What is an online panel?
An online panel is a sample of people who have agreed to participate in surveys via the Internet. They serve as a frame for customers willing to give feedback about their experiences with a product or service. When an organization needs feedback, the online panel is drawn from the database to provide a solution.
When a sample is drawn from the database of a survey provider, the selection is often based on an interlocked set of criteria such as age, gender, and location in combination with other factors. Respondents who have filled out more personal information are likely to receive more survey opportunities being a direct match with their profile. So if you want to maximize your survey opportunities, make sure to fill out as much as possible when it comes to profiling questions.
Note that you have no guarantee of qualifying for a survey until you have answered the actual screening questions within the survey. This means you might get screened out at the beginning of the survey without earning any reward. This can be irritating but is generally unavoidable, given how most panel companies operate. If you experience being screened out late in the survey after answering many questions, we recommend that you take a screenshot of the screen out page and complain to customer service. Mistakes often happen, and panel companies are likely to pay the respondents if screening questions were erroneously inserted towards the end of the survey.
