By | January 23, 2016

How would you like to prove the case…?

Are Surveys good for your website / Blog? How are you going to establish if they are worth putting up on your website..?

Or are they just an MMO..? (Make Money Online) or should that read a scam..!

A lot of my friends have said to me if they see a survey on a website they just run a mile, from that site.

Is this true for all you people, it can not be so, as in some areas of internet activity you will fine them on many websites and some of these sites have many different instances of surveys on the same page..?

So; Are Surveys Good For Your Website…?

Do I do surveys? yes, just where I give an opinion like a yes or no answer to a situation or where you make a simple choice type survey and that’s it.

No money to be made there!

Is it good to do online surveys..?

Here is a short story for today

I have brought up this subject because a friend of mind, that I know quite well began filling out all kinds of surveys in the innocent believe that, “what’s the harm in doing endless surveys online“, if you enjoy doing them?

Well some days later this person was about to realise that there is no action online that does not have a reaction?

Her email box was so full she thought she had won the lottery.

What was she to do now..?

Well you cannot read them all..? can you..!

What must I do she asked with a tear in her eye.

Well it’s not often that I slightly raise my voice to a lady?

I just had to say to her Delete them all, and do it now, and she replied, all of them? Yes all of them and your email address as well!

No no I can’t do that, all my friends far and wide have my email address..!

Yes I said, and at this rate of going, half of the country will have it too..?

I am afraid it’s called SPAM, no you got it wrong she replied, that name sounds like a sandwich filling!

I am very sorry but you can do as I say or ask elsewhere what is the best thing to do..? I will, she replied swiftly, like she had just seen her redeemer..?

Some days later I meet her in the city centre, and I asked her quite politely what she had done about her email problem?

I sold my old computer in a car boot sale?

Is that a good thing I asked her, well yes, I’ll not have no email problems now?

Okay, so it’s not a survey!

But how are you going to email all your friends I asked, her reply was I bought a new computer and a new email address! a wise choice, well done.
