One of our readers asked me an opinion about Iglobal Surveys. I didn’t have any personal experience of their service back then. I decided that I will make a review about Iglobal Surveys so all our readers know what it is .
Is it a quick way to make good money online or another boring survey site?
Let’s find out.

Field: Online Surveys
Overall Rank: 25 out of 100
iGlobal Surveys is another survey sites that gives you a little reward for giving your time and opinion on different products. It works with the same idea as other survey sites like Clixsense, Toluna and Opinion World.
Why does someone want to pay you for answering surveys?
Companies want feedback about their products so they could make their products better, brand them in a way that they want and increase the sales. Companies collect the feedback in different ways but one practical way are online surveys.
The company pays the consumer a little reward (for example $0,50) to give a feedback. Let’s say that they collect 100 opinions and pay $0,50 for the each one. It costs them $50 but they have got incredibly valuable information what clients really think about their products.
Many times the questions are also related to their brand so the companies will know how their branding is working.
Just like in most of the other survey sites, they have a referral system in IGS. So you can earn money by referring people to join. I will explain more about it further.
In one survey, there can be tens or even hundreds of little questions. Here are some examples what kind of questions there can be:
Have you ever used the following products?
What kind of words comes to your mind when you think about Coca-Cola?
In the beginning of almost every survey you will need to fill personal information about yourself:
1.Where do you live?
2.How many people live in your house?
3.How much money do you earn annually?
4.What is your highest education?
After filling your personal information you will be either qualified to answer the whole survey or disqualified because you were not person they were looking for. If you are not qualified for the survey, naturally they won’t give you any reward.
You may imagine it can be to fill out the same personal information about yourself 5 times and get disqualified 5 times. It’s just a waste of your time.
Let’s be honest right away. Not very much.
For every survey you may earn like $1 but it will take 20 minutes to fill one survey. So if you would be able to fill three surveys in one hour you could earn $3. Compare how much you are earning in your 9-5 job. Probably 5-10 times more.
The problem with online surveys is that they don’t require any skills or real efforts. Anyone can do them without learning or education. Compare to normal jobs. Usually, you get paid more when you have better skills and you provide better value for the company.
A pilot who had just started is probably earning like $30,000/year while a pilot with 15 years of experience can earn up to $200,000/year or even more. When a pilot gets more experience, he earns more. But despite of your experience in online surveys you can’t earn more than $5/hour.
The reality is that most of us are not ready to sacrifice 20 years to become a $200,000/year earning pilot. But I am glad to tell you that your incomes can increase exponentially online.
In the last post I explained about 5 internet marketers who are earning +$10,000/month (=+$120,000/year). One of them achieved that income with only one year of experience. The other one with three years of experience but now the same guy is earning +$20,000/month which equals to $250,000/year. The potential to add your income online fast is way better than as a pilot.
When you leave your link somewhere and someone registers through your link and completes a survey, you will get paid some commissions.
You will be paid $0,50 for the each survey that your referral completes. In my opinion, it’s quite good.
The picture above how many referrals would you need to earn certain amount of money. Then if we go further 500 referrals who complete 5 surveys a month = $15,000/year. You could live a luxurious life with that money in China! (at least some kind of luxury 😉
But there is one little problem. Completing surveys take so much time that it’s not recommended. So if it’s not recommended to join, why would you refer anyone? Well, if someone is living in a country where $2/hour is a good salary then he could consider filling these surveys and make referral income for you.
But if you are earning $10/hour or more in any job, answering surveys should be totally out of a question.
When I read a few reviews about IGS I saw that at least one website owner was suffering from the slow loading time. He said also that iGlobalSurveys.com page was down for several days some time ago.
When I tried iGlobal Surveys the website worked well most of the time but I must admit that the loading time was sometimes bigger than normally.
One reason why you can’t find many complaints of iGlobal Surveys yet is that they don’t have so many users as in the bigger survey sites and their company is also relatively new.
As you found out above I am not a big fan of online surveys because of the low earning potential. But if you are anyway interested in filling online surveys I would recommend Clixsense or Toluna.
They are probably the biggest one out there with about 15 million users in total. There are also other ways to earn money on those sites, like paying ads and playing little games.
But if you are wise, you stay far away from online surveys and look for the better ways to make money online.
My recommendation is affiliate marketing because it’s simple, anyone can learn it and there is very high earning potential.
In a nutshell, it works like this:
1.You build a website (it’s possible in 30 seconds nowadays -> learn how!)
2.You get traffic to your website (Learn how to get traffic)
3.Visitors click your links and you make money.
This is a simplified 3 step formula to affiliate marketing online. If you are willing to learn the details I recommend to join Wealthy Affiliate for FREE. (Please, put your credit card away!)

I believe you found this review explains you well what is iGlobal Surveys and is it a good way to make money or not. If you liked it, don’t hesitate to share it on social media.
Do you have personal experience of iGlobal Surveys or other survey sites? What is your opinion?
Have you ever felt unmotivated to start your work and get it done? Have you ever thought how to motivate yourself to work? Don’t worry probably all of us feel it sometimes.
But the difference between the winners and the losers is how they react to that feeling. The losers will give the feeling win. The winners can change their feeling and after 5 minutes they will feel motivated to work again. How do they do it? I have a trick for you.
After reading this text you don’t need to wonder anymore how to motivate to work.
When you feel the unwillingness to work what do you usually do?
Do you scroll Facebook’s news feed?
Do you play something TOTALLY USELESS with your phone?
Do you organize your papers?
Do you read blogs on the Internet?
Notice one thing: Usually, you are doing something. You are doing something that you shouldn’t.
You are doing something that seems useful but still it’s not the work that you should be doing.
Try my exercise!
I want to mention that this exercise is highly effective if you do it well.
The point is that you don’t give yourself an alternative to doing something that would feel somehow useful. Don’t start to read the newspaper when you are doing the exercise. Don’t start to plan your weekend.
The idea is not to do anything.
You are giving yourself two alternatives:
1.Not doing anything
If you are a human being, homo sapiens, sooner or later you want to choose the alternative number 2, working.
Some people fail because they give themselves more options. They give themselves the option number 3: do something useless that feels somehow useful.
STOP DOING IT NOW!
Step 1 Set 5-minute timer and start
Step 2 Sit down on the floor
Step 3 Don’t to anything.
If you feel like taking your phone, don’t do it. Just sit. Do it for 5 minutes. I mean don’t do anything for 5 minutes. Just sit with your brain OFF-mode.
Let me repeat.
Sooner or later you will feel so bored that working starts to feel very interesting option.
Before the exercise, you can put the 5-minute timer. Start working right away when you feel like it again. Most of the time you don’t want to sit there and wait for 5 minutes because it feels like a long time if you are not doing anything.
In my opinion, motivational techniques can be very useful if you are building your own online business and being your own boss.
This awesome tip was found on one great article where you will find 5 ways to motivate yourself to do work.
I’m willing to hear your experiences after doing the exercise. What did you think about the other 4 ways to motivate yourself to work?

Before, I didn’t even know that it would be possible to earn money online. The possibility was out there but I wasn’t conscious about it. Another thing that I didn’t know how easily I could find help if I want to earn money online.
Everything changed one day when I was searching from Google “how to make money online” and other search terms.
I went to the page which told me “Earn Money by Selling Products in Amazon.” The author of the website was probably about 25-30 year-old. He had started making a lot of money online and now he taught other people about the same subject.
I went to Wealthy Affiliate from his link and new opportunities opened to me. A lot of helpful people who already had succeeded online wanted to help in my journey.
Probably you have wondered that you would like to earn money online. Or maybe you haven’t been conscious about the possibility like I wasn’t. I can tell you today, It is possible to make money online! And many people are doing it.
First I thought that making money online must be probably something related to cheating other people. How wrong I was!!! Nowadays I know that most of the people earn online 100% legally by providing important value for other people. (Yes there are many scams online and I want to warn you about those. I write reviews of them to my site to “the Bad” -section.)
Actually those provide the best value for people, usually also success best.
If you don’t know personally yet anyone who earns online I can tell that in Wealthy Affiliate you can get to know many of those.
People in Wealthy Affiliate aren’t greedy or overlook but totally contrary. They are positive, encouraging, motivating and helpful. I am very positive person (Check my other blog YourPositivePower) but I was actually surprised how helpful people are in WA.
First I thought that it’s only hype of the founder and salesmen but it was true. People are friendly and they really want to help you!
Members in Wealthy Affiliate are from all around the world. I’m from Finland and I’ve met people from Asia, Africa, America, Europe and so on.
You can ask anything that comes to your mind and you will always get an answer. I have always got an answer to my questions (see the image).
I believe that many times the best way to learn is to listen to those people who have already walked the path that you are about to take (Read the text from my other blog). Now when they have experience, they know what are the typical mistakes and how to avoid them.
They know what they would have done differently if they could start again from the start.
Everyone has once started. No one was an expert in the beginning.
Many times in my life I have thought, “Oh, if I would have known this before I would have done differently. But hey! Now I can share my knowledge with others and probably they can benefit! from it”
That’s one important reason why I’m writing this blog. I want to help people to know the things that they probably don’t know yet. I didn’t know them before but after studying and working I’ve found out.
When you are running an online business, did you know that your friends can be some kind of experts also even though they wouldn’t have own experience about business?
Your friends can watch your business with the customers’s eyes. Would they buy from you if they wouldn’t know you but would be interested in the subject? They can give important insights what kind of thing they point out in your website and how they feel about spending time there.
Many times we are not conscious about the possibilities around us. I didn’t know how easy is to get help for making money online in Wealthy Affiliate.
That’s why it’s good that we spend time with different people, search from the internet and keep our minds open.
If you want personal help to earn money online I can fully recommend to start from Wealthy Affiliate.
Thank you for reading, I hope you caught a glimpse how easy is to get help to your online business nowadays!
