Everyone with a computer and internet access performs some type on research on a daily basis. Some people however are really good at locating thing on the internet that others have a difficult time finding. If you are particularly good at internet research then there’s no reason you can’t make a career out of it and you can do so from the comfort of your own home. People are willing to pay internet researchers who can separate the good information available from the bad and provide an efficient service. Here are two ways you can be paid to work as a researcher on the internet.
1.) Elance.com- If you don’t want to take on the difficult task of finding clients who need your services, Elance is about as great a site as there is. The site is set up so that you are bidding on jobs being offered by the client. A job is posted along with the skills and other requirements desired to complete the work. As a working member of the site, you submit proposals for jobs you wish to take on. You explain your qualifications to the client but most of all, you explain to them how you plan to complete the work. The job only goes to one person and there can be dozens of people clamoring for the work. Make a smart proposal and once you get a few satisfied customers, it isn’t oo difficult to continue to get work on the site.
2.) Start your own Internet Research Buisness- The great thing about starting a business like internet research is that you can start it at little cost to you and in your spare time. Indeed, it is up to you how quickly you’d like to grow your business. This option is great if you’ve already got research experience as potential clients may be skeptical if you don’t have related work experience. When you begin to receive requests from clients, make sure to pay attention to each detail of their request. A poorly done job will not net you future projects.
