If you need money FAST, taking surveys for money are literally the easiest and fastest way to make money online.
Surveys are a fun and easy thing to do while watching Netflix, hanging out on campus or waiting for your kid’s sports practice to get done.
Even my teen son makes money and earns free gift cards with surveys, so it’s definitely an easy way to earn money.
The key with taking surveys for money, is in order for you to actually make decent from them, you have to sign up for numerous survey companies. You aren’t going to get approved for every survey company and you won’t get approved for every survey opportunity.
When Madi and I experimented with making money with online surveys, some highly rated survey c0mpanies didn’t approve me but DID approve her, simply because they were only accepting new people of a certain demographic.
You need to sign up for numerous survey companies because they won’t necessarily have surveys for you to complete every single day and you might not qualify for all survey options. Sometimes their targeting a certain age bracket, or gender, or income level, so signed up for many survey companies is key to actually making surveys a viable income option.
✔️We highly recommend you use a different email address than your main email address, simply because you’ll get tons of emails every day about suggested you can apply for.
✔️If you’re serious about making money with surveys, you need to sign up with many of them (for the reasons above).
✔️Only sign up for legit survey companies. There’s many that are scams and simply not worth your time.
✔️Be 100% honest in your survey answers, you won’t know exactly what they’re looking for until you fill things out. They also rely on honest answers to help make company decisions.
What I recommend is signing up with 5+ survey companies to start to compare which sites you like, they all run a little differently and have different type of survey opportunities.
