  1. I have been following your post for sometime now and I could see the zeal and sincerity in almost all your posts… So far you are one very straight forward blogger…I really am interested in making money online but I really need help… For now, making money via smartphone and if all those survey sites is accessible through phones… Please do well to reply me…

    • Thank you, we appreciate. Yes, they are mostly accessible through phone. The major challenge that you will face is that initially, surveys will be few and you won’t qualify for a lost of them. Because they are targeted. Just keep going back and checking your survey invites to complete the ones that you qualify for. With time as you complete a lot, you will build trust, then you will get a lot of surveys. You can try Clixsense
