    Hello guys,

    There are many people here earning an incredible income from paid surveys. But some people (Like me [​IMG]), face problems in taking up surveys.

    1) First hurdle is the companies with which we sign up. We need to know the companies that are paying and most importantly the companies that are paying more. I know there are many lists in this forum in a piece meal fashion. Please include all the ones here, so that we could have a consolidated list.

    2) The next hurdle we face is the strategy that gives us earnings. There are questions like what profiles attract surveys from advertisers. (I Know people should give their true profile)

    3) Though many of us are getting considerable number of surveys, many people fail even to qualify it. Then they are forced to get the peanuts of share for spending the time. So the point here is, how to get qualified from the preliminary questions.

    4) The ultimate one - What is the killer strategy that will help in earning more money by completing the surveys.


    Please do share other tips that you feel it is essential...

    Thanks
    Sam

    Good questions. I am not going to list out all of my sites as I am with hundreds and, of those, about 50 pay me regularly or semi-regularly. If anyone wants my complete list of surveys that have paid me, feel free to PM me.

    What profiles? Well, like you said, I advocate honestly. That said, I do seem to be an "appealing" demographic for surveys. Work full time, mom of three, in my 30s, married, have 2 cars, shop online, etc.

    How to get qualified? I don't think I can answer that one. I get into some and I don't get into others. It's just the way the cookie crumbles [​IMG] Again, I don't think there can be a strategy here other than 1) be honest and 2) realize that with surveys there are no guarantees.

    The killer strategy? The more good sites you are with, the better. If I were only with 3-5 sites, I would only make 10% of the $600-$800 I tend to make most months. You have to diversify.

    My strategy is to avoid them completely since I only made $5 in who knows how many hours trying to find good paid surveys companies and sorting through spam.

    Hi Sam,

    I have a couple of more tips that can help:

    1. Sign up for a number of different market research companies. Some companies only send out invitations on a monthly basis, or on a fortnightly basis. The more you sign up for the more invitations you'll receive.

    2. Complete the 'Screener Surveys'. Often the market research companies ask you to complete some free surveys to get started. This helps them to learn about your interests and what surveys are right for you.

    3. Be Honest. Market research companies are interested in your honest opinions and use ways to weed out any liars. Don't expect to get any more invitations if they catch you!

    4. Be Prompt. Quite often the early responder gets the survey! Check your email daily and you won't miss any invitation because you were to late!

    5. Have Fun! Being able to share your opinion about products and services is very rewarding.

    I don't seem to be an appealing demographic so I am still holding onto the sites that pay "cash" by check or paypal. I don't care to gather gifts or "spin the wheel" as I am spending the bulk of my time building an Affiliate Marketing blog now. But my fave survey sites are these. I know there are many other good ones, I just haven't gotten surveys from them yet. Some I have not filled out all the "profile surveys" which I believe are very important as to getting the opportunity to do surveys from them.

    Pinecone
    Focusline
    OpinionOutpost
    Cashcrate(like their littel, .80 surveys you can take(2) each 24 hours)
    Sendearnings pays me to just read an email and pays cash.

    As I learn about more that pay cash, I will update here. Good post Samuel, thank you much[​IMG]

    I have had some really good luck with the site I use. I get paid once a month they send a check. Never had any problems and the surveys I sometimes have issues with but I never have problems filling out the offers. It works well for me. below is my earnings for today I spent about an hour and half doing surveys. but I could get money for shopping or by referring others.
    Offers: $7.90
    Shopping: $0.00
    Daily Surveys: $0.00
    From Referrals: $0.45
    Bonuses: $0.00
    Total Earnings: $8.35

    There are way too many different strategies that one could you use make more money with paid surveys. One of which is taking every single survey sent to you. If you don't you will slowly be phased out of their survey rotation.

    Also, filling out each and every profile that each company has for you is vital to your success.

    The truth is... you are going to have to do a little work to make some money. It isn't "just sign up" and you are making money. You need to put forth some effort.

    I have paid a market research professional to put together a ten step process that walks people through the paid survey process. It is free and found on my website. 100% of our readers who have applied each step has made five times as more money than those who just sign up with no clue what to do.

    Check it out!
