Respondent Market Research
Respondent is a company that pays you to participate in research studies.
Their structure is much different than most online survey sites and apps. Respondent facilitates one-on-one consumer research studies and focus groups, both in-person and online.
Respondent works with individuals responding to the research groups as well as companies and organisations looking for feedback.
Sign Up Process
You can either sign up with your email address or with your social media account – You can also use your LinkedIn account which is a plus as it adds a bit of “business” data to your profile, which is what a lot of the companies are looking for I have noticed.
Respondent collects your name, birth date, home address, email address, and phone number.
This is standard the that survey site will ask for. Companies completing research want to make sure they’re reaching certain audiences.
Once you are done, you’ll end up on the main page of your account. You’ll see “Marketplace Projects”, which are the surveys Respondent offers.
Who Can Join?
Anyone 18 or older is eligible to sign up as a Respondent.
You’ll also need a PayPal account and either a Facebook or LinkedIn profile to verify your identity.

All of the projects clearly mark how long it should take to finish and how much it pays. There is also a brief description of what they are looking for in a respondent.
Most of the ones I have done are one to one zoom sessions which last about an hour. They are mostly well payed aswell.
Once you find a project you like, you can click on it and apply. To apply, you’ll need to fill out a brief screener survey to ensure you are the right fit.
If the company wants you for their project, they’ll reach out through Respondent’s system and message you.
