It’s time to uncover the mysteries…

If Forrest Gump were a market researcher, he’d say, “Diary studies are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.”

  • Was the price too low or too high?
  • Is the quality of the product satisfactory?
  • How frequently is your product consumed?
  • Do any common problems keep arising?
  • Are there any missing key features?
  • How do you compare to competitors?
  • Does your product look good at 90 days?
  • What percentage will buy again?
  • Have feelings toward your brand changed?

With MFour mobile diaries, you’re getting validated survey opinions as well as qualitative data in the form of video, audio and images.

The 4 easy steps of an MFour mobile diary:

MFour mobile diaries are built for what matters most:

Real-time: Get in-the-moment takeaways that aren’t available with any other method. The result is natural, unbiased behavior straight from your users, as they experience your brand.

Accuracy: Survey a first-party panel of opted-in, validated consumers who are naturally shopping in-store to avoid bias inherent in pre-selected “mystery shopper” methodologies.

Representation: A large, demographically representative panel of mobile consumers lets you achieve your quotas, including Millennials, Gen Z, Hispanics and African-Americans.

Speed: To maintain a high completion speed and rate, we use instant push notifications, highly-qualified panelists, agile data cleaning, a native app and cash incentives.
