In this webinar presentation from last month’s Quarantined Virtual Insights Conference, Bill McDowell (Accelerant Research COO) details a case study which highlights consumers’ usage of and attitudes toward meal delivery services during the volatile pandemic period. The webinar uses this fascinating category to illustrate Accelerant’s Comprehensive Category Study methodology and details and how it can be applied to better understand – within any category – how consumer behaviors and mindsets are shifting during quarantine and beyond.

Since the dawn of qualitative research time, participant recruitment has relied primarily upon self-reported consumer information to identify qualified research participants. While the best qual recruiters have developed tricks-of-the-trade to help confirm/validate some stated behaviors, we still largely depend on taking participants at their word.

Personas are an effective tool to summarize and communicate complex market research data in an accessible way by representing those data as a fictional character or archetype. When well-crafted, personas are multi-purpose tools that can offer accessible and impactful insights guidance at many levels in an organization (e.g., marketing strategy, product development, channel strategy and creative development). However, personas are not a one-size-fits-all solution. The way personas will be used by an organization greatly influences how the primary research to develop them is designed, analyzed and communicated.
Many successful journeys begin with a map, and this webinar presentation from last month’s Quarantined Virtual Insights Conference lays out the map used by Caesarstone USA, a high-end producer of quartz countertop material in the development of personas through primary insights to inform marketing, product, and creative strategy in 2019 and beyond.

On April 14-15, 2020, Accelerant Research hosted the Quarantined Virtual Insights Conference (#QVIC2020) as a welcome distraction from the chaotic newsreel about the coronavirus outbreak and quarantine. Conference speakers, moderators, and attendees all tuned-in on Zoom and YouTube livestream from the comfort of their personal workspaces for an opportunity to hear from, and network with, industry professionals on a variety of subjects. Session topics ranged from behavioral economics and influencing insights with storytelling to timely discussions about why we hoard toilet paper and job hunting in the time of Covid-19. The 1,000+ insights professionals that attended the virtual conference were respectful of any disruptions that occurred. Though there was an appliance delivered in the middle of a speaker talk and dogs barking in the background, everyone took the interruptions in stride and made the most of the interaction.

Feedback from the conference confirmed the appreciation that both speakers and attendees felt for an opportunity to engage with like-minded colleagues in the research/insights industry and a break from the routine of working in their home silos. The question and answer sessions after each talk were lively and engaging. It was uplifting to see the attendance that the conference garnered when many people are craving connection and mental stimulation. All the videos from the conference are freely available to view (link), and Accelerant Research hopes to keep the conversation flowing about how researchers are coping and thriving in this life in a time of coronavirus.
