Brand Institute is a world premiere brand identity consultancy in the US and is the parent of the Drug Safety Institute (DSI), which offers a path to naming a drug properly that assures approval. The biggest target for them, then, is a medical professional. They do also send out consumer surveys on occasion. Note that applying to be a part of this panel is not an easy task, as almost all studies are addressed to medical professionals.

Get paid cash for completing surveys

Take surveys on a variety of different topics and earn cash. Get paid via check or directly to your PayPal account - your choice. You will automatically be issued a payment once the study fully closes.

Payment amounts

As with any survey panel, the amount of compensation you receive for a completing surveys will vary, however, typically, most regular surveys pay between $2-$5, and medical surveys pay anywhere from $5-$30 per completion. If you happen to match with the panel’s unique criteria, you can expect to receive up to 20 surveys a year. The amount of compensation offered for completing the survey, as well as the approximate time it will take you to complete the survey, will be listed in the e-mail you are sent, inviting you to participate in the study.

Medical professionals earn more - much more

If you are a doctor, pharmacist, nurse, or other medical professional, you will be eligible to take special medical surveys. These surveys pay much more than regular consumer surveys, as only a select group of people qualify to complete them (i.e. people who work in healthcare). Survey topics are varied, however surveys are often related to drug names, as pharmaceutical companies comprise a large chunk of Brand Institute's clients.

Special VIP program

When you have been an active member of Brand Institute for a least 6 months, you may become eligible to become a VIP member. Once you have obtained this status, you can simply log into your account to see what studies are available to you, rather than waiting to be e-mailed. If you are in medicine, this is especially helpful, as you will see a listing of the open surveys, and their associated payouts.

Eligibility: anybody 18+ from around the world can join. Medical professionals are preferred.

Great Company But Very Few Surveys

July 2, 2019 by Christopher from United States

I enjoy the surveys, but they are very far and few in between. However, since I have been with them for a long time, I have begun some at home product testing paying $100 or more.

Charged to get paid

Now they charge you to get paid, they deduct a fee from what you have earned, for the privilege of paying you.

A Medical Survey Site

July 31, 2018 by Fran from United States

This site is looking for particular groups. Medical professionals and people with chronic illnesses will get the most surveys. Usually a survey pays $4 for 15-20 minutes of your time.
