"Wait a second", I hear you saying. "Aren't all those online paid survey sites a scam"? The truth is that the majority of sites that pay you for your opinion are legitimate market research companies. Some of them have been conducting paid surveys online for over 10 years and if you want to get paid to fill out survey then these are the companies you should find. There are plenty of legit paid surveys available to you.

So, how do you find them? Easy, you can do a search on Google for paid surveys, but most of what you'll get is sites that want you to pay them for access to a list of paying survey companies. Make sure to avoid these! There is no reason to ever pay for a list of survey companies, trust me the information is freely available on the internet. What you need is a site that offers a list of paid survey companies absolutely free. Those sites do exist and they have all the same links to paid market research companies as the directories that want you to pay them. You shouldn't ever have to pay someone to get paid to fill out surveys. I'll let you know about a free resource for paid surveys at the end of this article to save you the time searching.

The reason you can get paid to fill out surveys is that companies know they need your opinion to improve their products and services. They want your opinion so badly that they are willing to pay for it. So, they hire the market research companies to gather this information for them. They pay the market research companies to create online surveys about their products.

These market research companies turn around and use part of the money they are making to gather data to pay you to answer their online surveys. They may get paid thousands of dollars for one small campaign so it is no problem for them to pay out $5 or $10 to a few hundred people to fill out a survey. This is still much cheaper for them than having to do the surveys in person which is how it was done in the past. If you're old enough you may remember the people who would try to survey you at the grocery store or at the mall.

These online surveys are conducted by some of the same companies that did in person surveys previously. Of course since online surveys are much easier to conduct there are now many more companies involved. The competition is good for you and me because it means it's now easier than ever to get paid to fill out a survey.

Since the advent of the internet however it has become much more cost effective for companies to sponsor surveys. This has led to the creation of online companies whose sole purpose is to create the surveys for other companies and distribute them. The online survey company gets paid for collecting information and they share part of this payment with you for providing the information. A true win-win situation, the survey company gets paid for their services and you get paid to fill out the survey. What could be easier?
