1. These survey companies are all labor intensive and low paying. Survey Compare is no different. I find them mind numbing and would rather take a nap than spend my time making pennies.

    Why in the world would someone want to spend their life earning pennies for their time, when they could build a real, honest to goodness business online that pays them a full time income?

    Your #1 Recommendation is the way to go.

    1. Hi Horton! Thanks for your comment! Most people that I know have no idea about the possibility to create an online business and be their own boss. I think that’s the reason they keep wasting time on such activities because they are highly promoted on renowned websites. If you Google “make money online” you will see the majority of websites will lead to online surveys one way or another. These companies need opinions from a large group of people so it is not surprising. However, the internet marketing is growing and people are becoming aware of the possibility to earn generous commissions adding up to thousands of dollars per month.

  2. Hello, Stefan,
    Thank you very much for such an honest review, is Survey Compare a Scam or a Legitimate Website?
    From what I just read there, trying to make money with online survey is a waste of time in my opinion.
    What I do not understand is why they don’t pay a bit more and make it something that would be compelling. I bet that it would still be a good deal for them, don’t you think?

    1. Hi Caito! They don’t pay more because they find plenty of panelists to fill up the surveys for that low payments. So, the have everything to lose increasing the payments. It is frustrating for those who need extra cash and don’t know another legitimate opportunity to make money online. All the bestStefan

  3. Hey Stefan,

    I agree with you and would give it a low score. I have tried this before in the past and I think that it is annoying. It take a lot of your useful time to only just make a few bucks.

    I think it is not for me because I do not have time to waste doing this type of stuff. Thank you for the review!

    1. Hi Emmanuel, thanks for your opinion. Most people get tired of online surveys and give up after some time. I was one of them. When I discovered the potential of affiliate marketing, I put my heart and soul into it and forgot about surveys. Affiliate marketing can earn me a full time income whereas online surveys will hardly ever get me over $100 per month. Too much time wasted for very little! Not for me anymore…

  4. hello stefan … will i be qualified for the online surveys? Im from the Philippiines and really needs an income no matter how low the pay is. But if converted to Phil peso your payment it would be better than no income at all…thanks

  5. hi stefan
    i would like to ask you about your number 1 recommendation. is this available here in Philippines? thank you.

    1. Hi Chris, WA is available in Philippines but you have to go premium from the beginning. It’s worth the investment for the potential an online business offers.
      All the best


  6. Hi Stefan,

    Thanks for the advice. Do you only write on your website about organic health products, or do you also sell the products to customers?

    1. Hi Nana, you’re welcome! You just write product reviews and informational articles. It can be on any topic you want, not only health products. Healthy product is just one niche among thousands!

      In affiliate marketing, you don’t deal with physical products. You just insert specific links (affiliate links) on your articles, and if people click on it and buy the product through the merchant’s site, you get a commmission.

      Your job is to write helpful articles and help people make better purchase decisions. It’s not that complicated, but you might want to follow a step by step tutorial that will help you chose your niche and build your site.

      Wealthy Affiliate is my top recommendation to learn and the first 10 lessons are 100% free!

      That’s the platform that helped me get started in affiliate marketing. Their training really works for those who put in the time and effort into their businesses.

      I hope this helps

  7. Ill follow your advice and try. What do you think of divveesocial an American company based in Utah.

    1. Hi Tessie, I haven’t heard about it. But I checked their website today and saw that the joining page was not working. I will keep note of this one and write a review as soon as they allow me to create an account.
      Thanks for that!

      All the best

  8. Hello Stefan,

    I registered with WA a couple of years ago, I paid 2,000 Philippine Pesos just to be a member. I don’t know what to do next after paying. My auntie did the same thing, she was given a project to work on but after sending her work, she didn’t received any amount from WA. I don’t know how this works but what would you recommend?

    1. Hi Hope, you should have followed the certification lessons and built your website in a niche of your choice. You won’t get paid by WA if you don’t promote WA on your website, but it’s up to your promote WA or not. The idea is to choose a niche your are passionate about and promote the products you think your audience will benefit from. Setting up a website is quick, but the challenge is attracting a large audience to it, that’s why you need to keep adding helpful content until you build an authoritative site. Wealthy Affiliate is an awesome training community and they will help you grow your website the right way. I highly recommend it!

  9. Wow see that’s what I think a lot of companies fail to mention. That while yeah you can make money, it’s just going to take a really really long time. By that point you might as well have done something else. Now there are some good ones out there, but for the most part they’re pretty hard to come by. Do you think there are any good ones out there? Genuinely curious.

    1. I agree, Jasmere. There are many great alternatives to Survey Compare out there such as Prizerebel, Swagbucks, and Cashcrate. For a better way to make money online, I high recommend affiliate marketing through blogging and/or vlogging. When you create content for the internet and attract an audience, it’s possible to earn much more in return for your time and effort. In fact, there are many people making a living out of this strategy.
      If you are interested in that, click here and check out this free step by step course. In my opinion, it’s the best place to get started!
      I hope this helps.


  10. I’m not a big fan of survey sites, frankly because you make pennies for hours of work. Don’t get me wrong though, they are good for short term money and that’s it. You bring up some great points about creating a more passive income flow with Wealthy Affiliate. Having a site that works for YOU 24 hours a day, 7 days a week puts any type of short term money to shame in my opinion. Great work on the article, keep it up.

    1. You’re right Brandon. Nothing compares to making a passive income online. Work hard now and get awesome rewards in the future. Affiliate marketing is one of the best online revenue strategies for sure.

  11. Great post. I was checking continuously this blog and I’m
    impressed! Very useful information specifically the last
    part 🙂 I care for such info much. I was seeking this certain info for a long time.
    Thank you and best of luck.

  12. Hi Stefan,

    very nice site and detailed reviews.

    I think that making money with surveys is a very difficult task. You will need to fill many surveys to make some little money.

    Building authority online, offering real successful business, joining big affiliate companies, is after my opinion better way to go, especially if you are starting online marketing and want to make some substantial money.

    Thanks for sharing your reviews. Very nice article. Keep up the good work.

    1. Hi Igor, I couldn’t agree more with you. I wish I had started my online business earlier.
      Thanks for your comment!

  13. I am a Nigerian in Nigeria. Please, can I do affiliate marketing in Nigeria successfully. I am asking because I was informed sometime ago that: being in Nigeria I wouldn’t be able to get my earning by any means.


  14. Yes I really have to say thank you Mr Stefan. God bless you.
    I gained much wisdom from your review and advice
    Talk to you later sir
