Los Angeles Paid Focus Groups

Market research companies actually pay you $50 to $150 cash to participate in focus groups.  Feel free to use my FREE list that I compiled. Also get paid to do online surveys.


Several years ago I got a call from a market researcher who was looking for people who had bought a Subaru Outback recently.  They wanted me to participate in a small two hour focus group after work.  They said they would pay me $100 and feed me sandwiches and cookies.  What a deal!  I showed up, ate a sandwich, had a few soft drinks and gave my two cents about what I liked and didn't like about my Subaru.  There was a professional moderator and about 8 other participants. It was a quick two hours and they paid me $100 in CASH.

A few months later a got a call and they wanted me to come in and participate in a focus group about some new Showtime cable program.  It was a lot of fun and again I got paid in cash, this time $75.  What an easy way to make money.

I figured that I'd try to find more of these market research companies and try to get invited to as many of these as possible.    Here's a link to someone who has made a career out of participating in focus groups.

I'm in Atlanta but I've put together a Free List of paid focus groups in various cities around the country.  Below is the list for Los Angeles CA.
