Paid surveys have become a more and more popular way for teens and housewives to make a little extra spending money.
I have been hearing about these more and more recently so I dove in to analyze what the deal with these things is.
The way they work is that companies need information from consumers. Traditionally you have seen the woman standing in the mall, who offers you $20 for a half hour of your time. The company then asks questions from you about a product or a service to figure out what you want, what you would buy, the way a product looks, or something of that nature.
It turns out that paid surveys make money in exactly the same way. The world of online scams has gotten most of us to be suspicious of anything that looks like a way to make money from doing something online. Here is a guide to finding legitimate paid online surveys.
The big problem people run into in this area are companies that charge you to get started. A legitimate company will not ask you to pay for anything upfront.
There are good sites where you can find legitimate paid surveys where you can make a few extra bucks from home.
Since this is a new industry, make sure it is a reputable site, other than that, have fun clicking!
