As a homeowner, I have to be a little bit of a DIYer whether I like it or not. I have to admit, my first foray was replacing all the light switches and door handles in my house. It was incredibly scary to start, but it was so satisfying to see my finished work – and it wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be. More recently, I replaced my doorbell that had stopped working, something that again was scary until I actually did it and realized how easy it was.
There is now a research panel for people like me, the light DIYer – and the more serious DIYers, too. It’s in its second year, gathering information for hardware companies and brands to get feedback directly from you. This includes product tests and surveys that are new product related, as well as some advertising and marketing feedback surveys.
The DIY Research Panel is not your average panel with hundreds of thousands in our database. They are specifically recruiting consumers like you, which means panelists have a VERY good chance of being selected for a survey or product test even if they are a novice DIYer. It sounds fun, doesn’t it?
This is the perfect way to give your opinion and earn a little extra money in the process. While we can’t share the sponsoring manufacturer so that you aren’t biased, trust me, they are great.
If you’re ready to join the panel, simply take this two-minute survey to see if you qualify to be a DIY Research Panel member. This will open you up to paid survey and product testing opportunities throughout the next year.
If you are one of the first 100 Panel members to qualify, you will receive your choice between a $5 Lowe’s gift card or $5 Home Depot Gift card!
I know sometimes I’m a little leery of signing up for panels because of privacy concerns, but the DIY Research Panel lays it out clearly.
We promise to never share or sell any personal information! Your name and contact information will only be shared with a brand(s) if you decide to take part in a product trial opportunity. It is often the case they will want to follow-up with you about your product test report. Most of our surveys and product trials are active projects under development. It is because of this, that we ask for your confidentiality. Based on the feedback from DIY Panel Members, products under development could change significantly between test and launch. At the end of the qualification survey, panelists will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement.
All you need to do is follow the link to the DIY Product Survey and if you’re one of the first 100 qualified applicants through this link, you’ll get that $5 Lowe’s or Home Depot gift card. So do it quickly!
In the interest of full disclosure, I was compensated for writing this post. All opinions remain my own.
