How much can I make?
Your earning potential depends on the number, type and duration of the surveys you get. The type of and frequency of surveys you get are based on the company needs. Specifically what campaigns they are running, so you may get more one month and less the next. Typical surveys take 10 to 30 minutes to complete, and the cash paying survey generally reward you $1 to $10 or possible more for every survey you complete. Others may give you gift certificates or enter you into sweepstakes for cash or prizes.
How will I be paid after I participate?
Normally you will be paid by check a few weeks later. Sometimes other payment receipt options such as PayPal are available. Othertimes if a gift certificate or product is the survey incentive, after completion of the survey, details will be provided as to when and how your reward will be delivered.
Survey takers can earn a solid second income.
Like any other online opportunity, it takes time and effort to build an income with surveys. One of the keys to running a successful stay at home job, is to establish multiple streams of income. Each of these streams might only provide a few dollars each month, but with enough different sources, you will find that you are able to earn a substantial second income. Paid surveys can provide a terrific income stream, that will continue to grow as you become more knowledgable and experienced with them.
The more surveys you fill out or take part in, the more money you can make.
This is not a "free ride" where you get "something for nothing" - it is a way you can work and make money with freedom to work when and where you want. The number of surveys you'll take depends on the number of companies you register with, the amount of information you provide them, and your personal "profile." Some surveys are very specific, and not everyone will "qualify" for every survey. For example, a particular survey might only be open to women between the ages of 25-45 who live in Canada. Another survey might only be open to single men who use cologne, etc. Of course, a lot of surveys are very general and just about anyone can take them. In the end, there are plenty of survey opportunities for just about everyone. It doesn't really matter if you are male or female, live in the U.S. or not, are a college student or have a full-time job, etc. There is no one "profile" that regularly qualifies for more surveys than the rest.
The amount of surveys taken, and income earned will depend on how much time and effort you put into the surveys.
Average monthly income will depend on each individual, and their effort put forth. A person who checks their email often and responds to surveys invitations quickly, or logs into the members area to see what new surveys are available often will obviously make more than someone who only logs in once a week. Income is solely dependent on an individual's effort and attention to survey offers. Most people become panelists to share their opinions as well as get paid to take surveys online. Taking free paid online surveys in your spare time is a great way to make some extra money and it's a lot more fun than other ways of making money online because you spend absolutely nothing but you still get paid to take paid surveys online, that's 100% Free money.
If you give it a minimum amount of time and work to get on track, you will develop a handsome stream of income.
Be realistic in your goals and don't expect to get rich quick. Online surveys isn't a get rich quick scheme, but you can do well to earn extra spending cash (prizes and gift cards too), if you sign up with several of the quality research firms. Surveys are still well worth your time.
Everyone's experience is a little different.
There is just no way that we or anyone else can tell you exactly how many surveys you'll take or how much money you'll make. What we suggest is that if this is something you're interested in, just give it a try and see how it goes. You have nothing to lose...
