    Hi Shiva,

    Affiliate Marketing by far. No comment on Data Entry and Paid Surveys.

    I agree with Newbie Shield!

    Affiliate Marketing you reap benefits more than once for the work you do.

    How many times do you get paid for entering one person into a database?


    Same with surveys =]

    Affiliate Marketing all the way! =]

    Affiliate marketing - no doubt about it, besides if I EVER even thought about doing the survey thing again, I would be treading treacherous grounds with my other half.[​IMG]

    It depends on your skill sets. I recommend you consider changing the topic as Affiliate marketing vs. data entry. Surveys will never come into play.

    I know a person who earns $500 in affiliate marketing a month and I also know a guy who runs data entry firm in India. He earns $2500 a month. So it all depends on your skillsets and hardwork. In general both are good earning opportunities...

    with affiliate marketing you know what you are getting into and all the hard work you put into does pay off.

    When I first came online to look for stay at home jobs I went to a lot of survey and gpt sites and got a bunch of viruses on my PC once I figured out where they were coming from I never went back to one again they also come in a lot through messenger and other chat places. And it's scam after scam I might add.

    Affiliate marketing may not be easy, but it's the best of the three by a long shot. There are scams in affiliate marketing too, but once you know what to look for and have been around a bit they can't touch you because you know better.

    Personally, i have tried paid survey before. But didn't get much results from it. As for affiliate marketing, it is not easy at first. Once you get the hang of it, it is easy to earn money from it.

    Paid surveys, in my experience, are a waste of time. Data entry claims are very misleading. Affiliate marketing blows them both out of the water, although it can be challenging.

    Am I right in believing that the paid survey companies who offer you $40+ a survey are all scams?

    I would definitely have to say that Affiliate marketing is the best of the bunch. Paid surveys are too much of a pain, especially when you continually get "NOT AVAILABLE IN YOUR COUNTRY".

    Data Entry is not likely going to pay enough unless you have good data entry skills.

    Affiliate marketing on the other hand can be set and pretty much forgotten if done correctly and you focus on the right keywords.
