October 2009 Survey Total

October 31st, 2009 at 11:27 am

Recap for the newbies: I am a family practice doctor and I have the opportunity to do a lot of medical surveys and market research programs, mostly online but occasionally in person (focus groups and such). Each month, I post the total I've earned from surveys for that month.

As I've posted in recent months, I tend to get in slumps where I pass up a lot of the survey opportunities that come my way. A couple of months ago, I got back on track and focused on doing as many of them as I could. That turned out well with my income turning around from $171 in August to $428 in September. I figure if I can consistently bring in $400 or more, that's an extra $5,000 a year in income, enough to pay for a couple of weeks vacation for my family.

Well, October turned out to be a gold mine for me. I received payments for 17 surveys plus got to do 2 in-person programs. I collected a grand total of almost a grand - $986.00! Of course, I am quite happy with that. If that doesn't motivate me to keep doing the surveys, I don't know what will.

    Amazing! What a good idea to earn extra $$. I wish the surveys I took were worth more... I'm lucky to get $2.

    It occurred to me that I forgot about my half.com sales of $27.48 for the month. That was from 2 books that I got from doing surveys and then sold so that really adds to that total, putting me over $1,000 for the month.
