Are you someone with a lot of opinions about a lot of things? How about getting paid just for voicing your opinions out loud? Is that something that appeals to you? If it is, then you should consider taking part in research studies and getting paid for it.

Whether in the pursuit of a better product, service, solution, cure, or way of thinking, every day, numerous research studies are carried out across the world by corporations, government agencies, academic institutions, various organizations, and even private individuals.  

Now, depending on the goal of the research and the research method being used, some of these research studies require respondents or participants, and researchers are often willing to pay the right people who are drawn from the right crowd to take part.

Again, not all research studies need respondents or participants, and even for those that do, not all pay their respondents or participants. But there are quite a few that do compensate their participants for their time and effort, and if you happen to join these kinds of paid research studies, they can be a great way to make good money on the side.



In fact, here are some of the best places online where you can join paid surveys, focus group discussions, product testing, and other research studies, and earn a nice bit of money in the process.

  • Respondent – Leverage your professional expertise for paid research interviews and earn $100, $300, or even upwards of $500 per hour.
  • User Interviews – Join focus groups, one-on-one interviews, multi-day studies, etc. and make $50 to $100 per hour.
  • American Consumer Opinion – Share your opinion with an array of Fortune 500 companies and earn up to $50 survey/research project.
  • Probe Market Research – Participate in focus groups by phone, online, or in-person and get the opportunity to earn up to $400 per study.
  • Focus Group by Schlesinger – Earn anywhere from $75 to $200 for sharing your opinions and views on the world’s leading brands.
  • Survey Feeds – Be a part of paid research opportunities and earn anywhere from $50 to $500 per study.



Note that with the aforementioned websites, the pay varies. You might make $100 a day, or maybe you might not. It all depends on the availability of research studies, the nature of the research study, your eligibility to take part, and even the platform you joined. After all, the paid research projects being offered aren’t all for you: most research studies screen their respondents, and if you don’t fit their criteria (education, employment, skills, interests, lifestyle, citizenship, place of residence, to name a few), just find a paid research project that actually fits your profile.

By the way, you can also participate in studies and research projects conducted by universities and colleges, and yes, they do pay you for your time and effort as well. If you’re interested, check out the following and see where and what you can join:

Felicitations, fellow malefactors!

What’s cookin’, good lookin’?

Hi there!

I’m Jared dela Cruz, founding father daddy of phmillennia & five-time winner of Witch Weekly‘s Most Charming Smile Award. I’m a wizard. I used to study at Hogwarts, but I dropped out. Actually, I was expelled. Got accused of practicing the tickling charm on Thaddeus Thurkell’s seven squib sons & running an underground market of dangerous potions. Only one of those was true.

So now I’m a writer. Or at least I think I am.

But hey, thank you for being here. For supporting my work. For supporting me. You are noble. You are kind. You are beautiful. And you – why, you are my beacon of light, love, & laughter! You make me feel … beloved. And I hope, one day, I can show you how much you mean to me. If you have money, won’t you give me some, too?
