Tips for making sure you get as many surveys sent to you as possible

Posted on by

If you want to know how I have been successful making money with online paid surveys, then this is your lucky day. I am going to share with you a few of the tips that have served me well during the last few years.

Fill out your profile. This is the most important thing you can do. When you first sign up for a survey panel or website you will have to answer a lot of questions about yourself, your family, your hobbies, and your life. These initial questions build your profile and usually will not be counted as a paying survey. But remember:

• It is a very important first step, and worth spending the 20-30 minutes it usually takes for the screening surveys. The site will use your information to filter and search for surveys that you qualify for.

• Remember, you will get invites to surveys based on the answers to your questions so, if you leave large areas of your profile blank, you will miss out on a lot of surveys and a lot of potential earnings. Always be sure to answer every question as completely as you can!

Check for surveys often. Keep an eye open for survey-related email alerts and check the site itself to make sure no survey invitations are getting lost in the junk or spam folders.

• Many sites have a limit for how long surveys are up and many companies need only a certain number of participants for their surveys. The sooner you take action the more likely are you going to be able to take the survey and secure your reward.

• Set up your email folder so all emails from your survey sites go into a special folder, are flagged, or somehow stand out from all the rest of your emails so they are easier to spot. You may want to think about setting up an email account just for your survey work.

Never pay to take surveys. Some companies say they offer free surveys, but then they try to charge you for access to those surveys. Any time you are asked to pay in order to simply access surveys is a red flag!

• Also, you should never be required to pay a portion of your rewards and earning to the survey panel. That is another warning sign that you should look for another panel to sign up with.

Consider the minimum payment amount. Most of the survey sites you will sign up will have a minimum cash amount you have to earn before you can cash out, or they have set reward levels that you have to earn points towards.

• Make sure the amount is fair and workable. If you have to earn $100 before you can cash out it could take you a while before you see any of your money.
