clarity - This touches plenty of aspects. An authentic survey panel must possess clarity in the terms and conditions it imposes on members. It must have a set of guidelines on how the surveys are distributed, and how the members can earn their profit. What medium will be used to transfer the money to you? What is the system followed in granting points for each completed survey? How do you qualify for surveys?

3.    Realism – Above all, are the rewards they promise you believable? If you are having doubts, don’t take risk. Turn to the next panel in your list. Remember that no one can earn their entire livelihood through paid surveys alone. It is a good way to earn extra pocket money, but not a good replacement for actual jobs.
