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 paid 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.
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.
Referral program ended
Although Brand Institute offered a referral program in the past, it was discontinued as of January 1st, 2017.
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.

I was a panelist of this site years ago, I never received payout for a survey and finally got a reply from customer service a few months and many emails later. I was supposed to be paid $2 paypal, but they paid me $10 I guess for my trouble. They then booted me out of the panel and I haven't been able to join again.

They ask for a social security number which I have never ever seen a survey company do; especially one that pays by paypal, what is the purpose in that? Please be careful out there giving out any ss numbers!

I like Brand Institute, have always gotten paid fast. I don't get many surveys but the ones I do are interesting and compensated for.

I rather like Brand Institute, they have a different kind of survey setup where you get to decide on the names of products and rate them. I have been paid by check twice already without even requesting the payout. Sure, they were only for $2 each, but they do pay quickly in my opinion. I have only been a member for 4 months, but I do like the change of pace you get with them.

Excuses are Brand Institute's stock in trade. They claim you've violated their rules as soon as it's time to pay. When you ask for exact details because you question the validity of their claim, the ignore you. I have tried to resolve the issue they claimed by email and phone to no avail. The phone is never answered and the emails are not returned. I'm ready to bring this outfit to the attention of the Florida Attorney General. Avoid this company, they're clearly not legitimate!
