What is IPSOS ISay [What they Say]
What is Ipsos ISay, a new rewards survey site? Maybe, we will look at all those things in this review. They certainly have a lot of members. Do they pay well for the surveys? Are there other ways to earn money, opportunity’s?
What is Ipsos-ISay? Well lets start at the beginning…
What is Ipsos I-Say?
If you are from the United States, Canada, or United Kingdom and are 18 years of age or older, you can join Ipsos I-Say for free and start taking surveys. Joining is a breeze, very easy.
You fill out the form and give your email. They, of course, email you for verification, same thing every survey or rewards site does.
The whole process can take a few minutes. Answering questions about yourself and possibly about your likes and hobbies. These could also come in a subsequent visit. I know I did not do mine right away.
How to Earn Points
Unlike other survey sites that include different offers such as product trials or downloads, shopping, Ipsos I-Say strictly focuses on surveys.
You’ll get emails for survey invites, depending on whether you qualify or not.
You also have a dashboard when you log in that displays the surveys you can take.
The point system they use equates to approximately $10 per 1000 points, although this can vary depending on the kinds of rewards that you select.
At least you get something for the time you spent answering questions, only to be disqualified.
You can also earn rewards, or points, for referring friends and family.
By joining Ipsos Isay, you can share your opinion and earn rewards to help you relax and play. If you became an i-Say member today you can let your opinion shine.
Ipsos ISay polls
On Ipsos i-Say, you’ll notice a “Polls” section. They’re not surveys and you don’t earn points from answering “yes” or “no” on these polls, but one interesting aspect of this is the Poll Predictor.
Every time you complete a survey, you’re invited to play what’s known as Poll Predictor, where you guess what percentage of people answer “Yes” to different questions.
You’re awarded “chances” based on how close your guess is. You can use these chances to enter into Ipsos I-Say’s prize draws.
This screenshot show a recent poll prediction that I had, got 20 chances. I put them all on a 500.00 visa card. I will have to do this more often.
Polls or poll predictor are not helpful for earning points, but you can kill a minute or two if you’re burned out from taking surveys.
Overall, there isn’t a whole lot of variety when earning points on Ipsos I-Say as it relies solely on surveys and answering questions
LOYALTY POINTS TOO!
Each time you complete a certain number of surveys, we’ll reward you with additional Ipsos I-Say points. Yes, we’re talking more points in addition to the points you already earned for taking surveys. You know what that means: more points to redeem even more rewards!
Remember, the loyalty points you earn are combined with the points you earn for taking surveys.
*The loyalty program runs from January 1 – December 31 each year and the number of surveys taken does not carry over.
The number of loyalty points you earn never expires as long as you remain an active Ipsos I-Say member. The loyalty points increase, starts after doing just 5 surveys.
Some History of the Company
Ipsos Group S.A. is a global market research and a consulting firm with worldwide headquarters in Paris, France.
The company was founded in 1975 by Didier Truchot, Chairman and CEO, and has been publicly traded on the Paris Stock Exchange since July 1, 1999.
Despite the success, the company’s profitability remained at modest levels until the arrival of Jean-Marc Lech as co-chairman.
From then on, it started to perform public opinion researches, another innovative activity in the French market.
By the end of the ’80s, it was the fifth largest media research company in France.
During the 1990s, Ipsos expanded, principally through acquisitions, to Spain, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom and Central Europe, especially Hungary.
In 1992, the company was opened to private investment to improve its purchasing capital.
In the mid-’90s Ipsos was one of the most important research companies in Europe and decided to expand globally.
In 1997, Ipsos entered into the South American market with the acquisition of Novaction. Also in 1998 into the North American, with the purchase of the American company ASI Market Research, a leading advertising researcher.
In 1999, Ipsos was listed on the Paris stock exchange.
The successful offering enabled Artemis and Amstar to cash out on their investments and also gave Ipsos the possibility to continue its expansion.
Then, it participated of the creation of an Internet audience research joint-venture, MMXI Europe, with the majority of shares held by partner Media Matrix and 20 percent by Ipsos.
The company also took control of four subsidiaries of NFO Worldwide specializing in the formation of access panels.
The expansion continued in Asia, South America and especially in North America (with the purchase of the Canadian company Angus Reid, renamed Ipsos-Reid in 2000).
In 2011, Ipsos acquired Aegis Group Plc’s Synovate division.
Ipsos has organized its business into several areas of specialization: media and advertising research; marketing research; opinion and social research; client and employee relationship management.
The Ipsos ISay website is very “clean”. Mostly because unlike the reward sites we see there are no offers pulling us in different places.
One of my favorite of mine, points and time to take the survey are posted. I find this invaluable, sometimes I have only 15-20 minutes.
Easy to join, easy to earn points.
Some say hard to qualify for surveys. This has not been my experience.
The lists of surveys is not updated as soon as it should.
You can gain points for referrals, but you have to give them, your referrals email address. You can refer someone you have their email. Make this a little limited.
MY TWO CENTS
A typical survey site? I would say better than many that I have seen. What I see and hear, people complain, can’t qualify for surveys. This is not a reason to get upset. Happens to me not too often but it does.
Believe that the people who sponsor the surveys, want to hear from a particular group. You may get kicked, because of age, ethnic, zip code.
Would like to make more money online, that a survey sight can pay.
