This thread is for survey general questions & answers only.
There are individual threads for the companies below, please search the forum for these threads and then post your question in there.
This thread is to offer advice, honest tips & to ask questions when they come up.
Where do I start?
Well you start by reading what others have written on any specific survey site decide what sites are the best fit for you. I do recommend that you sign up with as many legitimate sites as possible; it takes a while for you to start to get surveys. Some sites you will only hear from occasionally, others on a daily or weekly basis. I would highly suggest that you get a form filler (google auto fill or RoboForm) it saves you a lot of typing.
The most important thing that you should do is to be honest when filling out your demographic information.
Be honest when you answer survey questions. The survey companies talk to each other and you can get black listed for not being honest. They also have people that watch message board and will report back to the companies who is cheating, the bottom line is that you will be caught. Then you will lose that extra money and your chance at making a difference on what products will go on the market.
Answer as many survey invitations as possible this keeps you on their lists. Even if you know you will not qualify answer them, it only take a minute or two and can lead to more invitations.
Fill out all of the demographic questions. This helps the company to know what surveys to send you. The more you have filled out the better your chance are at getting surveys.
Don’t plan on retirement with your survey money. Yes they do bring some extra cash but you will not be able to live on this alone.
Most important never ever pay to get a list of survey sites, to take a survey or to take part in any projects.
How to search craigslist for surveys or research projects:
If we aren't posting projects from your area, this is how you can do it yourself.
1)Go to: http://craigslist.org
2)Find your city &/or state
3)Scroll down until you see ETC (under jobs)
4)Click ETC and that is where you will find them.
5)Then come back to GottaDeal and post what you have found here. Be very descriptive in the title what is the study about? Where is it (online, nationwide, phone, etc)? How much does it pay? For an example of a good thread check out one of mine DramaQueenLucy.
If you want to help us out here at GD. Come back, Search to see if it has already been posted. If not copy and paste it. Rewrite the title of the post. Be as descriptive as possible and include as much information as possible. If the study takes place only in a certain area add that to the title. If it's Nationwide, add that. If it's a telephone or online interview, add that. For examples of good thread titles please see my (DramaQueenLucy) posts

Just have fun & make some money!!!
