I notice a lot of online survey ads at google or somewhere, though the survey is free or member should pay first to get access. Is this online survey real paying program or not? Please share your argument...

There are a few free online surveys. But they come few and far. I am a member of one such survey group.I registered a couple of years back and I got only 6 surveys.I don't get any money until I complete 50 surveys.I read there are paid surveys which pay good money.Some of the members here are their members,at least they claim to be. I am not sure about this and would never join one.

Yes there r infinite survey sites on the internet. But you need to choosy about joining one. I Have earned around $30 in 3 years. I know its low, But its money after all. Ofcourse online surveys cannot substitute your job. You wont get many surveys unless you are a US or Canadian citizen, as most of these survey sites are from these countries. I can mail u the links if you want. just drop your mail id here or message me. :)

You can make a bit of extra cash with online surveys but I dont think it could ever be a real job, they are too time consuming and dont pay that well. There are some good ones out there that send you regular surveys and pay cash but they wouldnt pay the bills. They can be interesting though and if you have some spare time a little extra cash is better than nothing. I wouldnt recomend paying to join any though as there are loads of free ones out there, and I would only recomend joing ones that pay not enter you into prize draws as these would be very time consuming for probably no reward, how many people win the lottery? not many.

I really don't think that they are valid jobs. They pay very low for it to be a real "job." I think that if they payed more than half a cent to 3 cents per survey, it would be a good way of making money. What I think those sites should be used for is for people to get a little extra money. It is a website where they can earn some money online with ease. It is usually so easy that retired people use them because all you have to do is sit on a chair and invest in a computer and internet. These sites do truly pay you to participate in their affiliate's surveys. An example is gainpay.com. I made a total of 5 dollars on that website and it was very easy, but it took a long time. It was also very boring. It took me about 1-2 weeks though. Oh well, some of them are just scam sites that want your email address. I joined one website and it completely spammed my email account. That is why I never join those kind of websites anymore. That is my view on the subject.

I belong to a few that pay me. I did not fill out offers or pay them anything. I have them listed on my website (can't think of all the names right now) but if they want to you pay or get something, pass them by. Also, stay away from AW Surveys. It's a scam.

In my opinion, surveys are a complete waste of time.... After I competed all those stupid surveys it says "You have now been entered into a draw where you could win $10,000!" Or you get 20 points (20 points= 5 cents). What a joke! Been there.... stopped doing that....stopped wasting my time! If you want to make money online, there is a very simple way.

I would say if you can make a decent living on the on the online survey then go for it. I would say if they pay you upfront before you take it or if it has credible sources maybe try it out.

Surveys sites vary. If they sound too good to be true, they usually are. I know of at least 5 reputable ones that all pay money for surveys completed. Most have focus groups you can take part in, some even have mystery shoppers, You can earn anywhere between $5-$150 per survey, depending on the company. Usually, not always, your free survey sites are set up where you earn points or prizes. You need to accumulate so many points to get a prize. I prefer the paid survey sites as they pay in cash per survey. I've have been in online marketing for about two years, both as an affiliate and as one who participates in the programs. I also work with a group of people who test survey and work at home opportunities to make sure they are legitimate. They test for things like does the company have a good reputation, pay structure, reliability and so forth. Anyone is free to check it out if they want to. The site is constantly being upgraded. http://www.hmewrk4u.com
