Get Shoppers Working For You

Need someone to do your (not so) dirty work? Here’s a novel way to get local shoppers working for you when you need them.

If you have a need for some in-house market research or demographic surveying, Field Agent might just be the app for you. It’s only available in the US iTunes store for now, but this seems like an app with growth potential. You can sign up with the service, and post a task. Field Agent users in your area can open the app and see the listings in their area, and the payment that’s on offer (payments range between $3 and $8 depending on the task). Agents are ranked for reliability, so you know the person you’re paying will be responding accurately and honestly.

It’s the latest in a series of attempts to crowdsource the mobile market, and it might be a workable one. More Agents are signing up daily, with clients lagging behind, so if you have a quick job that could use the input of the crowd, Field Agent is looking for you. The company is looking to expand the capabilities of the app, so if you have an idea for a task it doesn’t support, let them know.
