There are a lot of people that make money doing surveys online. Although it will not make a fortune, it can be a fun way to make some extra money. Obviously you will need to be the sort of person who enjoys answering questions and also be prepared to reveal information about yourself or give your opinion on things. It is important to be honest as well, because the surveys are used as research studies by companies who use it to base their decisions on.
There are many websites that you can sign up to where you can do online surveys. You will have to register and then fill in some profile information so that you can be sent surveys that are relevant to you. The amount that you get sent will depend on how well you match the criteria that those paying for the surveys to be done need. Usually you will receive an email when there is a survey waiting to be completed. Most surveys will have a few screening questions to find out whether you qualify for the main survey and if you get through these you will have the opportunity to complete the survey and get paid. Most websites will not pay if you do not pass the screening questions, although a few will. Some will only send you surveys that they know you will qualify for.
On most survey sites, you will be paid a while after completing the survey. This will be credited to your account on the site and once you reach a minimum amount, you will be able to apply for a payment. Payments most often go to Paypal accounts but some pay directly into your bank and others through other online payment systems. It is important to check the terms and conditions before you sign up and start doing surveys as you will need to see how you can get paid. You may also not want to bother with ones that have a large amount needed before they pay out. There can be a big difference with some paying out at just $4 and others £50 but you may find you get sent more surveys by some than others and so it may be easier to cash out on the higher ones as you can earn money more often.
It is therefore worth finding out about the different sites available and reading some reviews of them. You will be able to find out whether you think that they are worth signing up to for you. The reviews will allow you to find out whether other people have been paid by them. You will also be able to find out more about how often you get surveys and what they are like so that you can judge whether you think that it is a good site for you to try. You may find that you start by signing up to quite a few, but just stick with one or two that you like using and that give you regular surveys to do.
