Getting the most out of emerging web-based tools and recruiting methods
Learn from others’ experiences

With over 2 billion smart phones in use worldwide, it’s easy to imagine the possibilities emerging in the market research industry. For qualitative, new and faster ways to leverage technology and better reach consumers via online and mobile are constantly being introduced and upgraded.

With the plethora of choices and new news, how can you choose a tool that will work best for you, your research participants and clients?   It can be risky to try something new: as we all know technology doesn’t always seem to work as promised! Sometimes it seems easier to go with what you know and are comfortable with vs having to invest in the trials and errors of trying out a new tool or approach.   

Join us as we explore and discuss four of the tools in this realm based on member experience. Each vendor will present a brief virtual “show and tell” demo, followed by open discussion among members highlighting their personal experiences and advice for how to make the most out of each.   

To cap our workshop off, we are pleased to announce that Tory Gentes will virtually present the highlights from her popular QRCA conference presentation, “Eight Tinder Dates in a Week?! In a world of social, who needs traditional recruiting methods?”  She will discuss ways to hack your toughest recruits through use of social media, with a few solid examples from her own experience to “show, not tell" the practical lessons learned.
