Ways to Make Quick Cash: Get paid for your opinion

Posted: Updated:

Being "opinionated" isn't always a bad thing. It can actually help you earn some fast money. Companies want to hear your opinion and they're willing to pay quick cash for it.

If you like to test out products or review them, you can participate in a consumer test group to earn some money.

For example, one local company, Plaza Research in UTC, runs a website where you can register to join a panel, and become eligible to participate in focus group discussions, telephone interviews, and online surveys. The company's website says "sign up, speak your mind, and get paid." You can earn $50 or $100 dollars for your thoughts and your time.  

You can also check out the company's Facebook page where they often recruit for focus groups. The company is national, so pay attention to the locations being advertised. Sometimes they want local participants, but other times, you can do a national phone interview for cash.

Not all research companies are equal, and each has its own rules and policies about how often you are allowed to participate in a focus group, so read the fine print and ask questions before you sign up.
