Companies and organizations often rely on consumer input to improve products, marketing, and planning. One way they gather that information is through studies, or focus groups.
Respondent is a site where companies post their studies. You can sign up to participate, and if you qualify you can get paid for your input.
Through Respondent, you apply for projects by taking screeners (answering a series of questions that will help companies determine whether you are a good fit for the study) and you are limited to taking THREE screeners in a 24-hour period, so choose the ones you feel you’re most likely to qualify for.
Here are some of the studies that are currently posted. Be sure to apply or share quickly, as only a limited number of people are needed for each study. Please note that the following links are associated with our referral account and, if you are selected to participate, we may receive a referral fee.
