Focus Groups To Make Money in 2023

What are they? Companies pay participants for being involved in paid market research, one-on-one interviews, usability studies, or online focus groups.

They take place at venues such as hotels or market research facilities, in your own home, on the phone, or through an online forum.

Your opinions can ultimately change how a new food product, video game, or even chart album is marketed and advertised—and you get paid up to £200 as a thank-you for your time and contribution!

How do you get selected? Normally, you register on the company’s website, giving details about your hobbies and your personal life, and then you will be emailed about sessions that you can apply for. 

Payment: Payment is made either through BACS, Paypal, or Amazon vouchers, which will be confirmed by the research company.

What happens? During COVID, I’ve taken part in a few sessions via Zoom! I’d never used Zoom before! If they feel you are a good fit, they will normally ring you and discuss when you are available to take part—either in a group Zoom or one-on-one.

They average an hour long, and you just chat and answer questions about your thoughts and experiences on a particular topic, like food, a company, or a system, and then get paid! couldn’t be easier! Some are quite fun as well. 


Market Research Companies

RESEARCH OPINIONS  – Well paid, lots of groups to apply for (mainly done through Zoom at the moment), they also conduct online survey panels which you can take part in.

Focus Groups

RESPONDENT –  A company that pays respondents to help researchers with their studies. The research projects vary from week to week, so keep checking this website for new ones.

Most studies can be done from home on your computer. You can also refer people to this site and make a profit based on this



TREND – You will receive focus group projects by email. They match your criteria to projects you apply for and contact you to place you on a focus group, telephone interview, online survey etc.

You choose the projects most suited to you, and once you are selected for and placed on a project, you will be remunerated accordingly. 

Focus Groups

PAID FOCUS GROUP  – This is quite new to me and I mainly use the app – simple focus groups you can apply for, not seeing many though so money is not adding up quickly.
