Conducting In-Store Market Research During a Pandemic, the Right Way

TrendSource’s Field Agents Follow All Regulations and Adhere to Best Personal Protection Practices

TrendSource practices what it preaches: as a partner in safety compliance, TrendSource takes its responsibility to its clients, employees, and Field Agents very seriously. Above all, TrendSource works to ensure market research programs remain not just compliant with local restrictions, but are as safe as possible by following CDC best practices including face coverings and hand sanitizer. This is why TrendSource:

  • Ensures Field Agents follow all emerging CDC and WHO best practices during in-store data collection
    • This includes wearing PPE, practicing social distancing, and regularly sanitizing their hands

Health and Safety Compliance

Ensure Frontline Compliance with Health and Safety Audits

Businesses must ensure their frontline employees and locations are compliant with best-practices, local ordinances, and company policies to quell the spread of coronavirus. This is especially true when it comes to health and safety, to improve customer perception of worker safety, to avoid hefty fines, and most importantly, to halt the spread of coronavirus. TrendSource offers two market research solutions to this problem, both of which can offer real-time data and documentation available online:

  • Self-Reporting Photo Audits: Store operators and employees document their good faith efforts and self-report their compliance, which TrendSource certifies, analyzes, and packages into digestible reporting web-sites allowing companies to monitor individual locations and regions based on local restrictions
  • In-store audits: TrendSource will send Field Agents into locations to document safety measures such as distance markers, face coverings and sanitizer availability, and employee compliance

These audits can be implemented in a variety of industries including:

  • Retail
  • Restaurant
  • Grocery
  • Convenience Store
  • Manufacturing/CPG
  • Transportation

Health and Safety Panel Surveys

Conduct Product, Marketing, and Brand Research with an Online Panel of Consumers

Panel Surveys can provide your business information about consumers both inside and outside your current customer base. Custom-built panel surveys allow businesses to assemble and sort their ideal panels based on an array of demographic data points, giving a window into specific groups' experiences and perceptions.

As markets have been reshaped by the pandemic, panel surveys can give businesses a base built on quality data and analysis that will provide actionable insights in a truly volatile time. Questions Panel Surveys can help to answer include:

  • How will new marketing campaigns resonate with specific demographic groups?
  • What new paths to purchase are developing and how can your business fortify them?
  • How has coronavirus shifted consumers priorities, preferences, and pain points?
  • How likely is a new product to find a hospitable market at launch?
