The idea is that you take surveys and earn points toward one of these memberships over time.
The first survey sets your general profile. This gives them an idea of what other surveys to send you. You get 150 points for that one.
Then they email you survey opportunities from time to time.
The Grooveshark ClearVoice survey idea is interesting, but twice now I have gotten half way through the survey only to be stopped with a message saying
“Sorry, but you did not qualify for a survey at the current time.”
There is no indication of what you answered wrong, or why they did not want you to participate.
I don’t mind this so much. I wasn’t the person they wanted for their targeted survey, but I do think you should get points for starting the survey.
Another problem I am having is that the connection between my survey account and my grooveshark profile seems a little muddied. Waiting on tech support right now to clear that up. (14 hours and no word)
This means that on the Grooveshark ‘surveys’ screen it tells me I have the 150 points I previously earned, but then if I click on the update now on Grooveshark anywhere to see what the buyout is, it tells me that there is already a profile associated with my email address. *sigh*
I hope this gets ironed out soon.
If you start a survey and for some reason they don’t need your data then you are ejected from the survey with a message telling you why. Previously you received nothing for this, but now you get 50 points towards your subscription. It doesn’t matter how far you get into it either. Usually they realize they don’t need your data after a minute or two. VERY COOL
