Brand Institute General Information

Brand Institute

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. 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). Topics range, 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.

"Brilliant Website"
January 17, 2017 by Jan from United Kingdom

I have read a number of bad reviews for this company so decided to give my opinion. I have been a member of Brand Institute for a number of years and regularly get sent emails to take part in their surveys which pay $15. I take part in these surveys and receive payment into my PAYPAL account. I completed approximately 15-20 surveys last year and been approached to complete 5 surveys so far this year but only completed 1 so far as been very busy and am very happy to be a member of Brand Institute.

"Horrible Experience with Brand Institute"
December 10, 2016 by Jared from United States

I really liked the idea of Brand Institute and was excited when I became a panel member. But...I never once qualified for any of their surveys. I have been on quite a few survey panels but I have to say, this is one of the very few where I cannot recall being able to qualify for a single survey even though I left truthful responses to screening questions.

What makes me give this panel a "0.5 / 5?" Eventually, they cancelled my account. I felt like the website did not want my opinion or input, so without causing the site any drama or unwanted situations, I have decided to give them a rating based on how they handled me and how they made me feel.

I love giving my opinion and input, why couldn't I do that once for Brand Institute? It's fine, I'm not losing any sleep over it.

"Waste of time"
December 04, 2016 by KAREN from United States

This site is a waste of time. I need 3 cents to cash out for the 1st time & I'm out. Been a couple yrs & I still don't qualify for surveys.

"No surveys received"
November 13, 2016 by Sharmaine from Philippines

I joined April, it's now November (7 months) and beyond the 'welcome to the website' email, there has been no other emails.

I will need to wait 6 months to be a VIP member. It will be interesting to see what that entails.
