1. The job. Answer easy questions about the topic of the survey.
When you join a paid survey site you're going to complete a profile. You want to be as honest as you possibly can because your profile will be matched against surveys that companies are looking for information on.
Based on your profile you will be qualified to complete a certain percentage of surveys you initially start to take. Some of them you will not be qualified to take and you will be stopped before you waste any more of your time completing the survey.
2. Where to find surveys to take. generally comes in two forms.
Survey offers will be e-mailed to you and you can use to click on that link and complete the survey if you have time. Another way is to login to your members area and find numerous surveys to take.
Companies such as Cash Crate have several daily surveys that you can complete. Any survey site you join is going to have new surveys added all of the time you can log on and take.
One key point is to join as many survey sites as you possibly can at one time. Why? Because in terms of sheer numbers the more survey sites you are a member of the more potential surveys you will have access to.
3. How do you get paid? Each survey site is going to have their own way they will pay you.
Some might pay you on a debit card. Some might pay you in terms of reward points. You might even get paid by direct deposit if you have a checking or savings account.
A common payment method on the Internet today for various things is PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account this is something you should sign up for. It is free as well.
4. Is it worth it? You are not going to get rich taking online paid surveys.However from a supplemental income standpoint sitting at home and earning a couple hundred dollars a month taking paid surveys is something anybody can do.
Beyond that many survey sites have a referral program you can also make money from. This is the best way to increase your income without spending more time taking all the surveys herself.
