Shifrin-Hayworth Review:

Live in Michigan and like to opine about products of all types? Sign up with Shifrin-Hayworth to participate in focus groups. Focus groups generally involve meeting in person with a group of strangers to talk through the pros and cons of products or services. You don’t need any special qualifications to register. Studies typically require anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. And you earn between $100 and $250.

However, Shifrin-Hayworth specializes in market research for medical products, so if you’re a Michigan medical professional, it is a particularly attractive. The medical research can be done in a number of ways — personal interviews, telephone interviews, Internet surveys and focus groups. Medical professionals who participate in these studies earn more — up to $400 per study.


This is a great place to sign up if you’re a medical professional and not bad for other types of focus groups. However, it is only available for Michigan residents. If you live elsewhere, or just want more options, consider: FindFocusGroupsSignUp Direct and Consumer Opinion Services.
