Five Innovative Ways RFG Are Staying Ahead of Fast-Paced MRX Change

The next time you’re shopping at the mall, take a look around. How many sharp-dressed market researchers, armed with with perfect pitches and coloured clipboards, do you see?  

As insight-driven organisations embrace trends and innovations such as Artificial Intelligence, Automation, and VR, MRX is moving faster than an everyday Twitter feed.

At RFG, we’ve kept up with the momentum to better understand customers and stay ahead of fast-paced change.

Here are the five innovative ways we’re embracing new trends and innovation in MRX right now.

We’ve developed a unique, respondent-friendly means of engagement

Our Hybrid Methodology encourages respondents to engage with interactive surveys via mobile, social, apps, games, and reward sites. This equips our clients with a greater representation of the online population they’re targeting.

Before being presented with surveys, every respondent must opt-in, accept our Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy, and pass our quality checks.

We’ve devised a three-tier quality standard to ensure quality sample

We don’t expect clients to spend time and money scrubbing clean the sample they pay for. Our Three Pillars of Sample Quality standard alleviates the headaches caused by sourcing quality data, and ensures clients get accurate, representative sample for their buck.

We know that quality people, plus quality service, equals quality sample. And when a client chooses to have us program and host their survey, features like Straight Liner Checks and Trap Questions ensure only happy, representative audiences share their insight.

We’ve adopted an incentive model that ensures everybody wins

Not only does every project clients launch via RFG deliver valuable insights. Every time a respondent completes a client’s survey via RFG, not only do they get a personal reward. A charitable donation is also made by us on their behalf.

One complete at a time, our 1 for 1 incentive model has been with us since we started five years ago. As of 2016, 100% of all donations currently go to our singular charity partner, Action Against Hunger.

We’re embracing all new waves of automated, technological change

Be it asking a mom to take a survey about baby milk on a home smart device, like Alexa, or prompting college students to give their answers to questions via VR headsets, we are always thinking about ways to stay in-tune with future, automated technologies.

Using technologies such as Digital Fingerprinting, GEO-IP Validation, and SecureGeoIPour platform weeds out wasted sample, reduces fraudulent respondents and survey abandonment, and ensures perfect respondents are ready to share insights at the time clients need them.

We’re supporting clients on their quest for quality, automated sample

We know first-hand that clients are actively seeking more efficient means of buying quality sample. On request from our clients, we developed an intuitive DIY Sample Buying tool as a better way to serve them.

Our always-on, do-it-yourself sample buying portal, The Sample Place, gives users complete control over their own sampling process. Intuitive and automated solution, the solution amplifies the research process, equipping users with innovative tools they can use to better organize their specifics.

The Future of MRX is Here!

RFG’s Three Pillars of Quality Sample

RFG’s Three Pillars of Quality Sample

“The kids need new school shoes.”

“I’ve got my sights on a case of ice-cold Bud Light today!”

“We’ve gotta get groceries at the store.”

 

Did you know? An estimated 71% of consumers shop with a definitive to-do scenario in mind.

For online Market Researchers, “We need consistent, high-quality sample”, is an everyday to-do.

When companies invest their hard-earned money on sample – they expect to get accurate, quality data for their buck. Not messy sample littered with biased results, that essentially costs more time and money.

Here at RFG, our experts have felt first-hand the tension headaches caused by sourcing quality data.

That’s why we’ve devised a three-tier quality standard referred to internally (until now!) as, “The Three Pillars of Quality Sample“.

 

Quality Sample Is Our Thing

In the world of market research, accurate, quality data is everything. It ensures the quality of results, quality findings, and quality recommendations.

According to the International Data Group, the self-proclaimed “#1 Tech Media Company in the World”, poor data quality is one of modern-day marketer’s primary concerns.

That said, we don’t expect our clients to spend any time scrubbing clean the data they pay for, before they can use it. For us, perfectly validated data walks hand-in-hand with our service.

The Three Pillars of Quality Sample are structured like so.

Pillar One: Automation
Pillar Two: Process
Pillar Three: Tools

 

Pillar One: Automation

RFG three pillars automation quality

A comprehensive suite of counter-fraud measures to keep sensitive data on lock-down, eliminate fraudulent respondents, and reduce survey abandonment.

We’ve utilised smart, automated technologies that match good respondents with the right surveys, at the right time.

Our purpose built, in-house proprietary platform ensures that only engaged and highly-qualified respondents can enter your survey. The platform weeds out wasted sample and ensures the best respondents for your survey are online and ready to share deep insights at the time you need them.

Including, but far from limited to, Proxy Survey Detection, Digital Fingerprinting, IP Filtering, and SecureGeolP ™, and GEO-IP Validation.

Pillar Two: Process

A Swiss Army-esque series of processes that enable us to eliminate respondent enervation, and ensure our industry knowledge of survey best practices is shared with our customers.

Our team are educated and experienced in all avenues Market Research – providing quick but effective solutions to research-related questions or hiccups.

We’re well-versed in ideal respondent identification processes that match our screening criteria. This optimises our sample to meet the needs of the research project. We also proudly partner with our clients and provide them with survey optimisation feedback before, during and after each project. This ensures the highest quality respondents are participating in the highest quality surveys.

But that’s not all. We continually monitor respondent feedback collected at the end of each survey, to ensure respondents are happy. Because we know from first-hand experience that engaged and appreciated respondents provide the best insight.

Pillar Three: Tools

RFG three pillars tools quality

A collection of error-prevention tools that work around the clock to correct and minimise any errors or impact on survey results – minimising sample bias and maintaining research integrity.

Data Integrity Achieves Deep Understanding and Insight

According to ezlytix.com, world-renowned researcher – Arthur Nielson – said the following quote almost 60 years ago.

In analytics, the price of light is less than the cost of darkness”.

Today, in the world of Market Research, his every word holds just as much value.

We know from experience that 99% of all respondents are good, well-intentioned people. Completing surveys not just for coupons and in-game upgrades – but with genuine intention of helping others who can benefit from just a few minutes of their time.

That said – on the scale of a global survey, the remaining 1% of “bad” respondents doesn’t seem like much of an influence. But it takes just 1% of bad data to skew sample and deem survey campaigns more useless than a wooden frying pan.

When it comes to consistent, quality data, you can rely on RFG to source good, responsible respondents more trustworthy than your childhood friends.

Because quality people, plus quality service, equals quality sample.

We’ll safeguard the quality data you need with our lives!
