Participation in Market Research is voluntary. It is not a form of employment
Have a good time. Market research is fun and exciting. You get to try new products before they go to market or partake in a discussion about topics that can direct companies to new ideas or make an impact on political issues.
Be truthful about your answers when filling out screening questions. Companies spend large sums of money to conduct research to find out what their customers want and need. If the data collected is not accurate, companies will not meet consumer expectations.
Be open and honest about the topic. Companies really want to hear what you think. You will not offend anyone if you think something is not the way you like it or think how it should be. Your opinion really does count!
Share your opinion. You will be intrigued with the various opinions others have about a topic. Some will agree with you while others will have a different perspective. That’s okay. Companies want to hear the various opinions of consumers in order to help them make products that consumer’s value.
Respect the opinions of others. Each of us has our own opinion of just about every topic imaginable. Everyone has the right to express their opinion.
Participate! You are the voice of the people. You can help shape the means by which products and services are produced for this country. By being part of market research, whether in the form of a taste test, discussion group, or individual interview, you have the opportunity to tell companies what you like, don’t like, want, and need from them. Your participation in research helps bring value to the products and services you buy.
Make sure you fill out your profile and make it as complete as possible. The more complete your profile is the greater your chances are for participating in our research. Periodically, update your information. Don’t forget to write down your username and password. If you forget your password, you can click on the link on the cash4youropinion.com website that says “Forgot your password?” and we will send it to you.
Give yourself plenty of time for traffic and parking at the Galleria. LA traffic is unpredictable and the parking here at night and weekends can be crowded.

Do not discuss what you talked about or products that you tested with family, friends, or co-workers. It is important to keep study information confidential. Once the product has been released to the public, it is then okay for you to discuss it.
