Attending Focus Groups

Who would be interested in attending focus groups?

Do you love to look at new products? Do you like to voice your opinion? We need you to register with us and start attending focus groups and other paid research activities for us!!

If you are interested in attending focus groups and other paid market research activities, please register your details online, or call us on (03) 9599-4200 or (02) 8064-7505.

Why should I take part?

As a consumer, your opinion about a company’s products and services is very valuable to these companies. By attending focus groups, you get to contribute to the improvement and development of new and existing products and services, and you get paid great cash incentives for your time, effort and opinions.

How much do I get paid and how?

Payments vary based on the duration and criteria of the group. Generally, you will be paid at the conclusion of the market research in cash or in the form of gift voucher, before leaving the premises.

Where does this happen?

Research sessions occur at a number of locations around Australia. We are constantly looking for people living in any part of Australia.

How do I get placed in a focus group?

After you register with us we will contact you when an appropriate project arises and ask you some qualifying questions. If you meet the needs of the project we ask your availability to attend a session. It’s that easy!

Alternatively, you can visit our current projects page to check whether or not you may meet the criteria for any current projects.

How often can I perform market research?

There are rules around how often you can partake in market research. Most jobs require that you have not taken part in a market research job in the past six months. However, there are variations on this rule. Some jobs require a 12-month period since last taking part.
