What benefits are there for doing surveys online?

Currently, I am 18 y/o student and would like to earn some sideline income and came across surveys which gives you some either cash or other benefits. I would like to know which survey website is safe to do, what can I expect when I start doing these surveys, cos I've been quite wary of these surveys and unsure whether I should try. E.g Survey Compare, etc

    Focus groups would be one. I have done a few out of curiosity and they compensate anything from $50-$150 for an hour of your time. You will need to know about the topic being discussed, and provide your opinions.

    The online survey platforms could pay, but it's a slow grind of answering surveys. Look out for ones like ApiaryBuzz, which actually gave $20 of Capitaland vouchers upon sign-ups! This was one of the rare occasions of getting vouchers pre answering surveys.

    Most of the surveys online are clickbait to get your personal details. I would very much recommend you to do mystery shopping instead. Mystery shopping requires you to make time to go to physical shops to do observation with a fix set of SOP but at least it gives you real money and isn't collecting your person details for spamming purposes.

    Otherwise, consider specific panel surveys. Make sure to Google the companies first before passing over your personal data.

    Hope this helps and please upvote me if you find the information useful.

      Hi, mystery shopping is when you sign up as as a mystery shopper. Which means you act like a customer to check on service levels and proficiency of the clients, that the agency handles. SOP = standard operating procedures. Basically you are to go through a online learning to know what to do and what to ask while at the stores. By taking some pictures and asking the questions you can either receive free meals (capped of course or from a specific selection) and or reimbursement.

      Specific panel surveys are when you sign up for surveying companies; and they'd look into your expertise; age; industry etc. These panels are customized and specific to say; a certain age group or industry.
