The first question you may have is, "Can I make money with paid surveys?". The answer is yes, you can make money with paid surveys, BUT you need to be careful about how you go about doing it, and you need to realize that you may find yourself feeling ripped off by joining a paid surveys website. In this article, I want to give you the good, the bad, and the ugly of paid surveys. The Good: There are a bunch of paid survey websites out there which will pay you for your opinion. They will pay you because they are doing market research for companies which need information about you, the consumer. A good paid surveys company will pay you somewhere between a few pennies and $75 or more for each research survey you complete. The Bad: There is probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 paid surveys companies out there, some of which are very good, but MOST of which are very bad. The good paid surveys companies will pay you great money to take surveys, but the bad paid surveys will do nothing but sell your email address and send you spam, or send you surveys which will only compensate you with lame prizes. The Ugly: A lot of paid survey databases use deceptive advertising practices, like showing you earning potential of something like $5000 a month, which is nearly impossible to achieve with paid surveys...although you just might get 500 spams email a month, and for the record, THAT IS NOT AN EXAGERATION. Additionally, many paid surveys databases are notorious for NOT giving refunds they promise in their guarantee when you email them to request one...instead, they just ignore you. Conclusion: You CAN make money doing paid surveys, but if you do sign up and pay for a paid surveys database, you are likely to get lots of spam, few survey opportunities, and will have difficulty getting a refund from the paid surveys product. Instead of paid surveys, I'd recommend learning how to market digital products online through internet marketing.
