SurveyScout

Developed by a work-from-home entrepreneur, Susan Smith, SurveyScout’s goal is to pair up companies who are interested in customer feedback with consumers who are interested in working from home. Through a variety of avenues like online surveys ($5-75 each), focus groups (up to $150 per hour), phone surveys (up to $120 per hour), movie trailer surveys ($4-25 per hour), and product trials (you keep the products), SurveyScout allows you access to a variety of companies that in essence pay to hear what you think.

Although your ability to make money is directly related to the amount of time you are willing or available to work, there are no specific requirements that say you must work a certain number of hours per day or week. Your yearly membership fees to SurveyScout cost $34.95, and while you are responsible for securing a computer as well as phone and internet connection, if you are able to motivate yourself to continue completing surveys, you should easily be able to cover your yearly costs.

In addition, SurveyScout promises to provide you with access to tips and advice for making money on the internet (from Debra Casey) as well as the e-book Survey Success. If you feel like you can justify the additional $35 a year, considering signing up for SurveyScout and start making money working online today.

Pros
you’re likely to get out of it only what you can put in.
• Similar to other online survey companies, SurveyScout offers set fees for each item you complete, but you are able to choose which surveys or products you want to try.
• To help you with your online surveys, SurveyScout also offers free downloadable programs that will help you complete surveys in much less time.
• Compared to other companies, SurveyScout’s website claims that they are the only company offering telecommuting jobs, insider tips and trips, and the Survey Success e-book with your membership fee ($34.95 per year).
• In addition to a variety of surveys, SurveyScout also provides “Work from Home” job opportunities from over 250 outside companies, including data entry, transcription, call center agent, customer service, and more.
• The SurveyScout website offers you the chance to take a test survey so you can get a feel for the kinds of “work” you will be doing on a regular basis.
• There are a number of positive testimonials available via SurveyScout’s website.
Cons
• A Windows operating system is required for SurveyScout.
• SurveyScout also lists an extensive privacy policy and terms agreement before you are able to complete surveys, in large part to protect the merchants who would be requesting your opinion.
• As with any survey company, SurveyScout cannot guarantee that you will earn any particular wage but instead warn that you steer clear of possible survey scams.
