Here it is, 3:00 am on a Friday night, my drunken neighbors are finally asleep and I’m taking a break to report back from the field about a very interesting and well-paying earning opp.
I stumbled onto a company called InspiredOpinions a little over a month ago while looking to expand my participation in Focus Groups/Market Studies, which are among the most lucrative and rewarding online earning opportunities. (See my earlier post with instructions on how to tap into the sea of greenbacks flowing from Focus Groups/Market Studies.) InspiredOpinions is a Schlesinger Associates online community offering high-paying, high-quality surveys and focus group studies, both online and on location.
After you fill out a short registration survey, InspiredOpinions will look for opportunities that fit your profile, and report back to base. Registration takes about five mins., and within a few days you will receive email notifications with potential opportunities. When I received my first invites, I initially thought the operation was a scam because the payouts seemed quite high. Boy, was I glad to be wrong.
Here’s how it works: you’ll receive an email invite with a brief description of the opportunity. Your opportunity, should you choose to accept it, is a click away. You’ll be presented with a short (1-2 mins.) survey, which will determine if you are a fit for the opportunity. Then, you sit back and wait for the email or call to come in with the good news that you are a match for their client’s needs. It took me until my fifth opportunity to get a callback, and after a four-minute phone call from a professional recruiter, I was penciled in for a noon appointment at a large corporate HQ to test some products. I was paid $150 for my one-hour visit, in the form of a gift card (ahem, which one of you hooligans in the back row just called out, “tax free!”?). Then, three days later another recruiter phoned, and set me up with a one-hour online chat session, during which I helped out a well-known clothing manufacturer. My reward was a check for $50. And some fashion tips. Yet another opportunity followed, and a three-minute phone interview netted me a $15 Amazon.com gift card.
All that sounds pretty good, right? Especially when most of us learned the ropes by working for chump change, getting taken advantage of, etc. But that’s not the best so read on, brothers and sisters.
You Ain’t Seen Nothin Yet, Folks
Last week, I was accepted to yet another in-person focus group through InspiredOpinions. The focus group is an ongoing six-month project that will pay me $25 for each 15-minute weekly visit. It’s like money in the bank, the simplest part-time job on the planet. And the “work” is over so quickly that my car seat is usually still warm when I’m ready to leave. Am I weird for feeling a little like a mob heavy, visiting a local biz in need of my “protection,” and chatting for a bit before collecting my weekly payoff?
I am NOT a huge fan of sites that claim to find work for me. As I mentioned in my earlier posting regarding Focus Groups: It’s very simple and effective to simply go to Craigslist and type in “focus group” or “market study” and find high paying opportunities near home… but folks, InspiredOpinions is beyond impressive. Perhaps I just got lucky, but the bottom line is with little effort, you too can receive email notifications of online/offline work that pays extremely well. They do the work for you and they do it well. These opportunities are high paying by anyone’s standards, coming in at around $75-per-hour. Joining InspiredOpinions is as close to a no-brainer as you can get.
My disclaimer: please note that Inspired Opinions offers no incentive to me for bringing this information to you. I get nothing from it. All I ask in return is that if you have an opportunity to share our site CoolWorkIdeas with others, please do so!
