My Personal Future Net Earning Plan

This post details my personal Future Net earning plan for making £500 per month.  Future Net is one of several income streams I use in My Personal Plan to Earn £2500 per Month Online.

What is Future Net?

Future Net offers many business related services including:

Blog Hosting

Landing Pages


Business Pages

It also has:

A social media section

An external shopping section

Future Net Branded Products

Why Do I Use Future Net?

I have conducted extensive research into the revenue sharing model of online earning.  In my opinion Future Net is one of the most stable revenue sharing sites available for the following reasons:

  • Future Net was launched early in 2014.  This means it has lasted much longer than all other revenue sharing sites I am aware of.
  • It has a social media site which pays users a small amount for their activities.  Social media sites are highly profitable because they generate revenue through external advertising to their large user base.  By examining the Future Net social media site it is very obvious it generates revenue in this way.
  • The advertising on the social media site is from large companies who are not involved in work from home type activities.   These external adverts are also visible on the other parts of the website.
  • Future Net has several additional revenue generation streams.  The options such as blog hosting, landing pages and the shopping sections provide further revenue to Future Net.
  • During my time using the site it is obvious the owners are working on continual development.

When accessing online earning sites it is important to be able to identify where the site revenue is coming from.  The fact Future Net has obvious EXTERNAL revenue generation provides me with much more confidence in the site than other revenue sharing sites.

More information about this is provided in my post Are All Revenue Sharing Sites Ponzi Schemes?

My Personal Plan

From my own use of Future Net I estimate that $50 ad packs provide a return of around $0.50 per pack per day.  This is an average with quite a bit of daily variation in the amount.

At this rate I need to purchase approximately 43 $50 ad packs = $645.  This converts to around £500 per month.

I have now reached 35 $50 packs.  This was my original target amount and now plan to withdraw a monthly amount.  I have been debating over continuing to purchase packs until I hit 43, or withdrawing some cash now.  Its a tough decision to make to be honest.  I am going with the withdrawal option because I have found a new opportunity I want to check out and I always like to use earnings to fund other options.  Of course I will share my findings on this new one after using it myself for a while 😉

I also highly recommend withdrawing initial funds as soon as possible with any online earning site.  This increases the chances of making a profit.

My estimate is I will be able to withdraw $150 this month (May) from Future Net, and then $250+ each month after that.  I will purchase 5 new $50 packs each month and withdraw the remaining amount.  This will allow me to continue growing my ad pack total while also having a monthly income.  By doing this I will be able to withdraw my initial deposited funds by the end of June.  All monies withdrawn after that will be 100% profit.

Once I start purchasing the 5 packs per month I will know if this is sufficient to keep growing the total number of $50 ad packs.  I will review this plan next month to make sure I am on track.

Clixsense Earning Strategy for $1000+ Per Month

Clixsense Earning Strategy

My Clixsense Earning Strategy

My Clixsense earning strategy is very simple and is available to everyone worldwide.  In my last post I mentioned having a new monthly target of just $10 per month from Clixsense.  This is part of my earning strategy to turn that $10 per month into $1000+ per month.

What is Clixsense?

Clixsense is what I would call a casual earning site.  By this I mean it offers lots of basic paid online tasks such as clicking adverts, watching videos, mini jobs, surveys and offers.  These tasks pay a small amount for each one completed. That does not mean you can’t make a high income from it, you can.  What I have found however is most people struggle to gain sufficient referrals to make that high level income from Clixsense.  That has motivated me to develop my Clixsense earning strategy to help others to make a high level income from this site.

Why am I focused on Clixsense?

I have used Clixsense daily now for several years.  I must admit I went through some initial hesitation that this site was a genuine way to make money from home.  It seemed impossible to make a decent income from clicking ads for pennies.  I also found it quite frustrating to use at first which you can read all about in my one week trial post.

So why am I focused on Clixsense?  I actually have a lot of reasons:

  1. It is very quick and easy to do the ad clicks each day
  2. There is no charge to use the site for earning
  3. It provides a guaranteed way to earn a small amount of money each month which is all that is needed for my strategy to work
  4. Clixsense is a worldwide site so has a high potential for getting referrals
  5. It is one of the most stable online earning sites I know of
  6. There are many different ways to earn
  7. Commission is paid down 8 levels of referrals
  8. It is possible to raise income on this one site up to thousands per month with the correct strategy
  9. Additional benefits such as high quality advertising are also provided on this site
  10. It has a huge amount of daily traffic from other professional online marketers

I must admit I also want to show that it is possible to earn a great income from using Clixsense.

To show I am following this Clixsense earning system myself here is my first Clixsense $10 per month earnings screenshot:

How to earn $10 per month on Clixsense

I have written a list of recommended activities to help you with earning

From $10 to $1000 per month

As I already mentioned it is possible to make thousands per month just from using Clixsense.  This usually requires having a lot of referrals and this is difficult for most people.

There is a simple way around this though.

By earning just $10 per month on Clixsense you open the doors to a massive range of options.  It is using these options in conjunction with Clixsense that creates an easy way to build up your income to $1000+ per month.

The options that I would recommend are either:

Investing the $10 per month into Future Net.  This site provides a profit through revenue sharing which means for each $10 you invest you get $12 back.  I have done extensive research into revenue sharing sites and find this to be the most stable one available.  As you can see from the screenshot below I have received over $1000 in commission from Future Net.

Or using the $10 per month to pay for blog hosting with Global Domains International.  This site provides the chance to create an income from blogging AND/OR from promoting the platform which can also be done without writing a blog.  In my experience a lot of work from home people want to open a website or write a blog at some point so this is a great earning opportunity on its own.   You may wish to read about the income GDI provides.  I have written about that in post Want Cheap Website Hosting Fees? My Provider Pays Me!

Additionally I advise reading the  Benefits of Blogging post when considering this option.

Higher Level Income

If you choose to follow this Clixsense earning strategy and commit to earning just $10 per month on the site I will also assist you with team building by providing referrals.  This will lead to an income that surpasses the $1000 per month level.  You will need to be in my Clixsense downline team (in any of the 8 levels) for me to provide you with referrals.  If you are already a member of Clixsense on another team please contact me to discuss how I can help.

To qualify please use the following referral links.  These belong to my team members 😉   Once you join your referral links will be added to the link rotation cycle here too.

Daily Earning Plan for Clixsense

Daily Earning Plan ClixsenseThis is my current personal daily earning plan for Clixsense.  In my last post  How to Get Back on Track I said I was going to share my new earning plan.  After a little thought I have decided to do a daily earning plan for each site that I use and so I am starting with Clixsense.

I am using Clixsense, along with several others, to help me meet my income goal of earning £2500 per month. I aim to work only online for a total of 1 hour per day to earn this amount.

Each of my daily earning plans will provide full information to allow you to also be able to earn this amount if you wish.  If you prefer to pick and choose to use only some of the sites in my plan you are very welcome to do so of course – each site works independently of the others.

About Clixsense

Clixsense is over 8 years online and I have been using it daily for around 2 years. There are many ways to earn with Clixsense, namely:

Ad Clicking
Mini Tasks
Viewing videos
Completing Offers
Advertising other work from home opportunities

My Daily Earning Plan

Current income goal: $10 per month (£8)or roughly $0.35 per day.
Actions: Complete the ad clicks each day which takes me a couple of minutes. Complete a survey or 2 to reach target when needed.
Notes: Although this is a rather small amount to earn it is fast, easy and guaranteed. Once earned I invest this monthly amount into other sites to boost it further.  I have funded several sites by using Clixsense in this way.

Progress Towards Goal

Daily Ad click earnings are approximately $0.14
Referral earnings are approximately $0.03

To Do

Monitor Survey Income
Promote referral link to boost earning by team members
Upgrade to premier account again

How to Earn with Future Net

There are many ways to earn with Future Net.  Some are free and some require a little investment.  It is of course possible to start earning with the free options and then progress to the others if you want to.  You can also pick and choose which of the options you want to earn with.

The Official Future Net Video


The following are the main ways to earn with Future Net:

Social Media Club

The first free way to earn with Future Net is through the social media club.  It basically has a section that works just like facebook, but with Future Net you earn by being active on there. Basically you earn by posting, liking, sharing videos and photos and by sending other members a private message.  Really anything you do on most social media sites, if you do it on Future Net you will get paid.  My blog post  Start Earning with Future Net provides more details of how you can earn with this free option.

 Affiliate Sales

If you promote the Future Net products and make a sale then you will earn commission for doing that.  You will also receive commission if someone you refer to Future Net makes a sale.  The commission levels are between 3% and 5% depending on what is sold and who makes the sale.   The main products you can make commission on are landing pages, video mail, blogs, cloud storage, website templates and games.

Matrix Earnings

This is one of the paid earning opportunities available on Future Net.  To be eligible for earning you need to invest at least $10 for a matrix position.  It is a forced matrix which means there are limited positions available and new referrals are automatically placed into the next free position.  The Future Net Matrix has 3 free positions under each person who invests.  In other words there are 3 empty slots available for your referrals to be placed.  If you continue to recruit new members who join the matrix after the 3 slots under you are filled they will be allocated to the vacant slots under your own referrals.  This is a great option, because you can help your referrals to start earning while also earning yourself.  You get paid up to 10 levels deep in the matrix plan.

The matrix earning plan provides a huge potential for income as shown in the chart below:


Future Ad Pro

This is the second paid earning opportunity.  To earn from this option you simply purchase an advertising pack that costs either $10 or $50.  You are paying to advertise on the Future Net platform, so this is a great option for those wishing to recruit new team members for another opportunity.  In return for purchasing an advertising package and viewing 10 adverts per day you will become eligible for a share in revenue.  This means for each $10 package you purchase you will be given a return of $12.  For each $50 package you purchase you will be given a return of $60.

The share of revenue you receive daily depends entirely on the income generated by the Future Net platform on that day.

This is a screenshot of my earnings from ad packs:



Matching Bonuses

You will receive a Matching Bonus on the income made by your direct referrals.  This relates to the matrix earnings and is dependent on your own level:

Member (10$) – Receive 10% Matching Bonus!
Basic ($25) – Receive 20% Matching Bonus!
Gold ($50) – Receive 30% Matching Bonus!
Exclusive ($100) – Receive 50% Matching Bonus!
Sapphire ($500) – Receive 50% Matching Bonus!
Royal ($1000) – Receive 50% Matching Bonus!


Future Net continues to add additional features on a regular basis.  For example there is now a shopping section, and they recently added the $10 ad pack option.  In my opinion it is a great site that I am happy to recommend to all.

Earn £100 per month with Recyclix


My plan to earn £100 per month with Recyclix is quite straightforward.  As detailed in How to Earn with Recyclix, A Basic Guide I have made a deposit and received my free €20.

With my €200 deposit and free €20 I made a purchase of 1100kg of waste.  Just from using the recycling process I have already got a small monthly income:

My earning total for October from Recyclix was £35.14.

As I already use money earned to buy more waste on the site my income will continue to increase slowly.  By doing this, so far I have increased the amount of waste I am recycling from 1100kg to 2140kg.  Almost, but not quite double what I purchased originally!


I would like to increase my Recyclix income to around £100 per month as soon as possible.  Basic maths would suggest that I need to triple the amount of waste in my recycling process to do that, however that is not the case.  By using the calculator on the site I can see what I need to do to earn €100 per month:


As shown, adding another €500 (approximately £430) or reaching 4640kg of waste would provide my target income of £100 per month.

I am willing to add a little more cash to my account to speed this up a bit.  Most of the extra waste however will be purchased directly from my Recyclix earnings.

The plan then is to add another €100 from my survey earnings this month.  That will leave around 2000kg I still need to purchase.   From my calculations it will take approximately 6 months to buy this direct from my Recyclix account earnings.  Really I would like to be able to earn £100 per month from Recyclix by January 2017.   I will therefore consider adding another €200 from my December survey earnings.

After I hit my £100 per month target I want to aim for 5000kg of waste.   By doing this I will be able to get equipment shares, and that will increase my income and speed up the recycling process as well.  I’m really looking forward to hitting that 5000kg level I must admit.  I can’t wait to see my earnings when I get to that point 🙂

The Benefits of using Clixsense


The benefits of using Clixsense are not immediately apparent when you first join this site.  In fact I would say a lot of people join it click a few ads and think its not worth the time.  I even thought the same when I started my weeklong trial of clixsense.  During that trial however I discovered the potential of this website for earning, and I have continued to use it daily.  I have now earned just under $200 (around £160) with this site by using it for a few mins per day.

I have to admit to being lazy with this site.  Basically the only thing I do on it now is the ad clicks, but there is a lot more you can do.  I have detailed all the earning options available on Clixsense in my weeklong trial post which also explains how to use them.  Today I just want to focus on the benefits.

Earning can be quite fast.

For example when I did a little experiment last year I was able to claim $16 (approx £12) in 11 days from Clixsense.  Quite frankly I have never found another site that offers such a consistent way of earning a reasonable amount of money within the first few days of using it.  Swagbucks is close, but not as fast as this is.  Clixsense also offers a higher payment rate than Swagbucks for particular surveys.

Fabulous Potential

In addition to the decent early earning opportunity offered, there is massive potential to increase earnings over time.  Through the team building option on this site you could actually earn a major income from this site alone.  Clixsense pays commission for 8 levels of team members and this makes a significant difference to the amount of money you can earn from it.


Clixsense also offers brilliant flexibility in terms of time you have available for earning,  This is because you can spend 10 mins a day on it or 2/3 hours if you so wish.  Both of these time availability options  (and of course others in between) can actually be used to create a reasonable income.

High Trust Level

Clixsense has been running for 8+ years and is very well established.   Payments are also consistently made within a few days, giving it a high trust level in the industry.

Low Claim Limit

There is a low claim limit of $8 (approx £5) which can be met in a few days.  If you upgrade the payment claim level reduces to $6.  Because of this Clixsense provides a reasonably quick way of gaining some funds when you need them.

Worldwide Site

Clixsense is available worldwide.  As far as I know Clixsense is actually available to every country in the world.  I haven’t found anyone who can’t register on the site so far.


Although there are more complex parts available the basic ad clicking is very easy.  Everyone can  do it if they can click a button with a mouse.


In my opinion these are some great benefits to using Clixsense.  It is difficult to think of any other online sites that offer all of these to be honest.  I do know that quite a few people have had a poor first experience with Clixsense.  I believe this is because they don’t understand how to maximise the earnings on it.  It took me a little time to understand it myself as I said.


If you have used ClixSense I would love to hear about your own experiences of using it – good or bad!  Feel free to add any comments or questions in the box below and I will get back to you asap :)

Loose Weight and Earn Cash – My Experience with Skinny Body Care

loose weight earn cash with skinny-body-care

Would you like to loose weight and earn cash at the same time?  If so you might like to consider Skinny Body Care.

Today I will share my own experience with this company.

How I got Started

I have to be honest about it, when my friend sent me the link and I had a look at everything I was highly sceptical.  You see I’m the kind of person who always looks at new opportunities from the perspective of what would make this a bad choice…. You see I have spent years checking out a lot of online earning opportunities to make sure they weren’t scams for this blog, and that makes you highly sensitive to looking for negatives.

With Skinny Body Care my first thought was the products wouldn’t work.  How many diet products are there out there that claim all sorts of things? Hundreds right? So I just thought, here is another one.

After doing quite a bit of research I did find a lot of people saying these products really work.  Now that raised my interest.  I also like to check what kind of demand there is for any product.  For Skinny Fiber (one of the main products) I found a huge amount of sales happening DIRECT TO CUSTOMERS.  This raised my interest even more….

After that I thought I would go ahead and buy 1 product to try it out for myself.  I am never happy to recommend something unless I have tried it and found it actually works.  Even though I had read these great reviews etc, I still thought its not going to work.  Guess what? I lost 6lbs in the first few weeks of using it!

I should explain that due to my health problems I can’t do any exercise and I have spent 5 years trying to loose weight without success.

It was only after I had tried the products for myself that I decided to actually start promoting Skinny Body Care.  Now, within a short time I have a whole list of people who all say the same thing. This stuff actually works.

The Products

Obviously the main products are diet related, but there are other products too.  The most well known of the diet products is Skinny Fibre, but Skinny Body Max and Hiburn8 are others that are available.
In addition to the weight loss products there are skin care products too.  Instant Youth reduces the appearance of aging within 90 seconds and Ageless is the long term anti aging product that Skinny Body Care supplies

The latest addition to the range is E3, an energy and endurance product to assist with exercise.

The thing that really ‘sold’ me on Skinny Body Care was the fact I was able to loose weight within a few days.  I started off using HiBurn8 because I was really curious about it. My sleep pattern is awful at times and the idea that this could be stopping me from loosing weight made me wonder about it more.  The liquid has a pleasant fruit flavour and quite easy to take.  That was another plus for me.  I’ve tried several products before and the taste just put me off using them.

Within a couple of days my appetite was definitely lower.  What really struck me though was I had no cravings for chocolate or cakes and biscuits.  I have such a sweet tooth I could live on chocolate sometimes I think, and I certainly don’t go for days without wanting to eat some.  At least I didn’t before trying HiBurn8.  I also noticed that I had more energy.  This was another big plus for me.  I have fibromyalgia which really affects my energy levels.  What I think was happening was I slept better at night and woke up more rested.  I know cutting sugar out of my diet can also improve energy levels, so that probably helped too.

I have to say I was really impressed with HiBurn8 and the fact I noticed a difference so quickly.

After using HiBurn8 for a while I went on to try the other weight loss products too.  As I said I like to try things for myself before recommending them.  I found the same effect on my appetite and cravings with both Skinny Fibre and Skinny Max.  The benefit with these is they really help to make you feel full during the day.  I just simply refuse to ‘go hungry’ on any kind of diet as it makes me miserable.  As I also battle with depression I am very careful to avoid anything that makes my mood drop.

The skin care products and the energy drink I have yet to try for myself.   I will be trying them soon though and will update this post when I do!

If you have any doubts about the products, then all I can say is try them for yourself (or get a friend or family member to try them for you).  I am sure you will find out how great these products actually are if you do.
There is an empty bottle money back guarantee provided by Skinny Body Care so if it is not for you simply return the bottle for a no quibble refund.

Getting Started with Skinny Body Care

It is really easy to get started with Skinny Body Care.  What I advise is to firstly register for a free account by clicking this link.  This will allow you to check out the website in detail, including the compensation plan.   Doing this will also provide you with your first team members and GUARANTEE that you will start earning straight away.  Active and paying team members are allocated through the unique powerline system.  Note at the beginning you will earn commission on the first 3 people allocated to you, but you will get many more than that added to your team.  This is to make sure you always have active and paying team members if any of the first 3 drop out.

After you check out your insider view of the website and have team members in your powerline the next step is to become active.  To do this you simply purchase 1 of the products for yourself.  You can use this yourself, sell it, or use it to provide samples to potential customers.

The cost to join as a team member is just $10 (in addition to your product purchase).

The Compensation Plan

Of course you would like to know about the compensation plan!  You will get full details of the plan by taking a free tour, however the basics are:

You recieve BOTH a weekly amount and a monthly amount.  The weekly amount is an enroller bonus which is paid out each week on Thursday.  It is paid for the previous week’s (Fri-Thurs) volume.

For each product you sell to a customer or team member you will earn a 40% commission on their FIRST order.  This will be $20, $40 or $60 depending on the order size.

The monthly amount is your ongoing commission for repeat sales made.  For this you earn an additional 10% commission for each customer on your first level.  This is $5, $10 or $15 every month per sale made.



All distributors start at 3 levels of commissions for everyone in their organization, and you can earn up to 6 levels of commissions as you advance in rank. You earn 10% on level 1, 5% on level 2 and 3% on level 3.

As you progress up the ranks you will open further payments of 2% as shown below:

How to Earn with Recyclix – A Basic Guide.


I’ve had several requests for info about how to earn with Recyclix as I have mentioned it in my Earn £100 in a week challenge updates.  I have actually been meaning to write a post about Recyclix for a while, so thanks for the prompts to do that!

Recyclix is quite an unusual site, and I must say is one of my personal favorites.  Not only does it help you earn some cash, but it also helps the environment.  Those things combined mean it is a big hit in my book.  In addition it is actually very easy to use once you figure out what to do 😉  The site is available to use worldwide as far as I am aware.



Recyclix is involved in plastic waste recycling.  They convert waste such as plastic bottles and bags into reusble granules.  These granules (shown below) are purchased by manufacturers to make more products.

Recylix granules

Recyclix has been operating for several years in Poland and is now expanding into other countries.  The earning opportunity side of things came about in 2015 due to their expansion plans, and provides the chance to share in the profits the company make.

Very basically, to earn with Recyclix you need to purchase waste on the site.  Don’t worry you will not receive parcels of waste to your house 😉 All of the recycling and selling is done by the company on your behalf.

Step by Step Instructions



  • Check to see if you have been awarded a Free €20 by clicking on the Home Page.  If not make sure you have completed all parts of your profile.
  • If you have your free €20 you are now ready to make a purchase of waste.  You can also make a deposit now if you wish to.  You will not make any profit without making a deposit as your account will be closed before you can make a withdrawal if you don’t make any deposit.  The minimum deposit is  €20.
  • Make sure you are on the home page, showing the little factory like below.  Then click on the buy waste button.  You should use your full balance to do this.



  • Wait for 3 weeks for the waste to be turned into ground material.  If you have the same settings as me in your profile you will receive an email notification when this stage is complete.
  • Once your waste becomes ground material you have the choice to sell or recycle.  Selling at this stage is pretty pointless to be honest and will not provide you with any return.  I always recycle.  You will get a very small payment into your Recyclix account if this is your first cycle.
  • Wait another 2 weeks for the ground material to become granules.  Again you will get a notification via email when this stage is complete.
  • When you get to the granules complete stage you have turned the waste into a salable product.  One full cycle is now complete.
  • Again you now have a choice about what to do.  You can sell or restart the process.  I always recycle.   You will get another very small payment into your Recyclix account if this is your first cycle.
  • This is basically all you need to do to earn with Recylix at the first stages.  Just keep buying waste, recycle when it becomes ground material, then restart when the cycle is complete.
My Earning Progress

Earning will be slow to begin with, but increases over time.  I made a deposit of €100 and I have 3 pages in my profit statement so far.  Note when I got up to €20 in my account I used that to buy more waste.  You can withdraw at this stage if you prefer.




This is a very basic guide to using Recyclix to earn.  There are a lot of additional parts to the site which I will cover in a later post.  Earning options continue to develop as you use the site too and you increase the amount of waste you are recycling 🙂

Did This Help You? If so, I would greatly appreciate it if you commented below and shared on Facebook etc 🙂

Is YouGov Worth Joining?


I often get asked about specific survey sites, so today I am looking at YouGov.

Is YouGov worth joining is not the most straightforward of questions to be honest.  It depends on what you consider ‘worth’ to be.

First of all, YouGov is, in my opinion a very interesting survey site.  Its tagline is “What the World Thinks” and that sums it up pretty well I think. I have been using YouGov for several years and it is certainly one of the more unique survey sites around.  By that I mean the surveys you get are not the kind asking about advertising, or what you have bought usually.  The surveys are more related to government issues.  For example, today when I logged in this was the poll:


As you can see this question about the NHS is a simple poll rather than a full survey.  The site has a lot of polls and the results of these are very frequently seen in news articles.  In addition to this it is very simple to see the results of the polls that are currently running.  As you can see from this Brexit poll, which is an extremely popular topic right now, more people on this site are voting for a ‘Hard Brexit’.  Beside that is the result of another poll regarding the 40p tax rate.


I have to admit I don’t often come across either polls or surveys that focus so clearly on current political trends in quite this way.  One of the things I really like about doing surveys is they tend to get me thinking about various topics that I wouldn’t perhaps have considered before.  One of the things I don’t like so much is not being getting the results of the surveys.  This is obviously not the case with YouGov which actually provides almost an ongoing commentary on the topics discussed.

There are a lot of international surveys and polls on YouGov too, it is not simply a UK only site.  The full results of international surveys and polls are also freely available for members to read.  This result comparing opinions in different countries regarding gender for example, is available at the click of a button:


Because YouGov provides such up to date information about public opinion it certainly is a valuable resource.  Many students use the results in their research papers for example.  In addition, the results on the site are not subject to direct manipulation.  Unlike a newspaper for example, that may only provide partial information, you can look at all of the information yourself.  Many people spend a lot of time on YouGov actually reading about the results and taking part in discussions.  It is actually more like a social media platform than a survey site.  In fact you can choose to make connections with others on here in exactly the same way as most social media platforms. Of course the discussions are more about current news than perhaps you would find on Facebook or Twitter etc. The site does guide discussions in this way:


In additioyougov-paidn to this social media style content, there is the opportunity to actually earn cash for your opinion too.  Just like a lot of the survey sites online you will receive some financial compensation for taking part in the longer surveys.  There is a section specifically for these which is easy to find on your homepage.
Today I have 2 paid surveys available.  Completing any surveys or polls in this section will provide payment of 50 points each.  This equates to 50p for me here in the UK.

The surveys and longer polls in this section usually take around 5-10 mins, which is a reasonable amount for time spent in my opinion.  Many people are happy to get the equivalent of £6+ per hour for doing surveys.  You can claim the money earned when you hit 5000 points (£50) paid via cheque only.

If you prefer to you can opt to enter a prize draw instead:



YouGov is free to join for anyone aged 16 plus and living in the UK.  It also available in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
