Earn Extra Money By Stating Your Opinion... Take A Survey

May 3, 2008
Have you ever wondered if there was a job or business out there where you didn't have to leave home? What about one that wouldn't require silence or a quiet area to work in? If you have ever wondered how to run a business or make money with your children by your side, then maybe taking surveys online is perfect for you.

When you are looking at the different sites that are available, you need to be careful. You may run into a site that wants to charge you an outrageous fee to take their surveys. You don't want to be a part of those sites.

A site that charges a one time fee is probably ok. However, you really want to find a site that doesn't charge the fee at all. You really don't want to have to give away some of your profits.

Some of the survey sites give you cash when you complete them while others give you points that can be used toward purchases, and others will enter your name into sweepstakes. Make sure you check out the Frequently Asked Questions section of each site before you join.

Surveys are from all different types of businesses and groups. Some have hundreds of research groups that need opinions from all walks of life. You can even participate in focus groups and make even more money. Surveys won't take long to complete and the focus groups will only take 30-60 minutes to complete.

Some of the survey sites offer an affiliate program that you can use to refer friends and family. You can also place text ads and banners to make additional income. An affiliate program is a great way to earn money on top of what you will make with the surveys.

Payments may be paid via Paypal or with a check. It depends on how the company pays the survey company. You will want to set up a Paypal account so you will have the ability to receive payments quicker if that is an option.

When you find a survey site that you want to work with, you will want to set up a different e-mail so you don't get any of your survey emails confused with other emails and delete them by mistake. You will need to provide your phone number but that is only for area specific surveys. They won't contact you for phone surveys unless you specify your interest in that type of survey.

The great thing about surveys is you work when you want to work. You set the hours and the days you want to work. You are able to make your opinion count on subjects that are important to you. Your answers to the surveys are sent back to the company so they know how you feel about the survey topic. Your personal information will not follow the survey so the company's requesting the surveys will not know how to contact you about your opinions. Your privacy is important to these survey company's.

So if you are in need of a little extra money, consider taking surveys. It's a great way to make extra cash and make your opinions known to others.
