A popular part time job is taking surveys via the Internet. Some surveys pay in points, some in cash, others pay off in both ways. These positions are extremely flexible and opportunities are available on a daily basis and sent directly to you by email.
Something to consider is how much personal information you are willing to share online or with a third party. Surveys will ask for your age, gender, general location, and interests. The more information provided, the more survey options become available. Be very careful with these: If you feel uncomfortable, don’t reveal much about yourself and your lifestyle.
Surveys do not typically pay off immediately, there is often a waiting period while results are validated, etc. Some – SurveyHead is one – won’t pay out cash until $50 is earned. Read the FAQ and about documentation before getting involved. In the interests of research, Homepreneurs tried SurveyHead and earned approximately $15. Some surveys pay $1 or $1.50, while others pay up to $20. The greater the payout, the longer the survey.
