Voice Out! is a market research panel specialising in both online and offline (or face-to-face) surveys, which is owned by Stratos Consulting Group Sdn Bhd, a market research and strategic consulting firm based in Malaysia.

Once you become a member of Voice Out!, you will be invited to participate in either online or face-to-face surveys. We will share survey invitation via an email, WhatsApp or call you depending on the mode of contact you have chosen during your registration with Voice Out!
For online surveys, invitations will also appear on your member dashboard.

These surveys are on average, paid between MYR 0.20-10 (or USD 0.05-2.5), although sometimes we will send you short surveys which helps us know you better, and are, as such, unpaid. This allows us to keep updating your profile to be able to send you relevant surveys of your specific interests.
For offline surveys such as face-to-face interviews and focus group discussions, payment is instant at the venue where we engaged with us.

The following are the general survey length for different types of survey:
• For online surveys, we aim to keep most surveys between 10-15 minutes.
• Focus groups typically are 90 minutes to two hours in length.
• Face-to-face surveys will take approximately 20 minutes to an hour.
The survey length will depend on the type of survey. There are times when you will get shorter or longer surveys depending on our needs. We will always inform you in the invitation e-mail on the expected completion time for each survey.
You can participate only once for the same survey. However, you can participate in as many other different surveys as you like.
Surveys are active for 2-14 days to collect the desired number of responses. Once the quota is full, the survey will automatically be closed.
A full quota means that the survey is filled within the targeted range. In order to avoid this, we recommend you to fill out the survey as soon as you receive an invite.
Some surveys are looking for a specific group of people who meet a very narrow set of demographic criteria. Sometimes, determining whether someone qualifies for a survey takes just a few questions, other times it may take more. Please know that we appreciate your participation and that when you do not qualify, your responses will not be used in the final research findings.
To increase the chances of qualifying for future online surveys, it is advisable to complete all of the member personal profile surveys.
