Making Money Answering Surveys: How Does It Work?

There are several paid surveys aimed at various companies and prepared by survey sites, which allow you to work as a freelancer, just asking for your opinion in return.

It works like this: companies need the consumer's opinion about their products and services, so that they can have feedback and seek to improve more and more.

Market research is an essential strategy for the proper functioning of a business.

In fact, it used to be performed in person until the internet came to facilitate and optimize this process.



So, to start making money answering surveys, you will basically need:


  1. Create a specific email to deal with it: this way it's easier to keep your work of answering online surveys organized;
  2. Plan your routine: establish a time that best suits your reality so you can dedicate yourself to research;
  3. Register on sites that provide these surveys. We'll talk about which ones you can do later on;
  4. Create and fill out a very complete profile on each of these sites, so that you are more likely to fit into the demographic for each survey, as each requires a profile to be able to respond;
  5. Knowing that, most of these companies will send surveys daily in your email. But for some, you may be required to answer a few questions to let them know if you might be part of their demographic;
  6. Be honest when answering surveys, because that's exactly what companies are looking for. They vary a lot from one to another, some are smaller, others larger and so on.

Rewards are realized in different ways.

The vast majority of sites, you are rewarded with points that when they reach a certain amount, are reversed in cash.

Other companies can pay directly in cash, from a few cents to more than R$10.

This is something very particular to each research and company.

Payment is usually in foreign currency and made via PayPal and the money is transferred to your account, as simple as that.



That is, you need to create a PayPal account if you don't already have one.

In addition, there are companies that distribute products for free, for you to evaluate and give your feedback.


You can also be nominated for sweepstakes and win prizes, for example.

Extra tips on how to make money answering surveys

First of all, to succeed and make money answering surveys, you need to have discipline, consistency and patience, because it takes time to get the hang of it and understand more in depth how it works.

To work with paid surveys, it is of paramount importance that you have a good antivirus installed on your machine or cell phone, as there are malicious websites that may be there just waiting to attack your device.


By the way, be very careful with sites that ask for too much invasive personal information, like your credit card or bank details, for example.

You can end up falling for Phishing, a scam where you access a link to a fake page, thinking it's the legitimate one, and it ends up stealing your personal information.

Also watch out for sites that require some form of payment so you can start participating in surveys and sites that are little known.

Another tip is that you try to filter and seek to answer surveys that offer you a greater reward and that can be carried out in less time.

And last but not least: you know those mentioned prizes that some sites can give you as a reward?


Well, they range from appliances and electronics to books and toys.

A very good tip for you to make money from this is to sell these items on sites like OLX, Mercado Livre, Shopee or sell them through your own social networks or the way you prefer.

No matter how, the idea is one: to turn these gifts into money, in case they are not of much use to you.
