GetPaidSurveys is first and foremost a user-rated directory of the best paid surveys available. The content on GetPaidSurveys is driven by our users and maintained by our site. We provide general overview information about survey providers, and our users supplement this information share their views on those surveys. This approach helps us ensure that GetPaidSurveys.com remains a trusted, unbiased, and useful resource for our users.
How does this work, and how can we remain unbiased? To pay for our technology and website hosting costs, we collect some advertising and affiliate revenue. Since we are the top user-driven survey site, survey partners are eager to be on our site. Further, nearly ALL providers will pay websites small affiliate revenue for quality users that come from any site. At GetPaidSurveys, we simply make sure that survey providers know when we link to them and collect affiliate revenue for those referrals. We DO NOT let this modest revenue stream influence user-feedback, and DO NOT provide favorable treatment for any one site over another. Hence, we are more than happy to list just about any legitimate survey panel. Our users decide how survey panels rank and therefore how they are displayed based on our site.
Why are paid survey panels willing to pay and how do they make money? Paid survey panels conduct market research on behalf of large brands/companies that produce products and sell services. Companies are constantly trying to improve their products or create new ones. Before they launch a new product and an expensive advertising campaign, they need to know what consumers want. Online surveys are an easy way for large companies to speak directly with consumers and collect their opinions. In exchange for these opinions, they often compensate survey takers with cash, prizes, or sweepstakes entries. Some of them even send you sample products and pay you to conduct product evaluations. The money for these payments comes from the large companies who want user research. The large companies then pay the survey panels to recruit qualified survey takers and conduct the research. Finally, the survey panel takes a part of that money to recruit and compensate users like you for your opinions.
Additional thoughts... At GetPaidSurveys we strive to provide our user community with the most recent and accurate information possible. This not only involves encouraging people from sharing their legitimate experiences, but also shielding our users from spammers and “get rich quick” schemes. Typical cash-paying surveys can range from 10 - 45 minutes to complete, and generally reward you $1 - $10 for every survey you complete. Some sites occasionally offer focus groups, which usually last 1 or 2 hours, but generally pay more than $50. Other surveys may give you gift certificates and/or enter you into sweepstakes for cash or prizes. Our blog contains reports by survey takers on the actual amounts they make, but is generally less than $250 per month. This number varies greatly depending on the number of surveys that you complete.
Because of this variability, and the ever-changing needs of product innovators, we cannot guarantee that you will automatically make what our site averages convey. Any earnings examples are only estimates of what we believe you could earn based on what actual survey takers have reported back. Survey takers must accept all risk of making less than you thought and are encouraged to share their experiences back with us.
Where specific figures of income are used, and attributed to a person or business, those persons or businesses have rightfully earned that figure amount. Any claims or representations of financial earnings on this web site are not to be considered as standard or guaranteed earnings. We cannot guarantee that any prior success, or past success, that you or other users might have is an indication of your future success or income earnings.
Financial and income results are based on a wide range of variable factors including: a) how qualified you are for a given survey, b) how quickly you respond to survey requests, c) how much time you are willing to commit to properly completing surveys, d) how willing you are to sign up for as many survey panel opportunities as possible.
So, while we cannot guarantee or imply that surveys will make you rich, we can guarantee that we will do our best to provide you with the best free, legitimate, paid survey opportunities available.
