If you read last week’s blog, you will have been given some tips on how to reclaim your money from companies that should not have taken it from you. Hopefully you will have found this worthwhile – let us know if you have had success!
This week is all about earning money from having an opinion. Yes, you read that correctly – if you have an opinion on anything, then you could potentially make some cash and boost that income!
As part of market research stages, companies and organisations need to test out their products or submit their ideas to the public in order to gain constructive feedback. Groups exist (usually on social media) to marry the public up with these organisations and most will pay for you to tell them what you like about their product/idea and what you would change about it.
Despite living in an online world, some face to face focus groups still take place. You need to sign up with certain agencies that specialise in these focus groups and you could earn up to £150 all from giving your opinion!
Some of the best agencies to look at signing up to are:
Sign up to a few of the survey sites below and get earning by filling in surveys – it can be time consuming but you could walk away with up to £200 per year – but only if you are patient and dedicated.
Remember that you do not have to pay to join these sites – steer clear of the ones that ask you to pay upfront.
Some great survey sites to explore and potentially sign up to are:
Ok, not the real Gogglebox but the premise is similar. If you love TV and watch a lot of it, why not get paid to watch it and give your opinion on the shows? TV production companies advertise for these surveys via social media or you may be able to find one of these opportunities in the above survey sites if you sign up to them.
Retailers and restaurateurs always want to check up on their sites and the customer service levels within them. To do this, they contract mystery shopping agencies.
Give it a try! Let us know if you have any success!
