One of the easiest ways to make money on the Internet to take free paid online surveys. Thousands of surveys are being made every week. To get people to participate and fill out those surveys, the survey makers pay participants in cash or equivalent.
How does this work? What are the requirements to participate? How do you make good money at doing this? Read on…
Very big money is being paid out to people who participate in free paid online surveys. How can these be “free” and “paid” at the same time? It’s because they are free to take, to read to study, whatever. They are free to take. But you get paid for turning in the filled-out survey questionnaire.
What are the requirements to participate? It’s easy! The only requirements are that you be a consumer, 18 years old or older, have access to the internet and enough technical knowledge to be able to send and receive e-mails. That’s it! Would you qualify? If so then you could make money taking free paid online surveys.
How much do you get paid? Most paid surveys pay between $10 and $25, depending on the subject and the length of the survey. This for 5 to 20 minutes of your time. While that’s not a lot of money, if you use half an hour’s time to take one $10 and one $25 survey per day, you would make over $1,000 in a month!
What do I mean by “Very big money…”? Well, there are more than 800 survey makers, companies looking for survey participants to fill out their surveys, in the U.S. There are more than 3,000 worldwide. Just one of these, Greenfield Online for example, paid out over $4.2 million to its survey participants in 2007!

To make money at taking free paid online surveys you will need to be registered as a potential survey taker with a number of good survey makers, say 150 – 200. You sign up online; there is no charge to register. You might get only a few free paid online surveys a year from each one, but they add up. It’s in the numbers.
The problem will be to get a good list of good survey makers that really pay (about 40% of them do not). The best way to get such a list is to join a good paid survey membership site. As a member you can get a copy of the list that they maintain. Pick a site with a strong guarantee and a low refund rate.
Once you get your copy of their list, set up a separate free e-mail address (such as with Yahoo or Gmail) and use that for your paid survey work. Sign up with all of the survey makers that you can, then be prepared to sort them out. There are always some sales companies that manage to sneak in and try to sell you things.
If they send you more sales offers than surveys, put them in your spam file or blacklist them with your e-mail service provider. Don’t let them from bother you. It’s like sorting out beans fresh from the thresher. Sort out the rocks, leaves, twigs, etc. and throw them away. Keep the beans (good survey makers)!
