Streetbees is a little different from many other paid survey and GPT (get-paid-to) sites.
But is Streetbees legit and a good way to make some extra money, or is it just a waste of time?
In this Streetbees review you will find out what the platform has to offer, in what way it is different from many other similar sites, and what you can expect from joining.
After reading the review, you will easily be able to decide whether it is worth it for YOU to join Streetbees or not.
What is Streetbees and what does the platform offer?
Streetbees is an interesting site – or more correctly an interesting app. You can sign up on the website, but most tasks are offered to you through the Streetbees app.
Compared to many other paid survey sites and GPT sites, the ways you can earn are a bit different. It is not only “normal” surveys you can take. You instead get what is called tasks, and a part of these are sometimes to answers questions/surveys as well.
There are many kinds of tasks, and they are often more or less different from task to task. So it is not possible to describe the exact tasks, you will be able to take. But there are some elements that are often a part of the Streetbees tasks, so let’s go over these below, so you have an idea about what to expect.
Before going over the elements that are often a part of the tasks, it can be helpful to understand that the overall goal of Streetbees is to provide insight to companies about consumers’ preferences and behavior. They do this by getting you to provide information about your habits and then paying you for this information. That is why you will be able to get paid to do some of the tasks described below:
Tasks that include recording small videos:
Some tasks require you to make small video recordings. This is to get information about how you do certain things in your life. It can for example be to make a recording while you clean. Or take a short video while you are making tea.
It makes sense that they are interested in this kinds of videos. They can provide a lot of useful information about consumer behavior. Sometimes probably better information than when people answer surveys. When it is a video, the companies can see what you actually do, and not only what you say, as it is not always the same for many of us:-)
So small video recordings are a part of several of the tasks on Streetbees.
Survey based tasks:
There are also tasks that are more similar to the regular paid surveys that most survey sites offer. Paid surveys can be great, if you join the good survey sites, so I think it is great that Streetbees also have some of these.
It simple means that you will have to answer different questions about a certain topic and this way share your opinion and experiences. Compared to the video tasks, it is easier to do no matter where you are. Questions are often a part of the other tasks as well, as it is a way to get more information.
Tasks that include taking photos:
Streetbees also has a number of tasks that require you to take a photo or several photos in a specific situation. It can for example be taking a photo while you are making coffee, or it can be to take several photos, while you are out shopping.
Often you then also have to answer a few questions in relation to the photos. This is a great way for the companies to get insight into your preferences and how you do things, but it can also be fun for you to participate in, so in my opinion it is a great option.
Become a Streetbees ambassador
As you can see above, there are many different kinds of tasks, and you might even be offered some tasks that are very different from what I have described above. One thing many of them have in common is that you are doing them while doing something else – maybe even while you are out of your house and on the street (that is why it is called Streetbees I assume).
There is however another way you can earn some extra money, and that is by becoming a Streetbees ambassador.
In short, a Streetbees ambassador is someone that helps the platform to expand in your country. This is not a full time job or anything like this. It is mostly for students who are used to using social media, who can influence other people, and who has 2-3 hours a week to do this work.
What you need to do is to spread the word about Streetbees by referring friends and family to participate in the tasks. You also have the chance to help with running social media campaigns in your country.
You will get paid every time a person you have invited completes a task. How much you get paid will depend on the country you live in and the task. On Streetbees’ website it also says that you will get training, and you will might also have the opportunity to get an internship at Streetbees New York or London office.
You have to apply on Streetbees’ website to become an ambassador. So if you like Streetbees and would like to earn a little extra by promoting it, it can be worth considering applying for this.
How do you get paid?
When you take a task on Streetbees, you will get the money into you Streetbees account. From here you can get them out through PayPal. I personally think it is great when sites offer PayPal as a payment method, as it is a very easy and fast way to get your money.
If you live in a country where PayPal is not available, you can get paid by mobile top up. These two are the only payout methods that are available.
How much money can you make?
Streetbees can make you some extra pocket money, but you should not expect to be able to quit your job after you join.
The amount of tasks that are available to you, and how much they pay, depends a lot on the country you live in. So in some countries you will not very often have available tasks, and in others you will have several tasks a week you can do.
But no matter where you live, you should not join, if you want to join to make a living. You should join, if you would like to make some extra pocket money, if you would like to give feedback to companies, and if you think the tasks are fun to do.
With the right expectations, it can be great to join, but if you expect more, you will be disappointed and the tasks will end up being boring and tedious.
Who can join?
Streetbees is available in 87 countries. So if you are interested in joining, you just need to check if the app is available in your country. You have to be 18 years old to be able to join.
You can join on Streetbees website, or you can go to your app store and download the app. It is available for Android and iOS.
Often you are not allowed to use survey or GPT sites, when you are in another country than where you registered. That is not the case for Streetbees. You are actually encouraged to check the app, when you are traveling. The tasks are determined by your location, so you will just be offered the tasks that are available in the country you are in. Be aware that the tasks will be in the local language, so if you are in a country, where you do not speak the language, it is not possible for you to participate.
Can you get support?
If you need support, Streetbees has several ways you can contact them. You can send an email (you can find the contact info on the website), or you can contact them through one of the many social media channels where Streetbees has a profile.
Streetbees is quite active on especially Facebook and Twitter, so it might be worth contacting them there, if you need to get a quick reply.
One thing that is clear is that Streetbees is not a scam. It is a legit opportunity to make some extra pocket money. But let’s sum up the pros and cons to give you a better overview before deciding whether it is a platform for you or not.
- Fun and varied tasks
- Available in many countries
- Pays through PayPal
- Not as many opportunities as on regular survey sites
- Not big earning potential
Whether Streetbees is a platform worth joining really depends on your preferences. It can be a fun way to earn a bit extra, but personally I prefer survey sites with daily opportunities, as the earning potential is bigger here. However, because Streetbees offers different opportunities from many other sites and apps, it can be an interesting extra platform to join. Now you know what you can expect and then make a decision based on this.
