Companies want your opinion. In fact – they need it. Consumer opinion is how companies hone their products and their marketing techniques. However, conducting in-person focus groups gets expensive since they have to rent a space, provide coffee and donuts, etc. That’s why a lot of companies now pay people to take surveys online. You can do the surveys from any device – laptop, phone, tablet – and get paid anywhere from $2 a survey to $50, depending on the nature of it. Many work on a points system, through which you earn points for every survey taken, and then can cash out after earning a certain amount.
