I received an email today for a paid market survey on wine. This survey – conducted by National Data Research– would give me a $125 Visa card for a 1 hour and 15 minute survey session. Not bad, that calculates to out to $1.66 dollars per minute! I filled out the Survey Monkey form online and am waiting to see if I am called.
This is certainly not the first time I’ve been selected by National Data Research for studies. Some are in local offices, some in the city of Chicago, and some are online. There are some limitations of course: Generally these survey companies will only allow one survey every 3 to 6 months, but still….
The fees paid range from $50 to $150 for an hour or two to review consumer products and provide written or verbal responses. Often this is in a group setting and moderated by a professional. I’ve been asked to test mattresses, review technical products, and provide input for company logos and slogans. No strings attached with this – just a little time money for an opinion!
National Data Research is actively seeking consumers to participate in their surveys. The registration is free and you will be asked for some basic demographic information to qualify for future studies. Sign up for this – what do you have to lose?
