1. Create a new email account: Before you sign up with a dozen survey companies, create a separate email account for yourself and only use this account for your survey-taking activities. You’ll get a ton of survey emails, and you don’t want them clogging up your personal or corporate inbox.
2. Create a plan: If you want to earn a steady income from surveys, you need to figure out how many surveys you want to take every day or how much time you can spend on surveys. Also, when signing up with survey sites, keep a track of their payment methods and thresholds. If you find that you have reached the payment threshold on a certain site, make sure to request your payment immediately. Finally, it’s a good practice to keep track of the surveys you take and the earnings you receive, so, over time, you know what panels and types of surveys pay the best.
3. Be smart about the surveys you take: If a survey takes 90 minutes to complete and it only pays $0.50, it’s really not worth your time. Look for surveys that pay well and make sure to check how long they take to complete as well.
4. Take shorter surveys first: It can be frustrating when you start a long survey, provide detailed answers, and then get disqualified. One way to keep this from happening is by focusing on short surveys. Even if you do get disqualified, it’s likely that you haven’t spent a lot of time on it.
4. Look for new survey offers: Don’t wait for a survey offer to be emailed to you. If you don’t receive any offers, visit the survey panel’s website and check if you qualify for any new surveys.
