You Want The Big Money? Read This!

want-big-moneyIf you want to make an amount of money taking surveys that will really have an impact on your life, then there are a few key things you need to do.

A lot of sites won’t talk about them but you will learn all about them here. Let me tell you about the basics you need to cover first.

The Basics

First of all, if you haven’t completed your profiles yet do it ASAP. Fill them out properly. If you have any questions I have tips for you on this site.

Once all of your survey profiles have been filled out, the next thing you need to do is check your inbox regularly. Honestly this is a given, but it is even more important when starting out.

Be sure to take the first five to ten surveys you are invited to no matter what. The first five to ten invitations you receive are used by the survey panels to see if you are serious or not.

That’s why it is extremely important to complete them regardless of what the payment or reward is. You definitely want the panels to know that you are serious. Once this has been established you will begin to see better and better invitations in your inbox.

Pay attention while you are taking these initial surveys. The last thing you want is to be labeled as a poor participant right off the bad.

Your Strategy

You may notice that some of the things I tell you about here are very simple and almost seem like they don’t need to be mentioned. However, they are important enough to be discussed so bear with me.

The first part of your strategy should be to join the best survey panels out there. I have put together a list of the five best panels for you to start with.

You should join as many of the best ones as you can, but it is possible to overload yourself. As a general rule, try not to go over thirty or forty panels.

By cutting things off at thirty or forty you will have to be selective and that is a good thing. You don’t want invitations for low value surveys cluttering your inbox. This will also ensure that you have plenty of high quality invitations to choose from every day. It takes you one step closer to reaching your monetary goals.

The next part of this strategy is a little more complicated. Since some panels don’t put a clear cash value on each survey, you need to come up with some kind of conversion system.

A lot of panels use a point system and once you have so many points you can choose to exchange them for cash. The problem is that the conversion is different for every survey panel.

By making your own system or table you will be able to immediately tell which surveys are more valuable even when they came from different panels.

Since there are so many panels and new ones are always popping up it wouldn’t make much sense to list them here. The list would become outdated very quickly. However, I will tell you how to make your own table.

What you want to do is figure out how many points it takes to make one dollar. Begin by making a table with two columns. On the left side, put the name of the panel.

Label the right column something like points needed for one dollar. You should be able to find this information on the panel’s website. Then fill in the right side with the number of points you need from each panel to make one dollar.

Once you have the table completed you will be able to quickly and easily see which surveys from which panels are actually paying the most. It will really simplify the process of deciding which ones to take.

Recap

This strategy is basic but it does work. Sign up for the best panels and pick the best survey invitations. Use your conversion table to see which invitations are the best.

Start with the most valuable surveys and work your way down until you run out of time for the day. Do this and you will see much better results than simply trying to pick random invitations. Your earnings every month will show it.
