Registration to OpinionWorld is quite simple: just enter your gender, name and email address and you'll receive a link to the registration survey. You'll need about 5 minutes to complete these steps and become a new member of OpinionWorld.
You can also log in using your Facebook account, which some may find more convenient.
Once registered, you'll get an entry for the quarterly Prize Draw and be offered a first opportunity to complete a survey.
Surveys can often be completed in no more than 15 minutes, which is pleasant considering that other paid survey companies sometimes send you 30-to-45-minute long surveys.
You'll receive an entry for the Quarterly Prize Draw each time you complete a survey. You'll also receive one when you are notified that the survey you were about to complete is closed, when you receive a "screener" (1-2 questions only) or when you are asked to update your profile.
The number of Prize Draw Entries you already obtained is indicated on your "My Account" page. The more entries you obtain, the higher your chances to win the Prize.
Some surveys also reward you with points that you can redeem for cash or gift cards later.
