Joining a panel helps the respondents to be free from keeping record of Credit-Debit-Balances and simply concentrate on opinionating. It’s important to be competent and have matching profile suitable to the survey subject. Every Tom-Dick-Harry should not take any and every survey – just for making a few quick bucks. Sincere and serious respondents get more opportunity than casual respondents. Casual respondents are identified during the survey course and termed out – without compensation and at times even debarred from next opportunity. Severe penalties and seizure of earnings also get imposed on serial defaulters / miscreants.
During the registration process to an online survey panel – the person filling the form is profiled based upon the information thus provided / made available. This helps the person / member on panel to be tracked and identified for the right survey opportunity commensurate to their competency, interest, taste and availability. It’s important and essential for the person joining an online survey panel to provide complete, correct and true information – which is beneficial to both – the researcher and the respondent.
Any person wanting to join an online survey panels should be sure of not paying for it. No true online survey panel would ever ask for any membership / registration fees. In fact panels like AOne Panel and Corp Scan Online even pay for registration. It’s an honor for online survey panels to have a relevant respondent with them and not the other way round. So its required be alert at making a studied decision. Whenever any agency asks money – don’t join it – as they would be privileged to have member of relevant profile on panel and the member obliges them by spending time in filling the registration form information.
Paid opinion poll sharing by members makes richer – whom? The research agency! The member on the agency panel benefits from that process getting compensated for their opinion and time. It would be foolish on part of the agency to lose serious and sincere respondents from panel for the pennies that they should and would payout for the pounds they make!
