Body: A paid survey is a form of research conducted by a market research firm in order to gather information about a specific product or information. Market research companies pay everyday people small sums of money for their participation in a paid survey.Lately several websites have been popping claiming to pay up to $250 an hour for each paid survey. Advertisements like this mislead people into believing that paid surveys are a way to get rich. The truth is, you can make good money taking paid surveys online. But you will only be paid an average of about $5 per paid survey.Below are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the paid survey opportunity.Are Paid Survey Sites Scams? Yes and no. There are several paid survey sites that scam people into paying a fee to join their paid survey site. For the most part, these are a waste of money. Those are the sites that claim you can make hundreds for taking a paid survey. Those types of paid survey sites do not actually send paid surveys. They are just a list of companies you can join that do offer paid surveys.But there are actually hundreds of sites that will pay you to participate in a paid survey. There are also several free paid survey directories that give you the same information as a paid membership site. There is no good reason to join a paid membership site to take paid surveys online.Which company sends the most paid surveys That is hard to answer. When you join a paid survey site you will usually be asked to provide some personal information about yourself. They may ask you questions about your age, race, income, marital status, etc. This is so that when a company wants to survey a particular group of people, for example women between the age of 18 and 24 who own a pet, the paid survey company can send the survey out to that group. So there is really no way of knowing who will be needed most. There are some major companies that seem to partner with alot of market research companies actually do send alot more paid survey opportunities than others. From my personal experience I would have to say that the following companies send the most surveys in general:NFO My Survey Global Test MarketGoZing SurveysOpinion OutpostSurvey SavvySurvey SpotTest SpinECN ResearchAmerican Consumer OpinionHow can I tell the difference between a legit paid survey and a paid survey scam If a paid survey offers to pay you hundreds of dollars per paid survey that is a good indication that it is a scam. Also if you see something like "Take this paid survey a get a free laptop" you can be pretty sure this is a scam. A real paid survey will not try to get you to buy anything or sign up for any other offers. A legitimate paid survey will usually tell you the amount it is paying and the time it should take to complete the survey. Alot of paid survey companies use a "points" system. In a system like this you are paid a certain amount of points for each paid survey you complete. When

you get to certain amount of points you can redeem them for a check. NFO My Survey and Global Test Market use this method of payment. If a paid survey application asks you to join other companies or asks if you would like to receive information from other advertisers you can usually be sure that is a scam also.There is a list of several legitimate paid survey sites listed in the resource box at the end of this article. Who is eligible to take paid surveys Just about anyone. As long as you are over 13 years old. Some paid survey companies will only accept people from certain countries. Others paid survey companies have world wide members. This article was written by Chris Price.
