I’ve been participating in online surveys for about five years now, and really enjoy them. I’ve seen pre-release movie commercials, TV ads, and product ideas. I’ve even gotten samples at home to try and then report on when done; so far I’ve tested hand lotion, spaghetti sauce, and even toilet paper (the survey questions on that one were pretty detailed and product-specific, too). It’s fun, plus I’ve been compensated with cash incentives ranging from $1 to $50.
Do any of you do online surveys? Where do you draw the line when it comes to the kind of information these market researchers ask?
