PART 10: CONSUMER RESEARCH

There are tons of companies that are interested in getting the opinion of customers for their business, product, website or service. Some of these may require you to appear in person.

In most cases though they are going to want you to test out their product and then provide feedback on it. In some instances you might even get to keep the product.




10.1 Product Testing

We all like things, but what we like even more are things we don’t have to pay for. How about testing products and getting paid to do so?

10.6 Mystery Shopping

Many businesses are interested in being “mystery shopped” which essentially means you are pretending to be a legitimate customer. I’ve done this before and it works great in the hospitality field such as by writing restaurant reviews.




Often you have to go to the site and perform some tasks (for example sit down and order a meal). Later when you return you fill out a survey (did the waiter say hello, that sort of thing) as well as a quick write up.

Payment often includes the cost of the meal AND a set wage per project (varies but could easily be $25-$50 and potentially more). It’s great if it is a place you are already interested in going to, like a restaurant, since the budgets for meals can be pretty high.

The only catch is that with many of the companies you have to be at least 24.
