You really can get paid to take online surveys. Brands pay a lot of money for market research and value the opinions of members of the public. If you have a few spare hours, sign up for a survey site and get started taking surveys on topics from the environment to your spending habits.
Sounds like a dream job, right? Beta testers for apps and mobile games are in high demand, with hourly jobs paying an average of $10-15 per hour, and full-time games testers making an average of $50,000.
User testing websites give real people the chance to give feedback on your new products, software, and services. Although full-time user testing roles are few and far between, one-off projects will pay between $10 and $120 depending on the level of detail and time each participant will spend.
