With schools closing down and child care centers becoming less available, finding a way to earn some extra cash is more important than ever. Luckily, there is a way that you can make a bit of money from home without having to leave the comfort of your own couch.
The internet has made it possible for businesses to create virtual communities where customers can engage with brand ambassadors and each other. These are platforms that allow you to take quizzes and earn money in the process. The perfect opportunity for players looking to earn some extra cash is the online Quiz community called TrueExpectations.
Developed by Golden Beet Marketing, TrueExpectations is a legitimate business that was created to give people the opportunity to work remotely whilst earning extra cash. The concept is simple; answer questions correctly and you will earn money. In addition, you can make extra cash by referring friends who may also want to take part in the platform. You will not only be able to earn money, but you will also be able to discover a whole new audience that may have never given you the opportunity to speak. Since its inception in May 2020, TrueExpectations has already raised over $1 million in funding and has gained a following of over 300,000 users.
Get The Basics Right
When entering the quizzing world, it is essential to ensure that you do not waste your time with rubbish quizzes. Whilst there are many fun quizzes out there, you will need to avoid these if you want to make any money. The key is to ensure that you create quizzes that people want to take part in.
Start by gathering a group of friends and family to help you test the questions. Get the basics right – the more people you have taking the test the more reliable the results will be. Do not just use your mobile phone for the test either as there are so many apps that can be used to test on the go. Invest in a dedicated testing device or borrow one from a friend or family member.
Use Audio And Visual Effectively
Audio and visual effects can be used to great effect when creating a quiz. You should aim to incorporate elements of both into your design. A good example of a well-designed quiz is that of QuizUp. Developed by Team Q, QuizUp uses a range of colors, bold text and beautiful images to capture the attention of the reader. However, most importantly, the use of audio and visual effects means that the quiz cannot be accessed easily by people with visual impairments or who are on-the-go. In addition, because the quiz is completely digital, there is no risk of it being corrupted or lost.
To create a commercial-quality product, ensure that you work with a designer who is experienced in working with digital products.
Curate Content For A Specific Audience
As a general rule, the more niche the topic of your content the more targeted the audience. If you are really keen to make money from home, focus on creating content for a specific audience. For example, if you are passionate about music, curate content related to music – whether it be songs, albums or festivals. The more specific the better. For example, if you want to create content to attract travel bloggers, focus on curated content from travel bloggers who are also musicians. In addition, you can then showcase their music in your videos and earn an additional revenue stream from online advertising.
Make Money Quickly
Most importantly, you must ensure that you make money quickly. Whilst there is nothing worse than losing money, you do not want to be in the situation of having to wait for days or weeks to be paid. As a general rule, the more questions you can get right the quicker you will make money. This is why shorter quizzes are usually more profitable. TrueExpectations runs on a freemium model – users can take part for free, however, they will only be able to access the bare bones of the product. To unlock the features which allow you to earn more money, users will have to pay $5 per month or $50 per year. Whilst that may sound like a lot of money, you must keep in mind that you are making money off an audience which is already there – someone within your social network will probably already be a paying member. In addition, you are able to promote your product to this audience which may mean that you could generate a revenue of over $100 per month in some instances.
Pro-Tip: Use Your Favorite Social Network
If you are looking to promote your product online, use your favorite social network to do it. Not only will this attract potential customers, but it will also allow you to engage with your existing audience. In addition to using social media to promote your product, you should also use social media to interact with your audience. To begin with, you can use social media to follow, like and share content related to your product. Later on, you can engage with potential customers through your own content – whether that be videos, articles or podcasts.
