Ethnography: an Unfiltered View of Reality
Ethnography is a research method made for investigating cultural practices, rituals, consumer behaviour, routines and social norms. It helps our clients identify previously unseen opportunities through looking at people’s worlds in a new way, through putting behaviour at the heart of our investigation.
Over the past few years, we have seen an increased proliferation of mobile across the world. Not only have we seen the number of mobile users grow worldwide, but we’ve witnessed increased engagement of consumers with their mobile devices for a variety of everyday activities, whether it’s watching videos, shopping and making purchases, or simply accessing the internet. We are now past the mobile tipping point, with mobile overtaking fixed internet access in many markets, across developed and developing economies. Consumer interactions with brands are, more than ever before, fragmented and multi-layered. Consumers are leading busy lives, and multi-task routinely in their day. Consequently, many of the planned brand exposures are missed and recall relevancy is eroding faster than expected.
