YouGov surveys review
I’ve seen quite a few bloggers and home money makers talk about making money online with YouGov surveys before, but I’d not joined until now. I was curious to whether it’s really a viable way to make some extra cash from home.
I’ve just signed up as a user this week and so I am going to be sharing my very brand new opinion of this survey site to you. It was quick and easy to sign up. I saw a blog I regularly read share a referral link and recommend it so this is what encouraged me to give it a go.
It wasn’t the first time I had heard of this site though as I’ve seen it listed in online income reports of others and mentioned on forums. I’ve also seen a few bloggers who like to earn money from home by various methods mention it before.
If you’d like to sign up then please use my referral link here: https://yougov.co.uk/refer/t79C5XocuB4nuRbotP51Vg/
Once you’re signed up, you can get your own referral link to share with your friends and family and you’ll get some extra points once they complete surveys!
What is YouGov?
YouGov conducts polls about all sorts of current affairs and topics of interest to people in the UK. These results are often shared in media and used my political parties or marketing agencies, for example, to assess public opinion on hot topics.
How can I make money with YouGov?
If you sign up as a participant with YouGov then you will be invited to answer polls and complete surveys. You will receive points for each survey completed which can be collected and eventually exchanged for cash. You’ll be emailed whenever there’s a new survey for you and you can complete it straight from your smartphone or laptop.
How long are YouGov surveys?
I have so far completed three surveys. The longest one probably took me only a couple of minutes, though it said it would take longer. I think it all depends on your answers to the questions. I received 50 points for one survey, so I think it will take me a while to get to the cashing out stage! The surveys so far were quite interesting though and only multiple choice questions, so really easy to answer. They could be taken at otherwise non-money making time, like whilst cycling on a bike at the gym or watching your favourite TV show. I personally love trying to make the most of every moment with my online money making! At the end of one of the surveys I was asked to answer a poll for an extra 10 points and it took me only a few seconds!
How many YouGov points do I need to cash-out?
You need 5000 points to get a £50 ‘cheque’. They call it a cheque, but it’s actually a bank transfer straight to your bank account within 30 days of requesting it. Considering I’ve received 50 points per survey so far, I’d need to complete 100 surveys to be able to cash out. With a few surveys per week, this could take most of the year, or half a year! I’ve no idea how often they will send me surveys, but I’ve seen others mention they get a few per week.
Will YouGov make me rich?
No, definitely not, unless I’m missing a trick. I’m very new to it, but it looks like a small side hustle that doesn’t take much time and is easy to do in spare time or whilst doing something else like watching TV or instead of browsing your personal social medias! It’s also quite fun just to give your opinion and know your results are included in the polls that media mention.
YouGov payment update
November 2019 - I finally got my first £50 payment in November 2019, so one whole year after signing up! It features in my November income report which shares all the ways I make money from home and online.
I didn't take part in every survey I was sent, but most of them. It takes a long time to earn money with YouGov. The £50 payment was great and you might think it's worth doing for a nice £50 cheque on a yearly basis for answering polls.
I'm not sure yet if I will continue. I hope they offer more money per survey, shorter surveys as some were quite long and a lower payment threshold. Then I'd definitely continue using YouGov!
