There are many great companies out there who offer online surveys but you may want to consider looking them up on Facebook and ‘liking’ their pages. Just a few companies that come to mind who have a Facebook presence are Opinion Outpost UK.

A click of a button to become a fan of a company on Facebook is easy enough – it only takes a second. This simple action however can translate to getting more out of survey taking than the average user.

Win More Contests – Many research companies hold facebook-only contests where users can win points and prizes, just for “liking” a status update or for making a comment on a survey panel’s facebook page. Your chances of winning this is greater than most contests due to fewer entries.

Discover Special Survey Opportunities – Sometimes when there’s a special online survey opportunity, companies will notify their facebook fans first of it. The only way you can be privy to this information is if you’re a fan.

Run into Trouble? Make it Public! – Have a gripe with a survey panel? Contact them via e-mail first with your concern. If it goes unanswered, try posting your inquiry on their facebook page. Not only is this method more likely to get their attention, but other people will see it too.

If Surveys Are New to You

On-line surveys can be a fun and lucrative way to gain prizes in cash, as stated previously. Some online surveys are done just to provide information to a company that you like. Other online survey companies will award a certain amount of points for each survey that you take. You can redeem or cash these points in for gift cards, or prizes such as makeup, electronics, magazine subscriptions and the like.

Other survey web sites out there can pay cash for a survey that you take. Many of these web sites do have certain stipulations; some of them are looking for participants of a certain age group. Others are looking for participants the shop at certain stores, while others are searching for participants that live in a certain part of the UK. Some surveys companies are not concerned with such things. They just want to know what the survey population cares about.
