If you have been trying to make money online, you might be wondering, “are paid surveys real?”. I am glad to say, the answer is yes. However, there several things you should be aware of if you want to take paid surveys online.
Fake Survey Sites
The main problem when making money with surveys, is finding real paid survey sites. I don’t like to use the word “scam” to loosely, but some websites only exist to collect email addresses and other data. Then, they turn around and sell your information to anyone with cash. Check all privacy policies before you register.
The unwary will be charged a fee for poor quality survey panel lists. Or, after you sign up, the site disappears altogether a few months later. Worst of all, is the wasted time, money and effort. No profit is ever made.
Finding Real Survey Sites
I have participated with at least fifty websites offering ways to make money with surveys. Many of them were next to worthless. I would like for you to start making money with top paid surveys right away. Here are some tips to help you narrow down your list.
One of the best ways to find out about a survey panel is to check out their rating with The Better Business Bureau. I have joined sites in the past, only to find out later that they had an F rating and never paid members reliably.
CASRO – The Council of American Survey Research Organizations. Any survey website that earns membership with this group must have top-notch credentials. Below are a few sites that make the grade.
What To Watch Out For
Legitimate survey panels will not charge you a fee or share your email address with anyone. If every communication you get is related to a product for sale, be careful. All above-board survey sites will provide an opt-out link with every email they send.
Do not give out your bank account number or financial information. If you live in The United States, you will have to provide tax numbers when you make more than $600.00 in a year with one website. By that point, you will know you are dealing with a real survey company and your information is safe.
It has taken me several years to find the highest paying survey sites that always make me the most money online. Follow the tips above so you can avoid all the problems I faced at first. If you were to ask me, “are paid surveys real?“, I would say, most definitely yes!
Wishing you online success,
