    20. 20. Implications: Research Industry “One-size fits all” social listening collection policies do not capture the range of mindsets Although “natural level” of concern is low in segments, they’re extremely sensitive … concern can flip in an instant Consumers can have a “panic attack” at any moment©2012. ARF and Questioning Institute.All Rights Reserved
    21. 21. Implications: Collection Practice Tailor collection policies that:  lessen concern  increase the perception of ethicality, and  Satisfy the emotions of each mindset Collection practices can be universal, what differs is their presentation to consumers©2012.

    22. 22. Approaches to Mindset-based Data Collection “I Want Control”  Provide tools or preference settings that give consumers control in advance over collection and use “Collect with Integrity”  Spell out what will and won’t be collected  Detail complaint handling, accountability  Emphasize anonymity of own and friend’s data “Protect My Privacy”  Explain how PII and data is protected and handled  Accurately state purposes for data collection  Assure that collected info is used lawfully©2012.

    23. 23. Implementation Steps Assign each person to a mindset using a segmentation wizard ( Do this during registration or reviews of terms of service Provide collection policy geared to each person’s mindset©2012. ARF and Questioning Institute.All Rights Reserved
    24. 24. Conclusions and Next Steps Mindset-based collection approaches allows researchers to tailor listening collection practices to consumers Replicate study semi-annually to trend mindsets, identify changes and update collection practices to stay in sync with consumers Expand mindset research to additional areas to create scientifically-based research practices that include the views of consumers and professionals©2012.
