I was recruited for a focus group, and it was a very easy process from receiving initial email to being paid for my time. Focus People had great communication before and after group and the group was ran very well. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this oganisation.

Janelle Blight

I’ve done a few focus groups now with Focus People and on every time I’ve never had an issue with them. Always provide detailed info, the person conducting the Market research were very nice and engaging and the payment to me always done on a timely manner. I will be more than happy to do more of these focus groups again in the future.

Focus people provides amazing opportunities to a wide range market research projects which are rewarding both financially and knowledge-wise. I participated in some projects and not only got paid but also gained more insights in potential improvement for future living.

Catrina Xiao

I have done a number of focus groups, interviews both for personal and business, even my children have been involved! Lots of interesting research, always paid on time. The staff at focus people have always been so lovely and friendly also!

Great – thanks so much!
And again, great work Vanessa in sourcing high quality people to partake. And helping us get this done quickly.
Please thank all the respondents (if you can), their feedback was excellent, honest and well-considered. They really took it seriously and read the questions properly. It will certainly be heard by the right people and serve to inform how this important campaign comes to life.

Hi Kate, Sarah, Megan,
Just a quick note to thank you very much for all your help on the dishwasher project and particularly with the participants in the online focus groups.
The four groups ran over the weekend and the participants in each were articulate, to specification and were most helpful. I was delighted with their engagement and willingness to talk (with interest and mental involvement) for two hours about dishwashers and dishwashing. Thank you and the recruiters for all your help in getting this project so effectively completed!
We still have to hear from the client what they want done about Holly and her non-attendance – whether a replacement interview or something else, and I’ll you know when I hear from them (probably later today), but all the rest was a dream! Thank you all very much! ?

Philip Derham
Derham Insights Research

I also wanted to say thank you for doing a fantastic job recruiting interesting and diverse participants – all gave us a slightly different perspective to what we’ve heard so far so.

Sarah McColl

Thanks for your fast response with recruitment. We had full attendance and all 5 participants attended. All 5 were to-brief, arrived on time, and were top quality. We achieved what we needed from the research which was a great success.

Dave Hone

I have really enjoyed and appreciated working with you. I know this was a difficult project but you really went out of your way to be innovative and patient with the process and to stick with it until we got there.
I look forward to working together again and have already started recommending you.

Yes – all went really well. Everyone turned up and my colleague Laura thought there was a really good spread across participants. So thanks again to you and the team.

Carolyn Loton

Thank you and the team again for all your hard work on this. Last night we had two full groups that all turned up on time and were very chatty. We had clients viewing both groups, and it was really nice for us to be able to deliver everything as intended. Thanks again and hopefully the following groups go as well as the first! Please pass along my and Maddie’s thanks to anyone who is working on this project so far.

Cassie Pile
Kadence International

A big thank you to you and your team for organising everything on such short notice, especially with the changes. You should know that the reason I choose Focus People for recruitment over other companies is because you’re great at helping with this on short turnaround timeframes, and also because you help write the screener. I’ve been working on several projects simultaneously so it is a bit hard sometimes to make sure details are 100% accurate.

Lillian Chan

Just a quick note to pass on my thanks to you and the team for the recent online qual project you helped us out on – in more ways than one. Fast turnaround, discounted price, collaborative team and v.good respondents. So all in all a success – really appreciate it

Milica Loncar
Fresh Projects

The granularity of detail in the screener you sent over for project click was incredibly helpful and gave us a clear understanding of which segments we needed to fill. This detail meant that there was no point of confusion between our team and yours and helped the project run smoothly. Colour coding the segments in project hunger was incredibly useful for such a complex recruit. Your positive attitude and responsiveness is valued and makes working with your team a delight. The whole TBA team is continually impressed with how dedicated you and your team have been and we look forward to many more projects together in the new year.
