I joined Ipsos iSay Influencers. How can I take part in the live research events?

If we have a live study that we think might be a good fit for you, we’ll invite you to take a qualifying survey. If you are a good match for the study, then we’ll ask if you’d like to take part. You can access these qualifying surveys simply by taking Ipsos iSay surveys on our website, through email, or in our app.

Be sure to keep your profiling surveys up to date. Completing your profile helps us match you to more relevant studies, including qualifying surveys for live research events.

I took a survey and qualified for a real-time research study, so why wasn’t I chosen to take part?

Not everyone who qualifies will ultimately be selected for the live event part of the study. It depends on how many other qualified participants took the survey. Please keep taking surveys – we conduct new research events regularly!

I have signed up for a live research study. When is it taking place?

After you are invited to and sign up for the live study, we will send you a confirmation email with the details, including date, time, and duration of the study. We encourage you to arrive 10 minutes before the start of the live online study so that we can start on time.

How do I access the live study or webcam group that I signed up for?

You will receive a confirmation email with detailed instructions, including a link to join the study and an access code. The link may not be active until shortly before the study begins. We encourage you to arrive 10 minutes before the start of the live online study so that we can start on time.

What if I am unable to participate or no longer wish to take part in a live study that I have signed up for?

Should you change your mind and not wish to participate, please simply disregard the reminder emails that you receive before the live study. Afterward, you will not be contacted further by Ipsos regarding that specific project.

When can I expect to receive my bonus points after completing the live research?

Thank you for your participation in the live research. Please be aware that your bonus points should be awarded within 15 business days after the lab day.

Can I take photos/videos during the live research and share the content with my acquaintances or on social media?

It's very important to remember that the content of all Ipsos iSay studies is considered confidential information and is subject to the Ipsos iSay Terms and Conditions. This strictly prohibits the disclosure of any media content, including pictures or videos, on social media platforms. Please ensure to abide by this policy to protect the confidentiality of our work.

What do I have to consider regarding my participation in live research where using the webcam is obligatory?

It's important to ensure that you are dressed appropriately and in a quiet environment when you switch on your webcam for a meeting. Please avoid busy environments like cars or outdoor locations to maintain the quality and professionalism of the meeting.

As a parent who has given permission for my child to participate in specific studies, who is expected to participate in these studies?

If you've provided consent for your child's participation in certain studies, it's important that the child, not the parent, takes part in the study. This is due to the fact that prior permission was sought and given specifically for the child's involvement.
