Along with completing surveys another commonly good way to make money is by referring other people.
This is because if used effectively they can provide a good passive income once you’ve built up a good amount of referrals on a survey site.
When you refer people to survey sites, and they sign up, you will then receive a commission.
There are two types of ways that you can get paid for referrals on a survey site.
- You can get paid one off payments each time a referral signs up
- You can get paid a percentage of all the earnings while there on the site
Every survey sites referral system works slightly different. The likes of Swagbucks, for example, pay you 10% of all the referrals you refer to the site.
Whereas with a site like Cashcrate not only do they give you 20% of all your referrals earnings but they also give you $3 every time a referral earns $10.
Today I’d like to show you 3 of the most efficient ways to go about getting referrals and what I have had success with. These are also ways I have used to generate 100's of referrals to different survey sites.
1. Starting A Blog
Starting a blog is one of the most efficient ways to go about getting referrals.
The great thing about this method is that once you have everything setup and your blog is up and running; you will be able to gain as many referrals as you like as long as you are getting enough traffic to your site.
How this works is that when you start up a blog, you will then be able to get visitors to your blog. From there on they will then be able to sign up for the survey site that you recommended.
Let’s say you want to get more referrals on Vindale Research where you get paid $5 a referral; you would make then make a post on your blog showing your visitors and review of the site. You would talk in the blog on whats the sites about and how you can earn money using the site.
After writing the review, you can then place referral links on the blog so that people can then use them to go and sign up for the survey site.
This is the most effective way in my opinion of the three as this can really help you get referrals in the long run. If you would like to create a website and make your own blog for free have a look at my #1 recommended method for making money
2.Sharing Your Link On Social Media
Sharing your links around on social media is a great way to get referrals.
When you share your links on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ all your fans, followers and friends will see the post and most likely at least check the site out.
When I share posts on social media, I give a brief description of what the survey site offers so that my followers know exactly what they are going to gain from clicking on your links.
I would recommend making a new social media account to share links out and post about anything making money related.
By doing that, you can build a following of people who are interested in making money online. So that every time you post on social media you know that the links are reaching a targeted audience.
3.Online Discussions and Forums
Many people are asking questions each day about money related things, so if you can find a question that someone’s asked the community like ‘What survey sites do you recommend’.
You can then comment on the question and suggest a site for them to use with a brief description of it.
By doing this, you will gain a good number of referrals as loads of people visit these sites each day.
Most likely the person who asked the question will try the survey site that you suggested out and as well as that person who come across the question will see your link.
This is a good method as these sites gets quite a lot of traffic each day.
Those are some of my favourite ways to get referrals on survey sites.
This was a requested post that I have had people ask me about so if you are wondering what are the best ways then hopefully this post was helpful to you.
