Brand Institute Review
Brand Institute sends out fair amount of paid surveys. When I first joined Brand Institute back in the 2006, most of their surveys were related to pharmaceutical products such as new drugs, in recent couple of years I have started receiving more general consumer product surveys from Brand Institute, which I like. Their surveys usually pay between $2 – $30. I have qualified surveys that paid between $2 and $10. They also have paid “BrandChat” where members contribute ideas for new product names in a chat room, and it’s very interesting.
Brand Institute also has very high paying surveys and focus groups opportunities, especially for health care professionals! So if you or someone you know work in the medical field (doctors, nurses or pharmacists), Brand Institute is a MUST sign on paid survey panel!!!
Following is a Brand Institute Survey Check payment (image, click to enlarge) I recently received for completing a $10 paid online survey.
1. You don’t have to provide your SS#, they will pay you without this information.
2. Brand Institute launched their VIP program around September 2009. As a VIP member, you can check available surveys for you by clicking the “Open Surveys” link at your account page (so you don’t have to wait for survey invite emails). Also VIP members get rewarded by referring new members. I think you have to be a “regular” member for at least six months before you can apply to “upgrade” to be the VIP member.
Update: Brand Institute has discontinued the VIP program.
3. You can choose to be paid by Check or Paypal, but please note that if you choose Paypal you can’t switch back to check again due to their recent policy change. Brand Institute is a very reputable and reliable company and they always pay me in a timely manner.
Brand Institute is a very legitimate paid survey site, they offer good payout for individuals that qualify and complete their online surveys, and Brand Institute especially is a great survey panel for health care professionals. I highly recommend Brand Institute survey panel!
UPDATE: I have’t received any surveys from Brand Institute since 2015.
