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 and maximize the return on investment for profit orgianzations.

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.

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!

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 Cashsurveys database, 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.
