In Person Surveys

It’s a way for companies to get consumer opinions before releasing a product, service or ad campaign. The great thing about this work is that it allows you to get some sneak peeks at upcoming products and it pays well. The bad thing is that the work is not very regular and the jobs that are out there are hard to get. You have to add your name to a database and just hope that you get a call.
