Today I will be bringing to you a Forthright Surveys review and will be taking you through all that you would need to know about them.
Completing surveys is a growing industry online with many new people taking the time out to fill out there views and opinions on various different products and services.
I have reviewed over 300 survey panels up to now and today I will be taking a closer look at a another one called Forthright which like others gives you the opportunity to make money doing surveys.
However its not all perfect and straightforward which is what you will find out in this review so make sure to read until the end.
Forthright is a US based survey panel that offers members an opportunity to earn rewards from thier opinions. You may not be familiar with them as the name is still quite new, as they were previously known as InnPoll. They are also operated by a company Bovitz Inc, this partnership hasn't changed over the years.
From what I can see the panel is only open to US residents and you can sign up by clicking the green join us button in the top right of the page. This will require you to use your email address which you will then need to verify by clicking the link sent to your inbox.
The main and only way to make money with Forthright is through there surveys, so unlike other survey panels out there you won't find a referral program to help increase your earnings further. They do also have other research projects that you could get invited to which consist of product testing and mobile/video surveys as well.
From first impressions it does sound like they pay at a good rate, they say you can expect to receive between $1 and $5 for each survey you complete. The amount you get does vary from survey you will known how much you will get paid before you get into one.
Most people would look at that amount and not be impressed however the amounts I have just shown is the standard rate that you will find with most survey sites. You won't earn $50+ a survey like some panels claim (often fake/scam) but instead will be earning what is essentially extra cash.
After you have completed a survey your earnings will be sent straight to your email. You get to choose your preference which consist of PayPal, Bitcoin, Amazon, Tango, Bank Payments and the option to donate to charity.
Interestingly after you have done a chosen study you won't need to complete more to get paid as there is no minimum threshold system in place.
There isn't a lot of features that stand out to me with Forthright as to me they look just like your average survey panel, that is apart from the negative aspects I am about to talk about.
If there is one thing I can say is that the amount they are awarding per survey does seem quite fair with a min of $1 and max of $5. It does seem like generally you can expect to receive right in between that amount for every survey you do which sounds good.
I have taken so many surveys on sites that I have almost lost count, but I can tell by now how much makes a survey worth your time and effort. When I first started taking surveys I was getting paid roughly a dollar or more per survey. I know its not the best but I considered it for the effort required to be worth my time and I can understand also why some people would disagree.
Any complaint where payouts aren't being made are always concerning and I saw this as a repetitive complaint when looking at the reviews made by their members.
The problem here is that people are completing surveys and getting to the end of them only to not receive any money. I'm not sure if this is a glitch on the system as its happened to me before where a survey breaks at the end or doesn't redirect you back to the right page, with that said its still concerning and some members have wasted there time.
Again another thing I picked on is that some reviews were positive and some were negative and I didn't come across a couple in a row that were positive or negative so it seems as though the opinions are split. From the good reviews they were content with the payouts and surveys and labelled the site to be 'fair' where as the bad reviews often used the words 'fake' and 'avoid'.
I understand that everything out there on the internet is going to have some negative reviews, with Forthright it is 50/50 so its hard to say whether or not they are well regarded or not.
The last point I would like to talk about is the amount of money you can make from these sites. In the FAQ's they say that you can take as many surveys as you want and can. However you are only given a selected few in your dashboard to work with, so despite saying that your earning potential is still limited.
This isn't just for forthright this goes for most survey sites out there that there tends to be set amount you can make. I have managed to make upwards of $500 a month with some sites however it is time consuming and with those sites specifically I was offered lots of ways to earn so I never really ran out of things to do.
For a site like Forthright you only have the surveys to complete and that's it so you could make an extra $10 to $20 a month depending on the invites you get as the surveys do pay okay.
Be Forthright is a survey panel that is hard to call when it comes to its legitimacy, they are quite established and were fairly well known when they were called Innopoll. The complaints I have talked about are quite a worry as you it seems that there is a inconsistency when it comes to crediting surveys.
The decision on whether you sign up is up to you and with all the aspects I have talked about I wouldn't recommend them. I try to come up to a decision by asking myself whether I would risk it and since the answer is no I wouldn't advise you to risk it either as you may end up wasting your time.
There are many survey sites out there that won't end with loosing all your time and earning nothing in return. If you are still interesting in making a side income through completing surveys I would recommend you check out this list of Best Survey Sites In The US that I have put together.
