Traditional research methods cannot keep pace with the growing number of platforms, sites and apps that a consumer has available to them to make their decision.
Whilst a handful of tech companies have entered this space to provide behavioural data on what they are doing and when, this approach leaves you no more informed as to why the consumer is behaving in such a way.
And mobile ethnography doesn't solve this either, as whilst the data can be more visual with pictures and video of the shopper journey it rarely gives you the opportunity to stop and ask the consumer questions in the moment.
The best way to overcome this challenge is to create engaging tasks and mixed research methodologies to get a better understanding of the consumer and capture their "why".
For example, when our global drinks client wanted to understand how to sell more via online grocery channels.
