How Much Money Can be Made With Surveys – Extra Cash vs Living Money

Posted on by

The Internet has allowed more and more people to work from home. Online surveys is one of the ways that people to earn a little extra income by working online in their own time. You may not get rich, but you can make money. In addition to earning a little extra money, you have the freedom to do the surveys when you want and where you want.

Many companies are realizing the benefit of getting feedback and information from consumers through surveys. These companies are willing to pay people to participate in focus groups and will offer rewards and incentives for helping them with their research and surveys. The Internet has made it much easier for people and companies to find each other and engage in meaningful and interesting discussion on a variety of topics.

While you can earn money and get rewards from these online surveys, you need to remember that this is far from a get-rich-quick plan. You won't get rich filling out surveys, but you can earn some quick and easy spending money. This is where the difference between extra cash and living money comes into play. Many people I have talked to that had a bad impression of these online survey sites also misunderstood how much money they could make.

They thought they could make enough each month to make the credit card payments or to take care of the mortgage or car payments. The truth is that online survey programs were never meant to be a replacement for income, but rather a source of supplemental income. I tell these people that if they can readjust their expectations and give it another go they can see how making money from online surveys can help their wallet, even if it doesn't change their lifestyle.

Whenever I hear of a friend or family member who wants to get started with some of the online survey panels that I am a part of, I make sure to talk to them about it so that they understand what it really can and cannot do for them. For people looking for a little extra spending cash, earning money by taking surveys online are a great option.

After doing this for a few years, I have a fairly steady flow of what I call ‘fun cash’ coming in each month. I enjoy taking online surveys because it gives me something I can do in my free time. I answer questions about the things I do, the things I buy, and the things I like. I enjoy sharing my opinion, and I get rewarded for it!
