Generally speaking, paid surveys are not everybody’s cup of tea.
Yes, they can generate an income online, but they can often be time-consuming and difficult to use.
So when we were asked to provide a review for a popular online survey site called PaidViewPoint.com, we were a little hesitant.
Is it another clunky survey process with little in the way of earning potential? What follows in our Paidviewpoint review 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 found that some survey sites often look very basic, and can be difficult to navigate.
That’s definitely not the case with Paidviewpoint because what you get here is a fresh-looking platform that is 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 PaidViewpoint and see if we can spot why this opportunity might just be different from the rest.
Remember that these are my own thoughts based on the fact that I have joined up (it’s free) and tried it myself.
What’s to love?
1) No getting kicked out halfway 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 is 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).
Paidviewpoint is keen to assure you that your details are totally safe by not requesting your full name and full home address.
3) Paidviewpoint has a solid pedigree
Created by the same team responsible for InstantCashSweepstakes.com (a US-only survey site), Paidviewpoint 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 tells 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 survey experience will know that this is not always the case.
PaidViewpoint recognizes this and does everything they can to show what you are earning with each survey.
This leads nicely to my only real negative…
Earnings can initially be slow.
Earlier I mentioned that survey sites generally require hard work to earn a few dollars, but Paidviewpoint avoids this 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. Once it hits 9000 you get paid more per survey.
Now obviously this takes some time. But we have to consider Paidviewpoint 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?
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.
Paidviewpoint has rightly earned its place on our list of (what we consider to be) the best survey websites currently available.
Of course, earnings are relatively low, but that is to be expected of a low-skill work-from-home opportunity.
But earning online in this way is ideal if you are using it to raise some extra cash, or to fund a more advanced way of making money online.
Paidviewpoint gets the Work From Home Watchdog seal of approval for being one of the most focused and legitimate survey websites available.
