Qualifying for an online survey

When you become a member of Opinion Outpost we will ask some questions to understand a little more about you. The more information that we have means we can invite you to take part in surveys that most suit you.

What is a "screen out" during a survey?

Companies who conduct market research are usually looking for the specific opinions of a very set group of people - for example, only those who already own their brand or product. If we don’t already know this information we will ask a few questions at the start of a survey to make sure that it is relevant to you. If it isn't you may be 'screened out' or get a message that you haven't qualified for the survey on this occasion.

Our online surveys vary every day, depending on what our clients would like opinions on, and we are constantly offering new surveys and online polls to give you the opportunity to be rewarded for your valued opinions.

During your initial registration the more information that you can supply us the more accurately we can match you with each survey. Ensuring your online profile is current will also mean we can send you the surveys that best suit you. If you would prefer not to answer some of the questions this may mean that we are unable to match you with as many surveys. We promise never to share your personal information with anyone - you will always be anonymous to our clients - but the more that we know about you the better we are at inviting you to take part in surveys that will be of interest.

Any data from uncompleted surveys is discarded and won't be used in the final online poll results. We know that your time is precious, and we want to make the most of your opinions. Remember, even if you don't qualify for a certain online survey you will still be given a prize draw entry for your efforts - so you can be in with a chance of winning £5,000 in our Quarterly Cash Prize Draw!
