Paid missions for honest opinions
I just finished my first mission on Dscout and it was a great way to make a few extra bucks. For each mission you fill out an application and based on your eligibility you may be selected to participate in a mission. If you are, you will fill out survey type questions and take 30-60 second videos of yourself giving your honest opinion on something. You also may have to take a screen recording on your phone and describe what you are doing and why. You are given a specific amount of time to complete the mission and all its parts but you can do so on your own time. Each entry for each mission only takes a few minutes to complete and you can take your time and do the entries in steps. This is by far my favorite app to make some extra cash.
Seems cool but I’m confused
I joined dscout about a month or 2 ago and I was very excited as I had heard amazing things about it. I got 3 “missions” as soon as I joined the app and submitted my application the next day with what I thought were very thorough answers and a good quality video ( good lighting, blank wall behind me, microphone attached to my shirt, etc) that I tried very hard on. I had heard from reviews that sometimes you don’t get the first things you apply for even if the application was really good. I also heard that you might not get a yes/no response until about a month after. I wasn’t too concerned about these things, I just thought I would eventually get one. It has been at least a month and a half and I have gotten no responses at all. I would have been fine with a simple no (as I understand that not everyone can get a mission and I just probably wasn’t the best option) but I have gotten nothing back. So now I am confused, did I just not get the job or have they not made their decision yet? Since the first three I have gotten around 3 or 4 new mission applications and I have not heard about any of them since. All I want to know is, am I doing something wrong? On a positive note, besides that I absolutely love the app and the concept. I would love to start being able to use it all the time.
I hope I can get a answer soon.
Curious how many people who fill out the initial surveys ever get compensated...
This is an interesting app with a useful premise: helping companies creat products that people actually like and use. However, the way that it is set up is much like dangling a carrot in front of a horse to get you (the company) where you want to go and I wonder how many horses (the users) actually get the carrot ($$). Many of the applications for “missions” require a lot of information and answers to survey questions upfront. I’m sure companies are getting lots of free information and buy in from potential users so this app is probably very valuable for them. I just wonder how many people actually get compensated and if it is worth the time of filling out all of the surveys when there is no monetary guarantee and you’re providing so much personal information. Also, sending video messages in response to intimate questions into a void feels awkward and impersonal and might not the best way to connect with users. Again, I’m sure it’s great for companies to get that video feedback but it’s a lot to ask of users when they are not being compensated.
