This session will give you a greater comfort level and more in-depth understanding of how these technologies work, what their advantages are, and how you can use them to win business.

  • Attendees will come away with a clear understanding of how research findings from telephone and Internet IDIs and focus groups can match or exceed the quality derived from in-person studies. The session will include techniques for winning studies using financial comparative analysis of telephone and Internet focus groups vs. in-person studies.
  • Session attendees will emerge with a greater sense of confidence in engaging these methodologies, and how to present their financial advantages to clients who want to accomplish significant research but are now on more limited budgets.

  • Presenters: Shaili Bhatt and Shamsu Bhaidani
  • Web-enabled phones are becoming more prevalent and text messaging has never been more affordable. Micro-blogging and texting trends are transforming the landscape of social media. Far more than a passing trend, mobile communications are here to stay!
  • This workshop explores how QRCs can use mobile SMS communications (text messaging) and more advanced options to stay connected with “on-the-go” targets and capture real-time information. A case study in conjunction with The University of Oregon exemplifies a hybrid methodology with a mobile component.
  • During this workshop, we will share tips for conducting mobile market research, how QRCs can personalize mobile communications and encourage respondents to interact with their cell phones, and how to review findings online instead of over the phone. We will also delineate key differences between “outbound” and “inbound” mobile SMS questions, and which technique is valuable for qualitative researchers today. Audience members will participate in real-time demonstration of these techniques to help differentiate them.
  • In addition, we will work in groups to discuss ideal situations for proposing mobile research as a satisfying option to clients and how mobile research can enhance their studies. Let’s invigorate our toolboxes and let the texting begin!

  • Presenter: Diane Harris
  • You’ve heard someone’s behavior, demeanor or general persona described as being “very professional.” But what does that mean to clients and consultants, and does it really matter to clients, especially when choosing suppliers? Is it important in this age of virtual business and how is it defined in today’s fast-paced, less personal, electronic business world?
  • We questioned both clients and our members about what professionalism means to them regarding business cultural trends. In this interactive session you’ll learn how important professionalism is in this time of economic downturn, or is price the only consideration? Attendees will also assess their own level of professionalism and develop a personal action plan to address areas where they wish to improve.
  • Some tangible and intangible areas that will be addressed are: } How do your business actions affect your image? } Phone etiquette; is it okay to take a cell phone call or text in the presence of clients? (Even if they do it?) } What to wear or not to wear to look professional. Does it matter? } How do you make a great impression when taking a client to lunch or dinner? } How does written correspondence affect your professional image? } Travel questions; do you upgrade without upgrading your client?

  • Our business is changing faster than ever, through new methodologies and new ways of doing business.

  • Expand your knowledge and learn from the experience of a panel of highly respected facility owners as they share what they have learned from the wide variety of fieldwork they oversee, and the trends they see in qualitative research, including: } Types of studies that are being booked and the shifts happening as clients move closer to the customer experience: focus groups, depth interviews, ethnography, usability, online, etc. } Changes technology has introduced to the process: recruiting through email, MySpace and Twitter; } Changes that are influencing “traditional” facilities – shifts to living room set-ups, in-home interviews and shop-alongs outside the facilities; } Recruiting in an era when it’s tougher than ever – “everyone is busy,” cell phones are taking over; } The right and wrong ways to cut fieldwork costs without cutting quality; } Feedback facilities get from participants and clients on the research process today
  • Facility owners are in the position of seeing what many clients and consultants are doing today–and they’re here to give us the inside scoop.

  • Presenter: John Holcombe, MA
  • Are you still researching and dutifully reporting the “what,” as in what consumers think about, what they use, and what they say they want in a product? Do you think like Don Draper? If so, you might be stuck in an industrial age marketing paradigm!
  • Part salon and part interactive workshop, in this session you’ll gain an understanding of current trends in the client world and what’s driving their need for deep insights to fuel a new marketing paradigm with their consumer front-and-center. Insight, innovation and agility are the new core capabilities, and that means qualitative research is king. QRCs will need to develop skills so that they not only give the “what” but also the “so what” and “now what.”
  • Participate in discussions with your peers to creatively envision the future of qualitative research and ways to incorporate techniques from other fields into key areas of your qualitative practice including: consumer anthropology, consumer (and client) co-creation, and action/strategic planning. See the promise and a way to get from “What Is” to “What Could Be.”
