I have already written about programs that pay for completing surveys. Mainly I wrote about the attributes of given pages, payment thresholds and other such issues. Today I decided to delve a little deeper and describe this topic in more depth.
A few words about completing surveysDo not be tempted to earn millions of dollars on this job, unless you focus only on this. However, completing surveys in the long run is tedious and, let's face it, a bit dull. Therefore, filling out surveys is an ideal way to earn a monthly salary. A large advantage of this type of work is the lack of having to leave the house, as well as the fact that they do not require you to do much intellectual effort. Therefore, you can always do it, eg when you wake up in the morning and you do not quite catch up with the world when you want to take a break in the right job or in the evening when you're too tired to get on another project or article. Of course, not only freelancers but also full-time employees can fill in the questionnaires when they return home after eight hours.
At the beginning, the question may arise: "Why am I doing this right?" Well, individual companies that create surveys need an opinion, for example about their products or services. Such knowledge is invaluable and affects market analysis. He checks what is currently missing from him, what is the demand for. It also gives an accurate and objective view of the company's products. Thanks to this, it can rationally assess what requires thorough changes, what minor corrections to introduce, what to produce more and what to withdraw from the sale at all.
Public opinion is extremely important especially for companies that build brand awareness. Therefore, both sides use the surveys - you get a salary that is appropriate for the number of completed surveys, and the commissioning company gains an opinion about the product. REMEMBER: invitations to paid surveys are sent via email, so check your e-mail frequently. In addition, disable the spam filter, because it happens that the surveys land in this tab.
Registration to survey sitesTo receive a survey from a given company, you must sign up for the panel. Registration is simple and free, usually you just have to fill out a form asking for your most important data, e.g. your interests, age, etc. Based on it, surveys generated by your profile are generated later. It is worth to update it from time to time. If you are a specialist in some field, check it, companies willingly use the opinions of professionals. REMEMBER: always provide real data, because they serve not only to create your survey profile, but above all to send remuneration.
It is best to register in several companies, because companies send out surveys only once in a while, depending on the demand for an objective opinion at the moment. The more panels, the more surveys - the more surveys, the more money. It is also worth being interested in foreign panels, because these offer better remuneration.
However, if you do not receive any questionnaires at once, do not be discouraged and keep in mind that some companies only send them once a month. Many companies among the newly registered participants of the program draw lots of valuable prizes. Such registration then becomes doubly profitable. REMEMBER: the majority of registrations in a given panel require its confirmation. If you do not do this, you will not be able to participate in paid surveys. In addition, fill as many surveys as possible, because inactive respondents are removed from the panel database.
Reward for completing surveysThe prizes most often take the form of points that can later be exchanged for money, vouchers or material prizes, as well as for topping up mobile phones. Cash payments range from USD 0.6 to USD 8 for completing one questionnaire (it depends mainly on its length and type), which takes on average from 10 to 30 minutes. Most money is transferred to your bank account, sometimes to your PayPal account, so it would be good if you started it. In the case of foreign panels, it is possible to make withdrawals in the form of checks that can be made in Polish banks (but not in all!). REMEMBER: most of the panels have their own affiliate programs, invite your friends to them and thus you will get a chance to grow bigger
Easiest job everFilling out surveys is one of the easiest ways to make money. And most of them are quite pleasant, for example, they can ask you to review a movie or ask if you like chocolate bars, and even what cosmetics you use and what you usually put on the grill. What's more, you have the chance to evaluate a product that is not yet on the market. Let's face it - who does not like to express his own opinion, which will be paid additionally?
However, it should be added that surveys should be honest and reliable, to gain the trust of companies and receive more surveys in the future. Most of the panels have filters that can capture false nuances. In addition, some surveys contain so-called test windows, if you fill them, you will gain in the eyes of companies that generate survey data, you will become a valuable respondent and you will receive more surveys to fill.
There is plenty if panels on the Internet, so you will definitely find something suitable for yourself. The more panels you are a participant, the more you will gain. And do not worry about the fact that you have a lot of competition, because it is still small in relation to the survey market, eg in the United States. Market research in some countries is not as popular as it is in other countries, but it must be admitted that it is growing rapidly.
