Viewsbank, previously known as MyConsumerIntel.co.uk, is a consumer research company. It's unique to the UK at the moment but might soon be expanding so if you're abroad and wanting to earn money you won't have long to wait!
An introduction to Viewsbank
Viewsbank is free and easy to join. All you have to do is sign up with an email and provide your name, gender, D.O.B and country of residence. You can earn money through their surveys, polls, home-based projects, mystery shopping and referral links. They offer around 3-8 surveys a week, around 2-5 pools a week and a lot of home-based projects. These can be things like Internet research or testing products and providing feedback afterwards, so a large variety of possibilities!
With their referral schemes, you can earn £1 for every successful referred person who completes a survey. You can also earn more money through the competitions they run in their forums so it's definitely worth checking there as well. There are also occasional shopping assignments in which you can not only earn money but also save it.
There's also two other ways you can make money. If you submit an idea for a poll that is later published then you can earn £5 or if you submit a picture that is later posted in Viewsbank‘s forum (such as Best Pet Picture etc.) then you can earn another £5!
How do I know when there's tasks available?
You can know when there are available tasks or surveys available by checking the email that you registered with or a more efficient way is to log on to your account frequently and double check as it sometimes occurs that some weren't emailed to you.
How are payments made and calculated?
Unfortunately you can only get paid at the end of every month but the threshold is very low (only £6) so you can get paid promptly via PayPal after this. Payment vary per tasks so if there are a lot of highly paid tasks available to you, it's definitely worth leaping to the opportunity such as Mystery shopping assignments that sometimes pay £25!
The average monthly earnings from participating in Viewsbank is £15-20 a month.
