How Do I Pick A Company To Test Free Samples For?

Upon scouring the net for potential leads, sorting through all the product testing jobs available at the time may seem a little overwhelming. Many factors should go into deciding upon a product testing site to work for; the products available, the amount of work available on a monthly basis and the ease of use. "Ease of use?" I hear you saying, "But I'm just playing with free stuff, that's as easy as it gets!". Here's the thing. After trying out a new product, you may be required to write several paragraphs on your experience with said product, or you may simply only need to fill out a short questionnaire, it really depends on the company you choose to test for.

Everybody's experience varies in terms of how much time they have to invest in product testing and which products they are interested in so there is really no one-size-fits-all product testing position. Fortunately, the abundance of opportunities to choose from ensures anybody can find a product testing position that interests them.

- Once you find a position that suites your appetite, do some research on the company offering the position. In the same search engine, search for company reviews or type the company name followed by the word "scam" and hit enter. This is sure to bring up any potential negative feedback against the company.

- Never pay for work. Remember, we want to test free products. If a company asks you for money, no matter what their excuse, always move on to the next one. Luckily, this doesn't usually happen as the world of product testing is generally a safe one.

- Join as many product testing sites as you'd like! Nobody ever said you have to work for just one. The more sites you join, the more free stuff you get.
