Q&A with Nielsen’s Chief Research Officer Mainak Mazumbar

In our Insights Interview series, we sit down with insights
executives to discuss the state of insights and where it’s going in the future.
We were fortunate to catch up with Nielsen’s Chief Research Officer Mainak
Mazumbar recently.
Here’s what he had to say:
What is the state of
the media research industry in 2017?
Mazumbar: Acceleration
of fragmentation and digitization of media will continue to create unique
opportunities for the media research industry. 2017 is the year when media
research will deliver massive measurement innovation by incorporating various
data (e.g. mobile devices, set top boxes, over the top, location etc) into the
current measurement methodologies in ways no one ever has before.
What have been the
biggest changes in the industry since you started your career’?
Mazumbar: Decline
in consumer participation in surveys and rapid adoption of mobile devices have
posed methodological and measurement challenges. Researchers have much better
insights into media behavior than before because of digital data. New open
source tools and cloud now allows researcher to deliver measurement at speed
and scale’. New data science talent who are versed both in statistics and
computing.
Have the influx of
social media and mobile made your job easier or harder?
Mazumbar: It’s definitely
easier because social and mobile data now allow us deeper understanding of
media consumption in almost real time. The challenge is how we, as researchers,
develop methodologies addressing both scale and speed.
How has the media
consumer changed in the past few years?
Mazumbar: While
we see continued fragmentation, consumers are spending more time on media than
ever before. I think mobile and new forms of video make a huge difference and
have revolutionized how we consume and interact with media.
How can media
companies do a better job reaching the new age consumer?
Mazumbar: Continue
pushing forward new strategies for mobile and video.
What is the biggest
challenge in the media industry today?
Mazumbar: Three
challenges:
1) It’s all about consumers’ “attention” on
various platforms and devices
2) Get ahead of fraud/ viewability issues and regain
advertiser’s and consumer trust
3) Data protection and privacy
Where do you see
media research moving in 5 years?

Mazumbar: There is an increasing
need for a third party and objective view of consumer behavior. This will
require researchers to develop independent and high quality data sets that
reflect the true behavior of real people — to address biases, limitations and
incompleteness of device level data. And the speed at which clients need to
make business decisions is increasing. Therefore, we need to deliver research
and insights with speed and scale.

3 Ways Market Researchers Approach Mobile

By: Roddy Knowles, Director, Product & Research Methodology, Research Now 


 This post was
originally published on Research
Now’s Blog
.

I’ve been saying (sometimes complaining or screaming) for
years that as an industry we need to wake up and approach research with mobile
in mind. I haven’t been alone here.
Several of my colleagues ‘ here at Research Now and
elsewhere ‘ have pushed hard for change. Reminders for why we need to change
are everywhere, whether that be in the statistic du jour about mobile usage, a
dataset with more mobile participants than expected, or just sitting on a park
bench watching throngs of people of all ages hunt for Pok??mon.
In spite of constant everyday reminders and the call from
many in the market research field, true change has been slow coming. So, how
have market researchers kept pace with broader mobile trends and embraced a
mobile-first philosophy?
I’ve conducted an incredibly unscientific segmentation of
researchers ‘ cute segment names and all ‘ that attempts to capture what we’re
all seeing if we look around at our colleagues.

Response 1 ‘ Meet
Bill
Response 2 ‘ Meet
Evan Tually
Response 3 ‘ Meet
Reese Istant
There is a bit of humor, a bit of shame, and a bit of truth
in these characterizations. If you are in this industry I know you know people
who look a bit like all 3 of these hypothetical folks. And I know you can call
out your friends and colleagues for being a Reese Istant, or just ask them to
be a bit more like Bill.
The simple truth in this silliness is that we know that
embracing a mobile-first mindset is the best course forward, even if we do a
good job suppressing this truth. I know that change is hard. We all know that
change is hard. But the sooner we get there, the less painful it will be. And
the good news is, we are not too late. Someday, we will have a room full of
Bills and I’ll stop my poor attempts at market research humor.

Top 3 Trends in Mobile Surveys

By: Aaron Jue,
FocusVision
Each year, we analyze the millions of surveys hosted on our
online survey platform, Decipher, to get insights into respondent survey-taking
behaviors and investigate the latest mobile survey trends including these three
key trends market researchers need to know.
Trend #1: Online survey starts from smartphone devices continue to grow
Mobile devices represent close to 30% of all survey starts
(Figure 1). The mobile growth trend in online surveys follows the overall
global trend of device usage. Industry analysts forecast smartphone
subscriptions from 2015 will double to 6.4 billion worldwide by 2021.[1]
As smartphones increasingly replace the PC for primary
internet usage, we expect that the population of smartphone survey takers will
follow the same trend.
Trend
#2: Mobile friendly surveys = improved participation rates
Mobile survey participation rates have steadily improved
while participation rates for desktop users have remained stable.
This reflects Decipher client projects which, over the
years, have increasingly deployed mobile friendly surveys.  We’re constantly discussing best survey design
practices for mobile devices and these have been tested and put to good
use.  By default all surveys hosted on
the Decipher platform employ a responsive survey design with options for many
dynamic and mobile friendly question types (e.g. card sort,  buttons).
Researchers are adjusting to the needs of the growing usage
for mobile devices, and survey designs have gotten better and smarter.
Trend #3: Mobile penetration depends on sample source
The level of mobile participation for a given survey depends
on the sample characteristics. It is known, for instance that in the US,
minority groups, youths, and upper income individuals show higher incidence of
smartphone use.[2]
Whether a survey employs panel sample or client supplied
sample (e.g. list of customers) has a tremendous impact as well.When a
client-supplied list is used, more than a quarter of respondents access the
survey using a smartphone; that number falls to 10% for panel respondents
(Figure 2).
Panel supplied sample has always had far fewer smartphone
survey takers.  We suspect that’s because
this population expects to receive surveys, and will use a PC out of habit or
for the better survey-user experience (i.e. larger screen size, mouse /
keyboard input). But the number of mobile panel members is growing and has more
than doubled since 2013.  Besides the
increasing reliance on smartphone devices to access the internet,  the growing industry acceptance and
deployment of smartphone friendly survey designs are undoubtedly driving this
trend.
Things Market
Researchers MUST Consider in 2016
As the mobile population continue to grow, it’s becoming
increasingly clear that researchers must adhere to mobile friendly principles
for online surveys. We can no longer simply resize surveys designed for the PC
and serve them on a smartphone without any regard for the smaller screen. It
leaves respondents frustrated with tiny text, input buttons, or horizontal
scales partially cut off from view. A survey that is friendly and optimized
across all platforms drives better data and higher respondent participation.

Level Up: The Possibilities Brought to Life by Pok??mon GO

By Zoe Dowling, Lead
Research Strategist, FocusVision
In the few weeks since Pok??mon GO’s US release, it’s become
a hands down winner for this summer’s ‘craze’. Future generations will likely reflect
on these times with the same fondness as with the hula-hoop or (more recently)
the ice bucket challenge ‘ but for smartphones the needle has forever been
moved.
A Friday evening walk on Los Angeles’ Redondo Beach Pier
mirrored many landmark locations around the country ‘ a majority of visitors on
the Pok??mon hunt, many of whom came furnished with mobile battery packs and
chargers. Beyond the volume of active players, it was striking to note how
inclusive the game is ‘ from tweens to grandpas; from individuals and couples
to groups, everyone wanted to catch ‘em all.
What drove Pok??mon
GO’s unprecedented popularity?
Given the inclusive fan base of the game, its popularity
isn’t just a result of the 90′s kids eagerly reliving their youth, nor is it simply
techies delighting in the technological convergence and execution. While these
are contributing factors, there’s more going on.
Pok??mon GO is
accessible
The internet, social media and smartphones facilitate a
connectivity and global reach to the extent that memes and trends spread almost
instantaneously. News about the game swept across the country and the globe.
People want to be part of the newest trend.
At the same time, the game’s easy (and free) entry allows
anyone with a smartphone to participate themselves. Within minutes of opening
the app, you experience the wonder of being virtually positioned within your
physical location and catch your very first Pok??mon where Augmented Reality
delights. Perhaps also Pok??mon GO highlights the universal popularity of mobile
casual gaming, although maybe for the first time it becomes a visible, in fact
public, activity.
Pok??mon GO merges
technologies in a way that its predecessors didn’t succeed
Maps aren’t new to gamers but location-based gaming appears
to have gone mainstream. The use of GPS and walking your virtual character
around your physical world is very neat.

Aside from tracking your movements on the map, your physical and virtual
location are also linked by Pok??stops. Here you pick up Pok??Balls and other
items to add to your stash while learning about the micro-landmarks in your
immediate vicinity. During my first walk I discovered that my local diner is 40
years old and that the town library gardens are home to a small remembrance
fountain. Not to mention countless, hitherto undetected, Pok??mon to add to my
Pok??dex.
The inclusion of Augmented Reality (AR), which some rightly
say is a limited aspect of the game appearing only when you encounter a Pok??mon
and attempt to catch it, nevertheless delivers one of the most ‘wow’ moments,
being the final convincing glue between your physical and virtual worlds. These
technologies, coupled with classic game elements of a mission based activity
where you are awarded experience points, level ups and engage in traditional
video-game combat, deliver a compelling experience.
Pok??mon GO allows
users to concurrently escape and explore their world
Finally, it’s possible that the game brings a welcome relief
from this year’s bleak newsrooms. It provides a moment of escapism that you can
share, even just with slight smiles and nods, with the people around you.
Bringing us together, albeit for a brief moment, in an increasingly fragmented
world.
 The branded advantage
Whatever the reasons for Pok??mon GO immense success, it has given
us a glimpse of possibilities with geo-location and AR that up until now have
felt more like a futuristic hyperbole. The opportunities extend well beyond the
gaming world. For brands, the race is on to capitalize upon people’s engagement
with the game and drive traffic to their retail environments. Furthermore,
well-considered partnerships can also help position the brand as a player
within the cultural conversation.
McDonald’s Japan became the first official brand partner
with 400 restaurants as ‘gyms’ and the remaining 2,500 sponsored Pok??stops but
there’s also been many instances of unofficial linkage with signs on shop
windows offering ’10% discount for any Pok??mon captured here’ and countless
social media posts by brands all eager to be part of the moment.
Will Pok??mon GO
impact market research?
It’s hard not to start considering the implications for
research. From an immediate perspective the smartphone message, which should
already be loud and clear, is booming. People have smartphones. People are
using smartphones. This is where we’ll find them.
The willingness to use GPS and having your movements mapped
is an interesting one. In many ways, people already give out this information
freely with check-ins on various social media and review sites but perhaps this
takes it to a new level.
What would a shopper journey look like using an app with a
map overlay? What if there were virtual items within the retail environment
that people found during their journey to signal a feedback loop? What if we
could use AR to have people select items from a set of features and overlay
them to create a view of the environment as they’d like to see it?
In matter of few short weeks, this type of interaction with
research respondents feels entirely possible rather than a pipe dream. The
challenge now ‘ turning the potential into a reality.
Happy hunting!

4 Tips for Mobile Market Research

By: Sarah Canning,
Product Manager, Global, Lightspeed GMI

Mobile phones provide an ideal method to collect and
understand consumer behavior. Given their ability to capture real time
responses, there are endless opportunities with mobile market research that we
can utilize or further develop. As researchers, to capture authentic and honest
input, we must implement best practices. Marketing researchers need to think
mobile and consumer, first.
From social media apps to text messaging, the average
American spends one hour and 49 minutes in-app on their smartphone daily. What
does this mean for marketing researchers? It means mobile devices play an
increasingly important role in our research. We should consider not only the
frequency consumers are using their mobile device, but who we’re trying to
reach as well. Those difficult 18-24 year-old males you’re looking for to top
off your project? There is a good chance you’ll find them on their phone faster
than on a laptop. Now, put yourself in a respondent’s shoes. If there aren’t
enough surveys for you to take, or the surveys you receive are challenging to
view, will you stay active on the panel? Engaged? If researchers aren’t putting
out enough surveys for the demographics more likely to use a mobile device over
a computer, we could see capacity decrease over time. Because of these points
and many others, we need to put more focus on utilizing mobile devices to reach
our target audiences and create surveys that are enjoyable to take on those
devices.
   
Here are four best
practices to apply:

1.      
Design
for Mobile First:
 While both PC and mobile can produce informative
results, mobile provides real-time, in-the-moment data. Eighty-seven percent of
U.S. smartphone users under 34 are never without their phones. What does this
mean for marketing researchers? Build with the smallest mobile device in mind, then adapt for
desktop.
2.      
Limit
Length of Interview:
 Quality
results are impacted by the length of your survey
. The use of mobile
phones, globally, has expedited everything we do in the 21st century; including
the amount of time to complete a survey on smartphones. While aesthetics are a
huge part of delivery, make your surveys short and to the point. Surveys that
are as short as possible, never exceeding 15 minutes, will yield a more
attentive audience.
3.      
Build a
Trusting Relationship:
Panelists are people and they now understand the
value of their personal data, their opinions, and their time. Assure your
respondents that their personal information will not be shared.Consent is
essential
; however, this is an obstacle for many marketing research
companies. Capture data that is insightful, not invasive.

4.      
Gamify
Your Research:
 Gamifying research can result in dramatically higher
levels of engagement amongst panelists (3x higher) and should be incorporated
more frequently in survey design. Marketing researchers don’t need an overhaul
of their research solutions; they can simply form the questions in a more
engaging way. There are now many avenues to pursue when marketing to the modern
world and many distractions to overcome. Be
the distraction
 by gamifying your research.

Free Webinar: Virtual Reality – The Key to Understanding Shopper Decisions

In the CPG and retail industry, analyzing shopper decision
trees are important for both strategic and tactical decisions. Traditionally,
they’ve either been created from historical purchase data (household panel
data, for example) or attitudinal surveys (card sorting, attribute rankings, or
shop-alongs.)
But that is no longer the case! Virtual reality has changed
the way shopper research is done. Traditional methods are integrated with data
from virtual shopping simulations, providing a deeper understanding of both the
attitudes and behavior of the shopper.
Join InContext Solutions’ Rich Scamehorn and Liz Cox for
their webinar to learn the latest trends and applications of virtual reality
research, and how virtual technology is allowing retailers and manufactures to
optimize assortment and eliminate traditional decision tree barriers, such as:
-                      
Hard-to-track categories (e.g., instant
consumption products, products without UPC codes)
-                      
Hard-to-track channels (e.g., Liquor stores,
C-stores)
-                      
Low purchase frequency categories (e.g.,
cosmetics, consumer electronics)
-                      
Retailer-specific data 
-                      
Occasion-based decisions
