The Amazing Amount This Homemaker Earned Online in 2016 From Surveys, Communities and Focus Groups.

it's time to reveal my total online income for 2016 and my top ten earners.
total amount earned in 2016:

that averages out to:
$1,450 a month
$334 a week
$47.69 a day

of that, $11,311 (65%) was CASH, either in the form of a check mailed to me, a visa prepaid card or paypal deposit. the remainder (35%) was in gift cards--primarily amazon but some walmart, target and whole foods.

top 10 survey sites:
no. 1 swagbucks $981 my biggest earner but i also spend the most time here. my tips here. also note jan. is the site's slowest month--earnings pick up in feb.
no. 2 vocalpointvoice $425 (invite only. you need to get a recruit survey through another panel.)
no. 3 gtm $335
no. 4 mintvine $330
no. 5 resolution panel/usatalknow $301
no. 6 surveysavvy $292 must download their software for optimal earnings.
no. 7 productreportcard  $260
no. 8 innopoll $255
no. 9 ipoll $245 i don't recommend them now since SSI bought them. my earnings plummeted.
no. 10 parentspeak/kidzeyes $237

just these 10 sites generated over $3,600 income in one year! if you don't have 9 hrs a day to devote to this i highly suggest you just start out with these and start getting a routine down. 3 yrs. ago when i started all this to earn a bit of extra money i worked at it all month and earned a whopping $159. and back then i thought that was good! but every month i made a bit more and every month i worked a bit smarter---now i always make between $1200-$2000 a month--and that is sizable income for a homemaker! obviously this can't compete with a real job but it is great income considering i never have to leave the house, never have to pay for childcare and can truly pick and choose exactly what work i want to do so i am always available for our boys. plus it gives me something to do all day when they are in school!

Become A Food Product Tester For A Major Brand!

i have reviewed Mccormick's consumer testing site before but i just recently was accepted into a new study and thought i would mention them again for folks that may not have heard of them before.

i love being a part of this site. every 3 months you are eligible to take a short screener and qualify to test one of McCormick's newest products. they send you the product, even supply a recipe or two, and even PAY you $10-$20 in amazon gift cards once the study is complete. all you need to do is fill out a survey about your experience. you do not need to physically visit their facility--although there are even more opportunities if you can drive to either their baltimore or new orleans locations.

additionally, they even have bonus activities--make a collage or video about the test product and possibly earn an additional incentive.

they also have non-product test surveys periodically that offer a chance at winning amazon gift cards.

in addition to the regular compensation for testing products i have already won $25 for a collage submission and $10 for a survey raffle.

like some other sites though, often i do not receive an email for an upcoming project---so it's best to bookmark them and check once a week or so for opportunities.

even if you aren't big into surveys, if you like to cook and try new products this site is for you!

The Surprising Amount I Earned Online In 2015.

another great online earning year! i keep good records of all my online earnings and for 2015 i made a grand total of:


that's $1,278.27 a month

or $42.61 a day

to further break it down:

71% cash/check/paypal:

29% giftcards(usually walmart or amazon): 

granted, this is nothing compared to when i was working full time but it is great income for a homemaker! back then i was paying $460 PER WEEK for childcare, working many nights and weekends and nearly every holiday. also add in the cost of gas, work clothes and meals. now i am making decent money and am always home for my family (but admittedly on my laptop a lot!)

i also looked up my top 15 earners for last year. now keep in mind, i belong to over 100 sites, which includes survey companies, research panels, mobile apps and online communities--some only earning me $20 over the course of a year and others earning nearly $1000. the higher paying focus groups and online communities came about through invites through my regular survey taking sites or filling out an endless amount of screeners. here are my top survey site earners for the year:

Sign Up With General Mills Advisory Panel!

did you know General Mills has their own survey panel? it is open to US residents ages 18 or over.

it is a panel you won't hear much from but it is always a nice surprise when you do. lots of potential for online focus groups and webcam discussions that pay $75 on average. rewards are paid in amazon codes.

honestly i only hear from them about 4x a year and do not qualify for most of the nice paying projects.
maybe you will have better luck than me!

here is a site that is fun and is purely luck of the draw. do 'quick hits' daily about brands and earn drawings for monthly gift card prizes. i find it fun, quick and worth my time. i only do the quick hits though and rarely do the challenges or more involved activities. the more active you are within each brand the more entries you receive--even so, nothing is guaranteed. one month i went all out and did as many extra point activities possible to increase my odds and that was the one month i got zilch so i am leery now of investing all that effort again. so far i have won gift cards 3 out of the 4 months i have been active. granted they are only $5 amazon or walmart gift cards but it only takes me minutes a day. one month i won 4 gift cards total! the key is to do your quick hits everyday so they don't accumulate and get overwhelming.

crowdtap also does product sampling--however i have yet to be accepted into any! and i believe you can only register with them through Facebook.

sign up!

right now you can sign up through this link and instantly get a free Truvia sample!

get buzzing with buzzagent!

if you haven't already, sign up with bzzagent. this company doesn't pay but they have several 'campaigns' that you can be selected for and test out a new product! the product is yours to keep and all you need to do is 'spread the buzz' about it in reviews and social media.

to date i have received several toys, air fresheners, coffee, toothpaste, yogurt, and hair color---all for FREE! they give you a 'score' that rates your activity level so its important to check in periodically and keep up to date with new profile questions and quick pre-screener surveys. and when you do qualify for a campaign they often send you lots of extra coupons to share with family and friends as well. definitely worthwhile!

Join this site--good for product testing!

one of the best sites for product testing!

this site is a decent one. not a whole lot of invites but of many of the ones you do get lead to good product tests.

i get a great deal of product tests from them---mostly cat litter, makeup and personal care products.


click link to sign up!

most surveys pay 1000 pts. and if you score a product test that adds up to 2000 pts. (1000 for the qualifying screener and then 1000 for the follow up survey). when you hit 20,000 pts, or typically 20 surveys, you can request a $20 check.

don't miss signing up with this one!
