Do you want to earn money from home?

To be able to earn more money from home in 2019, all you need is an internet connection and a bit of IT knowledge.

No longer are working from home jobs all scams or marketing pyramid schemes, companies are now using more and more remote workers as a modern workforce demands flexibility and life balance.

There are so many reasons we want to be able to earn money at home these days. In our house, it was for childcare reasons initially. We have three children and childcare costs proved to high to make an outside the home job a workable option.

Other people hate the commute in rush hour, or the lack of control over their time. Whatever your reasons, people who have the ability to work from home have been shown to be happier, have less time off sick and show increased productivity.

It’s not surprising the corporates are catching onto what the smaller companies have known for a while.

We’ve compiled this list as a starting guide to working from home and the opportunities that might be available to you.

Research tribe

Research tribe works with some of the biggest brand names in the world. You may not have heard of them, but you’ve probably heard of the people that employ them. Think Kiehls, Danone, Sky and Net-a-Porter, and you’ll get the idea.

This is not some get rich quick mystery shopping company, they’ve been around for years, and if you prove yourself to be a reliable worker, you’ll get work often.

They don’t make any promises about the amount of work you’ll get, so it’s a bonus when it comes in but you’ll get rewarded in cash, products, vouchers or experiences. They’re looking to build a loyal following, a team of people who they trust to carry out research.

While you’re not going to get rich, you might well take home an extra £50 per assignment. So register and wait for the assignments to land in your inbox. And once they do, either take them or turn them down if they’re not for you.

New vista live

New vista live is an online research company, another market research agency. They typically want your views and opinions on a range of things from shopping, advertising, technology and entertainment to politics, current affairs and global events.

They operate a points system, with surveys being allocated an amount of ‘points’ which you can then turn into cash when you hit £50. A usual survey will earn you £1. No, it’s not a lot but they do add up, and for sitting at your kitchen table having a rant about something you feel strongly about, it’s not bad.

New vista live also offer an opportunity to join live online groups where you can discuss topics and these are also paid in points. Joining up is easy and fast, it’s free and you’ll soon be able to take part in surveys that you’re eligible for.

Teamed with something like Research Tribe, you could have several pieces of work a week, netting you a handy £70-80 ish.

Code 3 research

Code 3 research will pay you for your views, opinions and feedback about products and services you already use in your day to day life.

There are many ways to complete assignments, you can go along to a local venue and take part in a session e.g. a Focus Group, User Test, Interview or accompanied shopping session or you can just take part from the comfort of your own home or office.

In return for your efforts Code 3 research will pay you between £40-100 for up to two hours….it’s good money, but you’re not likely to get huge amounts of work. It’s a great side as and when it come up, but as with the others, join up to lots of sites and hope for occasional work.
