With the development of the Internet, network questionnaire survey has become an independent project. According to statistics, in 2020 alone, the United States will spend more than $60 billion on prize investigations. In recent years, affected by the epidemic, people's consumption habits have changed dramatically, and more and more enterprises and institutions have increased the launch of prize questionnaires to better understand people's consumption willingness.
However, when people participate in overseas questionnaire projects, there is a serious polarization of feedback. Some people think that overseas questionnaire survey is a new development opportunity, while others do not get substantial return, calling it "cutting leeks". There are two main reasons for this phenomenon.
First, the problem of individual cognitive ability. When contacting the questionnaire, we need to think from the perspective of the question maker, analyze the purpose and way of thinking of the question maker first, and then give targeted answers. For example, if the questionnaire involves women's cosmetics, the questionnaire should be filled out as a female consumer. If you fill in men directly in the gender section, the questionnaire is likely to be considered invalid and excluded.
Secondly, the account management problem. Questionnaires have certain requirements for IP addresses, and users usually need to use multiple accounts to obtain questionnaires. Therefore, multiple IP addresses need to be used to match each account, otherwise it is easy to lose access to publicly available data. During the process of preparing accounts, obtaining questionnaires, and submitting questionnaires, users need to keep IP addresses consistent. If you blindly continue to grab and fill out questionnaires, you may eventually find that your efforts are in vain.
Proxy IP can play an important role in solving these problems. Proxy IP is a technique for forwarding network requests through a proxy server that can hide the real IP address and simulate different geographic locations. In the survey service, the proxy IP address has the following advantages:
Provide multiple IP addresses: Proxy IP service providers usually have a large number of IP resources, and users can choose different IP addresses to match multiple accounts. This can avoid being unable to continue to participate in the survey due to the blocking of a single IP address.
Implement IP consistency: Proxy IP addresses provide stable IP addresses and ensure IP consistency during preparation, obtaining, and submitting questionnaires. This helps users conduct surveys smoothly and avoid problems caused by IP switching.
Improve poll validity: By using proxy IP addresses, users can simulate IP addresses in different geographical locations to better meet survey requirements. For example, in an overseas survey, a proxy IP can be used to obtain a survey for a specific region, increasing the accuracy and credibility of the answer.
Improve data collection efficiency: Proxy IP can realize concurrent requests and improve the efficiency of data collection. Users can use multiple proxy IP addresses to capture and fill out questionnaires at the same time, speeding up data collection.
To sum up, proxy IP plays an important role in the survey business. It can help users solve the problems of personal cognitive ability and account management, provide multiple IP addresses and maintain the consistency of IP addresses, so as to improve the effectiveness of the questionnaire and the efficiency of data collection. Through the rational use of proxy IP, the users participating in the questionnaire survey can better grasp the opportunity and get more returns.
