Yes you can. Taking online surveys is the easiest way that I know that you can legally make money online. You don’t need to know any computer programming or any have any specialized knowledge. You just answer questions. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
Just who is taking all of these surveys? Good question. There are lots of really big companies out taking surveys. They used to have people in the mall or at the grocery store taking surveys. They would come up and ask you to spend a few minutes answering questions. I remember getting a survey while I was standing in line at the movie.
It was hard work for the people conducting the surveys, because people just didn’t like being interrupted at the mall. But the companies did it because they want to know what the guy on the street actually thinks about their product.
Companies like Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Reebok and others are now turning to the internet to get peoples opinions. And they will pay you for your opinion. Because they no longer have to pay survey takers to ask you questions, they are able to pay you for your time.
Now, you aren’t going to get rich overnight taking surveys, but you can get a decent part time income. The average survey pays between $5 and $50 for filling it out. The more complex the survey, obviously, the higher the compensation, but if you get paid $5 to take a survey and it only takes ten minutes to fill out, you are making $30 per hour.
How do you find the companies that have the surveys? There are lots of companies that act as survey brokers. They locate the companies that pay for the surveys, and will provide the information to you for a fee.
There are some companies that provide free surveys as well. But personally, I have never had good luck with the “free” surveys. Maybe it’s just me, but I always felt that you have to fill out a lot of information and get nothing in return.
I have used a couple of the paid survey sites, and had much better results. I guess it just boils down that you get what you pay for.
If you decide to go with the paid survey sites, then I recommend that you get a separate email account for the surveys. The survey companies will send you a lot of information, and it can flood your email in box, and you don’t want to miss your regular emails.
If you want good success with the survey sites, you need to treat it like a business, and spend a set number of hours every day working at it. Remember, you get paid based on the number of surveys you fill out.
