Yes and No.
There are countless 'Paid Survey' products being sold on the market these days which features hundreds and thousands of survey site listings.
Yes because: If you are planning to create a full time income (>$5000/month), then you will need to buy paid survey products, each consisting of thousands of network listings you can apply to. Many career surveyors often outsource parts of their work to cheaper english speaking staffs from India/Philippines/Indonesia/Thailand etc. and pay them about $0.20/survey. These are very profitable real life businesses being run these days where you pick/categorize the surveys into categories. Roughly 1% of surveys pay out >$10, 20% ($5-$10), 30% ($2-$5), and 49% (<$2) Yes, although almost 50% of surveys pays about $1, but these surveys are plentiful and extremely easy to participate in. Mostly are opinion based where you're just asked to look at images and pick the ones you prefer (logos, design, etc). The beauty in this is that you can outsource hundreds of these surveys daily to our outsourced staffs and pay them 20cents a survey! (I know coz I AM doing this). Done properly, you can easily profit $100/day/person!. Imagine if you outsource to TWO persons, that would give you an additional $100/day profit.
No because: For those who are just starting and and do not know if this line of work is for them, then its best NOT to buy 'Paid survey' products because you will simply be overloaded with the tens of thousands of networks availble, with no idea on how to sort them accordingly, or to know which are the best pay masters. If you are just starting out, or if you are someone who has been overloaded with TONNES of survey network sites from paid survey products before, then do yourself a favour and apply to the Top 5 paid survey networks I have listed above.
