There are a lot of free resources out there that can help you find some legitimate surveys. You're going to be scrounging mucking around in the cold, shallow, water trying to find a few measly flakes of gold.
The reality is that if you don't spend more time doing surveys than actually looking for surveys you're not going to make a decent amount of extra money. There are sites out there that are paid survey directories.
What exactly does that mean? It means that you have to pay a small amount of money up front to get access to their database of survey companies. One such paid survey directory is Paid Surveys Etc...
When you login in to the member's area of Paid Surveys Etc... the information is pretty well organized. You can navigate to any one of the following pages: Home, first step, survey database, bonuses, extra's, contact us.
The bonuses for Paid Surveys Etc... are more of a distraction than anything else. If you're looking to do more than take surveys the bonuses may be able to help get you pointed in the right direction. However, they're pretty basic.
The real gold is in the survey database section. There are lots of companies listed and it tells you what kind of compensation is cash, prizes, or cash and prizes. They are also broken down by region such as U.S., UK, NZ, all, etc... Some are specific only to certain regions or states.
There are at the time of writing this there were 6 pages of survey companies. There are 30+ companies per page. The investment in Paid Surveys Etc... is probably a wise one to make. You could spend a long time trying to find this many survey companies on your own. The price if you enter the coupon code given on the site is only $34.00. This is worth the time and aggravation of trying to find sites on your own.
