    To all you great hubbers, i have a question.
    I think i´ve read about a hundred hubs, about paid surveys, and they all say that you can make so many money with them, and it is so easy to join.
    When i read these things, i get skeptical right away, so now i will try some professionel advice,are these surveys for real.
    I will thank you guys up front, for all the great help i always get when i ask my dumb questions

    I have tried almost everything on the web to make money except porn. I tried several companies that were doing the survey stuff. Many of them wanted my CC # for their trial etc. I write and make money daily. I normally have 3-5 articles waiting to be reviewed. E-bay affiliate program has done the best for me. It makes money every month. You just need a website with content that get traffic.

    Certainly I am no expert and but if you can get traffic to a website including hubpages and get people cookied you will make money. Its really not that hard It just is work.
    Residual income is where its at but in 10 years I haven't found a program that has worked for me yet.

    I tried a lot of these and the ones I tried turned out to be one of two things:

    1) they say it is free to join (it really is) but then once you are a member, you have to pay for a list of companies or

    2) once you sign up and start filling out the surveys, they aren't actually surveys, they are "offers" and you have to accept the offer before you get paid, which can include offers for credit cards, subscriptions to magazines or services, things of that nature, which, in the end you have to pay for.

    I ended up with an inbox full of nothing but crap from doing those between the "offers" that they sent and the spam from all of those you fill out giving out your contact info. Geez! It took me about a year before all that started to die down!

    I am very skeptical about any work from home program that says it is totally free to join because, even though you can join free, in most cases, you find that your membership is useless unless you upgrade or some other type of purchase. I wish you the best!
