From all the recent buzz on the Internet, you may know that taking online surveys is a good way to make extra money. Thousands of major corporations will pay you for your opinions on their ideas, new products, advertising, and more. I make substantial cash taking online surveys in my spare time (here is some info on how much money I make taking online surveys.)
But in addition to being lucrative, paid surveys are actually fun. Taking a survey is nothing like a normal job: there is no boss looking over your shoulder telling you exactly how to do something, there is no deadline for completion, and you can take them in your pajamas. Heck, with a laptop you can actually take surveys from bed.
Imagine this, ladies: your friend asks you “Which scarf, the blue or the red one?” You say, “Red.” And she says, “Okay, the flats or the heels?” And you say, “Heels.” And she says, “Wow, thanks. Here is $10.00.” Or guys, how about this: someone says “Hey, which car looks cooler, a Ferarri California or a Porsche 911?” And you tell them your opinion and explain why and they say, “Thanks, here is some cash for your time.” That is how easy it is to do paid surveys.
I get most of my news from online news sites and blogs, and at the end of those articles I often see hundreds of long comments where people have taken quite a lot of time posting their opinions. They, of course, aren’t being paid for these opinions, they just give their opinions because it is sort of fun to share your knowledge and opinion on things. If these people were taking a paid survey, they could spend the same amount of time giving their opinions and then get paid for it.
So that is why I take paid surveys: they are easy, fun, and a good way to make extra money in your spare time. If you haven’t started yet, check out my list of the best paid survey sites.
