Welcome to my Survey Sheep review. Today we’re going to be looking into whether or not this is a legitimate way to make some money or if it’s just another scam and a waste of your time.
From my experience with these types of sites they never pay out a great deal and as such can be an awful waste of your time when you consider how much time you spend filling out the actual surveys.
Not forgetting that once you’ve taken the time to start filling it in you could still get the dreaded “Sorry, this survey is not suitable for you” type of message.
This review will answer any questions you might have regarding this site, so hold on to your hats for what will be an interesting ride.

What Exactly Is Survey Sheep?
You’re probably thinking that Survey Sheep is going to give you surveys to complete, right? Wrong. All this does is supply a list of different survey companies.
They themselves don’t actually have any surveys, they are just like a middleman between you and the real survey company, like this one here.
And of course, for introducing you to any of these companies will result in Survey Sheep getting a commission.
How Does It Work?
The sign up process is really easy, all you need is your name, an email address and your D.O.B. You then get taken to the welcome page where they give you some survey tips, one of them is an absolutely crazy thing to say.
They reckon that if you are committed you can make a full-time income form taking surveys!
I’ve never heard such rubbish, and besides which look at how many survey options I have:
Not exactly going to earn a full-time income from that now am I.
So, basically you get shown different survey companies and you decide which ones you like the look of and click on the link to get taken to the respective site where you then need to fill in your details, and you do that for each site you want to join.
And if there are a few I can imagine that getting quite annoying. I was hoping Survey Sheep would at least let you fill in you information once and then use that for all the other sites so you don’t have to go through the whole process again and again.
What’s the Point of Survey Sheep?
Well, as I’ve already said they get a kickback for every person they send to the survey companies, but not only that, it actually looks like they might sell your email address as well.
So, be prepared for some unsolicited emails in your inbox!
It would seem that the point of this site is to purely make money from you, they are just using their referral link to earn commission and possibly also sell email lists.
The survey companies they recommend aren’t matched to you like they claim, they’re just the ones that pay the most referral fees.
How Much Can You Earn?
That’s a difficult question to answer seeing as they send you off to other companies. All those companies are different in what they pay you.
Some might pay cash via PayPal, some might pay you with gift cards, but how much they pay really does depend on what you have to do in the first place.
As a general rule for surveys you can normally expect to be paid anything from $0.25 to a maximum of $2 if you’re lucky and I mean really lucky cause even if they advertise that price a lot of the time you won’t be approved to take the survey anyway.
So, as far as their claim of earning a full-time income is concerned I think you can disregard that.
How Do You Get Paid?
Again, that is down to the individual sites, but every one of these site that I have come across usually has a payout threshold which means you have to accumulate a certain amount before you can even think of cashing out.
I’ve seen some sites with a $50 threshold and reports of people eventually getting near after a lot of work only to find themselves with a distinct lack of any further surveys to complete, thus not being able to reach the payout threshold.
There always seems to be some sort of problem with payouts with this kind of thing which is extremely annoying to say the least.
What I Liked
- Easy sign up process
- Easy to navigate around the site
- No joining fee
What I Didn’t Like
- Lack of opportunities
- Only a middleman
- Having to input your data for all different companies
- Possibility of having your email sold
- Can be a waste of time
- Payment not made by Survey Sheep
Who’s Going To Use This?
I think the type of person who would use this is going to be someone who hasn’t had any experience with survey companies before and doesn’t really know where to start.
But, you can easily go straight to the various companies like Swagbucks and sign up directly.
I found this to be a rather pointless site, I don’t think the owners are really that bothered about it judging by the basic layout of the site, it’s there purely to capture emails and get referral fees.
In the course of other reviews, I’ve tried surveys and to be quite honest I’ve never been impressed with them.
You spend way too much time doing them and a lot of the time you get halfway through a survey only to be told you don’t qualify!!!
Is Survey Sheep legitimate? As far as the site goes, yes it is legitimate, but I think the better question is will it make you any money? I have to say yes because the one option it gave me was Swagbucks and I know that people do earn a bit of pocket money using that site.
But as far as this site is concerned I don’t think they offer enough value to their customers for me to approve this.
The time you spend filling out your details over and over again and filling out survey after survey could be so much better spent, not only that, but much more financially rewarding.
I found that affiliate marketing is THE way to make the most of my time and you can do the same, I didn’t even know what that was before I got involved in it, that was over 4 years ago now, probably a bit longer than that actually.
Did you know that with Affiliate Marketing you have a fantastic opportunity to turn a hobby or something you’re passionate about into a full time income.
The main thing you need is a website.
Don’t know the first thing about building a website or how to make money from one? Don’t worry I didn’t either when I first started, but if I can do it then anyone can do it, believe me.
The good thing is you don’t even need to pay anything to see if it’s for you.
