Why is my opinion valuable?
Every company that you interact with and buy (or don't buy) their products or services
wants to know what they can do to improve. Whether it is launching a new product

SurveyClub we know that you, the consumer, control what products you buy, and we
help you find companies that want to listen and pay for your insight! With more
companies spending more online every day, completing paid surveys online helps you

What is SurveyClub?
SurveyClub is a place for people to share their opinions and interact with other
likeminded people. Our members participate in private market research studies for
the largest companies in the world. Our goal is to give our members the ability
to earn cash and prizes for sharing their opinions online, over the phone, or in
Below is an overview of the market research industry and an explanation of the part
you will play by becoming a SurveyClub member.
We begin with a definition of market research and then give a brief explanation
of the difference between qualitative and quantitative research. This is all important
because it will help you understand the different opportunities you will have by
becoming a SurveyClub member.
What is Market Research?
Market Research is the collection and analysis of data about a certain topic, product,
market, or the competitive landscape of any of the above. Market research can also
be split into two sub categories, primary and secondary. Primary research is when
the data is collected directly by the researcher from the respondent. For example,
an individual asking people questions in a mall. Secondary research is syndicated
from multiple sources or multiple panels of members (this is where Surveyclub comes
in). The largest Market research companies in the world rely on SurveyClub to provide
members to their panels so they can help fill surveys.
The reason so many companies perform market research is to achieve an increased
understanding of the topic in question. In essence, Market Research helps individuals
or companies make informed decisions about their actions. As the competitive landscape
becomes increasingly intense regardless of the industry, market research is required
to get ahead. Whether a company is trying to gain market share or it is a University
student trying to understand the effects of a new marketing process, market research
is the foundation of making an informed decision.
In order to conduct and complete market research projects, organizations may choose
to collect the research in-house or they may decide to outsource the project work
to a market research agency. These agencies maintain panels of survey takers, and
that is what we give you the opportunity to do at SurveyClub. We allow you to join
these research panels and help complete market research projects. Now, in order
to complete these surveys, the agencies know that typically they need to compensate
their members for their time, and that is how you can be paid to participate in
Market Research. Depending on the type of study the client has requested, the market
research firm can collect data in two separate manners.
- What is Quantitative Research?
Quantitative research is number based research that normally involves statistical
analysis. Things like customer satisfaction surveys, where an organization may wish
to rank the friendliness of an employee, would be considered quantitative research.
In order for the researcher to gather significant and relevant information, the
same series of questions must be asked to every respondent. This allows for the
calculation of certain mathematical formulas such as average score and median score.
- What is Qualitative Research?
Qualitative research surrounds the "how?" or "why?" things are happening in the
way that they are. The type of questions in qualitative research studies can be
more open-ended that those asked in quantitative studies. For example, 'why do you
like the first commercial better than the second commercial?', with an empty text
box for the user to freely express why he or she liked the first commercial out
of the two commercials presented. We will talk more about focus groups later, but
this is a common method that is applied in qualitative research, as it allows the
researcher to interact with the respondent in a face to face manner and ask follow-up
questions, if necessary. In qualitative research, the discussion between the researcher
and the respondent is largely driven by actual responses from the respondent.
How is the data used?
After all the surveys are finished and the data is finally collected and compiled,
the market researchers will use the data to make decisions and recommendations to
the organization who has paid for the project. The information gathered will be
used for strategic decisions, for example, how to best improve a new product line,
or who to sell a new product to. This is where you the panelist comes in, by sharing
your opinion about your favorite (or least favorite brands) you are able to shape
the future of all sorts of products and services. Your thoughtful and honest opinions
are what help the world's largest companies improve their products and you will
be paid for you time and opinions. Market Research data allows individuals and corporations
to make educated decisions about things like design and price for new products.
Market Research Panels
SurveyClub members have the opportunity to join a number of different market research
panels. Below we will tell you the difference between custom panels and national
gen pop panels. We offer our members the opportunity to join custom panels and national
gen pop panels. Below we discuss the difference between custom panels and national
gen pop panels, research panel recruitment methods, panel member compensation, and
What is a customer research panel?
Market research panels are a great source of primary and secondary research as they
may be owned and managed by the company conducting research or by a market research
firm that provides secondary research services. The panel's objective is to collect
pertinent information on the people that join the panel in an effort to send targeted
surveys. Think about it, if you are a Mom with two kids, you are a more qualified
respondent for a diapers survey than say, a 19 year old college kid.
People that join research panels are commonly referred to as panelists. Panelists
may be customers or non-customers of a company, may meet specific demographic criteria,
or may be a broad cross section of the population. As a panelist, the more information
you provide the research panel, the more accurately they will be able to send you
surveys that you will qualify for and will likely enjoy taking. Plus, the paid surveys
that are sent out pay more when they are targeted to a harder to find portion of
the population. While those seemingly random hobbies of yours may not seem important,
it may be the reason you receive higher paying surveys!
As a member of research panels you will be rewarded for participating in research
projects (surveys, focus groups, phone interviews, and even daily polls). Each panel
is different, but the most common forms of compensation include cash, gift cards
(think Amazon.com), pre-paid debit cards, cash sweepstakes, prize drawings (how
about an iPad 2?), and charitable contributions. Research panels require sophisticated
technology, responsive customer service, and good security policies. That is why
SurveyClub takes pride in making sure that all of the research panels we recommend
have lots of surveys, good rewards, a fun member experience, and real people that
can help if you ever have any issues.
National (Gen Pop) versus Custom Research Panels
There are two main types of research panels that you will be introduced to as a
SurveyClub member, National (Gen-Pop) and Custom Panels. Both have similarities,
but it is important to highlight the differences because it will help you understand
how to get the most out of your SurveyClub membership.
National, or general population (Gen-Pop) as they are often referred to, are market
research panels that accept any and all members within a specific country. These
panels do not put restrictions on who can join them because they have so many surveys
that they need more and more people to give their opinions. These panels attempt
to keep their panel as representative of the population in that country. This is
referred to as 'census-representative'. All that means is that the market research
company does their best to keep the demographic breakdown of their panel as close
to what the census reports. For example if in the United States males make us 48%
of the population while females make up 52% the market research company does their
best to make sure their male to female ratio matches. Most national panels require
you to register, confirm your email address, and provide at least basic demographic
information before they send you surveys. Each survey invitation will tell you how
long the survey is and how much you will be rewarded if you complete the survey.
Make sure that you continue taking surveys otherwise market research companies have
been known to stop sending surveys after a period of member inactivity. As a good
rule of thumb, the more active and more information you provide, the more paid (and
higher paid) surveys you will receive.
Custom panels, on the other hand, are a unique opportunity for you. These panels
are specific to a brand, company, or group of people and provide you the opportunity
to interact on a more personal level with that company. With custom panels, not
everyone that applies to join the panel will be accepted as they are looking for
specific members and only allow a certain number of people to join. SurveyClub has
provided its members the opportunity to join custom panels for companies like The
Discovery Channel, Sprint, Comedy Central, and Crayola. These custom panels are
referred to as either blind or branded. A blind custom panel will be based around
a topic but not reveal exactly what company is doing the research. For example you
may be invited to join a custom panel that is all about jeans, but doesn't reveal
which clothing company is conducting the research. This is done to ensure that the
way you answer questions is not biased because you know who is reading your answers.
Branded custom panels, though, do reveal what company is conducting the research
and ask specific questions about their products, how you use them, and what you
like and dislike. Once you are a member of the custom panel you will be invited
to participate in surveys, forums, daily polls, and other community activities.
One great part is that the surveys you receive are survey for which you will always
qualify. Most of the custom panels you are invited to will reward you for joining
and participating in each activity with gift cards or sweepstakes entries and because
these panels are must more exclusive communities, your chances of winning are very
high! SurveyClub members love the custom panels and the surveys they get to participate
in so much that when they receive an invitation to join they do it right away to
make sure they get a spot before it fills up.
When you join SurveyClub you'll get access to only the best national research panels
that pay you for your opinion, have a fun, interactive member area, and have lots
of surveys for you. Plus, as a member of Survey you will be invited to join more
custom survey panels than anywhere else!
Market Research Panel Recruitment Methods
Market Research companies get their panelists from a number of different sources.
They may advertise on Google, Yahoo, or Bing, but most often they come to companies
like SurveyClub to find people that want to give their opinion. SurveyClub works
directly with Market Research companies to help them grow their online panel by
inviting our members to join their panel. These invitations come through email or
are placed inside your member's area. SurveyClub is paid a small fee to help these
Market Research companies find new panelists that are active and engaged.
One of the big differences between SurveyClub and any other paid survey site is
you will not only be invited to join panels that pay you for your opinion, but you
will also receive paid surveys directly from SurveyClub. All surveys that you receive
directly from SurveyClub pay cash. As a general rule, the longer the surveys you
are invited to take, the greater the cash incentive.
Reward and compensation will change from panel to panel, but all of them reward
you for participating. The only way to earn any money, win prizes, or be entered
into sweepstakes is if you actually take the surveys you are sent. The rewards that
are offered include cash, gift cards, pre-paid debit cards, cash sweepstakes, prize
drawings, and charitable contributions. The survey invitations that you receive
via email from market research companies will tell you how long the survey will
take to complete and what you will receive in return.
Customer Research Panel Maintenance
It is important for you to know that market research companies monitor the activity
of their panelists to ensure surveys are being completed and members are happy.
These research companies want you to stay engaged and participate. When panelists
become non-responsive to survey invitations, market research companies will stop
sending survey invitations and deactivate that account. That is why it is important
to stays active. If you are ever dissatisfied, or have questions, we highly recommend
contacting that particular market research company with your questions and concerns.
What Are Focus Groups?
SurveyClub offers its members the opportunity to participate in focus groups. Above
we discussed the difference between quantitative research and qualitative research.
Focus groups are a form of qualitative research in which a group of people are asked
about their perceptions, opinions, beliefs and attitudes towards a product, service,
concept, advertisement, idea, or packaging. Questions are asked in a group setting
where participants are free to talk with other group members.
When you join SurveyClub, we ask you for your zip code so we can invite you to focus
group in your area. SurveyClub does not conduct the focus group, but we do help
to recruit the people that are interested in participating.
How do focus groups help the marketing of new products?
Focus groups are an important part of evaluating new products before they go to
market. Focus groups allow companies to test things like different types packaging
and different product names before the new product is made available to the public.
After each focus group discusses, views, and tests the product, they will fill out
a short survey to summarize their thoughts for the researcher.
SurveyClub members in the Denver area recently participated in a focus group for
Leprino cheese. The focus group lasted two days. There were four groups of five
to seven people and each group spent between one and two hours each day discussing
different pizza concepts. On the second day, the groups actually sampled pizza with
different types of cheese.
Types of focus groups
SurveyClub members will be given the opportunity to participate in a number of different
types of focus groups. The focus group with Leprino cheese mentioned above is an
example of a "Mini Focus Group". Below is a list of the different types of focus
groups you may be asked to participate in if you become a SurveyClub member.
- Two-way focus group - one focus group watches another focus group and discusses
the observed interactions and conclusion
- Dual moderator focus group - one moderator ensures the session progresses
smoothly, while another ensures that all the topics are covered
- Dueling moderator focus group - two moderators deliberately take opposite
sides on the issue under discussion
- Respondent moderator focus group - one and only one of the respondents are
asked to act as the moderator temporarily
- Client participant focus groups - one or more client representatives participate
in the discussion, either covertly or overtly
- Mini focus groups - groups are composed of four or five members rather than
6 to 12
- Teleconference focus groups - telephone network is used
- Online focus groups - computers connected via the internet are used
Focus groups are a good way to conduct research because often times they are less
expensive than other forms of market research and they tend to provide accurate
information regarding the product or service that is being evaluated. In some cases,
focus groups can become expensive if the product or service needs to be marketed
nationwide. When this is the case, it is important to conduct focus groups in different
areas around the country because attitudes towards a new product can differ depending
on local. By doing this, we can ensure that the research collected gives an accurate
representation of people's opinions from different geographical areas. National
focus groups are a lot of fun for SurveyClub members because members from all over
the country participate in the same study. When the study is complete, SurveyClub
members have an opportunity to share their experience with members who participated
in the same study in a different city. You will be able to share what you liked
and didn't like. Sometimes SurveyClub will survey its members regarding the focus
group they participated in and will share the answers to that survey with the company
that conducted the focus group.
Remember... your opinions really are important. When you join SurveyClub you will
have the opportunity to drive the consumer experience - the stuff you encounter
every day! Really, what are you waiting for? With this much fun available, the question
isn't 'Why should I join SurveyClub?' it is 'Why shouldn't I join?' See you on the
