As a personal finance adviser, I always tell people to take advantage of any opportunity that they come across. One of the best ways for stay at home moms to contribute to their income is earning money online. Paid surveys offer a simple and free way for moms to make a few extra bucks.
All you need to do is register with a few legit paid survey sites like Swagbucks (here is a great review of Swagbucks.com) and you can start making extra cash right away.
There are a few things that make getting paid to take online surveys great.
- Anyone can take surveys even a stay at home mom.
- Who else is going to pay you for your opinion!
- As a mom personally it is very important to me to have a say in products and services that I use for my kids, and market research studies allow me to do do just that, plus I get paid for it.
- A free way to earn extra cash.
- You can work whenever and wherever you desire.
So, how does paid survey taking work?
It is really simple. You basically find a list of legit paid survey site and register with them for free. Then you fill out your profile so they can match you with available surveys.
Then whenever there are surveys that are match to your profile, you get notified by email. You take the survey and in a few days or weeks (depending on the site) you get paid by PayPal, Check or you get gift cards or other prizes. It really can’t get any easier than that.
How much can you get paid to take online surveys?
Don’t expect to get rich as a survey taker. The best you can hope for is a few hundred dollars a month which I would think nowadays is a lot of money and can help pay a few bills. On average, a survey that takes 15 minutes to complete will pay out around $3.
Of course, there are surveys that pay less or more. It all depends on the length of the survey and the market research firm who is conducting the survey.
So, if you are thinking about ways to supplement your family’s income, give online surveys a try. But beware that there are scams out there as well. So make sure you do your due diligence when choosing a survey site to work with.
