    Has anyone out there that does paid surveys noticed that during the holiday shopping season there seems to be an increase in the number of available surveys that you are eligible for. And the odd thing is that it seems to cover all topics, not just things that would normally be associated with Christmas presents etc.

    it is because more companies are looking to collect data from survey takers so they can prepare a plan of attack for the beginning of they year. Most everything starts over on Jan. 1, including marketing and advertising budgets. If these company have a better idea of how consumers behave, their marketing and advertising will be much more effective. So...take advantage of it now and earn some extra cash for the holidays!!!!!

    As shuey says, companies are finalising their marketing budget and looking for inputs from customers

    I agree that this is a good time to try to get in on as many surveys as possible.

    Newbie, here.

    How do you "watch for" surveys and get in on them quickly? Also, can you shave time spent by storing info that's repeated on each form in a Word document or something?

    Thanks,

    Yes, I agree. And the reward $ amount per survey is also getting better (increasing) every day. [​IMG]

    The key thing is to check your inbox every hour or so because they fill up fast, and I mean FAST!

    I like using gmail for my dedicated email address. Google allows you to create a personal home page which then will allow you to have a quick glance of your gmail inbox without even opening it. I head to my home page and check every 30 -45 minutes for new surveys. That way, I don't miss any crucial opportunities.

    There is no quick way to it, you need to check your emails couple of times daily and be sure to check your Spam folder as some survey invitation email end up in there.

    To store your info, you could use a program called Roboform which remembers your datas - name, username, address, password, etc. It can be downloaded for free, however the free version can save limited datas. Consider ugrading if you need to store more data.

    To download Roboform, you could do a google search or you can download it from my website at the info & tips page.

    Frequently checking emails for paid surveys just becomes second nature after a while.

    Looking back now at the holiday season there was somewhat of an increase in paid survey invitations, but not a drastic increase.

    I check my e-mail every 1 hour, when new surveys come, I fill it as quick as you can. [​IMG]

    By doing this you will definitally increase your chances of being able to take the survey before the quota fills up, and the research company closes the survey.
