There are sites similar to Click 4 Surveys that I have come across before and saw just one pattern; professional-looking, seem upfront about the mechanics they use but the problem is they profess of making online survey takers rich.
This is a huge come-on for those who are just new in the game as it gives them “hope” (read: false hope). But sometimes, people who hope to get more from surveys would think the otherwise and still continue to join this platform.
For me, I felt that Click4Surveys is quite misleading. The difference it had from other online survey platforms was seen in the way each of them presented their home page (surely, they try to make it catchy as possible), and so-called promises were reworded for a unique approach.
So I had to find out how fast they can dupe me of my effort and time. I don’t like to wake up one morning and tell myself that I’ve been had.
I viewed the site’s carefully presented video. It began by showing members of the survey program relating how joining the site changed their lives big time. Next came a well-dressed guy donning a business suit who did a great job in presenting the program.
What made him convincing was he spoke about the steps used in undertaking surveys; a process not utilized by other sites wherein until you have signed up everything remains a mystery. So, I told myself that this must be real!
What the site claims
Click4Surveys claim that its survey program provides users with instant access to a database of the best online survey venues that offers large sums of money. It avers that this particular database can only be found on this site and not anywhere else which is completely false. You can gain access to these programs anytime using the search box at Google or any other search engines.
The company failed to mention that after joining, users have to sign up individually for each survey. This process takes away your precious time. The presenter on the video makes the process look easy like there are so many high paying surveys available.
Even though there are some that pay high, there is always an exception to this rule. Surveys can last from 1 to 2 hours with only around $0.20 – $0.30 pay out for each survey taken. Qualifying to take surveys is not easy as well like in the case of the high paying ones. You may wait to get qualified but would find out after several days that you haven’t. This is shocking.
This site gives you payment options like getting paid by check or through your PayPal account. What was not explained was how each survey company pays you for every survey you do. What I clearly understand is these companies pay separately and doles out money after completion of the task. From what I have gathered, there is a certain level of wages to be earned before you get payment from every survey platform.
Moreover, each company included in a particular database has different payment rates. There are companies having a maximum of $50 payout. So, a $0.20 per survey takes you a lifetime to cash out for your efforts. Undergoing surveys using different companies may likewise delay your payout.
This site advertises surveys paying for around $5.00 to $75.00 each in contrast to its meager $0.20 – $0.30 per survey payout. Some surveys even pay in kind like points, rewards or special offers. The site pays with its users’ emotions by showing extraordinary calculations of income and they even came up with an income calculator!
If you think that this is a free site that can up your income, think again; you have to pay $97 to get your account activated! It acts as a middle man to hook you up with other survey platforms which do not even charge you for signing up. This adds to the illegitimacy of this site.
Why do you need to be trained for taking surveys? I think taking a survey only requires ticking boxes or leaving some remarks but this site provides you training which I find too irrelevant. Training involves users to upsell products and aims to transform each member into affiliate marketers who will eventually advertise products. The way I see it, the site makes use of exploitation of its members.
Surprise! This site also sells products that are almost half the price or, maybe, lesser than that. It provides you with free coupons that you can use to avail of discounted prices. Imagine buying products that are way below the median selling price. What do you get? Products that mirror poor quality!
If a product sells at a higher price, then, you should get the idea that the company selling it is reliable and does not discount having premium standards. Presenting users with promotional products like this caliber is another attempt to get your own money. You may opt to skip this one but some may be tempted to take advantage of the “low price”.
Here’s how other users rated Click4Surveys:
- Price: 2/10
- Resources: 2/10
- Support: 1/10
- Ease of usage: 2/10
- Honesty: 2/10
- Overall rank: 1.8/10
What is good is that the surveys on this site are simple to find and uses simple instructions. The website itself is easy to navigate and simple. There are no annoying advertisements or promotions. However, several users say that it is simple because it has nothing on it.
Now, you can tell me why this site claims that you can earn by money for only 30 minutes, the time you put your kids to bed. These unreasonable claims were even strengthened by a founder’s testimonials saying how he earned his stash and how he has a stable financial existence.
If you are really bent on making money, try out some sites for size. Chances are you’ll end up with something that can provide real value and something that can make you earn without being deducted money from their on-site hard-selling strategies.
