How to REALLY Make Money with Paid Online Surveys

A complete, FREE Paid Survey System

Welcome to the complete Paid Online Survey System! For those of you who are only interested in taking paid online surveys, we have assembled some of the best paid online survey sites available. For those of you who want to make even more from paid surveys this site will show you how to reproduce this site for yourself, to increase your profits through referrals.

Let me start by saying that this is NOT one of those "Pay me for a list of survey companies and I'll promise you riches" sites. On the contrary, you should never pay to take online surveys; as all of that information is available for FREE. There are literally hundreds of companies that will pay you to take online surveys. This site has however, has streamlined that list to include only the Best. Those that pay well for the surveys themselves and also offer the best incentives for referrals.

If you've never taken an online survey, the process is pretty simple. You sign up for a survey site, which is completely free, you'll fill out a personal profile and when that company has a survey that fits that profile, they will send you an invitation to take a survey. The invitation will usually include the length of the survey, the compensation being offered and a link that will take you directly to the survey. Simply fill out the survey (which are usually quite interesting) and your compensation will be sent according to each sites policy.

Now, for the most part survey invitations are not sent on a continual basis. Unless you are signed up for a LOT of sites (which can be hard to keep track of), you will only receive one hear and one there (still a very easy and fun way to make some extra cash). But you can make up the difference by Referring people to these sites. With some effort, you can actually make more money referring people, than by taking the actual surveys.

Let's Get Started - Make sure that you bookmark this site.

OK, Now What?

Now you will begin to receive invitations from the free paid survey sites to participate in a surveys. Don't be alarmed if they don't come right away, be patient, it could take a couple of weeks, soon enough you'll start to receive them. There are several sites above that require you to login in order to participate; It Pays To Learn and Six Questions, you can also login to Memolink and start to rack up points, you can login to these sites and start generating points while you are waiting for survey invitations. Be sure to read through how these work. If you just wanted some great sites to take paid online surveys; that's it. But if you'd like to learn how to make even more money with referrals, then keep reading.

About Referrals - First lets cover the types of referrals.

Straight Referrals - Straight referrals are the simplest form of referral. You'll refer someone to a paid survey site and any incetive you receive will be added to your regular survey earnings. Straight referrals can be in the form of a referral email or a referral link. Referral incentives can range from cash, to points, to drawing entries depending on the paid online survey site. You'll find the straight referral programs marked "referral" in the notes column above.

Affiliate Programs - Affiliate programs require that you apply to become an affiliate. You need to have a website in order to apply, so you'll have to have this site up and running first. Affiliate programs tend to pay more than a straight referal and always pay in cash. Affiliate earnings are completely seperate from survey earnings. You'll find the affliliate sites marked "affiliate" in the notes column.

Ad Networks - Ad Networks are by far the most effective, and most profitable way to make referral cash. Ad Networks act as a collection point for paid advertisers, so you can get referral links for many paid survey sites from one ad network. Like affiliate sites, you need to have a webpage and they usually require you to have your own domain name and have a minimum amount of traffic. You may not qualify for an ad network at first, but keep plugging away and eventually you will. By getting into an ad network you can easily double your referral earnings, as they offer more survey sites and they pay more.
Duplicating and Modifying this site

If you've created a website before, simply copy this site and replace the referral and email links with yours. If not, don't worry, it's really quite simple. You may want to print this page out for the next part. If you have any questions fee free to Send me an email. Also, I've found a great website for beginners to learn how to create a website. This site is mentioned later in the "Customize Your Site" section, but if you have the time you may want to go through the beginner tutorial at PageTutor. If not, the instructions below should be more than sufficient. Posting your site

Now that you have your own Free Online Paid Survey website, you need to put it on the internet. If you already have webspace, follow their directions for uploading your site to the web. If not, here is a great site for finding some FREE webspace that you can post your site on Free-Webhosts. Any of these sites should have complete instructions on how to upload your site. Once you've uploaded your site, type the address into your browser to make sure it works correctly; bookmark it also. Then check all of the links on your site to make sure they work correctly.

Apply for the affiliate sites.

Now that you have your website posted, you need to apply for the affiliate programs. Below are the links for the affiliate applications. You may have to wait for a while to get your affiliate ID. Again, be patient, they will come. In the event that you are turned down for affiliate status (I don't know why they would), send them and email to find out why, make any necessary corrections and apply again. When you receive your affiliate link, follow the same procedures as above, replacing my affiliate links with yours. Remember, don't replace the links immediately above this paragraph, you need to replace the links in the initial sign-up table for these sites. Don't forget to upload your site again once you've updated the links.

The next logical step wouldbe to sign-up for an ad network and replace all of the ad netwok links. However, in order to be eligible for an ad network, you need to do a few things first. For now just leave these link as they are.

First, you need to start promoting your site

Not only will this help you get enough traffic to qualify for an ad network, but it will also start to generate referral payments. There are many ways to promote your site. Below is a quick list to get you rolling. Once you've started promoting, I would suggest searching the internet for more advanced methods. Now, the next step is optional, but will lead to you earning the most money from your paid online survey site. You can simply run your site the way it is and you will generate referrals, depending on how much time you spend promoting. But, if you really want to start making some money then move on to the next step.

Get your own domain name

Now, you actually could have (or may want to) done this step before promoting your site, but hopefully by promoting your site for free, you've started to generate some cash. You can actually just purchase a domain name pretty cheap, but I would recommend, if you're really serious, to purchase some webspace as well. If you purchase webspace, most places will throw in the domain name for free, plus you will get tons of extra tools as well; search engine submission, site statistics, website add-ons, etc... You should be able to get webhosting for anywhere between $5-$10 a month. This is the web-host that I use Aplus. They give me tons of tools and extras with my account. But you can also do a search and find any number of web-hosting services.

Apply for an ad network

Now that you have your own domain name and hopefully have enough traffic (again I recommend the traffic exchange system above as a quick way to generate enough traffic), you can apply for an ad network. I would recommend signing up for OffersQuest first. They tend to carry more survey sites than the others, and I have never had a problem with them.

Once you have been accepted by OffersQuest, login to your account and start choosing "campaigns" (survey sites) that you wish to use. Follow the same proceedures as above by replacing my ad network links with yours. Most of the campaigns will have the entire code for a banner. To extract just the link code that you need, look for the line that starts with <A HREF="http: and ends with ">. You'll be able to tell by looking at the link that I have. Your link will look the same, except some of the numbers toward the end will be different. Replace all of my ad network links in the survey table with yours. Next, make sure you select the OffersQuest affiliate program. Then go through and replace any OffersQuest links in this site with your OffersQuest affiliate link. You can also do the same for each of the other 2 ad networks. Let me again stress that after you modify your site you need to upload it to your web-host and you should definately check all of your links.

Modify the rest of the links

There are several other links that you can modify within this site. If you,ve duplicated the other systems, find the Traffic Exchange System, IPTL System and Paid Email Systems find the links and replace them with your own. The last link that you will want to replace is the recommended web-hosting link. If your web-hosting service offers a referral or affiliate link, then replace my receommended link with yours.

Modify your sponsor link - At the very bottom of this page you will find a link to your sponsor. You MUST modify the link to your sponsor with the link to the site you are copying this from. Simply copy the website address from the website you are copying this page from; you can copy it from the address bar in your browser and paste it over the sponsor link below.

Customize Your Site

Now that you've got your Free Online Paid Survey site up and running the only thing left to do is to customize it for yourself. This is not necessary, but can be fun and will ad your own personal touch to your website. You can also add other Free Online Paid Survey sites to the list if you would like or ad other paid adverising from your ad networks. If you would like more information on HTML here is a great site with a good beginners tutorial PageTutor, it also contains a "color picker" and "font guide" that I use religiously. Just remember that you may NOT eliminate your sponsors link or the originators link below. Don't worry, this will actually work to your advantage in the long run, as you will eventually become a sponsor.

Good luck with your new paid online survey site and let me know how you are making out.
