Without a doubt, the best way to make money on survey sites is to get referrals. If you want to make as much money as possible, start off by only referring people to Cashcrate. Cashcrate has the best referral program out there and it’s where you’ll make a majority of your money if you choose to refer. To start off, you get 20% of what your referrals make and 10% of what their referrals make. As you get more referrals and move up in ranks, you can get 30% of what your referrals get and 20% of what their referrals make. Also, you get a $3 bonus once when of your referrals earns $10 or more. Once you get to 50 active referrals, you get a $1 bonus for each active referral you get. These $1 bonuses are the key to making a lot of money with Cashcrate’s referral system. There are members that make over $1000 a month from the referral system, and there are even a few people who have made over $2000 in a month. This is rare and will only happen if you are amazing at referring people, but I’m just letting you know it can happen. I was never that good at referring people, but I still had several months of $150-300 checks, which was awesome for a high school part-time job. It sure beat working at a fast food joint.
Now here’s the real question, how do I get referrals? Getting referrals and making serious money online is so much easier said than done, but here are a few tips to help you out:
1. Make a blog/website. This is the best way to get massive amounts of referrals and make money from home, if you’re good at promoting it.
2. Flyers. Flyers will probably not get you too many referrals, not to mention you have to spend money to print them and spend time giving them out to people. However, I started getting referrals this way and did pretty well. I put up flyers with a tab at the bottom to rip off at public libraries, city hall, schools, landromats, and other places that had bulletin boards.
3. Friends and family. This obviously won’t get you a lot of referrals, but it’s super easy to do. Whenever you’re with a family member or friend, show them the site and have them sign up under you. You can even show them how to do the offers and can turn them into very profitable members of their own. Even though I only got a few friends to sign up under me, they actually made more money than any of my other thousands of referrals I got online. It’s much easier to convince a friend or family member that survey sites are legit than a stranger over the Internet.
These are just a few ideas that are almost guaranteed to get you referrals. I’ll talk about places to promote your blog/website later.
