How to Find Legitimate Paid Surveys
While there are a lot of honest, reputable paid survey websites, it is important for you to know how to find a legitimate paid survey website. So how can you tell the difference?
Legitimate paid survey websites will:
- Post contact information and usually have an about page describing what their company does. Personally, I don’t trust a business that won’t provide a way for me to contact them if I have a question or a problem.
- Not guarantee a specific amount of income. In fact they will have an income disclaimer posted to be sure you understand that the amount of money you earn is dependent on what demographic group you are in and how much time you spend taking surveys
- While there are a lot of reputable survey sites on the web, there are also a lot of not-so-reputable sites. Avoid any survey site that: Not ask for sensitive personal information such as social security number, date of birth, credit card numbers (unless they charge you a fee for using their service), bank account information, etc.
- Sign up for several paid survey websites. This will increase the probability of you getting offered more surveys.
- If you want to take a survey, do it right away. Most companies accept survey takers until they reach the number that they wanted. After that, most won’t accept you.
- Make sure your profile is correct and the data current because it determines whether you qualify to take a survey.
