As of late, I have been attempting to expand my consciousness of money. This results from several realities, including the fact that I am highly critical of free market capitalism yet think it is important for people to accrue wealth for themselves. With that thought in mind, I am interested in sharing information with individuals regarding how they can build wealth. Here are three strategies:
1. Participation In Studies.
In discussing money-making ideas, wikiHow notes that you can sign up for a local focus group. They also state that “Studies that you are eligible to participate in pop up sporadically but pay quite well – often more than $50 for an hour of your time. You can also look for focus groups online but will have to sort through a lot of bogus “opportunities” and sites that ask you to pay up-front for the privilege of participating before you find anything worthwhile.”
2. Become A Mystery Shopper.
Mystery shoppers get paid to go into stores undercover and evaluate their shopping experience based on varying criteria. In general, the idea is to determine whether or not the store that is frequented provided quality customer service and valuable products. Pay for work as a mystery shopper will vary, and you should take into consideration the fact that this type of work requires discreteness. Additionally, you may be required to have your own money to purchase products before being reimbursed by your employer.
3. Write Product Reviews.
If you have writing ability or are simply willing to do it in order to earn extra cash, you should consider writing product reviews. In discussing the value of writing product reviews, wikiHow notes that “Many companies will pay a lot more than two cents for your two cents. Product reviews are a great way to get paid for being opinionated that doesn’t require the writing background that many other writing jobs do.” Since this is the case, you might want to write a few product reviews and see whether or not it’s the type of work you’d be interested in.
If you are struggling to make the money that you want to live a comfortable and pleasurable life, you should consider the money making strategies I have listed above. You may find that they become viable mediums through which you gain income when you are between jobs or simply want extra money. Good luck! :)
