In my quest to find more ways to make money from home, I am happy to share with you another side hustle for us stay at home moms. Product Testing. Yes, you can get paid for product testing and almost always be able to keep the product. Read below for how product testing can be a profitable side hustle for stay at home moms and just about anyone.
Like I mentioned in my 5 Super Easy Side Hustles for Stay at Home Moms to Make Money series [entire series is in my sidebar on the front page of my blog on the right], be sure to set up a new email address. Doing so will allow you to just skim through it throughout the day. Checking often will allow you to be able to promptly jump on a product testing opportunity. Another sidetip is these product testing invitations fill up quick. So, you will want to check your email more times than normal. Also, remember that if a product test is looking for you to try a new coffee maker that is presently on the market, and you drink tea, you will most likely not be chosen. This is why the testing companies will send out a survey beforehand to make sure you are the right fit.
How Product Testing Can Be a Profitable Side Hustle for Stay at Home Moms
Not only will you receive compensation for your time and feedback on the product, but many times you will be able to keep the product too. For instance, when my son was potty training years ago, I never had to purchase potty training pull ons at all. I remember I was sent about 10 weeks worth of trainers and I received payment for my feedback as well.
Over the years, I tested everything from toiletries to appliances. The only time I had to return the item was an iPhone that I was sent to record videos of myself using the product. Oh and make sure you return the item to the company when it is due. Being prompt and detailed in your reports will render you many more testing opportunities.
Also, on my list below, you will find product testing companies as well as survey companies. I find the best payment opportunities comes from the survey companies that are recruiting survey takers for a testing opportunity. So, my advice to you is to sign up for every single one of these companies.
