Due to the non-payment issue I experienced and terrible customer support, I do not recommend Focus Forward.

My Review of Focus Forward Online
Survey Frequency and Quality
They send out about 1 -2 regular surveys (surveys for points) per week. Most of their surveys pay 1000 points ($1) and require about between 15 to 30 minutes to complete. I never qualified for their surveys. Those regular survey are not worth trying in my opinion.
Focus Forward also offers focus group opportunities, mostly online focus group project or telephone interviews. I have qualified and completed one online focus group.
Survey Credit and Payment
Focus Forward provides cash rewards for those participate their focus groups. They have online and telephone focus group opportunities and those pay, well if they really pay! Even though I have been paid by them, but they never paid my last cash out. No response to my emails I even called them but they never called me back.
I have contacted them regarding my membership and non payment issue, and got reply in 2-3 days for the login problem, but NEVER heard back from them regarding the payment issue.
