What is a focus group?
A focus group is a form of interview that involves a small group of people, around 6-10, who go through a guided discussion with a moderator. Focus groups give the researcher a wider range of opinions and a wider range of data, than what a normal one to one interview would, they also provide customer feedback and help find unseen issues that might not have been orginally considered, which can be important to certain customers too. Whilst in a focus group, you are encouraged to discuss and share your views on the topic being spoken about.

How much can I earn?
If you take part in a paid focus group with Opinion Exchange, you can earn anything from £30-£150. These groups can either be online or in-person. The sum you earn for taking part in the research does depend on the subject matter being discussed and the types of people the researchers need to speak to. Focus groups are normally paid in cash on the day of the group.

What do I need to do in a focus group?
In a focus group you will need to be expressing your opinions on the topic being talked about, expanding onto someone else's answer and just giving general feedback throughout the session. The topics spoken about could range from things like improvements for a specific company you are shopping with, to what sort of things you buy at the supermarket. The discussions never tend to be formal, we just need you to be actively contributing so we can get as much information and as many views/opinions as possible. The more the better. The main thing to remember is that there is no right or wrong answers. All the information is valuable and useful.

How long will the focus group take?
The focus group that you will take part in could last anywhere between 1-2 hours. The average amount of time is 1 hour 30 minutes but this will depend on the topic being discussed, what information the client requires and how many people are involved. You will find out the exact amount of time once you have agreed to take part in the focus group.

What will the research gathered be used for?
The research that is gathered from the focus group like all the answers, opinions and feedback you contribute will be used by our clients so that they can decide what decisions they should make regarding existing goods and services and future products. On some occasions, the discussion might need to be audio recorded or video recorded. You will be made clear of this before the group starts and the recordings will only be used for the analysis part of the research. Your data will never be shared to third parties and you will also be kept anonymous too.

What happens after I sign up for opinion exchange?
After you sign up you will need to fill out the profiling survey, the more information we have about you, the more likely you are to be picked for paid research, as you might fit some of the client's specific requirements. Once you have completed this your account will be complete and you will be ready to take part in the research. We will most likely contact you through email, so check your emails reguarly but in some cases it could be over the phone. None of the information we take from you will be used for sales or marketing, only research purposes.
