Paid Surveys - Paid Surveys And Focus Groups

Aug 17, 2007
Have you been considering trying out paid surveys and focus groups for a source of quick and easy money? Let me guess, you're someone that doesn't have a lot of time but you could definitely do with a little extra cash in your back pocket for when it comes time to pay the bills at the end of the month? If this is you then getting involved in online paid surveys and focus groups is a great way to use the little time you have to make a bit of extra cash each month.

So What Are They Basically?

There are a lot of companies out there who are desperate to find out how their market thinks and what they want. That's why they hire market research companies to create surveys in accordance to their products and services and hire members of the public to take part in them(that's you and me!)

A lot of companies pay rewards in the form of non cash prizes, which are the one's you want to have nothing to do with. You're whole aim should be to apply to paid surveys that pay cash rewards, usually around $10-$20 per 15-30 minute survey you complete. Because in the end that's all that matters. You're in it for the money, not a whole bunch of prizes that you'll be unlikely to ever use!

Now we've talked about paid surveys, but there are also things we call focus groups which is basically a group chatroom where you will get asked a series of questions and all they are looking for is your opinion on certain topics. They usually go for around 30 minutes and the rewards are generally a little higher and sometimes a lot, depending on the focus group you are taking part in.

There are some focus groups that have huge payouts, sometimes over $100 if you are lucky. It is a little harder to get picked for these focus groups, however if you make sure you spend enough time applying and checking to see when new ones are opening, you'll have a good chance to be apart of them.

In the end, the more time and effort you are willing to put in will determine whether or not you make money from paid surveys and focus groups. And when I say time, that usually only means an hour or two a day searching and applying. I'm sick of hearing people saying they can't make any money from paid surveys. These people are usually the one's that could not be bothered to put the time in everyday. If you are a naturally hard working person, then you'll have a good chance at making some good money each month from taking part in paid surveys and focus groups.
