FAQ

Below are some frequently asked questions that we receive. Hopefully you can find the answer to your question here but if not, feel free to call us at 407-282-3770 or email us at orlando@accudata.net.

 What’s a Focus Group?

A Focus Group is a round-table discussion on products and services that you use. The discussions are moderated by market research professionals and usually last between 1-2 hours. When you’re done, you are compensated for your time and opinions! AccuData hosts focus groups on every kind of topic, from television shows to coffee to utilities.

Do you do other types of studies?

Yes! Focus groups are the most common types of studies, but we also do taste tests, product trials, in-home interviews, shop-along interviews, phone interviews, and online research.

Who Can Join?

We seek articulate, enthusiastic & honest people for our studies. Adults 18 years or older can sign up in our database. If you would like for your children to participate in any children studies we have, then you can register them by filling in the question on the sign-up form that asks if you have children.

How Do I Sign up for Focus Groups and Other Research Studies?

You can register by filling out the Participant Sign Up Form on our website. Much of the information is optional, but the more details you give us about yourself, the more likely it is that you will qualify for a Focus Group.

Once I Have Registered, What Happens?

Our recruiters will match your information in the database to the research studies they need to fill, they will then call or e-mail you to ask if you are interested and available for the study. You will then be screened and asked a series of questions to see if you qualify for the study. If we determine you are qualified, we will invite you to come to our office and participate. Your voluntary participation in market research with AccuData constitutes an Independent Contractor relationship, not an Employment relationship. Please note, we have thousands of people in our database and we try our best to give as many people as possible an opportunity to participate in a study, but it really comes down to how well you meet the criteria the client is looking for.

Is My Information Secure?

YES! Your information is kept completely confidential. We do not sell or give your information to any third party such as telemarketers, clients, or advertisers.

What Are My Responsibilities as a Focus Group Participant?

AccuData and its clients rely on the integrity of focus group respondents to conduct accurate and meaningful research.

We ask that you:

  • Be truthful in answering questions about yourself and your habits.
  • Arrive for your appointment on time and ready to participate in the discussion.
  • Notify us if you must cancel with as much notice in advance as possible.
