How does paid survey programs work?
How survey programs work is companies are looking for opinions on their products or different topics and will pay you for your time. There will be times when you'll not qualify for a survey and that's because they're looking for a certain demographic. Recently, I've qualified for the majority of surveys I've completed. Also I've done product testing and got to keep the products that I've tested. Currently I'm testing several different types of products from different Name Brand Companies. These companies wants my thoughts on their products so if they needed to make any type of improvements then they can do so. Companies use survey panels to recruit people to test their products to avoid putting out a product that won't sale.
Is your information safe?
People worry about if their information is safe when completing surveys. That answer is yes. Survey companies keeps your information confidential and will never sale it. Basic personal information they want from you is your age, sex, how many people in your household, household income, children. The reason why they ask this is to put you in a certain group. Sometimes they will ask for your address if they need to send you a product to test.
How much does surveys pay?
Survey programs can pay you anywhere from $1 to $100 or more. My biggest survey I've done so far was for $150 in which I'd recorded all the coffee drinks I had for 4 weeks. If you're looking to make more money, some survey panels offers paid focus groups in which you're in a setting with other panelist and a administrator discussing about new products or a topic. Focus groups last longer than the average survey so that's the reason why they pay more.
So remember to never pay for a survey list, it's just middlemen trying to steal your money. But be careful with any money making opportunities online because there are so many scams going on right now.
If you're interested in making money with online survey programs, I'd listed a list of legitimate companies on my work from home page.
