How to Make Money with Free Online Surveys


How to Make Money with Free Online Surveys

Looking for bucks in all the wrong places? Online surveys are a great way to pad your paycheck on your own time and with minimal effort. To find legitimate sites, go through the registration process, and become eligible to take surveys, follow these instructions.

1
Become Eligible to Complete Online Surveys

  1. 1
    Be prepared. Surveyors are looking for specific types of people, and while you won't qualify for every survey (if you're a 25-year-old healthy hipster and they're looking for a 60-year-old couch potato, you're just not going to make the cut).
  2. 2
    Fill out the surveys. Many survey companies offer screener surveys when you register, which usually don't pay.
    • However, it's an important first step, and worth the little extra time it takes to fill these screening surveys out because the more demographic information the market research companies have on you, the more surveys they can send you.
    • Remember, you will only be matched with surveys that you can actually contribute to, so if you leave all your screener information blank to get through it more quickly, you will receive fewer survey opportunities.
  3. 3
    Check often! Keep an eye out on both the site and your email regularly for survey opportunities. Some companies offer surveys more often than others—and you certainly don’t want to miss any of them!
    • Any individual survey site may only offer a couple of surveys to you in a given month. The more companies you sign up with, the more surveys you'll be able to complete.
    • Set up a rule for your email so that any survey emails that come in are flagged, make noise when they arrive, and appear at the top of your list. Everything you do to make them stand out will help.
  4. 4
    Choose and complete the best surveys. Once you have lots of surveys available, you can be more selective and pick the ones that seem like the best use of your time. If time isn’t an issue, on the other hand, you can do them all. You're under no obligation to complete any surveys if you don't want to.

2
Find Legitimate Survey Sites

  1. 1
    Get searching, but be wary. There are many legitimate survey companies out there, and money to be made. Which, of course, means that there will be unscrupulous people out there as well, looking to nab some dollars without working for it. Here's how to steer clear of scammers:
  2. 2
    Never pay up front. Some companies will ask you to pay a small fee up-front for access to survey lists, which is absolutely unnecessary. Check Terms and Conditions, FAQs, or any other area on a survey company’s page containing information on how the company operates. (If such information is hard or impossible to locate, consider it a red flag and cross that site off your list.)
  3. 3
    Make sure you will be paid in cash. There are tons of surveys on the internet that can be completed for cash (or points that you exchange for cash), but some only pay in gift cards or enter you into a sweepstakes.
    • Some sites offer a combination of these, which may or may not be to your benefit. Be sure you know exactly how you will be rewarded by checking a sites FAQs, Terms and Conditions, etc.
    • Some companies offer prizes or products, or let you accrue points that you can trade in for such. Many of these won’t be as useful or valuable to you as cash, but occasionally you will get lucky. Just be sure to price-hunt any items before accepting them (or investing valuable energy into trying to earn them).
    • Get fine-print savvy. Some websites will say you won an Xbox360 or a new laptop, for example, but if you look carefully, you’ll usually find an asterisk near the "you won" part. Be especially wary of weasel words, like "you may have already won," or "new laptop is based on a purchase of gummy bears worth $5,000 or more." Don't fall into these sorts of traps; they're ridiculously difficult and not worth it.
  4. 4
    Read the Privacy Policy. It is usually found at the bottom of a site’s homepage. This is important: who will your information be shared with? Always look for a statement along the lines of: “Email addresses given to our company will never be sold, given away, or shared with any third parties without your consent.” When you read those, think to yourself if there's anything in the language that would let them sell their mailing list.
  5. 5
    Check for age restrictions. Online surveys can be a great way for teens to make pocket money, but not all sites allow it. (Many allow it if parental permission is given.)
  6. 6
    Look for a minimum payment amount. Most sites won’t allow you to cash in until you have accrued a certain amount of money, which reduces the number of transactions they have to process (and, of course, gets people to invest more in the site).
    • Make sure the amount required is fair before diving in—twenty dollars is common—and, more importantly, if you don’t like a site and plan to cash out soon, make sure to time it so that you don’t have to do a lot more surveys to unlock your cash.
  7. 7
    Look for sites that have good ratings. Finding a reputable survey-site aggregator (such as GetPaidSurveys or BigSpot) that allows members to rank the companies they’ve worked with is a good way to do this. Don’t take any stock in reviews or testimonials that are self-posted by survey sites.

3
Register with Survey Sites

  1. 1
    Make a dedicated email account just for surveys. This will keep junk mail out of your normal inbox. They may say they won't sell your information, but less-reputable companies might give it away for a favor. Once your information is out, it's out.
  2. 2
    Register with legitimate companies. You will usually be required to provide basic information such as your name, email address, birth date, gender, and address. Later in the process, you will also need to provide PayPal information—usually associated with an email address—so that you can receive the money you’ve earned.
    • This is a good time to review the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy if necessary, as you will be asked to legally agree to them.
  3. 3
    Check your email to verify. After registration, companies will email the email address you’ve provided to verify. Open this email and activate your account to confirm.
  4. 4
    Add the site’s email address to your address book. If an incoming address doesn’t match one in your address book, your e-mail account might mark it as spam automatically.

Community Q&A

  • Who are the legitimate survey companies?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Legitimate companies are those that have good private policies, terms and conditions, and allow information like FAQs to be accessed easily. They also do not post testimonials and ratings written by themselves.
  • Do I need a PayPal account to do this?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Sometimes you don't, because sites also might send gift cards.
  • What surveys online are best to use?
    wikiHow Contributor
    There are some websites that provide a huge lists of legit survey sites for free, such as legitimatesurveysites.com, bbb.org, etc.
  • How do the people paying send me the money?
    wikiHow Contributor
    They send it to your PayPal or bank account via the internet.
  • Would you please recommend a faithful survey company name?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Prizerebel.com has a good survey inventory.
  • How do I create an account?
    Light saber
    First you have to enter information such as your first name, last name, etc., then you will have to put in your email and password.

Tips

  • Surveys only net a few dollars on average but take very little time. Even if you only spend a few minutes making $3 a day, in a month, you will have earned over $90!
  • Teenagers can also do surveys for cash but should always research whether or not a given company will allow them to participate.
  • If you use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, try using the WOT extension to stop yourself from going to scam sites.

Warnings

  • Ask yourself what your goal is. Surveys are a nice way of getting a little extra change in your pocket but you will not be able to quit your day job. If you are looking to make more than $100/month online, you should look into affiliate marketing.
  • Many websites with online surveys often have spyware and viruses, so be careful of them.
  • Avoid giving out your phone number, as it can open the door for telemarketers. Some can even circumvent the Do-Not-Call lists because you've signed up to receive information.
  • Most survey sites (and their affiliate companies) will start sending you tons of spam.
  • Don’t accept what sounds too good to be true.

Three Methods:Online OpportunitiesPlanning Your Long-Term Online CareerFinding Career Opportunities
There are times when we find ourselves at loose ends in our careers. Sure, we could watch movies, take long walks on the beach, or play WoW until the kids get home, but that gets really boring, really fast. But there's hope, even when jobs are tight. We can turn to creative solutions to beat the blahs and generate some income, and what better way to do that than to use the Internet? There are ways to make money online that don't require any up-front capital. What follows is a sampling of the potential opportunities and some pointers for capitalizing on them and putting cash in your pocket.

1
Online Opportunities

  1. 1
    Play to your strengths. Making money online is a lot easier when you are doing things directly related to your source of income.
    • For example, if you are a regular blogger and have a following, you can use Google AdSense to generate income. AdSense analyzes your content, and directs ads to your page that is relevant to your followers. The more followers you have, the more AdSense will work for you.
  2. 2
    Perform a service. There are many businesses out there that need as many people as possible, working online, to become successful. Usually these service-oriented companies do not pay a lot per item, but if you're fast and accurate, the the pennies add up to dollars and can be a great source of income. Look for opportunities like these:
    • Online surveys. Consumer data is an incredibly valuable commodity that companies will pay a lot of money to have, and the way a lot of this data is collected is through surveys. The more surveys you complete, the more you will earn.
    • Be a writer. The Internet is jam-packed with readers (you're one now!) The one thing that readers need the most are writers. There are sites such as Zerys that specialize in bidding out writing jobs that range from $.01 to $.10 a word. You may start in the $.01 to $.03 range, but the more you write—providing you write well—the more you will make per word.
  3. 3
    Put your skills on the market. You may have talents in audio or film editing; you might be an awesome graphic designer; maybe your forte is programming, or making mobile apps that people love. Where once people went to the temp agencies, they now sign up with sites like Upwork (formerly Elance and oDesk).
    • Sign up is free, generally easy, and often can be handled simply by signing in through Facebook or Twitter. Create an online profile, use a professional photo, and people who need your skills will see your smiling mug and awesome skillset when they're looking for somebody with your talents.
  4. 4
    Become an affiliate marketer. Like using Google's AdSense, if you have a web presence with any kind of following, becoming an affiliate marketer can generate a substantial income if you do it well.
    • Sign up with a company that has an affiliate program. You can research popular or trending topics with Google Trends, and pick an affiliate partner based on current events, or you can pick a partner based on your own preferences.
    • For example, if you are a musician, Musician's Friend offers an Affiliate Program that is very partner-friendly.
  5. 5
    Buy and sell the Internet. OK, maybe not the whole Internet, but buying and selling domain names can generate some extra spending money.
    • Think beyond the obvious. While most short names have been long-since taken, consider a couple alternatives: hyphenated names are more common now that the one-word names have been assigned; also, unique family names have selling potential. While it may not generate the kind of dollars a multinational corporation might pay for a name, family names are personal enough that people might be willing to part with a few hundred dollars to "own" their surname on the Internet.
  6. 6
    Be creative. Above all, use your imagination when investigating online money-making opportunities. Regardless of your education or experience, you have skills that people want. Grab your Google, plug in some keywords, and find your niche!

Planning Your Long-Term Online Career

  1. 1
    Look ahead. While finding ways to generate an income online can be fairly straightforward, taking that from the spare change category to a full-fledged income takes some dedication. But the process isn't difficult if you do a little planning.
  2. 2
    Open your calendar application. If you're going to make money online, you're going to need to manage your time. Google Calendar is a great solution if you don't already have a calendar application.
    • Look at the month view. See all that empty white space? We're going to rectify that.
  3. 3
    Switch to the week view. Now, scroll to next week, and starting next Monday, create an event that represents the time you can spend working.
    • If you have coffee with a friend in the morning, a racquetball game at noon, or have to pick up the kids at 3pm, adjust your time accordingly—including commute and decompress time.
    • Repeat this step for every day of next week, until your calendar is filled:
    • Don't forget to give yourself a lunch break of at least a half hour. You—and your eyes—will need the break.
    • This will not only help you plan your work availability, it will also help you see where you might be able to recover some extra time for launching your online career.
  4. 4
    Remember, quality over quantity. Launching a career requires hard work, but if your time is managed well you are exponentially more likely to become successful than if you dedicated an entire day but accomplished nothing.
  5. 5
    Be a self-starter. This may or may not come naturally to you, but it's a valuable skill to master for working online. As the saying goes, "On the internet, nobody knows you're a dog," but you do. Here are a couple tips to help you stay motivated:
    • Remind yourself at the start of the day what you are doing, why you are doing it, and what you hope to accomplish. Do that for the short term—today—and for the overall goals you have set for your online career. If you don't do any of the other steps, do this one. It not only helps direct your focus, it puts you into a "work" mindset.
    • Keep a morning routine as if you were going into a professional office. (On casual Friday. Let's not get carried away here!) Set your alarm clock, work out, shower, shave, have some breakfast—whatever your routine might be for office days, keep it going. It puts you in the mindset of "professional," rather than "homebody."
    • Don't sit for 8 hours at a time. Every couple hours—or whenever you finish a significant task—get up and take a walk. The latest reports say sitting all day is very unhealthy. It's hard to be motivated and at your best when you are ill.
    • Don't neglect your personal life. It can be very easy when focusing your energy on starting a career, but play the long game. Friends and family are important, and will be there long after you've retired.
  6. 6
    Be realistic. Starting a business—any business—is hard, and it's not going to make you rich overnight. You've probably heard the stories where the excited housewife went from living in a trailer park to owning a mansion in just a year, thanks to "Willy Billy's Patented GetRichNow™" program, but that's not reality.
    • Willy Billy, on the other hand, wrote and sold 50,000 copies of his book for $39.95 and raked in nearly $2 million.
    • He also planned a marketing and sales campaign that hooked a mere hundredth of 1% of the U.S. population. Willy Billy got rich, but he didn't do it overnight.
    • Exercise due diligence when looking at any online opportunity.

3
Finding Career Opportunities

  1. 1
    Think about what you want to do. It's always best to play to your passions—for example, if you're a wine aficionado, you could start a wine blog and become the next Robert Parker while supporting yourself selling ads on your blog.
    • Just as in the world of brick-and-mortar, there are entry-level jobs and high-paying careers. You may need to start at entry level and work your way up, or you might be able to start at the top. But don't expect to start at the top unless you've already got a lot of expertise and recognition in your field.
  2. 2
    Think big. You may not have the expertise or recognition you need—right now—but if you think ahead, and think big, there's no reason not to get started now, and start building for the future. Here are some online careers that have a lot of traction now, and will likely continue to be career-worthy for some time to come.
    • Home-based physicians and radiologists. Part of a growing field loosely defined as "telehealth," medical professionals are finding life outside the office is rewarding, both monetarily and in flexibility. Other jobs in this field include registered nurses and medical transcriptionists.
    • Software engineers. This is one of the original "work at home" professions, and comprises software engineers, computer scientists, system administrators, technical support, database programmers, UX designers, and more.
    • Creative arts. This broad category includes authors, bloggers, graphics designers, PR specialists, social media experts, and the ever-popular web designer.
  3. 3
    Understand that this is a process of trial and error. Whatever online career you undertake, there will be successes and failures. Accept this, but do not become complacent.
    • Learn from your mistakes and use the information you've gathered to change your methods and improve your productivity, quality, or whatever you've found needs attention.
    • Keep moving forward. As philosophers have long recognized, "perseverance furthers."

Community Q&A

  • How can know if a particular online is a scam or real?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Get the name of the company or gig, and search it online. Read what people are saying about it. If they say it's a scam, it probably is. If people are saying it's real, then it probably is real. Also, most get-rich-quick schemes tend to be scams.
  • Do online surveys work too? And if yes, what are some trusted websites?
    wikiHow Contributor
    They do, but be prepared to put in A LOT of hours - you will frequently be screened out and some sites have a high level of points required to cash out. You must request a pay out (times vary). Sites pay in gift cards, cash, checks and PayPal (varies by site). Survey Lion, Legerweb, Opinion Outpost, Ipsos (I-Say), Global Test Marketing, My Survey, and Swagbucks are the best ones I've found so far.

Tips

  • Don't let anyone hold you down. Many people criticize those making an income from home. Refuse to let negativity stop you from achieving success.
  • "Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out." - Robert Collier
  • According to Forbes, studies show that at-home workers are willing to earn up to 30% less. When you factor in the lack of a commute—including gas, wear-and-tear, and restaurant (or fast-food) lunches, it's not a surprise.
  • The most important tip is: Never give up! If at first you don't succeed, try again. Sometimes the future may seem bleak—do not let that hold you back. Keep pushing, and you'll come out on top.

Warnings

  • Always beware of scams! Perform your due diligence before handing over your information to any program, company, or offer.
  • Examine the Privacy Policy and Terms of Service for anything you're considering signing up to. This will help you determine if they are going to spam you, sell or rent your information to other companies, and things of that nature.

  3. Image titled Make Money Online Step 3
    3
    Tutor students. Many families prefer the flexibility of using an online tutor. Depending on your background, you could be simply helping a child with homework or providing college-level support. You need to have your own computer and high speed internet. Experience required differs among companies. Some require “strong experience,” while others require a specific educational background.

Creating a Niche Website

  1. Image titled Make Money Online Step 4
    1
    Understand how a niche website works. A niche website focuses on very targeted, specific information. The content must be specific, useful and interesting to your target audience. Successful niche websites get anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 visitors per month.[6] You build content on a particular keyword, and you make passive income with Google Adsense or through affiliate links.[7]
  2. Image titled Make Money Online Step 5
    2
    Find a profitable niche. Starting with your interests, write down as many niche ideas as you can. Think about topics people might search online. Ideas include passions (like surfing or body building), fears (like spiders or speaking in front of crowds) and problems (like getting out of debt). Do keyword research to see it others are interested in the topic. Find out if a domain name is available that matches the keyword 100 percent. [8]
  3. Image titled Make Money Online Step 6
    3
    Set up the site. Choose a website building platform, such as WordPress, Joomla or Drupal. Next, choose a domain name and web hosting for your site. The domain name is your web address. Web hosting is a service that connects your site to the internet. Once you have your domain name and web hosting, go to the control panel of your hosting account and install your website platform. Design your website by choosing and installing a theme.[10]
  4. Image titled Make Money Online Step 7
    4
    Create content. Create content that people will find valuable and that will help you rank higher in the search engines. Keyword research can help you to find out what topics people are searching. Write content on these topics to improve your rank in the search engines. You cannot monetize without any visitors.[12]
    • Use a tool like Market Samurai to do keyword research.
    • Put out advertisements to increase traffic to your site.
    • Create a marketing campaign using social media outlets such as Facebook or Twitter.
  5. Image titled Make Money Online Step 8
    5
    Monetize your site. Choose from several different strategies to monetize your website. You can have ads on your website and get paid when visitors click on them. Also, you can promote products, either your own or someone else’s, and get paid when people purchase.[13]
    • With Google Adsense, you install some code on your site that allows ads to appear on it. You get paid when visitors click on the ads.
    • You can also sell advertising space on your website.
    • Affiliate marketing means that you promote products for your niche. A link or banner advertising the product is displayed on your site. If visitors click on it and make a purchase, you receive a commission.

Writing Freelance Articles

  1. Image titled Make Money Online Step 10
    1
    Consider your expertise. If you take the time to reflect on your experiences, you will realize that you have more knowledge about which to write than you might think. Begin by listing three assets that define you, such as your profession, a special hobby or a personality trait. Next, list three things that inspire you, such as religion, education or charity. Finally, list three of your dreams, such as getting married, traveling or spending more time with your children. These three lists should give you many ideas of topics about which you can write.[14]
  2. Image titled Make Money Online Step 9
    2
    Learn principles of effective writing. As a freelance writer, much of your work will likely be published on the internet. The principles of writing for the web differ slightly than writing for print. The content must still be high-quality and well-written, but the presentation must be adjusted for the way people read online material.[15]
    • Because of the low resolution of online text, readers tend to scan rather than read everything from top to bottom. Make your text easily scannable by breaking up text using descriptive headings and bullet points.[16]
    • Get to the point by using the inverted pyramid style. This means writing the conclusion first and then providing examples to support it.[17]
    • Make your copy effective by being concise and using simple language. Aim your writing to an eighth-grade reading level. Remove unnecessary or confusing words or terms.[18]
    • Include keywords and phrases that improve your ranking in the search engines.[19]
  3. Image titled Make Money Online Step 11
    3
    Find work. When you first start out, you may have to accept work writing about a topic you don’t find all that interesting. You must keep an open mind and be willing to accept work that may not be in your desired field. However, as you continue to write, you not only learn about more topics, but you also build your reputation. With time, you can be choosier about assignments you want to accept.[20]
    • Browse the internet for freelancing websites that hire contractors to do work online.
  4. Image titled Make Money Online Step 13
    4
    Get samples. When you first start out as a freelance writer, it can be hard to get work without any published samples. However, it is possible to get quality samples if you are willing to do some writing for free. First, you can publish content on your own blog or website. Also, you can write guest posts for someone else’s blog. Finally, you can write blog posts for free in exchange for a byline.[21]
  5. Image titled Make Money Online Step 12
    5
    Write pitches. If you have located a client for whom you want to write, send pitches, which are topic ideas for articles. Write pitches that not only show your expertise, but also demonstrate your enthusiasm for the topic.[22] First, read the publication to which you are sending pitches to familiarize yourself with what they publish. If applicable, identify a specific section and send our pitch to the appropriate editor. Also, include a brief summary of who you are.[23]
  6. Image titled Make Money Online Step 15
    Image titled Make Money Online Step 14
    6
    Create a writer website or blog. A website not only demonstrates your technical ability, but it also creates an online hub that allows clients to connect to you. Keep the design of your website clean and uncluttered. Include examples of your work that demonstrate the kind of writing you do. Make the samples easy to find and to read, and make it easy for visitors to figure out how to contact you.[24] . A blog highlights your technical ability and showcases your ability to write blog posts. Your blog can be about different topics than those you write about for your clients. In fact, it should be on a topic that interests you. Visitors will see that you can not only write, but you can also build an online community. A good blog has the potential to earn you many referrals for more clients.[25]

Selling Your Stuff Online

  1. Image titled Make Money As a Teen Girl Step 12
    1
    Find items to sell. Purge your house. Set aside a few days or a weekend to clean out and declutter your house. Identify items to throw away, donate and sell. Categorize the items you want to sell. Different categories of items do better on different sites.[26] You can also go out and buy items for selling online at a mark-up.
    • Books, CD’s and DVD’s sell well on Amazon.
    • Collectibles, high-end clothing and small electronics sell well on eBay.
    • Craigslist is best for generic items such as tools or toys.
  2. Image titled Become a Petite Model Step 5
    2
    Open sellers accounts. Create accounts on Amazon, eBay and Craigslist. These platforms make it simple for sellers to set up accounts. You generally need to provide some personal information such as your name and address, and you may need to provide financial information for processing payments.[27]
    • Amazon sellers connect their checking accounts, and proceeds from sales are directly deposited into their checking accounts.
    • eBay will either send your payments directly to your checking account or will deposit them in your PayPal account.
  3. Image titled Say Goodbye to Coworkers Step 12
    3
    Learn then selling guidelines. Each marketplace has guidelines that define what you can and cannot sell. State and federal laws also impact what items are prohibited. In general, you cannot sell alcohol, weapons, service contracts, animals or event tickets. Also, while not always prohibited, you may find restrictions on how you can sell items in some categories, such as art, gift cards and coupons.[28] eBay, Craigslist and Amazon publish these guidelines on their websites.
  4. Image titled Make Money Easily (for Kids) Step 4
    4
    Research selling prices of items similar to yours. Look up completed sales or current listings of items similar to yours. Find the high- and low-end prices, and price your object around the median price level. If you want your item to sell quickly, price it at the low end. The condition of the item also affects the price. Items in poorer condition should be priced at the lower end. Also, consider how many listings there already are of items similar to yours. If many similar items will be competing with yours, you may have to set the price lower to get the sale.[29]

    Consider selling in lots. A lot is a collection of similar items that is sold in a group. For example, if you have a collection of books, magazines or similar pieces of jewelry, consider selling them all at once in a lot. You many not make as much money as you would have if you sold each item separately. However, the items will likely sell more quickly in a lot than they would individually.[30]

    Write a thorough description. Including more details increases the likelihood of making a sale. Since the buyer can’t see the object in person before purchasing, give them as much information as possible so they feel like they know what they’re buying, If an item is used, be truthful and upfront about its condition.[31]
    • Proofread your description before publishing it.
    • Write a descriptive title that provides information about the product, such as size, color or design.

    Add high-quality pictures of the item. Use several images that show the item from different angles. Remove all clutter from the background because it detract attention from the item you’re selling. Use natural lighting instead of a flash. Take close ups so people can see all the details of the item.[32]

    Provide excellent customer service. Answer any questions buyers post as quickly as possible. Be professional and courteous. Positive communication builds your reputation with buyers and gets you return business. Also, package your product well and ship it out quickly. Allowing an item to become damaged or taking too long to ship can negatively affect your reputation among buyers. Wrap all items, especially fragile ones, in appropriate packaging. Commit to shipping items as soon as you receive payment.[33]

  • What type of odd jobs can I do?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Write, research, edit, revise, tutor, develop online courses, teach English composition, teach public speaking, etc.
  • How can I make money quickly?
    wikiHow Contributor
    You can join sites that hire people by simply Googling "Simple jobs online for money." You shouldn't expect to make more than a dollar with one job; also, be really careful about scam jobs and jobs that require your personal info (name, phone number, IP address) to register.
  • I gave some surveys my name, email, and IP address, but not my credit card info. Can I be charged?
    Unless they use your info to hack/send out a scam, not really. However, don't give your email or IP address to anyone you don't know in the future.
  • How do I receive payment for odd jobs online?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Paypal and Vimeo are both popular options. Many banks also offer online services.
