Has your wallet taken a beating during the current recession? Are you looking for ways to make some extra money? Believe it or not, you can be paid to surf the web by Nielsen Ratings. While it's true that you won't make a ton of money (unless you win one of their drawings), you are guaranteed to make a few extra dollars each quarter plus be automatically entered into some great drawings for larger cash and product prizes that are given away throughout the year.
Why Nielsen Ratings Is Willing To Pay You
Here is how it works. Nielsen Ratings is paid by large companies to collect data on the web surfing habits of people. They are able to determine:
1.) The types of sites people enjoy visiting.
2.) Which websites are the most popular.
3.) How often their own websites are visited by the public.
This data is invaluable because it helps companies position themselves to attract more web traffic, determine what to charge advertisers for advertising space, and see how effective their current websites are.
Nielsen Ratings needs to have volunteers in order to determine which websites are visited the most, and which websites people love. While most people volunteer their time freely for humanitarian projects, most aren't interested in helping companies like Nielsen Ratings unless there is compensation involved.
How You Are Rewarded
That is why Nielsen Ratings pays a small sum of cash each quarter to volunteers who help them with their research. In addition to your quarterly payment you are also entered into drawings for a big cash giveaway plus hundreds of instant prizes. The best part is, you don't have to fill out surveys and other stuff to reap the benefits...you simply surf the net like you always do after signing up and downloading their proprietary software. Thankfully the software does not slow down or interfere with the normal operations of your computer.
If you're interested in getting paid to surf the net, have a chance at winning some really big prizes, and having an impact on the future of the internet, becoming part of the Nielsen Ratings family is an easy way to do it.
