If you are like millions of others who are seeking for ways to make money online, chances are you have seen the hundreds of advertisements saying you can Get Paid For Answering Surveys. While some take advantage of this opportunity right away, a good amount of people look at it as nothing more than just another scam. However, people don’t realize that it is possible to Get Paid To Answer Surveys Online; it just varies on how much you make.
There are some ads that will claim that you can make up to $250 per hour just to take surveys. While this is slightly true, the catch is that very few studies and surveys will pay you $250. A majority of the surveys you will take will make you $2 to $75.
When you begin looking for paid surveys online you will notice that there are a couple different kinds, paid survey directories and actual paid survey companies. Paid survey companies are actual companies that send you the surveys to take, along with the compensation for completed surveys. After signing up with the company, every time a survey is sent out you will be notified by email about it along with how much you will make for it and how long approximately it will take you to complete it.
The other kind of paid surveys online, paid survey directories, simply provide directories of paid survey companies. There are a number of paid survey directories, but most are not free. Because of the fee, most people find it unnecessary to pay for something that you can get for free through paid survey companies. While this is somewhat true, however, it is MUCH LESS HASSEL to sign up with the directories rather than the companies them selves as you will have all your links, addresses, tools and especially help and support located in one place.
If you are looking to make a lot of money (more than 4000 usd a month) while Get Paid To Answer Surveys Online, you may want to reconsider your options. While you can make a decent amount of money for taking surveys online, it most certainly will not be enough for a full time jobs income. However, there are ways to increase the amount you make:
The simplest way to put it is the more surveys you sign up with, the more money you are going to make. Most paid survey companies you sign up with will only send you a few surveys per month. Therefore, by signing up for several paid survey companies, or Paid Survey Directories, you will receive a few surveys from each company or directory and enhance the amount of money you can make. The top earners sign up to all the best Paid Survey Directories and then just wait for the surveys to arrive. This way you can be able to take many surveys each day and actually make a good extra income from it. Top earners easily make upto 3000 usd or more a month taking surveys online so it is absolutely possible for YOU too!
Last Year we reasearched more 147 Online Survey Companies and from all of these companies we can only recommend 4! We Strongly Recommend these -- NO HYPE -- companies if you want to Get Paid To Answer Surveys Online:
Maximum Paid Survey
Survey Income System
Paid Surveys Online
These companies have proven to deliver what they promise and to always provide true and accurate information.
While it may seem like just another internet scam, it is possible to Get Paid To Answer Surveys Online. You just have to realize that realistically you will only make around $20-75 per hour, not the $250 per hour that some companies like to perceive. However, when participating in bigger surveys or discussion groups a $250 is often possible. Just remember, the more surveys you sign up with the more money you are setting yourself up for.

Affiliate Project X - Review: How To Make 1000 USD a Day!
Earlier this fall there were a lot of hype around a new e-book by Chris McNeeney called "Affiliate Project X". Maybe you have heard of it? If not you have most likely been living in a basement for the last months, or you are new to affiliate marketing. In either case, I will give you my honest opinion on this e-book in this review.
Chris (the author) is a mastermind when it comes to affiliate marketing and one of those so-called “gurus” that I have followed for a few years now. So far, none of his products has let me down. But is this book living up to the hype or is it just another over hyped, over priced junk product?
What was not so good about this book?
Some of the information was also contained in Adwords Miracle, which is a product I really found to be a decent e-book for affiliate marketers.
It looks like some of the techniques promoted can be a violation to the ClickBank terms of service. I am not 100% sure about that, though, and I do not really think ClickBank would bother much with it either.
The book outlines a way of cloaking affiliate links that has a few drawbacks. The code has been known not to work in placing cookies on people's computers, meaning the marketer will be losing the commission. The problem of affiliate cloaking has been notified and as far as I know, it has been fixed in the latest edition.
I have also seen people complain about this being old information one can find on the internet for free etc, but I do not fully agree to that. I can agree to that some of it is old news, but after all most info can be found for free if you seek well enough, right?
So... Is it any good, then...?
So does it really matter if some of the information is old news for the seasoned marketer? NO! Does the tips and tricks explained in Affiliate Project X work? YES, they do, they have done so for ages and they will continue to work for years and years to come. Sure, some of the players will change, and small changes will apply but the basics of what is thought in this e-book will continue to work for ages to come. Not only will it help the seasoned marketer, but this book is a really great tool for newbies as well. These are all tried and true techniques that have made my life much easier, that is for sure.
I have wasted a lot of money on way too many products teaching one “how to make money” technique after another, and most of them have been plain rubbish. Affiliate Project X is a diamond in the dust, if you ask me, and it is worth every penny.
It claims on the sales page that you can make thousands of dollars a day following the guidelines of this e-book. While that is not impossible, it may give some people false hopes. New internet marketers should rather aim at making 20 bucks a day and then increase their profit over time. I am currently making 50-100 dollars a day, every day of the month, by following the teachings of this book. That is 2-3000 USD a month, folks! This book has its drawbacks, as outlined above, but the pros of this book beat the cons, without doubt, as the techniques are so time-tested and powerful.
It is all up to you whether you whish to check Affiliate Project X out further or not, and if you are among those who always want to know the “hottest” ways to earn money, maybe you won’t. If you are anything like me, however, and do not want to re-invent the wheel when there already are perfect and time-tested methods that are proven to bring in autopilot income over and over again, then you should definitively check out Affiliate Project X!

I have been doing affiliate marketing for a few years now, and most of my sales have come from advertising on Google Adwords and similar advertising networks. I have never been fully satisfied with the results in terms of click through rates, cost per click and return on investment (ROI). The way I have done the writing of the Adwords campaigns have been based on the teachings of Brad Callen and his fantastic free e-book AdWords Made Easy which you can download from the link at the end of this article. While the ideas of his e-book are tried and tested and a good starting point for a rather inexperienced affiliate marketer like myself I felt it was not enough. I felt it missed something… My search for something better was on…
It was a warm summer morning, I recall, when I logged onto my computer as normal to find a mail from a friend of mine saying "Martin – you have to check this out". Since the mail actually came from a close friend, I opened it to find a letter saying that he had increased his sales and ROI by several hundred percents the last weeks because of a book he had read. Yeah, right, I said to my self and expected nothing more than an over hyped sales pitch when I clicked on the link at the bottom of the mail. And I was kind of right.
The sales page I was taken to was to the AdWords Miracle training course by Chris McNeeney.
"You're about to learn the "$300/day Adwords Secrets" that they don't want you to know about..."
Aha? Secrets? I think I have seen this kind of approach a gazillion times in the past and they have always been for over hyped, under-delivering, crap products.
So, to check out whether or not my friend was telling the truth or just trying to sell me a 97 dollar product for some quick cash, I went over to his house for coffee.
My surprise was big when he could actually show me the stats from ClickBank proving an incredible increase in sales the last few weeks, after implementing the strategies he had learned from the AdWords Miracle course. I went home but could not fall asleep. There was something bothering me… If my friend, who was a rather inexperienced online marketer, could increase his sales this much, how much more money could I earn if I followed this book?
I went out of bed, grabbed a coffee and turned on the computer. Five minutes or so later I was reading through the AdWords Miracle book. By 6:30 I had managed to go through over 100 pages and I was really eager for more. The book is about 200 pages and comes with almost an hour of training videos so I had to get some sleep before I could continue...
When all the information from the book started to sink in I felt really pleasantly surprised.
After countless new editions the book is now counting almost 100 more pages than the original and this book will actually show you how to go from broke to being the best paid man or woman in your neighbourhood. The author of this book doesn't claim to be a superstar "guru" or anything. He just deliver, right in your face, information and methods that are exactly the same he used him self to go from broke to getting paid several hundreds dollars a day.
I think there are some pages of this book that could have been removed and that only looks like fillers more or less, but the rest is brilliant.
This book will guide you all the way from the initial set up of your first adwords account to all the small smart tricks that makes the differece in affiliate marketing.
I've read a lot of books on Adwords, some free ones and some paid ones, but I've always felt that something was missing. This book filled up most of the "holes", maybe all of them actually, and as I progressed through the book I started to feel that my knowledge on pay-per-click advertising actually improved.
This book covers all the major issues such as daily budget,keyword lists, ad writing and inactive keywords. These are issues that are too often ignored by other Adwords book authors. Another great thing about this book is that AdWords Miracle is designed to work on Google Adwords so testing the claims is very easy. If you don't believe what is in the book, or have your doubts, just test it!
AdWords Miracle is full of real life examples which makes it even more interesting. If these people can make it in online affiliate marketing, so can you! They all started out small and many of them are now big timers generating thousands of dollars a day from adwords. Chris takes you by the hand a show you step by step how to use the different techniques but it doesn't stop there. He also actually tells you WHEN to use the different techniques. In other words: When The Timing Is Right! This is not something I can recall having read in any other Adwords course or e-book, and I've gone through most of them.
One of the greatest parts of the book is what the author refer to as the "Skimming Method". Its one of those ideas you see and think why didn't I think of that! Actually, it seems like no other have thought of that either as I've never read about it before. It is a great idea that actually can take you from ZERO to 300 usd a day just by following some simple steps. I believe that this part, which is about 10 pages or so, actually could be sold a seperate book it self. That's how good it is!
To Sum It All Up...
Some of the information found in the Adwords Miracle is stuff I've read before, but I've never before seen such a complete system on how to totally RULE ADWORDS! It's not the cheapest book on the suject either, but in my opinion, it is the absolute best guide to adwords on the market today.DEFINITELY.
Price: 97 USD
Pages: Aproximately 200 + 50 minutes of Video.
Level: Good for both beginners and experienced Adwords users.
Compared to other books on the subject: Best Value For Money!
Here is the free e-book I promised you as well - Not as good as The Adwords Miracle, but still....:
