More About Dallas Studies & Surveys
Online surveys pay less than focus groups, but they have a number of advantages over focus groups. You can be taking surveys and making money in just minutes, from the comfort of your home or even at your other job. They accept everyone and you do not have to be one of the lucky few selected for in person work. The money is also constant and you can earn it every week. It is nice to have supplemental income that you can actually depend on.
When you complete online studies, you earn points that are then redeemed for cash or gift cards. How much you make depends on how long you want to work. Keep in mind that they do not replace a regular income, but they can allow you to earn some nice cash when you just want to kill some time. At the top of the page, you will find some of the websites that we like. They do not charge for access and have a long established history of paying out.
How Much Do Online Studies Pay?
You will not get rich doing online surveys, but you can expect to make anywhere from $100 to $400 a month in your part time. More if you are good and a bit lucky. The amount that you make greatly depends on how much time and effort that you put into it.

How Do Focus Groups Work?
If selected to participate, you will be given a time and location. Be sure to show up on time, dress nicely and be polite. When the group gets started, you will be given a presentation about a new product, service or advertising campaign. You will then be asked for your opinion about it. Most of these meetings are recorded and there may be a live audience observing you.
What Do Focus Groups Pay?
In Dallas, most focus group sessions will pay between $25 to $100. The amount can vary quite a bit but it is typically an amount that is worth your time. If you are lucky, you will get called often to participate but you should not count on this income to pay bills. Think of it as occasional bonus or fun money.
