SurveysontheGo is one of the largest mobile research companies around with millions of consumers using it’s Surveys on the Go mobile app. Consumers are served short surveys, often while at places they shop. Users share opinions and insights with the company who sponsored the survey, and in return, they receive payment of typically a dollar or two upon completion of the survey. It is a fun convenient way to generate a little extra micro income while you have some spare time to use your phone. Corporate America also benefits when users complete surveys, because they use that data as market research to improve their products and increase profits!
Quick Summary: Surveys On The Go allows you earn money by completing surveys based on your interests or based on your location. Users complete surveys about their interests and habits, but often the survey is about market research, asking questions about how busy a store is or how many people they have staffing the checkout lines. Users earn small bits for completing surveys, and if they are not qualified for the survey, they earn a tiny reward to help grow your account. Not everyone is qualified for each survey, so the earning potential varies from person to person.
How It Works: Users download the app, sign up and create a basic profile before starting on surveys. Surveys become available for users, letting them earn rewards in the process. This is a straightforward process, with the only drawback being surveys that the user is not qualified for only offering a tiny reward - but they don’t take much time so it’s not too bad. Users also will receive real-time notifications for surveys as they become available, especially when the user is out shopping or visiting popular stores.
