Toluna - Good But Slow To Reward........
Member Name: silaurblue
Advantages: Large number of surveys, excellent contributers and community
Disadvantages: Slow to reward.
I have been using the Toluna Survey Site for about 8 weeks. There are a variety of ways on this site that you can earn points. Once you have earned 80000 points you can redeem these for a £15 Amazon voucher. Bear in mind it can take around 6 weeks for you to be rewarded for your survey opinions.
Profile: When you join Toluna, fill out all the 13 profile sections (Home and Family, Employment etc) and earn 100 points per completed profile.
Quick Votes: These are multiple choice questions asked by Toluna and earn you an immediate 15 points for answering. There are generally around 5 Quick Votes posted a day by Toluna. You can go through the old Quick Votes that have been posted in the previous few months. I increased my points by an additional 10000+ by doing this.
Surveys: Various surveys are suggested for you in your Survey Centre. The more up to date your profiles are the more relevant the surveys will be. Unlike other survey sites where you are only offered one survey a month, Toluna offers a wide variety of surveys. Like all survey site though be prepared to be regularly screened out of a number of these. The average point level for a survey is about 2000 points.The downside to Toluna is it is slow to reward points and I am only just starting to gain the majority of my points.
Polls/Topics/Battles: You can write your own polls where you can give multiple choice answers to gain other people's opinions. You can also post a topic which other people can comment on, or post a which is better battle. I have posted a couple of opinions, and was rewarded additional points as these were popular (around 1000 points), but you can't rely on these additional points. One of the advantages of Toluna as a community is it has a high standard of opinion posters who regularly contribute to the site.
Summary: If you aren't in a hurry this can be an interesting site to contribute to and earn a few pounds.
