As our very own Steve Henke points out in the August issue of Survey magazine, “mobile qualitative research provides the most authentic feedback of any methodology anywhere — in person or online.” That’s because participants are actually “in the moment” while communicating with you, not in a focus group facility or in front of their computer screen thinking about a past experience.
In the article, Steve outlines the basics of mobile qualitative research, from the benefits of trying it out to the many ways our clients are using mobile devices for on-the-go qualitative insights.
