Typical of profit-driven companies, everything is great in the beginning then eventually they cut in order to make bigger profits, in the restaurant industry they cut portions and increase price, in the GPT industry they reduce pay rates....
BTW, on ClixSense, things were going well for surveys, a BIG decline started in 2019, from March and onward, as much as 50-75% decline, so even on CS I noticed a drastic drop in the QUALITY of the surveys, mostly junk, recycles, off quota.... Surprisingly here, in August it was a good month for surveys, even though most days were bad, there were few really good days that made up for it. September was slightly better, same pattern, October was even better, same pattern, though lately, gradually the amount of good surveys have dropped. There seems to be issues now some surveys pay less than advertised (some CINT) and some surveys pay more than advertised - it's hard to know if it is a bug with the actual rates list on our invites or what is going on.
I truly hope some good tasks comes again this month to make a good month.
One thing that is good here though is OpinionWorld and YourSurveys.
BUT on the flip side some routers have gotten ROTTEN...... IPSOS used to be a great provider of surveys, now a lot of their surveys just redirect instantly back to panel without asking a single question OR simply harder to qualify or simply does not redirect back after completion. Sample Cube is now hit and miss, they are harder to qualify to and most redirect instantly to screenout. Maybe the decline in surveys is largely attributed to the providers themselves. I mean LUCID has consistently made hundreds of millions of $ net profits from our data, yet it is one of the rotten routers that have declined big time in quality - They have a lot of dishonest clients who reverse surveys incorrectly and unfairly, I provided PROOF how survey clients fraudulently reject surveys to avoid paying, in one of my topics with screenshots, so yeah we are constantly struggling against greedy corporations that want to make more money on our data and pay us less, and by greedy corporations I am referring to the survey networks and providers mostly.
OpinionWorld used to be one of the best, where they use their OWN inventory. Now it seems they are desperate for inventory that they sometimes outsource to SampleCube, so this means instant redirection to screenout most of the time, and SampleCube mostly outsources from you guessed it LUCID (Samplicio) so it's no wonder why we get screened out most of the time.
Why are rates becoming lower because of the low info voter - how come when most members were used to taking surveys for few dollars will gladly take the same survey for few cents now, so obviously companies will lower their pay rates if they are getting the same completion conversion rates and sample - If people stop supporting exploitation of labour, then the companies will increase the rates until they get a good conversion again, that's how it works.
If people are willing to work for half a penny, of course you will see more work, why not quarter penny, then three quarter of a penny, if there is work done, there is no reason for companies to pay any more, people are still working.
As long as people continue to support drastic drop in rates, the industry will follow........ If a network sees that a survey is not getting any conversion and interest, it will raise rates until there is interest and it can finish on schedule.
The whole surveys and task thing is a market place, they can play around in how they pay you until they find a leveling field where people are still working.
