Qualitative Research

dgm Research specializes in recruiting for focus groups and in-depth interviews. Often the best way to gather an in-depth understanding of the respondent perspective is to engage in individual or group conversations.

To complete all recruitment projects, we access our sample database of specialists from A to Z.

Focus groups  ( in-person,  online,  telephone)

– Focus groups offer the advantages of speed, flexibility and cost-effectiveness. Clients have the advantage of participating and observing the nuances of both verbal and non-verbal responses.

– We find that the synergy, or combined effect, of group interactions often results in more output than would be obtained individually.

– Participants are likely to be more spontaneous in focus groups, and their informal comments may produce unexpected results leading to new insights.

In-depth interviews  ( in-person,  online,  telephone)

– In-depth interviews with one participant are particularly suitable for sensitive subject matter.

– It also helps protect the “purity” of response, as ideas from one participant do not influence the thoughts of any other participant, especially important when testing new concepts.

– We use in-depth interviewing to elicit the “whys” behind participants’ reactions, obtaining a clearer understanding what participants mean by their answers.
