As the market research industry advances its methods and introduces new technology, quality data continues to rank as the top concern for research professionals. After all, good data hinges on honest, authentic consumer feedback. But fraudsters continue to make quality data collection challenging by creating duplicate accounts, speeding through surveys, or dishonestly answering questions in order to earn an incentive. Survey fatigue and burnout is also an issue, as some respondents abandon surveys due to poor user experience and design. No panel is immune to this kind of behavior, and there’s no perfect antidote to the problem.
At uSamp, we take data seriously. We believe that ensuring quality data requires a multipronged approach that involves channel sourcing, technology, and extensive panel engagement and profiling.
It Starts With the Channel
Good quality data begins with good quality panelists, which is why we source panel traffic from only the best partner sites. These web publishers are thoroughly vetted before joining our affiliate network and sending traffic into our panel for surveys. Not only that, we solicit client feedback on survey response quality so we can weed out any sources that aren’t up to snuff.
Technology Leads the Way
As a proactive response to data problems, we’ve developed unique identification algorithms to aggressively remove duplicate and fraudulent respondents. Following industry standard, we employ double opt-in registration to validate all new panelists. For our mobile panelists, we use GPS functionality to validate that respondents are actually where they say they are, ensuring their responses are based on a real experience with the product or vendor.
Healthy Panel, Healthy Data
When it comes to our panelists, we make every effort to combat fatigue by designing highly engaging surveys. We know that a poor user experience has a direct impact on response rate and quality, which is why all of our surveys—from mobile to online—are built with the user in mind. We also extensively profile our panel so that the right people get matched to surveys that are relevant to their interests. Lastly, we frequently take a critical eye to our member database, deactivating accounts with suspicious behavior.
Data is of the utmost importance to us. No matter how big or smart it may be in the eyes of the media, data is useless if it isn’t real and authentic. In the end, our goal is not merely data quality, but data integrity.
Over 12 million. That's the number of people around the world who've subscribed to our panel and are ready to offer insights for your project.
But we also understand that it’s not just about quantity. Depth and diversity are equally important. We acquire traffic from a myriad of reputable web sources, so that you can find the exact audience for your research. Looking for healthcare workers who are interested in consumer electronics? We have them. How about businesspeople who own pets and have tattoos? We have them, too.
Profiling and Targeting
Our panel is extensively and continuously profiled, allowing for complex segmentation across a wide range of personal identifiers. We collect hundreds of data points about every panelist, so you to target an audience based on predefined criteria. Asking thousands of questions has allowed us to tag our panelists with more than 52,000 keywords for fast, effective segmentation. We’ve also developed profiles for some our most popular segments based on our existing body of research, so you can approach your study armed with helpful insights about your target audience.
