    I’ve been a part of a few focus groups and I have to agree that they are more profitable than regular surveys. Plus, I got to take part in conversations that actually concerned me and feel like my voice was heard. It’s a great way to make a difference.

    I actually participated in a focus group regarding my college program (it is a fairly new program). Easiest money I ever made. These sessions really are a great tool for product and service providers, they can raise issues those involved with providers may not have thought of, or allow people to think of outside-of-the-box and come up with better solutions.

    ordinary surveys(online ) does not seems to be encouraging as so many screen outs and good number of companies screen out after taking all necessary details including the product opinion .The companies who are genuine is providing only market points (eg- global test market).I searched for these focus groups but could not find any lead online

      Most focus groups are done in person; you really won’t find them online unless perhaps you’re invited to a private online study to participate in after they selected you. Best to check with market research firms in your area.

    Focus groups are better than paid surveys because it can give more accurate data. It is also a good part time job for students or for people who are looking for extra income. But, joining a focus group is not easy because there are certain criteria that should be met first to ensure the reliability of their data.

    From what I understand here in the article, I think focus groups can be more interesting than just taking surveys since it requires interaction with the other members. Also, it offers better pay, so I guess it’s an ideal job for those with a lot of time to spare. Nice!

      Hi Margareth, you don’t need a lot of time to spare in order to participate in paid focus groups. This is designed to be done in your spare-time, typically after working hours and sometimes on weekends. Also, keep in mind that some paid focus groups can even be done by phone, conference calls, video conferencing, online, etc. Paid focus groups is a flexible earning opportunity that many people just are unaware of. But nevertheless, paid focus groups are going on all around us every single day because businesses rely on this data in order to improve and stay in business. Your opinions are valuable!

    As someone who completes online surveys, uses apps like Shopkick and clips all possible coupons every week while grocery shopping, focus groups sound like something I’d really enjoy taking part in. They do seem to compensate quite well. Being involved in a prequalifying study would be very beneficial and save a lot of possible frustration. While many online surveys have qualifying questions, I cannot say how many times I have been “kicked out” of a questionnaire after getting through the qualifying questions, likely because I answered something “incorrectly.” Since that is not the case with focus groups, it is much more likely that each person’s opinion will be taken into consideration and used to further the product/service, etc.

    I really don’t know much about focus groups but you have shed a lot of light on it. I have never bEen in one and would not mind being a part of such a group.

  • Lisa

    I would love to be a part of a focus group! The monetary pay seems so much better than a simple survey. I will check these out! Would love to get paid up to 250 for a survey. Sure would come in handy!

  • EMSandoval

    Focus group discussions require more than just Yes or No answers or ticking boxes for a choice like what is done in surveys. You actually need an opinion on things so more is required of a participant. That’s why companies are also more stringent in choosing participants for focus groups. And it is only right that they compensate them higher.
