You can make a comfortable living online just by spending time filling up paid surveys. What are paid surveys and how exactly do they work? Here is a step by step guide you can refer to if you want to start earning money quickly.
Step 1: Make a list of survey networks.
There are many survey networks on the Internet. Usually, they cater to different countries. Register with all the different networks. They will have different types of paid surveys in their inventories. The more networks you join, the higher your chances of being invited to join a survey. The more surveys you complete, the more money you earn.
Step 2: Filter out the non-active networks.
A number of networks on your list will be inactive. That means you are not getting any invitations from them. Sometimes, there are surveys available, but you do not qualify for some reason. Don’t spend any of your precious time with these networks. Focus on those that pay you well.
Step 3: Respond to invitations.
After you join the network, you will start receiving invitations to fill in surveys. Make sure you respond quickly because most surveys are on a first come first serve basis! Some surveys may have a pre-qualification process. You may be asked to fill up a short form before they invite you to fill up a survey. If you don’t meet their requirements, you will not be invited. Just respond honestly during the pre-qualification stage. If you don’t qualify, there will always be other surveys that come along.
Step 4: Join and complete surveys.
The last step is to accept the invitations and start completing the surveys. Surveys may be time consuming to complete. But always be honest with your responses. Don’t just give false information just because you want to get it over with. A survey can take between 30 mins to 2 hours to complete. You will be notified of the expected time for filling up the survey before you start. It’s then up to you to decide whether it’s going to be worth putting your time into.
Step 5: Stick with the top paying networks.
As you probably realize by now, different networks offer different payouts. This is due to the client base that they serve. Some clients have the resources to pay out more surveys. You can earn as much as $30 or more per survey.
Time is the most important concern here. While you are filling up 1 survey, you can’t possibly be filling up another one at the same time. Maximize your time so that you can maximize earnings.
A quick word of caution here – be sure to read survey reviews to make sure that you join legitimate networks. If you join the wrong network, you may end up not getting paid for your hard work!
