Most people have heard of paid surveys as a way to make some money online. Many do doubt them though, believing that they are just one big hoax. Are paid surveys some big scam, or are they a legit way to make some money online, read this article to find out.

Paid Surveys

I think paid surveys get a rougher ride that they deserve. Yes there are better way's to earn online, but for the less skilled people or online newbies, paid surveys can be great. Paid surveys were a god send to me at one time, when they provided me with some very needed cash. This is how I know that you can earn money with paid surveys, because I have done it. Saying that, you can never go thinking your going to get rich doing it. They are just not that profitable, two to four hundred a month is the most you can really expect, if you take it very serious.

Are surveys a scam?

Why do people think they are a scam? most people probably can't see how anybody could earn this much, filling in simple forms online, but you can, your opinion is worth money. The fact that you don't qualify for a lot of the surveys you are sent, and are fazed after you have already started one, often leads people to believe surveys are a scam. This is just something I had to get used to, and I did in the end. I have always been fazed out of about forty percent of the surveys I receive. If you get a lot of surveys sent out to you daily, then it doesn't matter as much, you can still qualify for enough surveys to really make some money.

What ever the reason people think that doing paid surveys is one big scam. The fact remains, that most of the free paid survey panels that I have used and researched, are all owned by legit businesses. Businesses, which can be found on the BBB Code of Business Practices (BBB Accreditation Standards) website. meaning they are legit businesses, working to reliable standards. So you really can make some money doing paid surveys. Even for people who have no skills what so ever on the computer, they can still earn taking surveys. That is what is so great about them, the fact that anyone can take part in them.

Your opinion is worth cash

We all have the one thing that paid survey panels want, an opinion. Big businesses and corporations now splash out billions every year, trying to find out what people like and don't like. It helps them do better business and makes more money, so they give you money in return. You can't expect a full time wage taking surveys, no way. Yet, you can get yourself a nice bit of cash if you put in the hard work. Although the pay rate is low, there is no requirement on what you can do. The more panels you sign up to, the more surveys you get sent, the more cash you make, it is as simple as that.

So can you really earn with paid surveys? Yes you can, but don't go expecting to get rich. Check this paid survey guide, just click.

The only problem I have found is that they can be hard to contact to follow up things with. Lost payments, surveys that stop working after two hours working on them, can be frustrating.

I never attempt these longer surveys anymore. I stick with the ten to thirty minute ones.

Insightful article Micheal, keep them coming.

No, all paid 4 surveys are not scam. I have one that I have been with for 5 years. But to join I need you to send me your email address, first and last name in order to join. The pay for surveys range from $.50, .75, 1.00 and $2.00 and you don't have to earn points. Your money will also be deposited onto a prepaid mastercard. My email address is :
