Consumer opinion surveys have been around for years. Today, more and more of these are being conducted on the Internet, on a paid survey basis. And so, many people are asking, "Can I get paid for taking an online survey?" The answer is yes, you certainly can. But you probably do not want to stop with just one! The key (and most of the work) is in the setup. You must get setup right to get paid for taking online surveys. Once you are set up correctly, it becomes an ongoing opportunity and income stream. Paid surveys are made for market research purposes, to find out consumer preferences. The people who actually operate these surveys, the "survey makers", are generally contracted to do so by the market research departments of major corporations. To get paid for taking online surveys, the trick is to get your name and contact info on the lists of the survey makers. There are over 700 survey makers in the U.S. alone; over 3,000 worldwide. Each requires that prospective survey takers (like you and me) file an application with name, contact info and demographic information. So far, so good, O.K.? But the practical problem is that a good bit less than half of the survey makers in the business are worth applying to. The ones you want are serious companies that protect your privacy, guard your info and pay in cash. Many will pay in small pieces of lottery tickets (if at all), and/or will sell your info to sales companies who will proceed to spam you half to death. "Free" sites on the internet will offer to give you lists of survey makers (that are paying them to recruit you), and it is hard to tell who is who out there. You need a guide to get through all this. There are a couple of hundred "paid survey 'guide' companies" that maintain lists of who is good and who is not among survey makers. When you subscribe to their services for a small fee) they will give you a copy of their lists of preferred survey makers. Your challenge will be to choose a good guide company. You want a larger, successful one with a strong 60-90 day money-back guarantee, backed up by a bank or financial company such as PayPal or ClickBank. Look very closely at their refund rate. The refund rate is the percentage of clients that use the guarantee to demand their money back. Low refund rates mean satisfied clients. High refund

rates mean many unsatisfied clients. You want someone with a refund rate in the 3.0% to 6.0% range. Avoid any at 10.0% or higher. When you pick your guide company and get a copy of their list, it will be very important to sign up with as many of their preferred survey makers as possible. These survey makers are the ones who will actually send you the invitations to participate in surveys and then send you your check afterward. The more survey makers you sign up with, the more surveys you will receive and the more money you will make. And so, the more complete answer to your question, "Can I get paid for taking an online survey?", is Yes! And you can do it again and again and make $200 to $600, and up to more than $1,000 a month, from doing so!
