Find out what happened in this first installment of IIR USA’s TMRE podcast series, ‘Inside Insights‘! In a candid interview, Skilling recounts the methodological concerns, challenges and triumphs of conducting a national study solely via social media ‘ and how the approach subsequently played a critical role in the 2010 iteration’s modal mix.
