Received an email from Gongos saying that GongosOnline is close and I am welcome to join Consumer Village community.
Following is the detail of the email:
This is a reminder to join Consumer Village. If you have already joined, please ignore this message.
You asked for it… More surveys and more opportunities – earn points each time you participate – earn more incentives – discuss topics of interest to you – communicate and interact with other respondents.
We listened… You are among the first to be invited to a new and unique research opportunity called Consumer Village. Consumer Village will replace the current GongosOnline panel which is closing. This transition will take place within the next few weeks.
As a member of Consumer Village, you will have the opportunity to participate in far more ways than the panel could offer. Not only will you be able to take more surveys, but also you can earn points every time. Points will be redeemable for amazon.com gift certificates.
You will also have the opportunity to constantly interact with members of this private online community. Members may engage in chats with thousands of other consumers – on current events, trends, products and services – or just about anything you want!
Your opinions will also make a difference in another very important way. Not only will you help leading manufacturers and Fortune 500 companies develop new products, but you will help raise money for charity. Gongos Research will match 5% of all points earned for donations on behalf of Consumer Village. We will let you know which organization the money is benefiting. So… the more you participate, the more you earn… and the more you contribute to those in need.
If you would like to join Consumer Village, please click on the link below. Remember, signing up is necessary if you wish to continue participating in Gongos Research activities, since Consumer Village will replace GongosOnline.
Thank you – we look forward to seeing you in Consumer Village!”
I signed up and was told I qualify to be a member of the Consumer Village community!
