Q: I am a publisher registered both with CJ and Linkshare. I have noticed there are dozens of websites who are giving users rewards for completing surveys etc. I was wondering if you knew any advertisers which offer this facility through CJ, Linkshare or any other program. It would be great to get paid to offer users in a multi-user website to complete surveys locally (in our user-environment) and reward them accordingly.
A: As you mentioned, there are lots of survey related sites out there. They range from the reputable to the shady, with lots in between.
Here are some of the companies, with affiliate programs, I have heard about most often:
- Greenfield Online
- Lightspeed Research
For what it’s worth, LightSpeed Research has ranked in the Top 10 Affiliate Programs list for AffiliateTip.com a number of times this year.
As far as incentivizing people to complete the surveys (providing them with rewards), be sure this is acceptable with each affiliate program before doing it.
Just because you see somebody else doing it doesn’t mean it’s permitted by the affiliate program. It’s always best to review their affiliate agreement and/or ask the affiliate manager questions.
