Taking online surveys seems to be one of the easiest things that a person can do to make free money online. However, some people attempt to try out this opportunity and fail to make money.

In this article, I will discuss in detail - " Can you make money taking surveys online?"

How could you fail to make money taking surveys when it is so freaking easy?

Many reasons can be attributed to the fact that most people have little to no success with paid surveys.

Some Paid Survey Sites

Are you serious about making money Online?

I started my online business at the age of 51 after the company I was working with Closed Down. 

I joined a lot of Paid survey companies in order to make money but soon realized that you can never make a living by taking the surveys.

I had set my goals and wanted to earn 6 figure income but with surveys I could hardly earn for a Pizza.

I was guided by a friend to start Affiliate Marketing and was fortunate enough to find a comprehensive Affiliate marketing training at WA.

Few months down the line I started making good income and now I am an established online Entrepreneur and have fulfilled my dreams of making full time income working from the comforts of my home in flexible hours. 

 Where to start?

Some people just don't know where or how to start.

Most of the people have heard that they could possibly earn some money from taking surveys but they don't know how they should go about it?

I have received a lot of queries related to online surveys and most of them are like:

How to find legitimate survey panels to join?

What do I have to do to get paid?

How to make sure that that I don't fall for a paid survey scam?

It is for sure that all the newbies may not have the answers to these questions right away and for that reason, they may never attempt to make money taking surveys.

Unrealistic expectations:

Most of the people feel that they would start making hundreds of dollars a week just by devoting a couple of hours each day on paid surveys. I

It's no surprise that some people actually think this way especially when there are ads all over the Internet claiming that people can make $50-$75 an hour taking paid surveys.

When people fail to make this huge money with the paid surveys, they give up. I have never seen anyone making more than a few dollars a month by taking paid surveys. In case you are looking forward to making money online for a decent living, paid surveys are not meant for you.

People are impatient:

I used to take surveys when I started online. One thing I learned as a Survey taker was that you must have the patience.  If you don't have enough patience, you will start doubting the opportunity and give up before reaping any rewards.

You will have to keep the patience while answering lengthy surveys, earning the credits for the surveys taken and waiting for your payment to arrive in your account. This is a very slow process and you may opt to just give up even before earning your first dollar.

 I am not saying that by keeping the patience, you will become a millionaire by taking surveys. That is never going to be the case.

Is One Survey Panel Sufficient?

If you feel that you can sign up with one or two survey sites and start making the good money, You are on the wrong track. Most of the experienced paid surveyors are making money as they have joined many survey programs.

People who make $100+ a month from taking surveys do not restrict themselves to one or two survey sites.

If you don't sign up for may survey platforms, you may not get enough survey invitations and won's be able to make reasonable money and ultimately give up.

If you are really serious about making money by taking online surveys, you must join more than 20 survey site to start with. This is just a rough estimate. if you can spend more time and money, you may join more survey sites.

After joining these sites and having seen the results, you may leave the poor performing sites and join a few more sites in hopes that you find more good performing sites to add to your list.

Come and Leave:

You might have decided to make money from the comfort of your home like many other people working online. Then you would start researching for the survey site after seeing some advertisement. After researching in-depth, you might plan to join the opportunity and then find a very lengthy sign-up form.

Most of the people give up after seeing a long registration process as they think it is too much work for very little money.

Some of you may even take a survey and earn a few bucks after consuming long hours and then give up as the money earned per survey is very Low.

There are thousands of people giving up before they actually get paid for taking the survey due to very less amount being paid.

If you are a bit more optimistic and actually try it out for a month, you may be able to earn some extra cash each month and see the benefits that come with taking paid surveys.

Not a resident of US, Canada, Australia, or the UK:

In case you do not live in the US, Canada, Australia, or the UK,  You should not expect to make much by taking surveys.

You may not like it but this is true.

People from countries other than the named above may try to take this opportunity to make money and join paid survey sites only to find that there are not many survey companies which allow them to participate.

Even after paying the membership fee for joining a paid survey company, you may not get many invitations for taking the surveys and even if you are lucky to get some invitation, you may not qualify due to strict norms.

It really is very difficult for people living in non-English speaking countries to make money by taking surveys, if not impossible. There are very high chances that you may fell for a paid survey Scam in case you reside in a non-English speaking Country.

It's unfortunate that people fall for these scams and miss out on the opportunity to earn legitimate money online.

Bottom Line: 

Not All paid survey companies are scam but it is very difficult to make money online by taking Surveys.

There are legitimate companies like Swagbucks and Survey Junkie for paid surveys but the income is very less as compared to the efforts.

At the end of the day, You may not be satisfied with the results and may give up.

In case you want to establish your online business and live a comfortable life, I advise you to start Affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing will not make you rich overnight but you would start making PAssive Income which would keep on growing with time.

After initial hard work of few months, you may be able to make 6 figure income by just working 2 to 3 hours a day.
