Market Research Applications
BlogNog TM is well-designed for consumer research in customer experience, advertising testing, and product development.
- Mobile Shopper Insights program enables us to have participants snap photos and take videos of their “customer experiences” documenting their experiences, as if we are there exactly when people are doing the very thing we are studying.
- Image/Text Tracking enables us to have participants isolate portions of ad copy and concept descriptions that are of most value to them, and to tie their verbal explanations of what they did in the exercise.
- White Space Projectives provide a canvas onto which consumers paint their conceptualizations of sets of logos, images, words, phrases, or other visual stimuli.
- Dial Testing shows us how to pinpoint specific portions of video that attracts or repels audiences.
BlogNogTM is offered in DIY, full-service, and points in between. Training and support are provided in study design and administration.
