The beauty about online surveys is that anyone can take them. Well, almost anyone. You will need some basic reading skills. Many sites require you to be 18 years or older. However, there are online surveys that are looking for the teenage demographic, and they will pay 14 years-old and up.
I remember when I was a kid that I’d go to the mall like any teenager would. We’d roam around looking at merchandise, eating fast food, and seeing what other friends showed up that day. There was this research company that would pay us $20 for our time. I thought I had struck gold. My opinion on soda, chips, and all sorts of teen things mattered.
This just goes to show that research depends on certain demographics. The best thing about this is that the college student, stay-at-home mom, and teenager all have a voice that research marketers want to hear.
You can make a few hundred dollars a month if you try. For a teenager or college student, this is enough income to get by. You don’t have to get a job at the local burger joint and beg for time off during homecoming.
For moms, this is the perfect opportunity to make some extra money while the baby sleeps. Sometimes, getting a “real” job nets the same amount of money as online surveys after you subtract the cost of gas and daycare. Anyway, the time you spend with your children is priceless.
To get started taking online surveys, look around and see what people are saying about different survey companies. Sign up with a variety of companies. After that, all you need is a computer and a nice place to sit for a few minutes and take your survey.
Be honest and take your time to thoughtfully answer your questions.
