Not really gaming related but ATL related. A while back (years not months) an ATL CAG posted about a market research group in the metro area doing a study on soft drinks (diet colas or root beer I think). It was super easy; drove there, drank some liquid candy, gave an opinion on its flavor, got paid, drove home. Ever since I participated in this first one I have done a bunch more with various firms on a variety of things. Nice way to make some $ if they're doing it at a time when I'm available.
I got a call about an upcoming study in the metro area yesterday and I thought I'd pay it forward to the ATL CAG community that got me into the thing in the first place. There's a group out of Alabama called Nolan Research that's doing a music survey in the ATL area soon. They are looking for people that listen to Top40 and/or Country music in the ATL area. The Top40 one is being done on 8/28 and the Country one is on 9/6, both at 7pm at the Marriott Perimeter Center in Dunwoody.
You'll sit at a listening station and give your opinion on songs and go home with $50 for your trouble. They always want specific quotas of people in race, age, and gender groups so you may or may not qualify. I know that they are still looking for white listeners between 25-40 though as they mentioned it at the end of the call. Remember, they are looking for listeners of Top40
(something like 99.7 Q100) and/or Country
(ex: 94.9 TheBull). If you're interested call them at 334.284.4164 and ask for Terry.
Sorry this got long, just want to help out some fellow ATL CAG(s) like I was helped out back in the day.
