With over 500 “paid survey” companies on the Internet, it’s clear that this can be a business that’s here to stay. A few of the sites provide you with a chance to “get rich quick” while others provide you with an opportunity to earn a few extra dollars in your time participating in panels. Is it possible to make a full time income off of those sites? You sure can – however not by taking surveys. There simply isn’t enough time in each day to earn a viable living from the online survey gig.
So how will you make a real income with your websites?
It’s very simple. You create a “survey portal.” While not easy to setup, once established, it is a way you can generate money and not have to fill in one survey. The set-up fees are minimal, but some computer knowledge is required.
A lot of the online survey companies give you a “referral” fee for directing those who want to earn money by taking surveys to their site. And this really is where the cash is.
The first thing you need to do is buy a domain name. You would want to get one that’s catchy and easy to keep in mind as well as spell Tellhappystar. Once our domain name is secured, you will need to setup a website. It doesn’t have to be elaborate at all, but ought to be attractive to the viewer. And, obviously, you’ll need to have a host. Most host companies charge about $25 a month. You intend to ensure you acquire a number that allows ads. Some hosting sites like Yahoo are very user friendly, but don’t allow advertising.
You’ll need to do a little research into the different survey companies that give you a referral fee. You can sign up for each site and you’ll get a “referral link.” This link is going to be posted in your website in the shape of a “hyperlink.” It is additionally vital to get as much referral links as you can to post in your website. When researching the businesses, ensure that referral payments are created in cash, not points, and that you could receive them by check or through Paypal. If you decide to accept those who offer points, you will have to monitor that site to ensure you money in the points for cash periodically. Don’t work with any site that offers points in trade for sweepstakes entries or prizes; you’re wasting your time.
Some survey sites offer “affiliate” programs. This is where you can actually post an advertising banner in your website. It won’t run you any money, and each time someone actually clicks on the banner and signs up for the survey company, you’ll receive paid.
It is additionally vital to use plenty of visual effects in your website giving the impression that everyone can make a full time income online doing surveys. I’ve seen plenty of survey portals, many of them have photos of large homes, pools, exotic vacation spots and fancy cars. Be careful that you do not use any images susceptible to copyright.
You can even add some “testimonials” to your portal site. You have to be careful not to deliberately mislead people; but an ambiguous statement such as for example “I was working 56 hours a week at a dead end job and now earn over $10,000 monthly – Brenda K.” are not illegal. Because you’re not directly saying that doing surveys is the main reason Brenda K. has become earning $10,000 a month. Brenda K. might have won the lottery and is taking her winnings in a monthly payout.
Along with having several hyperlinks directing visitors to the survey sites for which you will get a referral fee, you can even add other advertising in your website. There are many companies offering pennies on the dollar each time someone clicks on their ad that’s in your website. This is merely another method to generate income for the survey portal site.
The most important thing you will need to learn how to do is market your site. Along with a huge selection of paid online survey sites, there’s also a huge selection of free blogging sites. Sign up for them, make as much “friends” as you can and tout the success of your online business daily in your blog – providing a connect to your website, of course.
While this technique of earning profits might be just this side of the law and takes a little time, a tiny initial cash investment and periodic updates, this really is the only path to produce money in the internet surveys for cash game. PT Barnum knew it; others know it and so you do, too. There’s a sucker born every minute.
