We're looking for 50 volunteers to take part in two online focus groups (25 in each) to give their views on a new website, Vodafone's Parents' Guide to technology.

You will need to have a look at various sections of the site, and then be available to give your comments between 1-2.30pm on Tuesday 16 June or Thursday 2 July.

Everyone who takes part will receive £20.00 per focus group.

If you're interested, please sign up here

£20.00 per focus group?

How will this be split between 25 people and how will they get receive the amount?

I am now confused, which is easy to do.

Well I've signed up, but I want £20 for myself. I don't want to share with 24 others!grin

I've signed up, not sure what i'd spend the 80p on though grin

May be it's £200 per group or £2,000 - meanies, infact even if they gave a lump sum to a charity it would be better.

Sorry MNHQ, don't mean to have a maon, but I can't get my head around £20 shared between 25 people for doing 90 mins in a focus group.

Vodafone reinstates bonuses after £4bn profit revealed It says "although profits were down they still came in at more than £4bn for the year". Jolly good.

I think/hope it means you get £20 for being in a focus group.

<signs up anyway>

Well its got to be better than vodafones home page. Which is the worst website ever. You need some sort of websire Phd to find anything useful on it and as for trying to top up a phone online....well, you'd have more luck actually posting coins into your mobile!

oh sorry went off on a bit of a rant there. grin

It says £20 for each tester in the thread title so I would say that is pretty clear, I suppose the "for each group" either refers to per group if you do two groups or is a mistake in the typing!

wotzy Tue 02-Jun-09 18:40:08

I the title does say £20 per tester - that's true

Paid to give opinions?? Great!

wotzy Tue 02-Jun-09 19:11:12


what a namechange! Are you well?

I know I know all moany about money - I have PMT - so forgive me!

fruitshootsandheaves Tue 02-Jun-09 19:20:43

I'm sure unicorns a would be too magical to vomit...surely they would just possit or maybe have a little hiccup.

Babieseverywhere Tue 02-Jun-09 19:28:44

Carrie, I had to fill the form in twice. The first time I missed a question as a toddler hit return hmm

Can you ignore my first form ?

MrsWeasley Tue 02-Jun-09 20:33:13

I took it too mean £20 (per person) for each focus group you take part in. So if you take part in 2 focus groups they would pay £40 to each person.

I could be wrong but thats how I read it. blush

carriemumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 02-Jun-09 21:08:28

Oh dearie me, you wouldn't think I studied English would you blush. I meant £20 per person per focus group. I added that line as an afterthoughtas I wanted to make sure folks knew that if they did both focus groups they'd get £20 for each one, and instead I seem to have caused more confusion.

Babieseverywhere, we'll happily ignore first form.

Hope that clears everything up for everyone Thanks to all who've volunteered so far.

Can I just check you've also done the GMC poll too? No incentives but, it's only a couple of questions, takes 30 seconds and is a chance to have our say about a really important topic ? << sorry, shameless plug, don't work for GMC, honest >>

How on earth did you manage to get confused by that? hmm grin Tis very clear from the thread title and 'per focus group'. Perhaps we need a new guide to reading thread titles?
