Toluna.com Essentials: Ways to Earn More Points, Part 1

The Toluna community offers our members a chance to express their opinions. In our series of “Toluna Essentials” we’ll go over all the techniques you can use to get the most out of your experience with Toluna. In this week’s edition, we will go over one of the ways to earn more points, specifically small point polls.

1

The first place to find small point polls is to scroll through the Toluna homepage in search of these salmon colored content blocks. These are highlighted surveys that usually offer anything from 15-2000 points.For example, in the picture above you see a bar labeled “Food” for up to 45 points.

2

You can also easily access these by going to the recommended tab on the homepage.

3

Another way to stay updated with short polls, is to follow the QuickvotesUS account that constantly posts 15 point polls like the one pictured above.

Stay tuned! Next week we will post MORE tips and tricks to earn more points.

Best,

Survey Points to be Credited Within 24 Hours!

Dear Members,

We have an exciting announcement about the crediting of points.  Beginning December 1st, we will now be able to credit our members for completing less complex studies within 24 hours of completion!  This means, no more waiting for your points, and more opportunities to get rewards faster!

24-hours

As this is a new feature, for the time being, surveys with lower incentive amounts (up to 2000 points) will be part of our auto-credit process, and over time we will be able to expand and include more and more higher paying studies.  The most complex surveys, including those with high incentives, focus groups and product tests, for example) will continue to be credited as usual within 2-6 weeks of the surveys closure.

We look forward to seeing more of your content on the site and hope you enjoy this new feature!

Best Regards,
The Toluna Team
