Becoming an online panelist is one of the best ways to work from home and earn some extra cash from your computer. It won’t wake you rich, but it is a good side income and can earn you some extra cash for bills, toys, dinners or whatever you desire.
How Survey Sites Work
- Upon registration these survey sites will send surveys invitations via email along with the respective reward amount.
- You then respond and complete the questionnaire.
- Qualification is usually determined with the first few questions (based on specific demographics that their looking for) and if you qualify and complete the survey you will be credited with the respective award.
- Most surveys take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes, depending a lot on the individual who takes them.
- Most pay cash dollars, some pay points which you can accrue over time and exchange for cash or prizes or gift cards. When you visit these sites you can view a rewards page that highlights their specific award program. Some of these companies also conduct surveys via telephone, cell phone texting and in-person focus groups that pay even more.
Top Work from Home Survey Sites
Vindale Research has been around for a long time and has potential to make some great extra money. This site’s primary focus is the evaluation of products and services. Basically you sign up for trials of particular services and products. For instance, they had an online movie rental survey, where you sign up for blockbuster.com for $9.99 for the first month (you may cancel anytime once that month ends) then you fill out a short survey about the sign up process experience. Vindale in return reimburses you for any costs associated with sign up as well as extra money for your time.
Vindale always pays as specified and they are completetly honest and I get to try out a lot of cool things for free. In the end the total that I got paid for Blockbuster from Vindale Research was $20 (9.99 for the trial fees I paid and the rest for my time) and I got a free month of movies. I have since done many evaluations and I steadily make about $50 (via Paypal or check by mail) every two weeks with my work from home with Vindale.
