Make Money Online Free

Many people, especially stay at home moms and students, look for work at home opportunities to make money online. One good way is by taking surveys for money online.

You can do this in your spare time, and earn quite a bit of extra cash. It’s a great part time job for students who have no other source of income and no time to get a real job. It’s also great for stay at home moms, because it is so flexible and can be done whenever one has the free time to do it.

Most people are scared of joining survey sites, because many of them are scams!

Let’s face it, you want to make money, not lose money.

So a rule of thumb I use is that a survey site should ALWAYS be 100% free to join! If they ask for any sign up fee, or other fee to join, they are most likely a scam!

You should not have to pay money to make money.

Now if you’re asking why a site would pay you to take surveys online; the answer is because major companies such as Coke, Pepsi, McDonalds, Wendys, etc… pay these survey sites to gather people that would take their surveys on a particular product or service they offer. That way, they can get an opinion on how popular the product or service is, or if there’s anything that should be changed. In turn, these survey sites pay you a portion of that money they received, and take some for themselves as well (sort of like a commission for finding you to take the survey).

So it’s basically a win-win situation for everyone. You get online work by getting paid to take surveys. The survey company makes some money. And the advertisers (Coke, Pepsi, etc) get their opinions.

The trick is finding the right survey sites to join. The ones that are 100% free and have a good reputation of paying. That way, you know you’ll get your money and the survey site won’t just vanish into thin air after you’ve completed many surveys and wasted your time.

What is the difference between Paid Survey Sites and GPT sites?

There are many survey sites that offer only paid surveys. These are surveys that are sent to your email inbox for you to take. You usually have to complete a prerequisite of questions, in order to qualify for the survey.

There are also other sites, called GPT sites (get paid to), which offer both daily surveys (like those sent to your inbox by paid survey sites) and “offers” which are not exactly like surveys.. but they are free to complete and you also get compensated for them.

I am a member of both types of sites, however, the good thing about GPT sites, is that you can make more money by completing free offers since you do not have to qualify for them. Once you sign up, you’ll have a list of offers available to you to complete. And on most sites, new ones are added almost weekly.

Another benefit of being a member of a GPT site, is that they usually have contests every month, where you can earn/win extra cash for completing offers.

Some even offer PTC (paid to click) ads. Where you get paid for simply clicking ads!

Some also have games where you get paid to play games online!

Paid survey sites, while it’s a good way to earn money, do not offer most of these things, and qualifying for surveys can sometimes be challenging and frustrating. That is why I recommend signing up to GPT sites as well if you’re looking to make money online.

Here are 3 payments I’ve received recently from my 3 most favorite GPT sites!

My 19th Cashcrate payment.

And my 16th Deal Barbie Pays payment.

These 3 sites have been around for at least a few years, and they are known for paying every time! They have several thousands, if not millions of members, who work online taking surveys and offers and make money every single month.

These payments add up to $254.88 and bring my total earnings online to $8096.83! Pat on the back to me for hitting the 8k mark!
