Will completing surveys online make you money?

    I am looking to earn money online to support my online business.  I thought I would checkout these survey sights.  Are there any good survey sights out there that pay well?

      I talk about one of the paid survey sites I use on my blog (it's on my profile).  I would link you, but I'm not sure if that's allowed here.  I will say that I HATE paid surveys.  They pay very little, and are not really worth the time and effort.  However, if you get a group of referrals who do the work for you, they are a nice, steady stream of income.

      I would suggest you find another way to make extra money.  The survey sites that really will pay are willing to do so only if you subscribe to offers from their partners, i.e., spend money.

      There are some websites that offer contest/sweepstake entries per survey you're eligible to take.

      I probably went through just about every survey site with the same idea you have mind:  extra money.  But in the end, it proved to be a waste of time and energy.  And a little bit of money, too.

      There are a couple sites I still do surveys through (mysurvey.com and npdor.com), mostly because I enjoy doing so.  But if you're looking to make money, I'd say try something else.

    The best I've come across are:

    *Rewards central

    From them, it's taken me about 5 years, doing the basic stuff to make the same amount as I've made on hubpages in one year.

    Survey sites are low paying - yes, they might pay you $5 for a half hour survey, but most will only give you about 2-3 hours of surveys a week maximum.

    Plus, once you're done, you haven't learnt anything and you don't get anymore money.

    When you write on hubpages, whatever you write keeps earning and the earnings increase with time. Plus you'll learn about what works best as well as any information you research for your hubs.

    Best advice I've seen, said by a hubber after six months with only a handful of hubs:

    With just a few hubs I've started to earn a few dollars. And now I'm kicking myself, wondering what I'd have earnt if I wrote lots of hubs when I started.

    there are true market research and medical/educational surveys online that pay 25-100 usd per survey, but unlike the crappy "survey sites" you have to fit specific demographics to be eligible.

    Dig through 20+ pages of google returns skipping all the slick "survey sites" and you can get some real gold.

    Lol, you look like your in my demo so even if I had quick access to a list(bookmarks on another PC) of the sites right now, I probably couldn't share as spots are usually limited for the best surveys.

    nielsen actually sent me $4o in cash WITH the survey!

    There are sites that will pay you to fill out surveys. While you likely wont be able to quit your day job, you may be able to make a little extra pocket money.

    Yes, some.

    However, you could sacrifice some personal information (if you actually use real info) and you could open yourself up to spam.

    I'd recommend not using your normal email address, but make one just for these types of sites.

      To answer your question about surveys there are many that are legitimate. I joined a few and I'm still in the process of looking at other surveys and gather information and experience about each one of them, and then I will comeback to this post to share my experience, and write a blog and hub too. Globaltestmarket.com is one that I already joined. You have to take the survey as soon as they give it to you because it will expire easily. mysurvey.com and IPSOS survey panel are the others. I assume that Christmas time is coming, more surveys to take.

    In my experience they don't make tons of money for the effort you put in. Many surveys I couldn't take because of my location, age, and gender - and I ended up putting a lot of effort answering questions to be kicked out of the survey at a certain point before I was finished. It's up to you though!

    you probably could make money...if you don't live in Canada.  All the great survey sites wouldn't accept me because of my location.

    I've signed up for 2 survey sites and have got $5 at each site for completing a simple survey at both. But that's around a year ago, no survey filling offer since then!

    Basically it's a waste of money.
    I don't know about US or UK or Australia but I tried in Canada.
    It's not working. Couple of credits, couple of surveys, not eligible for this - not eligible for that. B*S* and nothing else.

    It took about 2 years for me to get $50 accumulated cash after doing many surveys (perhaps 1 or 2 per week average) each taking anywhere between 10 minutes to half an hour.

    Definitely not worth the time spent. Actually if the survey is long, we get bored and our quality of response becomes too casual and off tangent.

    After encashing my first payment, I discontinued my account. Not my cup of tea.

    I've been using SurveySavvy for a couple years and made about $120 doing a couple surveys a month. Certainly not much, but it is real money for relatively little effort. And sometimes you can get involved in some interesting trials.

      My sister also recommends Opinion Outpost. She has found she qualifies for many more surveys and it usually pays between $2 and $5 a survey. Also, you can cash out after only $5 in earnings.

    there are a lot of scam survey sites. You need to select the sites which are not scam and try participating in them...

    I currently do surveys from time to time online and I have made money. Surveyhead is one of my favorite sites. I worked with at least three or four survey sites. In order to make money from these surveys, first you must meet a few qualifications to qualify to take the survey and you must take these surveys quite frequently to make serious money. In the long run you can make as much as 100 to 150 dollars per month if you take at least one to two surveys a day assuming you meet the qualifications to take them and payout starts at $25.00 for one of the sites I have worked with. It is an easy way to make money if you do mine answering the same questions over and over from different surveys. It become a little reduntant after a few surveys.

    Interesting... I thought all "survey" sites were scams.

    1. melpor profile image90
      melporposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      No, most survey sites are not scams. A course you will not get rich overnight. I have registered to 4 survey sites, here are three of the four I am in, I can not remember the fourth one.

      Surveyhead.com (Pay by cash)
      MySurvey.com (Pay by Cash)
      SurveySpot.com (Pay by points redeemable for cash or rewards)

      I have received money from Surveyhead.com via my Paypal account.

    You may want to try Webeserve where you just post links and earn money.  I also make pretty good money here in Canada (someone else said there is no money for surveys in Canada, but there is).  I get paid $5 per survey from Pinecone Research.  It is paid to my paypal account within a couple of days.  I also received a check from Survey Lion just recently.  No, it was not an enormous check, but I was elated.  lol  Survey Head is good too.

    We have many sites where you get lot more information about earning money online. But we cannot trust them. From my experience I suggest you to visit money-online-with.com where they provide exact information and you can get what ever online job you required.
    Wish you good luck .

    I have spent more than 10 years online and I can call myself a webmaster as I have tried (almost) every possible way of earning money online. In my personal experience huge percent of those sites are just scum. Of course, you are able to find few worthy. Doing surveys, you will spend much time answering questions earning minimal returns over time.

    If you want to earn decent amount of cash, you will need to put focus on other ways of earning money online...
