Many people today are shedding the corporate world and working from home. With the cost of
childcare, the rising gas prices, and the need for parents to connect with their children more
often, working at home has become more popular in the last decade.
Working at home is not for everyone, it takes an organized person who can stay on schedule
without supervision. Once you begin working at home, JOB will become a nasty work. You set
the hours you work every day, and you will have the flexibility to break up your day when
children or errands need attention.
Many people are participating in online surveys to make money at home. There are hundreds of
online survey sites who need your opinion on a variety of topics, and they will pay you to fill out
surveys. Many marketing companies are using this method of research to give them a wider
scope of coverage.
This book is filled with information on how you can get your share of cash from filling out paid
surveys on the internet. You will learn how to find the best paid survey sites, how to get started,
how much money you will make, and so much more.
HOW PAID SURVEYS WORK
Once you register with a paid survey site, you will receive surveys in your email. It is up to you
which surveys you choose to participate in. You will be paid for each survey you complete,
following the price per survey the site offers. Most of the time, these surveys will take you about
5 to 15 minutes of your time to fill out, and usually offer a payment of $10 to $75 for each.
Focus groups pay quite a bit more per survey, usually up to $250.
The amount of money you make will depend on how many sites you join and how many emails
you receive in a day, you could make several hundred dollars daily. Look at it this way, if you
receive and complete at least 25 paid surveys a day at $10 to $15 each, you would be making
anywhere from $250–$375 per day. At 5 to 15 minutes per survey you would be working
anywhere from 2 1/2 hours, to a bit over 6 hours every day. If all of these surveys were from
focus groups paying $75 each, you would have the potential to realize a whopping $1875 per
day. You can see the potential to make a good deal of money participating in paid surveys.
Why Would Anyone Pay For Your Opinion ?
As a consumer, your opinion is important to companies before they introduce a new product or
service to the market. Paying to have a consumer fill out surveys is a much more cost effective
way to perform research, as the company cannot afford to introduce a new product or service that
nobody will buy.
It is well worth it for a company to pay a consumer to fill out a survey, participate in an online
focus group, or pay to watch a new movie trailer and give their opinion. This way they will get
consumer opinions, good or bad, before they put any money into production.
Types of Paid Surveys
These surveys are used to collect information about the population. These surveys are used to
measure political polls, for governmental use, health, social activities, and marketing research.
The surveys will focus on facts or opinions, depending on the type of the information the
company or institution is looking for.
The questions on this type of survey are standard and structured. Questions are offered in an
order that will not influence a response to questions that came after. They are standardized so
that the questions remain general and reliable. Every person receiving the survey will receive the
exact same questions.
These surveys repeat the same questions at different times to track changes in opinion. There are
two types of serial surveys. Cross– Sectional Surveys are given to a variety of different people at
the same time, and Longitudinal Surveys are given to the same person at different intervals of
Delivering Surveys to the Public:
Telephone Surveys– Are a popular way to get public opinion and are low in cost. This type of
survey is limited in capacity because the responder is not able to view, smell, or touch the
product. An oral representation of the survey is represented.
Mail Surveys– The survey is mailed to the respondent and are returned in the same manner.
When bought in bulk, postage is usually quite reasonable, making this type of delivery cost
effective. The biggest drawback to this type of survey delivery is the long wait to receive all of
the responses, sometimes several months.
Online Surveys– Web surveys are sometimes preferred over email because the response rate is
instantly available. Online surveys can be lower in cost to the company, and more convenient for
the person filling them out because they are automated.
