Increase Your Earning From Survey Sites
Before you get started, some things you need to know.
I've seen a lot of people asking about paid survey sites and validity. So I'm gonna share my research for anyone thinking about looking for survey panels. I generate enough from just 3 or 4 sites to cover my spending online and offline. I paid for every bit of my baby gear this way, and also Christmas. I started doing surveys about a year ago, and around the summer time, I had gone through enough sites to know which ones were legitimate. I tried many survey sites and weeded out the ones that truly work for me and left the others alone. Before I share these sites with you, a few tips, for those of you who do surveys already, you'll probably be familiar with some of these. However for those of you new to survey taking and looking for easy ways to generate a little spending cash from home, this will be a great help to you.
Important to Remember
Number 1: It is best if you open a separate email account solely for survey use. Once you start doing these, they email the invites to you for each survey, and it's much easier, and also doesn't overload your regular, personal email account with survey invites.
Number 2: Never pay for any opportunity to do surveys for cash. Most likely it's scam, or it's just not worth it because you give more than you actually get. There are more opportunities to receive legitimate survey chances without spending a dime. Some sites do have several means of earning money in addition to surveys. These are okay, because you can choose to just do the surveys, or do an offer every now and then. Your choice.
Number 3: For the best payment experience, you will need a Paypal account if you don't already have one. This is a safe and fast way to receive payment, and also convenient if you shop online because this is the preference of many retailers also. I prefer to get paid with paypal, and the best survey sites pay with paypal.
Number 4: Once you join a survey site, most will have a set of profile questions to fill out. Some will reward you for doing these and some will not. However, the mini surveys pertain to you and your interests, habits, family lifestyle etc, and if you want to receive more surveys, than you need to make sure to fill these out. It will allow companies to better match you to more survey opportunities.
Number 5: Also once you join a survey site, most of the survey invitations are going to come to you via email. however, there are some sites that may rarely send you an invite. This doesn't mean they aren't available, you just need to remember to log in to the website occasionally and check your dashboard. There will usually be long lists of surveys waiting.
You will not get rich from this, so if that's what you're striving for, you need to find something other than survey sites. You can however, earn a little extra spending cash to use as you wish. Some sites, I cash out often to my paypal, and other sites, I let add up until there is a need, and by the time, say Christmas, rolls around, sometimes you have enough in one place to pay for your Christmas. Talk about a way to start the year if you plan to start saving money. Spend what you make online, and save the other income in your household. Say it with me...."Cha-Ching".
