Get Paid To Take Surveys Online Programs have gotten a bad rap of late! Website reviews would have you believe that all survey sites and opportunities are scams. But I'm here to tell you that you've been bamboozled and led astray.
Did you know there are some online paid survey companies such as SurveySavvy.com which are members of the BBB (Better Business Bureau) in good standings?
Did you know you don't have to pay a dime to join SurveySavvy.com to get paid to take surveys online?
The bad publicity around get paid to take survey programs is that there are companies charging you for a list of online paid survey opportunities. This in itself is not illegal. But you're basically paying for a list that you can get for free on sites like www.WorkAtHomeCareers.com. I'm torn about calling these type of companies scams because we all pay for information we can get for free all the time, they're called newspapers, magazines and books. The problem with some of these list of survey companies is that they're making outrageous claims about how much money you can make with these surveys and the number of surveys you'll get per day and how soon you'll get started.
The fact of the matter is legitimate companies like SurveySavvy.com will definitely pay you to take surveys. So no it's not a scam! But chances are you're not going to qualify to receive a large number of surveys and there all not going to pay you $50 for an hour of your time as some of these ads claim. Any survey company whether it's SurveySavvy.com or MySurvey.com will send out surveys based on their needs for a given study. Keep in mind these survey companies are marketing companies being hired by other companies to get your feedback. So if they're not getting business from new companies, then guess what you're probably not going to get a survey! And let's say if they do have tons of companies looking to survey you, you still have to fit a certain profile. If my company sells baby products and I want the opinion of mothers, If you're a dude who's closest experience to parenthood is your dog spike, you're not getting a survey for this study. So keep that in mind with any survey company. Don't believe the hype that you've been reading that all survey companies are scams and don't believe the sites selling survey lists that you'll start earning $100 per hour as soon as you get their list!
The best strategy is to join as many survey companies at once. The reason behind this is that companies looking to do research use different marketing organizations. So you want to be on all the lists of these marketing organizations to get more survey opportunities.
And yes you can get these lists for free but these list aren't always maintained by the site owners. That's when using a paid company like SurveyScout.com isn't a bad idea because they have to keep their list up to date so they can earn money by selling you these list and from the referrals they earn by referring you to these companies. But again you don't have to use these companies.
In any event, I definitely recommend SurveySavvy.com because it's a member of the BBB and I've personally been paid for taking surveys and referring other people. I'm hoping that now that I'm going to be a parent, I will qualify for more surveys. But I do get a few good ones once per month. SurveySavvy.com won't make you tons of money. But the checks can add up and they pay you for the surveys your friends and referrals do. And I'm pretty sure you know a hand full of people that are always giving you their two cents when you didn't ask for it. Why not get paid for it now? lol
So give SurveySavvy.com a try. It's free to join and definitely legitimate. They actually pay a lot better then some of the other programs I've tried.
