make extra cash from home focus groups

Over the years, I have participated in many different focus groups that pay cash. They are an extremely easy way to make money on the side. Many of them allowed me to participate in some very important studies.

What I like most about participating in focus groups is that they pay well.

For Example: I once participated in a health study that paid me $125 for an hour of my time. Not bad considering all I had to do was sit on a panel and answer a few questions. 

What are Focus Groups?

Focus groups are discussion sessions  consisting of a group of  people who share similar opinions and experiences. The sessions usually lasts 1½ to 2 hours.

Corporations and  service providers sponsor these sessions to better understand the needs of consumers. Sessions can include participating in:

  • Taste tests
  • Product testings
  • Concept tests
  • Mock juries
  • Consumer studies, etc.
