We design combined quantitative and qualitative research to meet your needs. By combining quant and qual methods we answer questions including ‘how many?’ or ‘how much?’ and ‘why?’. Also by marrying the strengths of each approach and dialing-up or down either element provides numbers and understanding.
We do this either as part of qualitative or quantitative research or as a stand-alone consumer research pit-stop, product health-check or laboratory. Typically we also conduct pit-stops in high traffic locations and interview customers for 10-20 minutes.
Benefits of combined quantitative and qualitative research vs. qualitative research:
- Provides extra decision-making substance.
- Avoids ambiguity.
- Avoids the group ‘hot-house’ effect.
Benefits of combined quant and qual vs. quant research:
- Adds understanding behind the numbers.
