Lab42 is a Chicago-based market research company that was started in August 2010. Backed by venture capitalist firm Sandbox Industries, Lab42 gives third-party sites the ability to pay their members for answering surveys and doing mystery shopping.
Lab42 works with companies to help them know their markets and audiences better. To achieve that goal, Lab42 conducts market research. Part of those initiatives are the surveys and other earning opportunities that Lab 42 presents to surveys sites and their members.
As mentioned above, the surveys that Lab42 creates aren’t available on their own site. Instead, these surveys are made available on other surveys sites. Members of these sites may also be invited to participate in unique or one-off research studies. Lab42 also conducts research activities on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
Payouts will depend on the specific site being used, but rewards generally include cash and Amazon gift cards.
