Generally speaking, the team here at Work From Home Watchdog are not fans of paid surveys. Yes, they can generate some income online, but up until now we have found them to be time consuming, difficult to use, and most importantly, not very profitable.
So when we were asked to provide a review for a brand new survey site called PaidViewPoint.com, we were far from excited. Is it yet another complicated survey process with little in the way of earning potential? What follows might well surprise you.
The first thing that has to be said about this particular website is the general feel of it. In the past we have always found survey sites in particular to be cheap to look at, and difficult to navigate. That’s definitely not the case with PaidViewPoint.com because what you get here is a fresh looking platform that is actually simple to navigate and easy to use.
Now we all know that looks aren’t everything, so let’s take a closer look under the hood of Paid View Point and see if we can spot why this opportunity might be different from the rest. Remember that these are my own thoughts based on the fact that I have actually joined up (it’s free) and tried the system myself.
What there is to love about PaidViewPoint.com…
1) No getting kicked out half way through a survey!
It’s one of the most common complaints made about online surveys, and it’s perhaps one of the main reasons why survey sites generally have such a bad name. PaidViewPoint.com are keen to make it clear that if you take a survey, you will be allowed to complete it, and you will get paid for your time.
2) Your privacy really is respected.
If you’ve had experience with online surveys in the past it’s very likely that you yourself have had your personal details sold on (another popular complaint about other survey websites), and PaidViewPoint.com assure you that your details are totally safe by not requesting your full name and full home address.
3) PaidViewPoint.com has a solid pedigree
Created by the same team responsible for InstantCashSweepstakes.com (a US-only survey site), Paid View Point is built on the same principles and integrity as its sister site.
4) Worldwide acceptance into the program
With InstantCashSurveys.com restricting its service to US users only, it was necessary to have an alternative service that can be used by anyone, anywhere in the world. PaidViewPoint.com is that program.
5) You do actually earn real cash for completing surveys!
Really…there’s no junk or false promises here. When PaidViewPoint.com tell you how much you can earn, you really do earn that amount of money! It’s amazing to think that this point has to be justified in this way because a ‘paid survey’ should after all be a ‘paid survey’, yet anyone with previous experience will know that this is not always the case.
Paid View Point recognize this, and do everything they can to show what you are earning with each survey.
This leads nicely to my only real negative…
Earnings can be slow…initially.
Earlier I mentioned that survey sites generally require a lot of work to earn just a few dollars, but PaidViewPoint.com just about avoid this same downside with a very smart loyalty system.
Basically, the more surveys you take, the greater your ‘TrustScore’ becomes. This is a special algorithm that increases as the system becomes more trusting of you and your survey answers, and once it hits 9000 you get paid more per survey.
Now obviously this takes some time, but we have to consider PaidViewPoint.com here…they have to learn to trust you as a survey taker, and when they do they will reward you with more substantial earnings.
It’s worth pointing here that the figures in the image above were achieved by me within 5 minutes of signing up, so you can see for yourself the potential of the system.
However, with a little persistence…earnings do grow:
So the big question is…is PaidViewPoint.com a scam?
Despite my general dislike for survey sites, I can honestly say that it is definitely NOT a scam. Everything about the site feels trustworthy, and with their previous experience of InstantCashSweepstakes.com they have built a Worldwide opportunity that will no doubt be just as successful.
Of course, earnings are relatively low, but that is to be expected of a low-skill work from home opportunity. However, if you like the appeal of taking simple surveys and earning a few dollars every now and then, PaidViewPoint.com gets the Work From Home Watchdog seal of approval for being one of the best online survey websites that we have seen in a very long time!
