Frequently Asked Questions
How did you get my telephone number?
In order for studies to be accurate, every household must be given the chance to participate, including people with unlisted phone numbers. For many studies, a computer randomly generates the phone numbers that are called, or telephone numbers are obtained from public records.
What are you trying to sell me? What is the catch?
Nolan Research is a marketing research firm, we do not sell anything. Telephone sales under the guise of research is illegal. Most likely you were being called to give your opinions in a market research survey, or to be invited to participate in a focus group, music survey, or discussion group in your local area. We do not sell anything, and in many instances, we even pay you for your time & help.
