Why work a full-time job and fill out online surveys on the side?
More people are making a living online than ever before. Entrepreneurs are starting websites and business ventures, merchants are taking their products to the Web and working remotely continues to trend upward, according to Fortune magazine.
In fact, the source claimed that remote job postings increased by 26 percent in 2014 and roughly 83 percent of hiring administrators claim telecommuting will become even more popular in the years to come.
Still, that doesn't mean working exclusively online is a job fit for everyone. If you really want the most bang for your buck, it might be a good idea to make money online from home and juggle a different job. Here's why.
It's all about the money
Paid surveys are a great way to earn a little extra money. From buying groceries to paying a portion of the bills to finding extra cash for fun activities, online surveys are good for making money quickly and easily, but it probably won't pay all the bills. You may earn a few hundred dollars every month if you complete surveys regularly, and you might even win big in a quarterly $10,000 prize draw, but that cash doesn't always cover the full costs of your living expenses. In the long run, it pays to stay safe by using online surveys to supplement your income.
Pump up your savings
After you've realized that paid surveys can't quite pay all the bills, you can start focusing on what those funds could be used for. Perhaps the most responsible answer is to pump up your savings. Use your full-time job to pay for the essentials and put away the money from your online ventures for later.
According to a 2014 Wells Fargo survey, over half of millennials reported that they are currently living paycheck to paycheck and are unable to put any money away for retirement. Don't become part of that trend. Take your future into your own hands and do a little bit of online work in your free time. You might be surprised by how much you can put away in just a few short weeks.
It's the most convenient side job around
Whether you want to get pay off debt faster, earn more spending money or save up for a big purchase, you've probably mulled over getting another part-time job. Why go through the hassle of sending out resumes, interviewing and juggling another strict work schedule when there's another job waiting a few clicks away?
Online surveys are easy to sign up for, reliable and incredibly flexible. You'll never be pressured into a particular routine because all the survey requests you receive are optional. That means you can work when you and how you want. What's more, you can fit surveys into nearly any part of your day. Answer a few questions past midnight, do a questionnaire while you wait in the doctor's office - you're free to make money nearly anywhere with a Web connection. Use that to give every free moment a little earning potential.
