One question that many people have is whether taking online surveys is a legitimate way to earn online. I’m not really sure why this question keeps coming up because people have been taking surveys and making money for years now.

One big difference is you can now do it from the comfort of your own home. You will never get rich taking surveys online; however you can supplement your income and set your own schedule which is a big benefit.

I personally have seen people earn hundreds of dollars taking surveys every month. I’ve also seen copies of checks of people who’ve earned over $1000. Generally these people are doing a combination of taking surveys and getting paid to refer new survey members.

This is a big key point that you should understand. Many survey companies you can join for free will also pay you to recruit new members.

This is an excellent way to make money without actually taking surveys. In essence you are earning your money as a survey recruiter and not a survey taker.

Cash Crate is a very good example of a company that pays out thousands of dollars every month in commissions. As a matter of fact they claim to have paid out millions of dollars in commissions in the past.

This is not an actual survey company, but rather a company that serves as a middleman between their members and businesses wanting surveys taken. This is a good way to get access to a high number of surveys in one location. There are many survey companies like this available you can join for free.

The one question that people do have is why should I pay for information on companies needing survey takers? Some of the best surveys available you are not going to find on the free survey sites.

These companies charge for their information because they have to spend time keeping their database up to date. It’s only fair for them to charge a fee and you have to determine whether you want to pay that or not.

The amount of money you will make taking online surveys will vary from one survey to another. From an hourly rate standpoint you may not make out particularly well depending on what surveys you choose.

However the benefit here is you can do it from home on your own computer. You can also set your own schedule and work whenever you want so you don’t have a boss telling you what to do.

These are just a few pieces of information on why taking online surveys is a legitimate way to earn online. Plenty of people do it and so can you if you want to.
