The Truth About Online Survey Sites.

How do you make money with surveys?

This is a question I got this morning. I made a post about internet scams a while back that mentioned surveys among the top 4 of worst ways to make money online.

So here's the truth about online survey sites.

Surveys are one of the biggest scams online. The advertisers prey on people who want to make money online easily without doing much but want a bit of fun.

Incentived offers are the worst of the lot . These type of surveys are called incentived offers because the advertiser or the owner of the site offer something like a PSP, Laptop, etc as an incentive and you sign up for offers some of them requiring that you enter your credit card info for a free sample.

The person who makes money is the owner of the site. They get anywhere from $5 - $200 just for getting someone to enter their credit card info or requesting a free sample so they are able to pay you anywhere from a few pennies to bigger amounts or you get a chance at the incentive. Most times you won't get the incentive because the owner of the site is greedy or there is no physical incentive in the first place.

Other survey sites where you fill out polls and questionairres don't pay much - usually a few cents per survey and that is if you do qualify in the first place. Others pay you in useless Amazon vouchers and gift cards or enter you in draws to win money and prizes - which are usually bogus to begin with. Some sites make you jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get a payout.

The best way to make money online is to be a part of a market where people are spending money, which I will show you when you sign up for the 7 day course.

Affiliate marketing, ebay and freelance are three types of legitimate ways to make money online.

Do You Need A Website To Make Money Online?

When you think about making money online you think about websites, where people go and buy stuff. The person/company that owns the website makes money for sure.

Do you really need a website to make money online?

A website would be the ideal thing to have as an internet/affiliate marketer and is a must at some point if you are serious about making money online but...

You DO NOT need a website to make money online.

Affiliate marketing is one of the best businesses to be in as it allows you to start with little to no expenses. And this means that you do not have to worry about paying someone to make a website for you or spend countless hours trying to build one.

With affiliate marketing, the websites are provided for you already in the form of merchant companies who pay you a percentage of the money they make. All you have to do is send people to their websites and all you need to do that is a special link which is provided by the merchant themselves.

The next worry is where do you put the link so people can get to the merchant website in order for you to be paid.

Again, your own website would be the ideal thing but you do not need one.

There are lots of places online where you can submit your affiliate link but you have to do it in a way that will be attractive to potential users (people who will buy through your link). Writing articles, participating in forums, classified ad sites, your social networking profile and blogs are some of the places you can use to make up for not having a website.

You concerns about making money online can be solved, and most times as in this case you'll get the answer that you want. You can make money online without a website.

My 7 day course outlines some ways you can start making money online without a website so make sure you do sign up.

Work From Home - No Experience Necessary

A college degree certainly helps these days if you need a job and while I am all for higher learning it is not necessary at all if you are looking to work online.

As a matter of fact, making money from the internet is perfect for someone who did not go to college or doesn't have the qualifications to get a high paying job.

I decided that I wasn't going to college because I just was fed up of school, and turns out I found what I wanted to do with my life was to become an internet marketer. Knowing that some internet marketers make multi-millions per year helped me make up my mind.

Everything can be learned and if you have patience and determination then you can potentially go on to earn more than some college graduates make in a year.

Also being a complete beginner is ok. At Wealthy Affiliate, there are people who join as complete beginners and go on to post some amazing success stories in the members forum. And I was a complete beginner once as well.
