Making Ends Meet - A Mother’s Story on Market Research Opportunities

What’s up you guys? Everyone good? As you all know, Mr. M S Srinivasan was featured on our last member blog. This time, we have a book enthusiast, Hafika Hanafi with us! Without further ado, Hafika Hanafi from Singapore will share us his tips and tricks in doing paid surveys.

Our past member feature blogs cover students and work from home individuals. It has been a while since we heard from a full-time employee, isn’t it?

How about we jump in down below to learn more about paid surveys from someone who is very active in taking surveys?

PanelPlace Says Hi: Hafika Hanafi

1. Hi, could you give us an introduction of yourself?

Hey y’all! I’m Hafika. I’m 25 years old and a mother of a beautiful girl. I am currently working as Guest Services Agent at a hotel in Singapore. I’d say that the shift work is pretty tough for me and my daughter still needs me around but I still make it work. I enjoy reading and definitely spending time with my daughter whenever I’m free.

2. How often do you do surveys?

I will always do my surveys on my first off days. Meaning, I do it once a week and it is usually at night. Why you may ask? Because whenever my daughter is around and awake, giving her attention is my ultimate priority. In other words, I’ll always do my surveys whenever she is asleep.

3. What is your favorite Survey Panel and why?

Actually, I don’t have a favorite survey panel, but I’m always active at Toluna SG and Global Test Market. They will always have surveys there and I enjoy doing it.

4. Could you share with us your PanelPlace story?

I’ve been a member of PanelPlace for a couple of months now. PanelPlace definitely took my attention when I searched about online paid survey. Through this, I can take note of my redemption and the total amount I received. I am somewhat promoting the survey websites and inform others that certain survey sites are not scams.

Got some free time? Use it to do paid surveys and earn rewards. Let's Do it!

5. What do you think about paid surveys?

I started taking online paid surveys to earn extra income. It may not be much but at least it could help me a little bit. However, it is up to the individual whether or not they like doing it. I did refer to a friend of mine once and she actually likes doing it.

6. What was the biggest problem you faced when doing paid surveys for multiple survey panels?

Having multiple survey panels is actually a good thing. If I can’t redeem from panel “A”, I can redeem my points at other panels (if my points is enough). There is a problem back then when I just started doing surveys and there are many survey panels I’ve subscribed to. At the end, I can’t keep track of the websites. Things change now, thanks to PanelPlace. I don’t have to bookmark the website at all. I’m also able to keep track of the total amount I redeem in a book. Now, it’s just a click away when I open my PanelPlace app. Awesome!!!

7. Is there anything else you would like to say to the PanelPlace community or team?

Thank you PanelPlace team for awesome survey panels availability. You guys have the greatest panels and helps you to keep track of frequent survey websites and of our income.

Thank you Hafika Hanafi for all the feedbacks and for sharing! It is definitely a huge privilege to have you as one of our members. We are so pleased to hear a magnificent and positive response from you. It is such a huge privilege for us to be able to have a supportive member community and thank you for being with us through our ups and downs. We will definitely strive to improve and become a better place for all opportunities!
