The hours you keep do not always allow you to find good work and when you do, it takes you away from the things you need to be doing and want to be doing. One exception to this is survey taking online. Yes, you really can make additional money online and here is all that you need to do.
- Create A New Email Account (Optional)
This is an optional step but it is useful. By creating another email address using a free service like Yahoo, you can keep all of your survey work organized in one place. In addition, you can keep your regular email address from turning into a spam trap. You’d hate to lose that college email address to spam.
- Sign Up With Paypal
Many survey websites will pay you with paypal. You probably already have an account but if not, you will want to create one before you need to check out.
