Hi folks. Today I want to talk about real cash surveys and also what they are, how to use them and also where to find them. I have been reviewing several survey sites and saw some good ones and also bad ones. There are also a lot of survey sites and it can be hard to keep track on them all. Before I go into more detail about survey sites, let me give you a brief background on surveys.
What are surveys and do they offer real cash?
Most of them offer cash, but some of them also offer them in the form of gift vouchers. Online surveys form a big part of the marketing research sector and they provide enormous value to companies. The data that they provide can reduce the risk if the company decides to launch a new product. For a company to launch a new product it will cost them millions of dollars to implement and start the mass manufacturing process.
Now what if they launch their product and they do not make any sales? They will then lose a lot of money in the process. Some of these survey panels also provide focus groups and product testing that can also help the companies to make informed decisions on whether they are ready to launch their product.
All they need to do is to affiliate with survey panels that are able to perform this research for them. The survey panels will then go out and search for people that are willing to complete these surveys and then offer them a reward for their efforts.
How to make money from online surveys?
This is a very good question and let me explain it to you. There is actually more than one way to make money from online surveys. Some of them pay more than others and some can also be a lot of fun to do. So let me explain them below.
- Filling out surveys. This is the most popular and also the most available way to make money with survey panels. They usually pay at a rate between $0.5 up to $7 per survey. These surveys can also range from 5 up to 30 minutes to complete. They are usually presented through multiple choice questions where you only click with your mouse.
- Focus group. This is probably the biggest way to make money with online surveys. A Focus group is almost like surveys, but they are more intense and focus more on a targeted subject rather than a broad subject like normal surveys. They pay between $50 or even up to $200 and normally lasts up to 2 hours. The only negative thing about them is that they can be very hard to get by, but are really worth it.
- Product testing. This one is also one of my favourites and also pays a lot. Most of these offers you have to take a free trial and then you have to test the product until the free trial is over. Just remember to stop your trial in time if you do not want the product. some of these offers also do not include a trial. It can be a free dinner at a restaurant where you must give the restaurant a score or you can also get beauty products to test.
- Playing games. Though they do not pay much, they can be very fun to do. If you already like playing games, then this can be for you.
- Read e-mails. For me this one is really a waste of time and pay very little. I would not recommend wasting time on this one.
- Making money surfing the web. It is also a fast way to make money for what you are already doing. Some survey panels require you to install an app on your computer that will trace what you search online.
- Watch videos online. This one can also be fun to do. I know of a survey panel that uses webcam to record you, while watching a short video clip. They will then study your reactions while you watch this clip. This one is also a great way to see if a commercial is funny or not.
Where can I find these survey panels?
I see that most people do not even know where to start if they are a beginner and it is very important to know which survey panels to join. There is also a lot of mistakes that people make that could cost them their membership at these site or decrease your chances of ever getting invited to participate in a survey.
Now where can you find a guide or a couple of lessons that will show you in the right direction?
Now this is where Survey 101 comes into play. This is a training guide that I have created online to help people like you to make more money with online surveys. It will also be updated frequently with new training and also new survey panels that you can join.
My final word
Making money through online surveys is a legit way to make money online. Though they might have a limited earning ability, you will never find an easier way to earn money online.
