The TrustScore Explained


The higher your rank in TrustScore, the more things you have been doing that add value to ICS as a ecosystem. ICS gives you cash rewards as it supplies real, honest to goodness quality market research to the customers of our parent website, AskYourTargetMarket.com. You see, when you register here anonymously, you allow us to occasionally feed you some real market research questions which are sent specifically to you and other members who share your demographics as entered into your ICS account. If those entries in your account are bogus or your survey answers don't reflect your candid opinions, then the value of our service to our customers is diminished. The end result of bogus demographics and random answers to surveys is that our service is not helpful to our customers, most of whom are small business people trying to survive this recession and create jobs. They'll stop using our service and we won't have prize money for ICS. (( So, please double check that your demographics are correct and always take the time to give your most candid answers to surveys whenever the selection of answers allows. We know... sometimes the selection of answers doesn't fit you but just do the best with what you're presented. We all experience this situation.


In order to improve what was formally the TrustScore system, we no longer count whether or not you give the same answer twice on the fun opinion type questions written by ICS members and ICS. So, don't worry if you changed your mind or you can't remember what your opinion was on some minor and forgettable detail. Your consistency does count if you happen to see a market research survey twice. If we ask you a direct question about your declared demographics such as "You live in California, T|F" and you get it it wrong or right, this affects your rank up or down. We may also test your demographics indirectly with other questions and they count as well. There are other checks and balances in the system. Everyone is treated fairly by TrustScore and mistakes here and there will happen to all of us and average out in the long run. So don't worry about every little event. Be candid, be real, be yourself and you'll be a star.
