The 4 main reasons to choose online communities when working on innovation projects
Online communities with consumers (also known as online Qual research) represent an agile solution, very rich in meaningful insights. Especially when working on marketing & innovation projects.
Below you will find the reasons why online Qual research and online communities are particularly suitable for innovation:
1/ Rich content & great modularity
> Allowing to:
– illustrate typologies & work on personas,
– dig deep into the “why” or “why not »,
– but also find inspiration and co-create with consumers.
Indeed, the iterative “test & learn” approach, the possibility to adjust / adapt the “questioning” along the way, the possibility to have several stages of interrogation (according to the project / product / service development phase) make online Qual perfect for innovating with consumers or ensuring internally the project follow-up.
2/ Ability to easily be integrated into larger work processes
> A methodology that can take place over a longer or shorter period of time (depending on the needs). And which can be articulated perfectly with strategic / innovation workshops and / or quantitative studies and / or in-depth interviews / group meetings.
3/ A pleasant user experience
> Whether used internally with the project members and / or externally with consumers and / or influencers (at a worldwide scale), the user experience when using online platforms is intuitive and pleasant today:
– Ergonomic & attractive design,
– Fluid navigation,
– Easy connection,
– Clear questioning structure.
4/ Possibility to choose among a variety of agile online tools
> Many attractive and easy-to-use tools (free and / or paid) can meet the different project objectives. Indeed, several independent online platforms exist and offer various features to orchestrate meaningful and fluid conversations.
