LinkedIn's Market Research Payout: $30-$150 Per Hour

How to get LinkedIn’s well-employed users to actually fill out market research surveys? Pay them a fair wage: The professional networking site tells AdAge that it’ll offer 50 cents to $2.50 per minute of your attention while you fill out surveys, in the form of “gift cards, charitable donations and opportunities to view survey results as rewards.” (That’s about $30 to $150 per hour.)

No wonder LinkedIn says solicited members have taken surveys 15% to 20% of the time they’ve been offered — higher than the single-digit rates survey takers usually expect.
