If you have ever tried making money online you will have found that most methods ask you for some upfront investment. Most of the time you will not make your money back on that initial investment. That is the sad reality of the current state of the internet. There are about 100 scams for every legitimate offer. Doing surveys is one of the only legitimate ways to earn consistent money online if you find the right website. The good news is that you can earn money month after month with only an investment of your time, not your wallet.
Out of all the survey sites I have researched and tried myself the one which stands out above the crowd is Cashcrate. Cashcrate is a legitmate company which pays in real dollars not points. The amount of surveys available and the payouts blow all the other survey sites out of the water.
I will go over the basics and some of the insider info on how to make the most of Cashcrate in the following chapters but to begin with click on the above link and sign up. You can always cancel your account if Cashcrate doesn’t suit you.
Tips To Get Started
There are some valuable tips for making the most of survey sites in general which can bring in the most available surveys at the highest payouts and I will cover them here.
If you are signing up to multiple survey sites you will need to setup a separate email address to the one you mainly use for social and business purposes. On cashcrate this will simplify things for you. You won’t have to search through all your mail to find the important surveys and offers. However most of the offers you will be doing can be accessed through the cashcrate homepage by checking in frequently. So creating a separate email address is completely up to you. You will need to add your new email address which you used to signup to Cashcrate to your PayPal account in order to receive payments.
We are not going to bother doing all of the extra tasks and offers. Some of the additional offers on Cashcrate can earn you big one-time payments, but they are not a reliable source of earning money. Do check out the rest of the site to see what’s of interst to you. But to earn the most money consistently your main focus should be on completing the surveys.
After signing up, fill out all the basic profile questions. Profile questions can pop up continuously for a while. Try to fill out as many of these as you can completely. The reason is that you will get many more surveys available to you if you do fill out the profile questions as companies are looking for specific audiences. So the more detail they have on your profile the better.
Most companies are looking for people who are working already. So when answering profile questions or answering questions at the beginning of surveys, never say that you are unemployed. Surveys on offer will ask you to answer some basic questions about your current work, age and so on, to check if you qualify to take the survey, and if you answer that you are unemployed in most cases you will not qualify.
How to Earn The Most From Surveys
There are two basic types of surveys on Cashcrate. These are research surveys and targeted surveys. Research surveys are offered daily and targeted surveys are specific to you and generally offer higher payouts. To earn the most from the site you will want to do as many of the highest payout targeted surveys as you can before tackling the research surveys.
The payout of research surveys usually varies from 50c to $3. They aren’t associated with any sort of third-party product so they don’t collect personally identifiable information about you. Which is good if you want to take a survey of interest to you. You can earn consistent money with research surveys. Even doing the lower payout ones on a daily basis will earn you around $50 extra per month. They are available every day so you can check back daily and find more available.
In order to qualify for targeted surveys or bonus surveys you will have to complete your profile questions first as I mentioned earlier. I have seen the payout on these surveys go over $5 for about 10 minutes of time to complete. If you are from an English speaking country like United States, UK, Australia and Canada you will get a lot more targeted surveys and can earn good money from these. These surveys are available only to people who meet the demographic of the company who is conducting the survey. There is usually some questions at the start of the survey which check to see if you will qualify to take it and be paid. I have found that they are usually questions about a product or brand and are seeking to find out what the public thinks of their brand. So it’s important that you expand on your interests at the beginning of the qualification process in order to get the most money from the targeted surveys available. However if you don’t qualify for one of them you can take another targeted survey which often offers the same payout amount. They usually disappear quickly so do them first and frequently.
Taking It To The Next Level
If you want to take your earnings to the next level you can participate in the referral program that Cashcrate offers. This is where marketing comes in. There are a ton of books and information on affiliate marketing online and in the Cashcrate forum so I won’t go into detail about how to market here. But generally you can refer any friends or customers you have through social media for example to Cashcrate and earn residual payments on whatever they make. If your referral earns $1 from a survey, they will keep the full amount and you will earn 20c to 30c paid by Cashcrate. The more people you refer, the more those little amounts will add up.
There are two levels of referrals on Cashcrate. At first you will earn 20% of what your referrals make and 10% of what their refferels make. As you refer more people the percentages that you earn also increases until you, as an elite member, are earning 30% for first level referrals and 20% for second level.
This is not for everyone. A lot of affiliate marketing requires you to spend money. There are some useful methods for how to get referrals without spending money in the Cashcrate forums. But if this isn’t for you, you can still earn good money from the site by doing surveys or other offers.
There are a number of payment methods you can choose from on Cashcrate. Starting out you can choose to be paid by check or Dwolla. As you earn more or get more referrals you can change your payment info to have your payments issued through either Dwolla, check, direct deposit or PayPal. Once you have earned $500 or have 50 active referrals you can set your payment to PayPal.
If you earn at least $20 you will be sent payment on the 15th of each month. When you achieve Silver and Elite member status you can change your payment details to be paid on the 1st of each month or on a weekly basis. Choose ‘your name’ and ‘my account’ near the top right of the website and click payment settings to change these options.
As you can see there are a number of ways to earn money legitimately through survey sites, especially Cashcrate. I recommend that you click on the link below, sign-up and follow the steps outlined in this book to make the most of the site. It is honestly the best survey site out there and possibly the only one you will need. If you follow this book and fill out your profile completely you will be swamped with more offers than you will have time to complete. Surveys have been around for a long time and they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. The people on Cashcrate are also very helpful in answering any questions you have. So don’t be afraid to browse the site and the forums and ask for help if you need it. Thanks for reading!
