    Re: $50 Paid Research - Welding Equipment Purchase Decision Process

    I had a great call with Christian yesterday (my original Tuesday time slot didn't work out). They are conducting market research - what I gleaned was for the small business / hobbyist market. Among other things they were interested in my thoughts on brand perceptions and awareness, cost versus quality, local support versus online, etc.

    The questions were well thought out and I enjoyed visiting with their rep.

    Re: $50 Paid Research - Welding Equipment Purchase Decision Process

    I had an interview with Christian this morning. Very professional, asked several specific questions and some general questions. No personal info required. The interview seems focused on hobby/new welders and how we make purchasing decisions- what is important like brand, price, availability, etc..

    I already received the promised $50 so I can vouch for this being legitimate.

    Got mine immediately after I hung up. Pretty easy money, just talking about welders.
