Do you enjoy earning extra cash while taking surveys? Are you ready to add another survey site to your already growing list? Do you want your opinion to count for something? Then Directive Analytics might be something for you to look into.
What Exactly is Directive Analytics?
Directive Analytics is a full service market research firm which helps companies market products, develop or redevelop their brand, and collect and analyze data. One of the ways that Directive Analytics helps companies collect data is via online and offline surveys. This is where you as a work-at-homer (WAHer) come in. By taking surveys, you will be earning points towards cash.
Directive Analytics maintains a stellar client list of well-known clients such as Subway, General Mills, Nestle, Disneyland, Netflix, Staples, American Express, and many more recognizable names.
Directive Analytics claims to have 100,000 members taking surveys in the following industries:
- home and family
There are also polling and product testing projects as well. However, it appears that most workers opt for the surveys.
Is It Free to Join Directive Analytics?
Directive Analytics is free to join. Just sign up with a legitimate email account, which will be verified. You will also need to create a user name and a password.
Once your email is verified, you will be taken to the registration site, where you will create a profile with your personal information. Here, you will also indicate which types of surveys you would be interested in taking. (See the list above.) Then you wait to be invited to participate in the surveys via email.
Once the survey invitations begin coming to your email address, you can decide whether or not to accept them or which ones to accept. Pick a survey and log into your account and complete it. You may also invite your friends to join Directive Analytics.
How Much Money Can You Earn With Directive Analytics?
The actual money you make will depend on the number of DirectPoints you earn per survey. DirectPoints are earned as you complete each survey. Each survey will vary in the amount of points earned based on the length and complexity of the survey. The number of points is clearly stated in the survey’s introduction.
When taking the surveys, make sure that you are paying attention, because the surveys do have quality assurance checkpoints. This ensures the client that you are paying attention and providing consistent answers. Consistently failing these quality assurance checkpoints will get you removed from taking surveys in the future.
You will earn $1 USD for every 100 DirectPoints you earn.
Can People Outside of the US Join Directive Analytics?
Yes, people outside of the US may participate in the survey panels at Directive Analytics. The company is actually in the process of expanding its international panels. Before signing up, it might be helpful to send an email to Directive Analytics to see if your country is on the list.
Most of Europe and Central Asia are on the list, but any other country should probably send an email first to be sure that they may participate.
How Many Points Do You Need to Cash Out?
You must have 100 DirectPoints to be able to accumulate $1 USD. It looks as if you can cash out even at $1 by requesting a check request via email.
Checks are mailed out to the address you provided in your profile and can sometimes take from 6 to 8 weeks to receive. For this reason, most workers let their balances build up before requesting a check.
While some surveys pay rather quickly, some may take up to 2 weeks to pay. You may log into your account at any time and check your available balance.
Are There Other Rewards Besides Cash?
Sometimes prizes are also rewarded for those answering surveys. Instructions on how to win prizes are also included in the survey’s introduction along with the number of DirectPoints. I have heard of people winning gift cards and food.
Does Directive Analytics Have a Referral Program?
It doesn’t appear that Directive Analytics has a formal affiliate program, where you actually earn money from a referral link or banner link, but you may still refer up to 10 of your friends. Just send them an invitation via email from your account.
