When HGTV was first launched in 1994, I was lucky to be part of the focus group in Maryland and paid with a crisp $100 for my time. Yay! Since then, I've signed up with various groups online that pay with gift cards, points, or cash. It's simple to sign up for this group, and a recruiter will contact you for upcoming studies if you qualify, but it's also important to follow Facebook or Twitter to find out what type of surveys they're doing.
If you like to be the first to find out about brand new products, try new foods or to share your valuable opinions, joining a focus group is the perfect opportunity. Even better, if you're chosen, you'll be paid well for your time.
Their main offices are located in Charlotte, NC, Miami, FL and Nashville, TN, but you may also sign-up online at http://www.2020research.com/
