I’m always looking for different ways to earn money online so I can increase my personal income. More and more people are discovering that the internet is a big place full of potential to earn money – and we can get started earning money right now.
I would like to talk about making money with paid online surveys. I first heard that you could be paid for online surveys about 4 years ago. I signed up some survey sites, did a few surveys with limited success. As time went on I found I was receiving more offers, and in the end, I received my first online income in the year 2014.
There are now lots of legitimate survey sites that allow you to make money doing surveys. Nevertheless, I couldn’t join some of the reliable survey sites due to my location (I’m from Malaysia). Even there are some local survey sites, I couldn’t find any better than this. This is an easy way to make the additional income. It is little, but still, I used it to pay my first blogging site on WordPress.com.
I’m sharing with you what I’ve learned about doing online paid surveys and how you can be successful and get paid!
To have success the first step for you is to find legitimate paid survey offers. You may search on the internet and you can find lots of survey sites which have been reviewed by users.
The only survey site I joined is Global Test Market and this is my recent income from this survey site.

If you want to consistently get paid for doing surveys, you need to
- Be consistent – if you want to get paid to do surveys regularly, you need to prove you’re up to the task. It shows that you take the offers seriously and you’re still alive and ready for more surveys. Better quality offers will come in the future.
- Be honest – the survey sites will cross check you. I treat those offers seriously. From my point of view, someone is really paying me to take part in research and although I’m only doing it for money, I still need to be honest so I can help those researchers to get reliable data.
In conclusion, it does require some effort to get paid by doing online surveys. You need to fill in your profile entirely after signing up. This will immediately filter out surveys that not suitable for you and pave the way for real offers that pay money.
If you participate in any legitimate survey sites which allow residents from Malaysia to join, please leave a comment here. Your recommendation is much appreciated!
