Making money doing online surveys
There are many survey sites out there that provide the platform to users to take these surveys and get paid by the companies to give their opinion on different matters.
Honestly, Surveys are actually quite fun to take sometimes if you are bored and want to try something new. You can earn money for just giving your own opinion, how cool is that?
I still do it once it awhile when companies send me surveys through my e-mail.
Making it your hobby
Taking surveys can be a hobby too! It is one of mine as I find earning money for giving feedback is really
Remember that survey sites would not pay you hundreds or thousands of dollars a month for surveys, and that this is only a source of extra income.
You can sign up for multiple survey sites at a time to increase your potential for earning more as well. Most sites would inform you of a new survey through your email, so signing up for many would ensure regular inflow of surveys to take.
However, you must exercise caution to identify which sites are scams, and which are the legit ones.
How do i know if a site is a scam or not?
I know this question is in the back of many people’s mind since the Internet is full of scams. This is why I listed down the few things to look out for to avoid getting scammed on my article here.
Below this are some things related to survey sites to look for before signing up for a survey site.
1. Paying for a registration fee
Legit websites would not require you to pay ANY kind of fee at all. As such, you would want to avoid any sites that ask you to pay anything at all. There are so many survey sites that are free to use anyway.
2. Promise a big sum of money for surveys
Generally, the money you earn from surveys are just extra pocket money and do not make you rich overnight. Any sites claiming that you can work from home by just taking surveys alone are usually scams. Do not expect to get paid thousands of dollars for taking surveys a month.
3. Check their FAQ, Privacy Statement and Terms of Condition
Legit survey sites have these few documents listed on their website so that they can protect themselves and the users (Such as not exposing user details to 3rd parties besides the clients). You would want to stay away from sites that do not have these documents listed on their websites.
4. Search online!
Google is your best friend here to tell you if a site is legit or not. See what other users say about the
survey site itself. You can refer to my website as I would update time to time on the different survey sites you can join, and sites you should avoid.
Here is my list of recommended survey sites that work internationally. However, you can check out http://www.surveypolice.com/ for more survey sites that are localized just for your country!
I have personally used all these survey sites and I would give my stamp of approval as they are 100% legit, and easy to use. Some links here may include a referral link as well. (Thanks if you sign up through me!)

Surveys are a way that could help you to get extra pocket money, but do not promise a full time income. They are fun to do sometimes, and can help you pass time while being productive as well. These sites are really great for stay at home moms/dads that wish to get extra income as well!
