Is GlobalTestMarket Good?

I can’t believe I haven’t posted about GlobalTestMarket before. Is GlobalTestMarket reliable? Yes. Is GlobalTestMarket a scam? Absolutely not. It’s a great paid survey website that will definitely bring you some money.

I honestly haven’t spent much time taking surveys from GlobalTestMarket, but a bunch of my friends have. Here are some positive things I have heard from my friends regarding GlobalTestMarket:

  • They pay on time
  • The rewards are generous
  • They send a lot of paid survey opportunities regularly

I’ll start putting more time into GlobatTestMarket and report back soon. In the mean time, sign up with GlobalTestMarket by clicking the image above and leave a comment explaining your experience!

Is SurveySavvy a Scam?

SurveySavvy paid surveysSurveySavvy promises to pay people to take surveys. I have heard of people being paid $1.00 to take a 30 second survey (which equates to $120 an hour). Is SurveySavvy a scam?

No, SurveySavvy is definitely not a scam. In fact, I can personally guarantee that Survey Savvy does not scam people. I have gotten paid by check from SurveySavvy several times. I would have to argue that SurveySavvy is the best online paid survey company out there. SurveySavvy and the word scam do not belong together!

How much does SurveySavvy pay? That’s hard to answer. I have personally received paid surveys from SurveySavvy offering up to $13.00 for a 45 minute survey. However, I did not qualify. The highest paid survey I have taken from SurveySavvy paid $5.00 for a 20 minute survey. Did I get paid? Yes. I received the $5.00 in my account within 2 weeks.

Does SurveySavvy have a minimum payment amount? No, SurveySavvy not have a minimum payment amount. That’s right, you can request payment whenever you would like, regardless of your account balance. That’s one way you can tell that this company is certainly not out to scam anyone.

How much have you made with SurveySavvy? I have personally made a few hundred with SurveySavvy. I have requested checks ranging from $7.00 all the way to $50.00+. I usually receive the checks within about 2 weeks of requesting them.

I would personally recommend that you sign up with SurveySavvy if you are looking for a great way to earn extra money online with paid surveys. I can personally guarantee that SurveySavvy is absolutely not a scam. Leave a comment if you agree with me or feel otherwise!

Microworkers: Get Paid to Complete Small Tasks!

I just got paid $0.45 to hit a “like” button. Microworkers is a great website to earn a fair bit of extra money by completing small tasks such as hitting a FaceBook “like” button, leaving a comment on a webpage, or writing a short review of something. I strongly recommend you sign up with Microworkers. It’s one of the easiest places to earn money online.

Is YourFreeSurveys.com Good?

I’ve tried out YourFreeSurveys for a few weeks now. So, what’s my review of YourFreeSurveys?

YourFreeSurveys is a website that doesn’t directly offer you surveys. Honestly, this was slightly disappointing. On their website they advertise surveys they are “giving” their members. YourFreeSurveys just refers you to other surveys. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, in fact I got referred to some high profiting surveys this way. More >

Is ClickBank All It’s Hyped Up To Be?

Screen shot 2010-02-06 at 9.26.11 PMIf you’ve ever looked into being an online affiliate you’ve probably run across ClickBank at some point. ClickBank is probably one of the biggest affiliate earning sources on the internet, but is it the best? More >

Got Paid by ValuedOpinions

I requested a $20 Visa Gift Card from ValuedOpinions after completing a few surveys. I promptly received the gift card, which is somewhat surprising since most online paid survey companies take awhile to hand out payment.

If you haven’t already, I would recommend signing up with ValuedOpinions. They pay a fair amount for each survey you take. I’ve gotten $5.00 for a 20 minute survey.

SurveyScout Review : The Real Deal

I’ve been a member of SurveyScout since 2006. I paid the full $34.95 to become a member. People always ask me, is SurveyScout a scam? Is SurveyScout legit? I’ll tell you from a member’s point of view and give you behind the scenes snapshots of the member’s area. Seriously, this is 100% honest; I’m not trying to make a sale and I’m not going to bash SurveyScout and then provide you with a link to another site that you still need to pay to join. I won’t hold back anything!

So, the nearly $35 fee, is it worth it? Yes and no. I found SurveyScout to be great when I was first starting out taking paid surveys online. It provided me with a list of paid survey sites to sign up with. I knew I could find most of those site links elsewhere for free, however it is so convenient to have them all in one place in an organized table.

Here’s what the paid survey database page looks like (I couldn’t take a snapshot of the survey sites… sorry):

surveyscoutdatabase

As you can see, there are 6 full pages of survey sites. There really are more than you can sign up with. It helped out a lot when I had no idea where to begin.

If you’ve already familiarized yourself with the world of online paid surveys then you may think that SurveyScout is a scam. They are basically selling you a list of paid survey sites and some supporting information that, if you look around enough, you can get for free elsewhere. However, if you take the perspective of a newcomer to paid surveys, the $35 fee saves tens of hours of searching for paid survey sites and information on where to being and what other opportunities are out there.

One benefit of SurveyScout is that, upon signing up, you get a $25 voucher to a restaurant. I redeemed my voucher to a nearby restaurant and it was 100% legitimate. I ate dinner and handed them the voucher and they took it no questions asked. Vouchers were available to thousands of restaurants, so don’t think you won’t be able to find one near you.

Another benefit of SurveyScout is all of the extra offers and opportunities you get for signing up with the site. Along with links to paid survey sites, you get links to paid email sites, paid to drive sites, and other home-based opportunities like writing articles.

Here’s a preview of the bonus area:

surveyscoutbonus

Using the links in the bonus section I found out about writing articles online and I have since earned well over $100 from it. They really are useful, yet if you look around the internet long enough, you will find these links for free. The only thing is, with SurveyScout you don’t have to pay to register for these bonus opportunities, whereas if you found them yourself some incur a fee. Even some of the links through SurveyScout require you to pay a small fee.

SurveyScout has been around for a long time and no one has any major complaints. Yeah, once you find out that you could have found the links elsewhere you get a little bummed, but then you remember that SurveyScout really helped you get on your way. Would I take the $35 back? No, probably not. I found it to be a great resource for paid surveys, but that doesn’t mean everyone else will think so. I’ve made a few hundred dollars taking paid surveys and I would have to say that I owe some of success to SurveyScout.

Would I recommend SurveyScout? Well, even though SurveyScout certainly isn’t a scam, I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone. If you’ve already signed up with a few sites then I would hold back and save your money. If you’re brand new to the online paid survey scene and you don’t want to spend the time to look around for links to register and for recommended sites, then I would say go for it. It will save you time and the $35 fee isn’t all that much.

If you’re on a budget, then take a look around this site. We offer a free paid survey database (not as big as SurveyScout’s paid survey database, but pretty close). Click for the free paid survey database.

My overall review of SurveyScout is that it offers a great long list of paid survey sites and gives some bonus opportunities, but it is definitely for the beginners and not for advanced survey takers. They don’t directly offer surveys, just the links. So, if you’re already signed up with paid survey sites, it’s pretty useless.

If you are a beginner survey taker or feel that SurveyScout can help you out, sign-up by clicking on the link below! Good luck.

Make Money with Amazon’s Mechanical Turk (mturk)

I came across an interesting opportunity to earn money online. Amazon created a website where tasks are posted with a reward. The website is called mturk, short for Amazon Mechanical Turk.

Some tasks pay around $5.00 and include things like reviewing a website or testing out a submit form. Other tasks include finding email addresses on a site or locating company information. These easier tasks pay a mere $0.05 to $0.10, sometimes even less.


My Review of Amazon’s mturk:

So far I have been slightly disappointed with Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. Sure, it’s great to be paid for doing easy tasks, but 5 cents per task does not add up quickly, not to mention these little tasks are time consuming. In order to make $8.00 per hour doing tasks at 5 cents a piece you would need to complete 160 tasks. That’s insane.

I have completed three tasks at this point. One promised to pay $6.10. I submitted the task and it won’t accept the submit, therefore wasting the time I spent completing the task. The other two tasks I completed were for $0.05, which are still pending. Once they clear (hopefully), I’ll come back and let you all know if they actually pay.

So, is there a way to make money with Amazon’s Mechanical Turk? Definitely. A lot of tasks are asking you write short articles (around 200-300 words) and they pay $1.00. This isn’t that much, however if you can turn out 8 articles per hour you will be making above minimum wage.

Let us know of your experiences with Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. Any suggestions on how to earn more money would be great!

Valued Opinions Review

About a week ago I wrote an intro review to Valued Opinions.  Now that I’ve been a member for two weeks, I can honestly say that I am quite impressed with Valued Opinions, and here is the updated review of Valued Opinions surveys.

I receive about three paid survey offers per day!  Lately the rewards have been between $3.00 – $4.00 for a 25 minute survey.  The surveys have actually taken me about 15-20 minutes to complete.  One of them was even fun!

I have qualified for a lot more surveys lately, probably because they have been matching me based on a few screener surveys I took from their website.  I am genuinely impressed with the volume of survey requests they send each day.  It’s awesome!

To keep you updated on my earnings so far, here is a snapshot of my earnings for today and yesterday (Nov. 1st, 2009).

Screen shot 2009-11-01 at 11.10.22 PM

That’s $9.00 just for today and yesterday and I’ve only been a member for two weeks.  This is definitely a trustworthy paid survey site.

I’ll post another updated when my payment comes in the mail.
