Thank You: What is a Focus Group?

What are consumer focus groups?
Companies that are about to launch a new or improved product typically gather consumer feedback about that product prior to launch. This helps tweak the product to fit different consumer needs and/or address concerns. Consumer focus groups typically consist of 8-12 members that match certain demographic requirements (e.g., a strong likelihood of using the product).

These group members are asked questions by a moderator after reviewing the given product; their responses are recorded and analyzed via (usually) hidden third-party observers. If chosen to be a part of a  focus group, members are paid quite well, with some members earning as much as $75 - $100+ per focus group!
