If you enjoy taking surveys online, Surveyspot.com is an ideal way to make a few extra dollars in the privacy of your home. Best of all, Surveyspot will not give out your personal information to its advertisers, so you don’t have to worry about getting dozens of phone calls from people trying to sell you everything from health insurance to an online education.
To participate in Surveyspot.com, you must be at least 18 years old. Only one person from each family can sign up for the site, but there are many surveys that teenagers can participate in that pay. Family members just need to divvy up the money when it arrives.
Not all surveys at Surveyspot.com offer payment. Some of them simply offer a sweepstakes entry. But you are under no obligation to do any survey in which you don’t want to participate. Unlike some sites, survey offers are sent to you via e-mail. You are under no obligation to respond to the e-mail if the survey does not interest you and you will not be kicked off of the site.
If you find a survey that offers a cash reward, payment is immediate. Unlike many other online survey companies, you do not have to accumulate a certain dollar amount before receiving payment. The money is sent to you via check and generally arrives within four weeks after survey completion.
You may also be asked to test new products that will be delivered to your door. This is an excellent way for people to try different products that they would otherwise not buy. In most cases, you will be financially compensated for testing the product.
To sign up for Surveyspot.com, you simply need to click on the website and hit “join.” You will be asked a series of questions, including your telephone number. Surveyspot adds a disclaimer that it will not share your telephone number with anyone. Since I joined this website, I have not received any telephone calls from any solicitors of the products I’ve surveyed.
The surveys are fairly simple and generally take only 10 minutes to complete. The one drawback of this site is that you have to wait a few days to participate in surveys and you can only participate by responding to your e-mail. If you have a spam folder on your e-mail account, you may miss some e-mails, so it is wise to add the website to your general address book.
Throughout the year, various sweepstakes are awarded to lucky prize winners. These range from cash prizes to luxury vacations. If you are lucky enough to win a sweepstakes, Surveyspot will notify you by e-mail.
Some of the marketing companies that Surveyspot.com represents include the Marketing Research Association, the American Marketing Association, American Association for Public Opinion Research, The Council of American Survey Research Organizations and the Advertising Research Foundation. Unlike some disreputable online survey firms, Surveyspot.com is a legitimate marketing website. They will never ask you for any money and are careful to keep your private information private.
If you are just starting to explore the world of online surveys, Surveyspot.com is a comfortable place to start. After you join, an e-mail will be sent to your account to confirm your membership.
