I thought I would give you a Few Quick Tips on Getting Started Taking Surveys Online since I have been getting a lot of questions recently. First I want to say that If you have never looked to Taking Online Surveys it’s a great way to earn a few extra dollars at home, it’s not a lot but it’s a great plan for a little extra spending money or a great way to earn some extra gift cards to use at Christmas and Birthdays.
Tip #1 – Sign up for a New Email Account! You will get survey offers daily so I use 1 account for all my survey companies. Then when you’re ready to take some surveys log in to that account and you’ll have all your offers in 1 place.
Tip #2 – Sign Up for Multiple Companies & Take the Highest Value Offer. Each offer will tell you how many points it is worth. You can then decide which offer is the most worth your time. If you are going to take one 15-20 minute survey a day pick the highest offer from your favorite survey company.
Tip #3 – Take the Screening Surveys – One of the reasons you don’t get qualified survey opportunites may be because you haven’t taken the screening questions so the Company can’t place you in a demographic. Surveys are driven by what demographic you are in so if you’re in a highly saturated demographic you’ll have to get in on the surveys quickly before your demographic fills up.
Tip #4 – Be Consistent – Set a time and a place that you do Online Surveys, these typically pay anywhere from $2-$5 for a 15 minute survey so it’s not a lot of money but if you do 1 a day it can start to add up.
Tip #5 – Know what you’re working for – I find that if I set a “goal” of what I’m going to use the money for then it’s a nice motivation. Maybe you want some extra Amazon Gift Cards, or you like to earn Free Starbucks Gift Cards, or maybe you’re saving for Christmas Gifts. Set a small goal and then when you accomplish that one you’ll be more motivated to continue.
