How Indian Market Research Industry is riding the Digital Wave

Like every aspect of the business world, Internet has completely changed the research industry as well. The recurring theme when it comes to the upcoming trends in the research industry is its increasing reliance on web-based applications and resources.

The Indian market research industry is cashing in on this digital bonanza. With the increasing penetration of the internet in India, using digital tools was inevitable. In its essence, the basics of focal groups, questionnaires and observation studies remain the same. The internet has just made these easier, more accurate and efficient.

Using the social media: The social media is one of the most efficient tool for qualitative research. It is not just cost-efficient, it also allows one to run a research campaign over a long period of time. Add to this its reach and multiple platforms that are now available to a researcher. The other advantage of social media is that its ease of consumer segregation. Usually participants come with a profile, an easy access to their demographic. Some of these also allow for group formation with specific privacy rules, making research easier and more accurate.

Mobile support: The biggest story of 2015 was the use of mobile networks as a research tool. Luckily, this is still very true. With the use of mobile phones increasing day by day, mobile research is set to be the most used tactic by Indian market research industry. The spread of mobile phones in the lower-income class also gives researchers an unparalleled range in consumers.

Using online search communities: An interesting recent development in research is the emergence of online research communities. Researchers can customise their access with closed groups, invite-only participants, live chats and bulletin boards. Since the respondents volunteer to be part of the survey, they are quick to answer and usually accurate. It also boosts connectivity between a brand and the consumers.

Focusing on the consumer: A welcome byproduct of digital access is the focus it has brought on the end-user. Today the consumer is an integral part of the process. Researchers have also gained access to consumers who were previously harder to reach. Surveys are more interactive with often on-the-spot improvisations. Easier trial runs, surveys, geo-location targeting, live chats etc has also ensured that the consumer is considered at every step.

Efficient service: Like its effect elsewhere the internet has also brought in remarkable efficiency in the research is conducted and carried out. Not only does it take less time, online research also costs a fraction of traditional methods. Results are delivered quickly and are usually accurate. The huge amount of data has also forced the Indian market research industry to come up with new tools and ways to cope.

The march of the Androids – Apple iPhone pushed into 4th place as Android models dominate online discussion according to social media research specialist DigitalMR

London (PRWEB) January 12, 2012

Social media research specialist DigitalMR releases latest findings on what customers are saying about smartphones on the internet.

DigitalMR analysed over ¼ million customer comments about smartphones across September-October 2011. Nearly two-thirds (62%) of these customer views are positive, compared with 38% negative.

Android models are the most mentioned smartphone brands. Samsung attracts the most mentions with a 30% market share of all positive comments and a 31% share of the smaller, negative comments group. Next placed is HTC with 22% positive mentions and 19% negative, followed by Motorola with 17% positive and 15% negative.

Together, the three Android brands account for two thirds (68%) of all measured online customer comments regarding smartphones.

Although Apple has fewer overall mentions it attracts more negative mentions than Motorola with a 17% share of all negative comments. This may well be related to customers experiencing teething problems when switching over to the new iOS operating system in October.

Results are based on comments posted by consumers on the major smartphone brands: Apple, Motorola, Samsung, RIM (Blackberry), HTC, LG, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Kyocera and HP across Sep-Oct 2011.

Established smartphone models from Apple and RIM (Blackberry) only account for 14% and 7% of total customer comments respectively.

DigitalMR’s analysis (powered by SocialNuggets) is based on comments posted via a range of relevant websites and open access social media platforms. It measures, not only the number of comments posted by consumers on the internet, but also their sentiment – whether posts are positive or negative in nature.

Managing Director of DigitalMR, Michalis Michael commented: “The march of the Androids continues with their increased sales and market share gains being matched by consumers’ conversations online.”

All the brands measured, achieve a positive Net Sentiment Score (NSS) for Sep-Oct. NSS provides an overall percentage score of net positive posts.

The average NSS taken across all the brands measured is 24%. This shows customers are generally very happy with their devices and are sharing the good news online.

Of the three most talked about brands on the web, HTC had a NSS of 31%, followed by 29% for Motorola and a slightly below par score of 23% for Samsung.

The highest NSS is achieved by HP with 50% (although this is derived from a relatively small base number of mentions) followed by Nokia (47%) with the lowest NSS recorded by Sony Erickson (4%) and Apple (6%).

Features

DigitalMR measures thousands of customer posts regarding the services and features attributed to smartphones.

“Operating system” and “Service provider” features generate the most comments overall. “Operating system” attracted a 17% share of positive mentions which was outweighed by 28% share of negative ones. The next most mentioned feature “Service Provider” produced 23% positive vs 19% negative. “Body” – the design and shape of the handset – received far more positive comment than negative (20% share positive vs just 8% share of negative.

In their words – customer comments sample

Nokia

“excellent choice. It still remains Nokias best phone despite other models released after it. I have one, its the most amazing device and i know i’ll be keeping mine for years and years and with easy free updates for the next five years atleast, its a solid investment”.

http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20111015041838AAnjcKx

Apple

“Agreed! I do feel disappointed – I ordered on the 7th but my order still says processing. Every person I know who wanted a 4S now has one except me – the difference – I’m the only person to pre order directly from apple rather than turn up at a store or get one through my phone company! Seems pretty unfair really!!!!”.

Economic downturn means DIY market research is here to stay according to latest blog from DigitalMR

(PRWEB UK) 22 February 2012

DIY research enables research buyers to develop and run surveys, collect findings and analyse the results themselves – thus cutting out the middle-man and reducing costs. The biggest player in providing DIY platforms is Survey Monkey which is now valued as a billion dollar company.

DIY research is now a force to be reckoned with and in the current economic climate its use is likely to grow even further as clients continue to take research projects in-house.

DigitalMR founder and MD Michalis Michael comments: “a lot of agencies were very sceptical when DIY research appeared almost 10 years ago, the majority of them just didn’t read which way the market was going. The “FREEMIUM” approach i.e. free survey platform services with paid-for optional extras and necessary functionality seems to work well for all the players in this sector. It has been amazingly successful despite what the sceptics were predicting”.

DigitalMR’s latest blog explores why DIY research has become so popular among buyers, and why in the current economic climate, this looks set to continue. However there are many potential pitfalls of conducting DIY research. These include anything from inviting the wrong people to participate and asking the wrong questions through to misinterpreting the statistical significance of the findings.

The blog also outlines what market research agencies need to do more of to win over clients from DIY providers.

Amazon set to challenge Apples domination of the tablet PC market, says online research specialist DigitalMR.

London (PRWEB UK) 4 April 2012

Social media research specialist DigitalMR releases latest findings on what customers are saying about tablet PCs on the internet.

The overwhelming majority of customers are highly positive in their views on tablet PCs as expressed on the internet. DigitalMR measured thousands of comments for slate devices across Dec 2011 to Jan 2012. 71% of all views measured were positive with only 29% negative. Apple recorded a 32% share of all positive comments and 35% of the smaller pool of negative ones. Hot on its heels is Amazon with 30% of positive mentions and a 33% share of negative.

Results are based on comments posted by consumers on the major tablet brands made by: Apple, Motorola, Samsung, Blackberry, HTC, LG, HP, ASUS, Amazon and Sony across Dec 2011 to Jan 2012.

DigitalMR’s analysis (powered by SocialNuggets) is based on comments posted via a range of relevant websites and open access social media platforms. It measures, not only the number of comments posted by consumers on the internet, but also their sentiment – whether posts are positive or negative in nature.

Managing Director of DigitalMR, Michalis Michael commented: “Can Apple maintain its dominant position among tablet PCs? It will be interesting to see if Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet can continue to convert its positive online sentiment into sales.”

All the brands measured, achieve a positive Net Sentiment Score (NSS) for Dec-Jan. NSS provides an overall percentage score of net positive posts. A positive score means a tablet attracts a higher proportion of positive than negative posts.

The average NSS taken across all brands measured is 42% which is high compared with other industry sectors, although slightly down on the average NSS for Jul-Aug 2011 (50%). Customers are still generally satisfied with tablet products and services and are happy to spread the word online.

Apple and Amazon both achieved a below average NSS score of 38%, but given their relative dominance in the market, customer expectations are likely to be higher. Tablet brands that achieve the highest NSS are Sony 72% and HP with 56%. The lowest performing tablet was Motorola with an NSS of 33%

Amazon never markets it as such and the word Android can’t even be found on the product page. It’s designed as a device to facilitate consumption of Amazon content. Anything you get out of it beyond that is just a bonus”.

Latest Online Research Shows American Express as Most Popular US Bank with a 35% Share of Positive Comments on the Web

Colombus, OH (PRWEB UK) 2 May 2012

DigitalMR analyzed tens of thousands of online customer comments regarding US banks for the month of January 2012. Two thirds of comments monitored were positive (67%) about their customer experiences, compared with 33% being negative about their customer experiences.

DigitalMR’s report (powered by SocialNuggets) analyzes tens of thousands of mentions and customer comments posted via open access social media platforms and relevant finance related websites. It measures not only the number of comments posted by consumers on the internet, but also sentiment – whether these posts are positive or negative.

Results are based on comments posted on the major US banks: CitiBank, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, US Bank, American Express, HSBC, Capital One, Barclays, JP Morgan Chase and US Bancorp.

The banking service brands with the highest share of overall mentions were: Amex (29%), Citibank (20%) and Bank of America (18%).

There was, however, a large difference between the positive and negative mentions that these banks generated. Amex achieves the highest share of positive comments (35%) more than twice its share of negative ones (16%). Conversely, Bank of America attracted more than twice the share of negative comments (28%) to positive ones (13%).

Taking each bank’s positive and negative scores into consideration, Amex achieves the highest Net Sentiment Score (NSS) with 63%, followed by US Bank with 61%. The only bank with a net negative score was Bank of America with a NSS of (-4%).

Ryan Rutan, President of DigitalMR USA commented: “Online sentiment continues to show contrasting pictures of two banks: Amex which is very positive and Bank of America where sentiment is highly negative. This represents a huge challenge for Bank of America to turn this around.”
