You may not have heard about doing surveys for cash or even know what this means or involves. Paid surveys work where you complete surveys on products, by giving your views on subjects or answering questions about your lifestyle. In return the survey companies pay you for your time. It is a simple no cost ways to start earning some money from home.
Here at Typing Jobs From Home we have been advocating survey and opinion work as a way to supplement your income without actually having to go out to work. This type of work has a couple of things going for it. Firstly it costs you nothing, many home typing jobs often require you to pay some sort of fee up front, and this type of work doesn't. Secondly it is very flexible in the hours that you work. There are no fixed hours which mean that you can work the hours that you want or when you are available. It means that if one day you have no time to work then that will not be a problem, you just don't have to complete any surveys. Lastly it is quite easy to do, you do not need any special skills to do this type of work.
You may have heard the saying, if it sounds too good to be true it probably isn't. This is something that you need to pay attention to when looking for typing work online. Companies often make over exaggerated or false claims about the work you will be doing and how much you will be earning. So what are the down sides of doing survey work online? Firstly it is pretty boring (unless you like that sort of thing) and repetitive which is why I only recommend it as a way to get started and get some money coming in. Secondly the pay is not that great unless you do a lot of hours. The average pay rate is about £1 per survey completed and it takes about 10 to 20 minutes to complete a survey. If you are fast on a computer you will obviously earn more.
As with any type of home based work there are some companies that are better than others, this is where we can help by recommending the ones that perform best and by giving tips and advice on how to get the most out of paid survey work. There are a couple of survey companies that are recommended at the moment that you can get started with.
Once you have signed up you will be emailed every time a suitable survey becomes available. So say that you indicated in your preference profile that you used hair products. If a company interested in knowing about what types of products people used and how often then the survey site would forward you that survey to complete. Once completed you will be credited for completing that survey.
As mentioned earlier the average is about £1 per survey so it will depend on the number of surveys that you actually complete. Some pay more and some pay less, for example getting asked for your opinion on insurance is going to pay more for one asking about fish fingers.
