Question:  Why is Cint trying to contact me?

Answer:  Cint will contact you to correct issues with your survey.  Specifically, they will contact you if your survey contains any of the following:

  • Ask for personal contact information
  • Include logos in the survey
  • Use non-native language

Question:  Are there any restrictions on how I can setup my survey?

Answer: Yes/No well Maybe!  Other than the restrictions listed in the previous question, you really just need to think about your survey design.  Ask yourself when you test your survey does it have leading and or confusing questions.  Remember:  The more questions you have the more it will cost per response.

Question:  Does handle Screen Outs?

Answer:  No  But we're working on it!  The recommended approach is to deploy your surveys to a target group that meets your needs.  When we complete the screen out option you will be able to utilize questions within your survey to confirm and screen-out respondents that don't qualify for your survey.

Question:  How do I handle Quotas?

Answer: With the Cint interface, you can manage your quotas by purchasing the quantity of completed surveys based on the targeting options selected for your Target Group.  Cint will deploy your survey only to that defined Target Group.  When the respondent completes your survey they will be redirected to Cint's landing page and counted as a Complete.  You can purchase and deploy the same survey to multiple target groups (see the next question)

Question:  Can I purchase multiple target groups for the same survey?

Answer:  Yes.  When you purchase the first target group you can immediate purchase another group by clicking on the Purchase another group for this survey on the confirmation page or you can deploy the survey again and go thru the purchase process as before.
