Online Paid Surveys – 7 Tips for Starting Off Right

There has been a great deal of interest in online paid surveys recently. Yes, you can participate if you are a consumer (and if you buy groceries and clothing you qualify!) Big companies want to know what potential customers think about various products, and what their preferences are.

They hire market researchers to formulate the questions and design the questionnaires. Then survey makers run a computer search on their databases of potential survey takers to get a list of those who qualify.

So, all you basically have to do is to make sure that your name and demographic info is in the data bases of all the good survey makers. (There are good survey makers, so-so ones, bad ones, terrible ones and worse…)

So here are 7 tips to get you started off right:

1. Pick a good online paid surveys guide company to steer you to the good survey makers and away from the rest.

2. Avoid the “free” guide companies. Usually someone else is paying them to take you to places you’d rather not be.

3. Insist on a 60 to 90 day money-back guarantee from the guide company you choose. The guarantee should be backed up by a bank or financial company such as ClickBank or PayPal.

4. Look at the refund rate of all prospective guide companies before signing up. Low refund rates mean happy clients. High refund rates mean unhappy clients. Look for a refund rate of 3-5{919468b76a1b111b1791bdf3e51426d8562c963af300c016649515c15309dd6c} (ideal). Avoid anything over 10{919468b76a1b111b1791bdf3e51426d8562c963af300c016649515c15309dd6c}

5. When you start up with your guide company, they will give you a copy of their list of preferred survey makers. Sign up for all of these, or as many as you possibly can. Each survey maker is separate and has its own data base. You want to make sure that they each have your application and data so they can send you surveys.

6. Set up a special new free e-mail account for your paid survey business. You will get a lot of mail. Make sure your spam filters are turned off. If not, they will block survey offers from reaching you.

7. Check your e-mail inbox daily. Answer all correspondence. When you receive invitations to take surveys respond quickly, answer all questions fully. Do this and you will get more and bigger surveys and related work that pay more.

Follow the above tips and you will establish a good income from paid surveys, focus groups, product testing, and other related activities.
