Hi all! It's June, and it means that we are almost halfway through the year 2017! Have you redeemed your survey earning this year? Don't forget to upload your earning proofs to share your earning with other members!
Last time, we heard from Tushar about his experience in doing paid survey. This month, we invite Aizat from Malaysia as our featured member. Let's find out what problems he encounters and tips to avoid them.
Aizat's Favourite Survey Panel Toluna!
1. Hi, could you give us an introduction of yourself?
Hi there PanelPlace, my name is Aizat Izmi Bin Mohamed Zaharin, you can call me Ijat or Jat for short. Currently, I am a Trainee in a company under the government’s programme to develop fresh graduates with on-the-job-training. I love to go hiking, camping and doing other adventurous stuffs. I love sports too because it keeps me fit and healthy even though right now I am slightly overweight! One interesting fact about me is that I have a twin brother. Since my schooling days, I have always played badminton together with him as a doubles pair. We make a great team, I can assure you that. ☺
2. How often do you do surveys?
I do surveys almost every day, often during lunch break at work and on weekends.
3. What is your favourite Survey Panel and why?
My favourite Survey Panel would be Toluna because they regularly send me surveys to answer. Also, the points can be redeemed for various rewards such as vouchers and cash through Paypal too.
4. Are there any particular survey topics you enjoy doing the most?
I enjoy doing the survey on topics of foods and beverages the most. Nyum nyum!
5. Could you name a few of the most interesting or unexpected questions you have gotten from a survey? What was your reaction?
Most of the questions I have gotten are quite usual, nothing unexpected so far.
6. Could you share with us your PanelPlace story?
I have been a PanelPlace member since my older brother introduced it to me sometime last year. I decided to join PanelPlace because it gives me the confidence to answer the survey and earn some side-income with all the earning proofs that other members have been posting. Also, ever since my brother became one of the featured survey-taker, I have to say my confidence in most of the survey panels has increased.
What I like about PanelPlace? Hmm, maybe because PanelPlace puts all legit survey panels in one single place and acts as a platform to show that one can actually gain money by answering surveys online!
7. Have you had any reservations about paid surveys before joining us? Has your thinking changed since?
Yup! Before this, I was not sure whether online paid surveys are legit. Now, it all has changed thanks to PanelPlace. I have gotten paid a lot since then just by answering surveys online!
8. What do you think about paid surveys?
I think paid surveys are a great source of side income. Besides that, I like to express my feedback and contribute to the community by voicing out. I hope that my answer would give something back to the community. Also, it helps to fill up my free time as well! I think others should do paid surveys; this is because they can get paid just by doing so! All they have to do is just answer some simple questions during their free time! Of course, I do refer my friends to do paid survey myself as well!
One tip I have for the community is to answer the survey questions as honestly as you can! Honesty is the best policy after all!
9. Have you faced any difficulties when doing paid surveys for multiple survey panels?
The biggest problem would be getting screened out from surveys. I get upset because sometimes after answering the surveys halfway through, I get screened out due to the quota. Now, I try to answer the surveys as soon as I get the notifications from the survey panels.
10. What would you tell people who are considering doing Paid Surveys?
Just do it! All you need is just an internet connection and maybe a laptop or smartphone to answer the surveys.
11. Is there anything else you would like to say to the PanelPlace community or team?
Thank you for choosing me as the featured-survey taker. I wish that there are more survey panels, but I guess the team is probably working on that and researching or investigating other surveys panels right now. Also, maybe PanelPlace should give some rewards to members after they have reached a certain milestone, for example, rewarding them with $10 (one time) for all PanelPlace members who uploaded 100 earning proofs. That’s all I guess, looking forward to more surveys!! ☺
Thank you Aizat! We know that everyone has their fair share of getting screened out, so it was great that Aizat shared his tips to avoid it so we can complete more paid surveys in the future.
As mentioned, Aizat is actually our previous featured member's brother, and he started doing paid surveys because of his brother's encouragement! Thus, share your experience in doing paid surveys with your friends and family so they can also earn extra money from paid surveys!
See you next time
