AskWonder offers “Expert Q&A” services. It was founded in 2012 and has a flexible workforce doing desktop research and simpler data collection gigs on demand. When clients ask a question on, it activates its network of researchers (typically students or flexible gig workers) who do web searches and compile a comprehensive answer based on publicly available sources. The replies are stored for future use. Some are made publicly available, unless the client opts to keep them private.

Over the years, the company has had hundreds of gig researchers and clients. Although online reviews from employed researchers are mixed, the users that we’ve spoken to are mostly positive to the service.

AskWonder shares extensive detail on its business model in this public welcome document.
