New Year, New Way To Sample

New Year, New Way To Sample

Happy New Year… (it is still OK to say that 2 weeks in, right?). With a new year comes the possibility of change and a focus on the self. This year I am going to read more (outside of MRX related content), exercise more and learn a new skill – what yet, I have no idea! What about you?

Whether you want to hit the gym more or learn to hit those high notes, we can help with that.

Sadly, we are not moving into personal training nor voice coaching, we are sticking to what we do best: Supplying high-quality, reliable respondents for online studies. However, what we can do, is, free up some time for you to focus on other things – whether that be inside or outside of the office.

Our DIY Sample Buying Tool: The Sampling Place gives you easy access to our 22 million potential respondents across our 13 featured countries – designed to make sample buying quicker and simpler – giving you more time to do, well, whatever…

Start 2018 off on the right foot:

A New Year, A New Way To Sample.

Interested in seeing just how quick and easy sample buying can be? Register for our free webinar on Tuesday 23rd January @ 11 AM PST and RFG’s Co-Founder, Baillie Buchanan, and Vice President of Client Development, January Khoshnood, will give you a speedy (less than 30 minutes) walk-through and answer any questions.

What’s Been Happening?

What’s Been Happening?

Between conferences, speaking opportunities and handbook generation support – RFG has been keeping busy. We wanted to take a few minutes to give you a brief update on what has been happening in the world of RFG.

1 GRBN Handbook

Data quality is something we care a lot about and something RFG co-founders Sean Case & Baillie Buchanan talk about in their State of the Industry discussion. So when we were approached by Andrew Cannon, Executive Director at GRBN, to contribute to their new handbook that talks about improving the research participant user experience we were more than happy to contribute. It is a great, free handbook that gives you 101 tips to help improve the stigma associated with research – click the logo below to get access to the handbook.

 

2. Little Bird Marketing

We recently attended TMRE in Flordia where Baillie Buchanan & Art Padilla had the pleasure of meeting Priscilla McKinney, President of Little Bird Marketing.  Priscilla reached out asking for us to contribute towards some key-takeaways from the event which she wanted to have on her blog – this is now live. Click the logo below to check out the blog post.

3. WIRE Portland Event –

RFG has been a supporter of Women In Research for some time, so when Baillie Buchanan was asked to join the discussion panel in their Portland event in mid-November it was an easy yes. What’s more is that RFG’s January Koshnood, Product Director, is also attending and will be moderating the event. Click the logo below to be directed towards the event page.

If you would like to have one of the RFG team attend an event of yours or contribute towards a blog you are writing, please SayHi and let us know.

Lets Arrange A Meeting

Respect The Respondent

Respect The Respondent

Respect the Respondent!  We heard it at Samplecon ‘17. We heard it at London Insights ‘17. We heard it at IIeX NA ‘17.

RFG Co-founder Baillie Buchanan details in her Sample Company Call Out ways in which sample companies, like ourselves, can be more than just suppliers; but rather experts in our field. This includes highlighting ways in which the survey experience can be improved so that we are making the best impression we can with our respondents. After all, as we have heard time and time again: a good survey experience will reap good quality data.

So, what 3 simple rules can we follow to ensure our respondents are happy and continue to give us their time?

Respect the respondent - media icon

1. Make the survey more engaging

Surveys have the potential to be, dare I say it, annoying. Grid after grid, scale after scale… why not mix it up a bit. Include more pictures or use icons and emojis. Challenge your participants to attach a picture. Take your respondent on an interactive shopping trip. All these can break away from the “grid” format and make for a more exciting survey experience.

Respect the respondent - clock icon

2. Be upfront with the expected time

We are busy people who have busy lives. Our respondents are no different. nothing is more frustrating when you are told something will take 20 minutes but actually ends up taking 30 or 40. a frustrated respondent is more likely to disengage or drop off. During the testing period why not time yourself or a colleague (or better yet your mom) while trying your own survey?

Respect the respondent - scissors/edit icon

3. Scrap the long survey

More questions do not equate to more data. Repetitious, compound and confusing questions not only add more time to the survey (which costs more money) but it also heightens the chances that the respondent will disconnect with your survey and the brand. Keep the questions focused and necessary.

The “Respect the Respondent” message is repeated almost as many times as some of the questions in our surveys. :P. But as Baillie says, we (sample companies) need to start carving our own place at the table. That is why we at RFG are putting our money where our proverbial mouth is. Not only do we offer industry leading sample, we also have incredible Programming and Hosting capabilities that will ensure your survey is optimized for survey engagement.

We can custom our Programming & Hosting capabilities to meet your needs or you can select one of our incredible off-the-shelf packages below:
