Researchers Who Trust Connect
The Connect platform has been a game changer for me! The Teams feature saves quite a bit of work, I highly recommend it!
Associate Professor of Marketing
Carnegie Mellon University
As far as my dissertation, the pre-tests surrounding my legitimacy manipulation worked wonderfully. I was really impressed with Connect’s UI and participant bounce-back tracking, which was an issue with my previous attempt over the summer on MTurk.
University of Wyoming
Now that I’ve experienced CloudResearch’s Connect, I’m never using Mturk again!
P.S. This is NOT a paid advertisement, I swear. I just can’t believe everyone passed all of my attention checks for once…
This platform is great, it’s super fast and almost everyone passes attention checks!

Connect has the highest data quality I’ve ever gotten! I’m not sure how you do it, but it’s incredible.

I’ve used Connect quite a bit, and I’ve found it to be a very good platform! It’s easy to use and the data are quite good when looking at open-ended responses and attention checks. I’ve also collected data that targeted Republicans and Democrats, and that worked well too! Thank you all for your work on this platform!

Connect combines best-in-class researcher tools with an outstanding panel of attentive and reliable survey respondents. The team’s customer support is also exceptional. The new Teams feature makes it easy for collaborators on joint projects to field surveys without complicated workarounds or compromising the security of your accounts. I have integrated it into my workflow on all of my new projects on Connect.

My experience with Connect has been phenomenal. They provided highly tailored and practical features in identifying, recruiting, and rewarding a specific group of participants for my longitudinal research project on suicidal ideation, helping me collect high-quality data while ensuring participants’ privacy. I am confident that Connect is the best crowdsourcing platform for online research available on the market.

Connect is a great way to get attentive participants very quickly.
St. Joseph’s University
CloudResearch helped me recruit a specialized and overlooked population to research the health needs of older sexual minority women who self-identify as having disabilities. The data I obtained was high-quality, with only four responses missing. I’ve recommended CloudResearch to other scholars as a result, and I look forward to using them again!

I’ve used Connect since it first came around, and it has become my first stop for data collection. The interface is seamless, the pricing is fair, and the quality of participants is on par with–if not better than other online samples I use. The data get collected very quickly, and the team behind the website are very responsive and helpful. Five Stars all around!”
