Getting started with online surveys and “get paid to” platforms may seem daunting, especially with so many of them existing within the industry.
How should you go about choosing the right platform to participate in?
How should you avoid wasting valuable time on unattractive platforms?
What are the do(s) and don’t(s) that you need to practice to stay in the game?
What are the tasks that you need to avoid to save valuable time while maximizing earnings?
What’s the ideal state of mind as far as participation is concerned?
In this article, I will be showing you 10 tips to maximize your experience within the online surveys and “get paid to” platforms.
So, let’s get started without further ado.
It’s always true that many people are desperate for instant financial success.
The truth is, instant success and richness don’t exist regardless of which industry you explore.
It’s the same for the online surveys and “get paid to” industries.
These platforms are here mainly to contribute to the market research industry.
The primary reason for their existence is to gather genuine users’ data and feedback for products and services innovation.
As a way to appreciate your participation, rewards and points will be awarded.
Hence, it’s advisable to stay conscious and be realistic about the earnable points.
Your role as a participant is to provide valuable feedback and opinions.
If you can get the correct mindset right from the beginning, then it will definitely smooth your participation along the journey.
So how much can you potentially earn as a participant?
Well, I’m glad you asked.
There are many platforms available at the time of writing, more will join in the arena as the clock ticks.
If you are able to participate in some of the quality and paying platforms, then earning decent pocket money is certainly attainable.
But how much exactly?
I will leave it to you to do the maths.
Earnable income is also vastly dependent on many variables.
Here’s a brief calculation.
Say you can consistently earn $10 in the form of rewards or real monetary values and you have the spare time to participate in ten platforms, your potential earning is approximately $100.
Some platforms will reward more, some with lesser rewards, so it’s up to you to identify and pick the right platforms that are worthy of your time and effort.
Avoid renting referrals
The “get paid to” arena has something called the rented referrals.
Basically, it means that members have the opportunity to rent referrals who will also be participating in various GPT tasks.
As soon as these referrals completed their tasks, you will be rewarded a certain portion of their earnings when you rent these referrals.
Now, it’s always a good feeling knowing that you can reap the rewards of someone’s effort, but then it also means that there are uncertainties involved.
The first uncertainty has got to do with hurting your wallet.
Yeah, it’s true that you have to spend real money to rent the offered referrals.
The cost to rent referrals depends on what type of package you choose.
Here’s an example of a rented referrals package offered by a particular platform.
As you can see, there are many tiers of referrals offered.
It starts from 20 cents to as high as 27 cents per referral.
So if someone intends to rent a huge quantity of referrals, that will big a big sum of spending.
Now, let’s move on to the second uncertainty before I sum it up with the reasoning why you should avoid renting referrals by all means.
The second uncertainty is the genuineness of the referrals.
Yes, a particular platform certainly states the number of referrals any members are eligible to rent.
But then, many new question marks arise.
Are they legitimate?
Do they really complete the various tasks?
Are they even real?
At the end of the day, these rented referrals could be even faked to earn money from members.
What a ridiculous scenario right?
The owners of any of the platforms may use the “rented referrals” system to monetize from their members.
To sum it up, it’s always not recommended to spend money to participate in any of the “get paid to” tasks.
Any platforms that offer the opportunity to rent referrals may look fishy and you should be careful at all costs not to channel any money to them.
These referrals could be even bots.
So, I’m sure you get my solid points, right?
Yeah, I mean it certainly looks attractive to be able to earn a portion of the so-called ” return of investments”, but then if you think and ponder deeper, fishiness certainly exists.
Stay focus without distraction
Whenever you are participating in any “get paid to” tasks, it’s extremely vital to stay focus.
If you can stay focus and concentrate on the tasks, you will be surprised how fast and efficient you can complete any specific tasks.
Efficiency translates to increased tasks completion in the shortest time possible.
My recommendation is to complete all your prioritized chores, and when it is time to complete tasks, pay the fullest attention and stay focus.
Do your profiling session truthfully
Most of the “get paid to” platforms focus primarily on the survey task.
Before you can participate in any survey tasks, there’s a pre-requirement step known as profiling.
Profiling is necessary to ensure the relevancy of the survey tasks based on your statistics such as your area of interest and the areas that you are knowledgeable of.
It’s understandable that many people do want to complete the profiling as fast as possible to save time, but then they neglected the importance of the profiling step.
So why is profiling so important?
Firstly, it ensures your inputs are valuable and beneficial to the market research companies.
Secondly, it ensures the smoothness of the actual survey task participation.
Lastly, an honest profiling session will minimize the risk of disqualification.
Disqualification is the worse scenario that you want to avoid at all costs.
Even though the smoothness of profiling is not directly in your control, but then as an efficient participant, you want to reduce the chances of being disqualified.
So, do pay more attention to profiling and go through this step slowly, and always practice honesty during profiling.
Successful people are always neat and organized.
Many people may argue otherwise but then it is the truth of the truth.
A proper organization also applies to your “get paid to” tasks participation.
As you progress through the journey within this industry, the platforms that you participate in can add up hugely over time.
Believe it or not, many people are doing this full time and they have a lot of extra time to participate in “get paid to” tasks.
If you also belong to this category of individuals, then you know exactly how important it is to organize all the platforms systematically.
Personally, I highly suggest you utilize Google Sheets to properly organize all your participated platforms.
Let’s take a look at an example below.
As you can see, it doesn’t have to be a complex sheet.
All you need to do is to organize all the GPT platforms that you are participating in into an organized list.
That way, it will save you lots of valuable time and any unnecessary flaws as you go through your participation routine.
Everyone has only 24 hours in a day, therefore it’s extremely important to make prioritization during your GPT tasks participation routines.
So whenever you log in to any specific GPT platforms, how should you begin the participation routine?
Well, it depends on personal preferences.
For me, I have a specific rule of prioritization.
Firstly, it will be the survey tasks.
Next, it will be the specific sign-up participation.
For example, signing up for a trial program, so on and so forth.
Certainly, the prioritization part is not a set-in-stone type.
There are many variables that can change the entire prioritization.
An example would be the flagship survey tasks.
Many survey tasks’ availability may highly rely on geographical areas.
A clear example would be people who are residing in the top tier countries such as The United States Of America, The United Kingdom, and Canada may have the luxury of more survey tasks to participate.
So, flexibility also plays a huge part whenever you are prioritizing the potential tasks that you wish to participate in.
Spread the words, it benefits hugely
Many people may be clueless about what I mean by spreading the words.
If you are a seasoned GPT tasks participant, then you should know exactly what I’m talking about.
Yeah, that’s right.
Many modern GPT platforms do offer the opportunity to amplify the earning with affiliate programs.
The old school saying is the referral system.
Basically, when you become a part of any platform’s family, you do have a unique referral link that you can share with friends and family members.
This link is uniquely yours and it tracks the successful sign-up in real-time.
So, if you discover any platforms that are worthy of sharing, then why not? right?
After all, it’s a win-win for everyone.
You get to earn additional income or rewards, and your referrals get to earn their fair share of rewards as well.
A quick rule here is that do not just simply share just because these platforms have affiliate programs.
Ideally, you want to share platforms that are trustworthy that will not appear today and disappear tomorrow, right?
I might be exaggerating but then many “get paid to” platforms do disappear relatively quick without you even realizing it.
