The meteoric rise of routers, aggregators, and programmatic sampling over the last decade has pushed the boundaries of innovation for delivering online sample. But the same can’t be said for market research panels. Innovation has stalled, boasting minor improvements such as social sign-in, additions of qualitative components to panel infrastructure, and creative incentive solutions. The architecture, however, remains largely in-tact, a near replica of panels past since their advent in the early 2000s. So, the big question for panel is, what’s clogging the innovation pipeline?

How Hispanic Attitudes Towards Family Influence Hispanic Advertising There was a time when nearly all U.S. Hispanics could be found in the West and Southwest. Now, the fastest growing Hispanic populations are in North Carolina and Georgia. Midwestern States, such as Iowa, have experienced triple-digit Hispanic population growth over the past fifteen years. In market research, we often use someone’s inherited race and culture as a way of predicting their preferences and behaviors. Does this approach still have value at a time when cultural groups are now dispersed across the country?

Education is often touted as a means of “balancing the playing field” and stimulating socio-economic mobility. However, lower educational attainment levels among most racial minorities in the U.S. have been the norm since college attendance expanded into the middle class following WWII. While college attendance has increased for Hispanics and African Americans in the past couple decades, it still trails that of non-Hispanic Whites.
Anyone who has ever attended a sporting event in Latin America can attest to the passion of Hispanic fandom. The songs, chants, dances, banners and other traditions are similar to fan behavior elsewhere but with the intensity dialed way up. In the U.S., Hispanic buying power recently surpassed Mexico’s entire GDP. When you add the fact that Hispanic consumer confidence is increasingly positive moving into 2017, you get a perfect storm of opportunity for U.S. sports leagues and franchises to harness Hispanic fan loyalty to elevate the entire industry.

But for the 55 million Hispanics that currently call the United States, home, that isn’t the case. Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign with an attack on Hispanic immigrants. Now that he’s in office, the conversation on immigration has erupted into a maelstrom of ignorance and intolerance. At ThinkNow, we were curious as to how President Trump’s leadership and the resulting chain of events, thus far, has affected U.S.

African-American Gen Z Shoppers Discover Brands Online But Purchase In-Store While Millennials still get the lion’s share of attention, Gen Z, the demographic cohort nipping at the heels of their older siblings, are beginning to take center stage. Known as the Plurals, Founders, or the iGeneration, Gen Z consumers may be setting their own rules, somewhat, but because of their age, still look to their parents and friends to make purchase decisions.
Since we’ve launched our Minority Owned B2B Online Panel, I’ve heard that question a lot. What’s so different about minority-owned businesses that we need a separate panel for them? There’s an assumption that your client doesn’t need to include minority-owned business sample in their research because the standard B2B sample fairly represents the business landscape. That’s simply untrue. Minority-owned businesses certainly share similarities with general market businesses. However, minority business owners face unique challenges that may have a negative impact on their ability to fully scale their businesses.
