Make Money Online Market Research Surveys

Reaping the Potential

A recent estimation by the US Census Bureau forecasts that the South African population will stand at nearly 49 million by the end of 2012 with an average Gross National Income per capita of 53,298ZAR (6,100 USD). Included in the Goldman Sach -defined BRICS family of leading global growth markets alongside Brazil, Russia, India and China, South Africa is viewed as one of the major emerging worldwide economies with a huge potential in mineral wealth and a population of confident consumers ready to embrace new products and services as they become increasingly available.

A study released in May 2012 by World Wide Worx indicated that internet usage had risen 25% in the past 12 months from 6.8 million in 2010 to 8.5 million by the close of 2011. That number is forecast to reach 10 million by the end of 2012. As commented by Howzit MSM Executive Producer, Justin Zemke, this will have "huge implications for media and social networks". Many leading international Market Research professionals have also seen the potential in utilizing the input from this invaluable source of consumers and decision makers and are offering earning opportunities to those individuals who would like to share their opinions to help shape the products and services on offer in the future.
