  • From Standing Community to Project Communities
    “We have a mandate at General Mills to move as much of our qualitative research online as possible.”
    As a result of 22 community projects:
    Focus on Discovery
    Smaller communities
    Shorter duration communities
    Larger incentives
    Geographically centered
    • Provides easy access to consumers
    • Yields quick feedback on insights and attitudes
    • “Spontaneity allows for flexibility”
    • Targeted research
    • Viral marketing
    • Many research projects are quite small and targeted, leading to shorter, more focused questionnaires
    ABC Studios Advisory Panel: Pros & Cons
    • Unable to verify that members aren't reporters or competitors
    • Leaks of sensitive material to the entertainment blogs and press
    • Piracy of episodes posted
    • Requires ongoing investment of time and money to recruit new members
    • Qualitative data is voluminous and time consuming to analyze
    • During off-production times need to keep members engaged
    • Victim of success - get pushed for rapid turnaround

  • Agenda
    Social Media
  • The Screen Age
  • Social Media is a Rich Source of Qualitative Insights
    Random-Sample Surveys
    • Closed questions
    • Limited response options
    • Can’t get the story behind the story
    • Provides hard data that can be extrapolated to a larger audience
    Qualitative Research
    Social Media
    • Open-ended comments
    • Provide the Story behind the story
    • Can’t extrapolate to a larger audience
    Quantitative Research
  • Blog Content Analysis
    Gartner sees marginal to no ROI from its clients’ investments in blog content analysis
    “It’s eye candy: management likes to see it.”
    Gartner sees no strategic value in connecting customers to their social networks
    In terms of concrete ROI, instead learn the language of the Voice of the Customer:
    Ask more open-ended questions in surveys and use text mining on them
    Use text mining on the keywords customers use in your web site’s search box
    Source: Gartner
  • Guidelines to Using Blogs in Market Research
    Caveat: Online persona does not always reflect offline persona
    Remember bloggers’ motivations and concerns about privacy and security
    Recognize impact of the audience and interaction on what the blogger shares
    Engage by acquiring bloggers as sample
    Eavesdrop to analyze online statements
    Connect in order to understand context of what is being shared and to authenticate identity
    Source: Gfk NOP
  • Surveys to Social Media: Apples to Orange Juice
    Social media's impact is disproportionate to the level of activity
    The data is dirty
    Brands with unique names are easier to research
    Topics are not always organized to answer our questions
    Social media is not representative, only directional

    New Design
  • Survey Research Steps, with Social Media
    Study Design: Use social media to frame hypothesis
    Sample Selection: Identify potential respondents
    Questionnaire Design: Learn language of respondents; develop choice lists
    Fielding the Survey: Invite respondents by Twitter
    Analysis: Add tweets for color commentary
    Source: Vovici
  • Surveys and Biometrics
    MTV Networks researched ad awareness
    Used biometric vests and eye tracking
    Follow-up survey for brand recall
    Focused attention: 30% for TV commercials, 80% for TV programming, >95% for videogames
    15-second preroll commercials had double the recall of 30-second commercials
    Prerolls more effective before action games rather than cognitive games
    Strategically integrating branding into the game resulted in 80% recall

  • Agenda
    Analysis & Communications
  • 7 Principles for Researchers to Collaborate with Executives
    Be clear on the Essential Question
    Lead a hypothesis flip-chart session
    Practice smoke-jumping
    Reveal the surprises
    Steer clear of the squiggly-line syndrome
    Avoid the “Alice in Wonderland” meeting
    Make your bottom-line your top line
    Source: Chris Frank
  • 8 Principles for Researchers to Become “Deviant” Leaders
    Plan: Know the company’s strategy
    Position doesn’t matter
    Eliminate Project mentality
    Profit: seek ways to improve the bottom line
    Accelerate the Pace of change
    Don’t succumb to the Pressure
    Develop Partnerships
    Perfection: Forget it
    Source: YRC Worldwide
  • Overcoming Objections to B2B Research
    “We already know that.”
    “They just won’t get it.”
    “It’s too complex.”
    “It’s too small.”
    “You’ll never find them.”
    “They’ll never tell us that!”
    “It’s way too expensive.”
    Source: Strategic Spark
  • Juggling Key Performance Indicators
    Gartner client had 137 “key” indicators
    As practical matter, she concentrated on 7
    Unfortunately her manager cared about a different 7
    No manager should have more 5-9 KPIs
    Can’t keep too many “balls in the air”
    World record for juggling measured in hours for a few items, in catches for many items
    Select KPIs with care
    Performance indicators are often tracked because they can be, not because they should be
    Focus on metrics that drive Life-Time Value

  • Agenda
  • Survey Research: Internet v. Telephone
    Probability-sample Internet surveys more accurate than RDD
    Probability-sample Internet surveys contain less random error
    Internet-survey respondents are less susceptible to social desirability bias than telephone respondents
    Internet-survey respondents are less susceptible to satisficing
    Response rates are essentially uncorrelated with the accuracy of probability-sampled surveys
    Opt-in Internet surveys are consistently less accurate than probability-sampled surveys
    Accuracy of results of opt-in Internet surveys vary considerably across surveys and within surveys
    Accuracy of results of opt-in Internet surveys vary considerably across panels

  • Microsoft CMRI Embracing Six Sigma
    For its research on research, the Microsoft Central Market Research Insights team has adopted Six Sigma
    “We are reducing the number of defects study by study by study.”
    “We averaged 12 defects per final report in a six-month period to 3 the next period down to 2 most recently."
    “We spend millions of dollars that affects hundreds of millions of dollars in marketing spend that affects billions of dollars in revenue. We have to get it right.”
    Source: Microsoft
  • Meta-Analysis
    • Most organizations fail to study and improve their decision-making process
    • “We have to create a culture of auditing the decisions.”
    • Identify ways to make better decisions in the future

  • Why Your Management Doesn’t Listen to You
    With careful planning and research, challenge executives’ sacred cows
    “Appointment viewing” believed by TV execs but even Sopranos viewers only watched 3.7 of 10 episodes (the high)
    Elephant in the room: Consumers often lack true awareness of their actions
    Bad research perpetuates myth of consumer self-awareness
    Integrate behavioral metrics into your research
