My Review of Focus Forward Online
Survey Frequency and Quality
They send out about 1 -2 regular surveys (surveys for points) per week consistently. Most of their surveys are interesting and take about between 10 to 20 minutes to complete. Their surveys covers a variety of topics and sometimes offer product test surveys. I notice that they have quite some surveys that offer opportunity to join some special online communities.
Focus Forward also offers frequent focus group opportunities, mostly online focus group project telephone interviews. I have qualified and completed one telephone interview and one online focus group and they are very professional and I loved the experience!
Survey Credit and Payment
Focus Forward provides excellent cash rewards for those participate their focus groups. They have numerous online and telephone focus group opportunities and those pay really well. In addition their frequent regular surveys offer reasonable good rewards as well. I have been paid a few times and they sent check payment very promptly – I usually receive the check within two-three weeks after cashing out!
