5 Reasons To Make SurveyJunkie Your Next Side Hustle

There are several reasons why someone might choose to have a side hustle as an online survey taker for SurveyJunkie. Here are five possible reasons:

1. Flexibility: Online survey taking allows for flexibility in terms of working hours. As a survey taker, you can typically choose when and where you want to complete surveys. This flexibility is especially beneficial for individuals who have other commitments such as a full-time job, studies, or family responsibilities.

2. Extra Income: One of the primary motivations for having a side hustle is to earn additional income. SurveyJunkie offers compensation to survey takers for completing surveys. While the income may vary depending on factors like survey length and complexity, it can be a convenient way to supplement your regular income or save up for specific goals.

3. Low Entry Barrier: Starting as an online survey taker usually has a low barrier to entry. SurveyJunkie, for example, allows individuals to sign up easily and start taking surveys without requiring specialized skills or experience. This accessibility makes it an attractive option for people looking to earn money without needing extensive training or qualifications.

4. Work from Anywhere: Online survey taking provides the opportunity to work from anywhere with an internet connection. Whether you prefer to work from the comfort of your home, a coffee shop, or while traveling, as long as you have access to the internet, you can take surveys and earn money. This flexibility can be particularly appealing for digital nomads or individuals seeking location-independent work.

5. Variety and Engagement: Participating in online surveys exposes you to a range of topics and provides an opportunity to share your opinions. This can be interesting and engaging for individuals who enjoy expressing their thoughts, providing feedback, or learning about different subjects. It can also serve as a way to stay updated on market trends, consumer preferences, and new products or services.

In the video above, J.T. explains what she stands for in her work… respect.

If you haven’t heard, J.T. is on a mission to help 10 million people get new, better paying jobs. She was recently asked what she stands for in her career, and her response was “to help people get new, better paying jobs”. But she realized, that’s not what she stands for, she stands for respect.

J.T. stands for job seekers getting the respect they want and deserve in their careers.

The way job seekers are going to gain respect, is by staying relevant. We live in an age where evidence based hiring is becoming more and more prominent. You have to be able to prove you have the value and will be worth an employer’s investment.

The person who does the best job at conveying their value (AKA their brand), is the person who is going to get the job. If your brand is broken, you’re going to have a harder time staying relevant and receiving that respect.

Respect = Relevant = Brand

If you know you deserve more respect in your career and think your brand may be broken, check out J.T.’s TikTok or the Work It DAILY YouTube channel. She has recently created many helpful videos about fixing your brand. The best part? Her advice on these platforms is 100% FREE!

We can’t wait to help you gain the respect you deserve!
