Either way, we’re glad you’re here.
Because today we’re talking about some serious paid survey essentials… What you should absolutely do to make the process smoother…
And what can potentially ruin the experience.
Keep reading to find out the ten most essential do’s and don’t of taking paid online surveys. If you aren’t a Survey Junkie member, you can sign up here.
DO Have an Opinion
This is hands down the most important thing you can remember when you sign up for Survey Junkie. Your opinion is what makes the world go round… Seriously! The whole point of answering questions on a survey is to influence today’s biggest brands. You see… Companies like Apple, Coca Cola, and Amazon didn’t become the industry behemoths they were simply from a single stroke of insight. Sure… they started with that creative spark. But after that, companies have to truly find out where their target demographics’ interests lie. Otherwise, everything they create will be a product flop.
Your opinion matters, and if you come prepared to share it, you’ll find the experience on Survey Junkie to be fun and rewarding in more ways than one.
DO Stay Honest
So here’s the thing. An opinion is great. But if it’s not an honest one, it loses its meaning. It’s important for brands to understand what you’re really thinking. Otherwise they’ll end up creating products that you’d never want to buy! The people who do the best with paid online surveys are the ones who enjoy sharing their insight, giving their feedback, and learning about the newest innovations.
DO Take Your Time
This is equally as important as being honest with your answers. Don’t rush through the surveys just to get to the finish line. You’ll enjoy the surveys more if you think through your answers. Each survey on Survey Junkie has been marked with a time stamp that estimates how long it will take to complete. That can help you decide whether you’ll have enough time on your hands to complete it.
DO Refer Your Friends
There’s no one person whose opinion is more important than another. That’s why paid online surveys attract a diverse background of participants who are eager to share their insights with today’s most relevant brands. Taking surveys is a world of collaboration – so refer your friends who you think would like to earn some cool rewards for sharing their own opinions!

Okay… So that covers the do’s of taking paid online surveys. Now what about the don’ts?
DON’T Set Unrealistic Expectations
What’s one major reason people take paid online surveys? Because of the rewards, obviously. With Survey Junkie, you will have the opportunity to earn everything from real money transferred through your PayPal account, to e-Gift cards to popular retailers like Starbucks, Target, Walmart, Sephora, and more. But it’s extremely helpful to set realistic expectations about how much cash you can earn with survey panels. That means you are not going to get rich, and you should not believe that they are a substitute for a full-time job.
DON’T Forget to Check Your Emails
Surveys fill up quickly, so you’ll have a better chance of qualifying for one if you take it when they open. It helps to check your emails frequently, because we’ll email you when a new survey that you may qualify to take becomes available on the site.
You can also check your Survey Junkie dashboard, where you’ll find surveys appointed with a time stamp and points value. And remember that even if you don’t qualify for the whole thing, you’ll still get a few points for your effort!
DON’T Forget to Fill Out Your General Profile
So you signed up for Survey Junkie and you’re eager to get started. That’s great! But before you start taking surveys, don’t forget to fill out your general profile! This questionnaire asks about your lifestyle and interests, so you’ll have a better chance of qualifying for surveys that you’ll actually enjoy answering.
Okay… So we already told you to be honest. But this one can’t be stressed enough. Answer honestly and consistently throughout your time on the site, and you’ll end up having a much more rewarding time on the site.
