Market research

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I've been asked to go to the Hilton Hotel today to help out with some market research on baby products. In return they give me £8 of boots vouchers :D.

Anyway what will they want me to do? Just ask me questions ect or what?

    i was stopped in my local shopping center and was asked to take part in market research for bulmers cider, i went and got free cider for sandwiches, answered a few silly questions and got 30 quid and a a few free small bottles of cider as well. i thought before i went it was a big cock up but i was glad i went.

    my dad is like the head of interweb market research at his company and usually they just ask you stuff about what products you use/why you like them/what brands you recongise that sort of thing.
    the best thing to do is just be honest with it and give as full answers as possible

    They will either ask you about the stuff you buy and use, or they will use you as a guinea pig for a new marketing campaign for a new product.

    I've done it before for a well-known brand of cheese, and they asked me loads of questions like if I would pay more for a "premium" cheddar. Er, no. I wasn't much help :no:

    Most people are simple so they lower it to the lowest common denominator.

    I agree.

    Especially in boots, the make up in there is so expensive. Superdrug is better! :lol:

    I prefer Boots; only 'cause of the advantage card.

    I know it's cheaper in Superdrug, but I'm sure there will be some cheaper things in Boots and it's nice knowing that I'm adding to my £24 something on my card. :D
