FocusGroup.com deals with market research and has been around for over thirty years (it was established in 1988). As its name implies, the site is all about putting together focus groups in the name of data collection and analysis. The research involved could either be conducted in person, over the phone or online as per the survey requirements. People who are often tapped for this kind of feedback include health care professionals, and also consumers in general.
Membership to Focus Group is free but open to US residents only. The tasks are assigned according to what the study needs. Some screening is involved before getting an invitation to participate.
Personal focus group participants will get paid straight away with a check, while those performing online surveys can cash out once they reach 2000 points or the equivalent of $20. The rewards from FocusGroup.com include gift cards from Amazon, prepaid Visa cards, Sweepstakes entries, and cash.
