I’ve been taking part in focus group studies lately to make money and they are an interesting venture. First of all they are difficult to be accepted into. They only accept a limited number of people from each age group who all answered a preliminary questionnaire that met their criteria. I have filled out many, many preliminary questionnaires and might have a conversion rate of 5 percent. You then get a follow-up call in which you might be disqualified for any number of other reasons that you weren’t expecting. I’m happy if I qualify for any study groups and get to go to one tonight. Unfortunately, I’ll have to drive all the way to Bala Cynwyd to take it and still have to overcome the final hurdle. I’ll have to answer all the questions exactly the same as I did during the follow-up call. If you answer anything differently, you will be sent home without pay. That may not sound too hard, but when the questions involved rating things on a scale of 1 to 5 and similar questions to that it can be confusing. I wish I had a pen and paper when I took it so I could have written down my answers. As long as I get through the obstacle course of questions it will be well worth it since they pay very well. Depending on the study I can get a full day’s salary or more in just two hours for sharing my opinions. I may not get home until 11:30 p.m. at night, but it will be well worth the trouble.
At DDA, you won’t be put through an obstacle course to get what you want.
