Job will pay shoppers £70 a day to buy goods from online adverts

Five people will be paid £70 a day to purchase items advertised on social media in a dream job for online shoppers.

The “Social Spenders” will be hired to help track which social media platforms best deliver ads to target audiences and drive sales traffic.

Venture funding firm Outfund will use the data collected to expand its knowledge of social advertising and share with the startups it funds.

Successful candidates will be employed initially for one month and paid a daily rate of £70 (part-time hours) with up to £1,500 spending money for all advert purchases.

They will be allowed to keep all items they purchase over the employment period.

The advert states applicants must be over the age of 18 and be fluent in English. They must also have good writing and literacy skills and have active social media accounts across various platforms including Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, Youtube and Snapchat.

The company is looking to hire applicants of varying age groups, to ensure results are comprehensive.

The company has stressed that applicants must only buy items they see via adverts on their social media, and to ensure this, candidates must document and prove each purchase made via videos and images, as well as their written report.

The role requires “Social Spenders” to spend at least 30 minutes on each social media platform a day, five days a week, to ensure each platform is being monitored fairly.

Outfund founder Daniel Lipinski said: “At Outfund our goal is to help businesses grow as quickly as possible by funding smart marketing and advertising options.

“We know from the companies we already fund that social media adverts can yield quick, easy-to-track results, but we wanted to help them with more than just the money for their adverts and show them where they can get the best return.

“With Social Spenders we’re hoping to be able to share invaluable insight into consumer spending habits and how advertising really impacts shopper choices in 2020.

“We’re looking for candidates on a one-month freelance contract basis to help with our initial research, but depending how things go it might be something we end up looking into regularly.”

Applicants can apply for the role here, before the closing date of August 17.
