Raising the Bar for Online Focus Groups
Online video focus groups have been around for about 20 years. As an early adopter, I have been conducting them for over 15 years. But in the last year almost all focus groups have had to move to online services. So let’s talk about what services are available and best practices of holding discussions online to help make the experience feel and look more alive (like how you can do a product sort or show participants what items look like on a mobile screen while broadcasting on a separate device). It’s time to break out of the square boxes!

An Immersive Ethnography Technique for deep understanding
Over my long career, I have been lucky enough to work with really creative researchers who have taught me to be fearless and creative. On a project for a US based restaurant chain, I worked with my videographer to record interviews without the knowledge of those around us, focused on the research participants who are in the know, and my own brand of sneaky ethnography was born. After Covid, I’ll take this approach back out on the road to explore all sorts of restaurants, hotels, retail establishment, auto dealerships and so much more. If you can go do it, I can study it! And have fun too.
