    Hi guys - my comapny has just set up a website to recruit people for focus groups. We've been running them for 13 years and realised that most people didn't have a clue how to take part. We generally pay between £35 and £50 for 90mins, though it can be more for depth interviews.

    To register the website's www.hcrecruit.co.uk

    I hope it's OK to put that here - if not let me know and I'll get people to PM me.
    Just had a look at your site, but there don't seem to be any contact details available (other than email) - so I would deem this as dodgy from a personal perspective.

    Just to update you, my web site is now live (but not officially launched as I am still tweaking it).
    I have set it up to tell the public about market research, explain why and what happens and what it means if you are asked to attend, as so many people don't know about it and are suspicious. It also has a facility to register your interest in attending groups; your details are then passed to a group recruiter near your locality and they will contact you.

    If anyone lives / spends time in Central Cardiff, there's a company there that often brings people in for market research (in exchange for vouchers of course!).

    Anyone interested can PM me for details :)

    Hi, i want to join more market researche companys, however this may sound silly. Reading on here it gives advice where to look etc, and 1 is yell.com. Now what i want to know is do you just phone and ask to join or how do you go about it. I know this makes me sound thick but i dont want to make calls and them thinking what the hells he on about, thanks,:D:beer:
