There seem to be hundreds of surveys for money sits on the Internet these days. People usually assume they are all scams because of the things they have heard about them. While there probably are some scams out there, the vast majority of them are real and legitimate.
CashCrate is one of the survey sites that is on the up and up. While you will not be able to make a full time living off this type of site, you can make a solid $50.00 to $200.00 a month there and even more if you learn how to make referrals.
Survey / GPT (get paid to) websites make their money by matching up advertisers to people who are willing to try products, take surveys, or sign up for things. Companies have advertising budgets and one of the ways they use that money is to pay for leads. Survey sites take a small cut of the money for being the middle man and they pass along the rest of the money to the person participating.
Usually the amounts you get paid are under $1.00 for signing op for things or taking surveys. You can do those for free but if you want to make more, there are always offers that pay more but require you to buy something. For instance, if you wanted to send flowers to your Mom on Mother’s Day, you you could buy the flowers through the GPT website and get a significant kickback of maybe even up to $10.00.
Learning how to make referrals is yet another legitimate way to make money with most survey sites. They will pay you a small amount for every person you bring to the site that signs up and does an offer. They get a new customer and in return for that they are willing to pay you a small finder’s fee.
In conclusion, contrary to what you hear, most online survey sites are legitimate and will pay you. People continue to call them a scam though, mostly because they have too high expectations.
