Posted by Lisa Boughton on 21-Mar-2019 13:50:13

Pepsi, Dove, ASOS... What do all these companies have in common? Well, they’ve all made some pretty big and most definitely avoidable mistakes when it comes to diversity and inclusion. Such culturally insensitive mistakes usually end up with a huge backlash from customers, and the subsequent PR clean-up campaign is always a nightmare. The saying might well be that all press is good press, but let’s face it - no one really wants to be known for a lack of diversity and cultural awareness. So what’s the solution? Well, by ensuring your campaigns are inclusive, you can actually end up avoiding costly mistakes in the first place - and it all starts with diversity in research.

Why we shouldn't be ignoring the growing segment of 'Otherhood'

Posted by Lisa Boughton on 13-Mar-2019 11:49:53

Carrie Bradshaw and Bridget Jones: if you were asked to think of a single woman in her thirties, these are the two characters that would most likely spring to mind. Carrie was single, childless and carefree (with one of the best shoe collections we’ve ever seen) - but when you think about it, she doesn’t actually represent the life of most single women without children at all. Neither does Bridget Jones, with her big pants and Chardonnay-fuelled rendition of “All By Myself”. Today, childless women are much more wise-to-the-world. They’re savvy, they’re successful - and they’re a segment that is growing in importance in market research. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the ‘Otherhood’...

Posted by Lisa Boughton on 20-Feb-2019 10:16:58

Move over Millennials, there’s a new generation in town! Generation Z refers to those born between 1995 and 2015.

Is AI the future of customer experience?

Posted by Lisa Boughton on 19-Feb-2019 09:36:24

 

AI is something of a buzzword right now - especially when it comes to how it can transform the customer experience. It’s thought that 85% of customer relationships will take place without human interaction by next year, and Servion has even predicted that AI will power 95% of all customer interactions by 2025. Not only that, but artificial intelligence such as chatbots are set to be responsible for cost savings of over $8 billion per year by 2022, up from $20 million in 2017. It’s easy to see why AI is such a hot topic in the retail sector!

Posted by Kelly Barnard on 22-Jan-2019 15:31:40

Respondent fatigue is a very real, and a growing problem in the market research world. In fact, 39% of researchers actually expect sample qualities to worsen over the next three years. Why?
