QUALITATIVE FORUM ONLINE

A qualitative online forum provides a way to understand the expectations, motivations, feelings and behavior of individuals. Differences between what people say and the way they behave come to light, and emotions rise to the surface. Market Research Online Communities (or MROCs) utilize a private social networking platform/website to conduct qualitative marketing research.

Most often, an online forum is made up of 15 to 30 individuals who are chosen in a targeted manner to discuss various topics under the guidance of a moderator who has numerous features to interact efficiently with participants. The core of an exploratory and collaborative approach is based on ‘listening’. It is in listening that we uncover emerging trends, or identify a service problem before it takes hold. This is a completely new way to think about marketing research.

DialogMaker, our qualitative online forum or bulletin board solution, was designed to facilitate discussion and, above all, enable the moderator to monitor a group of community members in real time. This task is made even easier through a smooth, intuitive interface inspired by the social networks.
