I signed up with E-public when they had a Beenz offer. I like the idea of participating in those polls which are well known and e-public is run by MORI. For the first couple of months I recieved interesting surveys to complete and earned myself some beenz in the process. For the past few months I havn't heard a thing from them. Personally I enjoy completing these whether or not I recieve an incentive so I'm disappointed that they have gone so quiet. Recently I looked at the site and they do not seem to be recruiting either. Still its worth dropping by on the off chance that this changes if you like to be one of those people who actually helped influence the outcome of important surveys.
I love online surveys. People ask my opinion, I can slag off the companies and web sites that I don't like, I can waste half an hour at work. Is there no end to their uses? I was very happy to sign up to do questionnaires for MORI (which is who e-people are) - after all you kind of assume that you opinion will count for a bit more than a survey at whyaren'tyoubuyingmystuff.com (I just made that up) which is a tad biased towards finding out new ways of selling you stuff. I thought that I would be giving opinions about who I might vote for, what I thought of cars, is cheese good and so on. Useful kinds of things. What actually happened is that I filled in a few questionnaires that always seemed to be about travel web sites, and after that they stopped contacting me. Perhaps I don't visit travel web sites enough to satisfy them. I'm a bit disappointed, and hopefully they will start again - but for now I am happy to use dooyoo to vent my spleen. I did get a handful of beenz for my troubles, so all was not wasted, however I have serious doubts that I will ever earn enough beenz to get anything worthwhile. I wouldn't try and register with them just for this. It's just a bit of fun.
Okay, xmillion will tell you what he knows. Epublic is the online face of the well known MORI polling organisation. Xmillion surmises that the reason why this site has been listed is that at one time epublic were offering beenz (*) to induce people to sign up and complete the odd survey. (* see beenz opinions listed if you don't know what these little devils are) Xmillion knows this because this is exactly what he did. He received 300 beenz (approx £1) for signing up in January of this year, and has since received invitations to particpate in a further five surveys each worth 400 beenz a time. Although he would point out the last one was in June, and he hasn't heard a peep from them in the last couple of months. Xmillion has checked on beenz.com and epublic is no longer listed as an "offer". Neither does the epublic website itself seem to have any obvious offer of any inducement. Xmillion therefore assumes that they are currently not recruiting, and would therefore advise that this seems to be a dead duck at the moment. (Unless someone else knows better) Which is a shame, because otherwise xmillion would be happy to recommend it.(Randomly clicking a few radio buttons in response to a few questions in return for money being xmillion's idea of fun.)
