The site "Freelance Switch" is conducting the "First Annual Global Freelancer Survey for 2007". It's very important that everybody who works as a freelancer take the survey, you can even be rewarded with a Nintendo Wii.

By taking part in the Global Freelancer Survey you will be rewarded in three ways:

Detailed Statistics After the survey is complete we will be posting an abridged version of some results on FreelanceSwitch.com, however respondents who complete the survey will be emailed a COMPLETE set of information and data from the survey. I.e. you'll get exclusive data that non-respondents don't get!

Random Prize Draw … and we have prizes. That’s right, fabulous prizes! We’ve put together the ultimate freelancer kit from Amazon for one lucky winner who will be drawn at random from the pool of respondents. The prize pack includes:

  • A Balance Ball Chair from Gaiam. Balance ball chairs give you stability while encouraging proper posture. Plus they’re bouncy so you can burn calories while you work!
  • A Microsoft Natural Ergo Keyboard 4000. This keyboard will help you fend off the evil RSI.
  • Studio Monitor/dj Headphone. This headphone is a gem for anyone who needs to block out distractions, as it delivers superior sound while blocking outside noise. If you have kids, noisy neighbors, or an overexcited schnauzer in the house, you will love it.
  • Caffeine for the Creative Mind: 250 Exercises to Wake Up Your Brain. We all need a little creative wake up call once in a while, and this book is just the ticket.
  • Western Digital 60 GB USB External Hard Drive. It’s sleek, black and sexy, and it also holds all your bits and pieces. Every freelancer needs some heavy duty back-up, and this baby will do the business.
  • And finally, what I want for my birthday, a Nintendo Wii!!! These will provide not only a great break after a hard day’s freelancing, but will also get you off your butt after sitting on your balance ball chair all day long.
  • The random prizedraw will be drawn at the sole discretion of FreelanceSwitch.com and be awarded in the form of an Amazon.com voucher delivered by email. The prize will be drawn on the same day the survey results are announced, which is a date yet to be determined. You must provide a valid email address when completing the survey to be eligible, and you must be contactable on that email address within 96 hours of the prize draw or the prize will be drawn again.
