The benefits of joining a panel is that you will be invited to participate on an ongoing basis and your account will build up. In addition to that, you will only be asked your demographics of your household once. The information you provide will be kept confidential and will be used to select surveys that are appropriate for you.

Why do the survey companies ask so many questions about me and my household? These types of surveys are called profiling surveys. Market research companies ask you questions about you and your household in order to select surveys that will be applicable to you. For example, they won’t send you a survey about dog food if you don’t have a dog. They also ask these profiling surveys to select members to participate in a survey. For example, a client may have a product for little children and they may be looking to survey females 25 to 34 with a child under two in their household. Finally, these demographic questions may make the results more meaningful to the client. They may look at results from one part of the country and compare them to the results from another part of the country.

How many surveys will I get? The number of surveys you will get will depend on which types of people they are looking for. They may have a lot of surveys for new moms, or for dog owners, or for men, etc. You don’t have to take all of the surveys – you can choose to participate when you have the time. But remember, the more surveys you take, the more money you will make.
