Hi guys

This post is for 2 lots of people

1. If you want to participate in market research / focus groups (some are in home product trials)
2. If you want to help me find people who are interested in participating in the market research / focus groups.

You are able to live anywhere for the recruiting part (you must live in Sydney if you want to participate in groups).

Correspondance is via email but you can always call me if you need to


If you want to do the groups plz pm me and i can send you info over

I work from home for a market research company (people REQUEST to be on my list and i get them to sample products, view ads etc either in home or at a venue)

NO COLD CALLING AT ALL - people request to be on my list

Sometimes I get jobs that I just can't fill as i have nobody suitable for them
So I need help!

I already have some lovely ladies from EB working for me .

This is NOT a huge money earner by any means but hey for not a lot of work it's not bad LOL

Here's how it works

I get a group that I need help with
my email to you would look similar to the following

Subject - Jobs available

Hi all
I need help with the following
Please get your people to fill out the questions under ‘research at harris park’ PLUS the ones right at the bottom (under ‘jobs available from mel’)
Very important that they put you referred them
They can email me directly or email to you for forwarding
If they qualify for this first part I will send them the next lot of questions
If they are chosen for the group I will let you know

Payment is 10.00 per head for people that are chosen and complete the group
If your person isn’t chosen they will still go on my database under your name so when they are used for another group you will still receive the payment
The payment is a 10.00 one off payment for the first use


PLEASE PASS ALONG TO ANYONE INTERESTED – if they are not on my list they will need to fill out the questions right at the bottom of the email as well as the ones regarding any research they are interested in.

Please fill out the questions to the ones you are interested in – if you delete the groups you are NOT interested that would be great! If you can do more than one group fill out all the questions, as your answers may determine you for a particular group which may not be the day you are initially interested in.  Feel free to cut and paste if the answers are the same.



Friday 25th September

11.50am – 2.30pm for females aged 25 – 34 years who have children

$90cash will be given after the session

If you are interested please answer the following


1. Name

1a. Are you male or female

2. Age

2a Childrens ages (who live with you)

3. Your contact numbers
3a Your occupation please describe fully
3b Your partners occupation please describe fully

4. When was the last time you attended a group discussion

How you would help me

What you would then do is go through your contacts and see if anyone is interested, if they are then you would forward them the email to see if they qualify for the 2nd lot of questions.
They would send it back to me with another form filled out saying that you referred them

Once the person has done the group and all is good, i would then be able pay you (i pay 10.00 per head)

BUT i can only afford to pay you when i get paid (i get paid monthly) so if for instance someone goes to a group right at the beginning of the month you wouldn't get paid until the next month.  EG For Feb groups I will be paid on Tuesday (so it is a long time to wait for the first payment I know)
Sometimes i can pay you as soon as the group is done, it just depends on how much money i have and whether i'm living pay to pay  wink.gif

This is NOT a scam i've been around for a while as you can see

As i said, it's not a way to get rich but it's pretty easy money if you have the right people - you of course can go to the groups also if you qualify, i would then pay you the 10.00 plus you would receive the cash in hand at the end of the focus group (obviously the 10.00 for yourself is a one off 'referral payment')

Once you give me the name and the person attends a group then i put them on my database and you are paid only the once, ie if the person does 2 groups in one year, you are only paid the once

hope i've explained this ok?

any questions please feel free to ask

hi all
it doesn't matter if you are far away from sydney as long as you know people in sydney

ie the groups are all held in sydney so that's where they'd need to travel to (parra, city, hurstville etc)

you can be interstate, it doesn't matter

ps have pm'd pp's

hi guys
sorry i haven't checked this thread lately been updating family tax stuff (groan)!

i actually tx my database over and obviously lost a few names (sorry Jen)

I will pm everyone and get you all back on!

Julie - the focus groups are all different as are the $$ and times
but for eg this week i'm recruiting for women 40+ who have kids over 12 for a group in the city $80 cash for 10am - 12 noon (sorry it is all full though)

and last week i had one for young mums at hurstville which gave $120.00

it is all different times and $$ but you can always turn down anything that doesn't suit or simply don't reply to the emails (i generally send emails first)

any questions please pm me

Do you know if they have the same sort of thing in Perth?

#17 SkyeMummy

Yes Mel, do you know if they need people in Melbourne??

Hi guys

I doubt it as this is just my personal job.  I work as a recruiter and then 'hire' my services out to my boss (ie just work as a sole trader)

i then pay you to work for me so it's just one job as opposed to any that might be interstate etc

sorry this sounds a bit garbled, hope i've explained it ok i'm  a bit brain dead today  tongue.gif
