Many people have asked, “What does it really take to succeed online?”
Some will say that you need to create a blog and write blog posts everyday.
But many (if not most) people don’t really like to write, don’t WANT to write and don’t know what to write about.
Some people recommend creating your own product and selling it on an online site like Amazon. That’s fine IF you know how to create products.
Others talk about affiliate marketing, selling other people’s products for a commission.
Now that’s a perfectly fine way to make money, but many people don’t really know how to sell.
If they did, they would find this easy to do.
WHAT IS THE ANSWER?
What I’d like to do is share with you today a way that you can get started earning income online that will help finance any business that you want to have.
All you need is time and the ability to share your opinions.
And you have both of those, right?
I’m talking about using your time to make money.
Now I know a lot of people say “Don’t trade time for money!” “You will be trapped”
And I understand the sentiment.
It would be better to have an automated online business bringing in hundreds a day on autopilot.
But, for most people, that is not the real world.
The real world is that they have limited time, too many bills, and don’t know how to build websites or create products online.
If that is you, you are going to love this!
Just imagine if you took two hours a day and you were earning $30 or $40 per hour doing something fun online.
Just imagine what that would do to your bottom line.
If you were earning $40 a day and you only did that five days a week, that’s $200 a week.
That’s $10,400 a year!
You really can earn income online with your time if you’re willing.
Now let’s examine a few ways you could do that.
First of all, if you have a specific skill you could sell that skill.
For example, if you know how to build websites you could build websites for people. If you’re a good writer you could articles for people. If you really understand social media you could post to social media sites for people.
These are all valid ways to go, but there is ONE way that has been around for a number of years.
It really works well and you can get started today.
It’s a way to use the spare time you have and turn that into cash.
This could help you pay off bills, help you build an online business, or simply give you more freedom.
That is filling out surveys.
Now you might think that that sounds like a strange idea, to do surveys online and get paid for them, but consider this: there are many companies out there who need your opinion.
They need the opinion of people who don’t necessarily USE their product but will share their opinion about it anyway.
They will pay for people to complete surveys because what they’re looking for is an unbiased opinion.
They’re looking for an honest opinion from many different people and the easiest way to do that is to leverage the power of the Internet.
Opinion research is huge, not just in politics, but in business. It’s done every single day.
The only problem with doing this is that it’s hard to find the companies.
In a few minutes I’m going to share with you some ways to do that.
But first, let me say this: one of the great things about this is that you don’t need any special skills or any special knowledge.
It can be done from anywhere.
You can take surveys anytime that you want and you can generally do as much as you want because there are so many companies out there doing market research that need your help.
So let’s say you wanted to do surveys and get paid, how could you go about doing that?
Well, you could try using Google or another search engine to find companies who are looking for survey takers.
There are also some forums and online communities you can join.
But the good news is this: there are people who have already done this and will share with you the sites that pay the best!
They’ve already succeeded with this method and they have shared what they know in books and information products.
Imagine this: you have an extra hour this afternoon and all you need to do is log into a site that has already done the research for you, find a survey that you’re interested in, and then with a couple of clicks take that survey and get paid.
That’s so much easier than going out and doing all of the research yourself!
Now when it comes to making money by filling out surveys, there are a couple of things you need to know.
It will take a little bit of time but it won’t take a lot of time.
If you have some time available and you’re willing to share your opinion, you have what it takes.
The next thing is, you should never be in the situation where you need to purchase something in order to get paid for taking a survey.
That’s really not the type of deal you’re looking for.
You’re looking to earn extra money here, not to spend extra money.
What you want to do is find offers where you can get paid honestly for taking a survey and giving your unbiased opinion.
The third thing is, you don’t want these surveys to take very long.
Try to avoid surveys that might take 30 or 45 minutes long to complete, but rather try to find surveys that are much, much shorter.
Then, the fourth and final tip I would give you is this: you really want to only take surveys where your opinion is somewhat informed.
In other words, if you’re taking a survey for a recipe company but you’ve never cooked a meal then it’s better for you to avoid that survey.
But if you’re a person who likes to play golf, for example, and you find a survey that is golf related (and by the way there are many of these), then you can participate in that survey with integrity and you can earn a good amount of money for your opinion.
Here are my best tips …
- Stay away from surveys that are too long.
- Stay away from surveys where you have to pay a fee in order to participate.
- Stay away from surveys that are in areas where you really don’t have any expertise at all.
When I say expertise, please understand you don’t have to be an expert. You just need to have some knowledge to give you context.
You want to be ethical and honest about this and the way to do that is only participate in surveys where you have some base of knowledge.
But by all means consider looking for survey opportunities because these exist everywhere on the internet and they really are an easy way for you to earn extra money in your spare time by simply sharing your opinion.
My advice is to look for a site that LISTS survey opportunities.
Then join that site so that you can simply login, find the surveys you’re interested in and take them.
If you do that, and do it consistently, you can create a serious side income for yourself by simply sharing your opinion.
And that is a beautiful way to earn extra income!
