  • Useful money making post Atish 🙂

    I heard about earning with online surveys, but i didn’t tried it before.

    Thanks for sharing the links and specifically for Indians.

    Really wondering with the money making opportunities offered by the Internet.

    Thanks for sharing this information, keep doing it 🙂

  • Hi Atish,

    Oh yes…there was a time when I was very interested in participating in online surveys, when I first started blogging a few years back. Mainly out of interest to see how it really works.

    I did sign up for a few paid surveys and had to create a new email or else your work email tends to get flooded with survey emails. Yes, not all the online surveys pay well, yet some do. But you need to honestly answer them and spend a lot of time taking the survey too, which is the reason I left off because it’s tough to handle too many things. More so, it doesn’t pay all that well, unless you get hold of some very good ones, or perhaps my writing paid me much better and we all need to make choices in life, isn’t it? 🙂

    I agree, sometimes your city is a restriction, and you cannot register nor take the survey if you don’t reside in that particular country, which is sad indeed. What I enjoyed most that time was the different questions that used to come with the surveys, which keeps you interested and you tend to carry on with them. It was fun till the time it lasted, but not more…no time I’d say now.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend 🙂

  • Thanks for letting me know about these legitimate sites, Atish. I hate filling up online surveys at the initial stages of my internet journey. I should try filling surveys now.

  • Hey Atish
    Thanks for sharing options for money making with filling online surveys.
    personally i have tried Panel Place few months ago. money making is slow but it guarantee to pay you for your efforts.

    Thansk for sharing.

  • A long time ago I was so interested in these types of surveys, paid to click programs etc and spent a lot of time after those. But I failed to earn a handsome amount through those programs. May be due to lack of patience or some programs really didn’t work for me. Some of them scammed me. Today, after reading your article I have realized that, still there are some programs that really works. May be in near future I will try to improve online earning through these.

  • This survey thing does not work good for everyone.Mostly these sites are partial to USA,Canada and UK citizens.

    3rd World Countries people should go other way, I think.

  • Great info Thanks !
