What to expect when earning money from surveys?
Answering survey questions is one of the easiest sources of revenue on the internet. The problem is, since it’s so easy, many people have joined survey sites and the revenue streams are not as big as they were. Earning money from surveys has been a bit more difficult.
Location also makes a difference. The biggest payments for answering surveys are offered to people from USA, UK and Western European countries. If you are located anywhere else in the world, you may have to use a VPN or lie about your background in order to receive more income from surveys.
Apps and sites that are worth your time
- Google opinion rewards
- App store survey apps
- Academic surveys
1. Google Opinion Rewards
Google Opinion Rewards is probably the best survey programme offered on the internet. The payments are good and it’s easy to get questions if you are the right demographic. Moreover, the questions aren’t extremely boring or repetitive.
The bad news is, it’s Google who is collecting your information. If you are comfortable with technology giant, whose business model is based on selling ads, gathering even more information about you, then opinion rewards is a good option for you. Privacy is the issue of the 21st century, and no one knows how the data we all give away can or will be used against us.
Swagbucks is probably the best known survey site on the internet. It’s been working since forever, and most beginners start on this site.
The site offers many ways to earn some income, which are not limited to surveys.
Because Swagbucks is so popular, don’t expect to earn a fortune answering questions. But even a few dollars per month can nicely supplement your income.
3. App Store survey apps
One place where Apple wins decisively, is the quality of apps offered on their App Store. Compared to Android, App Store has significantly better survey apps. Earning money from surveys on those apps is relatively easy and convenient.
Secret tip: set your App Store location to United States. The most popular survey apps consistently offer you new surveys with great bonuses.
The only disadvantage, is that people who do not own Apple products have no way to access these apps. However, with enough digging, passable apps CAN be found on the Android app store.
4. Academic surveys
If you are ready to answer very private questions about yourself or your family (for the sake of science!), then academic surveys are the right choice for you.
Academic surveys require significantly more personal information than regular surveys. You will likely have to answer questions about your health, chronic illness, addiction and mental health.
If you are a person interested in helping science from the comfort of your own home, while receiving income, academic surveys are just right for you.
Be ready to spend time doing endless pre-screening questions. Some surveys are also conducted with the help of video interviews. If you do not have a webcam, you may miss out on these surveys.
