Get Paid to Fill Out Surveys? How Much Money Can I Earn with This?

The fact that some people claim to get paid to fill out surveys is nothing new. There are hundreds of sites out there promising that they have the surveys that will pay you hundreds if not thousands of dollars a month if you just register with them and spend an hour or two a day filling them out.

Are they scamming us all, or can you really get paid to fill out surveys?

Unfortunately, many are scams, but there are some legitimate opportunities to get paid to fill out surveys. Yet, you won't make the thousands of dollars many sites claim you will make and what you do make won't come from just logging into some website for a few minutes every now and then.

In order to make money online with surveys you have to do three things:

  1. Find the legitimate, honest opportunities.
  2. Dedicate as much time as possible to working the paid surveys.
  3. Find the most lucrative options, such as phone surveys or focus groups.

When you are working with a legitimate survey company you can expect to make as little as $20 a month to as much as $700 a month. If you go with focus groups and other related opportunities you could come out at $1,000 or more in a month, but you will have to spend more time doing those things than you would with simple surveys.

In order to find the widest variety of legitimate survey opportunities you can take advantage of the free guide found at www.SurveyMoneyMachine.com. Don't fall for the scams that want you to pay $30 or more for a guide like this!

Once you have tapped into legitimate opportunities through the guide remember that you will get out of this what you put into it. You should be able to find many different surveys to take advantage of, especially if you are willing to do phone surveys or participate in more in-depth focus groups. Technically that goes beyond just clicking in answers to questions online, but you can make more money if you open yourself up to other opportunities.

Remember, the figures given above only apply to legitimate survey opportunities and they are only estimates of what you can really earn taking surveys and participating in similar opportunities online. Most people who dedicate at least an hour a day to taking surveys will earn at least $500, if not a bit more, in a month.

If you can put in more time and find a lot of focus groups and other lucrative opportunities that you qualify to participate in, then of course you could potentially quite a bit more some months.

When you get paid to fill out surveys it is not a source of consistent income. You cannot count on making what you made this week next week. It depends on what surveys you qualify for and have time to take. That may change from one week to the next.

Survey taking is a great way to earn some income on the side, but it isn't something you are going to consistently pay all the bills with.
