Unfortunately, it just doesn't pay very well.
So, if you need to find ways you can earn some income at home, taking surveys online can be one way to earn extra money each month, while still making your home a priority.
Here is how to find legitimate companies and get started: 1.
Find Survey Companies.
The easiest way to find them is to search online for a free survey company list.
There are websites with lists and databases of hundreds of survey companies to sign up for.
Not all of them will be for you, but there are a lot of opportunities out there.
Just make sure you add that word "free" into the search engine though, because there are a number of people trying to charge for the very same information that you can find a no cost.
Register for as many companies as you can.
Surveys are inconsistent.
You may get a ton one month from Company A, and none from B,C &D, then the next month none from Company A a a lot from the others.
You never know.
Also, keep an open mind when it comes to registering.
Some companies that say they only offer sweepstakes entries as compensation still send out occasional great paying surveys, free products to test and keep, and manage focus groups (the big money).
You should register for as many individual survey panels as you can regardless of compensation, and then decide whether or not the survey is worth your while after you have received the survey invitation in your email.
Confirm your Registrations and Finish Your Personal Account Profiles.
After the initial registration you need to confirm that you signed up by responding to the email the company sends you.
You will not start receiving surveys until you complete this step.
You will also need to complete your personal profile with each company.
Sometimes these are mini-surveys, or just one big long list of questions to learn more about you and find out which demographic group you fit into.
This is the most boring part, but it is necessary so they can pre-screen the surveys they send you - making sure you have the best odds for qualifying for the survey and completing it so you will get paid.
That's all there is to it.
Once you have done this you will start getting surveys in your email inbox and you can start earning money.
The only thing I have left to suggest is that you check your email regularly, because the better paying surveys often fill their quotas quickly (and you don't want to miss out on those).
Respond quickly, answer honestly and responsibly, and you may find yourself earning hundred a month in what little spare time you have.
