What is Guestlist?

It is a website containing a selection of polls, discussion forums and surveys. Created by the Sony Music Insight team, it's a way for you to express your opinions on a range of topics from music to media, technology to brands. Your feedback will be used to inform decisions made by Sony Music and its artists, labels, and partner companies.
You will be invited to participate in specially selected surveys we feel are relevant to you and your interests.
We will produce regular newsletters to update you on feedback gathered and any changes that have been made as a result of your input.

Why should I join Guestlist?

As well as having the opportunity to influence decisions made by Sony Music artists, labels and partner companies, and express your opinions on a range of subjects, you'll also earn points which you can use to turn into bandit.fm rewards.

Is registration free?

Registration on Guestlist is entirely free, and you will never be asked for any payment.

Now I've joined Guestlist, what happens next?

Once you have joined Guestlist as a panel member you will be sent survey invitations to your email address from time to time. Clicking on a link in the invitation email will take you directly to the survey.

How often will I be invited to take part in online surveys?

It all depends on your profile. You could receive anything up to 2 invitations per week, but usually it won't be this many. You are free to take part in as many of the surveys you are invited to participate in as you wish.

In general, how long does an online survey take?

A survey lasts on average 5 to 15 minutes. We try to ensure that all the surveys will be as short, simple and relevant as possible.

Will you try to sell me something?

No, the information you share with us is purely for market research purposes. Under no circumstances will these surveys make you use or recommend a product or service nor will we attempt to promote a product or service through a survey.

How long do I have to answer?

Usually you have 2 - 3 days to answer the survey. The email invitation to the survey will let you know the closing date of the survey.

What incentives are available?

For each completed survey you will earn points to turn into Band.FM Rewards. Take a look at the rewards page to find out more.

What will you do with the information I share with you?

Guestlist collects some personal data about each member for a number of reasons. First, it enables us to contact you about research to take part in. Secondly, it enables us to contact you with just those surveys which are relevant to you. Thirdly, it helps us to analyse our survey data by for example, your gender, age, or what region you live in. When this is done, the results will be shown only in aggregated form (i.e. everyone's answers added together) and it will not be possible for any individual respondent to be identified from the results.

Sony Music takes the security of your personal data very seriously and abides by the UK Data Protection Act 1998. This means that your data will be secure and will never be passed on to third parties without your permission.

Who reads the findings?

The research will be used internally by Sony Music to inform us about what you want from us and our artists, labels and partner companies. In all cases, the results will be viewed at an aggregate level only and no individual respondent will be identifiable in any way.

Will I get spam as a result of signing up to Guestlist

No. The panel has been created purely for market research purposes and your personal data will not be shared with or sold to third parties. Your contact details will only be used by Sony Music to contact you for research purposes.
