First things first. If you haven’t completed your online profiles yet, you should do it immediately. Make sure you fill them out completely. If you have any questions, try contacting the site to clear them, so that you leave no room for error. Most people don’t understand how important their profiles are. The truth is that your profile directly impacts the survey invitations you get. If your profile isn’t complete, there’s a high chance you won’t get a lot of invites. This means you’ll make less money.
Survey sites rely on the info in your profile to match you with new survey opportunities. The site’s algorithms comb through profiles to find keywords that match the type of people the surveys need. If you didn’t take enough time to answer the profile questions and fill out your profile well, then you won’t be getting the invites you would actually qualify for.
Many survey forums have additional questionnaires that you can complete once you finish your profile. They aren’t mandatory, but it’s still in your best interest to fill them out. They’re usually called profile surveys or polls. Survey forums use your answers to specify your demographic into a narrow niche. This makes it easier for them to match you with appropriate surveys.
Make sure you answer the survey questions honestly since a lot of them are repeated in screener surveys to make sure you’re taking your time. If you’re flagged for being dishonest, you’ll be disqualified from taking the full survey and that’s no good.
