Online Survey Referral Programs
Have some friends or family you’d like to recruit to take online surveys but want to be compensated for your efforts? Some panels offer a refer-a-friend program, where, by becoming a member of the panel and referring friends or family members, you can earn additional rewards.
How it Works
Become a member of the survey panels listed below and after logging into your account, look for a “refer-a-friend” section. Here, you will be provided with a unique url you may post on your website or blog which will track referrals that come through your link. You may also be able to e-mail your friends directly through your account, inviting them to join the panel.
- Never send out spam – e-mailing your friends and family about a survey panel is fine, but avoid e-mailing acquaintances or strangers, as you can get fully banned from a panel for sending out spam.
- Limit referrals to outside your household – although there are a handful of survey panels who allow each individual household member to have their own account, most don’t. When referring family members, ensure they don’t live in your home
- Post your referral link in your signature on forums (where allowed), and in your signature in e-mails
- Add banners to your website and blog to recruit strangers under you. Better yet, write about your personal experiences with a survey panel so that people can get a feel for what being a member is really like.
All the survey panels listed below are free to join, and are fully listed on SurveyPolice (simply click on their name).
