Paid online surveys are very popular today because marketers can gather consumer opinions quickly and inexpensively. Incentivizing web attendees is much cheaper and more efficient than conducting in-person, phone, or mail surveys. It explains why a lot of surveys are done online… But are they the best survey option out there?
To answer this question, it is important to emphasize that paid surveys are not limited to online surveys!
Offline market research is still very important and in many cases, according to the purpose of the survey, the opinions of the participants still have to be collected in a real place (and not on the Internet). In addition, offline surveys are an excellent opportunity for survey takers. In fact, offline surveys can yield a lot more than online surveys because they require more participation. People who take surveys seriously can make good money from these surveys.
The main types of surveys to consider to make money are:
* online surveys: You give your opinion on the Internet. You can get as much as $75 for a very specialized online survey, but making that kind of money is rare. The average payout for surveys conducted online is $5. You can also win cash prizes.
* focus groups: You are taking part in an interview conducted with a small number of people. These discussions are lively and interesting. You pay best. You can get $20 to $250 per survey. The average payout is $70 for a 90 minute session.
* Shopping Surveys: You get paid to shop at the mall or eat at restaurants! All you have to do is fill out a questionnaire about your customer experience. It’s a great opportunity for people living in large or medium-sized cities in the United States. You can get paid $10 to $50 for most stores. Video mystery shopping (you hold an invisible video device that records what you’re doing) can fetch up to $100 per deal! Over 700,000 Americans currently work as mystery shoppers.
* test polls: You test a new product or service and give your opinion on it. It may take more than one session to complete the survey. The payout ranges from $25 to $500 depending on how long it takes to complete.
In order to make as much money as possible, it is advisable to combine all types of surveys: online surveys, focus groups, mystery shopping and test surveys. Taking online surveys is fine, but if you only take online surveys, you’re missing out on some of the best opportunities to make money! In our experience, top performers devote at least 50% of their time to mystery shopping and focus groups because that’s where they make the most money. Follow their lead to maximize your profits!
