Advantages Good cash rewards for participating in market research.
Disadvantages Often surveys are run in work hours, not so many on offer at the moment
Indiefield - the name of this company tells you absolutely nothing about what they do or who they are! But their opening slogan "Opinions That Count" start to make you realise they are some type of consumer directory/survey/marketing company.So what exactly is Indiefield?
How do I join?
To join Indiefield it's as simple as joining their Consumer Directory at www.indiefield.net
Entry level account. Name and contact details only
Highest account. Same information for the above accounts, but you are also required to post a photograph of yourself. Indiefield claim this gives their clients more security.
This is further broken down into 6 key areas:
** My Account: Your name, email address, contact preferences, password etc
** My Details: Photo (if you choose Premier Account), sex, DOB, martial status, house/flat details, household income bracket, marital status, banking/financial products** My Car: Make, model, type, age etc plus a section for a second car
** My Work: Employment status, job title, personal income bracket** My Leisure: TV and media (what do you watch and read), Technology (phone provider, key websites you use/visit), Miscellaneous (travel and pets)
There is also a called "My Invitations" where any surveys or research that is available will be listed, and you select to request to join.
And finally there is a section called "My History", where any money you have been paid is shown.
To be selected for their market research you must follow the link to complete a short survey online and then you will have a phone interview to ensure you are suitable.
If you are selected, you will be sent an email confirming all the details including payment and time/location.
My boyfriend and I have been members of Indiefield for more than 2 years now. In that time between the 2 of us, we've probably made over £120.
We've been invited to participate in many more surveys, but they are often held during business hours which make it impractical to attend.
My boyfriend attended one face to face interview when there were some really bad storms on in London and their survey population was dwindling, so they doubled the cash reward as incentive to attend!!!Most recently I've been invited to, but unable to attend, a survey based on British tourists who will be in Paris over certain weeks in July!
We've also done the odd phone interview or 2 where we've been sent cheques as rewards for participatingSo does it pay?
Now for the not so good stuff!
I will say however, that I've noticed less surveys are being posted on their site and they are coming more through email. There also haven't been as many surveys in the last 6 months - signs of the economic times?
I've also never had the "My History" pages updated to show the surveys I have attended/particpated in.A word of warning - as with any market research surveys, they seem to have an automatic exclusion from the survey if you have recently completed similar market research for another company in the past 6 months!
I've found it worth participating in the surveys that Indiefield offer. It's a great way to make some extra cash - and you never know you may learn something!! I certainly knew nothing about Japanese encephalitis until I did the survey!!
