Questions about Surveys

  • How often will I be asked to take surveys?

    We send out survey invitations on a regular basis, but cannot say who or when any member will receive invitations. This is because each survey is customized and based around the research goals for each individual client. Depending on your profile, we may ask you to complete surveys more or less often. For this reason, we ask you to keep your profile as up to date as possible. Please note some firewalls may prevent delivery of our survey invitations.

  • Why are surveys conducted?

    Surveys are conducted because businesses, governments, public bodies, and similar organizations are interested in the views and attitudes of the people who use their products and services. The more they know about what customers and citizens think, the easier it is for them to improve and adapt what they supply.

  • How long does an average survey take to complete?

    The number of questions varies from one survey to another. We try to keep surveys as short as possible, although we have to make sure the results are meaningful. In general a survey should take around 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

  • Can you mail the surveys to me or conduct them over the phone?

    Unfortunately there is no other way to take part in these online surveys, you need to complete them over the Internet.
