Hiya Guys...

Just asking if it's a little slow on Prolific for you guys too..:( It was OK before Xmas etc, was coming on like once a day then, now nothing or very very slow...Can anyone suggest any other survey sites that are worth a stab at...

Many thanks for your help / advice..

Cheers..MAX

I've had quite a few studies over the last few weeks. It just depends on the demographics that they are looking for at the time. Sometimes there are lots, sometimes hardly any.

Been quiet for me too since Christmas. Before then I was getting a few every single day but so far I had two yesterday but nothing for days before that and nothing today.
Hopefully it will pick up again soon.

Yes mine is also very variable. Had £2 one this morning and nothing since then. Last week there were days I seemed to get one after another and then other days with none at all.

I don't think anything else pays quite as well if you are just looking at surveys. Maybe have a look at other things, but if you are wedded to surveys take a look at @katykicker 's favourite sites or give respondent.io a go. I personally quite like panelbase and global testmarket.

I did a long mathematical one yesterday on interpreting graphs. It is always quiet when students are on holiday.

It was busy for me last week but has been very quiet this week and have just picked up one survey. Although it could be firing me surveys when I'm away from the laptop ;) When it is quiet, I always go back to branded surveys.

I’ve had 8 surveys today, I completed 6 of them ranging from 40p to £1.75. There was a high paying one for an hour that I missed but I was at work and couldn’t do it.

I’ve only been a member of prolific for a few days and I really like it so far, the questions are interesting and not repetitive drivel. I also like to help the students with their research so I give my replies with lots of thought and detail.

I find it’s been quiet but it is well paid the times you do get them so worth sticking with. I’ve been trying to do other surveys but I seem to be screened out 9/10 times and the times im not I find them so dull! X

I don’t do prolific but is the number of studies you see not tied to things like your demographics etc?

I have had four this evening after barely seeing anything for the past couple of weeks, I think it is just the demographic that is required at the time and you have to be lucky enough to be in it :)

They really are the best for surveys. Well paid and so interesting!
