If you have a busy life, taking surveys for cash is a great way to earn some extra money without having to invest a lot of time. Not only is it something you can do with your free time, but it’s also quite enjoyable to do. Well, I think so at least!
To begin with, I’d like to dispel those myths that are flying all around the internet. Those myths say that you can’t actually complete surveys for cash.
That is a lie. I don’t know why they say that, because I can’t see how they even benefit from telling you this! Let me just say up front that it is possible to take surveys for money. However, the myths about you earning $250 an hour filling out surveys are also lies (as far as I have seen).
That being said, let me tell you how you can earn money taking online surveys. How it works is that big companies (Target, McDonalds, etc.) need to get information on their consumers. The most effective way for them to do this is by paying the consumers to fill out a survey about themselves. They want your information so badly that they will even pay you! Pretty sweet deal for us huh?
The key to make money taking surveys is to take a lot of surveys. Shocking, I know. However, despite the obviousness, it’s something that many survey takers overlook. You may be asking, “Well how do I take lots of surveys?” The answer to that, sign up for a lot of survey companies. Even more shocking right? Signing up for these companies can be tricky though, because there are lots of scam web pages out here. A good rule of thumb to see if the site is legitimate is this, if YOU have to pay THEM to sign up, they are most likely a scam.
To help you get started right away, I’ve put together a list of the best companies to start taking surveys for cash. I’ve spent hours compiling this list, so I know how much time it will save you!
Once you have signed up for enough companies, you will begin to receive survey invitations. Your first offers may have fairly low pay outs, but this is only because the companies need to “test drive” you. If you complete these first survey offers quickly and honestly, then you will begin to receive survey invitations with higher and higher incentives.
One last word of wisdom before you get started completing surveys for cash, and that is to take a minute and think about your morals. At some point it may be very tempting for you to lie about your information so that you can take a survey, so decide before that happens to tell the truth! It’s the right thing to do, these companies are paying big money to get information, and if they are going to give you real money, it’s only fair that you give them REAL information! Sorry, I just needed to say that. Now go out there and start taking surveys for cash, and have fun with it!
