How to make Money from Paid Surveys Online

What are online paid surveys?

Paid surveys are exactly what they sound like — surveys that you complete online for money. Believe it or not, you can actually get paid to do surveys in the comfort of your own home on Make Money from Paid Online Surveys.

Basically, a paid survey is exactly like other surveys you have no doubt completed in the past. You are asked a series of questions and really, that is it. The surveys are generally a decent length. They will often have a target market in mind so you will need to supply demographic details (ie age, gender, etc) before you will be given access and you will not be suitable for all surveys for this reason.

Once you have registered, you will generally get access to surveys which are appropriate for you and then get an email regularly when there is a paid survey available. You can then choose whether to do it depending on if you have enough time free and if the compensation seems worthwhile. If you want to get paid for surveys, it’s a good idea to sign up for many different survey sites as any individual site is not likely to have that many surveys available for you to do.

Survey money can come in many different forms. My favourite ones will pay you immediately via PayPal or your bank account. However, usually you will have to wait until you have completed a certain amount of surveys, and thus earned enough points, before you can cash out your money. Some survey sites will only pay in gift vouchers, so it’s important that you are happy with that as a method of payment before signing up.

Who can do Paid Surveys Online?

Anyone can do an online survey, although if its a survey site based in another country, ensure they cater to Australians before starting. As mentioned above, survey sites will take into account your demographic data and only allow you to do online surveys for money which are appropriate for this demographic. This means that some sites will be better than others as an income source for you. This also means that just because your mum/friend/colleague is doing well with one site doesn’t mean that you will too.

Nine Rewards

This site is easy to use and it is easy to create an account. It takes a few minutes to answer all the questions, but they pay $1 if you do this. When there are survey jobs which are suitable for you, you will be emailed. You can then choose to do the survey or not. Sometimes, you will be deemed to not be suitable after answering a few questions. If this is the case, your account is credited with the minimum payment amount for the survey. If you complete the survey, you get the maximum amount.

The main problem with Nine Rewards is that you can not get cash for surveys — only gift vouchers. The options are not that great either. Currently, they have JB Hi-Fi, Hoyts, Chemist Warehouse, Ticketek, iTunes and a couple of others. Redemptions are possible once you earn at least $10 although the exact amount depends on which gift voucher you want.
