Like anything in this world, there will be opposing forces that will try and sometimes will talk you out of a passion, a dream, a goal or maybe something that interest you. Depending on on what it's about, it actually may be a good thing. The business of online surveys is no exception. People have their own opinions on this topic. Some hate it, some love it, there are even those who will claim that it is nothing but a scam. Fortunately for us some rumors are just not true. I will list and elaborate 4 major rumors that are not true about online surveys.

1. You Can't Make Money Doing Online Surveys!

This is a rumor that chops the heads off of most beginners. It has been proven over and over again by many bloggers and online survey takers. This blog alone proves it! Look for my posts labeled "Proof Of Payment" and you will find that I have have been earning some extra cash. Money in the bank does not lie. So rest assured, online surveys do pay. Why do rumors like this spread? Because there are many that give up fast and early in the game that all they can say is that you can't make money. Be patient and be willing, the money will come.

2. Online Survey Companies Are All Scams!

This is a rumor that is exaggerated. Though there will be scam sites there are many that are not. In fact, most are not scams! If you want to determine the sites that are legit, look at the site and find a link that shows that they are a member of the Better Business Bureau. Those that are not affiliated with this should be further studied as they may be a scam site. Look for user reviews and see what others have to say before judging.

3. They Don't Pay You Enough!

There will be sites that pay too little or don't pay by cash. But to say this for all online survey sites is a bit harsh. There are many that pay well. It is your job to sort out the best from the rest. There are even many suggestions from experienced users. I've also posted some articles that give out suggestions based on actual experience. Look for my posts labeled "Suggestions and Guides". Go for what you want, If you want cash, focus on the sites that pay cash, if you love gift cards, focus on the sites that pay out with gift cards.

4. Online Surveys Are A Waste Of Time!

Many people will claim that these opportunities are a waste of time based on limited knowledge and experience. Most people who claim this, are probably those who have tried and gave up too early. Don't let these rumors discourage you, If you really focus and stick with your guns and grow your revenue streams, you will discover that it is not a waste of time, instead perhaps an investment of your time. For many people, online surveys provide the means for that extra boost to put food on the table, to be able to pay rent, to be able to buy that gift you've always wanted to give to your loved one. For these people, myself included, it is not a waste of time. It is a blessing and opportunity.
