Get Paid To Take Surveys Online

Updated on September 25, 2014

Get paid to take surveys online for free, and get cash for your unbiased opinion on their products it's a win win for both parties involved buy dedicating a few hours a day you can easily make a extra $100 to $200 a month and even more if you decide to go full time. This is not a get rich quick scheme although it is absolutely free to join most online survey companies but like anything what you put in you will eventually get a good return on your investment which is of course, your time. Surveys are a good way to improve the quality of products that companies sell and they are willing to pay you for it.


Giving a honest opinion

To get paid doing online surveys relies allot on giving honest and truthful opinions, to make the process easier choose a survey company that suites your current situation .Lets say your a full time mom well then you may choose to fill in surveys about house hold products or children's clothes or toy's the choice is yours. So to make the experience a pleasure for you , choose a survey that is related to your current living situation this will help filling out those surveys that much easier. Remember getting paid for online surveys is all about improving products and services so it is important to give a honest opinion.

Online Paid Survey Scams

You can do a search on  scam forums, such as scam.com or ripoff.com  for comments  from other consumers who think they've been handed the short end of the stick by online paid survey scams. It pays to do a search on the program before signing up just to be sure. With any online program read all of the fine print  and ask questions about the program itself if it's too good to be true than it probably is. Think twice about submitting your personal information to any paid surveys site that don't provide you with a  clear privacy policy,  also read disclaimers, terms and conditions and any other fine print. Like any online program do a thorough search and make sure that everything is legit before signing up.

Screening questions

A screening question may be asked of you to determine whether you are qualified to answer the surveys presented to you. For instance, you wouldn't want to ask someone their opinions on sports products without first "screening" them to find out if they actually play sports.You may be screened on several variables  e.g., age, gender, experience etc... so just be prepared for this process when joining.

Focus Groups

Focus Groups is where the real money is if you are fortunate enough to join one of these groups you may earn anything from $20 to $35 to participate in a group discussion about certain products you can simply apply to join a group or the company will select you based on the screening process.Focus groups are a great way to meet other surveyors and their own personal opinions on what they think about certain products so what ever survey program you choose just make sure it suites your needs as well as the companies.

      Sounds good. I think I'm going to take a dive in and see if there are any surveys left.
