“They couldn’t influence their way out of a wet paper bag.”
— words once uttered by a wise blogger friend on those who believe they have influence versus actual influencers
Despite overwhelming evidence of prizes available to those who have opinions and package them in the right way, too many of us still spend our time giving away something for nothing.
Our opinions should hold value (we all know at least one thing no one else does) —they’re one of the key defining things separating us from the crowd, but in this age of oversharing we’ve somehow convinced ourselves that the power of our thoughts is but a fleeting thing… that no idea’s original and we lack the individual power to make any real change in this world.
And that’s where I’d tell you you’re completely wrong, and that the time to think about what even the thoughts that seem the most innocuous can do for you is long overdue.
Which is exactly why you should join the Ipsos i-Say online survey rewards community and share your opinion for some awesome prizes!

Surveys have been around since the dawn of the digital age, giving people convenient ways to gather information in sizeable volumes without spending the time and energy needed to knock on every door in the neighbourhood to get it. You’ve likely filled out a survey or two in your lifetime, and what do you usually get for it? A pat on the back with a screen that says “thanks for replying”, or at best, a $5 gift card for that local coffee shop you frequent—the one where the java’s usually burnt, but you hit it like clockwork because it’s so darn convenient.
But what if I told you that you could do better? What if I told you that by investing just a few minutes’ time, you can earn points redeemable for all sorts of prizes, all in exchange for your opinions, which will help shape and influence the actions that decision makers take every day? And we’re not talking some knickknacks or useless baubles either—between gift card, charity donations, and sweepstakes for things like travel, tech and more, there’re far worse ways to use your time in front of the screen!
So the next time you reach for that phone for a little vaguebooking, subtweeting, or however else you want to make yourself known to the digital world, stop and think of a better alternative where you can get something for your time and thinking! Your opinions are worth far more than nothing: they’re your key to getting your hands on the kinds of things that can actually make a difference in your life.
