Can you really make money with online surveys? Of course you can! But the question you should really be asking is, is it worth it?

Making money with online surveys is probably one of the easiest ways to make money online.

But if you’re thinking about quitting your day job, and go into taking online surveys full time, then you may find yourself very disappointed.

But if you’re still hell bent on trying to make it work for you, then it probably helps to know what you will be getting yourself into.

So in this article, I plan on giving you a bit of insight as to what you should expect when getting ready to take online surveys.

The Purpose Of Surveys

If you’re like every other person looking to make money doing online surveys, you probably never asked yourself why companies pay you for doing them.

Remember, companies are trying to make money by selling you products and services. In order to do that, they need to know what the consumer wants.

Consumer feedback is crucial to the business of companies.

Knowing what kind of advertisements to put out there, and how to improve current products and services that are being sold.

Your feedback helps them improve their overall business.


So How Does It Work?

Once you get past the whole setup process which can take up a bit of time, taking online surveys is pretty easy. Here are the steps involved:

  • Sign up with a survey site. There are literally hundreds of sites that will allow you to get paid for completing surveys. Below I will provide you with a few legitimate ones out there.
  • Create and fill out your profile. This part is very important if you want to get paid for the surveys you do complete. Companies want to make sure you fit the demographic they’re looking for to sell their products. So you want to make sure you fill out your profile as complete as possible or you risk the chance of being accepted to fill out surveys.
  • Search for surveys. Each survey site has their process in which they allow you to complete surveys. Some will email you when there is a survey available to complete. Others will have surveys that are available right away for you to complete. When searching for surveys, they usually let you know how long the surveys are, and how much you can earn if you complete them. So you do get a selection to choose from before you decide.
  • Get approved and take surveys. This part is probably the most annoying part of taking surveys. That’s because, before you take the survey, you first have to get accepted. So they make you take a pre survey to make sure you fit their demographic. These pre surveys can take anywhere from 5-10 minutes, and sometimes longer. The annoying thing about this is, you can take this 10 minute survey, and not get approved. So either you get approved and have to spend more time completing the survey, or not get approved only to have your time wasted.
  • Earn rewards. So once you’ve completed the survey, you will either be rewarded in money or points, that can then be redeemed for cash or other rewards. Each reward varies depending the the site and survey you end up taking.

How Much Can You Make - My Personal Experience

If you’re looking to get rich with online surveys, then you’re looking in the wrong place.

The reason I got into it was because I was trying to create some part time income while I worked on my online business.

I already had a part time job as a kickboxing instructor, but I was trying to find a way to leave.

So I searched online surveys, and boy did I feel certain I could create part time income with it. But I quickly learned that it was a complete waste of my time.

I did make money with it, in which I collected zero dollars from it. Not because they scammed me, but because I didn’t care to collect it.

I’ve probably completed 100 surveys making a total of about 30-40 bucks. To be honest I barely remember, that’s how much I didn’t care.

All I knew is that I put in a lot of hours completing those surveys, only to make little money. Also, some survey sites are better than others.

Some will pay you in points in which you can redeem for cash, or they will just pay you cash. So finding the right site is key.

Below are some sites you may want to check out.

Companies To Check Out

There are so many survey sites you could sign up for.

So making sure you do your research to find the right one will decided what kind of money you make.

Also, many would recommend that you sign up for about 5-10 sites so you can maximize the amount of surveys you can complete.

Of course this helps if all you plan on doing is completing surveys all day. On that note, below are survey sites you can join to start making some coin.

  • Swagbucks - This is a great company because you can earn cash back rewards or gift cards for your online activity. Swagbucks rewards you for watching videos, completing surveys, voting in polls, online shopping and even for playing online games. It’s free to signup and if you spend hours surfing the web anyway, you might as well get paid for it.
  • Inbox Dollars -
  • Product Report Card - 

Is it Worth it? - How Badly Do You Need Money?

Look, if you’re looking to make some extra beer money, surveys can be a great way to get it.

But if you’re looking to pay some bills, it totally isn’t worth it. I quickly knew that it wasn’t worth my time, and that I had to find another way.

You’re decision to do it will depend on how badly you need the money.

If you’re someone that is home all day with no other options, then taking online surveys could be a way to go.

Just know that you will have to put in a lot of hours and have a lot of patience to get through it.

How I Earn My Money Online

In 2018, I finally became a Six Figure Business, and it only took 27 months to get there. This allowed me to leave my part time job, and become a full time affiliate marketer.
