How does it work?
Through Valued Opinions you can tell companies, both big and small, what you think about the products and services that they offer. Market research provides a way for companies to find out what people like you truly think about a wide range of issues, from fashion to sports and even global warming. Valued Opinions conducts this research on behalf of companies and then rewards you for having your say.
You’ll be sent emails with a link to surveys that are relevant to you. All you need to do is click the link and complete the survey to be rewarded. The survey length will vary, but will usually take less than 15-20 minutes to complete. You will be advised of the estimated time it will take when you receive the survey link.
Each survey you complete earns you between $2 and $5 depending on length. In addition, you’ll receive $2 for each friend you refer who then completes a survey.
You can keep track of the surveys that you have completed and the money earned through your dashboard. And once your account reaches $20, you can start claiming gift cards from some of Australia’s favourite brands.
Valued Opinions currently has over 170,000 members and is one of the most popular survey sites in Australia. They value the community that they have developed and regularly acknowledge members that have stood out through the site’s Star Members leader board.
Members are given a chance to find out how previous surveys have helped shape product development and marketing, and they also have the opportunity to take part in product testing.
As well as the online site, Valued Opinions have a mobile app for your smartphone. Once you’ve signed up to Valued Opinions online, you will have the option to download the app and receive surveys directly to your mobile.
