For moms, it can be tough to make extra money, especially when balancing work, kids, pets, and whatever else life throws your way on a daily basis. There are bills and school supplies and school clothes to buy plus all the money it costs for after school activities and don't even get me started on the cost to take a family vacation. Some moms turn to selling used items on eBay or having a garage sale, but have you ever thought of participating in focus groups or other market research opportunities?
Did you know the products and services you and your family use every day come to market as a result of marketing research? How would you like to influence what products you are purchasing and learn about new products that may be coming on the market, Companies rely on the opinions of consumers like you to test their products, evaluate TV programming, weigh in on social issues, conduct mystery shops, and participate in mock juries, to name a few.
In the U.S., there are 75 million mothers, all of whom influence 85 percent of their household purchases. With all that buying power, it stands to reason that companies turn to marketing researchers to make sure that their products are meeting your needs and expectations. They want to know what you think, what your family thinks and hear about what your needs and wants are. Our needs and wants is what drives purchases and companies want to know what they are.
Registering to participate in focus groups is a painless process. One of the top companies conducting opinion research is Focus Pointe Global, a national company with a location in Atlanta. They have an interactive website for their panel members at http://bit.ly/fpgmom, where you can register and fill out your profile. Once that is done, you will almost immediately receive an email invitation to take a screener survey to see if you qualify for a particular research study. The studies are on a wide variety of topics, including baby products, social issues, taste tests, appliances, beverages, cell phones...just about anything you can think of. Participating in a focus group or product tests is a fun and easy way to earn some extra spending money - from $75 to $100 for only a couple of hours of your time.
Another way you can participate in marketing research is online or by phone. Focus Pointe Global conducts webcam focus groups, telephone interviews, online surveys, online communities, and a lot of other methods as well. They even have an online product review program, where you are sent a product to use (and keep!) and you write an objective review on the company's website. Whether you are able to participate in marketing research in person at the Atlanta research facility or by going online, there are a lot of opportunities to make some extra money and have fun while doing so!

This could be just what you have been looking for to help supplement your family's income and get bills paid for or help you save up for a trip or a special purchase or perhaps make it possible to afford after school activities for your children,
