Focus Groups Near Me

The companies listed below certainly aren’t the only research companies around, and for this side hustle, it might make sense to join as many firms as you’re comfortable with. That way, you’re presented with all the opportunities available, not just the projects managed by one company.

Here are a few more to consider:

  • FindFocusGroups.com – An aggregator service that lists focus groups from around the country. When I checked the compensation for these ranged from $75 to $350.
  • Prize Rebel – Earn $10-12 an hour doing surveys or completing other tasks. Just avoid the low-paying ones.
  • 20/20 Research – Funky looking website, but says you can earn $50-300 for participating in focus groups online or in-person in Nashville, Charlotte, or Miami.
  • UserTesting – Earn $10 for completing 20-minute online user tests of websites, apps, shopping portals, and more.
  • Tell Us Your Opinion – Mainly operating in Tulsa but may have online/phone opportunities as well.
  • InFocus – Indianapolis-based focus group opportunities, that seem to focus on the healthcare industry.
  • Adler Weiner Research – In-person studies in Chicagoland and Southern California.
  • Advanced Focus – Hosts market research panels and focus groups in New York City.
  • Consumer Opinion Services – Paid research studies in Seattle, Portland, and Las Vegas.
  • Engage Studies – Earn as much as $100 per focus group through this research company with a dated-looking site and intake form.
  • Nichols Research – Get paid to participate in in-person focus groups, primarily in Northern California.
  • Concepts Testing – The social accounts for this company are pretty dormant so I’m not sure if they’re still in operation, but they promise $20-1000 for product evaluations.

In doing all this research, a new side hustle came to me: web design and social media for these companies.

I ran into dozens of severely-outdated sites with copyright dates in the footer going back to 2010 in some cases. Their Twitter accounts where ghost towns and the blogs (if they had one) hadn’t been updated in years.

They might have a hard time making sales if their online presence makes it look like they’re no longer in business!
