Online earnings reports have always generated interest. When first hearing that one could make money online from home, it leads to many questions. Is this true? How on earth is this possible? Wow could I do this too?
Years ago I asked myself these same questions. The search for answers began immediately! It started out with much pain. Wasted hours of work, scams and dead ends. Slowly but surely I would find something that worked. One of the first things that actually paid me was taking online surveys. I will detail what sites and how much I’ve actually made a little later on in the post.
Many of the flashiest sites out there, promising huge payouts with minimal effort, well, they are usually too good to be true. This was a painful lesson to learn and almost made me quit trying to take surveys for money online. But like with anything else online, applying the 25/75 rule helped to turn it around and make it successful for me.
What is the 25/75 rule? Spend 25% of your online time learning all about your niche, goal, skill, approach you want to use to make money online. Then spend 75% of your time implementing and perfecting what you’ve learned. If you follow this formula, results will come and continually get better.
So following this rule I started coming across great resources, like one site called Survey Police. To my delight, I found this was a great review site. Anyone who has joined and used a paid survey site can leave a review and tell us all how their experience went. Most of the big survey sites are represented here, along with details of how each site operates.
Armed with this new information, any time I came across a new site that I might join I opened up the Survey Police review and checked out what people had to say, good or bad. I dodged a few stinkers that way. Over time and with other tricks and tips that got discovered, I found that it was possible to male a few hundred dollars a month in my spare time online.
Seeing the money come in, still a trickle, led to more time spent and a refocus on how much was being made per hour. At one point a couple of years ago I calculated that I was able to make up to $12 an hour just from taking surveys. I had developed a legitimate pipeline for making decent money on the side from home with nothing more than a laptop or phone.
How much have I made? Well I have used many sites over the years. Some have gone out of business, some changed their format, some are as strong as ever. I have included earnings for five sites in this post though I have earned from many more. All of the included sites have direct referral programs. That means, if I refer you to join the site and you make money on the site, I earn a commission. So I only want to tell you about sites that you will earn money using. Otherwise what a waste of time this would be.
Here is the earnings report as of the published date of this post.
Five free sites that have paid me over $2000.
InstaGC – I have earned $811.89 from this site.
PaidViewpoint – I have earned $446.71 from this site.
Branded Surveys – I have earned $439.29 from this site.
Fusion Cash – I have earned $302.40 from this site.(Fusion Cash is currently offering a $5 bonus just to register)
Swagbucks – I have made $287.29 from this site.
Keep in mind that I am still using all these sites and the totals continue to increase daily. If you want to make some extra money from using these free survey sites, click their names above to register and get started. This will never cost you anything, no credit card number, no fees, no paid upgrades, ever.
Are there any weaknesses to this tactic of using paid survey sites to make some extra dough in your spare time? sure. Some say they dont get paid enough to be worth their time. Some say they get disqualified often from surveys after answering many questions. Some say that the site will never actually pay you, it’s just a number somewhere on an anonymous website.
While I have found all these complaints to be perfectly true, I have also found that the ‘bad’ sites give the good ones a terrible reputation. I too felt this way about survey sites when I was chasing the shiny objects and had not learned how to successfully navigate these waters.
There are many advantages to taking surveys on your computer or phone to earn some side income. You get to do it when you want. Whether it’s 6AM before anyone else has gotten out of bed on a Saturday, or 8PM on a Tuesday night after we put the kids to bed, or during a Netflix binge of Tidying Up or Property Hunters I can make some money with a few easy clicks.
