MarketAgent is an online survey site which was established in 2001 by a European market research based in Austria. The site was initially only open to people in Europe, but has recently expanded to include surveys for other countries around the world, including the US. So while it will be new to survey takers in the US, it is a site which has a long track record.
The signup process is fairly short and easy to complete, requiring only about 15 points of basic information about yourself. After confirming your email address it’s pretty simple to get started. The site awards a bonus of 100 points just for completing the singup process.
The layout of this paid survey site is simple and straightforward, with one small exception: since English isn’t the native language of the people who built the site some of the text can be a little confusing. For example, the different sections of the site are listed in a single menu on the left-hand side of the page.
After completing a survey you may receive a “Vote & Win” survey invitation which will allow you to participate in a very short and simple survey which rewards an entry to a drawing for an iPad rather than points.
One disappointing aspect of MarketAgent in comparison to other paid survey sites is the modest referral program. It is possible to refer friends and family to use the site, and receive a 50 point bonus when they have signed up and completed their first survey.
That bonus amount is low compared to other sites and only applies to the first survey completed by someone you refer.
The program has a mobile application available for both iOS and Android mobile devices.
The application is simple and straightforward, making this a good option for participating in paid surveys on the go.
