How to Become an Online Internet Researcher

Online internet researching has become a profitable business to some and a great source of income to others. It’s a job opportunity that you can weave around your schedule without quitting on your regular job.

To some, it’s a full time career. If these ideas interest you than this business article will definitely set you on track.

Reflecting and carefully planning

In striving to become excellent on any craft, a person should give his commitment, build on his work ethic and expand his knowledge. Because of these, it is best to plan out first on what you intend to do and deliver. Carefully planning is better than blind charging. Plan out what you want to do while reflecting on what you can offer other people.

Search the web for online research projects

Get informed on how internet researches are done. Ask friends who have done it before or maybe read on comments about it posted by others. Once you’re confident on how it works, search the web for sites that do offer such projects. Try browse through the website "craigslist". This website can help you get started with some projects.

Start with job orders you are familiar with

There are many job offers to pick from. Research is a broad topic. There are numerous job opportunities to start on and build on. My advice is you start on a research job order that you are familiar with. Again reflect on your own experiences and interests. Identify areas where you have strong foundation on. It could be health related maybe business. It could be a number and combination of things. Accept job orders you are familiar with. Build your confidence slowly. And before you know it you’ll be taking on bigger research topics.

Be professional about your work

There is one rule in doing research topics online. This is to be original with your work. Sure you can get ideas here and there but make sure what you write is solely you. Be original with your work and don’t copy the work of others.

Develop a time table to complete your work

It will help you a lot if you develop a time table to finish your work. Many online internet researchers are working on a part time basis. If you have other outside interests, it is best to schedule your other activities around your research job order. Learn to work in blocks of uninterrupted time. If you do this, you’ll be able to do both without wasting time.

Set up a PayPal account

Open a PayPal account. Setting up a PayPal account will help you with payment transactions. If you are unfamiliar with PayPal, then visit

Take on only what you can handle

Being a professional also means submitting job orders on agreed time. Make sure you deliver the goods on time. Knowing this, take only job orders you can handle. Don’t take several research projects which you can’t finish. You will not only loose clients but the quality of your work will decrease.

Advertise your services

Once you are confident with what you do and you have enough experience, post your services on the internet. Develop a website where people can visit you virtually. If your operation grows, you might want to hire freelance writers to help you.

  • James expert adviser said on March 26, 2012

    @kksr, this service is required by all top class researchers who need to produce a report/analysis. People such as post doc, scientists need help on a topic. They outsource to get it done quickly and cheaply. Do you know where to find such jobs or you need some help on that?

    I'm a design researcher and through my 7 years of experience I collected a huge database of hotels, resorts & restaurants from around the world. I also have a database for interior, MEP, architects, Civil, Urban designers... with description and area of expertise, budget, mid-scale, upscale or luxury. My latest project is a presentation and a research for a design lounge in Horeca Lebanon 2014. This is my first freelance job in Lebanon and it was a mistake that I didn't discuss the fees before starting the project but now I want to know how much a professional researcher in Lebanon get paid per day, and usually my projects are never less than 20 days. Please advise. Thank you
