Have you ever been asked by a company to complete a survey for them after they have provided a service to you? Organizations, corporations and even small companies take survey results very seriously and spend a lot of money having surveys taken. Many of us are perfectly willing to take time to answer a survey for the promise of a Whopper from Burger King or a Big Mac from McDonald's. Did you stop to think that those same answers you supply for peanuts could have turned into extra income at home?
Online market research studies have grown tremendously over the past decade. One of the easiest ways to earn extra income at home is by participating in online market research surveys. There are two simple keys to success with online surveys; the first is truth and the second volume.
To succeed and make a profit you will want to register with as many online survey and marketing research companies as you can locate. You want to register with all these companies for one simple reason; volume. The more companies that register your with, the more survey invitations you will receive.
When you visit the first online marketing survey registration page for a company, answer all the questions on the registration form fully and truthfully. You want the marketing company to send you as many survey invitations as they can. The marketing research companies send surveys to those that have registered with them, based on specific criteria. They need the most accurate and complete information about you. The more accurate and complete the information, the more surveys the company is able to send you. Volume!
Once you have registered with the first company, it is normal for you to need to confirm the registration. Be sure to follow the instructions from each company for the confirmation process. Usually with online marketing research companies an email confirmation link is sent to you. You need to be checking your email inbox as soon as you have completed the registration and process the confirmation as soon as it is received. If you do not see your confirmation email coming in, check your junk folder, depending on your email spam settings it may have been sent there. If it was sent to spam you may need to white list the email address so that future emails do not end up in the junk folder. If you do not find and confirm the registration, the marketing research company will not be able to send you any surveys to take.
What do you do next? Repeat, repeat, repeat. Register with as many online research companies as you can find. The more online marketing research companies that you get registered with the more survey opportunities are likely to arrive in your email inbox.
When survey invitations start to roll in, choose and complete the offers that look the most interesting and have the most profit potential for you. You decide which surveys you can make time to take. If you can take all, super. If not, do not worry. You are under no obligation to complete any survey you do not have time for or are uncomfortable with.
Just because a survey arrives does not mean you will be allowed to take it. There are no guarantees here. Before you are allowed to take an online survey it is normal for a series of pre-survey questions to be asked to determine if you are the right fit for the market research study. To be truthful, there is a better than even chance that you will be screened out of the survey. Expect it to happen a lot and do not take it personally. The companies are looking for a very specific type of person to take a paid survey. Do not expect to be paid for your pre-survey answers although some research companies do have some incentive programs for your attempt.
Some Tips to Help You Succeed:
• Get a generic email address. Gmail, Hotmail, iCloud, and AIM are a few free providers.
• Dedicate that email address to surveys. Once you get started you will receive a lot of email into that inbox.
• Keep your personal email traffic on another email address.
• Do not give your Social Security number to a survey company. They do not need it.
• Sign up with multiple survey companies.
• Do not get frustrated with being screened out, it is just part of the survey process and happens to everyone.
