Work from Home IDEA of the WEEK 

    This is a new series which will be labeled as ‘Idea of the Week’.  I see SO many opportunities and ideas that I wanted to start making them available to YOU. Check the category listing – Job of the Week to see other ideas. You can also submit your own on the contact us above and I would be happy to give you ‘guest blogging’ credit with a link back to your site!


    You may hear a lot about At Home Surveys, and think…  is it all a HOAX?  Then you have completely misunderstood.


    Here are the NUTS and BOLTS of it:


    Wanna go straight there? = ExpressSurveys

    An example:


    A Survey company is hired by an Athletic Shoe Company… The Athletic Shoe company is getting killed by it’s competition and it wants to know why. They deposit funding to the survey company to do market research and supply the shoe peeps with the info they require.

    Then the survey company goes through its database of surveyers and based on age, location, education and other vital info, they select who they would like to include in the survey. Depending on the funding arrangements, you will either get paid for your TIME (if its part of an online group questionaire called a FOCUS Group) or you will get paid to complete the survey.  Not everyone is appropriate to answer questions about what they like to see in an athletic shoe and which commercial campaign created which emotional response.  


    Bottom line - as I was writing this, I was actually getting excited about the idea of having a way to earn from being a 30 something college educated work at home mother  living in another country and possessing lots of random useless info and emotions.  This sounds like a lot of fun and a great business model for a partially intelligent human being looking for some extra cash.


    Could this offer a guaranteed full time income? It would depend on your profile and if that matches up against the companies they have lined up needing their services. Most importantly, if they have a line up of companies requiring their services! They cannot guarantee to always have surveys for you to fulfill.


    To succeed will be about confidence and attitude (having some smarts wouldnt hurt). Do you value your opinion and think you have what to offer? Do you have a random knowledge of lots of things? Well, if someone is willing to pay for that, then why not? 



    There is no lack of opportunities,
