METHODOLOGY AND DELIVERABLES:
Consumers take us on their pilot experience using a think-aloud approach to afford us an understanding of what they are doing and thinking beyond simple observation.
For some products and categories we place the product in-home so consumers can use and experience the product. We do a pre-placement interview and get consumers to complete diaries and take photographs to describe their usage and experience. After usage, we conduct a detailed final discussion.
We use highly trained ethnographers to facilitate the discussion and piloting exercise which they record (audio and visual) and take comprehensive notes of.
We take a short video clip of each respondent to provide further insight about the actual experience and perceptions of the core communication target market.
