    Market Research Blog
    21 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    The U.S. weight loss market has hit a plateau, experiencing  little growth over the last 6 years. After the downsize of the economy, consumers have decreased their purchases of diet drinks, health club memberships, medical programs, diet books, and exercise videos and moved forward to a more do-it-yourself (DIY) approach. Yet, small niches in the industry are starting to boom. According to a report by publisher Marketdata Enterprises Inc., the value of the U.S. weight loss market declined by 1.8% in 2013, down to $60.5 billion. The market is expected to increase in 2014…

    With the fast-paced lifestyles of the average U.S. consumer, simplicity of snacks and beverages is a must.

As health awareness continues, consumers are going to continue switching from carbonated soft drinks to water. Marketers from companies around the globe need to embrace new ideas for water to ensure their bottles are picked off the shelves.

    The emerging wearable technology ecosystem will bring mobile advertising personalization to a whole new level as solutions such as Disney’s MyMagic+ wearable are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

Wearables can be used as a source of knowledge for advertisers. This can be done by collecting information about user’s behavior towards certain ads. Wearable devices…

    Cat products account for over a third of sales in the CAN$2 billion Canadian pet products market, and Canadian cat owners are fully in step with the pet pampering and product premiumization trends that have long characterized the U.S. market. By some measures, in fact, Canadian cats are more than a whisker ahead. According to pet owner surveys conducted by Packaged Facts over the April to June 2014 period, 30% of Canadian cat owners purchase cat food formulations that feature poultry or meat as the first ingredient, compared with 19% of U.S. cat owners.

  • Q2 M-Commerce Explodes to 47% Y/Y Gain: What it Means for the Growth of Mobile

    19 Aug 2014 | 11:53 am
    The 47% gain is a headline-worthy number to be sure, but let’s unpack that number a bit to understand why the quarter was so strong and what it really means for the future growth of m-commerce. One factor that significantly benefited the growth rate for the quarter was a pretty favorable comparison to the same quarter last year. You can see from the chart below that, prior to this year, m-commerce tended to see a seasonal share dip during the spring months. This actually makes sense given that m-commerce is still an emerging market, and we often see these behaviors amplified during both the…

  • Does Snapchat’s Strength Among Millennials Predict Eventual Mainstream Success?

    8 Aug 2014 | 6:34 am
    The three leading companies in the social media sector – Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter – are worth nearly $250 billion combined. What makes many social media companies so valuable is the power of the network effect to deliver highly engaged audiences at scale, which translates into the opportunity to monetize through high volumes of ads and other high-margin products. The network effect can be very powerful but is also very difficult to achieve, which is perhaps why many considered Snapchat a risky proposition a few months ago. Is it possible that the Snapchat founders already knew what…

    5 Aug 2014 | 12:45 pm
    Summer will soon be over but many Americans are still not done traveling this year. US has been branded by the  travel industry as the ‘no-vacation nation’, with a vast majority of American traveling once a year. Although a same percentage  of Hispanics and non-Hispanics travel once a year, MediaPost urges travel marketers not to ignore the Hispanic market. Instead, MediaPost asks that marketers target the Hispanic market, explaining that Hispanics spend more money on average than non-Hispanics on domestic vacations. As they explain, there are several distinct reasons for this:…

    18 Jul 2014 | 7:50 am
    If you’ve ever spent much time with me, you’ve probably picked up on the fact that I love Chipotle. QSRs (Quick Service Restaurants) that are convenient and affordable but also source locally and use responsibly raised meats can be difficult to come by. When I learned the owners of Chipotle had opened a new QSR chain ShopHouse, I was ecstatic to say the least. ShopHouse serves an entirely gluten-, wheat-, and dairy-free menu, a selection of responsibly raised meats free of antibiotics and growth hormones and an array of market fresh vegetables. With the popularity of dieting…

    16 Jul 2014 | 7:30 am
    Last week an American living in Japan stumbled upon close to 100 prime condition arcade machines from the 80’s stored away and untouched in greater Tokyo. Donkey Kong, Galaxian, Street Fighter, Puzzle Fighter, Raiden 2, and Scandal Man were a few of the machines taking up two full floors. The finder of this gold mine, dubbed “The Ghost Arcade”,  has been selling them on Reddit for the past week and found buyers in the US, Brazil, France, Italy and the UK. He explained he sold to those markets first because arcade machines are rarer and therefore more expensive. Arcades are very much…

      In Part 1 of this two-part blog series, we discussed the importance of recruiting the support necessary for your survey programs to succeed. The first part focused on recruiting executive buy-in and a project owner. The final type of support you need is from your survey respondents.

  • Testing Ads Before they Launch

    Greg Timpany
    19 Aug 2014 | 8:06 am
    One of the major advances offered by online survey platforms, such as Cvent, is the ability to incorporate multi-media. In days gone by you would have had to recruit members of your target market(s), invite them to attend an event and then expose them to the proposed ads, pilot television shows or movie endings. This was, and still is, a costly endeavor. With the move toward online surveys and panel management, consumer and B2B market researchers can select a broader audience, for less cost, and expose these groups to multiple ads in a fully executed experimental design. This alone increases…
  • The Motivation Gap: How to Keep a Multi-Generational Workforce Engaged

    Alli Whalen
    18 Aug 2014 | 8:52 am
    Inter-generational differences between Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Generation Y are especially pronounced in the workplace. It’s not hard to see why. The sheer range of communications styles, skill sets, aspirations, and values of different employees sitting side-by-side, confined within the four walls of an office for eight hours, is enough to present any organization’s leadership with a difficult conundrum. How do you keep employees who are shaped by distinctly different generational experiences equally engaged? Sure, all employee are unique in their own way, regardless of…

    Have you ever purchased a product or paid for a service and then were asked to provide your input and feedback on your experience? Most likely your answer is ‘yes.’ But, the best is when you are lead or pressured to respond a certain way. For example, when an associate or clerk tells you that you’ll be contacted for feedback to rate your satisfaction with them and they ask you if you will respond with all good remarks. Luckily when I’ve had these conversations I actually would be giving the person a good rating, but since they asked me to give them a good rating, it…

  • Lead Generation: How one company increased leads 96% by changing the presentation of incentive content

    20 Aug 2014 | 11:01 pm
    Tweet A common way to gain lead information is by offering free content, such as a white paper or guide. But if it’s free, why don’t we have 100% lead capture rates? Why do prospects provide their information for one PDF guide, but not for another? The answer may not be in the incentive itself, but rather, in how you’re presenting it. Last week, I had the pleasure of joining Jon Powell, Senior Manager, Research and Strategy, MECLABS, on the MarketingExperiments monthly Web clinic, “Leveraging Content to Generate Leads: 3 simple tactics one company used to generate a 96% increase in…

    18 Aug 2014 | 12:01 am
    Tweet Anytime we share research about overall conversion rate benchmarks, I give the same caveat – while it’s helpful to understand conversion rates for your peers, the bigger question you must ask yourself is how to improve conversion rates on your own landing pages and in your own funnels.   Is there a methodical way to increase conversion? While marketing has tended to be dominated by the marketer with the “golden gut” or the star direct response copywriter, other disciplines in the enterprise – from manufacturing to IT – have developed methodological processes to improve…

    Benjamin Apel
    27 Jun 2014 | 6:20 am
    This article will help to define a cross-sectional study, outlining the ways in which cross-sectional studies can be used and what makes them valuable to marketers and researchers. It will also help you identify opportunities for a cross-sectional study in order to better understand an existing assumption regarding a specific demographic, hopefully before you undergo an extensive survey or research effort based on that assumption. In short, think of it as a test to confirm or deny a theory so you can avoid further wasted efforts and expenses on a study that may lack correlation. What are…

    11 Jun 2014 | 8:32 am
    Earlier this week, Vice President Justin Knepper at Bank of the West was gracious enough to share some of his experiences using SurveyGizmo as well as some of the challenges, including how he was able to convince management a survey tool would be well-worth the cost. [Founded in 1874, Bank of the West is now a subsidiary of BNP Paribas with over 600 retail branches in the Midwest and Western U.S. and more than 66 billion dollars in assets (as of Dec. 31st, 2013).] SG: Thanks for taking the time. So what have you guys been up to as far as surveys and market research are concerned? JK: The…

    Imagine leaning towards the person beside you at the theatre and saying any of these: – I’m sorry, I have red hair – I’m sorry, I only speak English – I’m sorry, I’m wearing a mismatched outfit today And of course, imagine that every time you go to a public function you have to apologize to the people around you for having Tourette’s. As if it was any of their business. As if a piece of you needed to be pointed out. As if it was something to apologize for. Sadly, many people don’t understand and have little sympathy. So, to the young men…

    I never go into bakeries near my work office. It’s dangerous. It can set a disastrous routine into place. But since we’re moving offices, anything is fair game right now. So hello, The Rolling Pin at Yonge and Lawrence! First the good this doughnut had real visible pieces of bacon on top. Not crumble. Not Baco bits. Real bacon. You can never beat real bacon. the doughnut came with a syrup injector. YEAH. You read that correctly. That was fun and awesome. Now the bad  it was just a doughnut. Nothing flavoured, no bits inside. A regular glazed doughnut. And since the bulk of what…

    How many times have you seen comments like: – social media research isn’t valid – mobile surveys don’t do a good job – neuroscience doesn’t predict anything Well, I’ve heard all of them many times. Many times each and many times every year. And I completely disagree. The problem is never the tool. The problem is always the person. No, social media research doesn’t give valid results if you don’t collect it properly, clean it properly, score it properly, and analyze it properly. And neither does any other research method. Bad research…

    I’m pretty open to new connections. First of all, I’m the Editor In Chief of a marketing research magazine called Vue so I am always in search of new connections who could be potential authors (could you?). Second, I know that the future isn’t written in stone and I could be unexpectedly job hunting tomorrow. In both cases, the more connections the better. At the same time however, I do not Link with every Tom, Chris, and Susan who asks. I am not a LION. My criteria may be broad but they are simple. Are you a person?

    12 Aug 2014 | 5:20 am
    I’m not a big cell phone user in the traditional sense. I rarely use it to make calls. But I’m an over-sharer on Twitter and Facebook, I use LinkedIn ad nauseum, and I love to blog on the go. What that means is I could have my face to the phone for approximately 6.7 hours every single day if I wasn’t careful. But I am careful. I do have some rules and I’d love to share them with you. For Love: When a loved one (ok, ok, or a liked one) is in visual sight, whether at home watching TV, on a hike through the wilderness, or anywhere else, the phone is not permitted out of…

    Want to track how many calories you burned on your lunch run? There's an app for that. Want to turn your face into an Emoji? There's an app for that. Want to kill time by making patterns out of different colors of candy? There's an app for that, and it's quite popular, in fact. Candy Crush Saga, the most popular gaming app in the United States, according to Forrester's Consumer Technographics® Behavioral Study, attracts close to 14% (about 1 out of every 7) of US online smartphone owners. On average, users access the app almost every other day, and when they do, they spend more than a…

    15 Aug 2014 | 8:09 am
    By Kristopher Arcand It's no secret that mobile digital wallet technology is faring better in the US than in the UK; here in Boston, I use my LevelUp app at more than half of the retailers I visit (the app tells me I've visited one vendor 122 times!). However, only a few providers -- including PayPal InStore, V.me by Visa, and Paydiant -- are serving UK consumers. (Will Amazon be next?) To understand the popularity gap for mobile digital wallet technology between the US and the UK, Forrester leveraged its Technographics® 360 research approach to get a holistic view of consumers. By…

    With 44% of all retail sales in Europe set to be offline sales that are influenced by the Web in 2018, it's not surprising that online display advertising spend in Europe will grow more than three times faster than total advertising spend over the next five years. Forrester's Online Display Advertising Forecast shows that online display advertising will continue to cannibalize advertising spend via other channels. Firms are increasingly using video and rich media to engage, entertain, and attract the attention of online users and to enrich their brand storytelling. The growth of…

    Last week, two news items captured the front-page headlines of the Indian financial newspapers. The first was an announcement by Flipkart on July 29 that it has raised fresh capital of $1 billion in one of the largest funding rounds. The second was an announcement by Amazon on July 30 that it will invest another $2 billion in India. These numbers appeared large to us when seen in the context of overall online retail sales in India. As per the Forrester Asia Pacific online retail forecast published in early October 2013, India's online retail spending was expected to reach $2 billion by the…

    With Fatemeh Khatibloo The tide is turning on privacy. Since the earliest days of the World Wide Web, there has been an increasing sense that the Internet would effectively kill privacy - and in the wake of the NSA PRISM program revelations, that sentiment was stronger than ever. However, by using our Forrester's Technographics 360 methodology, which blends multiple qualitative and quantitative data sources, we found that attitudes on privacy are evolving: Consumers are beginning to shift from a state of apathy and resignation to caution and empowerment.

  • Why Twitter Is Not Television's Second Screen

    Tom Webster
    12 Aug 2014 | 7:03 am
    I've always hated the term "second screen." Certainly, as Time's Harry McCracken pointed out, Twitter has won the battle for "the place where people talk about TV." Twitter's dominance during the World Cup and other live sporting events pretty much put that one to bed. But Twitter is not television's second screen, because there is no such thing as a second screen. As my very smart friend Mitch Joel often says, there is only the screen in front of you.Practically, what that means in terms of Twitter is that when you are watching the big game, or The Walking Dead, or American Idol, the TV…

  • Was Facebook's Experiment Merely A/B Testing?

    Tom Webster
    2 Jul 2014 | 9:56 am
    I've had a lively and intelligent debate with my friend Shel Holtz via email about Facebook's recent feed experiments, as published in the most recent PNAS. To recap what Facebook did, they experimented on the feeds of approximately 700,00 users to adjust the emotional content of their news feeds. With one group, negative emotions were largely removed from their stream, and with another, positive emotions were removed. The net effect was that for users who largely saw only negative content, their own updates became more negative (and vice-versa). In other words, in the language of the study,…

    I recently spoke at the Vocus Demand Success conference (thanks for the invite, Geoff Livingston!) on the topic of consumer insights. Before I launched into my talk, however, I asked a very basic, yet provocative question: why are you here? No, I haven't been binging on Camus and Sartre again. Instead, I hoped to get a sense of what people expect to get when they go to a public presentation of market research.I asked a similar question on Facebook, and got an altogether sensible answer from Chris Brogan, who replied that he wanted to know when he needed to conduct research, and when he could…

    By Joel Rubinson The two most powerful concepts in marketing research…trends and norms…are also the biggest enemies to innovation. We know purchase intent sucks as a primary measure (in my experience, as many as 70% who say they “definitely will buy”, don’t) but because we have norms, we refuse to give it up.  We know trackers have to evolve but we don’t want to disrupt trends. The result?  Our research programs are falling more and more out of sync with marketing in a digital, social, mobile world. So, here is how to get out of the rut we are in. When I was Chief Research…

Enter iModerate. iModerate looked at the issue differently. Rather than trying to duplicate a traditional approach in a new…

The policy, which has been around since China first built the Mogadishu Stadium in Somalia in 1978, usually has a tie-in with strategic economic or political interests.  The biggest effort, by far, has been in Africa, where the Asian giant has built 34 stadiums. However, Asia and the Caribbean have also benefitted. In Latin America, the only high-profile example is Costa Rica, where China helped build the National Stadium in 2011.

    TD Bank made me cry today. Picture this: I’m at my desk in an open-office workspace, when a co-worker IMs me a video about TD Bank. I had previously written on switching from TD Bank to an online bank named Simple, so I’m interested, and I click the link. About halfway through, my eyes well up with tears. In addition to handing twenty dollars to everyone who came to specific Canadian locations and depositing the same amount to online banking customers, last week TD transformed their normal ATMs into Automated Thanking Machines for 12 very lucky customers. Emotional and striking, this…

    Consider the following table, which shows the relationship between preference for different brands of cola and age: Which cells on this table are worth examining more closely? The first answer to this question is that we should look at any cells that relate to existing hypotheses. However, more often than not, we have no hypotheses. This is where statistical testing can help. It can identify tables that may contain interesting results. There are two different approaches to performing significance testing on tables with the goal of helping data exploration: column comparisons and cell…

    As many of you may know, to the 3 V’s of Big Data (Volume, Velocity, Variety) has been added a 4th ‘V’- the concept of Veracity. Oh wait, apparently a 5th and 6th ‘V’ have been added – Value and Viability. A 7th? Not yet? It’s only a matter of time. I nominate vaticination. Since Veracity was suggested by IBM, I’ll focus on this one for now. Veracity is meant to represent the fact that Big Data contains a lot of noise and error that can easily obscure the ‘truth’ that exists within the data. The data tend to be so big and move so…

The CRM vendor landscape for Small-to-Midsize organizations includes a wide variety of solutions, including those traditionally built for enterprise organizations.  The popularity of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings and the low-cost scalability of these solutions have led many enterprise on-demand CRM providers down-market with lower-priced, and sometimes feature-light, options for small and midsize businesses.  But, enterprise-class CRM is still more expensive and at times, too feature-rich for small-to-midsize…

    Nat Disston found his passion for surfing at an early age. At the age of 4, Nat and his cousin made pretend surfboards out of cardboard. Although he unsuccessfully rode carpet waves in his living room, creating cardboard surfboards was an early sign that his passion would soon come out through his work. Years later, Nat took a backpacking trip in Costa Rica. He met a surfboard designer who created custom boards by whittling. When Nat got back from the trip, he bought a blank piece of wood and $100 worth of hand tools. After three unsuccessful attempts, he finally was able to create a…

    The two most powerful concepts in marketing research…trends and norms…are also the biggest enemies to innovation. We know purchase intent sucks as a primary measure (in my experience, as many as 70% who say they “definitely will buy”, don’t) but because we have norms, we refuse to give it up.  We know trackers have to evolve but we don’t want to disrupt trends. The result?  Our research programs are falling more and more out of sync with marketing in a digital, social, mobile world. So, here is how to get out of the rut we are in. When I was Chief Research Officer at the ARF, I…

    Yes, the purchase funnel as a linear model in a non-linear world, is a big problem. My own shopper research done in partnership with InsightsNow on behalf of AOL proves that a high percent of brand consideration now forms as people are doing their pre-shopping research or right at the point of purchase. McKinsey found the same thing. However, the BIGGEST problem with the marketing funnel is that it leads to the media funnel.  Because we think awareness comes first, then consideration then finally purchase, we move from big to small, from reach to targeted advertising, from attitudes to…

However, except for the automated telephone or IVR polls conducted during the election(although these polls underestimated the NDP’s vote), no other…
