What are online surveys?

Many companies conduct surveys to know the opinion about a product or service. This helps them improve their products, eliminate mistakes and come up with a better product. In traditional way, 10 or 20 years back companies used hired many candidates who went door to door and collect opinion of people by filling out forms. This took long time and lot of investment and tedious work. But, there was no choice for marketing companies rather than conducting such surveys to develop a product of the company.

Recent development in internet and the usage of emails have gone beyond limits. Millions of people use emails and internet. Therefore big companies decided to conduct online paid surveys through emails. It is the quick way, easy way and less expensive as compared to hiring hundreds and thousands of staff to go door to door and take surveys. Companies send surveys to people through emails and once they completed answering simple “yes or no” type questions they are paid well for sharing the opinion. These are called online surveys. Many people around the world make a nice second income working from home taking paid surveys.

Who is eligible for online surveys?

Normally there is no age restriction for paid surveys. Minimum age for taking paid surveys is 18 to 99. However some companies (very few) offer surveys even for teen agers from 13 to 17.

Anyone with a computer or laptop or a smart phone is eligible for taking surveys online. All you need is an email to receive surveys and a bank account or PayPal account to get paid.

Do I need to pay for joining paid surveys?

No. You never need to pay a dime for joining any survey company or panel to take surveys. 90% of them are free to join and only 10% companies charge a little fee since they are sending you high paying surveys so that you can make more money. You may join them or avoid them and join only free companies.

How much money can we make taking surveys?

It is an important question. Can you make a living taking surveys? Off course not, you can use this opportunity to make second income. This can supplement your primary income and not a regular income like a day job.

Making 100 dollars a week is possible for most people through online cash surveys since there are hundreds and thousands of survey companies online that can offer you good amount of surveys. However, you might have seen many advertisements that say that you can make a thousand dollars a month or so. But this is not possible for most country people. It is possible only for the US residents. Most high paying survey companies prefer only US, UK, Canada and Australia and European countries. People from these countries can make huge money from taking surveys. But, remember, other country people can make only $100 per week or 250 to 500 a month. Not more than that.

What we get after joining?

After joining any survey company, you may receive surveys that pay cash, coupons, discount vouchers. Some companies send products to test also. Some online survey panels pay only cash. Some companies pay only discount coupons, gift vouchers and so on. You need to choose the right one for you.
