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 why applying to hundreds of jobs won’t help you get a job any faster.

If you are a job seeker, and are using this method of applying to as many jobs as you can, it’s time to stop. You’re probably not getting very many interviews, and there’s a reason for this. You don’t have a personal connection to any of these companies, and they know that. You’re not standing out in any way.

Instead, we suggest finding the top 20 companies you would love to work for. You need to be able to explain why you love each of these companies, you need to create a connection story. Once you have this connection story, it’s time to get it into the hands of real employees at these companies.

By just applying online, you’re not able to share this personal connection and you will most likely get tossed just like the hundreds of other applicants.

If you want to learn more about how to create a connection story and get that story into the hand of real people, Work It DAILY can help.

Our job search coaching platform was designed to help job seekers just like you land better jobs more efficiently.
