$1,050 in Market Research Studies - See if you Qualify!

Time for the weekly feature on Market Research. I will strive to bring you new programs to join each week, as well as list any studies these companies are screening for at the current time.

Want to learn how to make money on Market Research and sign up for all current programs I have introduced? Click here or go to my Focus Groups button in my left menu bar. All the recommended companies I suggest you register with will be listed in the side bar.

This week, I wanted to remind you to join two programs I have talked about previously. For may new readers, you may have missed these companies the first time around and I haven't had them listed on my Focus Group page yet.

If you didn't join this panel the first time I talked about it, click here.

This is run by the same company that does the Nielsen ratings for TV, but instead they studying shopping habits. If you are selected, they provide you with a scanner that allows you to scan your items when you shop.

In some cases, you can actually scan the receipt and it uploads all the information.

You then transmit it to them, and earn points that can be redeemed for gifts.

How does the program work?
New Balance has a testing program and if selected, they send you a pair of their shoes to wear.

Usually, you get to keep them for 3 to 4 weeks. After you are done, you send them back.

Why do you send them back? Apparently, they want to evaluate wear patterns based on usage.
Usually, children get picked more often than adults. Maybe it is because they are much harder on shoes.

But, hey, I will have my son test shoes if it means they may create a product that lasts longer for my boys. My son is SO hard on his shoes and jeans!
Interested in testing their shoes? Click here!

But, before you do...make sure you get your foot measured by one of those little doodaddies at the shoes store. They need your exact measurement and width.

And, don't forget to join Gongos Research, too. I talked about them previously.
Per a comment from Stephanie on the Braggers post, "Just another reminder to everyone to sign up with Gongos. It might have a funny name but I've done ridiculously little work for them and they've sent me $45 in Amazon certificates. I participated in roughly 5-6 screener surveys and 2 full-fledged studies that were more lengthy but I've only been with them for a few months and I've gotten less than 10 requests from them. So don't wait. Go sign up and then answer everything you get from them and hopefully you'll get lucky." Yay, Stephanie!
