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.


  1. The truth is I have participated in quite a lot of these so called survey sites and they did not pay out as much as the advertisement said it would. The only advice I can give you is be aware and use your common sense because 95% are of them are scammed.

  2. I do a lot of surveys, and while they don't pay out a lot, you can make money from the RIGHT surveys.

    hoping to offer one thing back and help others such as

  4. I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative and
    amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i'm very happy that I found this during my search for something concerning this.

  9. Its like you learn my mind! You appear to understand so much
    approximately this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something.
    I think that you just can do with some percent to force the message home
    a bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic
    blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.

  10. Everything published made a great deal of sense. But, consider this, suppose you were to write a awesome title?
    I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean "The Truth About Online Survey Sites." is kinda plain. You should glance at Yahoo's front page and
    see how they write news titles to grab viewers to click.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get people excited about what you've written. Just my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.
