What is involved in a focus group?
Focus Groups are similar to taking surveys where you give your honest opinion or evaluate a new product or service and give your feedback and critic about it in an online form that will be filled out by you. A focus group will involve a select number of people that collectively share their insights as a group. You may be asked to log into a virtual chatroom where an administrator or moderator of the group will ask a variety of questions and pose them to the entire group. Depending on the answers you give, you may be invited to answer additional questions.
Tips for Participating in Focus Groups
- Answer each question honestly.
- Don’t skip over or omit any questions asked.
- Stay until the end of the focus group so that you will not forfeit your payment.
- Don’t be afraid to give a negative critic and if needed elaborate on your criticism and what if anything can be done to improve a particular product, service, business, etc.
- Do not close your browser or log out because you may not be able to access the group again.
- Use a surge protector for your computer just in case your power goes out.
- Try to avoid very short answers with just a couple of words. Remember the better your answers are the more opportunities you may have in the future to be invited to additional focus groups.
