How To Do Paid Surveys

Paid Surveys
14 Tips to learn about paid surveys

1. Want to get off to a fast start doing paid surveys? 1. Be sure to get a second e-mail address if you have not done so already. If you do not have a second e-mail address, you can get a free account at Yahoo Mail. This will be very important to separate the online research projects from you every day email traffic. Consider this new email account to be your business e-mail. If you need a second e-mail account you can go toYahoo Mail.

2. If you are joining a lot of paid market research companies, then is an essential tool. Roboform will fill out online forms at the click of a button, saving you masses of time and effort. In addition, it can also be used to safely store passwords and enter those at a click of a button as well, so you'll never forget a password ever again. Roboform is 100% free for the basic version.

3. Enter your information carefully when signing up for these programs. You cannot get paid if they can not e-mail you with projects or mail you a check!

4. Some of the most important info we can provide you is: DO NOT admit to the fact you have done other projects, focus groups or belong to other survey panels. This will disqualify you from MANY paid surveys.

5. When you fill out your profiles don't hold back information by clicking "Not sure", "Don't know", or "Will not disclose." These will only harm you.

6. Try to be quick on the paid survey invites. Should you get one and think, "Oh, I'll do that one later today," later today might not come because the project may be filled with all the people they need, and you will miss out. Many research projects lead to other better paying surveys, as well as focus groups.

7. If you honestly don't know the answer to the question, guess! Go Look things up if you don't know what they are asking bydoing your own research on the Internet. Use Yahoo or Google to perform searches. or

8. Read what the research project is about before entering it. TRY to reach the market they are looking for. You will be chosen for projects based on your demographics you provide.

9. Keep an open mind. Doing so will allow you to be in focus groups as they don't want people who are dead set on never trying anything new.

10. When a research project is presented to you, confirm how much and which methods you will be paid. Ninety percent of the companies we list pay by CASH; a few will pay with vouchers to Target, Starbucks, grocery stores etc. It will be up to you if you want to do data collection for these vouchers. Unlike paid survey programs, which only pay by entering you into sweepstakes or drawings, MY COMPANIES PAY. Some of these companies will enter you into a drawing as a bonus, but the primary method will be cash.

11. Get a Pay Pal or e-gold account so you can get paid.

12. Check your e-mail often! Research project invitations only last a few days!

13. Don't use the "forward" and "back" buttons on your web browser - this may interfere with the research project!

14. When selecting the companies I list, jump around we do not want everyone to start from top to bottom becacause the top companies will get filled up much quicker.We do not list these companies in any preferred sequence. The Date Entered is when we first entered them into our program. If any of these companies change their policies for the worst, we will remove them. If you come to a company that has changed their policy, such as to only paying with prizes NOT cash, inform us right away and we will remove them from our data base.
