Get Paid to Fill Out Surveys - For Supplemental Income

Want to make some extra money, just using your computer and your Internet connection?
Consider getting paid to fill out surveys. No-no. It's not an envelope-addressing thing or other work-at-home type of come-on. It's for real.
Literally tens of thousands of big companies have no direct contact with their ultimate customers. The next time you are in a supermarket, look around you. You will see 4,000 to 8,000 products, all made or packed by some company somewhere, and all being sold, not by the maker or packer but by the supermarket chain!
All these producers and packers are dying to know just what their target consumers think, what they want, what they like and don't like. Not being there at the time of sale, they use market researcher to find out. The market researchers use consumer opinion surveys, focus groups and product testing to get the answers they need.
Because of the fast communication turnaround and low cost of the Internet, more and more consumer opinion surveys are being made online. To compensate the people filling out the survey questionnaires (and to make sure there are enough volunteers for this!) they pay in cash for each survey taken or online focus group participation.
So there are thousands of online surveys being made every week, and many thousands of survey participants are receiving checks in the mail for their participation!
Want in? All you need is a computer and an Internet connection to get paid to fill out surveys. If you can send and receive e-mails, you have all the technical skills required.
To participate you will need to get your name and demographic info registered with the good survey makers. There are over 750 survey makers listed in the U.S. alone; you only want to sign up with the good ones. The good ones pay in cash or points that can be redeemed in cash, and they respect your privacy.
The bad ones try to sell you stuff and spam you half to death. They just waste your time. So you need a guide company that maintains a list of who's who amongst survey makers, to steer you around the bad ones and to the good ones.
There are probably more than 200 guide companies. The good guide company you want to deal with will be sizable, growing and will have been around a while. Size and experience indicates that they are doing something right!
Look for a company with a 60-90 day money-back guarantee, backed up by a bank or financial company such as PayPal or ClickBank. The guarantee shows that the company stands behind its service. The backing shows that they are financially solvent and respected.
The single most important thing to look for is a low refund rate. The refund rate is the percentage of clients that leave and demand their money back. Low refund rate means happy clients; high refund rate means many unhappy clients. Look for a refund rate in the ideal range of 3.0 to 5.0%. Avoid any with refund rates as high as 10%.
Once you pick your guide company and sign up, they will give you some instructions and a copy of their preferred survey makers list. It is very important to sign up with all of these survey makers individually and do it fast.
The applications to survey makers are crucial because for these survey companies to send you surveys to fill out they must first have your name and demographic info on file. They get this info from your application. No application means no info means they can't send you surveys to fill out.
Be diligent in your pursuit of this income. Open a separate e-mail address for surveys and use it in your applications. Check your e-mail inbox daily. Respond to all correspondence promptly. When you get invitations for surveys, accept them, and take the survey. Fill out all the blanks. Give your honest opinions. Respond well and you will get more surveys.
Your checks will come in the mail. Exactly how much you make will depend on your diligence and your demographics. Most experienced survey takers report incomes of $200 to $600 per month. With good demographics and diligence some go over $1,000 a month.
