Welcome to our 2016 Opinion Outpost Survey Review. As surveys are quite popular for people who are trying to make money online we thought we might take a look and identify the pro’s and con’s of such online opportunities.
What is It All About?
Opinion Outpost is an online survey company that pays you money to fill out surveys and reviews on products or services. So you are effectively trading your time for money.
Kind of like a job.
Companies like this contact you when there is an appropriate survey for you to fill out, you spend 20 – 30 minutes completing what they send you and you eventually get paid.
How It Work?
You apply online to see if you qualify to work with them. As easy as that! There are however, some restrictions which are listed below.
- Location – Opinion Outpost is limited to certain locations such as the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada. So each country has it’s own website to deal with.
- Age – At the moment you can only participate in Opinion Outpost Surveys if you are 13 years or older.
There is a minimum point quota of 100 that needs to be met before you get paid out so you will have to wait until you accumulate this amount before they pay you.
They will then pay you directly to your PayPal account and this is generally instantly.
Is It Free?
Yes it is free. All you need to do is fill out your details, enter your email (I would recommend using a separate email from your personal account).
The biggest problem people face is not being eligible to participate. It has been known for people to spend 20 minutes filling out the initial application form only to finally be told that they don’t qualify.
Is It Good or Bad?
My opinion is that it is somewhere in between. Yes you can make money doing this (small one time money) but there is a lot of work for pretty minimal payouts.
The bad is that you can spend a lot of time trying to see if you qualify only to be told that you can’t right at the end. This is annoying because like you I value my time and don’t like the idea of putting that work in without getting paid.
Is It a Scam?
No it isn’t a scam. Lots of people use this four letter word for anything that doesn’t work for them. This will work for making one-off quick cash but there is no way to keep earning for the work you have completed.
This bothers me because I like residual or passive income for the work done. I don’t mind working a little harder to earn passively.
Is It safe?
There is nothing unsafe about Opinion Outpost. They are a legitimate company but like many other companies there are a certain amount of negative reviews and experiences.
Payment is made to you using secure means so there is not problem there. You can choose to get paid straight to PayPal or you can receive vouchers instead..
Is It Legit?
Yes they are a legitimate company as mentioned before and have been operating for quite some time (I am unsure of the exact length of time they have been operating).
They are mentioned on numerous sites about being one of the “better” online survey companies to work for.
Is It Worth It?
This is questionable. Spending 30 minutes to fill out a survey that nets you $2 does not sound to appealing. This is well below minimum wage!
If you needed some quick cash then yes this could be an option but I just don’t really see the longevity in it. There is no way to scale things up to earning a full time wage.
Let’s be honest here, if we could replace our 9 – 5 income with online work then we would do so in an instant. For this reason I have found another opportunity that fits this criteria.
Personally I don’t really see that this as a long term option to making money online. I look for ways that I can continue to make income long after i finish the work.
Operating this way will enable me to scale up my efforts and increase my income.
One way I make my money online is by Affiliate Marketing which is essentially selling other companies products (like Amazon, ClickBank, JVZoo).
This method of making money is perfect for beginners and it is still used by very successful internet marketers.
