Should I set up a new email box for online surveys?
That's a good question! In some ways it would be great to keep your survey invitations out of your regular mailbox. Depending on your demographics and the demographics that the online surveys are looking for, you may receive survey invitations frequently. A male friend of mine receives survey invites from one survey company nearly every day. When he has time, he goes through and decides which to respond to. Some companies will also send out newsletters. So YES, it may be a good idea to do this - especially if you are joining more than one online survey company.
On the flip side, you do need to remember to check this mailbox frequently. Sometimes surveys are only looking for a certain number of respondents. And sometimes they send out the invites to fill up the last few remaining quotas. You need to be quick if you want to respond to these surveys. Also, you don't want to miss any emails alerting you of a prize!
There is good and bad about using different email addresses. It is up to you whether you set up a dedicated mailbox for online surveys. You can always sign-up for online surveys using one email address and update your email address to another mailbox if it isn't working for you.
Regardless of whether you set up a dedicated email address or not, it's a good idea to add the online survey email to your safe senders or contact list. This way your emails will end up in your inbox rather than your junk mail. I also check my junk mail just to be sure something important isn't in there. I then delete all of the junk messages. They build up quickly.
