Can You Make Money With Online Surveys? Find Out Now

Can You Make Money With Online Surveys?

Ah. Wouldn’t it be nice to make money from wherever you want? That’s the dream, isn’t it?

But can you do that by filling out online surveys everyday?

Well, that’s why we’re here.

In this post, I’ll tell you whether or not taking online surveys is worth your time. And depending on the answer, I’ll also either show you how to do it OR what to do instead.


Alright. Then let’s get started.

Can You REALLY Make Money With Online Surveys?

Yes. You can. But there are 3 major reasons why I wouldn’t recommend you spend your time on them.

  1. You would be getting paid around $3-4 an hour. Most surveys take anywhere between 10 to 30 minutes and pay out around $0.25 to $5. $10+ surveys are hard to find.
  2. There are only so many companies willing to pay you for your thoughts on their products. And they can get pretty picky on who’s eligible.
  3. There are a lot of scammers in the survey game. If you’re not careful, you could waste hours and hours on surveys someone else will get credit for. You may even give your credit or bank card details to the wrong people.

So, if you don’t wanna get scammed or waste your valuable time on stuff that would only pay you chump change, then I’d suggest you stay away from online surveys.

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to bash the survey game.

I’m just saying there’s something that is so much better. Both timewise and moneywise.

Here’s What You Can Do Instead

Start your own website.

Why? Because there are a lot more opportunities to make money online than with surveys.

Let me show you a few examples:

i. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is where you promote other people’s products and get paid a percentage of every sale.

This basically means you get a cut every time one of your visitors buys whatever you’re promoting.

For example, if you sold a laptop at $500 and the affiliate commission rate is 20 percent, then you would earn $100.

Not bad, right?

But to be successful, there’s a lot that goes on in the early stages. This isn’t something you can get rich with in a short period of time.

ii. Online Services

Offering services online is also great.

A lot of pro bloggers and marketers usually start their online careers with some affiliate marketing. Then they move onto offering their own special service.

And finally, explode their income with their own products. Which we’ll get to in a sec.

Anyway, there are many services you can offer to your visitors. Here are some ideas:

  • Private coaching and consulting
  • Freelance writing
  • Virtual assisting
  • Content marketing
  • SEO and link building
  • Guest blogging
  • Influencer marketing
  • Blog management

Pretty cool, huh?

ii. Digital Products

Creating and selling your own digital products on your site is one of the best ways to earn online income. In fact, it’s the best way. You would make the most money this way.

And there are so many possibilities. A digital product can be virtually anything, right?

This can be:

  • An eBook.
  • A membership program.
  • A special software tool.
  • A training program or online course.
  • Basically, anything you can download OR use on your web browser.

But of course, there’s one important factor to all this.

You will need to build an audience. And that takes time and a lot of hard work.


So. Are online surveys worth your time? No.

That’s why I recommend starting your own website (and build it into an online business).

With a website, there are so many money-making opportunities, like affiliate marketing.

So don’t waste your time in the survey game.
