Pan-European quantitative survey
A large pan-European online survey in 16 countries was conducted in June 2009 , in close cooperation with IAB Europe. Belgium, The Netherlands, France, UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Greece, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Poland, Romania and Hungary were all represented in this survey.
Participants were recruited from our InSites TalkToChange online research community . The online sample was drawn on a country level of 2000 respondents, consisting of 4 thematic subsamples of 500 respondents. More than 32.000 Internet users participated in this survey. Our sample is representative for the online country population (15+) . Its representativeness is controlled by quota management on the number of Internet users, gender, age, language, Internet/e-commerce maturity and broadband penetration. Various offline sources and statistics were used for calibration : random dialling CATI interviews, Forrester research data and national statistics.
Despite the above mentioned sample considerations, please note that our method comparison research, that has been the subject of an Esomar paper & presentation in 2006, has shown that online sampling truly reflects offline populations in terms of socio-demographic criteria for Internet mature markets. However, it also taught us that online samples tend to consist of people that are slightly more interested in innovation and are more technology savvy : this should be kept in mind when looking at absolute levels of mobile Internet penetration for instance .
Qualitative online research
The findings of the survey have been enriched with findings obtained from an international bulletin board discussion with more than 200 European surfers on digital media and marketing during 6 weeks.
Bulletin boards allow for asynchronous threaded discussions over a longer period of time involving more participants. Participants can return to topics and react to each other’s comments while research moderation is low to medium. Discussion boards are most useful for getting opinions about a specific event, topic or stimulus.
Finally, the report was enriched with the extensive experience we have gained over the years. This report is an integration of personal expertise and vision, cases, internal brainstorms with senior consultants, results from R&D research and other PR projects.
