Welcome to my MySurvey.com review. I recently found out about this survey site, so I thought I would take a look at it to see what all the fuss was about…
Product Name: MySurvey.com
Overall Ranking: Bad
I’m signed up for a Google Alert for “make money online”. This means I get emails from Google with new web pages with that phrase in them. One of these recent notifications was for the following article:
This article mentions SurveysForMoney2015.com, so I clicked through to that. It is a rather badly designed thin website which seems to be set up purely just to promote one product. There’s a bunch of text on that website which I can’t really be bothered to read.
There are two yellow buttons: Register for Surveys and Take Surveys Now. Clicking either of these takes you to another website: uk.mysurvey.com. This has a video:
Next to the video is a sign-up form, which I will now fill in because it’s free. There are actually several pages of personal information to fill out, which is a bit of a drag but not too bad.
After completing the form, you get sent an activation email. Once you’ve validated your email address, you will see the following message:
Clicking this button takes you through to a page where you can take some initial surveys as a way of completing your personal information so that you can be accurately selected for other surveys.
So I started to go through the surveys, but I started to get bored. The one question on my mind was: is it worth it?
So let’s get right down to the question on your lips:
How much money can you earn at MySurveys?
Before I went any further with completing the surveys, I wanted to establish whether or not it was actually worth my time. You see, you get “points” for completing surveys, which you can then redeem in a number of different ways. One of those ways is to have money transferred into your PayPal account.
So I decided to do a little calculation:
15-minute survey = 50 points
345 points = £3 PayPal
345/50 = 6.9 (need to do 6.9 of these 15-minute surveys to earn £3)
6.9*15 = 103.5 minutes (time you would spend earning £3)
Okay, now let’s work out the hourly rate:
60/103.5 = 0.58
0.58*3 = £1.74
The hourly pay for completing these surveys is only:
So no, this is not worth my time or yours…
This is not a good way to earn money online. It’s nearly as bad as Neobucks. You can get paid more for your time by writing articles for TextBroker. If you can get approved to write the 4-star quality articles, you can earn €1.30 word, which would be €9.75 for a 750-word article, which is about £8.14 GBP or $10.88 USD. It kind of makes the survey money seem like a total waste of time, doesn’t it?
But if you like writing, there’s an even better way…
If you are good at writing and can write a bunch of articles every day, you can make more money long term by writing for your own websites. There is a money making method called “affiliate marketing”, which is really all about getting paid to promote other people’s products. It goes something like this:
- You create a website about something you are interested in that has related products that people want to buy.
- You write lots of great content for that website.
- You sign up to an affiliate program, for example, Amazon Associates.
- You link to products from the articles on your website.
- Anytime someone clicks through from your website to the product and buys it, you earn a percentage of commission.
It’s better to build a long term business
You see, when you take part in daft money making schemes like survey sites, you usually get paid only a small amount. The real winners are those who own those websites. But I’m not saying you should start your own survey site. I’m just saying you need to think more in terms of building a long-term business rather than quickly earning a tiny bit of money.
Long term success usually takes some time to build up, so that’s what it really comes down to at the end of the day. Are you really prepared to put in the effort and take the time to get something really worthwhile off the ground? If not, write for TextBroker and earn more per hour than those awful survey sites.
And if you can’t write very well, I suggest you learn. Practice makes perfect. If you aren’t willing to do that, I still don’t recommend survey sites. You’re actually better off just having a normal job that pays a minimum hourly wage.
