What YOU Need
to Know about
 Paid Surveys!
Paid Surveys are one of the most well known
topics on the internet when it comes to
making money online. Very often people
question the legitimacy of online surveys.
They ask things like “Can I really make money
from surveys?” or “Is it really easy to do?” or
most asked “Do I have to pay money to take
surveys?”

 If you're one of these people who wonders
about this then you came to the right place,
because I'm going to give you the low down
on Paid Surveys, and clear up any confusion
concerning them...
What Are Paid Surveys?
Paid Surveys are basically online questionnaires
concerning studies on different topics. These
questionnaires are given to everyday people like
you and me, and we simply give our personal
opinions on the study. Now maybe some of you
are wondering "Why would they want my
opinions?" or "What happens after I take the
surveys?" Here's why: Paid surveys are operated
by market research companies who dedicates
their work in researching different name brand
products, mostly new ones. They do this by
collecting data which is our opinions we input into
the questionnaires, and then uses the statistics to
determine whether or not the products will fare
well in the markets. So basically we influence the
future of these products. This is why our opinions
are so very important!

Note: There are different kinds of Paid Surveys, but the most
known ones are: Product Testing, Focus Groups, and Mystery
Shopping. Here's an overview on them:
•   Product Testing is one of the most common
    paid surveys if not THE the most common on
    the internet. Sometimes when doing a survey,
    you're asked to test a new product in the
    comfort of your own home. When you do try
    out these products you're sent a follow up
    survey to answer questions concerning your
    experiences with that particular product.


–   Focus Groups are a special kind of paid
    surveys. While normal surveys only requires
    one person to answer questions on a
    particular topic, focus groups require more
    than one person to answer these questions.
    Market research companies do this to collect
    data on people's opinions as a group, instead
    of an individual. Now the awesome thing is
    that Focus Groups pays more than normal
    surveys. These studies are done via internet,
    telephone, and sometimes in-person. When the
    group completes the study they are paid for
    their time. How much the participant is paid
    depends on the subject and the amount of
    time it takes to complete the survey.

      Mystery Shopping is a completely different
      survey. You're sent an invite to shop at local
      stores, or eat in restaurants. You don't pay for
      the stores or restaurants you're sent to. The
      company does that for you! Once you 'mystery
      shopped' you're sent a follow up survey where
      you tell of your experiences of being a
      customer in that particular place. Once
      completed you're compensated for your time.
