Investing Your Time to Make Money
There is an old saying: “you have to have money to make money.” With today’s advancements in technology, this could not be further from the case. If you know where to look, then making money just from your time is easy. These type of jobs do not require any skills what so ever, just time.
Now before you get excited, you must know that the majority of people who attempt this do not actually make a fulltime living off of it, no matter what the ads tell you. These types of jobs are good for people such as college students, stay at home moms, or people looking for a small amount of additional income.
Now, take for example, you are walking through the grocery store and you go to a booth that is offering a taste of the latest food. Once you finish the sample, the lady behind the booth asks “So how did you like it?” you reply with your answer and she writes it down and give you a coupon for the actual product. Did you know that you just unknowingly took a survey about that product. In much of the same fashion, online business ask you to try their product or service, and then tell them what you liked and did not like about it. This helps companies imporve and tailor their products and services so that they reach the most customers.
One of the largest make money for free is taking surveys. Thousand of programs are available that directs you to the surveys, some of which require a membership fee, while others do not. The membership fees are typically small, usually less then $40. Once you sign up, you will either have a page that you visit daily to check for new surveys, or have new surveys emailed to you as they come in.
Most survey companies will ask about your life situation and your interests. While this may seem nosey, the real reason is so that the company to match you with surveys that match you interests. The more information you provide, the better opportunities you will have.
Some survey’s require you to purchase their product or service before you can take the survey. However, once you complete the survey, not only do they pay you for finishing it, but they also reimburse you the amount of money you spent initially.
You will want to take special care when searching for jobs that do not require money. The internet is full of “get rich quick” schemes. While the promotions may seem great, chances are they are either extremely hard to accomplish, or bogus. Another old saying works well in this situation: “It is sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.”
So lets say for example you sign up with a survey company. The next day you receive an email telling you that you are eligible for a survey though a popular online video rental website, and you will receive $20.00 for taking the survey. To receive the service, you must pay $9.99 initially, which covers a month of service. One you analyze the service, you will then take the survey. Once the survey is complete, your account will be credited with the $20.00 for taking the survey, and the $9.99 that you spent on the service.
