Market research is a tool used by organisations to find out what people think of their goods and services. This can be done in a variety of ways ranging from in home interviews, paid surveys or focus group discussions.
Group discussions bring together small numbers of people to discuss a topic. A typical discussion consists of seven to ten people who share common characteristics and experiences in relation to a topic. The group discusses the topic for about 1.5 to 2 hours under the direction of a skilled moderator.
Group discussions are held at formal group rooms located in central locations across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
The commencement time of group discussions vary. They are mainly held in the evening, however daytime groups are also common.
Group discussions vary between 1.5 to 2 hours. Participants are paid accordingly.
You receive payment upon successful completion of a session or project. You will be advised of your payment amount prior to acceptance of the session or project. Payments range from $50 - $150 per session.
