Online Surveys for Teens
If you, as a parent, are sick and tired of your teen thinking of you as an infinite source of money you could consider teaching them how to earn money for themselves. No, you don’t have to get them a part time job at McDonald. There is enough work available on the internet which they can do from home.
One of the such opportunity is online surveys for teens, where teenagers can earn some extra money. This will also help them understand how difficult it is to earn money, and therefore, they will begin to value it as well. And since they will be working from home, these jobs won’t disrupt their school schedule or extra curricular activities.
In the last few years, the internet has really grown into a viable solution for market research. There are so many people that use the internet everyday and this has given survey companies a huge list of participants (and this includes teenagers). And one of the most important markets on the internet is teenagers. That is why many survey companies have set up independent survey panels that target only teens. Like adults, teenagers can make money by doing online surveys for cash.
In return for their opinion, teens can expect to be compensated kind of like (but not exactly like) with a real time job. And the best part is it’s very easy to start. All they need is to find a paid survey company, register themselves with their email ID and fill out their personal details including their like and dislikes. Remember, the more information they fill out, the more surveys they will gain access to. It may be a little difficult to find legitimate survey companies but if you go through online communities and forums, it is quite easy to find survey companies which are offering money to teens for their opinions.
It’s very important to ensure that your teen provides accurate information about him/her while signing up with these survey sites. Why? Providing incorrect information at the time of registering may result in them receiving surveys which they are not interested in or which they aren’t qualified to take. This leads to them answering a few questions in the survey and then being kicked out as they aren’t qualified. In such cases, neither are they paid for their time, nor are they compensated in any other way. This may cause unnecessary frustration which we all can do without.
Apart from finding the right companies, the rest is pretty simple. In short: filling out surveys is one of the best online jobs for teens. You don’t even need to motivate your teens too much as they are usually more than willing to provide their opinion on various topics. And if they are paid for their opinion, why would they need any motivation?
