7 Secrets to Getting PAID for your Opinion
Are you known for being opinionated? Do you enjoy sharing your opinions with others? Do you know how to provide valuable feedback? If you answered yes to these questions, then you might be just the person online survey sites are looking for. Online survey sites have grown in popularity over the years, and they are a perfectly legit and legal way to make real cash. Here are 7 secrets to getting paid for your opinion!
1. Pick a variety of survey sites.
There are many legit survey sites you can sign up for, and you should sign up for several. That way, if one site doesn’t have any opportunities for you, another one might. Some options might include Pinecone, Opinion Outpost & Send Earnings.
Here are 3 of my FAVORITE Survey Sites:
- Pinecone – Highest Payouts, One of my Favorite Companies!
- Opinion Outpost – Pays in Amazon Gift Cards + I have been a member for years!
- Send Earnings – Get a FREE $5 Sign Up Bonus + Get Paid to Read Emails!
2. Make sure all of your information is complete.
The more information you add to your profile, the more opportunities you will get. Make sure you fill out ALL of the information fields and update them as needed in order to get the most opportunities.
3. Give thorough feedback.
Don’t respond with answers like, “it’s nice.” Instead, give as much detail as possible. Find both positive and negative about a product. Use proper grammar, no slang, and double check your entries before submitting them.
4. Check your email daily.
Be sure you check your email often in order to take advantage of all of the opportunities coming to you. The more you take advantage of and respond to in a timely manner, the more you are certain to get in the future.
5. Explore new sites.
If you hit a lull in any of the sites you belong to, don’t hesitate to look for new ones. There are new survey sites starting up each month, so chances are you can always find a more active one. You can also join survey based Facebook groups where members share opportunities and rate various companies.
6. Check out all companies with the BBB.
Be sure you check out all of the survey companies you are considering with the BBB. You put your time into these surveys, so you don’t want to have the company disappear overnight or be sluggish with your paycheck.
7. Refer your friends.
Many survey sites will give you an additional monetary bonus when you refer a friend to sign up. Let your friends know about sites you love so they can join too! It is a great way to earn some extra cash without a ton of effort.

Hi Briana, you would want to check with your accountant to be sure on that.
