This zone of
quiz-winner is a bit different to the rest of the site. The
rest of the site is purely about quizzes, quiz websites, quiz
questions and answers and so on.
This section does
have a connection to quizzes (tenuous at times to be fair which
is why it is separate!) in that we are looking at sites that
want you to answer questions normally as part of some sort
style survey -
Where you answer
questions about you and your habits, likes and
Some are quite
"quizzy" in approach but most
are outand out consumer surveys
in one form or another.
All of them want
your answers for, at some level or
research for product research and
product marketing so that their clients
can post stuff to you or email you
offers from them.
are big business - There is a LOT of money
involved. Companies like Experian and
Acxiom who collect, manage and sell consumer opinions and
data are 1 BILLION $$
good part about this for YOU is that if when
know what you're doing YOU can get money out of it
too - Think about it. Big companies invest
millions when they launch a new product and most of them
kind of think it's a good idea to check to see if people
like the stuff before they roll it out to the
research is stuff like focus groups and fancy data
modelling - But a massive part of it is going out there
and getting survey companies to pop their questions to their
survey takers - that can be over the phone, forms in the post
or online, in many cases all 3. And they're willing to
pay for your feedback too.
Types of Cash
following 2 sections have sub sections split between UK
and USA. I hope to add other areas
Competitions and prize draw
- Some survey companies
entice you in with competitions and prize
- This is OK as there are
loads of them and any reputable company WILL give the
prizes out - they are required by law to do so and have to
prove that they have.
- But it does not equate to
cash unless you're lucky enough to win and that it not very
likely to be honest. But if you've nothing better to do
give it a go and do loads of them.
- The best type to
go for are competitions -by definition this means
there is some sort of quiz challenge involved. It may be
(likely to be) very simple but it does filter out the truly
lax and so cut the odds a bit.
Real Cash Surveys or "in kind" - Your Opinions Paid
- Real hard cash is not as
easy to get as many websites will have you believe but it
IS possible to get paid for your answers on
- You will need to put some time in to sign up for them
and do their intro profile surveys so that they can match
you up with their clients needs.
- Buy once you do...and once you've submitted your
personality(ies ;-) it can deliver up a steady stream of
extra cash (you ain't gonna get rich but it can pay bills
- One survey type that is increasingly
common I'm pleased to say is the voucher reward
survey. You do surveys and earn the cash
equivalents in vouchers to spend at a wide range of shops.
Great if you're going to shop at those places
Privacy and what you need to do to be
In the UK I'd say don't give any info to the government,
they'll probably just lose it ;-)
- And check out the privacy or Data Protection statements
they give (if there are none steer clear)
- Make sure you know what your answers will be used for
and if you don't like it don't do it.
- If you're unsure contact the company by phone or email
and ask. If no reply = no good.
- Check them out online too - is it a proper company with
a proper (not PO box) address?
Make sure you check before you send your reply that you
are happy with what your information will be used for.
- In UK in order to email you afterwards with
info there should be a box that YOU tick to say you
WANT them to send you stuff. Not one that you tick
to say don't send me stuff.
- In either case I suggest setting up an email
address for surveys only so you can track anyone
who send when they should not.
- When you get involved with good solid paid for
survey companies you should set an email address up
just for that company to send to you on e.g.,
- this way you can be sure to get only their emails
on it and not lose important and possible money
earning emails in junk filters.
Surveys not to do
- Anything where you have to call a premium rate
- If you're unsure check the small print wherever it is
you've found it. If there IS no small print then definitely
about what your info will be used for.
- Any questions asking for info like bank account
numbers, passport details, driver license etc - Think ID
Fraud and steer clear. better still, note the details down
and send to the Police or Data Protection people.
