Product: Paid Survey Authority
Review Summary: Take surveys for a VERY small amount of money that is almost certainly not going offset your monthly membership fee. The website is currently located at http://paidsurveyauthority.com.
Price: $37+ up sells
What It’s All About
You are paying to access a ‘top secret list’ of survey opportunities when in reality they simply link to third party survey websites they are affiliated with. When you sign up and do surveys with their partners, they get a commission.
There is absolutely nothing at all that these people are providing you with for the monthly fee of $37. You could just as easily sign up to these companies yourself for free.
Is Taking Surveys Even Worth It?
No. This is one of the worst ways you could be making money online, period.
You are investing a ton of time into something that will give you the absolute lowest return you could get and there is nothing scalable about it.
FACT: most people are lucky to be making $1-$2 per hour at best taking surveys.
This is due to a range of factors such as:
- Low acceptance rate on a lot of surveys due to demographic and geographic requirements
- Low revenue for each survey you finally get accepted for
- Some companies not paying out
This website is claiming you can easily make an average of $30 per survey or more with each only taking you 15 minutes to complete. That’s $120+ per hour and she makes it clear that you can do as many surveys as you like and earn as much as you want…
Ok, so according to Michelle and her convincing story, I’m all set to be making around 20k per month if I work full-time, just for clicking a few buttons! Unfortunately, everything on this website is fake and I will prove that in a moment.
It is hard to put into words how absolutely and monumentally BS these claims are.
No one is making that kind of money taking surveys, I cannot overstate this enough. The only ones making that kind of money are the ones tricking mass people into joining rubbish like this.
The reality is that at best you’d be working for a fraction of the minimum wage, no where near what this website is claiming. Personally, I think your time is better spent on more productive endeavours, like building a real online business.
The Hype & Deception
Pretty much the entire page is full of deceptive marketing claims that are either grossly exaggerated or flat out lies. No one is making the kind of money they are claiming, Michelle Mcallister is not even a real person and the testimonials are mostly fake.
I don’t know about you but I’m not buying into those obviously fake testimonials and you might be surprised at how common practice paying people to provide testimonials is these days. It’s easy and it’s cheap and all of these rubbish programs are doing it.
They also use ‘geo targeting’ to make you believe there are available opportunities for surveys near you, another guru trick. Along with this their ‘members earnings list’ is supposedly updated every day or two when in reality it is only the date that is refreshed, not the list. They do this to trick you into thinking people are making money right now and the opportunity is ripe for the taking.
Unfortunately, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
They also use generalised ‘work from home’ news clips in the sales video to infer that this is some kind of publicised phenomenon.
Hint: it isn’t.
In no way, shape or form are these guys associated with or endorsed by any reputable company at all let alone a news company like CNN, Forbes or NBC.
This (along with a few other hints) leads me to believe these guys are also behind a string of other scams I am constantly exposing. There are a lot of similarities so it wouldn’t surprise me.
Banned From Payment Processor
They run this scheme through an affiliate network known as ClickBank who process your membership fee and refund requests among other things. They have nothing to do with the actual surveys or anything.
ClickBank is known for working with some of the worst programs on the net so you can imagine my surprise when I saw that they of all companies had booted PSA from the network.
As of writing this you cannot even order or get access to PSA, I decided to do this review anyway since it’s possible they will partner up with someone else in the coming weeks and keep flogging this rubbish.
In order for someone to get the boot like this shows they are either extremely unlucky or as sketchy as I know them to be, personally I’m going with option 2.
This is nothing more than an attempt to trick people into thinking they can make massive money doing paid surveys from home using some ‘secret network and training’. The reality is there’s nothing secret about what they are offering and if you decide to sign up you’ll probably learn this the hard way.
Even the most legit online survey companies in the world are not paying people anywhere near the kind of money PSA are claiming. At the very least if you are convinced you want to do paid surveys etc for cash, then join legitimate companies for free!
I am not exaggerating when I say there is absolutely no value in this service and I definitely do not recommend it.
