Account Health

It is essential to Branded Surveys' partners that you consistently contribute high-quality survey responses. "High-quality" can be a complex concept so we created Account Health as an education system to help you identify if there are areas of improvement in your survey-taking habits. There are three levels of Account Health: Poor, Average and Excellent.

Follow these best practices to assure your Account Health standing remains Excellent!

  • Always keep your Profile up to date. After all, this is how we match you with the right surveys.
  • Be sure to respond to demographic questions honestly and consistently.
  • Fill out open-ended questions with thorough responses. Complete sentences are required!
  • Gibberish, foul language and irrelevant open-ended answers will negatively impact your account.
  • Take your time! Rushing through surveys will result as an invalid survey.
  • Pay attention and watch out for trap questions.
  • Do not copy/paste your responses.
  • Be authentic! Do not respond to all open-ended questions with the same answer.

We place a great deal of value on our panelist quality and participation. As such, all survey activities undergo review by our partners.

After reviewing your recent survey activity, we have found that your responses could use some improvement - which is why your Account Health appears as "Poor."

To ensure your account remains in good standing, please follow the guidelines below:


1. Answer profiling questions honestly & consistently 

  • Be sure your My Profile page is always up to date and accurate. After all, this is how we match you with surveys!
  • Maintain consistent answers across your Profile and throughout your survey responses. Before entering each survey, you may see a few reasons why you were matched with that particular survey (Example below). Once you enter the survey, our partner may ask some profile questions that correlate with the reasons that you just saw on our site, understand that they are looking for these same answers from you. If your answers are always honest & accurate, you should have little trouble further qualifying for the survey.


2. Provide thorough and complete open-ended answers

  • We understand that you may be busy! However, rushing through surveys will negatively impact your account - so take your time & provide thorough responses.
  • Always answer open-ended questions in complete sentences. One-word answers will be flagged as invalid which result in no points for taking that survey!
  • Be sure your response is relevant to the question that is asked. 
  • Gibberish and vulgar language will also result in no credit and a possible ban from future surveys. 
  • Provide authentic responses. Don't copy/paste your responses or respond to all open-ended questions with the same answer.


3. Review the examples below for valid & invalid open-ended responses.


The open-ended response below is valid because it is thorough, relevant/answers the question asked & uses complete sentences.

The open-ended response below is invalid because it is incomplete and does not answer the question. The response is not a complete sentence (one word long) and "good" is not a hobby.

Surveys

Exclusive Surveys are featured under "Extra Earning Opportunities" when you are eligible for these opportunities. Keep in mind that you may be offered several surveys in succession and will not be redirected back to Branded Surveys upon completion. Don't worry! You will still be paid out for each completed survey during your session.

Branded Surveys will match you endless survey opportunities based on the information you provide in your profile. We are continuously refreshing your survey queue with new surveys. Before entering the survey, you can check out the qualifications listed at the bottom of the Survey Start page to see how you were paired up with that particular survey. You may be asked to verify this information by our research partner. Be sure your answers are consistent with your Branded Surveys profile. If you need to make changes to your profile information, be sure to visit the My Profile page.

That depends on each unique survey. Most surveys may only be available for a limited time, and after the quota is met we cannot accept anymore responses.

Our research partners have specific quotas that state how many completed surveys they need. Once we reach that quota, that survey is no longer available. Sometimes this can happen within minutes of the survey becoming available. Not to worry, as you will always be routed to the next available survey opportunity! 

When our survey partners are looking for responses they typically look for a very specific demographic. 


Though we try our best to pre-qualify you for all surveys, there's always a possibility that you are deemed 'not a match' should you not fit the criteria our partners are looking for. 

To help prevent this we always recommend that you keep your profile as up to date as possible. You can update by visiting your profiler surveys here: 


All new surveys that match your profile will be emailed to the email address on record. They will also appear on your dashboard in separate tiles when you login. You will be able to see the duration and the point value of each survey opportunity. 


Keep in mind, you are matched with surveys that you are most likely to successfully complete - so be sure to always keep your profile up to date.

The surveys may only remain available for a limited time until the survey quota is met. Our research partners have specific quotas that state how many completed surveys they need. Once we reach that quota, the survey is no longer available. Sometimes this can happen within minutes of the survey becoming available.

In order to see surveys as they arrive or unsubscribe from getting survey invites via email, you may make modifications in your Preferences under "Email Schedule".

Most surveys are between 10-20 minutes. We'll always tell you the expected amount of time it will take to complete a survey before you begin. We track the average completion time and ensure that the estimations are as accurate as possible. Note - typically longer surveys offer you a larger payout.

We understand that sometimes issues can occur when taking surveys, and we want to ensure that you are properly compensated for your time.


If you do experience an issue with a survey in your history, you can report it by navigating to "My Points" located on the left side navigation menu. 

Scroll to the bottom of the page where you will see the "Report Issue" button.

Once selected, you will be directed to the Report Survey Issue page where you can navigate and select the "Report Issue" button next to the survey you wish to report. 

Remember, including detailed information such as screen shots are extremely helpful during the review process! 

Note, the "Report Issue" button will only appear next to a survey for 24 hours after attempted survey start.

When a survey invite goes out, it can attract more Branded Surveys Members than originally planned and you can receive an "OQ", or "Over Quota". Don't worry, when this happens you'll be routed to the next available match! 

Occasionally, a survey will be sent to you but may not be the best match for your profile. In this case you will get an NQ, or Not Qualified notification. We realize this can be frustrating at times, which is why you are often rewarded with 'NQ' points for trying! 

Each survey is assigned a unique three word phrase that is presented prior to beginning a survey called a Survey Code. Please take note of this phrase as it will help to identify the survey in your survey-taking history. 

If an error occurs while taking a survey, you can report the issue by clicking the Report Issue button located on the My Points page. Be sure to select the survey in which you encountered the issue and explain the problem in as much detail as possible. Attaching a screenshot of the error screen will assist us in identifying the survey issue more efficiently, allowing us to respond in a more timely, thorough manner.

Profile Surveys help our systems better match you to more qualifying surveys!

How Can I Participate?


Easy, just navigate to your Extra Earning Opportunities section on your Dashboard and you’ll be prompted to Profile Surveys one at a time. They’re also accessible at any time on your My Profile tab under Preferences. Simply treat them just as you would a normal survey and answer honestly and truthfully!

What's My Profile? 


Because our partners are constantly on the lookout for particular panelists to complete their surveys, we’ve broken these surveys down into the most popular categories to help match your profile to the most relevant survey opportunities available. That's what encompasses the "My Profile" page and therefore makes it imperative that you answer honestly and consistently when completing these and other surveys we match you with. Otherwise, it'll be nearly impossible for you to complete any surveys and therefore collect any earnings.

How Often Should I Update My Information?


Because life is fluid and always changing, we encourage you to update your profile frequently by simply clicking “Update Answers” on your My Profile page under each completed Profile Survey. New car, new job or a new house? All these warrant a profile update so be as diligent as possible when updating!
