Although you probably can't earn a full-time income taking surveys, you can earn some extra spending money and cool merchandise.
All that is required is an email address and your spare time.
Do you have these? Well then you're ready to begin signing up for paid surveys.
How does making money with paid surveys work? There are a large number of survey companies online.
These survey companies represent all types of businesses that want the opinions of regular people.
Your opinion is valuable - no matter your age, sex, religion, race, education, career, etc.
Businesses want a variety of opinions so that they will know better how to market their products.
This includes advertising campaigns and choosing new products.
All you have to do is sign up with as many of these survey companies as you can.
You provide them with information about yourself - age, sex, background, etc.
Each company is different as far as the information they want.
After you're signed up, they will begin matching your profile with businesses that are looking for opinions of people like you.
You will start getting survey opportunities in your email right away.
And you'll eventually begin getting multiple offers every day.
You don't have to complete every survey these companies send you.
Just do the ones that you feel like or have the time to do each day.
You will complete the majority of your surveys online at the company's website.
But there are other types that you will occasionally be asked to participate in: telephone surveys; traveling to a nearby city to be interviewed in person (these pay a good bit); and receiving product samples in the mail that you are asked to rate and review.
Payment for surveys takes many forms - cash, product samples, prize drawings.
The cash rewards can vary from $1 for 5 minutes of your time; up to $90 for 90 minutes of your time.
Product samples might be shampoo, snack foods, dental products, etc.
Prize drawings might be for cash, gift certificates, etc.
I signed up with a company that gave me a list of hundreds of survey companies to sign up for.
I now receive 5 or more opportunities in my email every day.
I pick and choose only the offers that pay out the most money; have the best prizes; or that I have time for.
I've received surveys on all types of products - fast food, beer, computers, printers, clothes, snacks, shampoo, soap, television shows, celebrities, music, banking, electronics, dog food, cat food, etc.
You name a product, I've probably filled out a survey on it.
I have earned cash amounts of $1 all the way up to $50.
I have received Amazon gift certificates for $5 up to $25.
And I have received free product samples of snacks, pens, shampoo, conditioner, feminine hygiene supplies, razors, etc.
You have nothing to lose by taking advantage of paid surveys.
You probably won't become rich following this method - but it sure is a fun way to earn extra money and prizes.
