For those of you that are unaware, a focus group is a variety of people put together to provide their opinions or beliefs about a specific idea, product, or service.
Sounds a lot like getting paid to take a survey almost right?
The difference is that you are part of a group instead of solely giving your own personal opinion.
FindFocusGroups gives you a list of groups that you can become a part of by location.

All kinds. Because of the nature of focus groups almost any type of company you can think of will probably need a focus group.

Nothing. You should never pay to be part of any group. There should be no application or membership fees. If you are asked for money it’s a scam.
