Before joining online survey panels, make sure to do a thorough research on these companies. Find out how much they pay. You do not want to end up spending the whole day answering surveys only to be paid less than a dime per hour.
Create an email account just for your survey emails. This will help you unclutter your personal email accounts and organize your email accounts.
Set a schedule of when you should work on the surveys. Although some survey invitations are available for a couple of days, the good ones fill up immediately so consider this factor when making your schedule.
It is a good practice to keep a log of your money, points or rewards to help you keep track of how much you are earning. This will also help you crosscheck your actual money received against how much you are expecting to receive.
Complete Your Profile
Some survey invitations in survey panels are sent out only to people who match specific criteria. Be sure to keep your profile up to date so that you will be considered in some surveys that will otherwise not be made available to you.
