Further to my post on eBooks last week I have come across a lot of people that are buying up eBooks and programs that promise that you can make a fortune online by simply filling out surveys. While it is possible to take surveys for money, you have to know how to do these things step-by-step.
I did a ‘step by step’ post a few weeks ago outlining the nuts and bolts of starting out taking surveys for money, but have still recieved a few messages asking me if it actually works.
Most of the companies I have joined that promise you will be making $20,000+ per month have been scams. But you can make money with paid surveys – you just need to know which companies have the highest payouts and the best resources for you.
Now, I want to share a little tip with you. The place you are going to make most of your money is by doing focus groups. Focus groups are where you call into a conference call and give opinions and thoughts about products and services. That is all there is to it. They are lengthy, but well worth the time investment. You can make anywhere from $50-$100 from just one focus group. I usually get one or two of these per month because they are not as common as regular surveys.
Now, how much can you really make doing surveys for money? This is totally up to you. Some of the surveys that have high payouts are pretty lengthy, so be prepared to answer a lot of questions. On average, for each survey you complete you will get around $15-$20. Some pay higher, and some pay less. On a monthly basis, if you do surveys 5 days a week, and do one focus group per month, you can realistically make anywhere from $1,500 to $2,000 if you do 5 surveys a day, 5 days a week. This is not bad for a few surveys each day, but if you don’t have that much time to commit to it – then yes – your payout will be lower.
So, does taking surveys for money really work? My answer is YES. If you know how to get quality surveys and know where to get them, you can easily earn about $1,000 per month.
One survey review site I have come across is Paid2Review.co.uk – ALL of the programs they promote are legitimate work at home business ideas and have been tried and tested by the site owners them selves. So if you haven’t chosen your cash survey provider, take a look at Paid2Review.
