Paid Market Research

Here’s how it works:

1. You Register

Your registration with Powerdata Group Consulting connects you with market research projects. The more complete and up-to-date your profile is, the better your chances to be selected for a project.

2. We Contact You
Powerdata Group Consulting contacts you via email when there is a focus group that matches your profile.

3. You Share Your Insights
You participate in an informal focus group discussion held at a convenient capital city venue.

4. You Get Paid!

Usually between $50 – $150 for your participation.

It’s easy, it’s quick and your input could make a big difference!

Powerdata Group Consulting recruits people like you, from all walks of life – various ages, gender, background, suburbs, education, interests, professional fields – from uni students to stay at home mums and dads, business owners, tradies and professionals. The sharing of your thoughts, views and feelings helps businesses to understand and gain crucial knowledge about their current and prospective customers. You can earn extra cash while helping them to improve their products and services – $50 – $150 cash. Sounds interesting?
But first you have to register. Registering is free, secure and takes just couple of minutes to complete.

What does that mean for you?

We collect and use personal information exclusively for market research recruitment purposes only.

We collect only the minimal personal information necessary for the recruitment process. For example in comparison with other recruitment agencies when you register with us we are not going to ask you for your exact date of birth, but rather for your year of birth. We also don’t ask for your postal address, just for the suburb you live in.

When successfully recruited for a particular market research project we usually disclose your answers from the recruitment questionnaire to the party that has commissioned the focus group.

Rest assured – if you decide to – you will always have the ability to unsubscribe with us. If you unsubscribe your personal information will be permanently deleted from our database.

Powerdata Focus Groups takes data security seriously and takes all reasonable steps for protecting your personal information from misuse, loss and unauthorised access.

How much do I get paid and how?

Payments vary based on the duration and criteria of the group. Generally, you will be paid at the conclusion of the market research in cash or in the form of gift voucher, before leaving the premises.

Where does this happen?

Research sessions occur at a number of locations around Australia. We are constantly looking for people living in any part of Australia.

Victoria – Most of our research in Melbourne is held in St. Kilda, South Melbourne, Albert Park, Coburg, Chadstone and Richmond. We often run groups in Bendigo and Ballarat and there are occasionally groups in other regional areas.

New South Wales – Most of our research in Sydney is held in the Sydney CBD, North Sydney, Cammeray, Hurstville, Crows Nest, Manly, Harris Park and Parramatta. We also often run groups on the Central Coast and there are occasionally groups in other regional areas.

Queensland – Most of our research in Brisbane is held in Kangaroo Point or Milton as well as on the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Townsville, Rockhampton and Cairns.

South Australia – Most of our research in Adelaide is held in Parkside and Black Forest.

We also occasionally run research in Western Australia, Tasmania, Canberra and rural parts of Australia.

How do I get placed in a focus group?

After you register with us we will contact you when an appropriate project arises and ask you some qualifying questions. If you meet the needs of the project we ask your availability to attend a session. It’s that easy!

Alternatively, you can visit our current projects page to check whether or not you may meet the criteria for any current projects.

How often can I perform market research?

There are rules around how often you can partake in market research. Most jobs require that you have not taken part in a market research job in the past six months. However, there are variations on this rule. Some jobs require a 12-month period since last taking part.
