      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      One of the best survey sites I feel.

      I first came across global test market when I was researching how to make money online (just like how I found out about dooyoo!). We all have them times when we would like a bit of extra cash, and I thought doing surveys for money sounded pretty easy! So after researching that global test market were actually a reliable company and not some kind of scam I decided to sign up. When you first sign up to global test market you will have to do some of the profile surveys, these are basically surveys you do so that global test market know more about you and so they can send you the right surveys to match you. Global test market will email you when there is a survey available for you to take. The email will tell you things such as roughly how many market points you will be rewarded with for taking the survey. I bet you're wondering what market points are? Well they are points you get for taking part in surveys, they vary from how long the surveys are, but the most common market points that I get rewarded with are between 30-35 for this surveys will mostly be around 20 minutes long, however before you take the survey it will tell you how long it should take to complete the survey. Once you reach 1000 market points you can then redeem your market points. 1000 points will give you £30. Since joining around a year ago I have made £90. However I reckon I could have made more if I had completed more surveys, however I am happy with how much I have made, it may not seem a lot to everyone but every little helps! And I find that the money I get from survey sites I like to spend on a few treats such as clothes and makeup. When you redeem your market points global test market will send you a cheque. It takes a while for you to receive the cheque, it's between 6-8 weeks, but one time I think it came a bit earlier than this. When you take a survey you have to answer a few basic questions such as your age and gender to see if you are the right person that they are looking for, for taking the survey. If you are not the right person then you will be screened out, and you won't be able to take the survey. However if you are screened out then you are entered into 'sweepstakes' which is where you have the chance to win some cash! I have never personally won though. I find that most of the times I am the right person to take the survey however I do get screened out quite a bit sometimes, but I don't think this can be helped. The surveys vary from different topics from deodorants to the lottery! You can really be asked about anything. Some surveys that I find come up a lot are film surveys. These are my favorite kind of surveys, often a trailer for a film will be played and you answer questions about what your opinions are about the film, it's actually quite fun! However you can get the boring surveys but earning cash is not always fun! I find global test market is really one of the best survey sites around, and I am so glad I found it. I am going to try to complete more surveys so that I can continue to earn cash with this reliable survey site. Although there are a few small disadvantages, I have to give this company 5 starts as it really is one of the best survey sites out there.

        Not recommended as a 'get rich quick' hobby.

        Did you know that you can make money from completing online surveys? I didn't, but when perusing Martin's Money Tips on the online MoneySavingExpert, GlobalTestMarket was one of the recommended survey sites; consequently, it was one of three that I joined. I joined because I enjoy completing surveys and I thought I would be able to make some pocket-money at the same time. However, although I have received at least one survey, (often two) daily over the past month, I have only earned just over 100 points so far. (1000 points are needed for a cash reward of the equivalent of $50 US dollars. You apply once reaching the required minimum, and they send you a cheque which their website states can take up to 6 - 8 weeks to arrive.) When you first register with GlobalTestMarket, you complete lengthy personal profiles which they use to select you for up-coming surveys - so I would prefer that they don't send me a survey unless they think I am eligible because on many occasions I am 'screened out' after a few minutes due to not meeting their profile requirements. I do understand that this is very important for the retailers, but it does not always come up quickly enough and I find that I waste quite a lot of time because of this procedure. If this happens, you get entered into their 'draw', but today I looked at the list of winners, and they were almost all in the US. Again, this may reflect the number of people who participate, but it was more than a little disappointing to see. The email message you receive about a new survey from GlobalTestMarket gives an indication of how long it will take to complete - often up to 30 minutes. You can choose to take it or not, but are warned that if you don't answer quickly you are less likely to be chosen for further surveys. When I am accepted for a survey, I conscientiously complete it to the best of my ability, but on many occasions I find that I have spent far longer on it than their suggestion. I wonder if I am being too meticulous or if other people are just ticking boxes without reading and being completely honest in their answers. It has taken me hours so far to build my points totalling just over 100 - is it really worth the effort? I am rapidly becoming disillusioned with this site, and although to-date I am still completing the surveys (where not screened-out) I feel I could be making more money other ways. I would not recommend this to my friends and family, and would suggest that only someone who spends a lot of time on the computer and who has a lot of time to spare applies to join, because in my opinion, you will not get rich doing this.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great survey site for earning a few extra pounds

          GlobalTestMarket is one of the few survey websites im a member of. I've been member of Globaltestmarket for about 7-8 months now and thought it was about time I wrote a review on what globaltestmarket have offer. GlobalTestMarket is an American survey site that sends you checks for completing surveys. They ask people from all around the world to complete surveys about anything form going to the cinema to buying electronics. >>>>>>>How did I sign up<<<<<<< I signed up to GlobalTestMarket by going on there website (www.globaltestmarket.com) and clicking on join at the top of there website. Next I filled in the information that they asked for (Date of birth, email, name and address) and clicked on submit. Once I clicked submit globaltestmarket sent a message with a link to my email account to confirm my globaltestmarket account. Once I clicked on the link my globaltestmarket account was up and running and was ready to recieve surveys. On your account there will be profile surveys that you can complete. You do not get rewarded for completing these surveys but if you complete them it can lead to more survey invites. >>>>>>>How do I participate in surveys<<<<<<< To participate in surveys you need to be invited to them by Globaltestmarket. There are two ways you can find out if you've been invited to take a survey 1. Check your email account or 2. login in to your account on there website. I usually check my email 1 to 2 times a day to see if I have been invited to any surveys. Sometimes I get 1 survey invite in 2 days and sometimes I get invited to take part in 5 surveys in 1 day. Even though I get lots of surveys invites I often get screened out as I don't match the criteria needed to take part. Out of all the surveys I've been invited to take part in i've probly only qualifed to complete a quatre of them. >>>>>>>What do I get for completing a survey<<<<<<< For fully completing a survey you will receive market points or sweepstakes. Marketpoints are what you want as when you get to a 1000 you can redeem them for a check of $50 which is around £31. The points you get rewarded depends on how long the surveys is. 5 to 10mins = 15 marketpoints 10 to 20mins = 35 marketpoints 20 to 25mins = 40 marketpoints Over 25mins = 60 marketpoints Sweepstakes are entries into weekly and monthly competitions. I think the weekly competition is $300 and the monthly one is something around a $1000. You will recieve one sweepstake entry into each of these competitions if you get screened out of a survey. Some surveys will offer you 3 sweepstakes into each competition instead of marketpoints. I've been a member for 7-8 months and have never won in there competitions. When recieving survey invites I always complete the ones that offer me market points first. I only complete sweepstake surveys if there are no market points surveys for me to take part in. >>>>>>>What can I use my marketpoints on<<<<<<< Market points can be used for checks. When you reach 1000 marketpoints you can redeem them for checks in your currency. On there website it says 1000 marketpoints are worth $50 and in pounds that is around £31. To redeem a 1000 points all you have to do is login to your account on there website and click on rewards. Next click on redeem and check your address details are correct. A few minutes later globaltestmarket will send you message to tell you your check is on its way. It usually takes me 2 to 3 months to reach 1000 market points. Checks usually take 6 to 8 weeks to be delivered to the UK as its being sent from Canada. I have recieved two checks that were worth £31 each and they took 6 weeks to be delivered. >>>>>>>Do globaltestmarket invite you to take part in anything over than surveys<<<<<<< Yes they do, apparently you can be invited to focus groups and product testing but you rarely get invited to any of these. I have never been invited to a focus group but I have been invited to test a product once. I was invited to test a product after completing a survey about alcohol and if I agreed to take part I would recieve a bonus 1000 marketpoints. I jumped at the chance and agreed and was told I would receive the product in 2 weeks. 2 weeks later I received the product in a box and 2 pieces of paper telling my what I had to do to recieve my marketpoints. It basicly said record a 5 min video of yourself drinking the product and giving your opinion of it. A few days after sending my video I recieved a survey asking me what I thought of the product. Once I completed the survey I was told my bonus 1000 marketpoints would be added to my account in the next 28 days. (I completed the survey mid november). After a month and a half I never recieved my bonus marketpoints and was a little dissapointed but the product was free to test so there was 1 or 2 positives. Then out of nowhere I recieved a bonus 1000 marketpoints a few days ago. I checked my marketpoints history and I had been awarded 1000 points for a related survey so Im guessing that was a late payment from the product testing. >>>>>>>Overall<<<<<<< Overall I think globaltestmarket is one of the best surveys sites you can join that sends you checks not vouchers. Its easy to sign up and use there website, you get lots of surveys invites and if your lucky you may get invited to test a product for some bonus marketpoints. The negatives of the site are you get screened out of surveys alot and checks take 6 to 8 weeks to be delivered but the positives overcome the negatives. This is a survey site I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to make a few extra pounds.

            a decent survey company

            I have recently started using this company and have mixed feeling about them. Screening out- This is the main problem with this company, I have tried to enter about 70 surveys and have so far only been able to take part in three. You have to answer 2 or 3 questions before you know if you've qualified so this can become time consuming and frustrating, if you do not qualify you dont get any points but you do get entered into a prize draw to win a large amount of money, however the odds of you winning are very low but I guess its worth a try. Rewards- You get around 35 points for every full survey you complete, when you have 1000 points you can get a cheque for $50, so I would say the rewrads are fair however if you need to qualify for a lot of surveys before you reach this amount and it could take a lot of time. Another thing to be aware of is if you are inactive for 12months or have not used your points after 3years you will lose them. They will not convert your money to other currencys it has to be in dollars. Type of surveys- The surveys really do vary and have difefrent formats, they usually say they will take around 20minutes to complete however I would say they are normally shorter than this. If you click random answers and speed through the survey they will notice and close your account and you will lose all of your points so I wouldnt recommend you do this. The surveys will normally be multiple choice answers, however they soemtimes ask you to write a small amount. Ease of use- The website is easy to use and very straight forward, they will email you when surveys are available so theres no need to keep checking their website. You can however log in to see how many points you've got and what surveys you have completed. When you have got 1000 points you need to ask to redeem them, they will not just send you the cheque. Also dont store up loads of points on their website because they are not like a bank, if they close down you will lose them all. If you are trying to make a few extra pound then give it a go however dont quit your day job. I would also recommend you sign up to a lot of survey companies to get decent rewards.

              Don't let the '.com' fool you; globaltestmarket is one of the most reliable survey sites out there.

              Being a stereotypically poor student, I have looked to internet survey sites to provide a source of extra income. I joined globaltestmarket.com upon my sister's recommendation around a year ago. She had joined the site three years ago and had gotten quite a few payments despite being a sixth form student who lived at home. Seeing that it worked for her I decided to join up before leaving for university so I could get surveys to do in my spare time. Signing up to globaltestmarket.com is pretty simple. You fill in an online form with your personal details including a password to login to the site, and then activate the account through your email. After doing that and filling in the typical profile surveys to "tailor" the money-making ones for you. The surveys are sent to your email and you click on the link through those to open that survey straight away (although they can also be accessed by logging into your account). Each survey is worth a different amount of "Marketpoints", anything from 15-100. Some surveys will only net you Prize Draw entries, which I never bother with. The emailed survey invites don't tell you how long a survey takes, though generally the more points on offer the longer the survey (this is not always the case). Once you reach 1000 Marketpoints you can cash out for a $50 cheque, however this will be converted to British currency (i.e. about £30) before it is sent off. I think this is a very good payout for a survey site especially since currently the British pound is weak to the US Dollar. Therefore you aren't losing out too much in the exchange rate for once. Surveys are very frequent and I usually get 1-2 a day, with reminders for those I haven't done sent a few days afterwards. Some of them do screen me out after a few questions but it's generally quite quick for the survey to figure out who is not in the right demographic. Surveys can cover a variety of topics, from cosmetics to television and even some product testing. Six months after joining globaltestmarket.com I was able to cash out my first cheque which, considering I'm not the typical demographic for most surveys (aged under 21, student, no children etc) is very fast. The cheques do take a while to arrive in the post (6-8 weeks the site claims; my first cheque came in 5 weeks) but this is understandable given they are being delivered from the United States. Overall I fully recommended globaltestmarket.com for those who like survey sites. The surveys I receive are very varied and the payout is good for the time spent. It's quick to join and you will start getting surveys immediately, so be sure to check it out!

                One of my favourite market research websites

                I just Global Test Market quite some time ago now and did a couple of surveys but I hadn't really heard that much about them and I wasn't sure if they were worth sticking with or not. At the time I was looking for ways to make some extra cash and I joined a number of websites (including Dooyoo, but this is a more recent discovery!) that all seemed to have something to offer that interested me. I stuck with a number of websites that seemed to send out the most surveys and offer the best rewards etc and they have worked really well for me. However every so often I have an inquisitive moment and try to look for other websites that might be able to help me out. While browsing Dooyoo I noticed a lot of people praising Global Test Market and as they were still emailing me with surveys quite frequently I thought perhaps I should give them another try. Global Test Market is an American based survey website (one of the reasons I had my reservations as I wasn't sure if it was legit) which allows people from the U.K. to sign up and participate too. Obviously, it is involved in market research and really it is the same as most other websites - I can't think of anything that really makes it stand out from the crowd. However compared to other websites, the volume of surveys that are sent out via this website is really impressive - I receive around 2 per day on average, sometimes I will receive up to 5 and other days I will only receive 1. How it works is that basically you answer survey questions then you will receive market points which is the way Global Test Market does it, similarly to Dooyoo miles in concept. Once you have reached 1000 you are eligible to redeem them for $50 which works out at around £30 odd. For most surveys you will receive between 30 -40 market points however I think some surveys do offer more points but since I have only just started again recently with this website I am yet to have a survey which offers more than 40 market points for a reward. Most surveys I would say on average take about 20 minutes to complete, most of which are quite fun to do however like all survey websites they can be tedious at times but lets be honest, its hardly difficult work is it?! I have read other people reviews on Dooyoo saying how they answer quite a few questions to find they have been screened out of that particular survey. I have experienced this but it is quite rare as I find it is more frequent on other websites and although it can be annoying it isn't usually very time consuming to answer a few questions before being screened out anyway. It is really easy to navigate around the website and I find it really user friendly. The predominant dark blue colour isn't the best but it is still easy to use. The sign up process is free and simple with just some details required and you might have to do some personal surveys but they don't take long and give you more chance of being invited to mor surveys. You will notice there is a members area where you can check your amount of points, your details and available surveys. Every time you are invited to a new survey you will be notified via email which is really useful just incase you forget to check your account which I sometimes do! In the email there will be a particular survey code which you can refer back to and go straight to the survey by logging into your account or you can simply click on the link in the email which will take you directly to the survey page. You may find if you leave it quite a long time between receiving the email and attempting to do the survey (I'm talking days here) that it would've reached its targeted number of participants so your views won't be needed for that particular survey so my advice would be to go to the survey asap after receiving the email. I am really pleased that I have gone back to this website as i only rejoined about 4 weeks ago about I already have over 500 points which I really didn't expect and I was really suprised when I checked my points to see that they had added up so quickly. Compared to other survey websites their threshold to withdraw is quite low which means you can get money pretty much as often as you like instead of having to wait to reach a ridiculously high amount. I have read complaints about the cheques taking a long time to arrive in the post however at the end of the day they are coming from America and as long as they arrive I don't mind if they take 6-8 weeks to come to my door. All in all this is definitely one of my favourite survey websites now and I can't wait to receive more surveys which equals more points and more money woo! I would definitely recommend this website as although it won't replace a full time job (obviously) it will certainly give you a little bit of extra cash to treat yourself with!

                  Disadvantages

                  A really successful way for people like you and me to make money

                  I stumbled upon Global Test Market when I was searching for ways to make money online - so far all I've found are review and survey sites (comments on anymore ways of earning online are highly appreciated!). Out of all of the survey sites I have found, this is probably second best (Survey Network being just a bit better). It was founded in 1999 and has members covering 49 countries around the world. It's free to sign up to and you get email updates if there are surveys which match your profile, this is really good if you aren't always checking if there are surveys for you to do, but do check your e-mails regularly. It's even better foR anyone with a smartphone - you can get your phone to vibrate when you have an e-mail and it may well be from GTM! Surveys are emailed to me almost daily, today I haven't yet had an email, other days I get three or four. These reward you with between 5 and 40 points on average, although the most I have been offered is 70, unfortunately I screened out a few questions into the survey. Yes, screening out happens often on Global Test Market (GTM). Usually I'm asked 4 or 5 questions and then I'm screened out, other times even before the survey starts it tells me I've sceened out, and it still gives me a sweepstakes entry for applying to fill out the survey which is great! The lengths of the surveys vary - 20/25 minutes is my average, but they range from 5 to over 40 minutes, the longest I've seen is an hour and five minutes with a reward of 40 points - I didn't bother with it. The subjects of the surveys I have done are vast and varied, most are interesting, my favourites are the ones based on upcoming films. I recently had to choose what I liked about posters for a certain film due for release soon (I cannot disclose any more information on the film) and what I would take out of the poster. Other times I've been granted the privilege of being able to watch draft trailers which haven't even been released to the cinema yet, and I've had to say what I like and dislike. It's going to be interesting seeing the trailers and posters nearer to the release date of the films, I'd like to see what my opinon led to... Other subjects include cars, finance, groceries, supermarkets, electrical products, sports and video games. I find the surveys on finance and supermarkets really boring and I've found them to be the longer surveys, another subject that I don't favour is the electrical products subject. Although it's cool being one of few who know about new prototypes and products in development! The reward system is simple - earn 1000 points and you've got yourself a lovely 50 dollars (equivalent to around 30 British pounds). Broken down into a smaller and simpler way of thinking about your points and what they equal: 20 points = 1 dollar. Therefore for every point you earn, you have earned 5 cents. To request a payout you must have at least 1000 points though. So it's no use thinking "Ooooh I've made 18 dollars in two days!" because you still haven't secured it, you have to reach 1000. I think this is a really good reward system, and it's very generous in my opinion, compared with, for example, Toluna, where it takes absolutely ages to earn 80000 points which equates to a measly 15 pounds Amazon voucher. On GTM you're getting double! And it's real cash for you to spend wherever you want! One downside is the referral program - yes, of course you can make referrals, make as many as you want, but you get diddlysquit for each one. I think GTM is working on some form of reward for referrals, but as for now you get nothing. (The moral of this paragraph is build up your contacts and refer once there's a reward for it!) The payment is fast, unlike other sites such as Toluna and Survey Network, and I received payment within 2 weeks of redeeming. The sweepstakes, I believe, is a waste of time. I have not yet won anything and have been on GTM a considerable amount of time. There are short surveys, usually 5 to 15 minutes long, which reward you with sweepstakes entries but no points, these I don't bother with, I advise you not to either. Just stick to racking up the points, you'll be redeeming for cash in no time. I'm on 330 at the moment, and it's been 3 weeks since I redeemed my first 1000 - which took a bit longer to get. That's about it, overall, in my opinion, I would say this is a really great site and it's really easy and quick for you to make some top dollar on here. The only problems are late screen outs and a referral program with no reward. Hopefully this will chnage soon though! I recommend this site to anyone who has a bit of free time on their hands and would think it a good diea to spend it earning some extra money.

                    Get paid in cash for offering your opinions on movies, restaurants and cars

                    Global Test Market is an online survey website which pays you in cash once you have reached your threshold. This American based company founded in 1999 is one of the worlds leading providers of online market research that has members in 49 different countries across the world. It's free to join as all good survey sites should be. The surveys that you complete will directly influence the products and services that you use each day. The topics of the surveys are mostly interesting and involve finding our your opinions about current movies, restaurants, automobiles, consumer products and current events. Sometimes you get the opportunity to view movie trailers before they have even been released and you get to suggest what should be left in or deleted, pretty exciting when you then see it begin shown at the cinema. An interesting one I completed yesterday was sent by Sony asking to rate an artists music that they wanted to sign and helping to choose his first album cover. It's also great when you recieve a survey about a company that has given you back service, giving you the change to vent and likewise to praise a company that has made you happy. That said about 20% of the surveys are incredibly boring, usually the ones involving electronic devices. As a member of Global Test Market you will receive invitations that are sent to your email account asking you to take part in surveys that are deemed relevant to you. For each survey you are typically rewarded between 15 and 40 points depending on the length of the survey or how urgently they need the results, although occasionally, you will get more. Before you begin, the invitation will tell you how long the survey should take to complete so that you can decide whether you have the time to complete it. They usually take between 10 minutes and 40 minutes. You should receive about one survey a day although sometimes you can receive more. If you keep your profile updated, you should start to receive more. Occasionally you will receive invitations to be entered into a sweepstake as a reward for completing a survey. It's kind of like being entered into a prize draw where you win money. I don't bother to complete this as I always assume the chances of wining are slim and therefore not worth the time but I may be wrong. Once you achieve your goal of 1000 points you will get send a cheque to the value of 50 US Dollars. It can take up to 6-8 weeks as the cheque is coming from America. The amount you receive in British Pounds may vary slightly due to the exchange rate but when I received my cheque it was for £31. It can take a considerable amount of time to reach your goal. The first time it took me a year, however I have just reached my second target in 3 months this time and I am currently waiting for my second cheque. This is due to the fact that as my circumstances have changed I am able to complete more surveys during the day before the quota is filled. As with valued opinions, you may start tearing your hair out due to the amount of times that you will be screened out. If you don't complete it relatively soon after you have received the invitation, you may as well leave it untouched. Even if they have filled the quota, they will still allow you to complete a few minutes of the survey before they tell you that you are screened out which can be extremely frustrating. If you are screened out, they do give you entries into a prize draw but after a year and a half, I've never won anything. All in all, this is not a quick fix survey site. It takes time and you will be screened regularly. However if you have time to spare and plenty of patience, then it's worth plugging away with this site because you will earn money. Particularly if you at home during the day, need the extra money and can complete them immediately after you receive them.

                      Don't bother with this one

                      Global Test Market is pretty much the same as all other survey sites. You need to register, fill in some profile information and then get sent emails with survey invitations. They pay in points and once you have 1,000 points, you can get paid. It's an American site so at the moment, this equates to $50 - so, depending on exchange rates, about £25. They send you this by cheque, whcih can take about six weeks. The surveys are generally consumer-based ones, the usual kind of things - about electronics, cosemetics and so on. I signed up to Global Test Market in about October 2009 and my current points balance is 695. I think that probably says it all, but I'll elaborate further. The surveys are certainly regular - at least a couple a week - but they are quite long, at least 15 minutes and you often spend five minutes answering quite a few questions only to get screened out and end up with nothing at all. Points vary - anything from an entry into a prize draw (this seem to becoming more frequent) to 100 points, but usually they are around the 40 points mark. Having signed up to this and being at 695 points, I intend to cling onto the bitter end and get my 1,000 points. After that, I'm not bothering with this anymore. The surveys are too long for too little reward, the screening out drives me mad and I am still not anywhere near payout, despite the best part of a year filling in surveys. There are much better sites out there in my opinion, but like all sites, some people will find they get a better return of investment than others, depending on their 'profile' - age, income etc. For me though (and I'm 27, live in the north-west and have no kids - just so you know!) it's a waste of time.

                        This site is a good way to get extra money.

                        I joined global test market about a month ago after seeing a link on money saving expert. It is relatively easy to join, however it does take quite a while to fill in all your profie surveys(giving information about yourself). Global test market is an american site however it will send cheques to the UK, but I believe they take quite a while to come. Global Test Market will send you surveys, each worth about 30 market points. 30 Market points is equivelent to about £1. Global test market is good as the surveys are very regular - about 3 everyday sometimes more. However the annoying thing is that often you can begin to fill in the survey and you get screened out. when you do get screened out you get entered into a prize draw but I think the odds of winning the draws are very low. Each survey takes about 15-20 minutes to complete, often they do get a bit boring but the reward is fair. Most of the surveys I recieve are about movies which are quite interesting, as you get to watch a movie trailer and comment on it. I have been a member for about a month now and have got 130 market points - you can redeem your points as soon as you reach 1000. I will note that I am probaly not the greatest candidate for recieving surveys - I am a student so dont have a job, a house or a car. So I am not suprised to be screened out of quite a lot of surveys. Overall I would recommend this site - most people would be more eligible for a lot more surveys than me so it is a good way to earn extra money!

                        Get rewarded for giving your opinion

                        Globaltestmarket is a site which rewards you by giving your opinion on certain products, services, films, etc. I first joined this site about a year ago and ever since, have redeemed quite a bit of money. Every survey which you complete, you get rewarded for either in the form of points, or with entries into the prize draws. Each survey completed usually gets you around 15 - 65 points, depending on the length of the survey. Once you have acculated 1000 points, you can then redeem your points for money, which will be sent to you in the form of a cheque. 1000 points is equivalent to $50. However, they pay you the equivalent to this amount earned in your local currency. I recommend this site to anyone who has a bit of spare time on their hands. It can take a while to reach the 1000 point threshold, but once done, it feels great and worth the while once you receive your cheque in the post. It usually takes about 4 - 6 weeks to receive your cheque once requested. The site is very user-friendly and very easy to naviaget your way around. Every so often, they have a prize draw where you stand the chance of winning $5000 or less. I am yet to win on any of these prize draws! Globaltestmarket is a site which many people do surveys on throughout the world, and their main office is based in Canada. Registration is very easy and straight forward, and you can be a member in just a few minutes after entering in your details. I have not yet had a problem with this site and recommend it is worth giving it a try.

                        Disadvantages

                        One of the best online survey providers

                        In these difficult economic times completing surveys online is a great way of improving your income and Globaltestmarket I feel is one of the best websites to try and do this. Registration is simple and once done you are given the opportunity to update your profile surveys on the topics basic, household, travel, employment, financial, technology, medical and vehicle which helps to distinguish which surveys will be most relevant for you to complete. Survey invitiations are sent to you by e-mail on a regular basis, I must receive at least one a day on average and then there is an easy link to follow and answer the questions. More often than not the subjects can be fairly repetitive but recently I have been asked for example to give my opinions on new musicians which made a pleasant change. A survey can take at most 20 minutes on average to finish and will reward you with typically 30-40 marketpoints which are usually credited to your account balance immediately. Once you have accumulated 1000 points these can be redeemed for 50 US Dollars as this is an American site. It takes a while for your cheque to arrive in the post but I have received 3 so far for an average of £30 sterling with no problems. I think it is brilliant that you are rewarded with a cheque as often on these type of sites you are given vouchers, a real stand out feature. On occasion you will be offered a survey which if you complete you will receive entries in to the daily and monthly sweepstakes draw, I have never won anything but there are pictures and testimonials on the site of those who have so I can only hope. As online survey providers go this is surely one of the best.

                          See review

                          Urgh, Global Test Market. I have just attempted 5 surveys, using about half an hours of my time and have been screened out of every single one after giving them a very large amount of information without reward. Global Test Market is an online survey site which gives rewards called Market Points which you collect and redeem for something, I wouldn't know what haven't got that far yet, I cannot be bothered doing any more surveys I am totally sick of this website now!!! You sign up to the website and you receive an email to let you know when a new survey is available for you to take and what the 'reward' is for it. You click on the link and it takes you straight to the survey or a survey loading page, where you answer some general questions about yourself then it goes onto its main subject, if you haven't been kicked off because you are supposedly ineligible to take the survey. This can happen sometimes 10 minutes into filling out loads of pages of personal information and sometimes will take you to another survey available to you or will just give you one prize draw entry. You have to collect a 1000 market points in order to do anything with them, currently I am on 365 but at the end of my tether with the site and am not really prepared to do anymore. You will see your points balance upon logging on to the website. Most surveys are for 'sweepstakes entry' or 20-40 market points and are all very long surveys. Far longer than some of the other survey websites have to offer, and because you have to get to 1000 points you are looking at 45 ish surveyd which you will be lucky to qualify for, and it will probably take about 2 years to acheive given the amount of surveys that reject you - I wouldn't mind but am sick of spending ages doing one then it screen you out, it's a load of rubbish. Valued opinions and lightspeed are far superior, pay out a lot more and are far more reliable with much better surveys to be had. I really wouldn't bother with this one, looks like other people have had more luck than I have so maybe it is not all bad but not one for me whatsoever, a big thumbs down!!

                            Highly recommend joining this site if you have not done so already

                            Global Test Market is an American website which you can earn money from by completing online surveys. I joined global test market around 8 weeks ago and have already made approximately £56. In order to recieve a cheque, you must reach a minimum of 1000 points. For every 1000 points, you will recieve a cheque of around £28.35. Most surveys will be worth around 30-40 points, however I have recieved one survey worth 70 points. Global test market will email you once a new survey has become available for you. In the email, they will state how many points you will recieve for the survey and approximately how long the survey will take to complete. Sometimes they do not offer points and simply offer "sweepstakes entry" which is an entry into a prize draw. I would not recommend completing these surveys as you do not recieve points for them and one of them took me 18 minutes to complete. Some of the surveys which I have recieved from the site are interesting, however most of them are boring. The surveys can become extremely annoying and repetitive. The points generally build up fairly quickly and are credited to your account immediately after you complete the survey. I am currently awaiting a cheque from global test market and the previous cheque took 3 weeks to arrive. This is generally how long it will take for cheques to arrive, as the company is based in America. You can join global test market via their website. It is not invite only so everyone can join. The sign up process is straight forward and they will ask basic questions such as age, address, contact number etc. There are only 2 ways to earn points on the site, by participating in surveys and recommending a friend to the website. If you are not a member of the website, I would highly recommend joining. After earning £56 in just over 2 months, I have not been disappointed with the site. It is a great way to earn a bit of extra cash, however as with all survey sites, it requires a bit of patience. Thanks for reading, Becka x I am also a member of ipsos, ciao survey, lightspeed and valued opinions. If anyone could recommend any other sites in the comments, it would be much appreciated. :)

                              Use to be my favourite survey site - more surveys and it will be again!

                              Global Test Market used to be my favourite survey site as I got the most frequent survey invitations from them and so received the most payouts from them over any other survey site. However, I seem to hardly get any survey invitations from them anymore and out of the ones that I do get I end up being screened out of most of them. The surveys that I do take though are pretty interesting and I often receive quite a few movie surveys from them where I have to watch a trailer of an upcoming film and then give my opinions on it. It's quite exciting being able to view a trailer before anyone's even heard of the film - I did a survey on Avatar months before it came out and none of my friends knew anything about the film! It's also quite nice being able to say that you contributed (even if only a very small bit) to the making of the trailer! Some of their surveys are quite lengthy and you're not told how long it will take before you start, but they're generally pretty interesting and fun to take so I don't often complain about this. Most surveys reward you with between 35-45 points depending on how long the survey will take and these points are then converted into cash. Each marketpoint is equal to 0.05 US cents so the reward for giving your opinion is great. When you have reached 1000 marketpoints you can request a cheque for $50 which is sent to you in your local currency. The only pain is that cheques take 6-8 weeks to be delivered so by the time I've received it I've forgotten what it's actually for. I do like this survey site as their surveys are usually fun to take and the rewards are generous but recently I haven't been given the chance to take many which is the only reason why I haven't given it 5 stars.
