I got a phone call last week with a request for me to participate in a focus group (where a group of people are asked about their attitude toward a product, service, idea, etc). They screened me to see if I qualified. After a successful screening, they told me that I would be paid $75 for my time. The focus group was to last about 1.5 hours and then you go on your merry way. I don’t know about you, but I don’t turn down a lot of money.
If you live in Atlanta or any other major city, then you can get in on the cash too. I found a list of market research companies online where you can sign up to be a part of their database. They use diverse groups of people so if you qualify then you could go to the focus group and get paid. Check out the websites listed below:
