Making money with surveys

Updated on May 31, 2011

With the Internet, there are several ways of making some extra money. Even if you don't want to spend too much time building a business for yourself, you can use the opportunity to make some extra cash for special occasions.

I already discussed several opportunities of making money, such as using AdSense, doing affiliates work, and investing in real state. Another opportunity is answering surveys, such as I will describe in the following.

How does it work?

By answering surveys, you can make good profit by just looking at web sites and answering easy questions about products, and about consumer preferences. It is easy work and it pays well.

Finding extra cash

For example, you may be interested in buying a new game console, such as the new PS3, but think that it would be too much for your home budget. Or, at the end of the year, you want to give more Holiday gifts for your family and friends, without over stretching your accounts. This is the moment when you really would like to find some extra cash to pay for these little extra expenses.

Today, I am going to talk about a new way of making this extra money for your needs. Instead of using the Internet without receiving anything, you can get paid for surfing the web. You can make some money by just answering a few questions and learning about products available in the Internet.

Why Companies What to Hire You

Good products are made with research. The more people participate in the research, better the final product will be. A big company needs to rely on the opinion of thousands of normal people in order to achive the quality that is required.

However, it is not easy to find people available to do the research for a new product. Most people few that they are too busy to participate on this. That is why big companies offer money to know what you opinion is on certain products.

For example, a clothing company may be interested in know what are the habits of people of ages 18 to 25. One easy to do this is using the Internet to ask the question they want answered. It is just as easy for them to create a web site or ask another company to conduct the study using the web. In either case, they are willing to spend money to convice the surveyed people to participate on their market research. One of these people can be you!

How to find the opportunity with Surveys?

You can find surveys to fill with several companies. The first place to go is your preferred search engine and type "survey". You will see hundreds of companies offerering such survey services.

Most of the survey companies use this as an opportunity to show the different products that you can answer questions about. They will then show a simple form that will request information about your age, basic consuming habbits, and related data.

You should expect to start receiving survey requests right away. These companies have hundreds of clients that need answers to survey questions, and they will be willing and happy to send you surveys as soon as you sign in. Then, it is up to you how much you can handle per day. The more work you do, the more rewards you will receive.
