Insights Hunter: How Ethnography helps in finding strong & authentic insights

Interactive Workshop

Friday, November 22nd, 9-11:30 AM – 5 Rue Jules Vallès, 75011 PARIS

In our age of full digitalization, the need for marketing teams to (re)engage with their consumers and their living environment is more relevant than ever.

In order to innovate accurately and effectively, it is crucial to understand the tensions that the consumer encounters in real life.

We propose an immersive and interactive workshop to experiment together the relevance of marketing ethnography and learn how to raise strong and authentic insights.

Concrete case studies as well as guidelines for successful marketing ethnographies will complete this workshop.

2019 Finalist for the Best Groundbreaking Research Project!

LEVERAGE VIRTUAL REALITY IN SNIFF TEST TO IMPROVE FRAGRANCE DEVELOPMENT

Firmenich & Strategir teams are proud to be a finalist for the Quirk’s 2019 Marketing Research and Insight Excellence Awards

AWARD CEREMONY GALA: Monday, November 18, 2019 – 6:00 pm – 10:30 pm Est
The Edison Ballroom 240 West 47th Street New York, NY 10036 – United States

JEROME JALLAT Vice President, Vice president global perfumery consumer insights
& MARIE-CLARTE VIGON Director, Global Perfumery Consumer Insight

 “Many people at Firmenich were involved in this long-term project. We conducted about 20 tests across different categories with Strategir, who upgraded both the technology and the method.
The impact on the respondents was a huge success, as the large majority showed strong enthusiasm towards the technology, making the interview a real consumer experience! The impact on the results was also impressive, showing that the technology helped the consumers to sharpen their senses and to better discriminate the fragrances.
We learned a lot during this process and we strongly believe in the benefit of VR applied to product testing. We now have proof that consumer tests conducted with 360° VR immersion are reliable and we know which methods and environment to recommend to fulfill the research needs.”

Strategir > News > Unconscious motivations & associations: The linchpin of every purchase decision

Unconscious motivations & associations: The linchpin of every purchase decision

Neuropsychology has shown that our brain not only works consciously, but more often unconsciously, i.e. implicitly. It processes signals and messages – logo colour, bottle shape or images – at lightning speed and filters, within milliseconds, whether they are attractive and relevant or not. And so influences behaviour and (purchase) decisions.
These unconscious mental processes are triggered by functional and psychological objectives: such as relaxing, feeling comfortable or being safe. It is therefore important for marketers and for strong brand positioning. To know and consider the unconscious motivations and associations that consumers have with a category or brand to be able to activate them, for example, with the right communication or packaging design.
In our webinar we will show you how you can make the unconscious motivations of your target group visible and easy to measure and so be able to successfully meet consumer needs.

From textual analysis to sentiment analysis

In product development process, there is a need nowadays to get as close as possible to consumer behaviours and activate a consumer-centric approach.
In this context, a new strategy was developed two years ago: the “Free JAR Profiling”.
Sentiment analysis strategy allows to analyse the resulting data, and to obtain an user-friendly representation, which highlights product improvement keys in order to align the R&D process: the “Sentiment Mapping”.

Strategir > News > Reliability of consumer tests with 360 VR immersion

Reliability of consumer tests with 360 VR immersion

Adding context in consumer tests thanks to VR immersion seems promising. However are these methods reliable?
What about reproducibility, discrimination and impact of VR environments?
The objective was to verify the reproducibility of tests performed with and without virtual immersion. Study the influence of different immersive contexts. Check the impact of a self-administered questioning in the headset. Several quantitative tests were performed on different fragrances.

The results show which context is the most reliable, allow for better discrimination of fragrances and a better understanding of the impact of different environments and self-administered questioning.

11-22 juin, participez à notre shopper week !

Un principe simple : une heure dans vos locaux pour partager notre expertise et les dernières innovations dans les études shopper, pour aller plus loin dans la compréhension de la vérité shopper.
Digital, réalité virtuelle, intelligence artificielle, statistiques avancées… les nouvelles technologies nous permettent de vous proposer des solutions d’études qui mettent le shopper au centre des méthodologies pour être plus agiles et plus proches de la réalité du shopper.
Une stratégie merchandising gagnante passe par des étapes clés :

  • En amont : comprendre le process d’achat du shopper, alors même que ses critères de choix sont souvent peu rationnels et conscientisés.
  • En aval : mesurer les performances d’un nouveau concept magasin, d’une nouvelle implantation ou d’outils merchandising pour choisir et convaincre les distributeurs.

Nous aborderons entre autres quelques solutions testées et approuvées pour vous accompagner à chacune de ces étapes :

  • Le Shopper Choice Modelling permet d’identifier le véritable arbre de décision du shopper sur la base des produits librement choisis en rayon et sans induire de critères de choix. Une analyse des substitutions met à jour les clés d’entrée et leur importance respective, pour vous éclairer dans la connaissance de vos shoppers et vous guider dans les clés d’organisation du rayon.
  • Le test VR 360 immersion : Strategir reconstitue  un environnement marchand VR 360° totalement immersif et proche du réel, où le shopper peut naviguer à sa guise et reproduire un comportement naturel. Cette solution permet de tester votre stratégie merchandising de manière souple et confidentielle. Elle offre également un contrôle des paramètres qu’un test en magasin physique ne permet pas.

And the winner is… Strategir’s VR development wins top prize

Innovative use of VR for product tests wins 1st prize at the French Marketing Awards 2017!

Strategir was recently awarded the 1st prize in the Research category of the renowned French Marketing Awards (Trophées Marketing 2017) for a joint study with Firmenich. The pioneering research approach gave Firmenich higher predictability for sniff tests by using VR. Virtual Reality was used to set the context for product tests which simulated the real consumption experience of a product. As context strongly influences our feelings and behaviour, the use of VR leads to more discriminating results. [Info] This year, there were ten nominees for the Research Award. Isabelle Goisbault, Head of R&D, Strategir said ‘We are very proud to have won the 1st prize despite the strong competition’. The 2nd prize went to Sociovision with NRJ and the 3rd prize to Ipsos with France Television.

With this award, something unique happened which has never happened before: Strategir won the 1st prize two years in a row! In 2016, Strategir won the same prize for a joint project with Samsung redesigning their Samsung Experience Store in Paris: [Info]

The added value of VR for your market research is significant. The immersion truly transports participants into a realistic context. We would be happy to show you more about our case studies for VR in shopper experience, laundry detergent fragrance and beer tasting. Get in touch to use our award-winning expertise as an input generator for new ideas for your market research.

Strategir > News > Virtual immersion Golden winner at Marketing Trophy for product testing

Virtual immersion Golden winner at Marketing Trophy for product testing

A great product delivers a great experience but context strongly influences our feelings and behaviour. Product testing works best in settings that are closest to shopper or consumer life.

You may have seen our 2016 last year Golden award winning work with Samsung which showed the insights to be gained through realistic, active and immersive shopper experiences [if not, check it out here]. Sharing the same aim in product testing, Strategir and Firmenich have moved onto investigating whether VR settings positively impact consumer behaviour and improve data in sensory evaluation.
