Technology Advisory Board used to pay members cash via check on a survey-by-survey basis. They didn’t send surveys often, about 2 – 3 surveys a year, but they pay very well, at least $5 – $15. Their surveys are all technology related and quite interesting. If you are tech professional, usually it’s not difficult to quality for their surveys and their surveys require reasonable amount of time to complete. Since joining and before they converting to the point system, I have taken 2 – 3 surveys that paid me between $10 and $15 They send out payment check very promptly.
Recently (Early 2013) Technology Advisory Board changed their reward system. Like American Consumer Opinion, they are now using a Point system. Member earn points for every survey including the short screeners (usually 15 – 40 points) and points convert to cash. I think this is a positive change and it will greatly increase the survey response rate since members feel their time and efforts are respected and appreciated.
A great improvement of Technology Advisory Board is that now members have an “account center” to update information, track surveys and rewards and request payment. Also they are open to members world wide, they used to only accept United States members.
Shortly after the change, I already have received two surveys and I think it’s promising. Overall, Technology Advisory Board is a pretty good survey panel for tech professionals and I look forward to taking more surveys for them!
