Survey Says - You Can Make Money at Home Taking Surveys
By Ken Shorey
Susan Glaser is an opinionated, irritating person to be around. She is not
the best person to work with. She knows everything. She has an opinion
about everything. I am sure you know someone who fits this description.
Susan is so free with her opinions that people are afraid to ask her about
anything. She can go on for hours about what she thinks about everything
from dish washing detergent, to the newest Ford truck.
Susan never stops telling everyone her opinion on how the world and
everyone in it should talk walk and act. She offers opinions on what make
and model of car you should drive. Unfortunately, it is never the make or
model of the car you own.
No one likes talking to Susan because she is always in a talking mode.
Susan is always sharing her opinions about someone or something. Susan is
usually left alone at lunch time because no one wants to endure her non-stop
A few months ago, Susan came to work wearing some very snazzy designer
clothes. Now everyone was asking each other in quiet tones, how Susan could
afford the clothes. The consensus was the clothes were probably a gift from an
What admirer could endure her constant chattier - no one knew- but everyone
wanted to know.
The next month, Susan drove to work in a new car. Then the gossip mill really
got going. The office workers concluded that perhaps Susan was engaged in
some illegal activity or perhaps a rich aunt or uncle had passed away and left
The interesting part to the Susan story is all of a sudden, Susan stopped talking
so much. Office workers tried to engage Susan in conversations but Susan would
only respond with brief succinct responses to questions and stop talking.
When Susan went to the water cooler, four or five or her co-workers would literally
run to try to get to the cooler before she left. Everyone wanted to know what was the source of Susan's new money. But Susan stopped talking.
Susan, unknown to her colleagues, had discovered a way to make her
opinions not only count but learn extra cash. In addition to prizes, incentives
and a sense of doing something that counted, Susan's opinions were
suddenly worth something.
Susan found a profitable outlet for her firm opinions
about everything. Susan was making money taking online surveys.
Susan was constantly filling out online forms to voice her opinion on
coffee, soaps, television shows, and thousands of other products.
Susan received cash and differ rent prizes for her opinions.
Susan realized that her opinions mattered to companies who conducted
research using surveys and test groups. What Susan colleagues did not realize
is that what Susan freely revealed to them on a daily basis was worth money to
corporations who created new products.
Every year, companies spend millions of dollars to find tastier items. more efficient
gadgets, or improved products that they will sell to the public. However, some of
these million dollar babies are complete flops.
Without input from customers, some very expensive product launches have fizzled
because consumers rejected a products for a variety of reasons.
Everyone remembers the huge flop of "The New Coke". Consumers rejected this
product hands down. The Coca Cola company eventually recalled their new recipe
coke and reverted to the original formula.
To avoid making multi-million dollar errors, companies have consumers review their products before they launch the new product spending additional money on advertising campaigns.
Susan Graver found her perfect niche in taking surveys. Her specific expertise
allowed her to take enough surveys online to pay for her new car and buy some designer clothes. Susan was the perfect participant because she had so much to say and no one wanted to listen except companies who needed her opinion on new products.
Marketing is a multi-billion dollar global business. Companies need to know what
the consumer wants so they can fill that need with an existing product or a new one.
This is why the opinion of the consumer is important. Companies are willing to pay
the consumer with rewards, incentives and cash to find out what they are thinking.
Being opinionated may be irritating to your family and co-workers but as Susan
Graver proved sometimes your bad characteristics can earn you money.
