Hey Everyone, The IDGTechNetwork, the company that handles some of our advertisements here on geeks are sexy, have asked us to compile some demographic data on our audience. In the past, we’ve asked you to fill out a survey to help us, but this year, we’ll handle things a little differently. We’re asking you to join a tech panel to simplify the whole procedure. By doing this, you’ll be entered to win tons of cool prizes (Paypal, Amazon, and retail gift cards), and we’ll get the data we need to get some relevant ads on the site. Since running this place costs a small fortune, this will definitely help us pay the bills at the end of each month.
First, when a panelist joins he has to fill out a profile, which will put him in a certain category of people (Gamer, IT Pro, etc.). This will give me a strong understanding about exactly what kind of people visits G.A.S.
Then, OCCASIONALLY (you decide about the frequency), you will be invited to take some surveys. There is NO FORCING and NO SPAMMING. It’s all completely opt in. For these surveys, you will get paid. We’re not talking about sweepstakes here. A simple, short survey might give you $1, but for something more specialized, say blade servers, you might get something around $20. You can then cash that money out and get gift certificates / paypal gift cards / etc.
If you already joined, thank you! And if you didn’t, I’ve just been informed that all accounts will now get a $5 bonus at sign up and be entered to win a free iPad. Yes, it also includes those of you who already joined in the past by the way!
