Surveys are a great way to EARN SOME MONEY!

A survey is a group of questions about a subject and usually has multiple choice answers or a scale to indicate level of response. They usually start with some initial screening questions to make sure you are the type of person they are looking for. The incentive is typically relative to the amount of time it should take to complete the survey and is usually between $1 to $5 although I have done some detailed ones that have paid as high as $15.

Surveys can be fun and a good foundation to your earnings plan!

I enjoy taking surveys because I learn about new products that may be coming out as well as things that currently exist but never heard of before.


There are 2 main ways that you can find surveys to take:

      • Survey Sites
      • Survey router on GPT site

Survey sites typically email you invitations to surveys that are available with a link that launches the survey. Many sites list the available surveys in a section on their site and you can start them from right there. Some of the busier sites will deliver additional surveys should you screen out of the one you were invited to. I find it especially appealing to earn from multiple surveys in one session!

GPT typically deliver surveys from a survey router that may be coming from many different companies. Compensation for these surveys are typically lower as the GPT site is keeping part of the compensation as commission. I wait until I have exhausted my direct survey opportunities however a good mode for additional survey opportunities.

The best approach is to sign up for all of them and then go back and fill out the profiles at each site. This should help in the pre-screening process and some sites won't even consider you without the profiles completed.

Now for the fun stuff, let's get signed up to some survey sites so we can start earning some money!
