Tips to Make More Money From Survey Sites?

  1. Join as Many as you can:-  Some sites provide you surveys occasionally and some sites provide surveys to more often. When you sign-up for only 1 or 2 sites, then you may don’t have any surveys to do most of the times. So, by signing up with all surveys sites helps to get a handful of survey sites whenever needed.

  2. Create a separate E-mail account:-  To make more from the survey sites, you should try to answer many surveys. By creating a separate E-mail account helps you to get a notification every time there is a survey available & also they will not mix-up in your personal E-mails, so you have high chances to find more surveys.

  3. Be aware of Fake Surveys:- Every survey site is not a legit one, you can find many survey sites online which will say that they will pay you, but they will not pay any amount at the end. All the websites I mentioned above are trustworthy and you can even try different websites by checking reviews of that website. Don’t believe the website when there are many negative reviews and also don’t believe any website with no reviews.

4. Don’t ever pay to join any Survey site:- Survey sites are helpful for companies and they will pay for the sites. So you don’t need to pay any amount for survey sites. If any survey site asks you to pay money to join, you better neglect it.


Survey sites are a means of making extra money one can do without any hassle or hard work. This is one of the best ways to earn extra cash, but this cannot be your main source as you cannot earn more from the survey sites and also the income will not grow upon experience.
