Everyone has an opinion. And it doesn’t get much better than sharing your opinion and getting paid for it, especially from people who actually want to hear it! Fieldwork Denver is looking for people interested in being part of focus groups on a variety of topics and products. A focus group typically involves a small group of people (usually 8 to 12) sharing their thoughts and opinions for an hour or two. A moderator guides the discussion with a set of specific questions or topics. The sessions are typically recorded and/or observed by marketing reps via a two-way mirror. For their time and effort, participants are compensated with $50 to $100…sometimes more! To sign-up for focus groups in Denver, click here. Remember, you may not be selected — signing-up is just the first step. There are many factors that determine how participants are chosen, including age, gender, ethnicity, income, education, purchasing habits and more. (In addition, they’re looking for people who are more on the out-going side, articulate and not afraid of a little public speaking. It’s not as intimidating as it may sound. It’s actually lots of fun!) You will receive surveys via e-mail to determine if you initial qualify for a specific focus group. If you meet the criteria, you will receive a follow-up phone call for additional questioning. Once you’re accepted for a specific focus group, Fieldwork Denver will walk you through the rest of the process. (The staff is very friendly and professional.) Bryan just participated in a focus group a few weeks ago for Dunkin’ Donuts — an hour of talking about coffee and donuts for $100! It doesn’t get much better in our book.
