There are quite a few websites on the internet that make it seem easy to earn money browsing the web. Are they right? You are going to find out what the real deal is behind such claims in this article.
Online Survey Reviews (Do They Actually Make Money?)
I'm biased - I hate online surveys. After reviewing hundreds of them, there's plenty of reasons to hate them.
Most of all, I dislike them because they are a waste of time and unsatisfying. You can spend 30 minutes to an hour trying to fill the stupid thing out and then it'll disqualify you at the end.
Another annoying thing is that they rarely reward you actual money. They'll give you "points" that you can trade in for cash later (making it hard to track your earnings in dollars), or they just give you gift cards.
That being said, people love doing surveys, so here's the list and what happened when I signed up or tested these websites. Yes, some people do make money doing surveys, but they tend to be the people that have plenty of spare time and gamify their surveys so it's not so freakin' boring.
This site was a challenge right from the start with signing up, and many people have found that getting money from the site is like pulling teeth. Between that and having to wait for surveys to actually do – American Consumer Opinion is one of the worst quality survey sites I have used. Like other survey sites, this simply isn’t a good approach for making money and ends up taking a lot of time for little reward.
Even the very best survey sites are largely ineffective for long-term profits, and Panda Research is far from the best. Instead, it is a site that will leave users open to a large amount of spam, and most offers end up costing money – making for an expensive approach to earning money. Additionally, complaints and reviews suggest that getting any money from the site is very difficult even if you follow all of their instructions and criteria to the letter.
Filling out my profile for Opinion Outpost was the most painful experience of my week. The mind numbing activity of answering questions about what type of TV I was and what brand of soda I drink is not worth my time.
I’d rather be putting the same time and energy into building an affiliate website, which pays a whole lots more than the pennies you earn doing surveys.
Not only are you making something like $2-$3 per hour doing this, but you are also putting your personal information at risk. InboxDollars is a legit company that does pay real money, but the hassle and time spent with this type of ‘work’ is not worth the reward.
