Your time is valuable, and don’t we know it! So, it is standard to compensate participants who participate in every type of marketing research. The amount and type of compensation we provide varies from project to project.
We are excited to have you participate! If your participation is in-person, that is, the type where you travel to a location or someone interviews you in your home, you are typically paid at the conclusion of the research. If the research is by phone interview or in an online format, you will receive a link to the online incentive, typically a visa card, in up to 6 weeks.
Occasionally, participants will be rewarded with a type of incentive other than an online visa card. Whatever the reward type is, this will be made clear in the invitation, during the screening, and in your project confirmation.
Rewards for online surveys are given using Focus Forward Points, which can be seen in your Member Account. When your account reaches 20,000 points, you can redeem those 20,000 points for $20 in the form of an online visa card. Every 1,000 points equates to $1.00.
Some projects have individual rewards that will be sent to you for just that project. These rewards will not show up in your member account. These can be cash, gift cards, gift baskets, products, or an array of other possible rewards. With all projects, you will know the rewards before you agree to participate. These other types of rewards will take up to six (6) weeks for you to receive.
