What is more fun than a big social media monitoring challenge? Nothing, I say! So when the Social Studies Group was hired to figure out consumer preferences for a consumer electronics product’s user interface features, we got creative.

While those of us in the research community would love for everyone to have generous budgets for competitive intelligence and knowledge gathering, it’s just not realistic.

That’s a whole lot of purchasing power–and connecting with those influential moms is an objective for brands and agencies alike.
