How to: Earn money online answering questions in your spare time! (With prolific)

Source

There are a ton of different options out there to make money from the comfort of your own home.

But honestly, it's a minefield isn't it?

Which ones actually pay money, real cash, into your account and fast?

In among the different options you will need to swerve MLM schemes, scams and sites that lure you in and then don't seem to pay out any time quick or sometimes not at all.

Well, I'm here to tell you about Prolific. 


Honestly, if you're here for a get rich quick scheme, you're in the wrong place. 

Prolific is more what I would call a bit of extra pocket money. 

Something to use to maybe save a pot of spends for your yearly holiday or, if you're anything like me, to fuel your ebay habit!

Prolific is a site used by academics, startups, charities and businesses to run studies that they need YOU to answer. 

And for your time, they pay you money!!!

Most studies take no more that a few minutes each and can be completed easily from your phone or tablet. 

What are Prolific Surveys?

Prolific is a survey website, like any other. It’s definitely legitimate and it’s not a scam.Prolific surveys review
Prolific hosts academic surveys, so the surveys tend to originate from university research projects. As such, they are often about things like human behaviour, how you make decisions, and things like that. This means Profilic surveys are usually far more interesting to fill out than those on other survey sites.                                                                                                                                               Source

When you register with Prolific, you will be asked a series of 'pre-screening questions'. There are a lot of questions, they are optional and you can save and come back to complete more at a later date but the more you fill in, the more studies you will be matched with based on your eligibility.

Once you have completed your registration and pre-screening, it's just a case of waiting for studies to become available.
Sometimes there will be 5 in a row waiting for you. Other times there'll be nothing. Don't let the 'nothing' times put you off!
I just make logging in & checking for studies part of my routine. In those times where you would normally sit and mindlessly scroll facebook in your spare 5 minutes, use the time to answer a study instead. 
Those few minutes in a morning whilst you're enjoying your cup of tea in peace, your lunch break at work or before bed. We all have a few minutes spare per day to log in and make some money.

Payments vary depending on how long the study will take or what it involves. I've had some that require you to listen to things or watch videos and have paid up to £5 for doing so. Others are literally 2 questions long and pay 30p.

Once your account reaches £5, you are able to 'cash out'. This is done via paypal (hence it being a great source for ebay addicts!) 
Cash out is instant, no waiting around for payment but you are charged a small fee if you cash out anything under £20.
Overall, prolific is a great way to use your spare time, to make a bit of extra money and to make a difference in the process by contributing to meaningful academic research.
It is something I have used for the past year now and although it is something I have fits and spurts with where I forget about it for a few weeks and they suddenly remember it is there when I need some money and go full force with picking up studies, I have managed to make £250!
The past few days alone, with having the prolific page open in the background on my laptop whilst blogging and whatnot, I have managed to make £20.
Like I say, it's no get rich quick scheme, but for very little effort, it is a great way to make a little extra pocket money.
