There is an important meeting around the corner. In the boardroom there will be questions. You need the facts, but you can't wait a week, let alone a month for the results.
Your CEO, marketing team or strategists need urgent answers, but you've already submitted your omnibus and tracker questions, and there is no more time - let alone the budget - to launch an ad hoc project for these questions alone. They'll have to go on intuition and their gut feel...
These scenarios are familiar to us all. But we have a solution.
You have a choice of 5 or 10 questions. There's no need to ask about demographics as we'll include those for you anyway.
We will give you a sample of n = 400.
We make your questions research-friendly, you sign them off.
From the moment we have sign-off, you can start the countdown. Within 4 hours you will have your report in your inbox.
In summary, that's 5 or 10 questions, 400 participants, and data in a very visually appealing format within 4 hours.
Many companies have free online tools at their disposal but not everyone has the time, expertise or resources to make this tool work efficiently for them. We've combined the speed and efficiency of online research with our market research expertise to ensure you get quick but not dirty results.

Thanks Henk but I still think this was poor journalism not informing the readers how the research is done. All it states is 5 or 10 questions, a sample of n=400, 4 hours for your report. Nowhere did it say that it is a panel, how the panel was recruited, the characteristics / demographics of the panel and the methodology used (cell phones?) to collect the data. This article should have informed the readers about these crucial aspects of this research methodology. To me it seems like an advertorial. Once again, poor journalism! Posted on 6 Feb 2013 18:00

Hi Henk, In the interest of good market research practice and to do market research and marketing industries justice, I think it is vital that these facts are made known here (in public) and not only to individuals as and when they ask for it. Transparency would be appreciated by all people in our industries. Posted on 7 Feb 2013 14:20
