How Much Is Your Opinion Really Worth?
Well that all depends on your age, where you live, if you are male or female, what income bracket you fall in, and your current career choice amongst other things. Market researchers call these items demographics and a lot of value is put into finding an adequate sample from all walks of people in order to successfully research new products and services, as well as retool existing ones. This is where you and I come in: Doing Paid Surveys.
If you like giving your opinion and being rewarded for doing so you will undoubtedly find the world of paid surveys, polls and mystery shopping of interest to you. Even more appealing is the fact that this type of research is now being done online. Yes, market researchers are rewarding people that both qualify and complete various surveys and research projects right from the convenience of their homes. This research is done mostly via email invitations and can include such things as testing new products out and doing follow-up surveys on how well those products faired.
So how do you go about finding these online research sites? SurveyMania.com has pioneered a free resource for those interested in doing paid surveys and online paid research. Founder Travis Bowman created the site after spending countless hours hunting for research companies online himself. “I realized how difficult it was to find online paid survey companies and know whether or not they are legitimate.” In this spirit SurveyMania.com was born, providing a growing resource of high paid quality market researchers all in one place. In addition to signing up for any paid survey panels that interest you on site you may also choose to register to become a free member of SurveyMania.com which means being notified, on occasion, of new research opportunities or companies interested in your opinion.

It is important to note that participation in any research is always your choice and should never cost you anything. Here are a few things to be aware of:
SurveyMania.com does not recommend joining any paid survey site that charges you for a “list” of survey companies.
Be wary of sites that guarantee you set monthly income for taking paid surveys. Doing research is not a substitute for a career.
True market research companies will not try to sell you any product or service as that would be a conflict of interest.
The rewards for qualification and completion of research projects vary and might include cash, free product trials, or entries in sweepstakes. Typically details are spelled out up front in the invitation you receive.
Sign up for as many paid market research panels as you would like. The more you sign up for the more potential opportunities you will have.
