Survey Sites and Home based Jobs



How many sites that claimed to be a legitimate paid survey site, asked you for money to sign up? One thing is sure to answer: Why should you pay for an “online survey site registration” that should pay you for your opinion?

Avoiding scams: First they will pay us for our opinion but then they ask you a fee for joining / registration? Let´s be logical, ok? If a company wants your opinion on a product, they will hire specialized market research companies that have a “panel”, a huge member list where they can forward some surveys about a product or service that the client company wants to make some research about using the opinions of the final consumer. The client company pays the market research company for the study, and the market research company pays you for the opinion.

Companies that hire this market research online sites, can be anything from FMCG companies, Oil companies, technology companies, food companies, any kind of company that have consumer products to offer. They need your opinion on certain products as a marketing strategy to sell those products to the public. With that research they can at least have some idea what the final consumer prefer in that product or service. This way the company can be sure to release a good product that everyone likes.

Authentic Survey Companies, will give you surveys, will never ask you any kind of fee to be a member and will never ask you for credit card details. So before you venture must ensure that you are not trapped in scam net.

There are many bad websites out there claiming that anyone can make hundreds of dollars every day, this of course, are scams that many people fell in because they do not know the necessary information.
Unfortunately it is hard to know if a survey site is legit or not. You will not get rich, but you can make a nice extra every month if you put some extra effort on it.

These are some of the top survey sites that pay and have a long history on the online market research. They do pay and rest assured they are legit. Registration in all of them is free. You will never be asked for any kind of payment.
