Surveys and Friends, found online at SurveysAndFriends.com, is a website which says that they can help anyone make an extra $500 to $1500 in their spare time using online market research.
Established in 2005, this company says that they have worked hard to help tens of thousands of people understand the best possible methods and resources for making money with online market research.
This website is clear that they themselves are not a market research company. Instead, for a one time fee of $34, they will provide you with information you can use to make the most amount of profit possible off of market research opportunities.
How It Works
According to SurveysAndFriends.com, their website will point you toward the ethical, legitimate, and high paying survey panels available to you, as well as “revealing the most guarded secret” used to make money with surveys.
You will also receive full access to a database filled with knowledge and tools used by long time successful survey takers, so that you can begin making money from surveys right away, and be profitable from the beginning.
Finally, the website says that they will also teach you the secret of getting paid not only for your opinions, but also for the opinions of your friends through the customizable website they will provide for you.
What to Consider
The general rule is always that a market research company which charges you money is not a legit company to do business with. However, Surveys and Friends says they are not a market research company, but rather an informational website which will give step by step directions on how to successful make money with these sites.
Unfortunately there are many places all over the internet which provide lists of vetted, ethical survey sites completely for free. OpportunityChecker.com has a list of Real Online Survey Companies.
The real business being promoted by this company is the customizable website they provide for you, which is likely an affiliate portal designed to bring them more customers.
Customers who do sign up with Surveys and Friends and are unhappy with what they receive are lucky, though, because this is a Clickbank product, which means that you can get a refund within 60 days, no questions asked.
