    You have to act quickly on paid surveys. I've heard some posters comment that they don't get enough surveys or that they don't qualify for most of them. A lot of the demographic groups are very competitive and fill up quickly. If you are serious about making extra cash with surveys you have to act EXTREMELY fast (and I mean drop everything you are doing and take the survey). I find that this works quite well.

    How much do you earn from surveys every month?

    I make upwards $500 per month, sometimes a bit more! It is definitely not something you can quit your job and do, but if you need extra money and have some free time....go for it!!!

    I think that people located in the US will be able to do better with surveys than those outside the states. I may be wrong, but that has been my observation.

    That would be true, anyone located in the US can make more by doing surveys and any other country. If you are a male, you can make a lot more as well.

    Thats true as most survey panels target the US markets only but international members can make some money also just not as much.

    I am from Malaysia and I make USD50 - USD100 every month from doing the online surveys. In fact I just did a survey from Brand Institute today will earn me USD40 [​IMG] I think this survey is paid higher because they are targetting the asians. Once I did a survey that pays USD75, that is the highest paid survey I ever received and they have paid me for that [​IMG]

    For international residents, to make more money you need to find referrals for the survey programs. Most survey programs have referrals programs, so make use of them...

    The amount I earn is a few hundred per month but I'm just doing them part time for now. If I did them full time, I would be making considerable more than that.

    I joined all the free ones [​IMG]

    I don't join the sites that charges a fee coz there are too many scam ones though I believe there are legitimate ones.

    I learned my lesson never to pay for ANY paid survey sites no matter how good they sound.

    There are so many FREE sites out there and you don't have to spend a dime ever. You just have to make sure to fill out your profile and check your email several times a day. Survey quotas fill quickly!

    With the holidays around the corner I seem to be getting a lot more surveys. The ones that pay good are:

    Global Test Market
    Greenfield Online
    SurveySpot
    Your2Cents
    PineCone
    Sendearnings (but only $1.00/per survey per day)
    InboxFollars (but only $1.00/per survey per day)
    Lightspeed Panel
    ipsos I-say
    Opinion Outpost
    ClearvoiceSurveys
    CreationRewards (just stay away from the "Paid Offers")
    Esearch
    e-Rewards

    Happy survey chasing!

    Hi all

    How does everyone qualify for surveys? I just finished taking 5 in Opinion Outpost and didn't qualify for any of them. Same thing with Greenfield Online. I sat here bored to death one day and kept taking them as they came up on Greenfield Online. I must have taken 7 or 8 and didn't qualify to even finish one of them. I am starting to get a complex lol

    Hello Cindy,

    don't give up! It takes some time to get things going. Make sure you fill out your profile, this way they'll send only surveys that match your data.
    I had 3 surveys sent my way with Opinion Outpost today, one paid $9.00, one $5.00 and the third one I did not qualify for.
    I recall Greenfield testing me for 2 month before they started sending the first paying surveys.

    Just be patient, things will get better as you go on.

    Yeah, it can get pretty frustrating when you go all the way through the survey and you don't qualify at the very end. You can actually get a hold of the survey company and complain about this. It takes some guts to call them up and do this, but it pays off. If you finish the survey, tell them that they need to accord you the money you earned. I have done this, and I think that only once or twice they have not given me what I deserved. Most people don't know that you can do this. On our site, we have a newsletter that talks about little tricks like this that you can do to increase the money you generate from your surveys. There is a lot that you can do to make even more from survey sites.

    Most legit survey companies wont do this. Usually you get a screener in the beginning of the surveys to see if your demographics fit the needs of the survey. If you don't qualify then they let you know at the beginning, it is rare to go through the entire survey and then be told that you don't qualify.

    Nevertheless, it can still happen. Don't worry about it cinders. Sounds like you have experienced not qualifying at the end too. Don't give up on taking surveys.
     
  20. If you fill out your entire profile with all your demographic questions, then you have a bigger chance of getting more survey invitations.
