Take Online Surveys for CASH! I'm sure you have seen ads like these all
over the Internet. Can you make money taking surveys or is it just
another scam?

The answer is yes. You can get paid to take surveys Online. Many people
make money daily taking surveys while sitting at home.

There are many companies that will pay you to participate in Online
surveys, focus groups, and product tests. These are market research
companies that are paid by large companies to find out what the public
feels about their products. They want to know if their advertising
campaigns are working and how everyday people feel about their products.
Large corporations spend a huge amount every year on advertising. So
paying you a few dollars to find out if their advertising is working is
not that big of a deal. They hire market research companies and the
market research companies send out surveys to everyday people to see what
is appealing to the public.

There are also several misconceptions about taking paid surveys Online.
Many advertisements will tell you that you can make up to $250 an hour
taking paid surveys. It is possible to be compensated $250 for
participating in an important study or focus group, however the average
paid survey will pay you between $2 and $20. This can add up very
quickly, which is why so many people are taking advantage of this Online
income generator. One thing I have learned over the years is it takes
time to make money so it depends on how much time you put into it like
anything else.

There are different kinds of paid survey sites. There are paid survey
directories, or databases, and there are the actual paid survey
companies. A paid survey, or market research company, is the actual
company that will send you the paid surveys. And also the one that will
compensate you for your participation.
An example of a paid survey company is NFO. NFO has been around for over
many years and is one of the major paid survey companies on the Internet.
When joining a paid survey site like NFO you are notified by email when
your participation in a paid survey is needed. You can then choose to
take the paid survey or simply ignore it. You are told how much you will
be paid for taking each survey and how long the paid survey should take
to complete. Companies like NFO My Survey are always free to join. A
individual paid survey company will never ask you to pay a fee to join.

Another type of site is a paid survey directory, or database. Paid survey
databases provide directories of paid survey companies. These are the
sites you go to to find companies that will pay you to participate in
Online surveys. There are several databases you can join. But most Online
paid survey databases are not free. Paid Survey database companies charge
about $35 - $60 for their paid surveys directory.

The major benefit to these types of programs is that it saves you time
and time is money. You could spend hours searching the Internet for Free
Survey companies on your own or you can join one of these Survey database
companies that have done the leg work for you. I lean toward Paid Survey
directory database companies myself, because I felt I could make more
taking surveys during the time I would be going through the many Survey
companies. Time is money and many of the companies I have on my website
charge a modest fee for access to their database.

It's really whatever is best for you and your time constraints. Many
people are think that when they join these membership sites they will
automatically start receiving paid surveys. A membership in one of the
Paid Survey database sites does not actually send paid surveys. They
offer a directory of pre-screened companies that you join that send paid
surveys Online. They give you access to the Survey companies they feel
are the best options. When using these companies you get a tutorial on
how to be successful answering paid surveys and a compiled list of paid
survey companies with details on each company as to whether you get cash,
rewards or both. They will have a link to each company they recommend and
you are enrolling in a flash.

If you are looking for a full-time income Online, paid surveys may not be
the thing for you. Although you can make good money taking paid surveys
Online, more than likely it will not be enough to make you rich. If you
want to make some extra money without much effort then paid surveys is
the way to go.

The key to getting paid to take surveys Online is joining as many of
these paid survey companies as possible. Most paid survey sites will only
send a few paid surveys a month. This will vary from company to company.

In addition you will need to do the following when taking paid surveys

1. Setup a unique email address for you paid surveys.

2. Setup a PayPal account and add you survey email address to it.
3. always use unique passwords when registering with Survey companies.

So the logic is, the more survey companies you belong to the more survey
invitations you will receive. And the more money you will make. It's a
good idea to start off with around 20 to 30 paid survey companies. Each
one will only take a few minutes to sign up for and is well worth it.
There are approximately 500 paid survey companies you can join. And once
you have joined the main ones you can go back and join others to receive
even more paid surveys. Of 500 paid survey companies I would have to say
that there are about 50-60 that will send you paid surveys on a regular
basis. The rest may only send one a month or even less. So starting with
the top paid surveys is obviously the best way to go.

You must answer a few questions before taking a survey to see if you fit
the profile for the type of person the company is interested in. After
answering a few questions you can start to see how you should answer to
make yourself qualify. For instance, most paid survey questions will ask
you if you work in a certain industry, or any type of market research or
advertising business. The answer to a question like this should almost
always be no. They do not want people who know the market research
business taking their surveys. And you will almost always not qualify for
the paid survey.

Now that you have all the information you need it's up to you to decide
if paid surveys is for you or not. I hope that this article has provided
you with the information that will enable you to make an informed

In summary you have one of two options. You   can either use a Paid Survey
Directory company that will give you access   to their pre-screen database
including tutorials on how to make the most   money from Online paid
surveys or you can spend the time Online to   do the research yourself and
join each company individually.
