GMRG- Online Sample partners
GMRG has sample partners throughout the world. In the US, panel partners total over 7 million respondents. Our partners invest in both the size and quality of their online panels to provide clients with highly targeted, qualified respondents around the world. Our partners are selected by their ability to perform as “Geographic Specialists.” Our partners use a double opt-in email sign up method. At any one time, a proportion, typically around 30-80% or more, of the total panel is ‘active.’ These are the respondents who are new to the panel, or who have taken a survey with us in the last six months and whom we have profiled in depth. We require a de-dupe of panelists for 60 days from participating in studies of like subject matter.
Partners don't consider members active if they have enrolled, but not taken a survey within their first three months of membership, or if they have not participated in a survey in six months or more. We have developed these rigorous standards to help ensure the quality of data and respondents that you receive from us. Partners typically refresh active panels between 25-30% annually.
For large tracking studies, we fell it imperative to use multiple sample sources to ensure there is no “Panel Bias”. This also enables us to draw censes balance from multiple sources as needed. To ensure all quotas, we typically use hard quotas stops for age, region, and gender as required by the client +/- 5%.
As security is of major concern, all GMRG partner servers reside in a Tier 1 data center with multiple armed guards on staff at all times. Access is restricted by both photo identification and biometric verification. All servers reside behind a CISCO firewall with the latest versions of Red Hat Linux and the Apache Web Server and automatically employ Red Hat Linux Enterprise security updates.
GMRG- Best Practice Quality
GMRG uses trained and experienced project management “teams”. These teams enable more then one set of eyes to watch quotas and quality. We typically will review and update clients daily or as requested with an easy to read spreadsheet of completes and open quotas.
If needed for budget reasons, GMRG can deploy a “self complete online” survey instrument incorporating a multi source recruiting method (online sample and intercept), but a single completion method for data consistency.
GMRG employs several methods for data quality checks.
- All online studies regardless of recruiting method employ both 1) a minimum completion time check to immediately terminate “click through” respondents, and 2) embedded quality check questions to make sure respondents are paying attention. Missing multiple quality checks will immediately terminate any respondent.
We have found these to dramatically improve the quality of data to our partners
We also conduct regular open end response reviews. Respondents are removed immediately if they fail to meet standards set by the client for quality. These checks are conducted in live data. This ensures the highest quality data on a weekly basis.
GMRG- Hispanic Research Expertise
Hispanics are the fastest-growing minority in the United States, with an estimated $600 billion in buying power. Collectively, they represent a large and growing market opportunity. But individually, they vary greatly in their level of acculturation, language preference, and financial circumstances. How do you collect truly representative opinions, ideas, and feedback from Hispanics—in a timely and cost-effective way? At GMRG, we believe you gather opinions from a wide spectrum of combined methodologies.
To truly reach the Hispanic community we blend the use of offline and online research to gives you fast access to the full range of Hispanic voices. Offline-only research can be time-consuming and doesn’t always capture fully acculturated Hispanics. Online-only solutions don’t always represent target groups accurately. But by combining both approaches, GMRG is able to provide a more representative sample of the Hispanic population. We conduct hundreds of Hispanic offline studies annually and understand which markets can give us a true read on the fully un-acculturated Hispanic market.
