So, you’ve come across an ad or offer promising that you can earn a full-time income working part-time taking simple online surveys…
Is it true or a SCAM?
Well…kind of both.
So, can you really make money online taking surveys? YES. I’ve done it.
Can you really earn a full-time income taking those same surveys? Again, yes…but it’s WAY more difficult and time-consuming that you’d expect.
There are people that have done it and are doing it but I can assure you that when they divide the time they’re actually spending going through these surveys it probably comes out to only nickels and dimes per hour…far less than a minimum wage job.
So, why are these offers so popular?
Honestly, it’s because naive people just coming online really want to believe that it’s possible…
And most people are attracted to the idea of being able to support themselves and live a comfortable life by only working a few hours per day and clicking a few buttons on their computer.
So, that’s why those online survey ads and offers are so popular and have been for so long.
Most of the sites that offer the opportunity to earn money in exchange for your opinion or to take surveys are actually free to join.
But, these survey products simply package up the information of how to navigate these sites and give you a list of some of the more popular ones, and then charge your either a one-time price or a monthly subscription for access to that information.
So, there’s usually a high churn rate or turnover with these kinds of products and offers, because as soon as people realize that they’re not going to make much money at all filling out surveys and that it’s really not worth the time they’re trading to do so, they tend to move on to the next shiny object or get-rich-quick-scheme.
So, if you’re going to do anything in regards to trying to making money with surveys, your best option would be to promote these kinds of offers to others as an affiliate.
You may feel a little shady promoting these kinds of offers all over the Internet now that you know the truth, but that’s where all the money is at.
One the other hand, if you’d like some alternative suggestions for simple and sustainable methods of generating a full-time income online, that aren’t going to cost you a fortune in startup costs and won’t take you a ton of time each day to start getting some traction…
Both of these methods are excellent ways to start creating a solid passive income stream that can eventually replace your full-time job.
