Are you wondering, like I was a while back, whether you can make money completing online surveys with Survey Club?
Maybe you like the idea of earning a bit of extra monthly income from the internet and Survey Club is one of the options you’re currently considering.
I’ve tried Survey Club and this review is what I found out…hopefully it can save you some time.
Here’s the deal:
When you sign up with Survey Club you get access to many of the top survey companies through your subscription.
SurveyClub is a research recruitment platform that companies and organisations use to find out what consumers think about their products and services.
Name: Survey Club
Opportunity: Earn money completing online surveys
Price: Free to join
SurveyClub.com was founded in 2005 with the goal of helping people make some extra income participating in market research.
Joining Survey Club is a 6-step process:
- Complete the ‘Become A Member’ form to create a free SurveyClub account.
- Complete your profile; age, gender, marital status, education, income, etc.
- Survey Club then uses the information you provided to match you with available studies.
- ‘Make Money With Panels’ – select and register, Survey Club suggests at least three.
- You decide which studies you’d like to participate in.
- Once you’ve completed a survey, your SurveyClub rewards account will be credited.
Sounds great doesn’t it?..
…but what’s the real story?
A few days after joining up, I signed in and hit the Available Studies tab and saw that over 30 surveys were available.
A good start!
Well, not so much actually.
From the thirty or so Available Studies, more than ten were sign ups to other survey sites. I found this to be pretty annoying.
But, not to worry, that still left a fairly generous twenty surveys to start earning from.
Just one problem… I didn’t qualify for most of them…I didn’t qualify for twelve of them in fact.
Very frustratingly, it’s often when you are already a couple of minutes into a survey that you are screened out, resulting in quite a lot of wasted time.
I did eventually go on to complete a couple of surveys and I was credited promptly for these, so absolutely no complaints there. By this stage though, I was already pretty discouraged by the amount of time I’d spent to earn relatively little.
Over the next couple of weeks I gave Survey Club a few more tries and had a similar experience to this first time. Plenty of wasted time partially completing surveys only to be screened out a few minutes in.
My initial enthusiasm for trying to earn a bit of extra money each month with Survey Club was disappearing quickly.
Making money with Survey Club is definitely possible but you will need to invest a lot of your time in order to do so.
You will find yourself waiting for new surveys to become available, partially completing surveys only to be screened out a few minutes in, as well as completing some surveys in full.
I found waiting for new surveys to come in really frustrating.
Like most people would, I found partially completing surveys, only to then be screened out even more frustrating…you feel like you’re are just throwing your time away.
What really made up my mind as to whether I wanted to continue with Survey Club was this…
…I found completing the surveys in full that I did qualify for to be unbelievably boring. I mean really mind numbingly boring. So much so that I knew there was no way I could carry on with it.
A completely legitimate way to make money online but for me the trade-off between time/boredom and making relatively small amounts of money really wasn’t worth it, simply way too inefficient for my liking.
My Experience: 3/10
Recommendation: Definitely not for me.
