The Executive Advisory Board is a worldwide group of managers and executives (from managers, executives and directors of smaller companies to those in the largest corporations) who help shape the future through participating in online research surveys and online discussions. The knowledge and advice of Board Members help governmental agencies, universities, and major international corporations make better informed, more intelligent decisions about economic policies and business issues, as well as the products, systems and services provided to major corporations and other businesses.

Joining Executive Advisory Board is for free. As a member of the Executive Advisory Board, you would be paid for every online survey you complete (ranging from a minimum of $10 U.S. to $300 U.S. or more, depending on the length of the online survey). The money can be donated to a charity of your choice, or mailed directly to you. When you complete a very brief questionnaire (called a “screener”) to see if you qualify for a survey, you would always have an opportunity to win lucrative cash prizes in a drawing, regardless of whether you were selected to complete the survey. Also, just for being a member, your name would be entered each month in a drawing for $250 in cash prizes. The average survey takes about 10 to 12 minutes to complete. They strive to make every survey as short and simple as possible. Anyone who is an Executive, Manager or Director can become a member of the Executive Advisory Board. The typical member participates in 5 to 7 surveys per year.

A screening questionnaire is a short survey that contains no more than 15 questions. These questions may be about where you work your job responsibilities, etc. All of this helps them to determine whether your area of expertise lends itself to the topic of the survey. Be completely honest and frank when answering these screening questions, so that the questions they ask you pertain to your expert knowledge. Whenever you complete one of these a screening questionnaire, your name will be entered into a drawing for cash awards. When you are selected to participate in a survey, they will send you an email inviting you to participate.

If you have questions or feedback about Executive Advisory Board you can email them at: sjohnson@executiveadvisoryboard.com.
