Side Gig Idea: Online Focus Groups Pay a High Hourly Rate

A couple years ago, I was invited to participate in a focus group. I visited in-person along with about 15 other people. For two hours, we vented all of our feelings about the ways a particular health insurance company interacts with its customer base.

At the end, we each walked out with $125. The health insurance company wanted consumer feedback on their products and customer service, and it compensated us for providing our insights.

Focus groups can be a lucrative side hustle when you break down per-hour pay. You get to be a part of a company’s market research efforts, magnifying your opinion above those of other potential consumers.

These days, you don’t have to participate in paid focus groups in person. During the pandemic and beyond, you can use online focus group platforms to earn anywhere from $20 to as much as $600 per hour.

Online Focus Groups: a Viable Side Hustle

Focus groups can pay extremely well for the amount of time you actually “work.” They can provide surges of side hustle income all at once.

However, they’re not likely to sustain you in lieu of traditional income. Earnings can be extremely inconsistent. First of all, you won’t qualify for every survey, as each focus group has a specific demographic it’s targeting.

Often, though not always, the highest-paying surveys also have the most exclusive demographic requirements. The company may be looking to work with construction foremen who work with specific brands of equipment, for example, or with mobile app developers who use a specific type of programming.

In addition, some consumer research companies will only allow you to participate in one focus group every six months.

Just because work is sporadic doesn’t make this a bad side hustle. When the money does come in, you’re getting paid so much per hour that it’s worth setting aside 30 to 90 minutes of your time.

What You Do in a Paid Focus Group

Most focus groups require between 30 minutes and 90 minutes of work. When you’re doing a focus group remotely, you may be asked to fill out a multiple choice survey. Most of the time, though, you’ll complete a phone or Zoom interview with a live person.

Topics for focus groups are unlimited: You could find yourself answering questions about your favorite margarita recipe, how you’re coping with pandemic parenting or a survey related to your profession.

Some focus groups may require you to dedicate some time outside the interview itself. For example, you might have to give a specific product a test run or keep a journal of your experiences. This extra time is often accounted for in the compensation.

Where to Find Online Focus Group Jobs

All of the following focus group companies currently have online opportunities. In the past, many national opportunities could be completed remotely. But during the pandemic, even most of the city-specific assignments are virtual, too.

These market research companies pay well for your time and consistently update listings for more opportunities. We surveyed current listings for hourly pay and estimated average hourly pay given the jobs currently available.

Respondent

An overwhelming percentage of the focus group opportunities listed on Respondent are remote. The majority of the listings are not city-specific, allowing you to qualify regardless of where you live.

Current job listings range between $20 and $400 per hour, with the average focus group paying around $120 per hour.

WatchLAB

WatchLAB doesn’t have as many opportunities listed, but it does regularly update its inventory on its Facebook page.

Jobs are often city specific, though there is a wide variety of cities with opportunities available. Even city-specific assignments have been primarily remote through the pandemic.

Pay for WatchLAB focus groups ranges from $60 to $150 per hour, with the average focus group paying around $100 per hour.

Focusscope

Focusscope is another smaller consumer research company. It updates its users regularly about new opportunities on its Facebook page, and most studies are now completed remotely.

Focusscope pays $75 to $250 per focus group, with an average payout of $100.

FindFocusGroups.com

FindFocusGroups.com isn’t a consumer research company in and of itself. Instead, it’s a job listing board. It aggregates current opportunities available across the country, and allows consumer research companies to submit listings.

You can search these focus group listings by state. For example, the pay range for current listings in Pennsylvania is $65 to $160 per hour. The average focus group pays around $100 per hour.

User Interviews

If you’re looking for online or over-the-phone focus group opportunities, User Interviews’ listings are plentiful. However, compared to the other companies on this list, more of these focus group opportunities are in-person. Use filters while you search to ensure you’re only being shown the remote opportunities.

A portion of the listings on User Interviews are medical studies rather than focus groups.

Participating in medical trials can be another lucrative way to hustle together some extra cash.

Listings on User Interviews pay between $25 and $600 per hour — though very few studies get close to the $600 mark. The average focus group pays $60 per hour.

[Free 1on1] The key to crushing $3k/day on Shopify without any experience.

FREE 1-on-1 With Shopify Mentor

If you’re reading this then you already know how powerful Shopify can be for everyday folks trying to make a living from anywhere they want.

You already know that right now eCom is going through a massive boom & is the absolute best time to start your own store. 

You already know all of this… because you watched my training. 

But do you know HOW to actually take advantage of all this information.

Well, as a way of saying thank you for watching my training (and as a way of giving you an actual plan built for you) I’m offering a free 1on1 strategy sessionwith a highly-skilled eCom expert hand-picked personally by me.

Look, there’s a reason some people succeed and some people don’t.

It’s not because they aren’t smart enough or because they’re not rich enough.

And as someone who’s had their own fair share of success I can say that no matter who you are if you’re just starting out on your own you’re going to run into obstacles.

But something that I think all people who “made it” have in common is the fact that they are for the most part pretty persistent people. They don’t give up easily. Once they get started they don’t pull off the brakes until they have hit the point where they can let things run on their own.

And most importantly – they take action.


For example, Jon got his store up to 46 orders in a day! And his advice for anyone trying to do the same? (see screenshot below)

*earnings disclaimer: obviously these students are beyond what is typical of the average person who starts a store.  They had in-depth training with me & invested time to build their business.  We cannot guarantee results of any kind, we are an educational company.  We are just simply showing you what others have achieved with e-commerce by working hard, getting educated and sticking with it.  Everyone gets their own unique results, obviously.  You should never compare yourself to others… but you should be inspired by seeing others succeed.

The best part? Not only does he have the financial freedom to take care of himself and his family – he’s also earned the time freedom to spend his days doing whatever he wants.

But first they had to get started.

So, what are you waiting for???

These strategy sessions are normally worth $500, but I want to show you how serious I am about helping people succeed in eCom – especially those that stayed on my free training. 

You have nothing to lose & everything to gain – this is an opportunity you do not want to miss.

We do not offer reschedules, there’s just no way. So pick a time that you’re sure will work.

If you’ve ever thought about starting an online business, turning that business into a sustainable income, with a low barrier to entry and a high flexibility to do what you want,
