More Paid Surveys Completed

April 2nd, 2007

As we enter the second quarter of 2007, the paid surveys market seems to be picking up steam. This morning, two more paid surveys arrived in my email and I was able to successfully complete them both. Each of the surveys netted $5 and took 10-15 minutes to complete.

The first one was actually pretty interesting; they had us sample several different greeting card ideas and rate them according to how funny we thought they were, whether or not we would buy them, etc. We were able to see the front of all of the cards displayed on the screen as if we were actually shopping for them in a store. By clicking on one of the cards, we could get a closer view of it, open it, and read the message or “punch line” inside. Some of the cards were actually pretty funny while a few others tried to be funny, but did not seem to target my sense of humor very well.

The second survey was about small kitchen appliances such as toasters, coffee makers, juice makers, and the like. The survey company seemed to be trying to figure out what kinds of features people wanted the most in these kinds of appliances, and also what people disliked about the appliances that they currently owned. After completing this second survey, I also had the opportunity to take a $10 survey about television programming, but when I clicked through on the link, it said that they had already received too many responses from other people and that their quota for that survey had already been filled. This is unfortunate, but it is a fact of life that we sometimes have to accept when taking paid surveys; whenever a relatively high-paying survey comes along, the quota for it often fills up very quickly because people are eager to take the highest paying surveys first, and the companies that are sponsoring the surveys have a fixed amount of money that they are able to allocate for market research.

Fortunately, my membership at Survey Vanguard allows me to link up with so many different survey companies that it really does not affect me very much if I miss a survey opportunity or two because of a full quota (or because I was too slow, too tired, or whatever). I am able to receive so many paid survey opportunities that all I have to do is wait a few hours at most, and there will be more surveys waiting for me in my email inbox. And I still have not signed up for even one-third of the total number of companies in the Survey Vanguard database!
