Recently we have been working with Clic and Walk to run some ‘fact finding’ missions to find out how it is that you guys and gals go about earning money online. Here are the results from the first missions that was run
Have you already made money online (via the Internet, not mobile apps)?
For question 1, the results show that 140 of the 224 participants that gave their gender details were female, which is 62.5%, which means that 37.5% of the participants declaring their gender were male. Almost half of the total 229 participants (45%) declared that they had already made money online, claiming that this had been very often, while a further third of the total participants said they had made some money online in the past. This meant that a total of 77% of the participants (172 people) had made some money online.
If yes, write down IN CAPITAL LETTERS the names of the services / websites that you use. If no, write down N/A.
For question 2, the results show that there were a variety of websites that people had considered to be influential in their earning money online. Gumtree, eBay and Amazon were popular answers, and so were survey sites such as YouGov, Market Force, Panel Force, OnePoll, and Clic and Walk, as well as cashback sites such as Quidco and Topcashback, some were from betting websites such as Betway and 32Red, and finally legitimate working-from-home opportunities such as Leapforce and AQA. The results highlight that there was a wide age range of the participants, with many being in their twenties, thirties, forties or fifties.
Take a picture of your favourite website / online service for making money and write down its name. If you have never made money online, take a picture of a website about making money online, and tell us why you have never tried making money online.
For question 3, the results show that some of the reasons that participants cited for not using online sites to make money from, were: they were unsure who or which websites could be trusted, earning money online is too much hassle, you cannot really earn a legitimate income from online activities, they were concerned about being scammed, or they were too busy with their own lives to pay attention to websites offering work-from-home opportunities.
In general, what do you think about making money online?
For question 4, the results show that almost half of all participants admitted that while they thought earning money online was a worthwhile activity, one must be careful about what schemes or ideas they became involved in, as some were not very lucrative or a complete waste of time. 30% of participants declared that it is very difficult to earn money online, while 21% of participants found it to be a very reliable and beneficial source of income.
Do you know the website “The Money Shed?” If yes, tell us what you think about it. If not, don’t hesitate to check it out next week to see the answers of other ClicWalkers and the results and stats of this mission 😉
For question 5, the results show that not everyone was familiar with the website The Money Shed. Of those that are aware of it, everyone commented on what a helpful and informative website it was, with an active forum full of tips for earning an income from online methods. Of the majority of the participants that had never heard of the website, most seemed excited about checking it out.
