Some company's make money out of Public Opinion, they bother you on the street corners, in the mall or even call you. It doesn't have to be much (maybe a dollar), Im sure much more people will coperate, and company's or organizations will get a better picture of the public opinion and improve their service!
make this world a better place!! *wink*
I know, there are a few projects (on the internet that is) that give you points for every questionairy you fill-out, and when you have 100pts you can choose between a number of products, no money.
I'm sure that paying people with real money will be much more popular then collecting those points.
Give your opinion on anything and get paid for it. [blahginger, Sep 14 2000, last modified Oct 04 2004]

||It's supply and demand. The people who choose to answer questions for free are those who feel that their time is worth nothing. Are those opinions the ones corporations value?
||Not necessarily. People get paid to attend focus groups, etc. The public is already getting paid. Your idea is already in use. Congrats.
