Cash Survey Tips

question mark Cash Survey TipsIt’s all very well signing up to a load of paid surveys websites and waiting for the money to start rolling in, but what online money making veterans tend to forget are the day to day tasks that we all take for granted.


I was giving some advice the other day to a friend that wanted to start taking paid surveys for a bit of extra cash, I gave him some basic tips and this website address to do some research. He came back a few days later delighted that he’d completed his first survey and had his account credited with his first online earnings.

A few weeks later however he came back asking “how do you manage to keep on top of all your emails?” and “don’t you get bored of filling out my contact details?” And I realised that I hadn’t given him the most basic advice, because I do it on a daily basis, it completely slipped my mind.

So here goes;

1) Set up a separate email account to sign up to paid survey sites. YOU WILL GET SPAMMED. And it’s also a lot easier to keep your personal and work accounts organised if they are separate.

2) Check your email accounts on a daily basis, most surveys only stay live until the required number of participants have completed them, so get in there early.

3) A lot of software packages have the ability to store personal information to make filling in forms quicker and less tedious. We recommend RoboForm or the the Autofill feature in the Google Toolbar.

4) Bookmark your paid survey sites and keep your bookmarks organised. Most browsers have the capability to drag and drop sites onto a bookmark bar along the top. Bookmark links to your profiles on the various paid survey sites this way you will have easy access to all of the sites you use regularly.

5) Don’t be lazy – set up your profile page. Completing your profile page on a paid survey site has a lot more benifits that say setting up a facebook profile page. It allows the paid survey company to match you with relevant surveys more easily and increases your chance of getting the higher paid surveys in the future.

6) Be honest when you are answering the surveys. Your opinions are important to the company conducting the survey, after all, they are paying you for them. They are entitled to get an honest opinion in return for the rewards they give you.

Well that’s it. All the little things that make my life taking paid surveys easier and less time consuming. Hope it helps some newbies on their way to start getting paid for taking surveys.

I wish I’d found this when I first started – you’re right, it comes as second nature now but it was a pain when I was new to it.
