If you don't have time reading this entire review, then let me share that Opinion Outpost is a legitimate service. It's one of the better options available for earning money with online surveys. And, yes, they do pay people.
With many online survey websites like Swagbucks, I've found it takes a lot of time to earn money or points. I mean a lot of time. Now, that I have got that out of the way, let me share my experience with you.
Opinion Outpost is a legitimate data company offering consumers an opportunity to share their opinions and experiences in exchange for money by completing online surveys.
Opinion Outpost makes its money from their clients who pay them to get access to you and your consumer habits. By having you complete surveys, their clients get the information they need to improve their products or market research.
Opinion Outpost makes money when consumers complete surveys. So, that means you'll need to complete a set of qualifying questions before getting a paid survey.
During my review period, I completed my initial profile screening and spent 20 minutes getting the system to understand who I am. This helps their algorithms determine which surveys they'll present me.
Initially, I didn't qualify for any survey opportunities. And in fact, I was told my responses seem to be contradictory. Since my purpose was to understand how Opinion Outpost works, I may have rushed through the questions.
Eventually, I answered another set of qualifying questions and was able to get through to a survey. I went through a set of 3 qualifying questionnaires and got to complete 1. My success rate is about 33%. Your success might be better or worse. It all depends on you.
With online surveys, you'll often find yourself completing qualifier questions instead of the paid surveys. These qualifiers help determine what surveys you're best suited to answer. This is important for online survey companies who want real opinions and data from real people.
When I first started doing online surveys to earn money, I thought the qualifying questions was the actual survey. After spending 10 minutes answering these questions, I found it frustrating that I didn't qualify.
The qualifier questions are mostly different but some will reappear again. My favorite question was “What is my ideal vacation?” which required me to answer with a detailed sentence.
To lessen the pain, many online survey websites will give you some points, or pennies, or put you in a drawing to win a specific amount. With Opinion Outpost, every time you're screened out of a survey, you're entered into a $10,000 quarterly drawing. This is an incentive to keep you coming back.
When you're disqualified, you're presented with a set of new questions and an opportunity for another survey.
You earn points with Opinion Outpost. Each (1) point equals $0.10, meaning it will take you 100 points to earn $10. Once you earn 100 points, you can request a cash out into your PayPal account. Or you can choose Amazon points or earn MileagePlus Award miles.
A fellow blogger who've used Opinion Outpost told me she made $20 in a span of 7 hours. That means she was paid $2.85 an hour. She wasn't at all thrilled about the hourly rate. But she did mention when she's bored or need a distraction, she'll do the questionnaire and see if she qualifies for a survey.
You can visit the website often and continue to answer profile questionnaires so the system can better understand who you are. Additionally, Opinion Outpost will send email surveys a couple times a day.
With any online survey companies, the more the system understands who you are, what you do, what you're interests are, and other habits, it will offer you more relevant opportunities.
