Paid Surveys Advice
- First, we highly recommend you join
several of the free paid survey or rewarded surveys
on our free
paid surveys page. These are free to join and are
- You'll want to have a separate
email account as you will get a LOT of new email. And,
the chances are high that even some of the good companies
will tend to send so much unwarranted email that it
could be considered SPAM.
Note: you also will not receive most surveys if you
use a spam filter, so you'll need to turn OFF your spam
filter --which means you'll get even more normal spam
- Sign up with one of the more
reputable paid survey database agencies.
See our review of each type below:
- First off... You might choose
to pay for "Paid Survey Database services",
but NEVER PAY to take a Paid Survey or be on their
- Visit each Paid Survey Database
Services site and read about how they work
- If they are free, be wary.
They will most likely SPAM you or are just out to
get referral commissions. Those paid survey services
are no good because they will send you to the highest
bidder without considering your best interests (i.e.
the paid survey company may sell your email, SPAM,
or worse). It's best to move on
- Most paid surveys companies offer a 90-day
money back guarantee. This is good because
it sometimes takes up to 60-90 days to start getting
the good surveys and to start seeing some of your
free stuff come in. Both of our recommended companies
offer a full, 90-day guarantee as well. ;)
- Consider the survey companies
that have higher-quality websites and charge a one-time
fee. Our favorites --which we use-- are SurveyScout
Both SurveyScout and PaidSurveys have a comprehensive
database, easy-to-use interface, and a good tutorial
for getting started quickly. Both also offer special
bonuses for new signups! [Important
Note about Bonuses]
Fresh Leads - does the service update their database
with new leads? This is good for when you've completed
signing up for all current surveys
Easy-to-use - do they have an intuitive and understandable
Categories - are they divided in to easy to follow categories?
For instance, SurveyScout lists all surveys in a large
list. PaidSurveys lists by offering type or Region (i.e.
international, US-only, etc)
Unique Leads - do they have new and unique leads or
do they just have the same old surveys listed on other
sites? This is important because many services recommend
"trash" surveys. SurveyScout and PaidSurveys
BOTH have many different, quality leads which makes
it worthwhile to join both programs --for the serious
"survey guru" ;)
Quality - do they recommend only the highest quality
survey companies? Or, do they just recommend all the
companies they can find, the companies that pay the
biggest referral (will probably SPAM you), etc...
# Listed - Approximate number of survey companies listed
in their site
Recommend - we have signed up for half a dozen services
and we recommend SurveyScout and PaidSurveys over the
rest --by far!
- Once you've chosen a Paid Survey
service, you need to carefully read each actual Paid
Survey you sign up for. Sometimes they will auto-fill
a checkbox that allows them to sell your email. Be
sure to uncheck it!
Our recommendation? Visit a couple
of the paid survey services and then determine the best
one (or two) to go with. Be sure to bookmark
our site so that you can easily come back and check
out other mvalue reviews!
Still not sure?
Want to see what the surveys are like first? Be sure to
sign up with a few of the Highest Quality Paid Surveys
programs around. These are VERY reputable organiziations
and educational institutions that want your input and
reward you for it!
are definately worth a look. We highlight NFO,
Vanderbilt, etc. Visit our Free
Paid Surveys page to sign up with these programs at
no cost whatsoever!
Good luck and we hope you work
at home and enjoy these FUN Surveys!!
