How To Really Make A Living As An Online Survey Taker

Mar 28, 2008
By now, we've all seen web sites that claim we could earn $150 per day simply by filling out surveys. You've probably assumed that such claims are too good to be true, and they generally are. It may come as a surprise to you to find out that there really are companies out there who are willing to pay you to take surveys, but the legitimate ones don't make outrageous claims in their advertisements. Realistically, to make such an income would require you to sign up with between 20 to 30 web sites and completing surveys for all of them every day.

There are many home business reviews out there of survey companies, however in this article I will work on answering the question that many people have, which is, \"Can I really make $150 a day taking surveys on the Internet?\"

Yes, you actually can. Online survey taking is a legitimate source of this kind of income, if you're willing to sign up with enough legitimate web sites (20-30) and you're willing to put in the effort that is required.

First and foremost, you'll need to create an email address that is only used for the emails you will receive from survey companies. If you are tempted to skip this important step, consider that your personal inbox will quickly be flooded with survey requests. Trust me when I say that it's best to keep your survey emails separate.

Now it's time to do some research. Check online for specialized sites that are dedicated to home-based business opportunities. Also post questions like, \"Can I actually earn $150 a day just by taking online surveys?\" on forums that specialize in work-from-home topics. Also, don't be afraid to ask for recommendations when you post to these forums. Specifically, ask for the names of proven online survey companies, and make sure to find out how long the companies take to get checks to the survey takers. You probably don't want to work for any site that takes longer than 6 weeks to pay you.

Once you've found survey sites that have worked for people you will need to create your own account. The only way that you will be making $150 by taking surveys online is by getting many survey invites and then successfully qualifying to get paid for taking it. To do this, make sure to put that you have all sorts of interests and that people in all the age ranges live in your household. If you are very conservative you will not get many survey invites and if you do, you will not qualify for them.

A helpful piece of advice is that you should make sure to sign up to receive email invitations to surveys. If you do this you will avoid having to visit the 20-30 sites that you have signed up with every day in order to see what surveys are available to take.

Does this answer the question \"Can I really make $150 a day taking surveys on the Internet?\" If it doesn't then you are just going to have to try it yourself to prove to yourself that it is a way to make a living. Once you start, stick with it and fill out lots of surveys. Survey companies send out most of their invitations to people whom have been with them for a long time and have filled out almost every survey they've sent them.
