Once I've joined Survey Absolute, will I have to pay you anything more than the initial membership fee?

No, the only charge you will ever pay us is the Platinum membership fee, which gives you full access to our site. Once you have access to our survey database, it will be up to you to register with as many of the survey companies as possible. The more survey companies you register with the more paid surveys you will qualify for. Do NOT expect to simply pay a membership fee to Survey Absolute and then be flooded with paid surveys. We do not send paid surveys at all - we only provide you with the tools to get registered with the companies who do. Don't expect something for nothing - you're going to have to do your part, and that means sitting down and registering with as many of the paid survey companies we have listed in our database as possible. The bad news is that this is time consuming and boring. The good news is that many of these market research companies will actually pay you just for registering with them - even before they start sending you paid surveys. And once you have registered with them (preferably with all the ones on the entire survey database) then you will start recieving surveys and other paid market research based on your demographic. Do NOT expect to only register with 5 or 10 of the companies and then make $50,000 every month in paid surveys. We have hundreds of different market research companies listed and you have to do your part and register with as many of them as you qualify for if you want to start making real income from this.


Can I succeed at this business?

If you are not afraid to work, the answer is an emphatic YES!

This business is based on people that are willing to work. The more effort one puts into the business the greater the reward. There are many entrepreneurs out there that are making a very successful career form the Survey Business.

If you want to make $30,000.00+ per year while wearing your pajamas, you can do it in this business. Our job is to bring you the best sites on the internet to work with. We’ve done that. Now it’s your turn…


What about the paid survey companies listed in your database? Will I have to pay them anything for registering?


The short answer is no.

You can join every single company on our website, and it won’t cost you a penny, but if the company offers a bonus of some sort, they may expect something else from you. That something else could be a purchase, or a subscription to a magazine, or any of many other alternatives, including more effort. Remember there is seldom a case where you will get something for nothing. It really is up to you to decide if what the company wants is worth your time and effort.


What is a Focus Group?

Focus groups are collections of people fitting certain demographics who communicate their opinions on a certain subject and are monitored/watched by market research companies to see what opinions are formed. It's very similar to a discussion group, and most focus groups are either conducted by phone or online chat rooms.


Is this for real? Why would anyone pay me for filling out surveys and giving my opinion?

In the U.S. alone, companies spend over $250 Billion (that's not misspelled - Billion with a 'B') every single year trying to convince consumers to buy their products and services. While most of this is spent on advertising, a good deal of this money is spent on market research - trying to understand how people think and shop they way they do, and how to influence those buying decisions. Companies need feedback, and for that reason they are more than willing to pay you for your opinion. Here's a real-world example: A 30 second commercial airing during the Superbowl costs over 2 Million Dollars. That's the cost of the airtime and doesn't include the costs of putting the commercial together, filming it, and trying to make sure it's perfect in every way possible before putting it on the air. If a company is going to spend 2 Million Dollars to show a commercial, you can bet your bottom dollar that they'll happily spend $10,000 in market research on that same commercial before it ever airs, showing it to various paid focus groups and testing it's effectiveness, refining it and doing everything possible to make sure that when it does air it will be the best commercial possible. That's just one example of why companies place extreme value on the opinions and attitudes of consumers from every walk of life, and why they are more than willing to pay you money for taking surveys to give them that information.


How long are the surveys/focus groups? What kinds of questions do they ask?

Depends on the survey. Some are longer than others (and usually the longer the survey, the more compensation is paid). Some surveys are as short as 5 minutes, some are as long as 30 minutes. Focus groups generally take longer, usually taking a half hour or more of participation. The kinds of questions asked vary widely depending on what market/product is being researched.


Do I have to have a special computer to do this?

Nope. All you have to have to do this is a computer with internet access (which you must already have to be reading this), a phone, and a physical address to which the paid survey companies can mail your checks.


What about the special offer to make $285.50 on the first day of joining? Is that for real?

Absolutely for real. It's our way of giving back to our members. Join us and see for yourself.


What's the deal with the $10.00 Survey Challenge? How does that work?

The $10.00 Survey Challenge is another special offer we extend exclusively to Survey Absolute members. We actually pay $10 to any member who takes this challenge and signs up to at least 20 of the paid survey sites we have in the Survey Challenge. This is our way of encouraging members to start registering. Keep in mind our $10.00 challenge is dependent on you joining, let me say that again, JOINING 20 of the 25 companies on the challenge page. It costs you absolutely nothing to join those companies, and you make $10.00 that we pay you within 48 hours after we approve your claim. We personally guarantee that. A little work is worth $10.00. That is no SCAM, Just do it…


I'm pretty busy - how much time am I going to have devote to this?

One of the best advantages to doing paid surveys for money is that you get to decide how much time you want to devote to it. Obviously the more surveys you do, the more money you'll make, but you alone decide when you work and how much time you devote to it.


I don't live in the U.S. Can I still participate?

Yes, in fact there are a large number of paid survey and market research companies that are international in scope. Anyone who lives in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Europe, or the United States will find plenty of paid survey sites in our database that are seeking participants in their area.


Is Survey Absolute a paid survey company?

No, Survey Absolute is not a paid survey or market research company. We are a website dedicated to maintaining the definitive database of paid survey/market research websites and companies that offer market research for compensation. We do not conduct paid surveys ourselves, instead we offer our members a listing of companies who do.


Do I need to have a PayPal account?

No, it's not a necessity, but since many online market research companies prefer to pay using Paypal it's a good idea. Also if you take our $10.00 Survey Challenge the only way we can pay you is if you have a Paypal account. Fortunately having a Paypal account is very easy; all you need is an email address.

Is the membership fee recurring?

Absolutely not. The Platinum membership fee is a one-time charge, and there will never be any other fees, ever.


Why does Survey Absolute have a membership fee in the first place?

It costs us to pay our research team, maintain the website, and to advertise for it. We provide an excellent service and as a result feel it's only fair to charge for it. Most of all, although our membership fee is $49.97, through our special offers our members can earn over $200.00 immediately after joining the site, so in effect new members are gaining far more than they are spending to join.


How soon after joining can I start making money?

Within minutes after joining you'll have the opportunity to start registering with companies that will pay you money for surveys and other market research. The more companies you register with, the more paid survey invitations you'll get. Also, some of the market research companies in our database will pay you just for registering with them - so you'll be able to start earning money almost immediately.


What if taking paid surveys isn't for me? Can I get a refund on my membership fee?

Taking paid surveys isn't for everyone, and here at Survey Absolute we understand that. We offer a 100% refund to anyone who - within 56 days of first joining us - tries out our service and decides they don't want to continue.

We do ask that you give it a fair try. We have assembled hundreds of market research companies in our database, and to be successful at this we strongly encourage members to register with as many of these companies as possible.

If you decide this line of work isn't for you, well that's fair enough. But if you haven't registered with any of the survey companies you haven't really given this business a fair chance.

We want to be very clear about our refund policy: to claim a 100% refund you must at least have registered with 20 of the top 30 paid survey companies in our database. We consider that the bare minimum you must do to give this business a fair try. All of these survey companies are free to join - we personally guarantee that none of the survey companies on our site are going to charge you a penny to join their company. If they do, report it to us and we'll take them off our site.

If you do register with 20 of the top 30 survey companies in our database, then you have done your part and given the paid survey business a fair try. If you then feel it isn't for you, we're happy to give a 100% refund.

If you don't think you can be bothered to register with at least 20 survey companies, please DON'T join our site - it would only be a waste of time for you and a waste of money for us (it costs us to process your membership). If you're not motivated enough to do that, you aren't cut out for this business and we wish you well in other endeavors.

Again, if registering for 20 different paid survey companies seems like too much work, we strongly encourage you not to join Survey Absolute.

Very few people who join Survey Absolute ever ask for a refund as our service is the best in our industry.

We are happy to give a 100% refund, but we expect you to do your part and register with at least 20 of the top 30 survey companies we have listed.
