If you’ve been a visitor of Work-At-Home Success for some time, you’ll know that I’ve never been very optimistic about making a living doing surveys. It’s not that you can’t make money, but I don’t believe you can make steady, regular income needed to pay the rent. However, if you’re looking to supplement your income or earn mad money, surveys can be a fun way to do that. Here are a few survey companies you can check out if you’re interested in learning more about surveys.
What are surveys?
Companies need information and feedback on the products and services they sell. They get this feedback by asking consumers questions about the product specifically or their buying habits in general. Surveys are not new, but in the past they came in the mail. Today, you can do surveys online or through mobile apps.
Are surveys a scam?
No, at least not the legitimate ones. Like most everything else related to working at home, there are always a few bad apples trying to take advantage of others. Legitimate survey sites do not charge money. I have found that some sites will charge money to access their database of survey sites. You have to decide for yourself whether this is worth it. In my experience a little research goes a long way. And some of these pay-for-access survey database sites sneak in free-to-try programs that can cost you money.
Here are few survey sites you can try. They are free, BUT I cannot make any guarantees about their programs or your success in working with them. They are offered solely as information you can check out.
Online Survey Companies
Inbox Dollars (surveys and more. $5 sign-up bonus too!)
Phone App Surveys
Note that some of these pay in giftcards.
Some of the above survey sites above may pay an affiliate commission if you register.
