Paid Market Research Study - Take Surveys for Money

Take a paid market research study or market research survey locally, in your town to earn stay at home mom income. Learn how to take surveys for money and get signed up for paid research studies.

Take Surveys for Money

As amazing as it sounds, there are real places where you can take surveys for money.

Paid research studies are not a scam, but you're not going to make it rich, either. This option is a great way to earn some pocket change; maybe enough for a lunch with the kids or entrance fees to a local museum.

Many larger cities across the United States (and increasingly smaller cities as well) have market research firms that conduct paid research studies. You can take a paid market research study by going to their facility.

Many of these facilities are in strip malls and shopping malls across the country.

Once, I even did one in Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. (I was pregnant and everyone else wanted to go on a fast ride; I did the survey while they waited in the line.)

You've probably walked through the mall and seen those people walking around with clipboards approaching shoppers and asking for a moment of their time. You may have even been approached yourself.

Most people do not want to be bothered to stick around and hear the punch line. But those that are interested enough to stick around often find out that they can take surveys for money, and may qualify for a paid market research study.

Now, I should mention here, that not all market research firms in shopping malls pay cash. Some want you to donate your time. But many will pay for the market research survey.

Though you can take surveys for money, don't expect a whole lot of money. I've seen a paid market research study as low as $4 and paid research studies as high as $20, with most around the $9 range. But for 15-20 minutes of your time; not bad.

If your kids are still babies or toddler, it's usually not a problem to take them into the survey room with you. I've done this several times. Another tactic I've used is to go to the mall with another mom friend, and while one of us is taking the survey, the other is watching all the kids, then we switch.

Another fun reason to do a paid market research study: you often get to try brand new products before they are put onto the market. I've tested the following types of products:
  • FeBreeze
  • Electric Toothbrushes
  • Soda
  • Orange Juice
  • String Cheese
  • Breakfast Bars
  • Movie Trailers
  • Pudding
  • Body Wash
  • Perfume
  • Toys
  • Fast Food

    Taste Tests

    Some locations also offer taste tests. This is where you get to try a new (or current) product from a restaurant or company, and answer questions about how you liked it.

    I've done several fun taste tests over the years, for fast food restaurants, places like Olive Garden, and several beer and wine taste tests. They're fun!

    We have a local firm here that does Burger King taste tests. They pay $20 for about a half-hour's worth of time, and participants can do a taste tests once every 6 weeks.

    The really nice thing is they offer taste tests for the kids! They have special studies for kids 6-12 and they pay them the full $20. My daughter decided to save all her allowance and taste test money for four months and was able to buy herself an American Girl doll. The Burger King tests were her first part time job, at age 6.

    Taste tests are done in a market research firm location, not at a restaurant. (Though once I did one at Sea World, and they gave me free admission to the park in addition to $20.)

    Find taste test kitchens near you.

    Networking at a Paid Market Research Study

    I've done paid research studies in three different states in several cities. I can tell you that the best way to learn about firms in your area is not through an internet search. It's through word-of-mouth.

    Some firms are located in out-of-the-way locations. Some do no advertising. Some have no website or internet presence. Networking with other participants is the single best way to learn about them.

    Participants at a market research survey are the best tools you have in finding great surveys. Share your finds (like this website!) and have them tell you theirs. It's a great way to get the scoop on your town.
