One fantastic way of making some extra money online is by taking online surveys. This will certainly not give you enough to quit your day job, but will help put a little extra in those back pockets. More and more people are signing up to online survey sites, so now might be a good time to join them. But how do you go about making extra money by taking online surveys?
Signing up to Websites
The first thing that you have to do is sign up to as many of these online survey sites as possible. A quick search on the internet will provide you with a massive list of companies. To make any real money, you will have to sign up with as many companies as you can. Beware! Some of these sites are scams and any site that promises to make your fortune or asks for an unreasonable amount of money to sign you up should be avoided. The genuine companies will have a business address and contact telephone number on their website.
Once you sign up to these companies they will, no doubt, ask you a load of questions about your lifestyle. This is so that they can match you to surveys that will have some relevance to you and ones that you may even find very interesting. To start with, accept as many of these survey invitations as possible as this will build up your pennies quickly and at the same time will provide you with a good reputation with the company. Make sure that you answer truthfully all the questions as not doing so may mean that you are struck off from the site.
How Much Can You Earn?
Taking online surveys may at first seem like a waste of time as the rate at which you are paid does appear to be quite low. However, if you take a number of surveys that pay only 50p, this is soon going to add up and provide you with much wanted cash. Online surveys vary in payment. Usually they start at 50p for a very short survey and will increase in payment depending on how long the survey is. Some survey sites may even ask you to test websites and products for them and these types of surveys typically pay out a lot more. You are unlikely to get lucky enough to get the larger paying surveys in the first few months, but as your reputation (and hopefully bank balance) grows, you will be offered more surveys that are higher paying and more interesting. Why not give it a go now and see how much you can earn over time?
