The trick to making a lot of money taking online surveys is qualifying for a lot of surveys, then cherry-picking the highest paying ones and only taking those. Starting out, however, you may find that you aren’t getting enough high-paying survey offers. So how do you get qualified for more?
Take the demographic questionnaires. On any paid survey site you join, they will have a section full of questionnaires that are basically like surveys themselves. The difference is, they do not ask you questions about a specific product, they ask you questions about yourself. They often take a while to complete, and usually you get paid nothing for taking them. Many people will skip over these questionnaires and go straight to the paying surveys, nut this can be a mistake.
Most surveys are looking for a specific group of people to take them, like “men aged 21-28 who watch at least 8 hours of television per week,” or “women who spend more than $100 each week on clothes.” The survey site does not know that you qualify for these surveys unless you tell them, and the way you tell them is through these questionnaires.
And, not only will you qualify for more surveys, but you will qualify for better paying surveys. Surveys that are targeted to a very small group of users pay much more than surveys that are targeted to a very large group of users. If they are targeting the survey specifically to “men who are aged 30-35 and drive a Honda Minivan,” and you fit the demographic, you will probably be paid handsomely to take that survey as they will have a hard time finding enough people that fit that demographic.
So your first step is to signup at one of these places on my paid survey. And your next step is TAKE THE QUESTIONNAIRES!
