Questions about Membership

  • How do I become a member?

    It's very easy. Simply fill in your details on our sign-up page. We'll send you a link to the application form so you are able to confirm your membership. If you are 15 or younger, ask your parent or guardian to apply on your behalf and become a member and you can take part in the surveys via them.

  • Can I join if I live outside Australia?

    No, unfortunately membership of this online panel is open only to Australian residents.

Questions about Surveys

  • How often am I going to be asked to complete surveys?

    We are regularly sending out survey invitations, but cannot say who or when any member will receive invitations as each of our surveys is customised and based around the research goals for each individual client. Depending on your profile, we may ask you to complete surveys more or less often than once per month. For this reason, we ask you to keep your profile as up to date as possible. Please note some firewalls may prevent delivery of our survey invitations.

  • Why are surveys conducted?

    Businesses, governments, public bodies and similar organisations are interested in the views and attitudes of the people who use their products and services. The more they know about what citizens and consumers think, the easier it is for them to improve and adapt what they supply.

  • How long does an average survey take to complete?

    The number of questions vary from one survey to another. We try to keep surveys as enjoyable as possible, although we have to make sure the results are meaningful. In general the survey lengths range from 10 to 40 minutes. Generally speaking, the longer the survey the more points it should offer. From time to time we run special projects for clients where the survey might be one or two hours and these are rewarded at a much higher level.

  • Can you post the surveys to me, or phone me?

    Unfortunately there is no other way to take part in these online surveys, you need to complete them over the Internet.
