How does Renee make money online?
Renee doesn’t really exist. She’s our avatar to represent a typical person participating in online research studies on a site called Respondent.
Respondent.io is a website that helps companies like Allstate and eBay perform market research studies. It does this by connecting such companies with verified “respondents” – like Renee – who apply to participate in the studies.
Respondents are paid for each study they complete, sometimes as much as $500. (Don’t get your hopes up – this is rare!)
The majority of the studies are performed online or via phone (i.e. remote), while some require you to meet with a researcher (i.e. in-person).
