Big Data, Product Reviews and Behavioural Economics
In today’s hyper connected world, consumers have the opportunity to review products, services, retailers and just about anything and everything. If we need an opinion of something, it likely exists online. Websites such as Yelp, Trip Advisor and Amazon have given consumers a platform to share their feedback quickly and easily. These reviews are important to marketers because consumers trust and use them as an input into the purchase decision process. In short, they have a real impact.
Ipsos Encyclopedia - Questionnaire
Simply put, a "questionnaire" is a set of printed or written questions with a choice of answers, devised for the purposes of a survey or statistical study. In the research industry, it is often the core document for development and refinement, which contains questions designed to answer the research objectives posed by our clients.
Enterprise Feedback Management (EFM)
Customers across all categories now look for a personalised experienced that is available when they want it, how they want it, where they want it. Regardless of whether the desired experience is delivered, it is now possible through the explosion of mobile coupled with the prominence of social media for consumers to give instant feedback. The consequence is the increasingly significant impact that customer experience has on the overall relationship with a brand.
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.
