How to Make Money from Online Surveys

Many of us have been there. We’re sitting at home, bored because there’s nothing to do or nowhere to go. So we get a kick out of watching TV, particularly the news. We find it fascinating how events that happen thousands of miles away can affect us here in the United States. That’s when we realize that we’ve been neglecting our primary source of income: the internet.

What if there was a way we could make some extra cash online? What if we could get paid to take surveys that would help companies learn about us and what we want?

The most basic way would be to do some online surveys for money or prizes. You would just have to be willing to take some time out of your day to complete these tasks (more on that later).

It turns out there are several ways we can make extra cash online without any specific training. Some of these ways make perfect additional revenue streams for the time spent doing them. Think about all the things you already do each day, whether paid or unpaid. If you’re reading this article, I assume you have an internet connection, a computer, and you’re pretty tech-savvy. You can probably get credit card statements submitted online. You could take online surveys, which is what we’ll discuss in this article.

Take Online Surveys

I don’t mean to suggest that you should start taking online surveys right away. First, you should try a few different sites to see which ones suit you. There are hundreds of sites where you can take online surveys, so you’ll have your pick of the litter. Don’t worry; we’ll tell you what to look out for.

The first thing you’ll want to do is register. This will only take a few minutes, and it’s free. Then, you’ll need to fill out some basic information about yourself. This includes what city you’re in, your age, and whether you’re a man or a woman. If you’re over 18, you’re going to want to make sure you verify your identity. You can do this by entering in some basic personal information (like your name, birth date, and email).

Depending on the survey site, you may be required to verify your email account before you can start taking surveys. Once you’re set up, you’ll see a dashboard with your profile picture on it. Above your picture, it will say SUSER, where USER is the name of the survey site. If you click on your picture, you’ll see some option boxes below. One of these options is called Join Now. Clicking this button will take you to the payment page for that survey site. In most cases, you’ll have to wait for payment authorization before you can take the survey.

Pay Attention To The Rules

There are a few things you need to keep in mind when taking online surveys. The first and most important rule is: don’t fill out more than one survey from the same site in a day. This could earn you disqualification rewards or penalties. Sometimes these rules are not clearly stated, so it is up to you to figure them out.

The second important thing is: do only as many surveys as you can handle. It is not worth it to do hundreds of surveys a day, when in reality you can only complete two or three. This will seriously sap your energy and could cause you to lose out on other opportunities.

The last thing is: take your time. Don’t rush through the surveys. It will either take you longer to complete them or you’ll get fewer points. You should also try to avoid clicking too many links in a row. This will also make you lose a little bit of your time, so it’s better to wait until you’re bored or have nothing else to do.

Keep Your Identity To Yourself

You’ve probably heard of online marketers who promote products using fake identities. These are the scammers we mentioned earlier. If you’re going to take online surveys, you don’t want to give them your real identity, because they might steal it and use it for their own purposes. This might not seem like a big deal, but it can be if you’re not careful. There are measures you can take to prevent this from happening.

The first and most obvious way is to keep your identity to yourself. This means avoiding online marketers who might end up using your information for fraudulent activities. You can use fake information or a fake email address, which can be easily changed if needed. For example, if you’re doing research for school and a potential employer asks for your identity, you can simply tell them you’re a student without giving them your real name. This is also why it’s important to keep your profile picture anonymous. People can still find you on social media sites even if you use a pseudonym, so make sure your profile picture does not contain any personally identifiable information.

Get Paid In Cash

If you’re a fan of crypto-currencies like Bitcoin and Amazon’s Cash App, you might be excited to learn that some sites allow you to be paid in cash. For example, you can visit survey site Swagbucks and enter a captcha to unlock the button that allows you to take surveys and get paid in cash.

The best part about this option is that you don’t need a bank account to get paid. You can use whatever method of payment you prefer, including cash, credit card, or even gift card. It basically depends on how you want to be paid. Swagbucks is one of the older survey sites that still allows this, and it’s popular because people want to avoid credit card intermediaries like PayPal and Venmo. These companies take a cut out of every transaction. By using a credit card or PayPal account to get paid, you’re giving them more of your personal information than you need to.

Make Money With Surveys In The News

Even if you don’t participate in online surveys, you might still know people who do. The news is filled with stories of people who’ve made thousands of dollars from home by taking online surveys. If you’re looking for a way to make extra cash, you could use the information you learn from surveys to help you figure out what news stories are relevant to you.

You can take surveys at sites like Survey Junkie, Swagbucks, OneOpinion, Ipsos iSay, American Association of Advertising Agencies (4A’s) and Market Master.

The great thing about these opportunities is they’re pretty easy to make money from. You don’t need any special training beyond what you already have. Some of these sites even allow you to make money by encouraging members of the community to take your surveys. If you want to get paid to take surveys, this is a great way to quickly make money online without any special training.

Make Money With Survey Sites

Depending on your interests and what type of work environment you prefer, you might be interested in exploring the worlds of online survey taking. There are several survey sites out there that allow you to make money online just by taking surveys. You don’t need a specific skill set to participate. You just need a computer, an internet connection, and a few minutes of your time to fill out the surveys.

Some of the more popular survey sites include Survey Junkie (especially if you’re looking to make some extra cash), Swagbucks, OneOpinion, Ipsos iSay, American Association of Advertising Agencies (4A’s) and Market Master.

The great thing about these survey sites is they’re a quick and easy way to make money online, and some of them allow you to get paid in cash. Some of these sites also specialize in paying you to take surveys at other companies, so you can make money online while helping companies learn about consumer behavior.

Now, you might be thinking that all this talk of money is making you a little bit anxious to get started, but don’t worry, we’re not going to rush you into getting involved. As we mentioned earlier, you should try a few different survey sites before you decide which one is the best fit for you. In the meantime, stay tuned, because we have a whole lot more where this came from.
