Click IQ Reivew
An online paid survey company that offers points for completing each survey. The points are called “Visor points” and you earn a certain number of points (usually around 50) for completing each survey. After joining the site, you will become what they refer to as an “E-visor,” and you’ll earn 100 points for joining the site. Unlike other online survey sites, you do not get points for referrals.
Joining Click IQ takes about 15 minutes of your time. You need to fill out an extensive questionnaire regarding the household products you use, children in your family, occupation, etc. This information is collected to put you on a panel. When your profile is complete, you can view the number of panels you are eligible for.
Click IQ collects information for a third party, ascertains the information provided to them from your survey then informs them of the results. Surveys are sent to participants via e-mail. You are under no obligation to complete any surveys, but the more you complete, the more points you earn. You need to accumulate 2,500 points in order to “cash out.”
Each 100 points is worth $1, so on the average, you will make about $1 (sometimes up to $1.50) for each survey you complete. The surveys are very short, however, and take less than 10 minutes to complete. There are some legitimate paid surveys online that take longer and offer more points. The highest amount of points I made for completing a survey was 500 and that survey took me approximately twenty minutes to complete.
I have mixed feelings about this site. I found the initial questionnaire to be quite extensive and time consuming. The other problem I have is that they offer surveys sporadically. You won’t even receive one each week, which makes accumulating points a lengthy process.
The good news about this site is that it is truly legitimate. They will pay you $25 every time you accumulate 2,500 points and do so by check. You can also request to have the money put into your Paypal account.
Another positive aspect of Click IQ is the privacy issue. Since joining the site, I haven’t received any spam mail, as a matter of fact, I haven’t received many e-mails from them at all. Unlike some online survey sites that seem to flood your inbox every 15 minutes or so, Click IQ is very low-key. They will never provide your personal information to a third party and you won’t be harassed by a series of unwanted telemarketing calls.
Prior to writing this article, I clicked on the website to see if there was anything new and was surprised to see that at the current time, no surveys are available. Other members of Click IQ who I’ve met and talked to state that the site tends to be either feast or famine. There are usually many surveys available at once and then the site dries up for a couple of weeks. So you can’t expect to earn a steady income on this site. But then, I don’t think there’s a paid survey site out there where you can actually earn a steady income.
Click IQ is open to US residents only. They do not specify age, but request that you are the “decision maker” and in charge of the grocery shopping, so it’s really not a site for young people, unless there are teenagers out there who actually do grocery shopping. This is about as rare as finding a paid survey site in which to make a living.
I believe this site to be legitimate, but slow to pay. It does no harm to join, but do not expect to receive a check for at least two months.
