If you like sharing your opinion about products or services that are either out on the market or will be soon, you may want to participate in focus groups either online or elsewhere. Questions are asked in an interactive group setting where participants are free to talk with other group members.
Focus groups are important and advantageous in the world of marketing. They can give companies and businesses alike a strong advantage or upper hand in their field. It is especially important when competing with other businesses to receive feedback from their consumers and customers.
Like in-person focus groups, online groups are usually limited to 8-10 participants. Discussions generally last one hour to 90 minutes. Here are a list of legitimate companies that will pay you for your opinion.
