Focus groups generally involve a group of people discussing a topic or answering questions about a particular product, service, or idea whilst a moderator steers them in the right direction. Despite being one of the more traditional market research methodologies, we believe focus groups are still a very important part of the modern market researcher’s toolkit, because they allow researchers to observe body language and understand responses in order to unlock in-depth insights about what really makes their customers tick – and why.

“We have worked with Angelfish for 3 years now and have always experienced a great service. The team have always met our briefs effectively and efficiently which has allowed us to run a number of successful qualitative research projects. Angelfish are proactive and adaptable, which has been particularly important given some of the short timelines we often have to work to. On a personal note, Lisa, Kelly and the team are lovely and make working together easy and thoroughly enjoyable.”
The Angelfish Team were personable, thorough and extremely professional. They provided us with four lots of engaged participants for our focus groups following a smooth recruitment process, which they managed effectively and efficiently. They kept us well informed every step of the way during our project and this gave us confidence that they would deliver – which they did.
Working with Angelfish has been a wonderful experience. They are professional, pleasant and pro-active which is exactly what we were looking for in a recruitment company. Having worked with a variety of recruitment agencies, it was an added and unexpected bonus to receive feedback from the respondents who participated in our research. We look forward to working with them again!
