    I am new to the board and have been reading through the messages. Could someone please direct me to a few of the top sites to join for the surveys? Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Hi Sherry. There are several posts in this blog that have signatures pointing you in the right direction for 'real' paid surveys. (Not the ones that ask you to pay! There are plenty of free real directories to get you started.)

    And Sherry, my advice would be don't go crazy and sign up with 400 sites...but at the same time, don't limit yourself to just a "few" either or you won't feel like you make much. It's have a great solid mix that gets you paid more often.

    I would kind of reccomend the opposite. The way I was able to find eight really good sites that pay every month was by signing up with 400 and then widdling ddown to ones that are worth wild. A major thing to remember if someone uses this strategy is to have a seperate email account because you will receive alot of junki.

    Very true. There are days I get tons of invites and qualify for that is why I say there are no guarantees. Just keep trying and be honest [​IMG]

    benchia if you paid through clickbank recently for that list you can probably get your money back. Doesn't hurt to try!

    Hi there Happygal! I have clicked on your link quite a few times and the link that appears is just a page that says blog source, survey stars and the rest of it is empty. I would really really like to find out what paid survey sites you recommend. Is there any other way i could get these links from you? [​IMG]

    happygal, thanks for all your info. I tried doing the survey thing with SurveySpot and I wasn't that excited about it. However, after reading your blog I may be inclined to try it again.

    Legitimate survey sites would never ask you to pay money. Also, while many sites are free to sign up with, they don't target their panel well enough, and end up sending too many invitations for surveys that you don't actually qualify for. Unfortunately, taking surveys online won't make you rich, but if you make it part of the many things you do online, or from home, it can add up. Look for survey sites that are attached to real market research firms who are doing real surveys for real clients for best results.

    I have actually had some success making some extra cash online too. Just be careful because some are not legit.

    I have tried several of the survey sites listed and came up empty handed. Most either reward with an "entry" in their "daily sweepstakes" or I am disqualified 20 or 30 minutes into the survey.
    Big waste of time and definitely won't help pay the bills.

    OP - good advice! To help combat all of the e-mails that you get from various survey companies (and to avoid having to check your e-mail every 5 minutes to thumb through everything), I've always had a separate e-mail address setup JUST for surveys. Helps me keep a better track of everything that way, too [​IMG]
