Getting Started with Annika's on Surveys
You may be asking, "What do I do first to do Surveys?" This page will help.
Doing Surveys you need to be patient, as they seem to always repeat the same
questions over, and over again. You will also need to be very observant to the
email invites, as well as the survey. The more survey sites you belong to, the
more chances you will have at getting the same survey from another company. If
you disqualified (DQ) from a survey the first time, you will have a chance to
make it through a second time. The email invites often have select words
pertaining to what the survey is about, example, "stocks" so if you don't invest
or never plan to, you will be disqualified from the survey.
Here's how Surveys work: 1. You sign up on the Survey website and fill in your profiles. Usually the more data you enter the better, as this will help companies figure out which offers your demographics best fit. Just be prepared every survey you take asks the same boring repeated questions. Sex, age, race. It's a general template they all stick to and should move away from as our profiles already state it. 2. Check your email inbox and junk mail folders DAILY. 3. The survey email invite should state the length of time the survey will take as well as the payment for your time. 4. After you complete the Survey or are told you disqualified you can go on to the next survey email. 5. If you are paid in points, you must log into the Survey website and request payment when you have reached the minimum level to cash out.
Some of this may be repeats for those of you who read the first page, but in case someone hasn't I figured all the information is better than part of it. COPYRIGHT Annika's 1999 - 2017 www.amylynn.org/home
One of the most helpful things is Roboform. Roboform is a form filling tool that allows you to store passwords and any other form filling information you may need. This is an absolute must if you fill in lots of online forms such as subscription page. This is free to download but we highly recommend paying for the upgrade. This is by far the single best use of our money so far. If you need another reason then this is much better than the Google form filler.
You also will need an email account besides your main one you use to like signup for Annika's with. You can get a free email account at such places as yahoo.com, hotmail.com and inbox.com to name a few. It's important that you don't mix your personal emails with your Survey or Paid To Read Emails. This way you shouldn't have to worry about spam and or false closing of your email accounts.
Before you sign up for anything other than an email address, if you are using
something that prevents spam that the person sending email has to click.. remove
it. Those are called "Auto Responders". You can not sign up for anything if you
have an auto responder set up on your email account. Even if it's a vacation
You will also need a program in which you can get payment in. Surveys are mostly paid in check or PayPal. Which paid to read emails, it's PayPal or AlertPay. Please note, I said mostly. There are other payment processors as well.
Survey tools is a good place to go for getting started with Surveys. On that page you can find links to programs which you may need from time to time.
Survey questions and answers page is created to help you sort some things you may be wondering.
Survey tips will help guide you through what profiles need to be filled in and other things you may have no clue about.
Survey Database This is a completely sortable listing. You can pick payment type, location and even method of either Surveys, Focus Groups or Product Testing. COPYRIGHT Annika's 1999 - 2017 www.amylynn.org/home
The been paid survey page is links of sites that have actually paid. This is good to go over first for joining, as they are proven paying Surveys.
After going over that page it's a good idea to go over the first page of the over 2400 Surveys. Page (1) and page (48) are the pages you will want to visit the most, as they are updated often. You should check these out monthly at least. You may want to look over the country Surveys section you belong to. I would also recommend that you check over the paid pages. The paid pages are listings of Survey companies, Focus Groups, and Product Testing websites that have either paid my volunteer members, myself, or our members. We always request proof of payment to ensure, it's all legitimate.
Be sure to look over the Survey Blacklist, full of sites to stay away from for one reason or another.
If you have teens in the house you will want to look over the Youth Survey Panels.
Some terms you will need to learn are: Profiles - profiles are the extra added information you provide after the signup process. It is not the main survey you filled in to join the survey company. Screeners - Screeners are Surveys that screen you to see if you fit other Surveys. All survey companies do this at one point or another. Sometimes it's done for product testing reasons, or higher paying Surveys.
The only way to really learn is to sign up, you can read all you want and need, but you can't understand till you take the leap and try. COPYRIGHT Annika's 1999 - 2017 www.amylynn.org/home
The message board, bulletin board, news groups or forum. There are many words for this but it's basically a place to post messages of all kinds. Please be sure to do a search before asking something that may already be answered, this is to save you and the volunteer members time and embarrassment. Due to lack of time and abuse, the forum no longer allows sign ups.
I also feel its important for you to read the Protection page. You should also be aware of your rights as a panelist: http://www.insightsassociation.org/issues-policies/best-practice/respondent-bill-rights

If you come across a link and it doesn't load, (dead link) either remove the www or add a www at the start as part of the web address in the URL bar. If it still doesn't load, please report that to us using our contact page. So we can update with the correct link. Thank you.
Payment listing information:
Cash = This could be any number of things, PayPal, actual cash, Amazon Gift Cards, Visa Gift Cards or Check. Example, you earn in cash on their site, $15.90 but could end up being offered one of the above forms of payments. Basically, anything that converts into something spendable.
Amazon Gift Cards/ Amazon Gift Certificates = Could be emailed, or through the regular mail.
Points Converted = This means you earn points, 100 points = $1 for example. Each survey panel is different. Points could be converted into Amazon, PayPal, Gift cards, or items.
Check / Cheque = Just as it states, paper writing of payment.
Sweepstakes = Drawing, which may lead to check, PayPal, Cash, Amazon. All depends.
Other = Could be products, coupons, freebies, samples, prizes, wire transfer, direct deposit.
We list them like this to make it easier for you to understand. Sometimes it's hard to tell because companies change their payments without notice, and often without listing it on their website. All Panels will tell you in the FAQ section what the pay options and rules are.
