Crowdtap is a fun site that prompts you to answer interesting short questions to earn points. Each day a series of questions will be available for you to answer, each one only taking seconds complete as you click your opinion from the available choices. These questions normally earn you around 25-50 points each. You can also earn larger quantity points (1,000-2,000) by completing fun tasks. These tasks can be anything from taking a photo in a grocery store of an item to sharing fun information with your friends. The site even goes even further and allows you to opt in to moderated discussions and sampling events to earn even more points. Once you accumulate points you can turn them in for amazon vouchers or other great items.
BzzAgent is a sample and share based website. You are frequently asked to answer short surveys about your lifestyle and when your interests match what they are looking for they will invite you to join a campaign. Once you accept the campaign you will be mailed a sample (usually a full sized product) in the mail to test. If you share your review of the product with your friends through their website you have a better chance of being included in the next product campaign. Its extremely fun and easy.
Smiley-360 is along the same lines as BzzAgent. They will invite you to join in a campaign and send you a free item to try. After trying the item you can share your thoughts on the product with your friends and earn smiles. The more smiles you earn the better your chances to get more campaigns. This website, along with BzzAgent, do not offer any monetary rewards. The opportunity to experience the new products is your reward.
I am still quite new to influenser. It does, at first, seem a bit overwhelming. There are several surveys and tasks to complete to unlock badges. You can only unlock a certain number of badges so you need to pick the categories you are most interested in. If you are chosen for a campaign, then Influenser will send you a VoxBox filled with different products to try. After you try them you can go back to the site and answer more surveys about the products you tried. I’m still working on this site, but I did recieve my first VoxBox and it was quite fun and filled with great goodies.
This is a survey site that pays you to take their surveys, however they only accept new applicants once in awhile. Look for new applicant banners to be displayed on websites and I will keep you up to date if I see them. Once you sign up you will receive emails from the company when a survey is available. The surveys can be quite lengthy, but are usually quite interesting. Each survey pays $3. Once in awhile the company hosting the survey will send you a full sized product to test and answer questions about. I have been using this research company for several years and have enjoyed my time with them.
