What is Research?



What is Survey Research?


Survey research is a legitimate and scientific process of acquiring data and opinions from the public. Researchers seek to determine the public's opinion regarding products, issues, candidates, and other topics. Such information is used to develop new products, improve services, influence policy, and is used by health care providers, the government, airlines, private businesses and others. The survey research process is necessary to improve or maintain quality of life.

 

What are Online Surveys?

Consumers answer questions on the Internet or they participate in online interviews (focus groups) and in exchange they are paid money (up to $250 an hour).

Internet Research is a growing trend that gives marketers a reliable alternative to traditional ways of collecting consumer opinions. Surveying consumers on-site, over the telephone or through the mail is expensive and time-consuming. Online surveys are faster and cheaper. For this reason, developing large online panels has become a priority for marketing research companies and they are willing to pay for our opinions.

Take a look at a sample survey.

 

What is a Focus Group?

A focus group is a personal interview simultaneously conducted among a small number of individuals. The interview relies more on group discussion than on a series of directed questions to generate data. It is also called a group in-depth interview.

Focus groups are often held online using chat systems and they pay up to $250 for sharing your opinions in an interactive manner.

 

What is Mystery Shopping?

Mystery shopping is the practice of using trained shoppers to anonymously evaluate customer service, operations, employee integrity, merchandising and product quality.

Companies use mystery shopping to measure the performance of their services and keep customers as satisfied as possible. This way they maintain their reputation and prevent losing customers due to poor customer service. It costs 10x more to recruit a new customer than keep an existing one, and one unhappy customer will tell 5 other people about his bad experience with a service! Companies use mystery shopping to prevent this from happening. It's a fun job that pays real money. You can earn money to shop in your favorite stores, eat in your favorite restaurants, drive a car, see a movie at your local theater or to play golf!

You can read in the Wall Street Journal about how a mystery shopper living in Manhattan makes $7000 a month for shopping at malls, drinking at bars, driving cars and taking weekend trips to Hawaii and Mexico.

 

Who pays for Survey Research and why?

Research assignments are ordered and paid by large corporations, government agencies, and institutions who know that listening carefully to consumers is important to their success.

 

What about my privacy? Should I be concerned?

Survey research companies will never reveal your identity, personal information or individual answers unless you specifically give them permission to do so.

As long as you work with legitimate research companies like the one listed in Maximum Paid Surveys, you shouldn't be concerned at all. Research companies handle consumers’ privacy very seriously and all the information you supply is combined with the information provided by other participants.

 

Paid Surveys - How does it work?


What should I do to start getting paid by survey companies?

This is a four step process:

1.   Subscribe to Maximum Paid Surveys: You get immediate access to a broad collection of qualitative companies.
2.   Register with research companies. Your details are stored in their databases and according to your profile they will invite you by email to participate in surveys and focus groups.

4.   Get rewarded for your opinions.

 That's all!

Who can participate in paid surveys?

I don't live in the United-States. Can I participate in paid surveys?

More surveys are conducted in the United States than in other countries. Nonetheless, survey opportunities aren’t limited to U.S. residents only. If you live in Canada, the United Kingdom or Australia, you can participate in many market researches conducted there and get paid too. People living in Western Europe are also in growing demand and they can enjoy this opportunity as well.

Our site has sorted survey companies by countries and by states so you will find active companies in your region right away.
 

How many surveys can I take?

The sky is the limit! As many as you can!

The number of survey invitations you receive depends on the number of companies you have registered with (the more the better!) and on their requirements. These companies will send you an invitation if your profile matches these requirements (age, sex, education, profession, country, etc…).

There are plenty of surveys opportunities for everyone and with MaximumPaidSurveys.com your email inbox will soon fill up with invitations.
 

How much can I make?

Your income will mainly depend on the number of companies you register with and on your personal profile. Everyone is different so we can't say exactly how much you will make. You can earn up to $75 for online surveys and up to $250 per hour for focus groups (in depth interviews). You won't get rich with paid online surveys but you can make easy money and have fun. So... Why not try? You have nothing to lose. 
 

How will I get paid?

The companies that pay for your opinions sponsor the surveys and focus groups you participate in. In general you are not paid directly by these companies but by market research firms that conduct surveys on their behalf.

You can be paid by check sent by postal mail, online using PayPal or with coupons that you can use in leading stores on the Internet. You will always know the details up front.
