Getting Started With Twitter – Market Research Hashtags

Posted on: Monday, November 01, 2010

After attending a recent conference, I was surprised at how few market research executives were on Twitter. Twitter is now one of the Top 20 most visited sites in the United States, and it is a promisingly fertile area for supporting social media research. Where status updates on Facebook are typically visible only to a user’s friends or specified subgroup of friends, 99 percent of status updates on Twitter are visible to anyone. This transparency makes them great for market research purposes. ..

What Survey Researchers Can Learn From Political Pollsters

Posted on: Thursday, December 31, 2009

As a B2B/B2C survey researcher rather than a pollster, the quadrennial spectator sport that consumes me is not the Olympics, but Presidential elections. The sheer volume of polls and news stories about polls is amazing to me, and I often begin each morning during the campaign season reviewing the latest poll results. Of course, while I enjoy poll watching, I can’t help but learn something about corporate survey research as well. What are some of the things political polling has taught me about surveying?  ..
