It's time for Cafestudy to take a good long hard look at itself, after all, we are in the business of market research. So let us know what were your main reasons for joining Cafestudy?

Was it what you expected? What if anything is better than you expected and what is not as good? If you are a member of another online panel what makes us different?

And finally, if Cafestudy were a famous person, who would it be?

I've been a member for many years now. I joined out of the blue when I was trying to make some extra money during college and have stayed ever since. I enjoy talking to the community and answering surveys which I hope helps the topics I am eligible for. Plus, the best thing about CafeStudy compared to other survey sites is that the community is very friendly, there is more than one way to win a prize and unlike some survey sites, Cafestudy actually pay out and don't make you signup to random things or give your information out! I especially love the topics for the $50 Egiftcard 'Have your Say Competitions' which regularly occur.

The one downfall that I have noticed recently is, there haven't been as many surveys as in the past and if I do get one, I am normally not eligible for numerous reasons despite my profile being accurate. This is why I love the 'Have your Say Competitions' to make up for survey's I'm not eligible for which other survey sites I use do not have.

I also love Cafestudy's community and reading the topics/responses on the Chat Forums which further diversifies Cafestudy from other survey sites which normally don't have that community feel to it.

Overall, Cafestudy is one of the better community driven survey sites that I have used and will continue to use and recommend to anyone who is looking to contribute on topics, answer surveys and make some extra cash in their spare time.

I'm unsure of who exactly CafeStudy would be. But, I'm sure there is a famous non-for-profit person out there that get's people thinking and talking about what's going on in the world. I say this as Cafestudy doesn't ask for anything from its users other than a few minutes of our time, pays us and gets us thinking/talking about the worlds ongoings at the present time.

I can’t remember when I’d joined it feels like I’ve always been a part of this community. Looking at the date, it coincides with becoming a parent and feeling isolated and overwhelmed. Cafe study has provided fun and engaging opportunities to be heard on topics that (generally) matters. I have enjoyed being challenged to think a little harder and deeper on a variety of topics for this I am grateful. The financial incentives are not my main driver to contribute, i wouldn’t participate if I didn’t really want to share.
The best surveys are the multi part ones so that I can better appreciate the subject and reflect on it but those seems to have disappeared. My least favourite are the TV show related ones, I wonder how effectiveness of advertising can be properly quantified/assessed?
The personification of Cafestudy would be a constant companion that I’ve grown fond of their quirks so maybe a celebrity like David Letterman comes to mind?

I joined cafestudy obviously to gain the incentives offered, but I also enjoy offering my opinions and being involved in discussions.

Of the survey panels I am involved in, Cafestudy is one of the better ones. Why? I feel valued by Cafestudy. The surveys are pretty good, and, although I am not sure why, I do feel valued by CafeStudy. I feel that Cafestudy values my opinions and rewards me fairly, if not sometimes, generously. When I get an email from Cafestudy re: a survey, I always click on the link because I have a positive feeling about Cafestudy in general and so I am motivated to be involved.

So cafestudy has met or exceeded my expectations.

I am not sure who Cafestudy would be if they were a famous person, although in general I feel they would be a compassionate and ethical scientist, working for the common good and for the benefit of others.

Main reason - for financial rewards. It was what I expected, however there don't seem to be a lot of surveys to complete so earnings are limited compared to say pureprofile.
the survey experience itself is good as the surveys are generally short and well organised. on other survey panels, you can generally just log in and complete surveys rather than waiting for an email.
if cafestudy was a famous person it would be a chat host like jimmy kimmel as they talk a lot but not a lot of content! sorry just mean fewer surveys and rewards than other companies.

Hmm I joined a long time go. I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t for the rewards. Having said that I’ve come to enjoy doing market research. I’ve learned a lot and expanded my knowledge on all sorts of products, social topics and services. I appreciate the screen out points and the fact that this site doesn’t screen people out after they’ve completed a lengthy amount or often cases all of the survey. I don’t like using the word scam but that’s how it’s starting to feel on some of the other survey sites. It would be good to get a few more surveys here. My famous person would be Ronni Kahn. She is making a difference to the lives of so many people through OZ Harvest and helping the environment.

A good survey platform - surveys not overly long, and generally well designed. Very mobile friendly. The only downside is that there aren't enough of them. Keep up the good work!

I joined for the exciting chats /surveys and reading reply's from others some are great the way they just know what to say . And my famous person is Tina Turner for what she been through and what she has achieved in her life.

Well to be honest for the rewards as a pensioner this makes a huge difference to my lifestyle. Also interested in people view but I don't often contribute as my thoughts are often covered by other members more succinctly than I could. looking forward to an increase in points though lol

I love cafe survey however I would love if there were more surveys and tasks. The surveys and tasks I have done have been quite interesting and rewarding and the reception process is easy.

  • 12th May 2021 12:17pm

I joined mainly to get a reward, nothing like a freebie right. However I didn't expect it to be si limited in its rewards. 10 minute surveys for 2 dollars. Also you expect everybody to be conformists. It is meant to be anonymous but I truly doubt it. The famous person would be Nicholas cage promises a lot but a bit disappointing in the end

It’s interesting and a way to contribute to better products and services. I wonder though whether older people are excluded. I’m older, still working, vibrant and involved in family and community. Do you encounter a disinterest in my cohort’s views?

That's great to hear Mariasuzanna! We definitely value your opinion no matter what age group you sit in. We simply only send relevant surveys to you.

Also, look out for competitions (there is one going now on the home page) and 2,000 points given out monthly for great responses across all of our discussions.

I remember there were rewards offered. I have done some surveys, never any mention of any rewards. So no, not what I expected. And no, it is not better or as good as I expected. No I am not. A famous person? I would say Henry Ford. His first 2 automobile companies failed. Maybe Cafe Study can do what he did and become a success. Oh, and one other thing. I only changed my password recently but I had to change it again to log in this time. Surely security is not such an issue with Cafestudy that I have to change my pw every time I log in? It is really REALLY annoying. I will pull out of the online panel if that happens again.

Hi Donny, Thanks for your feedback! You need 200 points to redeem so once you reach that amount a 'REDEEM POINTS' option will appear in your menu bar. To see how many points you have, please go to 'MANAGE ACCOUNT' > 'POINTS HISTORY'. Also, look out for competitions (one going now on the home page) and 2,000 points given out monthly for great responses across all of our discussions. I'll email you about your password issues as this should not be the case :)

Reasons for joining Cafestudy - voicing my opinions about relevant topics, reading others points of view and of course, the change to be rewarded.
It has been great however there are not very many surveys on offer compared to other online panels.
If Cafestudy were a famous person, I feel it would be Rhianna ... popular, edgy and cool but then seems to vanish.

Cafestudy seems to have more different & interesting surveys - unfortunately I seem to be 'unwanted' for too many. The response to problems & queries is great.
Perhaps Richard Branson - innovative & a bit 'out there'.

I joined Cafestudy to give my opinions and to gain a reward every now and again, Cafestudy is pretty much what I expected not that there are many survey invitations to be had but I try to give my opinions when I am invited to a survey through my email survey invitation. It would be nice to receive more invitations to increase my participation and I could also then be rewarded much more often. I am a member of quite a few other survey panels but they are mostly similar to Cafestudy who can pass as Elvis Presley I feel!

  • 11th May 2021 05:11pm

Why not get paid for your opinion. I joined quite some time ago and love that I get paid for giving my honest feedback. If I can help a company do better what more can you ask for. I don't get a lot of surveys and could always do with some more. The surveys are easy to complete and great now that I have the app. so I can complete it in my lunch break.
If Cafestudy was a famous person it would have to be Katy Perry,,,, always bright and bubbly.

  • 11th May 2021 11:18am

When I get surveys I quite enjoy doing them but the very rarely come.The topics are always interesting but not often for non alcohol drinkers.If it was a famous person it would be someone you know has good stuff but you don't hear much from like Jeff Lynne ex elo and the willburys.

renee2786
  • 11th May 2021 10:56am

I was interested to give my opinion and liked the idea of being able to do so in exchange for points I can cash into gift cards etc.
It was way better and more enjoyable than I expected and whats better is the platform itself and the layout and how easy it is to be apart of and how quick and easy it is to redeem my points.

If Cafestudy was a famous person they would be Katy Perry because their cool fun and genuine.

Love Cafestudy, but you offer only few surveys a month, very rarely I receive any invitations. I am happy to contribute more but not many surveys are available. Other online panels have way too more surveys which make them more appealing. If Cafestudy were a famous person, I would say they would be Mariah Carey - she has great songs but only few are famous. So is Cafestudy - great surveys but too little are on offer.

I quite like being part of cafestudy. I get surveys fairly regularly and qualify most times, so I guess I fit many target demographics for this company's clients. I think the rewards are quite reasonable. I like cafestudy better than other panels because the surveys are better designed and easy to fill out, and usually quite quick to complete. If cafestudy were a famous person it would probably be Steve Carell. Easy going, fun, youthful and reliable

It i nothing like I expected. I expected surveys. I have not qualified for a single survey in 2021, and I qualified for a whole 5 for the entirety of 2020 (covid notwithstanding). I was led to believe there would be regular surveys with regular payouts, and I have been sorely disappointed. I have been a member for 15 years, and there is no incentive for long term loyal members whatsoever. I feel very disappointed by this survey group overall.

And as for a famous person? Probably Oprah - overpromising and underdelivering, all mouth and no trousers.

I enjoy being part of a community like Cafestudy and helping in some small way to shape the future of new products, etc.
I have been somewhat disappointed in recent times as the number of surveys I receive is very low, probably less than one per month.
Can't actually think of a famous person who suits this brand but I guess it would be someone who is pretty laid back and love to sit and have a coffee and a chat.

I joined because I love to have a coffee and a chat. However since becoming involved with the different aspects of Cafestudy I have realised you are one of the more professional survey sites and offer good incentives for human feedback and opinions. I think you are doing a marvellous job and I enjoy to associate with you. If you were a famous person you would be Johnny Depp. He is very approachable and loves to have a candid chat over a coffee and a smoke :).

My main reason for joining Cafestudy was by recommendation. I heard about earning rewards for participating in research but wasn't expecting much from it. It is true, the surveys are very few & between. That's ok though- I like that you need to qualify to participate instead of just faking your answers! More opportunities would be great though!

I find market research fascinating, and surveys a fascinating research tool. I find it funny when I attempt to do a survey but then get booted out. I also like how this doesn’t waste my time filling in a survey I can’t adequately contribute too. The surveys are well laid out, easy to follow, and I rarely feel trapped into answering a question I feel I can’t answer accurately, which happens often enough elsewhere (in which case I feel manipulated and give up).
And finally - which famous person? I’ve just spun the random generator in my brain and come up with Madonna 🤷‍♀️

The good thing about cafestudy is the discussion panel and sharing ideas, as well as collecting points.

The survey invitations are reduced to the minimum this year which is not good😅.

If cafestudy were a famous person, I would like it to be Steve Harvey of course.

I have been a member for quite a few years. I feel I don't get very many survey invitations from Cafestudy and until a couple of months ago wasn't aware of the reward for answers to chat, therefore I think the communication of how to earn rewards could be communicated better along with an email each time a new topic is posted for discussion. These are the ways in which Cafestudy isn't what I expected because it seems a bit laid back and sporadic with activities and communication. I do however think the topics for discussion are well thought out and not meaningless or inappropriate like some survey sites. I do like the spot rewards for good contributions as I think this encourages engagement, with the point having to be made to people that 3 or 4 word responses don't cut the mustard as they don't add any insight for further development of research by cafestudy. It is nice that people who put effort in are rewarded in the program. I think polls are a good way for a survey site to gauge opinions on topics before launching into writing a full blown survey, so maybe more polls with a small reward would be a good development.
As Cafestudy is relaxed I view the site as George Clooney slowly sipping a cup of coffee.
