Paid market research can be a great way to earn extra part-time income (whether you are a stay at home mum or a full-time worker) and if you live in Brisbane then you chances of getting a job is as good as any.
When it comes to market research, there are a couple of different opportunities that seem to get lumped under the ‘paid market research’ but are really quite different. So what I want to do is take a look at each one, and how easy it will be to do if you live in Brisbane.
Brisbane Paid Market Research Options
Market Research Groups
There are a few companies that are looking for people to come in to a central location for a personal market research opportunity. This is usually to try new products, or for something that requires a physical element.
These opportunities are usually few and far between as the majority of these companies have turned their market research online. So while there is the potential to get a job like this in Brisbane – it is getting harder.
Secret Shopper Jobs
The most of local type research jobs are now to do with secret shopping, and being a mystery shopper in Brisbane is quite easy. There are a lot of different mystery shopping companies and a quick Google search will give you a great place to start.
Paid Online Surveys
As I said above, the majority of paid market research jobs (not just in Brisbane, but Australia-wide) are turning online. The reason for this is that it is cheaper for the companies, and a lot easier for us – as we can do it in the comfort of our own homes.
If you are looking at getting started in surveys and looking for some legitimate survey companies, then have a look at the ones I recommend below:
