Gransnet are looking for grandparents willing to join the Gransnet and Mumsnet "Grandparents Research Panel"
Here are a few Q&As
Q: How does the panel work? A: You sign up (below) and give your details. When we are commissioned to conduct research we will contact panel members that fit the research criteria. Panel members will be sent either a link to a survey to complete or an invitation to take part in an online discussion, or the opportunity to take part in a product test and offer feedback either on Gransnet or in a survey.
Q: Is there an incentive? A: Our mantra is always - never ask anyone to do something you wouldn't do;) So there will always be an incentive to take part in each activity, usually in the form of entry into a prize draw. If we ask you to complete a third party survey (eg hosted by a research agency) then you may need to provide your email address to them for the prize draw. They will only use this for the prize draw.
Q: How often will I be contacted? A: It's hard to say, but you will be able to choose whether you take part or not, and can opt out of the panel at any time.
Q: Can anyone join the panel? A: This panel is aimed at grandparents. This is because we (at Gransnet and sometimes at Mumsnet) are working with a number of companies who are interested in conducting research amongst grandparents.
Q: Can I leave the panel? A: Yes - you can opt out at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: What if I'm sent a product I don't like? A: Then you would add your feedback accordingly.
Q: What will happen to my name and address? A: When a company wants the panel to try a product we will send them names and addresses for dispatch. We will not send on your email address or phone number. They will be asked to ensure that they only use the address for this project and not for any other purpose.
