ways to avoid survey scams. Today's article will be an extension of that. Many survey sites in this industry don't pay members what they are worth, instead they are paid by gift vouchers or prize winnings. Not that this method of payment is wrong, but I feel that the most of us would prefer cash if we were given a choice. So how do we find the best paying online survey sites?
Here are 3 important steps and guidelines to follow in your quest.
First, when browsing for these sites, observe the web page. Does it look like a professionally designed website? Does it look new? Or does it look like crap. It will be obvious when you look and navigate through the web pages available. This may sound vain, but I must stress that this is the type of first impression that will tell you a lot about the company and how they treat thier business. It is not always accurate, but it does help filter out the scam sites.
Second, look for existing discussions or testimonials as part of your investigation. Look for reviews and opinions on the company you are eyeing on. Chances are, there are folks all around the world talking about it, reviewing it, criticizing it. This is usually the best way to find real paying online survey sites. If you find that most of the comments, reviews, testimonials and discussions are fairly positive, then it is worth giving them a try.
And third, check to see if the company has dealings with Fortune 500 companies. Fortune 500 companies? These are companies like Nike, Dell, Wallmart, Panasonic and Ebay... you know, the big shots! Sites that are affiliated with these big shots often pay well and are considered reputable.
