By now you’ve probably heard the hype about making money by taking online surveys. You’re probably wondering about whether one can really make money by taking these surveys or not. Well I’ve been a member of at least 10 of these panels and I can honestly tell you that you can! However, it’s not as simple as clicking some answers and hoping to make a dollar or two. Also, bear in mind that you won’t get rich at all by taking these surveys, but they will certainly help pay a few bills and buy a few DVDs here and there.
I will now show you how to succeed with these surveys and make a little money:
First you will need to find some reputable survey panels and join them. Two websites that are good for finding these panels are surveypolice.com and online-paid-surveys.net.
Next, you will need to fill out some details in your profile and take some profiling surveys. These profiling surveys are VERY important to your success as a panelist. Be sure to fill out each and every one of them since they can match you to surveys that pertain to your hobbies, skills, latest purchases etc.
After you’ve done all this, all you can do is wait for some surveys to appear in your Inbox. If you are a match for the survey (and are registered with a reputable panel), you should be paid in full as promised. If not, you will be disqualified and paid little or nothing. If you are disqualified, don’t get discouraged – you are sure to qualify for some surveys later on! Also keep in mind that some surveys are actually pre-qualifier surveys that determine if you’re a perfect candidate for an upcoming study that will most certainly pay more.
Now comes the big question: How do I make money taking these surveys? Well the answer is simple: You take the surveys! Make sure you take them regularly so you can build a good reputation with the survey panels…especially at first. Most of these panels do watch and see if you will be a reliable, honest panelist, so make sure you are honest and serious at all times about these surveys! If you are a reliable panelist, you are sure to get more and more surveys and the money will build up! However, do keep in mind the type of panelist an online survey panel wants is one who is serious about making their voice heard and one who genuinely wants to make a difference in the marketplace.
Now that you know the essentials about being a member of an online survey panel, go out there, make your voice heard, and make some money! Good luck in all your endeavours!
