There are hundreds of companies worldwide who are looking for people like you who want to earn money completing surveys. The Manufacturers of products often want to know why one product is preferred to another, so it employs a market research company to get answers to the main questions it has. The market research company then employs a survey company, the survey company typically supplies the qualifying questions like how many of product X do you buy a month? Which geographic locations? Between them “The Survey Form” is created, and presented for completion and return.
Manufacturers and brand name companies want to know what consumers really think about their products and services, so to get the feedback they will often give away products that they want to be tested, or simply just pay for the feedback through paid surveys.
Paid survey takers are anonymous, and because everything is done online, it can be done at a time when it suits the survey taker. All you have to do to get paid to take surveys is to get on the survey makers list and respond to the surveys you are offered. These free surveys have the added bonus of you being able to share your opinion, and help to shape new products arriving on the market, shops, record companies, high st fashion outlets, medical tests, pharmaceuticals, etc.
Realistically, you will earn somewhere between a couple bucks to a few thousand dollars you will not become a Millionaire completing paid surveys, this mindset is the reason why so many people fail. Completing paid surveys, you can reasonably expect to earn enough to pay off bills, buy treats for the family, go out for dinners, or make your car loan repayments, a weekend away or short break holiday to somewhere really nice.
Keep these two things in mind and they will help you, be successful when completing surveys.
1. Do not try to beat the system by taking shortcuts i.e. ticking the same answers in different questionnaires to save time, in the belief that the quicker I can do each survey, the more surveys I do, the more I will earn. A trained evaluator inspects the answers in every survey and you will not be paid if you are found to have cheated, worse still you might be kicked off the panel and your account closed.
2. Do not try to “second guess” your answers to the questions. You will only “second guess” an answer if your eligibility to do the survey in the first place is in question i.e. when being assessed during pre-screening you have fabricated responses in order to have a better chance of being eligible to join in the survey. Focus groups discussions can offer $150 per session and you might be tempted to emulate the response of eligible candidates in order to participate.
Remember the first time you attempt to get on to the survey panel will seem like a lot of work because of the number of questions you are asked, this is called pre-screening and it is done to ensure that you are sent the most suitable surveys for your background, demographic, and location. Ensure you include leisure pursuits, hobbies, or interesting places you may have visited, as this will widen the scope of surveys that may be sent to you.
If you are honest and truthful at this stage of the process, then you will receive many surveys for which you will be eligible, and more importantly be able to complete them quickly and easily and have fun doing them.
Successful survey takers do not stay with only one market research company. The secret to succeeding with online paid surveys is, be registered with as many good paying market research companies as possible. You will succeed in increasing your income, with many survey companies as this will bring you a steady stream of surveys to participate in.
