  The Truth about Paid Surveys

The concept of paid surveys has been around for a long time. Only recently however, with the advance of home computers and the increase in home businesses, have paid surveys became a great way to make money.You are reading this because you want to know if you can you get paid to take online surveys. The simple answer is “Yes”. Marketing companies or firms will pay participants to answer questions via surveys. They then resell the data they collect to larger companies looking to invest in a new marketing plan or ad campaign.
Let me explain how modern paid surveys work and then you can decide for yourself if participating in paid surveys is right for you.

There are companies and corporations that spend billions of dollars every year in advertising. You see their ads on TV, hear them on the radio and even get them on your cell phones. Obviously, these companies make money by “convincing” you to buy a product through these ads. How do they know what will make money for them and what? Good question, because they don’t know. Some companies will try sample ads to a select population and then monitor their results before ramping up to a full scale ad campaign. Other companies will hire a marketing firm before launching an ad campaign in order to get the best information on domestic trends, user habits and interests. Once a company hires a marketing firm, the firm will then collect data from a select populace using web site traffic results, TV ad results and yes…even paid surveys.

By completing a paid survey, you are offering information about yourself: your habits, opinions, likes and dislikes to the marketing firm. That firm will sell your information to another company that will in turn try to sell a product back to you via an ad somewhere.

Surveys are a great way to make an extra $100 to $250 a week in your spare time or after a long day of job hunting. If you are disabled, or a stay at home mom surveys will work well for you too. You can multiply the number of surveys you are selected for by signing up with multiple marketing firms possible earning $400 to $800 a week.

If you think paid surveys are for you, we highly recommend SurveyScout or Survey Pass.
