What our participants are saying...

Please note - we ran into a rare technical difficulty with one of our recent video studies, which has resulted in a delay in sending out participant incentives. We apologize for the delay, as we take paying our participants on time very seriously. We a are working hard to resolve this issue, and we thank you for your patience. If you have any questions, please shoot us a note via this contact form and we will be in touch shortly. 

Just like you wouldn't hop in an Uber or Lyft that has a 1.8 rating, or stay at an Airbnb with a 2.5 overall score, we wouldn't expect you to participate in a research study without knowing what former participants think of us.  As you will see, we pride ourselves in making our experiences fun, informative and rewarding for all!

Below are just a few of the many direct emails we've received from participants after joining our engaging, virtual and in-person research studies! 

"Thank you for the experience because we probably would've done this for free!"


"Fascinating focus group!  Wow – fast and furious.  Thanks for including me.  Really got me thinking.  Love the way it ran.  Tight show."

"We really enjoyed this endeavor. If you need anybody else, we're at, we're game. That's awesome. You've got a cool company."

"Hi Hootology Team! Just wanted to thank you guys for an awesome time and opportunity. It was fun, hope everything turned out the way you all anticipated.  Have a happy holiday season.  Cheers!" 

"Thanks for letting me participate in last evenings sports survey. It was well organized and hopefully productive."

"It was definitely fun and entertaining. Um, I didn't expect it was, it was better than what I expected it to be."

"Honestly, the food was a bonus. Like I didn't think you guys were going to feed us. I just thought we were going to sit there or a couple of hours."

"I was right on time, five minutes early &  it was a great experience, something I’ve actually never done before. It was cool getting a chance to read other peoples thoughts and suggestions, thank you so much for allowing me to put participate. And I hope that I will be on the list for the next online event ☺️."

"I enjoyed being a part of the group. It was fast-paced and the questions were good. I think maybe I over thought some and tried to write too much, especially seeing some of the brief answers."

" And the discussion was extremely enjoyable and relevant to me personally. Time flew by."

"Thank you again for this opportunity. It was so fun and I enjoy sharing my opinions."
