  • Stephanie's Top Five Survey Panels (July 2012)

    By Stephanie on November 19, 2012

    July was another slow month for me, but mainly because I had a very busy month and was on vacation for part of it. I still managed to work on some surveys during my vacation, though, as I brought my laptop along. I still received a lot of surveys from Global Test Market and Valued Opinions. The other survey panels were a bit slow for me, however. ...

  • Stephanie's Top Five Survey Panels (June 2012)

    June was yet another slow month for me with my regular survey panels. Summer tends to be slower than other seasons for me, though. I normally get less surveys in the summer and have less time to devote to survey-taking because of vacations and family activities, so that explains the slowness. Global Test Market and Valued Opinions are still my top ...

    May was an even slower month for me than April with my regular survey panels. Although Global Test Market and Valued Opinions are still performing strongly for me, the other panels I’m a member of have not been sending me as many surveys that I qualify for. I’ve also not gotten invited to any Invoke focus groups or taken part in any other ...

    April was another slow month for me with my regular survey panels. Global Test Market performed the best for me and is continuing to provide me with a steady stream of surveys each week. Valued Opinions has also been working well for me, although they take forever to credit survey cash to the account. SurveyHead, MySurvey, and Ipsos i-Say also ...

  • Hannah's Top Five Survey Panels (March 2012)

    By Hannah on April 10, 2012

    In March, I paid a bit more attention to my survey panels than I had been. I also narrowed things down a bit. There are several panels that are paying me less than a dollar for half an hour’s work. That is definitely NOT worth it to me, so I’ve been getting those up to a cash-out level, cashing out, and then closing the account. That will make it ...

    March was a rather slow month for me. I didn’t earn nearly as much as February, but that’s mostly due to the fact that I didn’t take part in any major online focus groups or discussions. Some months are just slower than others and this was one of them. I did about average with most survey panels this month. My top earners were SurveyHead, Global ...

  • Stephanie’s Top Ten Survey Panels – August 2011

    By Stephanie on September 15, 2011

    August was a little better than July for me for survey-taking, although not by very much. Survey-taking has still been very slow for me as invites aren’t as plentiful and qualifying is more difficult than usual. I’m still in a bit of a survey rut, but I hope that changes in the next couple of months.Toluna did not do as well for me as last month. ...
