Thousands of people are now members of survey sites hoping to do online surveys for cash but a large number of those taking part will walk away making nothing or very little – but why? Read on to found out what you could be doing wrong and what could stop you making money from surveys.
Online surveys are a simple way to make money online, simpler than any other opportunity I can think of, but like every opportunity to make money it has to be done correctly. Unfortunately many people fail to realize certain things must be done to be successful with online surveys and thus end up failing.
The first mistake many make is to think that registering with one company will be enough to get them doing online surveys for cash in a lucrative manor, if only it was that simple. Survey providers no matter how big or small a company they are will only send out a few surveys a week and this isn’t going to bring in enough money to be worthwhile.
Make sure then that you join up with plenty of companies and you will soon notice a difference. You can look for these companies yourself but to save the time and effort I’d suggest using a good directory. The number of sites you need to join to be successful varies from person to person but I would simply recommend joining every single one that comes your way. If using a directory a simple way of doing this and making it less time consuming is to work through the list slowly, joining between 5 to 10 companies a day. This will make it less of a chore but still have you joining plenty of companies.
Secondly I recommend you have a little patience. Doing online surveys for cash isn’t a miracle way of making money, it can take a little time both for yourself to register and for the companies to put your details on their system. Also don’t expect the best surveys straight away as many companies like to see some commitment on your behalf before they will even consider sending you good cash paid surveys. All this really requires you to do is take the surveys you are sent, whether they have rewards or not, and you will soon be noted as a committed member and start receiving better surveys.
It still shocks me when I read statements from people saying they gave surveys a try, earned nothing in a fortnight and gave up as this attitude will never get them anywhere in life. Stick with it and give doing online surveys for cash a chance to prove they can make you money and I guarantee you will have no regrets.
