Survey Chris Income Report – August 2014

income-report-screenshotEvery month I publish my survey income reports which document how much I make from taking surveys and recommending others to survey sites on my blog.

These income reports are here to show you where exactly I am making the most money, and with which survey sites.

Also in these monthly income reports will include updates to the website for the last month, which survey sites I liked the best in the past month, along with what you can expect to see on Survey Chris in the coming month.

I hope that these monthly reports will inspire you to see how much you can add onto your monthly income by utilizing online survey sites, and see where you should be directing your time and energy when it comes to taking surveys.

What Was New in August

August is the fourth month that Survey Chris has been up and running. Here is what was new for the site this month:

Best Survey Companies Right Now

For August, there were a couple stand-out survey sites that I made the most money on.

If you want to make the most money with surveys, you will want to sign up for multiple companies so you never run out of surveys to take.

The top ones I recommend from this month are:

  1. Swagbucks

  2. Opinion Outpost

What to Expect for Next Month

Survey Reviews: For September, I you can expect to see a couple survey companies reviews. I will be reviewing InboxDollars and Ipsos i-Say.

Blog Posts: I have gotten good feedback on the blog posts that I have been putting out, so I will continue to write those. I think the tips, and collecting similar survey companies under categories, like paying through PayPal and quick payouts, goes along well with general survey reviews.

My August Income Breakdown

So here is the part you came here for, to see exactly how much I am making with each company. For the month of August, here is how I did:

This all combines for a monthly total of $194.79

For July, I made $112.66

I made $82.13 more in August than in July. This is great, and I expect this income to continue growing from here on out.

Things to Note for August

August was a pretty productive month for SurveyChris. With 16 articles, 3 new videos, and finally getting the eBook published were awesome.

However, I need to pick it up when it comes to survey reviews. I cashed out a couple right at the end of the month, so you will be getting those reviews here shortly.

Since I actually use these survey companies, it does take me longer to get the reviews, because I want to cash out, or try really hard to cash out if it's less quality survey company. This takes time, but I am willing to spend this time because it means I am able to give you better reviews of companies.

If I spend multiple hours on a survey site and end up making barely any money, then I can and will tell you to avoid that site. This time spend is discouraging, but I am always happy once I'm able to hit the publish button on my reviewing, knowing that it will end up saving you time and frustration.

I like making money on survey sites, but I what I really enjoy is giving you high quality information to help you make more money. If I didn't enjoy that, then I could simply go along using my techniques and strategies and not publishing information to SurveyChris.

About My Survey Income Breakdown

Each month I take surveys from a variety of different companies and try them out long enough to get paid. During this process I am reviewing these companies to determine who is worth recommending to you and which companies you should avoid. This income is reflected above each month.

That's why in my reviews of companies like Cash CrateOpinion Outpost and Ipsos i-Say I show you actual screenshots of my earnings, checks etc so that you can see I really am trying out these companies.

Unlike most other survey websites out there that just write content to get referrals I spend the time actually trying these companies to determine which ones are the best for you.

Another chunk of income that I make from this website (which I expect to continue to grow) comes from referring other people to survey companies that I recommend on this blog. I hope you see the value in having someone else test out these survey companies first and I appreciate the support when you sign up for the survey companies I recommend.

Be sure to also read my free guide if you're serious about maximizing your survey income. You can download that guide for free here.

  1. Do these numbers factor in what you spend? In your book, for example, you recommend signing up for the Accelerator program through Swag Bucks. Do you subject tract that $10 out from your total earnings for the month?

    1. Hey Lindsay,

      As for as the accelerator program, I haven’t factored that in. I have factored in paid offers though.
