Do Paid Surveys Give a Reliable Result

There is plenty of paying survey sites in flooding in the internet today. And their number is continually growing. And even survey takers or simply opportunity grabbers are multiplying too.

With the paid surveys that are conducted by majority of the companies around the world, there is one question that remains unanswered that is “are the results of paid surveys reliable?” It is very difficult to discern whether or not the results will be reliable and would be helpful at all. Wouldn’t it be that instead a company can save from cross cutting their budget by resorting to paid surveys; they’d be in trouble and would end up doubling their expenses knowing the fact that the questions might not be answered heartily.

For instance a company is conducting a feasibility of a particular product and they are deciding whether or not to sell the product in a year’s time, then in order to get the right percentage of feasibility they would pay survey takers to answer the questions, do you think survey takers are very serious about how to help this certain company how to decide in the matter? I doubt it. Most, if not all of the survey takers just complete the survey for the sake of completing it fast and earn cash.

That’s what commonly happens, instead of rating a particular product seriously, they might only have the idea of impressing the company and rating it all excellent just because they were paid to do such.

On the other hand, not all survey takers are opportunity grabbers only. The fact that the ultimate target of paid surveys is the full time moms who want to earn extra cash in their spare time, the results can still be reliable. Women are very particular with their works so there are still chances of reliability in the results. Another is, programmers of different survey sites have their proper division of the data such that they see to it that the important details such as the gender, age and email address are given attention to ensure that the facts that will be gathered are reliable.

In the end, the only thing that could tell whether or not the results are reliable are the companies who conducted their paid surveys. And the indicators would be the result of their project. If it was a success then the results are reliable and if it isn’t then it’s the other way around.
