There is a need for many senior citizens to earn a little extra cash. It can be used to help them cover the basics, help them pass some time, or simply to just buy. Though the opportunities are there, there are still some senior who are overwhelmed by all the new technology. But if you know the basics and are reading this article online, you can be taking surveys almost as easily. If you can point and click, and poke your fingers at a keyboard, you can earn extra money taking surveys online.
When it comes to getting started, the hardest part is finding the companies and registering. There are a lot of websites out there that promise big bucks and want to charge a fee for viewing their list of outstanding survey companies. This is very misleading. You will not get rich taking surveys, and everything you need to find out about surveys and research panels is all out there free. You just have to look for a site that will provide a free list of survey companies and free information about surveys and making money online. Make sure they are not telling you you will be making $150 hour either — its just not true. Though focus groups can pay you that much, they are not consistent and you may actually never qualify for one. The truth of the matter is that you can expect to make $1-8 per survey (averaging between 5-30 minutes), and more for specialty surveys, plus you may be chosen to receive free products.
After you have found the survey companies, all you have to do is register and confirm your registrations in your email. The individual companies will usually want you to fill out some additional profile information, but this is simply so they can pre-qualify you for the surveys they will send. Make sure you complete all your initial information, or you may find you are wasting your time taking surveys you aren’t qualified for — meaning you will get bumped from the survey because they don’t need your demographic, and you won’t get paid. It can be very tedious, but you only have to do it once. After that you just check your email whenever you want to take a survey.
That’s all there is to it. Find the survey companies, register, confirm your registrations, fill out your profile information, and answer your email promptly. Do all these steps and you will find yourself making the easiest money you have ever made.
