Did you know that you could get paid for completing specific simple tasks right now? There are ways you can make money now from the comfort of your own home.

Companies are paying right now for people like you to make money from the comfort of your home with zero cost to you! This could benefit many people: students, housewives, retirees, and anyone that could benefit from low-commitment passive income!

You could be one of the many growing people taking advantage of this. However, there are differences between this and surveys, albeit similar in concept.


So, How Does it Work Exactly?

Well, the manufacturers of products benefit from giving out trials. This confirms how viable a product really is before it begins the process of entering markets. This could save time or money, giving companies the ability to alter or abandon products based on the results.

They provide you with the product at no cost to your for their limited trial period. They wish for you to be the start of a loyal customer base as one of the first people to try the product. The affiliate company you will be in contact with will receive a bit of commission for the product, which is what incentivizes them to provide you with your trial period.

You get the product to test it, and they pay you. But how much will they pay you? Well, that is on a person to person basis decided by the individual contract. Some have said that websites will even pay more than initially negotiated by the contract, so the deal doesn't seem too bad. Plus, money is money!

The next step is pretty simple, you just enjoy your free product!

You test out the product, which is provided free of cost, and report your experience with it to the company affiliate. Even if you do not enjoy the time you spend with the product, you can inform the affiliate and still get paid in full for your trial!

Worst case scenario, you got to try a new product for absolutely free. I would say that the only thing you waste is your time... but could you even say that considering you get paid? Its a total win-win.

If you have any questions regarding payment, how regularly you get paid, or the method of payment, then just review your contract and have all that information provided to you beforehand!

At the most your affiliate website may require a small initial fee to sign up, but that is not a guaranteed occurrence. One benefit is you will never be forced to try a product that you do not wish to try, it is completely up to you. You choose what you wish to try and ignore what you don't.


Might This Be For Me?

This is a great way to work online from home for easy simple cash income. For someone who needs freelance work, this is low commitment and can be done from anywhere.

This makes it easily accessible for anyone who wishes to consider it. It is especially beneficial for anyone home bound or who desires to work from home. Students, housewives, retirees, all could benefit for low commitment income.

For students especially, it provides a low time commitment form of cash flow. This is beneficial as it will definitely not interfere with any class, extracurriculars, or the very important and enjoyable social activities!

However, if you already have a job could you still benefit from this? Of course! This provides a source of passive income, creating extra cash flow you can be receiving in addition to your already established job. Anyone could benefit from extra cash couldn't they? The low commitment, easy, cost-free format of this could be perfect for anyone to benefit from as a second job.

Another huge benefit is the fact it is work as you personally need. So if you are not in need of extra cash, you can just not worry about it. If you do need extra cash, you can commit fully to this to make as much money as you need. It can be as beneficial to you as you want it to be, meaning it could work for anyone based on what they may want.


So What Is The Difference Between This and Surveys?

Well, they are very similar in many aspects. They are both capable of being done from the comfort of your own home and provide a source of income. They are easy and relatively reliable forms of cash flow. They can both act as useful passive income.

The differences come in the details of the how, though. For a survey, you get cash back or gift cards in exchange for your input to the online surveys.

However for this, you receive test products before they go to the market as described before. This makes this much more geared toward consumers. You get the added benefit of trying new products for free, which gives this a leg up. Free trial periods for products and extra cash flow gives these trial products a edge over getting paid for surveys.

This may also take up less time than a survey. With a survey, you must sit down and commit full attention to filling it out. This tends to only pay you as you do it. With product testing, you just use the item passively, then when your trial period is over just respond. This has you making some money without having to sit at the computer the whole time to do it.

Give it a Shot!

If you feel this is for you, you can go start now! Just look up some affiliate companies and do a little research. You can search until you find the write one for you, then you are good to go! You can start making money now, and hey, you may even be able to find some cool products too. So get out there and get to testing! It is money in your pocket.
