The First Surveys Were Just for Fun

Posted by Mike BoehmMonday, August 1, 2016, 7:00 am 1 Comment
A form of survey was in circulation long before the advent of formal market-research questionnaires in the early 1900s – and it was done just for fun.

Changing trackers and normed studies is challenging, but it is very do-able with the right preparation and plan.

An #MRX Hallowe’en Parade

Posted by Tom EwingTuesday, October 28, 2014, 17:31 pm 1 Comment
Let’s open up market research’s own house of horrors, and let loose the creatures of the night – the most terrifying monsters of modern-day research. It’s a Hallowe’en parade with a ghastly research twist, and perhaps along the way we might learn how to banish these fiends from our lives for the other 364 nights of the year.

The Coming Rebirth of Market Research?

Posted by Larry Friedman, Ph.D.Thursday, June 13, 2013, 7:32 am 18 Comments
Market research began nearly a century ago to fill a very specific need: marketers needed information to make good business decisions, and that information largely didn’t exist. The market research industry grew up to develop that information. As we’ve seen, the methods we’ve used evolved over time, but the basic reason for being for market research never really changed. Until now, that is.

World’s Worst Questionnaire Design

Posted by Ron SellersTuesday, August 9, 2011, 5:46 am 9 Comments
I just completed a survey (as a respondent). I honestly have no idea how the client is going to get any valid data from the mish-mash of garbage I just had to wade through in order to complete the study. As a respondent, I felt this was a frustrating abuse of my time. As a researcher, I felt this was a frustrating abuse of our industry. There is enough of this nonsense going on in research that it’s time we stand up and call out the worst offenders, and use them as examples of what not to do. Because it’s hurting the end users of the research, and it’s hurting the professionals who actually know and care what they’re doing.

Questionnaire Piloting: A User Guide

Posted by Jon PulestonFriday, April 8, 2011, 9:48 am No Comments
If I were to offer one piece of advice to the market research industry on my death bed it would be "do more piloting!". We have found that effective piloting really can lead to more efficiently executed research so it amazes me that more research companies have not latched on to the value of doing this.

Where Does the Buck Stop Again?

Posted by Ron SellersThursday, March 3, 2011, 6:26 am 10 Comments
When the field center tells me they’re comfortable that the questionnaire is 15 minutes long, and in the field it’s actually 23 minutes, who should be responsible for the inaccuracy of their estimate (or the unexpected length of the actual questionnaire)? I would love to hear your take on this, because I honestly don’t know.
