Founded in 2008, Mindswarms is a market research company that collects consumer data from the use of video surveys. If you are not camera-shy, then take advantage of the generous rewards offered by this panel. Receive $50 for each study you complete!
Step 1: Sign Up
There are two ways to sign up with Mindswarms. You can create an account through your desktop/laptop, but make sure you have a webcam available to use. The other option is to download the Mindswarms app on your Android or Apple phone/tablet.
Step 2: Create a Profile
The next step is to create your profile. Mindswarms requires you to have a profile video to ensure that your camera works. There also are a few questions to answer in the member profile section to narrow down which types of surveys you will qualify for.
Step 3: Apply for Studies
Within your account you will see opportunities that you can apply for based on your demographic. The application process is quick and takes less than a minute to complete. Just answer a few multiple choice questions that will be reviewed by a researcher within 24 hours. If you are chosen, then you can begin recording your video answers!
Step 4: Record a Video
Once you are chosen, you will be asked to answer 1 – 7 questions through video. You read each question, then provide your 45-60 second response. Depending on how many questions are required, this process takes 10 to 20 minutes of your time. Remember your answers could have an impact on future business decisions!
Answer Questions in Your Own Language
Most surveys are in English, but some surveys are in various other languages. A good rule of thumb is to answer the questions in the same language the questions are asked in. (ie: if the questions are in English, record your questions in English, if its in Spanish, record in Spanish).
Earn $50 for Each Video!
If you are asked to answer 7 questions, you will be rewarded with $50! 1 question is rewarded with $10. Payment is distributed via PayPal and is received 24 hours after you complete and send in your video survey.
Tips for Recording a Great Video
Mindswarms reminds its panelists of a few tips and tricks that can be used to record a great video. They are as follows:
- Letting out your emotions is encouraged, and don’t forget to be yourself!
- Be honest with all of your responses
- Light your face, shoot from the hip and show the product
- Eliminate background noise
- Take the full minute to respond to each question for well-rounded answers
Recommend Studies to your Friends
Encourage your friends to take advantage of the great rewards and the excitement of recording video answers. There is a specific section on each member account that allows you to refer your friends to studies that may interest them.

- Primarily, the information on MindSwarms is fairly outdated and inaccurate.
- I am honestly nostalgic of when they were barely growing as a survey panel, their video surveys paid about 50$ per 7 question survey, and their support was lightning fast and their surveys were about only 30 minutes in average length. The prime time for joining this Past titan survey company is NOW long gone. Now...
Frankly, this survey company conducts their research with an inadequate and shady method. Each Survey is ridiculously long, (their 20 minute claims are outrageously inaccurate), The pay is somewhat good, but they are basically valuing your time at approximately $6.60 an hour (based on the math done according to the panel's average pay rate per survey.)
-Their hosted support takes approximately 8 days reply, (from my latest experience.)

I can see "Cash paid via PayPal, Online surveys, Mobile surveys, Receive $50 via PayPal for every study that you complete. Payments made within 24 hours of study completion." etc...
All this sound so attractive; I am expecting to take survey and get paid for that.
I saw a comment saying that for 6 months he/she did not get noticed for any survey... I hope this not going to be my case too.
However I am wishing you all success.

I'm just adding to the chorus of praise, but this site and the surveys you'll get are super easy to do and pay very well! I do wish they had more surveys, but I just love the easy webcam format. The questions and activities are fun and they pay fast like they promised. I've never had to wait the full 24 hours to get paid. (Even if you don't have a webcam, Amazon has some cheap ones you can get from China, that just plug into your USB port, so don't let that stop you from making money with this site! Fun, fabulous site!

I joined this panel, applied for a study, got accepted and then paid all I less than a day. 75 dollars for 7 minutes of my time? Yes please. Nothing but love for this panel!

It's hard to get into surveys sometimes (I applied for maybe 30, only got into a few). But it's super easy once you get in. Most of the time 7 questions and you get $50. It literally takes 15 minutes to complete a survey. Sometimes you need their app, like if you go on location to a restaurant or supermarket or whatever, but they give you extra $$ if you have to travel. Study applications are quick, money always sent 24 hours after you finish a survey. I set up a PayPal account to use them. 100% love Mindswarms!
