Now if you’re anything like me, you’re multiplying how many tests you can complete in an hour and how much you’re going to make. But hold your horses! These opportunities are extremely popular! Statistically, there are fewer customers than testers, so don’t expect to be completing three tests every hour on the hour.
Here’s how to make the most of this work-at-home opportunity:
1. Sign up with as many website testing companies as possible.
2. Be sure that you’re taking advantage of practice and sample testing opportunities, as many companies will only allow you a couple of times to pass their test.
3. Always make sure to turn in your best possible work, as many companies rate their testers and those with higher scores tend to get more and better-paying gigs.
4. While you’re waiting for these companies to email you with test opportunities, be sure to add short tasks, focus groups, and digital earning tasks to your routine — this will ensure that you have a constant pipeline of work and income coming in.
And if you’re located outside of the U.S. — check out this post, it has a bunch of opportunities for global residents!
