Negative incentives can appear when somebody completed a survey in a manner considered unacceptable (bad or unethical). Below are some ways our clients define “bad” or “unethical” responses
Inconsistent or Inaccurate Answers
Open End Questions
At times customers will have a segment within a survey that asks for participants to fill in their answers by writing them in, rather than selecting an answer from a set of pre-identified responses. If a answer in Open Ended question is considered to contain language that is unacceptable, non-sensible, or not fitting for the question you will not be eligible for the survey, will not receive any incentive and may be terminated from the panel.
Red Herring questions
Our Clients, at times, will put queries in the survey several times or need that you choose a particular answer to ensure you are being truthful and/or reading the entire survey question. If our customer should find that your replies are unacceptable as per the red herring directive you will not be eligible for the survey, will not receive any incentive and may be terminated from the panel.
