If you have a few spare minutes a day and love answering questions and giving your opinion, you’ll love earning money from survey sites. You can make money on your phone, desktop, or tablet.
I’d recommend signing up for a bunch of them because each survey site looks for different demographics. The more you sign up with, the more surveys you can fill out and make money with.
Before starting, I’d recommend:
- Creating a new email account just for your survey and side hustle emails. You’re going to get a ton of emails for survey offers and having them separate from your personal life is good for your mental health.
- Figure out how much hourly you’d like to make, and only do surveys that will allow you to make that hourly salary.
- Check the offers once a day because some offers have caps on how many people can answer them.
- Track which sites offer the best surveys, so you can concentrate your efforts on them. You only have a certain number of hours a week! Do the ones that are the most optimal.
