Eligibility: open to USA residents 13+
Was invited for a 1hr phone interview in return for a cash incentive of $100. The screener told me the incentive would be paid within two weeks of granting the interview. I gave the interview on 12/23/2014 and have not received the incentive as of 1/19/2014. The only phone that would pick up was their recruiting department and they could not help, or give the the name or phone number of anyone who would. Executive's phone numbers are listed on their web site but every last one of them went to voice mail.
This is a great site to join. Not only do you get to do online surveys, but sometimes you are invited to do focus groups in your area and they can pay really serious money. The homepage will show you what areas where the focus groups take place.
I signed up primarily for the focus groups, when I saw the payouts and what they were asking, I was in shock. (But in a good way.) I've been with them for a while now (6 months+). They send out messages roughly every week with focus panel opportunities. I didn't take the plunge though until recently.
I could tell they were legit by how they screened for panels. First through a SurveyMonkey survey, then through a phone screening afterwards. If you still qualify, you'll be given the details of the when/where for the actual panel. Almost all the panels are online. I did part of mine at work because it was that quick and easy.
You won't qualify for everything, but when you do, it's worth it! I just going in a $100 check for roughly 2 hrs worth of work.
They do do generic "points/credits" surveys that are 1-3 minutes in length also. I NEVER do these because they're a huge waste of time IMO.
I was a member of Focus Forward for 3 years. In that 3 years I earned all of $9.00. The last time I checked my account was Sept 2012, and I still had that $9.00 in my account. Today I was going through my survey sites and checking my current earnings
with all the survey sites I belong to, and found that my $9.00 which it took me 3 long years to accrue, has just disappeared from my Focus Forward account. I couldn't cash out, b/c I didn't meet the cash out threshold, and I couldn't advance my earnings b/c of the scarcity of surveys FF sent and the difficulty in meeting their demographics.
Would love to know where my $9.00 went???
I am not even going to chase it down. Not worth
I just deleted my account. I don't get many surveys from them and when I do, I rarely qualify. Thus the measly $9.00 earnings in 3 years of membership.
Save yourself time and frustration and skip Focus Forward.
Though I rarely qualify for the surveys I have been able to participate in some focus groups which paid me out separately and were definitely worth it. I stick with them because you never know what'll come my way.
