When I started taking paid surveys I felt like I was all alone. I made some mistakes along the way and I wished there was someone to warn me of what to look out for back then. But what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger right? In my case it definitely made me much smarter.
I have learned many tips and tricks along the way while taking paid surveys so to make it an easier experience and generate more revenues on a per hour basis. You don’t have to make the same mistakes I did. You can learn from mine and hopefully do better than I did when I was first starting out. You can read all about these tips on my website here.
One of the single biggest tips I can give you before you start taking paid surveys is to create a separate email account and strictly use that email ID to register with the survey companies. In fact, many successful paid survey takers have multiple email accounts for a reason I will discuss in a future post (you can keep passwords the same for simplicity purposes).
You want to keep paid survey emails separate from your personal email account. Once you start signing up with more paid survey companies you will be bombarded by email (which is not necessarily a bad problem considering the emails will make you money). However, you want to keep the clutter out of your personal inbox.
To receive enough offers to make taking paid surveys worth your time, you must sign up for at least 3-5 solid companies. This will ensure you are getting a steady flow of emails offering you various kinds of paid surveys.
If everyone just followed this simple advice, there wouldn’t be any more need for paid survey takers. Unfortunately not everyone does and this leaves a lot of demand for more survey takers.
Many people also lose focus and stop taking paid surveys. What they don’t realize is that the reason they are not getting the high paying surveys is because survey companies take time to build trust in you. The single biggest difference between getting paid $5 for a survey versus $50 is how long you have been taking surveys for the company.
Once you earn your stripes, you will be able to pick and choose the highest paying ones and simply ignore emails that offer low dollars. But it does take time to get to this level. That said, it is very simple if you stick to it. Many simply don’t.
The key is to gradually sign up for survey companies overtime and consistently participate in them without getting too overwhelmed.
Some folks are happy making $300-500 a month taking paid surveys, while others strive for more. Regardless of which category you fit in, you have the opportunity to do both. If you are content with the earlier scenario, then stick to the top few survey companies and stick with them.
However, if you fit the later category and want to turn survey taking into more than just a few hundred bucks of pocket money, I recommend you read about how to make your own website like I did so that you can exponentially increase your earnings and focus on building a long term residual cash flow by recruiting other survey takers.
In this series of articles I discuss how to market your website so that masses of web surfers who are interested in taking paid surveys automatically come to you and you don’t have to spend time finding them. These are targeted visitors that specifically find you when they type in certain search terms in Google.
The path is very simple and rewarding, but not easy by any means. Nothing worthwhile is right? The best part is that if you are fully committed, the journey is a ton of fun all along the way.
