We found that even a really obnoxious, intrusive survey will get good
results if the user feels that he will be rewarded appropriately (with good
content) and not penalized (by adverse publication of "private"
information). Users know that their input is valuable -- as is the attention
they pay to advertising.

A really extreme example of exactly how valuable user surveys and
"advertisee" attention really is can be seen in one of the systems like Gold
Mail or Juno, which reward the user, either by money or services, for his
participation in the advertising campaign.

Paying attention is the coin of the realm.
