What does participating with Bryles Research look like?

Bryles Research is a local marketing research company. We have been in business for 39 years and we help companies test their products so that they may understand consumer behavior toward their products. These test are conducted in many different way from phone interviewing, in-person interviewing, in-store interviewing, and more. We contact people from all varieties of different topics and products.
In order for us to conduct tests for companies we need consumers to come in and give their opinions. We obtain these numbers through individuals signing up on our website, filling out a database form in our office, through a referral, or provided by our client. For each test, a small number of people are invited to participate in a survey. You have been chosen because you fit certain criteria, so your answers represent a large segment of the population.

During a FOCUS GROUP, you’ll meet with 6-10 other people to discuss a product, service, or idea that interests you all. There will be a moderator to lead the discussion, and we are sure you will find this an interesting and fun experience. Naturally, you are always compensated for your time.
During an INTERVIEW, there will be you and an interviewer who will ask you questions, or you may be in a group setting answering questions on your own. There are no right or wrong answers to these questions – just your opinion. You may see an ad for a product, an idea for a new product or service, or be asked to taste or test a new product.

During a HOME USE TEST, you will pick up product from our offices to take home and use at home and log in to an online survey one or more times to answer questions about the product. This may be food to take home and prepare, make-up or hair care products to try out, or household products to try.
