Online Survey Taker Jobs – Are They Any Good?

Hey everyone, Clark here and welcome to I know that online survey taker jobs are real popular on the Internet, probably due to the fact that you don’t need any sort of special education or experience to do it. But should you go into it?

My personal opinion is no, as you’ll be spending a lot of your time for minimal pay, and I’ll give you an example. Of all the best online survey websites I’ve heard of, Swagbucks seems to be the most highly recommended. However, each survey at Swagbucks takes around 10 minutes to complete, meaning IF you receive an endless flow of surveys that you can participate in, you’ll earn around £2.40 per hour and £24.00 per day if you work for 10 hours. That’s not a lot, is it? That’s about $32.00 at the current exchange rate. That’s right, it’s basically a full-time job with less pay.

Don’t get me wrong, taking online surveys can earn you fun money, which you can use to buy fun things that you wouldn’t normally buy. Also, you may enjoy providing your opinions to help companies improve their products or services. But if you’re looking for a SUBSTITUTE for your job, I would suggest online marketing, which involves creating and growing a business on the Internet.


Do You Have To Be A Brilliant Salesman?

Of course not. In fact, it’s possible to earn a full-time income with this without selling a thing (except maybe yourself and your brand/website). Even if you decide to go with promoting/selling products for money, you’d just have to communicate using your website the same way you speak to your family members and friends. That is, write in a conversational way for all your website pages/posts.


What Exactly Is The Process Of Online Marketing?

Well, there are four MAJOR steps in online/Internet marketing and this is a process followed by successful online entrepreneurs. They are:

1) Decide on your niche (website theme/topic). This is the direction of your online business. You’re going to create and publish content on your website around this main topic, and it can be anything you enjoy or are interested in.

2) Create a website. You can create up to two for free at Wealthy Affiliate (WA). You just have to register for a free membership, then access the free training at WA which includes a lesson on website building. The technical aspects of it are all taken care of, and you just have to choose a name and design for your website. That’s all your involvement. The whole process can take less than a minute!!

I’ve written a post on how to build a website online.

3) Get traffic (website visits). If you want to earn lots of money, you need to have a lot of visitors coming to your website every day. THE way to get many website visits is writing/publishing quality (relevant, informative, engaging) posts, which builds trust with the search engines and gets your posts on the first pages of search results. If your post isn’t on page 1 it is very unlikely that people would click on it and read your content.

Also, every post you create should be targeting a keyword. Insert it (your keyword) somewhere in the post’s title as well as somewhere in the first paragraph of your post. To know more about keywords, read my post (second half): How to be Successful with an Online Business

4) Make money. Two of the most popular methods of earning money with your website are affiliate marketing and placing advertisements on your website. Learn more here.


How Much Can You Expect To Earn?

Ah, the most important question of all. The bad news is you have to put in a few hours each day (writing new content, working on your website’s layout) if you want to earn a full-time income (say $2,000-$3,000/month) within 3-6 months of building a brand new website on the Internet. The good news is you can earn a full-time income within just 3-6 months of building a brand new website. It’s also possible to scale your online business to earn tens of thousands of dollars per month in a few years’ time if you’re willing to put in more hard work.

The abovementioned free training at WA guides you through the four major online marketing steps discussed above and not just creating a website. Thus, a free membership at WA can help you get your online business well on the road. Get started with online marketing by reading my WA review.
