The Lounge

Where Brands And Consumers Meet

Focus Group Research Company Vision One

Welcome to The Lounge
The place where consumers and brands meet.

The Lounge is an online community where you can earn money and meet like-minded people in a place where you can freely express your frank and honest views through online surveys, focus groups and other means.

Many brands are keen to understand your thoughts and feelings. Brands want to listen to your opinions and encourage you to have a say about new concepts and marketing ideas. Organisations want to learn from you and to be challenged. That’s how they find out what people care about the most, and they need to focus and where they need to focus.

The Lounge is powered by Vision One, an award-winning full-service strategic insight agency with a history spanning over 20 years.

At The Lounge, we like rewarding you for your time and effort, but we also want to make a difference in the world. We are committed to helping make it a better place for everyone and everything. This is why we are devoted to the Net Zero Pledge to be carbon neutral before 2027, so you can rest assured your contributions will also help make a positive impact.

How can you help?

The Lounge is our online community which offers a user-friendly and rewarding experience for all participants. It’s a place where the public shares views or comes together to influence brands’ decision-making.

At The Lounge we believe it’s not just about earning incentives, but we go further by providing you with better rewards. That’s why we now offer regular free cash prize draws for every active member! We will also be running an annual competition where you can see our top participants on our website. 

As part of our Net Zero Pledge, we will plant a tree for every 100 completed surveys for The Lounge. We will also send out individual certificates to all members who complete at least 50 surveys yearly. Surveys aren’t the only way to take part; we are planting a tree for every Focus Group that we run and every ten in-depth interviews conducted. We will notify you when you are eligible, and you will receive a certificate electronically from e-Forests.


Online Survey The Lounge Vision One

Online Surveys

Our paid surveys not only pay cash but are simple and easy to complete and participating ensures you remain a member of our community. You can watch unseen TV ads and other videos, review new concepts and products, help design packaging, even have a say in companies’ logos and other branding elements, and many other activities!

The typical online survey takes between 5 and 10 minutes to complete but can go up to 20 or 25 minutes. You will be incentivised based on the survey length of the survey and typically receive between 50p and £3 for each survey completed.

Being a part of The Lounge automatically enters you into regular cash and other prize draws, too.

Focus Groups The Lounge Vision One

Other Research Activities

We also have a wide range of other research methodologies, including depth interviews (one-to-one sessions) and focus groups (6+ participants sessions). Importantly, these are open, friendly conversations with our Qualitative Research experts with over 40 years of combined experience in hosting and moderating.

The sessions are usually 60 minutes for a depth interview and up to 120 for a Focus Group. You will receive a cash incentive, typically £50 or more, which will be transferred directly to your nominated bank or PayPal account after the session finishes within five working days.
