Unless you've been hiding under a rock lately, I'm sure you've heard how you can make money by completing paid surveys online. The only problem with what you've probably seen, is that sites that list these companies want you to pay them for list. Give me a break! Don't ever pay someone for something that you can get for free.
There are a ton of these research companies looking for people like you to give your opinion, and they will pay you cash for it. Most importantly, it doesn't cost a thing to join.
Paid survey participation is fun and free, and in my opinion, not intended to be sold. However, there is a well known company online, I won't mention name, that will charge you 70 bucks,for a list of research companies that conduct paid surveys. Hold up, 70 bucks? Why pay them 70 freaking dollars when all you have to do is find research companies that conduct surveys yourself?
Now, I'm not going sit here and knock companies that charge you for a list, but what I am going do is tell you what I know. I'll give it to you straight up.
First, there are several types of surveys that you can participate in for free, which include online surveys, phone surveys, mail surveys and product testing. For this article I will only be addressing online surveys, because that is what I know most about, that is what I do. Also for purpose of this article, information I will be providing pertains to one particular paid survey company. This company pays you cash! That's why I like it so much. You don't need to accumulate points or credits to purchase items or receive coupons or any of that nonsense. You get paid cold hard cash immediately after completing survey!
Let me tell you this too, if you think you can get rich taking online surveys then you are sadly mistaken. Some of these claims of $25 to $100 per hour are simply ridiculous! If that were case wouldn't everyone be doing it? Exactly! Would I even be sitting here writing this if I could be taking a survey that pays 100 bucks an hour? No. You better believe I'd be counting my money, while soaking up sun on some exotic vacation resort far from here! But on serious side, you can and will make some extra money if you join (for free I might add).
Basically all you have to do is find surveys that are free to join. (I'll give you a link to one I use at end of this article.) Then you just fill out simple registration form and questionnaire. The questionnaire is what research company uses to determine which surveys you best qualify for.
