First of all, can you make money taking online surveys? There are a lot of survey companies out there that are free and give cash payouts, along with free products that you review. Obviously some are scams and even charge you money up front to register. Is there a way you can earn money with online surveys or is it even worth the trouble?
Are there Legitimate Survey Companies Out There?
You can spend a lot of time looking for survey companies, and even more time looking for ones that pay cash instead of just product. Companies such as paidsurveysandmore.net and paid-surveys-at-home.com are just a few examples of ones that probably should be avoided at all costs, unless you want a lot of junk mail to name just one benefit.
Instant Payday Network
Here is a good example of, what appears to be, and honest reviewer with some advice as to how you can make money, not just samples of products you review. He makes some good points and gives some example of some other legitimate survey companies such as mysurvey.com, SurveySavvy, and something called Acop. His featured program is Instant payday network, in which you become a paid advertiser for Fortune 500 companies. According to Keith, it only takes a few minutes to sign up and get started and on your way to earning anywhere from $30-50. per week….
Are you kidding? Did I hear that right: $30-50. per week?
What these companies are using is something called Incentivized CPA (cost per action) offers. These are incentivized actions that you can do online, things such as filling out forms and creating leads for companies.
- Step 1) Complete 1 CPA offer for express.mycashfreebies.com
- Step 2) Complete 2 CPA offers for double.mycashfreebies.com
- Step 3) Refer others who sign up to Instant Payday Network.
- Step 4) Join Empower Network (optional)
What’s this last step? Empower Network turns out to be another program that has lots of quick cash type promises, but the fact that this leads into a funnel for further sales gimmicks should be a very evident warning flag.
Why Waste Your Time?
This seems to be the most important issue because if you have to wade through and sort out legitimate survey companies and then try to earn money without getting scammed in the meantime, there are probably better ways to earn money. I’m not a big fab of this type of program but perhaps it works for some.
Why not create your own business by creating something of value for people who are genuinely interested in what you have to say and offer? With all of the online resources available, creating something of value has never been easier.
