Paid market research has been around for well over five years now. The truth of the matter is that there’s never been a better time to step into this world and grab yourself a piece of the cash pie that’s being served. I want to tell you why surveys are a perfectly legit way to earn money for your opinion and give you a roundabout idea of how much money you can expect for paid market research.

Let’s start off with the main question that most people have: Why would companies want to pay “me” for my opinion? This is pretty simple to answer. Companies from all around the world always need opinions, thoughts and input about products that have not been released yet. It’s a good way for them to test what people want, what they need and what they are looking for in future products. They love getting people’s honest thoughts on how they are doing as a company and what they can improve on to better serve their costumers. That’s why paid market research will always be a part of the internet. There is always a need for opinions and companies are always willing to give you good money for your thoughts.

When it comes to the amount of money you can make, you can look at it two ways. You can look at it as a way to make extra cash on top of your full time job and you can look at it as a way to pay some of your bills at the end of the month. While you won’t get rich with paid market research, you can easily make 3 to 4 hundred a month. You’ll need to sign up to 4 or 5 of the better paying websites do do this, but this isn’t the least bit hard. If those amounts sound good to you, then surveys should be something that you do on a daily basis, if you have the time.

There will always be a need for paid market research, because people like us need money and companies need input.
