VIP Voice is a rebranded version of an older site called NPD Online and at first glance the site does look appealing. Certainly, the company has spent time making their site look professional and modern, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that the site itself is any good.
First of all, VIP Voice is a little different than most survey sites. You don’t earn a certain amount of money per survey. Instead, you earn entries into sweepstakes competitions.
In fact, there is no way to earn actual money from the site unless you win the competitions. Even then, most of the sweepstakes are for prizes rather than money. With sweepstakes, there is a chance that you will win something, but an even greater chance that you will be working for nothing at all.
The sweepstakes approach also means you have to put a lot of trust into the company that you are working with. You have no way of knowing what the real odds of winning a prize actually are or how much work you will have to do to get there.
This approach also makes it very easy for the company to manipulate you.
For example, you don’t really know the processes behind the sweepstakes, so you can’t know whether they are fair or not. That can be pretty frustrating. This also means that you could be doing surveys for the company every day for years without ever actually winning anything.
It’s also worth remembering that really, it is in the company’s best interest for few people to win its sweepstakes. After all, most companies would like the idea of having people work for them for free.
VIP Voice consistently received bad reviews for its service. For example, the site Survey Police rated the service at just under two stars. Survey Police is a good place to get an indication of the strength of an online survey site, because the rating is a collation of ratings from actual users.
One of the biggest complaints was what I talked about earlier – a low chance of actually winning. For example, one person noted that they had been with the site for seven years, yet had never actually won anything.
The overall low rating for the site (across 56 reviews!) is a strong indication that most people using the site never actually won anything.
A second site, Reviewopedia also had a low rating for the site, also giving it less than two stars.
In both cases, many of the reviews were based off older versions of the site, with some reviews being written in 2010 or earlier. Nevertheless, there were still some recent reviews and most of the reviews had similar perspectives.
VIP Voice might look good at first glance, but the site has some pretty major issues. For example, this is part of one of the pages that I have access to:
I’m guessing the message here was something about looking in the junk email box for emails from the company, but I don’t know as the message is completely unreadable.
While I’m on that topic… I never actually received the activation email from the company either. That’s another major issue, because without the activation email it isn’t actually possible to do the surveys from the company.
Surveys In General
VIP Voice is just one survey site and there are a huge number of them online nowadays.
Survey sites tend to be popular, because people often see them as easy ways to earn money. Unfortunately, they rarely are.
In general, survey sites allow you to earn a little bit of money for a lot of work. Frequently, surveys might earn you $1 or less, and take anywhere from a minute to half hour (and in some cases longer).
With VIP Voice, you are earning even less than that, because you are just relying on winning competitions. Based on the reviews and on sweepstakes in general, it seems that your odds of actually winning anything at all with VIP Voice are very low.
