Taking legitimate paid surveys for money sounds all very well and good, but what’s the use if you don’t qualify for any surveys? It can be extremely frustrating to spend time and effort signing up for a survey site or three just to discover you don’t qualify for any of the surveys they have. You find yourself asking, what was the point?
At this point you usually ask yourself, “Is there some specific kind of person the survey creators have in mind? And what is that person like?”
Well, the answer to the first question is: yes and no. It’s true that for some surveys the makers are only interested in a certain kind of person. If they’re trying to target their product to teenage boys they probably won’t be interested in feedback from a woman in her twenties. This is rather annoying, but the cloud does have a silver lining: somewhere out there are surveys looking for you. The great thing about market research is it’s big and wide-reaching, so the likelihood that absolutely no survey is targeting you is very slim indeed. And you’ll find these surveys are just like buses. Once one survey with you in mind comes along, three more turn up at the same time!
But it’s not all targeted surveys. Some survey makers have broader horizons in mind, and are looking for a wider variety of opinions. What’s good about these surveys is they often don’t much care how old you are or where you’re from, so long as you can give them an honest opinion on their product or truthful answers to their questions. These surveys seem rare at first, but they’re out there: it’s just a question of digging up the goldmine.
A big key to succeeding with free paid surveys is patience and perseverance. It can be frustrating at times, and there may be weeks where you only get one or even no surveys, but stick to it and your patience will be rewarded. There’s only one kind of person survey makers value more than their target audience, and that’s a loyal survey-taker who they can rely to be there to answer their questions. Let that person be you!
