Default Re: Paid Surveys

> Has anyone heard of getting paid to complete
> surveys online ? The site is at

Offline, I have been paid as much as $100 (plus dinner) to participate in a focus group. I did not have to pay anything for the privilege. That is the part that may be a scam. This site charges money in order for you to be eligible for focus groups and surveys, whereas the actual researchers just pay participants.

If you ask all of your friends if they've ever been in a focus group and who they did it for, you'll probably come up with someone who has done it. Then you call that company and register with them. Then once they have research that fits your demographics, they'll call you. And all without spending a dime.

The catch is that every study is looking for very specific demographics, such as parents of teenagers, IT managers, 40-50-year-old men with hair loss, etc. If you don't qualify, you don't qualify.
