If you have a computer and like giving your opinion, you might want to try doing online surveys from home to make a little extra cash while trying new products. There are hundreds of companies that enlist research panels of average consumers to complete surveys online.

You can’t expect to earn a full salary from taking online surveys, but it is possible to earn $500 to $1,000 a month in cash and free products if you take several short surveys. The key is knowing where to sign up.  Well don’t you worry, I’ve done all the work for you.

When you join a survey site, you provide your personal and demographic information, which credible survey sites will not disclose to any other party. That information is used to select participants for surveys on specific products and services. When you are selected as a panel member, you will receive an e-mail inviting you to take a short screening survey to determine if you fit the profile for that particular survey. If you qualify, you will be asked to take a longer online survey in exchange for some sort of compensation.

Compensation varies by company and by survey. You may receive a few dollars, or be sent free products in exchange for trying them and providing feedback about them.  I have taken hundreds of surveys myself and am generating anywhere between $400 and $1,700 a month, using a very easy to follow strategy.  If you want to make this type of money, you need to be efficient.  Fill out the form below, to get started with your first $5 survey!
