Is It A Scam!? Testing Online Survey Websites

hey guys welcome back to my channel today we’re doing another installment of random slash weird ways to make money on the internet today’s is the most requested it’s to test out if online surveys are actually legit so I’m gonna test a few of them and see if they actually work let’s do it alright so the first one that I’m gonna test is Opinion Outpost because i’ve heard of it before I mean this website just looks really gimmicky I kind of hate how it looks okay so then you just fill in basic info all right it says my first survey is ready so let’s see I’m interested in what are they gonna ask for me oh this is probably just to like figure out your demographic please confirm your employment status I’m self-employed which best describes your current self-employment these are really boring questions so far which best describes your department video production entertainer oh my god it’s an actor slash model such a youtuber that’s hilarious I have you deeper on here and what are you in the decision to purchase products or services in any of the fun areas accounting or tax or visit insurance pretty much everything alright so I just finished the first survey and it says congrats you’ve completed a profile so now I can take an actual one so let’s try it because yeah that one’s just asking all about you okay let’s see this oh this is kind of a similar thing it just is like asking about you using five words tell us what personal goals you would like to achieve in the next five years I hate that okay so now that I finished that one it says earn 25 points in just 34 minutes basic questions to start of course where do you live who are you what do you do oh it’s a survey about health care that’s kind of interesting do you or anyone and your household currently take any of the following medications when you think of hospitals in your area which ones come to mind first cedars-sinai I’ve never actually been to it right now who asked you some questions about the hospital you mentioned but I’ve never been to it okay whatever how familiar are you with it not really I guess I’ll put two because I’ve seen it okay so I just finished that survey it took like 30 minutes I think but now I have 25 points whatever that means so I’m gonna go to my account and try and figure out like what the points equal so it says that you can redeem a hundred points for $10 in paypal and it took me like 30 minutes to get 25 points so that is really not good that’s like what 250 an hour or something like that the good thing about this I don’t think you have to be a specific age to do it but I don’t know for sure but I got this email and it says five opinion points for a ten minute survey so five minutes I’ll just do it let’s see what this one’s about okay it says equity split and team relational norms what why did they think I was a good pick for this one you currently the owner or one of the owners of a venture startup such a business I always said I didn’t qualify it said thanks for my time did they get any points I don’t think I got a good point from that guys I’ll try another one it says take a survey so let’s see if there’s any available oh this isn’t even an actual one this was just one that would get me more surveys which of the following conditions – I have none I don’t watch TV s I don’t I don’t really have cable what so the following activity is do you plan to do in the next 12 months purchase a vacation home I wish ya none of these so since Opinion Outpost didn’t really have anything that I could actually take I’m gonna try another popular one that’s called swag bucks where you got to sign up all over again that’s kind of annoying okay now I have two swag bucks get free gift cards for answering service and brands so it’s pretty obvious like why they pay like they want the like market research it’s like a focus group online okay Wow now we have all these other ways add the swag button wow so this actually has a lot more stuff I like the interface of it oh you’re gonna earn swag bucks by just like buying stuff that you kind of buy anyway you can watch a slideshow like I’m guessing it’s like a really like boring slideshow a health pledge and get one swag bucks so 9 surprising facts about diabetes so I just have to click through this I’m just looking at a bunch of ads right now this is so strange it’s gonna keep it through 9 surprising facts oh you have to wait for the countdown to finish before clicking through that’s so funny so they want you to like wait now we’re on this page gotta wait 7 seconds next page there’s only six sides so I got one swag book for that let us entertain you this is a 26 minute video and you’re looking at six swag bucks you can earn up to 500 sewing bucks per day watching unique videos it’s really a lot to this one like Opinion Outpost wants nothing like this to be honest like they have way more stuff on here okay what’s this video gonna be oair plan okay kind of cool I guess klm oh this is another ad isn’t it oh I get it you have to watch night you have to watch like a series of videos everyone’s like 20 of them 500 swag bucks and we’ll get you a find on Amazon giftcard so you can get a $5 amazon you’ve heard every day but like you’re probably taking a long time considering I would have to watch like 20 minutes worth of videos for like saying this is interesting I’ll keep trying the fun see how it goes alright so now it’s Thursday I’m gonna try Opinion Outpost again see if we can get anything okay I found one so it’s only five minutes so what time did you watch TV yesterday which television stations do you watch so that little preliminary survey took like five minutes and now I can earn 5 points if I take another 10 minute survey but now I just have to select if me or any of my roommates have purchased any of this stuff replacement toothbrush heads I think it purchased like a brush so basically when you do the math five points is only fifty cents so I only got 50 cents in this eight minute survey doesn’t seem worth it to me I don’t know I’ve now been on this Opinion Outpost website for like a half-hour and gotten 50 cents alright so now it’s Friday and I’m just gonna go over the experience of this is it worth it so on Opinion Outpost i have 57 points I did seven total surveys and some of those weren’t complete somewhere like you didn’t match so 57 points pretty much translates to 5 dollars and 70 cents so let’s see what we can redeem this for so you can redeem it for PayPal cash but you have to have a hundred points Amazon giftcard I basically earned $5 and I definitely spent over an hour doing this I probably spent at least two hours maybe more taking these surveys so that is a terrible wage out really wait so that’s like 250 an hour like that’s so bad so I’ll redeem the Amazon giftcard just to check and see like if this is for real because there’s always that chance this is all a scam and like it’s not next onto swagbucks the other one that we tried halfway through the week I think swag bucks gives you more of an opportunity to earn points but their points are worth so much less that I decided early on it wasn’t worth it so I got 15 swag bucks which is basically 15 cents and obviously you can’t get anything with that okay no you can do charity donation so we’ll donate to the Humane Society this is what we’re gonna do with it 15 swag bucks donate the actual surveys though I feel like are not worth it you can get more for your time on Opinion Outpost wag bucks I would only use it for the cash back like you can play games and earn if you shop online you can earn you know so if you guys want to try it out I’ll link them down below oh swag bucks you only need to be like 13 to sign up so I think it’s really good actually if you aren’t old enough to get a job like if you’re 13 then you can make like a little bit of money from this but then once you’re at the age to get a job it just seems like you’re spending so much time for like not very much I so comment below like if there’s other sites that are better than these two that you know of or anything like that I’m very interested to see haven’t anyone else’s experience on this also you guys this is a part of my series of testing weird ways to make money online so if you haven’t seen the other ones go check them out I have tried walking dogs on a dog walking app I’ve tried flip I tried flipping clothes and I’m currently in the process of testing sweat coins which a bunch you guys commented to try yeah okay I think that’s it for this video again let me know if you tried any of them below and this video a like or dislike if you didn’t like it give it a like if you liked it and whatever if you didn’t yeah just like it I don’t care okay I will see you guys in my next video bye [Music]


[Music] hey guys welcome to my channel I hope you up all well I am very excited today I really wanted to do this video for a while last year I actually did a video on how not to go broke and to save money I’m gonna link that below because I really feel like it’s still super valuable but today I wanted to give you guys some tips and tricks for making money online because I know it is hard out here sometimes and I know not everyone has a job and I know that sometimes you just need to make some extra cash flow for the weekend and I feel like money something that a lot of people don’t really like to talk about I feel like it’s a little bit of a trick to kind of let those that are in the know keep known but people who don’t know are never allowed to know and I don’t think it’s fair and I think we should all eat and I think we should all grow and I think we should all be open to opportunity and information is power so today I’m gonna share what I know about making money on the internet that anybody and everybody can do so number one it’s YouTube as you can see I am a YouTube creator and I am able to make a living doing this now obviously I have quite a few subscribers we thank God but anybody can start a YouTube channel you do not need money to start a YouTube channel you do not need a network or a special account to start a YouTube channel all you need is a camera and some I DS if you’ve got any form of ideas that you feel like you want to share with the world YouTube is a great way to monetize that when I started on YouTube almost over five years ago I never made a single penny because there was no form of monetization for three years I did youtube without making any earnings but I was passionate about it so I do think it’s really important that if you are going to start a YouTube channel make sure it’s not just about making money because it’s not a quick moneymaker but it’s maybe about sharing your passions but you can definitely do that how it works when it comes to monetization is literally you make videos and there are ads that run against your videos the more people that watch your videos the more money you make on your ads it’s as simple as that you to share the money with Google I believe an Adsense and then you get a share of that money as well you can get popular videos by doing stuff that is trending like celebrity gossip or celebrity news or breaking news from wherever you are in the world as well as doing videos on products that you like maybe entertaining people what will happen is that you will have a channel and YouTube will say you I believe you’re actually able to monetize straight away when I started you had to have like two thousand views or something before you can monetize which is what I never monetize for so long but you can monetize straight away and what you’ll see is when you reach over 60 pounds you’ll begin to receive money into your bank account that you set up where your adsense account if you want more information on that you can Google Adsense and how it actually works and create yourself an adsense account after that it’s also blogging and a writing content similar to YouTube in that is you’re producing your own content based on information writing a blog is a great way to also do that and the same mechanism is Adsense as well if you write content that is relevant then you also get ads that come up beside your blog besides your written content or images and you’ll be able to make money if you want to promote that stuff then social media is a great way to do that so another way to make money is affiliate linking if there is a website that you like or a product that you like online you can use sites such as Skimlinks rewards style and I believe this one could add Network I can’t quite remember and what happens is that every time someone buys from that link it might be your auntie it might be your friend it might be your followers you are able to make a small Commission on that link now a lot of people do this on Twitter and for instance I also will say I buy this necklace from necklace from Urban Outfitters and I will share a link with you that is an affiliate link so that I make you know 20 P on you buying the necklace but if I get 20 people make doing that then how much money did I make was my calculations 20 P times 24 pounds for parents yeah I’ll make four pounds on that so I know that sounds it’s not that much money but it can actually build up you can link electronics you can link home where there’s so many things that you can link and if you like searching the web for really nice and cool product and you want to share that with your friends or your family or your social network then you can definitely do it however I wouldn’t advise just putting links out and saying buy this link I think it has to be links that are associated to what you do or what your friends and your family actually want to see from you usually a lot of these accounts work by your threshold and but I think anyone can set it up if you have a blog or an email address and then they will sign you up to their network and you will be able to log in and start sharing your links of your friends and your followers so after that if you want to make money it’s all about selling your skill if you are good at something you should try and make money on it there are sites that I like such as people per hour this is a site that I go to all the time when I’m looking for a graphic designer when I’m looking for an editor when I want a logo made or a banner made I go on to then I’ll say graphic designer and lots of people around the world are sharing their skills they’re able to make money from the comfort of their own home by providing me a service based on what they actually know how to do I’ve actually seen there are people can buy an hourly of a guy who looks like mr. t and he says happy birthday so you did it or whatever he sells that for a hundred and fifty pounds and we’ll say happy birthday Michael because he looks like mr. t if you are good at writing if you’re good at taking photos if you are good at Photoshop people are out there looking for your skills and looking for your services you can make some money while doing it and people per hour is just one of the sites that I know that does that and there may be many others and I’m also going to link everything in the description bar below so that you guys have some good insight into it so next if you can create a product it is a great way to make some money I’ve told you guys this story many times but is one of the ways that I made money when I was a teen I used to braid hair at lunchtime I myself like leave school like ten pounds each day there’s like 40 pounds a week and for a thirteen-year-old that’s a lot of money so if you have a product or a skill or something that you can sell to friends and family or to a community then make some money on it you don’t need to make 5,000 pounds every day you can make 50 pounds or 10 pounds or 5 pounds but it all adds up another site that I really like is teespring if you have a design you can create a design on teespring and then you can um sell that design so I’m thinking about doing t-shirt as I I don’t want the fuss of packaging it and sending it and doing it all myself I might just use teespring to do it so you also probably want to have like a closet clear out I’m sure you know of a bunch of stuff that you’ve got in your house or in your closet that you’re not even using anymore go through have a clear out and sell it online the pop is an app that I really like for selling clothes it’s for fashion-forward people bloggers and all that kind of stuff they’re forever on there selling stuff selling their old clothes or swapping it out so finally you can also take online surveys there are lots of different survey companies out there where people want your opinion one of the survey companies that I have talked about many times is Opinion Outpost basically all it is is companies and brands such as Amazon or Apple or I don’t know t-mobile or something lots of these different brands want to know your opinion on their product or their services and you can do this from the comfort of your bed at home basically fill in a form say how many times you use your phone a day and you can make money while doing it now somewhere like Opinion Outpost they give you vouchers gift cards coupons they also have a quarterly prize draw of $10,000 as well and it is free to join up and you can receive an email into your gmail surveys they’re in great way to make it a little bit of extra money online if you’re just like I’m sitting at home rather than wasting time on tumblr or Twitter you can be making money okay so glass I really hoped you enjoyed that video and it gave you some ideas on how to actually make some money online I know it is hard out there and I know that a lot of people don’t share this information and I have no problem sharing I think sharing is caring or need to blow it and develop and I’m definitely here for like giving all the information I have I’m also gonna be doing my live chat today I’m so excited about it it’s at 8 o’clock tonight I’m gonna link it below and I don’t know we’re gonna talk about so Nev a comment if there’s anything you know you want to talk about let me know I’m going to do it but I’m gonna see if this can be a regular thing so thank you for watching guys and I’ll see you all later [Music]

Making Money Online, Surveys and Payment Proof 2017 | Carly

hi everybody welcome to the video today um today’s video is a little different from what I have been doing but I just wanted to share this with everybody because I think it’s really awesome um lately I have been taking online surveys way more often than usual because I found a really really great site that pays pretty well for a survey site okay and they also have like payment options you can get like 200 different kinds of gift cards they have cash options which are PayPal direct deposit or a check of course and since I was a little nervous the first time I actually had them send me a check you know cuz I had physical proof to show you guys you know so the name of the site is called insta GC I’ve been on there for a couple of years now but I really didn’t start actually using site until recently like over Christmas time um and I actually got to check a payment from one survey one survey was worth $30 I’m going to show you that check in a second but I just wanted to talk about the site real quick so you know what you’re getting into if you go and try it okay it’s free to sign up first of all second of all it’s not a get-rich-quick type of thing you’re not gonna make thousands of dollars you know you’re gonna make little bits of money like um let’s say I do about five surveys every day for seven days I would probably earn anywhere from 25 to 50 bucks you know it’s not going to be tons and tons of money so don’t go into it thinking you know each survey is gonna be worth $30 or $50 that’s not really how they work um on this particular site each survey you see in the list actually has an estimated time so you’re not going to end up sitting there taking a survey for like an hour and only get paid 20 cents you know it’s not going to be like that you’re gonna know how long it’s going to take you to take the survey and how much you’re getting paid before you even click to go to the survey okay and most of the time the surveys range from 50 cents to $1 per survey and they’re usually about 15 to 20 minutes long so if you really think about it the amount of surveys that they have on there every day you could make a lot of money if you put a lot of time into it but for me I don’t have tons and tons of time um so I usually spend about an hour two hours on there you know just in my free time while I’m not doing anything else so why not make a little money right okay well here is the check I’m going to show you the tab which is actually it says right here the survey company which this is a company that’s affiliated with the site I use um a lot of their surveys show up on there um I’m just going to put my finger over my information show you so you can see there is my name okay and then there is the amount right there all right you can see the dates everything I just got this in the mail today all right so there and there there’s my wonderful thirty dollar check and again that was from only one survey so you get lucky sometimes you find surveys on there that are worth a lot more than the twenty five cent 50 cent ones um but that’s not all the time I mean you got a check you got a check back once in a while um and you’ll be able to find those like I said I got lucky finding this one and I’m always checking I go on there at least once a day just to see what’s available in the little survey tab and once in a while they have won five dollars ten dollars and they’re usually only like 15 to 20 minutes long I mean you got 20 minutes why not make a dollar you know and it’s just it’s just fun I’m kind of getting addicted to it so I hope that I kind of gave you a little insight to what this site is about if not if you have any more questions feel free to leave me some comments um ask me anything you want to ask me regarding survey sites because I have been to almost all of them and this one is probably the best one that I have found um yeah that’s about it so thanks for watching today don’t forget to subscribe and bye
