Compensation varies

What does this mean? Most online surveys pay between $1 and $5 dollars to complete.

Few surveys may pay as much as $10, while others may pay as much as $20 (more can be earned by participating in focus groups, for instance).

But not every survey will reward you with cash for your time and effort. As a form of compensation, some surveys offer products. Many surveys will ask you questions about particular goods, which are the same products that you will be provided as compensation. While some of these items may be useful to certain individuals (for example, home, personal care, and cleaning supplies), they may not contribute to your daily income. Furthermore, rather than cash, you are more likely to receive consumer goods or gift cards as a reward.

Participation is still worth it

Is all of this to say that taking surveys is a waste of time? Not at all. Although you won't be able to make a living by answering a few surveys every week, you can add a considerable amount to your monthly income by including online surveys into your daily work schedule.

If you can complete a couple of surveys per day during the week, you may be able to raise your earnings by a significant amount, possibly up to a few hundred dollars per month.

If you already have a well-paying career that covers the bulk of your bills and day-to-day expenses, supplementing your income by answering survey questions is a great way to boost your savings. Best of all, it helps you to make money from the time you would otherwise be wasting on non-profitable activities
