In November 2016, Flavien set off on the Roamler adventure! He’s been performing tasks on a regular basis since, paid and creative ones (and he’s pretty good at this, as you can see in his picture) 😉
We’re sure you’re all curious to hear more about him, so let’s start with the interview!
What is your reason for performing Roamler tasks?
The main reason is that I need to earn money.
How do you perform tasks? How do you organise yourself?
Where I live, there’s a tram line which goes across the city, the main shops are located along this line. I usually follow the tram route in order to be the most productive.
The next day, if there are still available tasks which are not located on the tram line, I perform those as well. That way, I sometimes perform up to 18 tasks a day.
Could you describe a typical day on which you plan to perform Roamler tasks?
I’m a night owl, so I usually take a look in the app early in the morning, around 4:00. I take another look at around 10:00 and compare with other money making apps in order to choose the right locations and the right time to perform as many tasks as I can.
I usually take a break by around 14:00 and then go back to perform other tasks (I keep on following the tram line or go to other locations).
Around 17:00-18:00, I go back home (sometimes the battery level on my phone becomes an issue). Then around 19:00-20:00, once my partner is back home, I sometimes complete a few last tasks for the day.
What tasks do you like best and why?
I prefer mystery visits in stores. I feel at ease, and by now I know the shelve layouts by heart.
I think it’s interesting to guess what the client needs by reading the questionnaire. Some of the questions are quite accurate and allow me to understand the situation of a product or a store. Plus, mystery visits are a good way to learn more about what we buy and to pay more attention to this.
What’s the secret of your success on Roamler?
- Choosing the best route to be as productive as possible.
- Always take a lot of pictures! And don’t forget to leave a comment, this really can make a difference.
- Be yourself, act like a normal shopper. I often buy something I need in order to look like a customer. That way, it’s easier to perform a task discreetly.
One last word?
Thanks Roamler for helping me to earn some extra money, especially when I go through a complicated period 🙂
