The Research Tribe is an email-based ‘mystery shopping’/online rewards portal.

That is, rather than provide their own offers, they will link you to other online rewards companies.

The Research Tribe claim that this aggregate approach allows them to ‘negotiate better rewards’ for you.

As far as I can tell, the Research Tribe is not a scam.

However, even though the opportunities that they offer appear to be legitimate.

You’re not going to be able to make a full-time income by completing the associated tasks.

Research Tribe is best suited to those who want to be kept up to date with the latest online rewards opportunities.

And earn some extra pocket money on the side.

  • Low long-term earning potential.
  • Not a ‘real’ online job.

Welcome to my Research Tribe review. 🙂

Finding a legitimate work from home job opportunity is tough.

At least, that’s been the case in my experience.

Because even when you factor out the somewhat more obvious scams like envelope stuffing and assembly jobs.

It’s still quite easy to end up getting sucked into multi-level marketing (MLM) schemes.

Or working for pennies on the hour doing data entry jobs.

Even if I’ve gone through a ‘legit’ job search engine like Indeed, or trawled through a job board like e4s.

And that’s exactly how I ended up signing up to the UK-based Research Tribe company.

So, is Research Tribe a legit work from home opportunity?

Or just another let-down?

Well, after a short while of testing their services.

Here’s what I discovered.

What is Research Tribe?

The Research Tribe is an online rewards portal.

That is, when you sign up, you’ll be periodically sent emails that direct you to other online rewards sites.

For example, I had one that linked through to the 20 Cogs website.

Where I was able to register with various merchant websites for cash rewards.

How Does Research Tribe Work?

You’re basically joining an email list.

As opposed to registering for a standalone ‘rewards’ website that pays you directly.

So, technically, you could skip joining the Research Tribe.

And just go directly to the rewards websites themselves.

However, if you go through the Research Tribe, they claim to be able to:

‘…negotiate better rewards and get you some exclusive research opportunities you won’t find anywhere else’.

I didn’t sign up to all of their offers.

So, I can’t verify if this is actually the case.

(Let me know in the comments section if you got a better deal by going through the Research Tribe’s portal).

Is Research Tribe a Scam?

Not as far as I can tell.

I’ve not received any spam emails since joining their list.

Nor have I been bombarded with junk offers.

In fact, I’ve only received a handful of research opportunities since joining.

And I’ve certainly not been asked to join any MLM programmes or buy anything.

The Research Tribe is a registered company – trading as Well Branded Ltd.

Is Research Tribe a Legit Work from Home Opportunity?

The Research Tribe do appear to offer legitimate opportunities.

And you can make money with their associated online rewards platforms like 20 Cogs.

But can you earn a full-time income from home doing this?

Almost certainly not.

And to be fair, the Research Tribe do state that their goal is to simply ‘boost your income’ each month on their website.

Even if the ‘job search’ advert that you clicked on did lead you to believe otherwise.

My General Thoughts on Rewards Platforms

I’ve been involved in making money online since 2007.

And whilst legitimate ‘mystery shopping’ opportunities are certainly preferable to the plethora of scams that I’ve come across.

Completing online tasks isn’t the most lucrative strategy that I’ve used.

Far from it.

What Are the Alternatives to Rewards Platforms?

For me?

Matched betting and affiliate marketing are my biggest online earners by far.

Matched betting works by cashing out the bookmakers’ free bets for a profit without gambling.

Matched betting is my main source of active income.

Because it has the best relative hourly rate that I’m aware of.

For example, I recently generated more than £2,000 in a month with matched betting.

And that’s after having scooped up around £1,000 right off the bat from the bookmakers’ initial ‘sign-up’ offers.

Affiliate marketing is my passive income source.

By that, I mean I’m able to create content around the services and products of other companies.

And get paid recurring commissions whilst I work on other projects.

For example, in 2017 I set up a ‘niche’ website that reviewed betting systems.

And after the initial work was done.

That site earned me more than $10,000 (about £8,000) on ‘auto-pilot’ by promoting just a few products:

Not a huge sum.

But the point is that just about anyone can do the same.

Even if you’re a TOTAL BEGINNER.

If given the right instruction and guidance.

Speaking of which…
