Tutorial  paid surveys
Generally speaking you should receive your first paid survey within the first week or two. It really depends on your "profile" (male or female, your location, etc.) and the current needs of our clients. You're not going to be eligible for every survey, because some surveys are targeted towards either men or women, or those who live in a certain area, etc. For example, if you're a women and the current survey is about men and their grooming habits, you won't be invited to take that survey. Upon registering, you will receive an email inviting you to participate if you qualify for the current survey. If you don't receive an email notification, you should also login to your account to double-check just in case you do not receive the email invitation for some reason (due to your ISP's spam filters, etc).
