Diversify Your Income Base With Paid Online Surveys - Get Paid to Take Online Surveys and Prosper

Consumer preference surveys have been around for a long time. The speed and low cost of the Internet have caused them to grow and morph into paid online surveys which have become a big business online.

Thousands of surveys are being taken every week. Tens of thousands of survey participants are getting paid to take online surveys and are receiving checks in the mail each month as compensation for surveys taken.

To qualify you just need to be a consumer, over 18 years of age, with access to the Internet and sufficient computer skills to be able to send and receive e-mails. That's it!

To get started and begin receiving your checks in the mail, you need to get your name and demographic information (Age, gender, occupation, etc.) into the files of good survey makers. You do this by making applications online to each of them separately.

The challenge will be to locate the good ones that pay in cash or equivalent. There are some 770+ survey makers in the U.S. and 3,000+ worldwide. But only about 20% of these are reliable (won't sell your data to sales companies) and will actually pay in cash or points or gift certificates that can be redeemed for cash.

The best way to find these is through a good paid online surveys guide company. There are many of these that maintain current lists of survey makers, which are good and which are not. For a small one-time membership fee they will give you a copy of their current list of good survey makers.

It is important to understand that there are two ways that paid online survey guide companies make money. One is from the membership fees paid by you and other members. The other is from recruiting fees paid by survey makers. The good survey makers do not pay recruiting fees. Most of the rest do.

So when you encounter "free lists" of survey makers from "free" sites, you know that their entire income comes from recruitment fees and there are not likely to be many if any survey makers that pay in cash on such lists! Even some of the paid membership sites include some survey makers who pay them fees on their lists.

To find a good paid survey guide company look for one with a STRONG 60-90 day money-back guarantee, backed by a bank or financial company such as PayPal or ClickBank. Most important, look for a low refund rate within that guarantee.

Low refund rates mean happy clients. Clients who used their list, took surveys and got paid in cash. Clients who felt that they got their money's worth. High refund rates mean many unhappy clients. Clients who did not make any money with their list and ended up demanding their money back.

Look for a low (3-6%) refund rate. Avoid any paid survey guide company with a refund rate that is either unknown (means high; if it were low they would be bragging about it!) or is as high as 9% or more.

When you choose your guide company and get your copy of their list, it will be important to sign up with every preferred survey maker on the list. You usually average 1-2 surveys a month from each. The more you sign up with the more surveys you get, the more money you make.

So if you decide to have a go at paid online surveys, and do things right (follow the plan above) how much money can you make when you get paid to take online surveys?

Your exact income will depend on your demographics, your diligence in pursuing and taking surveys and the number of good survey makers with which you are signed up. However, most more or less serious survey takers report incomes of $300 to $700 a month with many reporting incomes of $1,000 a month or more.

How To Cure Vampirism In Oblivion

The easiest way to cure vampirism is once you have contracted Hemophilla (Vampire disease) go to a local church and pray at the alter for a cure (seriously). If you have been sick for more than 3 game days you will be a vampire. There are a few pros to being a vampire. One of the best benefits is a great strength, also you have add bonuses and spells. The biggest draw back is the sun begins to harm you and it forces you to walk at night.

Another draw back is people and merchants will refuse you service in your vampire form. The way to lessen the effects is to feed on sleeping NPCs. The best place to find sleeping NPCs is at the stables of any town. There is usually a farm hand asleep on the outside of the stable. Make sure you access that area after 11 pm. Now that you know how to contract,treat, and live with the disease lets talk about the cure.

Once you are a vampire you need to go to the church and talk with someone at the alter. They will send you on a whirlwind tour across the country talking to different people. You will end up at a old woman's house named Draklowe. She will make you a potion, but first she will need a few ingredients. First, she will need 5 Grand Soul Gems. This part of your journey will take you the longest but, with the help of this guide I can save you a few hours. The Five places I have found Grand Soul Gems:

1)Dungeon of Miscarcand (to the west of Skingard)
2)Squardered Mine (next to Draklowe)
3)Imperial Market (Not sure which Vendor)
4)Leyawjjn (Mages Guild)
5)Bravil (Mages Guild)

Once you have the 5 Grand Soul Gems take them to Darklowe and she will give you the next part of the quest. You will need 6 cloves of Garlic, 5 Nightshade leaves and 2 Shoots of BloodGrass. You will also, need the blood of a Argonian and Vampire ashes form a Vampire named Hindaril. All of the ingredients can be found at various mage guilds and markets. The blood of a Argonian is pretty easy (there are the lizard people). There is a bum Argonian wandering around the city of Leyawjjn poke him with the dagger and you good to go. The last piece of the cure is you need to kill a powerful vampire. Darklowe will give you the exact locaction of Hindaril. Once you kill him she will give you the potion and a extra potion for a friend . I hope this guide helps you in your quest. If you have any questions, please email

The Toyota Highlander Drive Around

Flexibility. Power. Space. That is what the Toyota Highlander has in store for its owners and users. Coming as a standard feature for this vehicle is a V6 engine that is large and holds much more power compared to its other siblings as well as other vehicles out in the market. Along with it comes a five speed automatic transmission. These features provide a soft yet quality ride that is quite unmatched in its segment. The engines are very smooth and quiet as well. The Toyota Highlander also comes with an automatic transmission.

The Toyota Highlander has definitely a very flight resemblance to the Lexus RX 330. This vehicle also has kept safety in mind for it provides a very impressive collection of passive safety features. This includes the three point seatbelts and headrests for all seats. The front seats have been specially designed and crafted so as to assist in reducing the possibility of whiplash-type injuries.

The interior of this vehicle could hold both people and cargo as well. It has a spacious cabin that could take in a maximum of five passengers, however there are extra seats at its rear so as to be able to add two more. If the rear seats are folded down flat, it would then reveal a very spacious cargo area which is greater than the Toyota 4Runner. The Toyota Highlander has been made available in two trim levels which comprise of the base trim and the Limited trim.

The base trim level rolls up with a four cylinder engine as well as a front wheel drive. It features air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, a cruise control, cloth upholstery, sophisticated anti-lock brakes, a passenger capacity of five people, and the electronic stability control system. The Limited trim level, on the other hand, finds its way to the streets holding a V6 engine as well as third-row seats. It boasts of its automatic climate control, a JBL sound system with eight speakers, an eight-way power drivers seat with adjustable lumbar support, a four-way power passenger seat, 17 inch aluminum wheels, a roof rack, fog lights, a rear privacy glass, heated mirrors, a remote keyless entry system that has a security system and engine immobilizer with it, a wood-grain interior trim, a steering wheel wrapped in leather as well as a shift knob in leather.

The options given for both trim levels of the Toyota Highlander include a tilt and slide glass sunroof, an in-dash six CD changer, a rear seat DVD system, two wireless headphones, RCA input jacks for video games, side-curtain airbags, seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and a household style 115 volt AC power outlet.
