What’s The Deal With Surveys? [Smiley360 Membership Guide]

 

Smiley360 Membership Guide

We’re really into surveys at Smiley360. In case you’ve ever wondered why they’re such a big part of being a Smiley member, we’re here to explain!

Our Survey Says…

We send short surveys to help match you with the right Missions. We typically ask questions about your likes, dislikes, habits and opinions to tell if a product is right for you.

This could come in many forms:

  1. Instant Qualification Survey: Take a short survey to see if you qualify for a new Mission. Simply answer the questions honestly and if you qualify, you’ll find out right away!
  2. Future Qualification Survey: Take a short survey for a new Mission launching at some point in the future (usually within a few weeks.) If you qualify, you’ll be surprised with a new Mission offer when the Mission launches!
  3. Background Survey: If you have qualified for a new Mission, you will need to take a Background survey before you can accept your offer. This asks a few simple questions about your previous use of the brand and competitors to that brand. Your answers to this survey do not affect your qualification for the Mission.
  4. Community Survey: Take a Community survey about a special topic, which could lead to a new Mission in the future.

Final Surveys

Smiley360_surveyiconAnother type of survey you’ll see on every Mission is the final survey. At the end of your Mission, the final survey will appear on your Dashboard. It exists so that we can compare your opinion on the product before the Mission versus after! Take 2 minutes to complete it after every Mission and we’ll award you with 10 points.

Your Data

We only ever use your survey responses for our Missions. It is never used for any other purpose or sold to any third party.

Please rate your opinion on this blog post between 1 and 10, where 1 is… just kidding! But do leave your comments below—we love to hear from you!

How to Write a Quality Product Review

 

Smiley360 Membership Guide

smiley connect

Smiley360 is powered by product reviews. The reason we’re able to send you products for free is because in return, we get your feedback on those products—and that’s valuable. Your reviews matter to us, the brands and other consumers.

For that reason, we encourage you to write the best quality reviews possible. What do we mean by that? A quality review is:

  1. detailed
  2. informative
  3. helpful
  4. authentic
  5. honest

If your review is all of these things, it helps other consumers make a decision on whether or not they should spend their hard-earned money on a product.

Writer’s Block?

When writing a product review, it’s easy to get stumped on what to say. We find that it helps to ask ourselves questions such as: Continue reading

Smiley360 Membership Guide: Share A Link

 

Smiley360 Membership Guide

Last week we covered the Face2Face Sharing Tool, showing you how you can share your Smiley Missions by having conversations with people in real life. If you missed that lesson, you can catch up here.

The next Sharing Tool is also the one that Smiley members ask us about the most: the ‘Share a Link’ tool.

Let’s break it down, shall we?

One-Page Fact Sheet

For each of your Missions, you will have a special link to share with friends, family and other people online. Clicking on this link will lead people to a one-page fact sheet all about your Mission.

Some of us learn best with examples, so take a look at these three Mission links:

  1. ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Toothpaste
  2. TAZO Chai Tea
  3. Seventh Generation™ Natural Hand Wash

After looking at those, you’ve probably learned about each of those products, and maybe you saw a coupon or other offer you might want to take advantage of. That’s the point of these links: to give Smiley members a tool to easily show what their Mission is all about.

Sharing These Links With Friends

Now let’s get to the good stuff—earning points!

For every person who clicks on your unique link, you will earn one point, up to a maximum of 10.

I hear you asking, “but how do I get those clicks”?! You can share your link anywhere and everywhere online. Some of the most popular methods include:

  • Via email to friends and family members.
  • In Instant Messaging conversations (such as Gchat, Facebook chat, Skype and AIM)
  • Within Facebook groups (or other online groups) of which you are a member
  • In posts on your blog (if you run a blog)
  • Posting comments on relevant blog posts from others
  • Link sharing sites such as Reddit and StumbleUpon
  • Create pins on Pinterest that link back to your Mission
  • Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter and any other sites or apps you like to use

share a link

Simply click ‘Copy to clipboard’ to copy the link, then paste it wherever you’d like to share. You can also simply highlight the link, right-click (or command click on Macs) to copy and paste.

So you see, sharing this link helps you get the word out about your Mission in virtually every corner of the internet. We know you will be able to use at least one of the methods mentioned above!

That’s It For This Week!

Next week, we’ll go through the fifth Sharing Tool—Smiley Connect—and share tips for writing a good quality review of a product you’ve received. Until then… thanks for reading. We look forward to your comments!
