Hi. My name is Daryl, and I have started this blog to tell you a little bit about my experiences with genuine paid surveys, and hopefully point you in the right direction to find some websites that are quite willing to offer payment in cash for your opinions!
It all started a few months ago. I was at home one day, and there was a canvasser at my door, asking to do a little bit of market research. I didn’t have anything in particular to do, and the poor woman looked quite harassed and hot and bothered (it was a scorching hot summer’s day), so I asked her in to have a cold drink and a rest, and said I would answer her questions as all her i.d. checked out and she looked genuine.
She was with me around half an hour, and asked me a whole range of questions, ranging from the type of washing powder I used to the type of clothes I bought my children, and everything in between. She also promised me a couple of pounds in vouchers to use in the high street, which she gave me as promised at the end of the interview, so I was happy enough with that.
At the end of the interview, she asked for my email address, and said that I would be able to do another genuine paid survey online if I wanted to, for which I would receive payment in cash afterwards. This sounded promising because I was interested in making money online, so thought I would give it a try. A couple of days later I received an email from the company (I cannot remember what they were even called now!), with a link and a login code, and was told it was a series of 3 different surveys, each one taking around half an hour, and that at the end I would receive payment in cash in the post.
I clicked on one of the links, and started doing the survey. It was quite a long survey, but the good thing about it was that I could have the window open in my browser, and just keep coming back to it in between the other things I was doing online. I answered all of the questions for the first survey over one evening, in between surfing the web and doing the sort of stuff I normally do online, and when i submitted the finished survey there was a message saying I would receive another email link in the next couple of days.
To cut a long story short, I completed the 3 surveys over the next few days, as I was a little busy, and just kept saving the survey and coming back to it, and at the end I submitted my name and address, and left it at that. The following week I received a letter from the company thanking me for my time, and inside was an envelope. I opened the envelope, and there was a payment in cash for £15.00!
I was over the moon, I had discovered a way to make money online, with no catch or scam, and had been paid for my opinions as promised! I didn’t hear from that company again, and had a few really busy months after that, but it led me to do an internet search recently for similar ways of making money online, and this blog will be all about what I have found out, and my recommendations for the genuine paid surveys I have found.
I hope you enjoyed this post, and please bookmark me and join me on my voyage into making money online, and getting paid for my opinions!
