I promised awhile ago that I would get a series together of ways to earn a little extra cash from home. I have been slowly researching credible companies and talking to people that do them regularly. I am familiar with some myself but not all of them. So to make it easy I thought I would highlight one company at a time and if you have a little extra time you can get started earning extra income every week!
The first I wanted to talk about is Ipsos Survey Company. You can register HERE and you will start receiving survey invitations. If you are a mom you will want to register HERE and if you are male you will want to register HERE. If you are selected to take the survey you can accumulate points that can be redeemed for prizes- like gift cards to places such as Amazon or for various products. They also ask for product testing so you might get chosen for a survey to test a fun new product and then you get to keep it! I have many people that email me frequently asking how to get into product reviews and this is one way to do it!
The subject matter in the surveys they send varies considerably- so you may answer questions about frozen foods or about light bulbs. They will be looking for a specific demographic so you won’t get selected for each survey but you should get several invitations each month to apply for.
I asked a few people that work with Ipsos what their opinions were and everyone I spoke with indicated it was a pretty simple way to earn rewards. One friend I spoke to said she actually got $25 for a 20 minute survey from Ipsos- that sounds good to me!
One tip if you want to get started with some of these companies is to set up a separate email account so that everything is in one place. I used to do a lot of these programs (before the blog!) and what I would do is just sit with the laptop in the evening while my husband was watching TV. During commercials or whatever I would get through quite a bit of applications and it always seemed to go pretty quickly and it didn’t feel like such a chore.
Thanks to Nicole’s Nickel’s for great info on getting started with Ipsos!
