Can You Really Make Money with Online Surveys?

By James Jones
Posted Thursday, December 23, 2004

I am sure you have seen the "Paid Survey" sites that claim to pay you for your opinion. Question is: Will they really pay you for just taking simple surveys online?

Well, I did a little experiment. Actually, it was a pretty big experiment. I researched several hundred of these

What did I find? You guessed it:

Most were scams.

They want your email address so they can spam you. Or they require you to accumulate 10 million zillion points before they pay you. Or they say they pay but don't.

But, as I was weeding out all the scams I would occasionally come across a legitimate company. It didn't happen very often, but out of the hundreds of companies I researched, I found 68 good ones.

Now, let me tell you -- you are not going to get rich doing surveys online. And, if anybody tells you that you can earn "thousands" a month -- they are lying to you. (My best month so far I earned $104.00)

But, on the other hand it's not very hard work either. Most surveys are short. I did one this morning that took less than 5 minutes. It only paid $4.00 but for 5 minutes work I am not going to complain. Yesterday I did one that paid $10.00. Two weeks ago I did a $25.00 one. And a couple of months ago I had one that paid $50. It varies. And sometimes there are very short screener surveys that don't pay anything -- you have to take the screeners to see if you qualify for the paid surveys.

All in all, it's not a bad way to earn a few extra bucks a month.
